I thought it might be fun to see (and record) what we packed as essential items.........
It's really NOT that exciting!
Rick has to have several boxes of his favorite "Clinical" deodorant - he must eat the stuff because he always runs out - but he smells good! And then he really enjoys his Instant Buttered Grits on Saturday mornings before he goes to the gym....it's a southern thing! I have to have my Crest Whitening toothpaste and my Volumizing hair products although in this London humidity it does not really matter one bit.
You see the chili mix, it's not that we can't make it here but the chili powder is somehow MUCH hotter than I like. Of course we bring back our favorite medicines. Day and Night Nurse are great and most over the counter headache meds here have codeine in them, but when you are sick you don't want a "hit or miss" drug! This might seem strange but I know lots of others who do this, Zip Lock Bags .... real heavy plastic, air tight, gallon bags. They keep our ice cubes, (the ones that come out of Ice Cube Trays) from sticking or smelling.
That's all, and it fit in my new Christmas gift Carry-On Tumi bag....
which I can never carry on because my Volunizing hair product and whitening toothpaste are much more than 3 oz.
But that's the way I roll!
