I ended up buying a tour guide book of Ireland, then I took it back. haha I didnt really need it. I looked through it and got what I wanted out of it then brought it back. I should have just did that at the store...but I like to be complicated at times. Chuck found a euro 5 cent and a 2 pence coins and gave them to me. She said buy her something with it....I'll bring her back a rock and that should about cover that. However, I dont have a good record with getting rocks. Last time I took some in Myrtle Beach from someones front lawn landscape...and they had cameras. So for all I know I could be on America's Most Wanted! I'll have to be in disguise when I leave the country. =)
So my mom asked me the other night if I was nervous for my trip to Ireland. I told her no not really and she proceeds to go on with "Well I have heard and seen a lot of plane crashes on the news lately...." THANKS MOM FOR MAKING ME EVEN MORE NERVOUS FOR FLYING!
I'm gonna update tomorrow with my list of packing items that I wrote down and then see if I need anything else.
Did I mention I bought super cute high heel shoes for 5 dollars yesterday? Yes I did! And 7 pairs of jeans for 5 bucks a piece. That is what I call a bargain!!! =)

I still have no idea what to pack yet. Well besides a rain coat! That was the only thing so far I have been told to bring. Haha Although I don’t have a rain coat and I don’t want to go out and buy one so I will just bring my umbrella. Besides a little rain won’t make me melt. I keep hearing stories from people who have traveled to Europe before to not bring our appliances. Apparently our blow-dryers and straighteners have a field day with their electrical outlets and blows things up. I was already told I didn’t have to worry about a blow dryer thanks to James’s sister, but not sure about the straightener. Hopefully I can find a cheap on in Ireland because I would feel really horrible if I blew all the fuses in the house because of my straightener.
I ordered my pounds and euros. I get them by the end of this week! I am anxious to get them. I think it will make my trip more real. Yea right! I will be in Ireland and it still wont feel real. I might have to be pinched a few times so I know that it is. Haha I am really looking forward to it and seeing Bomber (a horse) because he is the whole reason I am going there…=P haha totally kidding…kinda. =)
I think the only thing I am not looking forward to is drinking tea and having to go home. I am more of a coffee girl, but since the Irish are big tea drinkers I will most likely be drinking that. I hope Jessie likes tea so I can sneak some to her and make it look like I drank it…ahh shoot my plan is ruined now since its on here! I guess I shall do as the saying “When in Rome….” So my butt will be drinking tea…with milk (yuck!) and have to like it! HOWEVER! A certain someone will be drinking coffee to make up for that in America. =) Sounds perfect!
Tomorrow I will post a lot of the places I would like to see and do as well as the things that are already planned.
