10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, ...

It's almost time for three, two, one--- take-off! Chickens Abroad is gonna fly!

We got luggage tags filled out and attached and we are obviously prepared to do sink laundry.

I've read a lot. Some of these books came long before our reservations. I love reading travel books.

I've listened to your advice and I am thankful for your tips and wisdom. Crocs may not be much to look at, but my mommy proved their worth when she and I were in Barcelona.

what the?!
OKay. So there is still lots left to do, including more laundry. Help!

And if you are wondering about the house that we want, we've submitted an offer... nothing like a last minute bureaucratic decathlon to make things interesting! There were as many hurdles in the last 3 days as I've ever seen in an Olympic event. We are still accepting prayers and good wishes. Thank you.

clean fridge
clean pantry
clean closet
drop off donations
pick up rental car
sigh deeply
drive to LAX

Never give up!
Never surrender!

Oh Natalie - - it is never ending!

What you might forget to take, you can purchase. Just have a fantastic time, enjoy yourselves, and come home totally refreshed.

I had to laugh when I saw your travel books. I have quite a large collection myself. People have teased me about it.

Sending prayers and good wishes your way. I hope all of you have a wonderful time.

Friends of Natalie and family,
I just drove by the lovely blue house. It is worthy. More than worthy. Awesome. They MUST get this house, so visualize!!!!

Sara said...

Wow, it's getting close. I'll be watching the blog to see what adventures you are experiencing along the way. And my prayers and good wishes are with you all! We loved England, by the way.

Wishing you all the happiest days, and safe journeys to all your destinations, Natalie! Can't wait to hear and see all! It's been very busy on my end, so I've been slow to visit, but think of you so often, my friend :o) Rlax, enjoy and celebrate--you're going abroad! :o) ((HUGS))

I always hear that crocs are extremely comfortable. I just can't get over how they look. It overshadows any comfort I'm missing out on and I get reminded what clothes would I wear with them?

I guess its just something I have to stop thinking about and just buy a pair. I'm sure they're as comfortable as people say they are. It'll definitely be and epic day when I buy a pair and it'll definitely be on my blog haha.

Best of luck on your adventures
