All Packed and Ready to Go

Hi Everyone!

First, let me apologize to all of you (well mostly just Natasha) for the appearance of my blog. I know it's not pretty and doesn't have a photo collage, but I just ran out of time. So forgive me!

As you know, I am heading across the big pond to CHINA on Wednesday! I can't believe the trip I have been talking about and planning for since last August is finally here. I decided to try and blog everyday while I am in China so that my friends and family at home could keep up with what I am doing...and be a little jealous :)

I am traveling with a group from Lipscomb University. I am participating in Lipscomb's MBA program and this trip counts as a class! We had four prep sessions where we learned about the companies we will visit, "learned" some Mandarin and got to know the people we will be spending 17 days with in China.

If you are interested, here is the link to our itinerary ( ) As you can see, we will be traveling to Hong Kong, Beijing, Xi'an, and Shanghai and doing everything we can squeeze into 17 days.

I, for once, am packed EARLY! I was a little freaked out by the 1 bag, 44 lb. limit so I had to plan ahead. I actually tried to pack light to plan for the many things I will be buying...including your pearls ladies! I think I did a pretty good job-with a little help from Mom.

It might not be pretty since this is my first time blogging and I won't have a lot of time while I am there, but I am going to give it a shot. So check back over the next three weeks and follow along on my trip to CHINA!


  1. don't worry, your blog is fine!! i am excited to read all about your trip when you're gone... i'll miss you! OXOX

  2. We love your blog...have an awesome time and be safe. Big Daddy said to please bring him back some fried rice as this is his favorite! We love you and will look forward to reading about your trip!
