Packing for Costa Rica

I have to make this snappy, it's ridiculously late and I have to be up in 5 hours. But this girl is on vacation energy - so I had to squeeze in a post. Packing for Costa Rica has been interesting, to say the least. 

First off, I rarely travel for just pleasure. I hook on quick getaways before or after work trips, or simply find a 3-hour adventure while I'm on the road. That's why this trip is so exciting to me! i am finally the person in the airport wearing tropical clothes, and not frantically checking emails while lugging collateral and signage! Packing has been a tinsy bit fun.  AND then, the rain forest adventure is a little different from the typical beach vacay- which is also why packing has been interesting!! Just wait..  

So in no particular order.. What I've been doing for the last 5 or 6 days to get ready for our trip! 

^Turning off my work email at 6 p.m. Today.  I never do this, and this is the longest chunk of time I've ever had off.^^

^^^It took me forever to pick polish. I wanted a cool green with some crazy tropical name. Then I realized I just wanna be hot neon pink!!! ^^^

^^So many colorful workout ensembles! Our excursions will be pretty active, with one long hike and possibly a fishing excursion. So I want to look semi-cute, but no I refuse to buy lululemon for a thousand smackaroos. I hit up Marshall's and old navy for all my workout goodies! Also, lots of maxi dresses^^

^^Bathing suits, and I always always bring my Hana blow dryer.  You Never know when you need a blowout! Also, some tennis that I am willing to toss when we are done.^^

^^^And here is the interesting part....4 different kind of bug sprays, rain panchos, sunscreen, cortisone in case someone gets a rash, immodium in case you know what...cliff bars, band aids, neosporin^^^

^^And a water proof case for the Nikon! No way Jose that a little rain is gonna keep me from snapping those monkeys and froggies!!^^

Sleepy time Tea, and I'm out!!
