Friday Five

I’m still not ready to be back to reality. My Caribbean trip was simply too amazing! And with views like this, who would want to go back to being a responsible adult with a schedule? Not me, that’s for sure.

Okay. Deep breaths. Let’s cope with real life by distracting ourselves. A brand new Friday Five is here!

1.I am beyond excited for this new Girl Scout Cookie flavor! Seriously, when can I get my hands on a box?

2. Loving this write up in the LA Times on my alma mater. “Party school” definitely not apply anymore.

3. A healthier version of Mongolian Chicken? Yes please!

4. While I haven’t been to this Caribbean Island, I can attest that it doesn’t take long to feel like a local in the Caribbean.

5. I am so excited for this pie recipe from Recipe Girl! Loved it as a kid and can’t wait to make it myself.

Getting Ready for a Caribbean Getaway

Guys. July has flown by! I’m still wrapping my brain around the fact I leave for the Caribbean in less than a week.

My pre-travel to-do list is still being chipped away at, but most of the important tasks have been completed. Updated passport for my stint in the British Virgin Islands? Check. Eye mask, neck pillow and ZzzQuil (love it so far!) for sleeping on my red-eye flight? Check. All of the mosquito repelling things to keep me Zika virus-free? Check. Discovering a schedule of happy hours for two of my destinations? Check. (See here and here.) Bring on the Painkillers! The cocktail, no pills!

Really hoping this ZzzQuil helps me sleep on my flight!

But the biggest thing on my to-do list is to pack! As my trip gets closer, the pile of clothes to pack continues to grow. This is not a great thing considering I’m going to have to cut out many cute summer dresses in the name of packing in a carry-on for my trip! Luckily, my destination boasts a very even-keeled climate, where the average high during my stay will be 85 F practically all the time.
