New travel gear :)

on June 8, 2016

Hey, so I mentioned that I had totally scored on my ideal travel backpack, and I’ve since received it.  It’s fabulous, and I did a “test-fill” to see how it would hold up to my usual carry-on packing needs.  Here it is, with most of my typical carry-on stuff, roughly clockwise: rubbah slippahs, Travel Planning Binder, puzzle book, pashmina, water bottle, powder flavoring, spare clothes, makeup bag, glasses, gum, inhaler, chargers, hair clip, smartphone (see how the phone case matches the backpack? squee!), chargers, watch, pen/highlighter, travel wallet, snacks, small first aid kit (in the red pouch), portable charger (the shiny blue thing), headphones, 7-day med case, Charmin To-Go & Wet Ones, and 3-1-1 bag with toothpaste/sanitizer/lotion.  Plus, the new backpack of course!  It fit beautifully, with space to spare.

Not pictured: my neck pillow, which I would clip to the top handle of the bag, more protein-y snacks like pepperoni, and my iPod Touch (because I took this picture with it)!

 

Also, remember this post about the Disney TAG (Travel-Accessories-Gear) collection?  Well, one day I received a free shipping code from Disney Store, so I decided to browse around the site.  What did I come across but the single solitary item from the TAG collection available on DisneyStore.com?  So, I hate umbrellas, and usually just get wet rather than use one, never mind carry one around.  But this one is adorable, and I had the free shipping code, another offer for 25% off Disney Parks items, and 3% back from ebates.  For $15.63, not including the ebates rebate, this umbrella is mine and the children/husband have been instructed to never ever touch it, lol.  So now I have something from the TAG collection, and it gives me hope that other items will be sold online in the future.

Also, you guys, I’m seriously considering ending the blog.  Posts get very few views, and with so little feedback, I’m not sure what people are wanting to hear about.  The renewal date is coming up in a few weeks.  Just FYI.

We’re moving right along on the Quinceañera planning…finalizing invitations in the coming weeks!
