If the sun refused to shine, I would still be loving you

The time has finally come Chris and I are off to the UK, we fly out on Sunday!  I traded in a lot of dollars for a few pounds :) I gotta ask though what's with the different sizes bills, the 50 is bigger than the rest, doesn't that mess with your wallets or do you all have BIG wallets over there?  These are the things that keep me up at night.  BTW the Queen looks pretty good too, must be nice to be ageless on a bill :)
I have packed 15 pairs of socks, 6 pairs of leggings and 2 pair of tights.
  
 7 dresses, 2 skirts, 2 shorts, 2 pairs of pants, 1 sweater, and 2 jackets:)  I wish I could pack Peetee
Eh, no I don't Mama wants to play, but I will miss him dearly because I'm a crazy dog lady.
 My pink John Fluevogs will be coming though.
 and lots of bright jewelry


 Vix sent me this book to read and I am waiting until we get to the airport to crack it open.
Look out UK here I come in all my rainbow brightness!  I will miss you while I'm gone but I promise to share our adventures with you when I get back.  Take care everyone!

Yeah, we Brits all have enormous wallets for all our cash. Ha! Don't think I have ever had a 50 quid note!
Anything you haven't packed, Vix will find for you, never fear. It's so exciting!
You look gorgeous and colourful and wonderful, and I'm going to get to squeeze you for real soon, hurrah! xxxxx

Love you madly, wish I could sneak into your colourful suitcase!Say hello to Queenie for me!

Have a wonderful trip!

Also, while you're over there, can you find out what happens when they get a new queen or king. Does the old money get traded in?

Annie said...

I am gutted to be missing you :( But you will have a total blast. Leave space in your suitcase for some Walsall bargains, but just watch out for stowaway pensioners wanting to go home with you!

Dolly Cool Clare said...

Have a safe trip and an amazing time visiting our little country! I'm sure Vix will show a right good knees up ;)
You know, I'm surprised they gave you a £50 - we don't really use them much here - most shops/businesses don't like taking them! Stupid I know, in the US its quite common to see people shopping with $100 bills!

Kathi said...

The trip is finally here! I hope you both have a fabulous time!

Little Scribbler: sh*t I wear, think, eat, drink said...

I ain't got a big wallet cause I don't ever have a £50 note! Will look out for email and send you Edinburgh tips. It's a great place. Amazing for a walk around, some decent free stuff to do, some good shopping and pottering to be had and whatnot x

Nerd Burger said...

The UK is so lucky to have you visit. Have a great time. I can't wait to see the photos. I love the Lemon dress and pink cowboy boots. I hope the UK is ready for you.

OP SHOP MAMA said...

You're gonna love it!

I always thought it must be hard in US with all the bills being the same colour!

Hope you'e left space in your bags for stuff you're bound to acquire!!

Trees said...

Have the BEST time ever!! You'll have a blast! I always have trouble knowing what to pack and what to leave behind - gah! I LOVE LOVE LOVE your necklace - so much cute, I almost DIED!!

Lynn Dylan said...

Have fun taking your rainbow brightness to the UK! I know they will be made all the happier for your sunshiny personality and beautiful dresses! Love the comment about the ageless queen on the bills. :D

Terri said...

Oh, have fun and look out UK, here she comes. The necklace is just darling.

Heather said...

WOOO HOOOO!! Bon Voyage and Safe Travels!!!! ...You look so cute in yellow I don't think you have worn yellow like that before have you? It is a really good color on you looks adorable with your hair. Have fun on your trip!! Love Heather

Misfits Vintage said...

YAY! It's time! SO SUPER DUPER EXCITED FOR YOU!!!

You look even happier, sunnier, brighter and more beautiful than ever, Krista - the dress is GORGEOUS and your headpiece is AMAZING!

The notes are different sizes (like they are here) so blind people know what they've got!

Can't wait to see some pics - and maybe even have a skype!

Love, Sarah xxx

Melanie said...

I really hope you have an entirely wonderful time in Blighty!

Miss Magpie said...

I can't remember the last time I saw £50 we don't really use them but if you think the notes are strange wait until you get to the coins!

Bella Morte said...

Hahaha! £50 notes aren't usually given out by banks unless you're needing BIG money! Don't worry though, shops still accept them, just don't expect a corner shop to change you a £50 for a 49p pack of gum! HAAHAHA!

I really hope you have a lovely time over here with Vix - I just know you'll be going home with lots of good memories. I will be looking out for all your updates and pictures! Have fun!!!! xxx

Brilliant in yello and pink ready to leave for England, ahhhhhhhhhhhh
The notes are so much easier than the dollars. To me, they were very confusing: all green and the same size, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
HAVE A LOVELY TIME and ENJOYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY
