Let's get the show on the road.

Am I the only one who can’t sleep before traveling? Seriously, I went to bed around midnight and woke up naturally at 6 am. Why? I guess enjoying the luxury of sleeping in during my 2-week holiday is going to be out of the question. Nonetheless, I made use of my time.

So 6 bags and a purse later, I probably packed more clothes then I will wear and no jacket. Let’s hope Texas doesn’t get another week of ice.

Due to some logistical issues we had a last minute change of plans and had to hire a car service to drive us 60 miles. Side note: This is not a normal occurrence, trust me never again will I spend that much money on a car ride. Our driver Chuck was hilarious! He said he ponders on many things while driving clients from Chicago to California. WHAT? I have made some cross-country road trips, but that is nuts! My hats on to Chuck!

The Amtrak station is amazing! We have a Subway, comfy chairs, and huge TV’s. Since are bags are checked we are now impatiently waiting to get this show on the road.

This is my “I want to be in Texas now” face!

If you are traveling today or this weekend be safe out there!
