Packing for Flat Heather proved equally as challenging as packing for myself.  Better to be over prepared than under.  Right?

Clockwise from left:

1.  Comfy PJ’s with sleeper mask

2.  Everyday wear for shopping excursions

3.  Outback gear and hiking boots

4.  Fancy Dress for a night out (with matching gloves should it happen to by chilly)

5.  and per Nick’s request…Bear’s Gear.

At first the Bears Gear seemed a bit absurd considering Flat Heather was on her way to AUSTRALIA of all places…but go figure, she incurred a 6 hour lay over in Chicago.

Needless to say, I’m glad she was prepared.

More adventures from Flat Heather’s Australian vacation will be posted in the coming days…be sure to come back!

*Flat Heather’s couture wardrobe is truly one-of-a-kind.  All clothes were custom fitted, hand-cut,  and watercolored with care.

Well, mini-me, made-out-of-paper, naked.  You dirty minds you!  Just a little April Fool’s Day fun.

Now why on earth would one produce a paper version of themselves?  Because Bekah’s going to Australia, that’s why.  I’ve been slaving away at that wii fit, but I just don’t think I’ll be able to make the 50 pound weight limit.  So  “Flat-Heather” will go in my place…a concept not too far off from this guy.

Even a Flat Heather must travel in style…

She’s even packed relatively light…

Only 2 pairs of shoes for a week in Australia…I’ll bet she has Bekah beat by a mile!

Anyhoo…Flat Heather leaves Saturday for her grand adventure.  Bekah will so graciously document the experiences of mini-me and I’ll be posting her stories to this blog…so be sure to come back soon!  Oh and have a fabulous April Fool’s Day!

Nick and I are finally back in Savannah after spending some 10 days on the road.  It was great to end one of the best years of my life with a little down time.  I must say, I’m ready to hit the ground running for 2009…so many ideas floating around my brain, so many plans to execute, so many lists already in the works, and time just flies!  I’m so grateful to all of you who helped to make 2008 a blessed year for me.  It’s been a whirlwind, but I wouldn’t have it any other way!  Now in the spirit of New Years…(and this may be a mistake)…here’s a few  resolutions…

1.  Work towards finding a healthy balance between work and family…(I’m a total work-a-holic, but I get it honest)

2.  Cut back on the consumption of my dear friend Cherry-Coke…(your sugary sweetness will be missed)

3.  I’ve got two series of paintings in the works, and it would really be swell if one series turned into a gallery show…

4.  Eat less for the wedding dress…

I’m sure I’ll come up with another 15 in the coming days, but how often do we stick to those things anyway?  Well, off to the races!  Wishing you all a happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year!
