premonitions...

At the butt crack of dawn on Thursday morning, I will be driven to a train station for the first time. I will have an over sized suitcase and a duffel bag- that will have approximately 12 outfits, 10 pair of shoes (because it's good to be prepared for 3 1/2 days) and fabulous accessories like this from Sorrelli Jewelry.


(which by the by, they are offering an extra 5% discount on everything - use discount code "BLOGHER5"- even sale stuff...PLUS through Friday- they're having a summer sale of 15% off a $100 purchase- so that's 20% off- marvel at my math skills, do ya?)

Oh yeah- my suitcase will also contain vodka- if you know of some train conductor security measure that may confiscate my liquor, please tell me now!

My husband will make my departure miserable because that's what he does. That's why this will be my breakfast...
I will kiss the little dumplin's good bye for. the. first. time. evah!

Once in Chicago, you may notice a bounce in my step (or stumble, depending on how many Xanax it takes me to get out the door) with a gleeful, yet cluelessly, giddy smile (or glaze). I will be the only one without a Blackberry or i-Phone. I will be using a borrowed laptop that I have no idea how to use. I bought a new Nikon camera- which I also, have no idea how to use, but at least I didn't have to resort to the disposable and Ashton Kutcher is kinda cute and digs old chicks.

I may be groping people I admire in hopes that the greatness may rub off- or just for fun- who knows. I will be in awe of people that have talents that I can only dream of. I may get misty eyed. I will have waterproof mascara.

Bitch you better not forget about US little people. I know you'll meet lots of cool peeps and be all high falutin. Just remember, I still remember what happened in OUR box. Now don't you forget that!

P.S. Get really drunk and take lots of pics.

I'm sort of jealous but at the same time glad I'm not going. I am so awkward around new people. It sounds like you are very well-prepared for your trip. Have a fantastic time!!

TWELVE OUTFITS?! ARE YOU KIDDING? The Vodka, I get. And hopefully, will get. A lot of.
As for your camera, I will teach you how to use it when I get there. No cell?! You had best get to a payphone and call my cell the minute you arrive. I will meet you wherever! I better go pack some more outfits. Dang it.
