Ladies Trip to Mexico Packing List

As much as I love a good vacation, sometimes I think I might like preparing for a trip even more. Planning activities, scheduling flights, and making packing lists is my idea of a good time. So, you better believe that ever since we decided to take this Mexico trip, I’ve been busy compiling my official Ladies Trip to Mexico Packing List.

Most people I know hate packing but for me, it just builds the anticipation of the trip. (Confession: I started my packing list two months ago.) If you’re one of those people who just dreads packing, this post from one of my favorite bloggers has some great tips.

As I mentioned last week, we’re staying at an all-inclusive resort for the first few days, then we’re switching to a regular hotel for the remainder of the trip. This gives us a chance to both lay by the pool without having to think about a damn thing other than our next drink, as well as the opportunity to take a day trip to Tulum and explore the city a bit.

So, with a general schedule of lounging by the pool, hitting the beach, a day trip to Tulum to see the ruins, and a few nights out, here are some of the new things we’ve added to our Ladies Trip to Mexico Packing List:

  1. Extra Cheeky Bikini Bottom
  2. Trekkie Short
  3. Suede Sandal Espadrilles
  4. Cropped Tank
  5. Drawstring Backpack
  6. Floral Caftan
  7. Scoopback One-Piece
  8. Tie Dye Sundress
  9. Slide Sandals

Of course, we’re bringing more than just these nine items, but they’re a good representation of what we’re packing. Our vacation selves are all about plenty of breezy dresses, swimsuits, and fun sandals.

P.S. It took a LOT of trial and error before I landed on that J. Crew one-piece. We have an upcoming post covering all of the different options I tried out along the way. Anyone else missing Victoria’s Secret’s swimwear line?

Attaching a wood fence to a chainlink fence

As I mentioned in my last fence/gate update post, I helped Erika attach a wood fence to the chainlink fence in her backyard. The process was similar to when I converted a chainlink fence to a wood fence, except in this case, we left the chainlink fence intact. This method is a good option if you want to add a little more privacy to your yard or camouflage a chainlink fence while you wait to save up for a completely new fence.

Fence Updates and Two-Panel Wood Driveway Gate Plans

Hellooooo, I’m thinking about fences again! You all had the pleasure of following along as I moved and rebuilt the fence in my backyard and then converted a chainlink fence into a wood fence along my driveway, and now it’s finally time to build that driveway gate. Of course, I can’t just build a driveway gate and leave it at that, I’ve also decided to cap the entire fence to cover up the dogear pickets and give everything a cleaner and more finished look. HOORAY!
