'making a list, checking it twice!'

I am so happy to have cable again, and tonight was the season premiere of two shows I love!  One thanks to Jamie, (Grey's Anatomy) and the other a guilty pleasure (Jersey Shore).  I was out tonight and missed them both,  but lucky for me, there is a rerun of tonight's JS at 1am.  Looks like I will be killing time blogging!

Okay, for anyone who knows me, they know I live for my lists.  They provide comfort to me, even though I hardly follow them!  Don't get me wrong, I use it as a base, but not to a tee. With that said, this entry is dedicated to the list I have been provided with by Americorps as well as my list of things I need/need to do before I leave.

Let's start with what I will be provided with by NCCC:

  • pair of black BDU pants
  • 2 pair of tan BDU pants
  • 2 pair of khaki shorts
  • long sleeve polo
  • short sleeve polo
  • black fleece vest
  • 2 short sleeve gray t-shirts with emblem
  • 2 long sleeved gray t-shirts with emblem
  • hoodie
  • winter parka
  • steel toed work boots (sexy, I know)
  • black belt
  • coveralls (oh my...)
  • rain suit
  • black wool scull cap
  • tan fisherman's cap
  • baseball cap
  • cold weather coat
  • green short sleeve performance tee
  • red backpack
These items are what I will be wearing 90% of the time.  Not my first pick, but I will defiantly be channeling my dad and grandpa! Maybe I will borrow one of his flannel shirts and be just like him!
my dad and my grandpa! you can't see the steel toed boots, but believe me they are there!

And to think all this needs to fit in one carry on and one check on bag! Haha.  I read on an alums blog to use the air tight space saver bags.  Already got them, just hope they work! Needless to say, once my bills are paid, I will be using any remaining money to finish getting what I need! And hopefully a fantastic Sam's run sponsored by my dad, but he does't know that yet!

no clue who these people are, but you get an idea of what my sexy uniform will look like...
