Cabin Trip Prep Lists!

Hey guys!

We are heading to the cabin on June 7th. I am so excited for this trip! The cabin is my happy place. It is honestly so beautiful there… I cannot explain how perfect the cabin really is! The pictures I take there are so amazing, but they don’t do it justice. You truly just have experience it to understand it.

As far as the pigs go, we were planning on bringing all of them with us. We usually bring them along. However, after thinking about it for a little while, I have decided to just bring Luna. My brother has offered to take care of Nala and Peanut while we are away. I would leave all of them, but I feel like Luna needs to come with us because she is currently on medication. She also needs to have lotion or aloe every few days. I would just feel better about it if she comes with, so I’m going to be bringing her.

Before we leave, I have a lot of things to get done. I’ve put together a few lists that I wanted to share with you guys!

Things to buy –

  • Sunscreen + aloe
  • Swimsuit

Typically, I am horrible about getting things done in advance. I always end up rushing to get everything done days before we leave. In the end, it just makes me super stressed. So, I have been trying to start getting ready at least a week before we head out.

I like to plan things out to help me stay on track and not get as stressed out. I make a list of things to do 2 weeks before, 1 week before, 2 days before, 1 day before, and things to do the day of.

  • Take guineas to vet for nail trims
  • Give Luna a bath
