Good Morning!

Good morning, all of you beautiful folks! I've had entire too little sleep and one too many shots of espresso in my coffee this morning. 'Why?' you might ask? Well, simply because my sister and I are going on a road trip today!
She just graduated high school & is getting ready to start her first year of college (man, that makes me feel old.) and so things are about to get hectic around here. 
But in order to celebrate, my parents and I decided to give Trintge (my sister) a road trip. Like a real one. (And I say that because I'm pretty sure besides some overnight ones as a small child, I don't think we've ever been on a road trip. Yes, we've driven to a destination, but never a road trip.
And the best part? She has no idea where we are going! :D I've made us both little road trip books that include road-trip inspiration, a packing list, the weather forecast for each place, and other little helpful bits. & Of course, for each new place, I've made "hints" for her to try and guess where we are going next.
Overall, I'm an awesome sister. ;)

I left them pretty blank (with a zillion blank pages too) so we can decorate & add our own stuff. Mainly because our styles are quite a bit different. 

A little pocket for stuff & a REALLY old photo of us. I think we're like 6 & 7 here. 

This week's weather for all the different places we're going. Some days, the morning is in one city & the evening in another. 

Heh, yes, I made road trip rules. 

Hint #1 & my book already has a few photos in it. 

Me & my family being silly at my sister's graduation party. 

But anyway, if you're interested in  how our trip is going, I'll try and post on here every day this week, but you can always check out my twitter & my instagram for more updates.
