Arizona Packing List: Christmas
This year we are traveling to Tucson to visit the in-laws for a week. Initially, I worried that my pregnancy garb (I will be 18/19 weeks during the trip) would interfere with my normal packing routine of taking just my Synapse and MCB. However, having fewer outfits that I can actually wear has made it much easier to pack than before because I have fewer options. I invested in 2 really nice maternity dresses that I wear frequently for work/fun/errands. I bought cheaper maternity pants and tops from Kohlís maternity line during a big on-line sale. I am happy it all fits (on me and in the bags)!

Just saw this--congratulations on your impending Interesting Event! And have a great trip--I love Tucson and Arizona in general. Wish I was there now instead of our mid-Atlantic deep freeze.

I have a question--I see you are wearing a dress on the plane. The last couple of times I've flown in a dress or skirt, I got a secondary search and they pretty much said it was because of the skirt. Sometimes I would rather wear a comfortable skirt than pants, especially if I'm going to a professional conference. Do you get singled out for extra security when you fly in a skirt?

Hi @MaggieScratch! Thank you:)

I don't usually get singled out for extra searches with a skirt or a dress because I have "Global Entry/TSA Pre-Check" clearance. I just whiz through the check points most of the time with my pre-check.

Hmm. Pre-Check becomes more attractive all the time. Thanks for the response!
