Three Weeks

Hey everyone!  I am headed to China in three weeks to get my three year old daughter.  For those of you who don't know me very well, here are a few facts about myself.  I love travel!  I am very low maintenance and am not concerned at all about my hair or clothes.  I am very flexible about what I eat and don't really follow any type of schedule.  Okay who am I kidding?  None of those things are true.  I have no desire to travel and am VERY high maintenance in about every category known to man especially my clothes, hair, exercise and food so this trip is going to be a challenge for me but hopefully entertaining for you.

My first challenge is packing.  My plan is to bring one carry on bag for my 15 day trip!  Don't think I can do it?  I am high maintenance but am also a minimalist so I can totally do this, right?  Oh, I also have to pack some things for my three year old daughter.  Still totally going to do this!  I found a great packing website at and am following some tips from that. 

Here is a picture of my daughter reading a photo book that we sent her with pictures of us.

By the way, the city where my daughter is from is know for their specialty dish of noodles and horsemeat, hence the name of this blog.  Something tells me that is not the only meal I will be skipping.


  1. cliff bars, cashews, bananas-learn it, live it, love it.

  2. You can take your own snacks at least. lol

    Hello, I'm Lesa and part of GW. Our son was three years old when we received him. If you have any questions along the trip feel free to write and ask me. I'll try to help the best I can. It helps to talk to those who have done it before.

  3. You are too funny! I love the blog. I cannot wait to read about your travel. Best of luck and your daughter is BEAUTIFUL!
