But this time, I am trying really hard to be more strategic about what I want to take, especially since I am only going to be gone one weekend. I already know that Saturday will be SIU apparel day. As you can see, Addie has her outfit all picked out. But since you couldn't pay me enough to wear my old spandex dance team outfit, I am opting for an SIU tee and jeans. I also have to remember to pack my Baby Bjorn carrier. Uncle Ryan and Aunt Meg bought it for me for my shower and I think Ryan is secretly excited to get to carry Addie around in it this weekend. And that's fine with me! I mean...how else will I be able to hold her, a hotdog AND a beer at the tailgate? Just kidding. Okay...maybe I'm not.
Anyway, I suppose I should get to my packing instead of sitting here blogging all day. I might not have the opportunity to post this weekend with all the homecoming activities we have on our agenda, but I promise to post a very exciting recap of the weekend when we get back on Sunday! Until then, say a little prayer that Addie learns how to fall asleep in her car seat again. Otherwise, it is going to be a long 5 hour drive. SIU...here we come!!!
