Last Saturday, Mr. Jackson called me from work and asked, "Do you want to get out of town for the rest of the weekend?" As soon as he was done for the day we loaded up our little family and set out for Orlando. Although is was 99 degrees (OMG, what?!), we had a blast exploring, window shopping at a couple of superior malls (the mall in our hometown is seriously limited!) and taking Lorelai to downtown Disney. 

The road-trip is pretty short (2 hours on a day with no traffic) so excessive packing is useless but I always need a couple of things to keep me occupied while my mister is driving. He is, of course, the designated family chauffeur! Along with the usual overnight culprits (clothes, pajamas, beauty products...) I manage to squeeze in some reading material, sunnies, my phone loaded with entertaining apps and a blank notepad just in case inspiration strikes on the highway.
