food. oh...and packing.

we leave in 5 days and can't stop thinking about and dreaming about and talking about all of the food we're going to indulge in while in the mediterranean. of course, we're excited about everything else as well, but, particularly excited about the food. anyway, we've been doing some cooking for ourselves recently...well, mostly greg. although, I must admit, I've fallen in love with baking cupcakes.

ok...so onto the packing situation. I decided to take an initial stab last saturday by placing everything on our bed that I thought I wanted to take. I should have taken a picture...it was something to see. just imagine towering piles of folded clothing...neat piles nonetheless and some of them leaning. after about an hour of selecting tops, pants, shorts, a dress and a swimsuit to put back in the closet I finally decided to see how we fit into the old suitcase. am just bringing the small carry on as I'm shooting to be the savvy world traveller. let's just say it's STILL a work in process and i'm motivated to have some space to spare...you never know what flea market treasures will make their way into my world in these next few weeks.

A "small carry!?" That's craziness! I'd go for the huge, overflowing 49 lbs suitcase! Never know what mood with strike with clothes ;)

Those cupcakes are beautiful :o) I always am drawn to baking more so than cooking. Don't know if that's a good thing, though! You are going to have so much fun in the mediterranean! Do leave lots of space in your suitcase :o) I know you are going to find loads of treasures. Good luck with the packing, too! I like to try and pack light as well... I really bring the bare minimum...! Take care & have fun!
