Mailbox Monday

I won a trip to Montana back in late fall and I'm so excited it's actually this weekend! This week, not so much in my mailbox as actually sitting on my porch was a very large box. I knew that I was supposed to be expecting tickets and some paperwork in the mail but I figured on a large envelope so I wasn't sure what the box was.
2 large suitcase/bags and Lucky's favorite sock in the background. These bags are awesome, they have hard plastic on the bottom with wheels and a pull-out handle. They are literally big enough that you could sit on this thing and use it as a sled. There are large pockets on the sides that will be a perfect fit for shoes or boots. Then, I had a knock on the door this time it was FedEx with another box. This box I had to sign for because it had our plane tickets and paperwork.
This box, though much smaller, was even more exciting! The smaller box contained our plane tickets to and from the lodge, our paperwork and activities line up, 2 hats to wear on the way, name tags for our luggage and prepaid credit cards to cover the luggage check fee. I'm so excited but I'm also pretty nervous. I hate leaving the dogs but I know they will be with my grandma, she always takes great care of them and they love it there.

I really need to get this house to spotless status, there's nothing better than coming home to a perfectly clean house when you're away for a few days. I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend!
