So this is day 3 of us traveling cross country. We (my husband and I + our two cats) are all feeling the effects of spending so much time on the road. It’s not helping my husband and I that every day we are changing time zones. We need those extra hours!! Today we are heading through OK, MO, IL, IN, OH. It’s a lot. For us. For the animals. But tomorrow we are only going to be 6 hours from our final destination, so we’re gonna keep on trucking!
As I mentioned yesterday, for long distances comfy clothes are key. Now if you have been paying attention to my past blog posts you know that I’m not a yoga pants fan. Road tripping is not an excuse to wear them, but I’m fully aware of the need for comfort when spending 11 hours in a car. So today I choose my own version of yoga pants: a comfy cotton skirt from Gap Outlet and my favorite white tee from Madewell.
I also have come to discover what things I absolutely need on this trip. A big tote is key for throwing everything in, as well as a comfy cardigan as we have been blasting the air in the car. My other necessities are my Chromebook for working, my Kate Spade small bag for makeup and hair necessities, my lotion and face wipes. Both of those are crucial as my face tends to get oily with stress and with just traveling, but I don’t want to get to dry either. Delicate balance. Then lastly, we have been trying to drink as much water as we can to stay hydrated, and to keep us from being hungry all the time. We have been trying to limit our road food as our bodies are already out of whack with everything.
Are we there yet?!
NOTE-my sincere apologies for the amateurish photos. The hotel rooms have not been prepped for blog pics apparently. 😉
