 Am I up for the challenge?

I can not even tell you how excited I am about getting away this week with my Dave. Our 8th anniversary is next Tuesday. We are celebrating a little bit early and leaving for Chicago on Thursday. We are only going to be gone for about 24 hours, but at this stage in our lives, it still takes some work.
I am trying to get the house spotless before I go (hahaha).
I am trying to get things organized for my mother in law, who will be spending the time here with the boys.
I am praying for her sanity.
I am trying to decide what to bring on our little trip...
Here is the problem:
Yes, that is a problem.
We are taking a train, and using public transportation. We have planned some stuff to do around the city, so we don't want to have to lug a bunch of luggage around.
Heaven help me - I don't do well with packing light. :) Everything both of us are bringing will have to fit in that one bag.
It is a challenge people - but I think I'm up for it. I think.
Hmmm... Cute shoes, or tooth brush?

I'm all about cute shoes. After I packed a suitcase full (of cute shoes) for a trip to DC, and I ended carrying my luggage several blocks uphill I learned my lesson. I never even wore the cute shoes. Now if I am going to be walking a lot I choose comfortable shoes. I'd go with the toothbrush. Maybe you could squeeze a pair of cute sandals in there though. Have fun:)

Are they comfy cute shoes?! If not comfy, then go with the toothbrush... I tried London on cute shoes and it didn't work so well.

Just pack one shirt & 3 scarves! You will be able to have a new outfit everytime you go out!

Cute shoes, of course, but make sure they are comfy! Chicago always means a fair bit of walking! Couldn't you just slide your toothbrush inside your shoes!!! :)

last time i was in chicago my feet were killing me after a day of shopping & walking...bring a very comfy pair of shoes otherwise you'll end up buying a new pair at the Nike shop in the magnificent mile...that's what my mom ended up doing...I was too stubborn and paid for it later. ;-)

have the BEST time!
