365 Inspirations—77: Packing my BRIGHT PINK suitcase

"If I'd known how much packing I'd have to do, I'd have run again."—Harry S. Truman

Not ALL bags look alike.

I shouldn't have any trouble spotting my mine, it's BRIGHT PINK! Don't ask what inspired me to buy this glowing thing. The handle fell off my last one, so I got this one recently. It's a hard-case Samsonite carry-on. It should do the trick!

Just finished entering grades and doing lots of last minute running around before our trip.  I went to the bank, drugstore and post office. Now I have to get ready to go to school to proctor a test from 7:30-9:40pm! It's going to be a VERY LATE night AND we have to get up at the crack of dawn tomorrow to get on a bus, the link rail and then our flight to Hawaii.

I still haven't really packed!

Well, I've sort of packed, but it's not in any organized fashion. I'm sure I'll forget something, but there are always stores, right?

Anyway, got to go get organized now.

P.S.—Tomorrow I have a very special author who will be appearing here to talk about her new book and tips related to it. I think you'll all like it. It goes well with the season. I'll give you a hint: THINK spring cleaning! Don't miss out. Stop by here tomorrow to learn more!


Do you often feel rushed before you go on a trip? Do you pack several days before or the last minute?


  1. Happy travels. I like your suitcase.

  2. Oh, I love the pink suitcase! Very stylish and unique!

    I usually end up rushing around at the last minute, afraid I'll forget something. But you're right--there are stores! I hope you and your husband have a safe and wonderful trip!

  3. I try to pack days before but I always feel rushed regardless. There's always so much to do! Plus, I'm a total girl and end up packing way more than I need to. I love your new suitcase. I hope you have a fantastic time!

  4. I usually pack slowly - a few days before and adding things here and there. Last minute packing stresses me out so I would rather get it done beforehand :)
