I don't typically consider myself a forgetful person, but for some reason whenever I housesit my brain shuts down during the packing process.
It could have something to do with the fact that I usually "pack" in a 5 minute period of time.
Whatever the reason, I've forgotten some fairly important things.
(PS - That's Missy in the picture above. She likes to survey her empire (aka: yard) when she gets the paper in the morning)
Shoes: Once during the summer, I moved into a house wearing flip flops. I had all my work clothes for the next couple of days, but I had neglected to bring work shoes. That resulted in a trip home at midnight to grab shoes for the duration of the trip.
Makeup: Kind of a necessity for me during the work week. Luckily the absence of said make up was discovered on a Saturday, so I was able to retrieve it prior to Sunday. Hooray!
Socks: Not the end of the world, but my feet were fairly cold for a day.
Mousse: This resulted in a pony tail day.
Shampoo/conditioner: Another pony tail day.
Tights: Again, not the end of the world. Just another one of those, "Seriously, Emily!" moments.
Underwear: that was an interesting day.
Hair dryer: I woke up, took a shower, went to grab my dryer - discovered I'm a loser who forgot something important. I don't like going to work with wet hair, so I finished getting ready then drove across town to my place to get the hair dryer and finish the hair process.
I still got to work early. BOOM!
There have been many, many more items that I have forgotten, but most of them were little things that don't really make a difference in the getting-ready process (earrings, iPad, etc...)
This has nothing to do with anything I just said, but I hope you all have a fantastic Thanksgiving filled with family, friends, and food! I expect to see many, many delicious food photos in the next week.
Side note: I'm glad that the trees still look like this. I will never get tired of these colors.
