Travels


Since I'm sitting a a mostly deserted airport {otherwise known as DFW} at 0600, I thought I would take this time to write! I really should have done this earlier while I was chillin' in the {VERY classy} San Francisco airport, but I watched a Harry Potter movie on my laptop instead. Yeah, that's how I roll. :P

Anywho, this trip has definitely been interesting so far. I got a window seat for my last 2 flights {still have one to go} and of course, I was crammed with 2 other people. I would never have the luck for there to be an empty seat. *sigh* I thought flight #1 was going to be fine... Until they served us drinks. The 50ish year old man sitting next to me {because his super skinny wife didn't want to be in the middle...grrrrrrrr!} apparently thinks it's ok to SLURP a drink. Not only did he slurp his Bloody Mary out of a can, he also swirled it. So, long after I was finished eating he was still slurping. I was trying my hardest to sleep - hoping I would be able to think about it - but I could hear it even over the music blasting out of my earphones. Aaaah! I won't even tell you about my bathroom experience. AA apparently has the world's tiniest bathrooms... Pair that with turbulence... Yeah, it was good times. Finally, I was able to pass out for a while.

Once we landed in San Francisco, I was relieved. That is until I ended up paying $9 for a SALAD because I wanted something little to eat. Grrr. Then I sat down in their lounge chairs {seriously, they could have popped right out of a fancy club} and watched a movie and ate my pretzel M&Ms. :-) Classy, right?

I felt a tad out of place because there were SO many business men and women all dressed up, carrying briefcases and laptop bags. Not to mention the little restaurant/bar next to my gate where other "fabulous" people were relaxing pre-flight. Anyway, me? I'm wearing gaucho pants (think capri cut yoga pants that flare at the bottom instead of hug the calves), a tshirt, flip flops and a jacket. Yup. PLUS, our power went out AGAIN this morning (er, yesterday...I guess) so I had to let my hair dry by itself. Tell me that doesn't look HOT. *sigh*

I guess the good news is that I made it to the mainland. I thought I was going to cry when I left Jasper though! Lord help me when we have kids... Haha!!

Overall, I'm just really ready to BE SOMEWHERE. Not in an airport and not in a plane. Just somewhere. I'm seriously ready for some Chick Fil A! You better believe that's my first stop when I get "home." :-) Speaking of home, I saw this when I went to the bathroom here at DFW earlier.




Nothing says "Welcome Home" quite like that!!!

Hope y'all have a great day!! Don't worry, I'll be keeping you updated on all the goings-on while I'm visiting the mainland. It's sure to be interesting!

It's always terrible leaving the Pup behind. On the bright side, once you have kids you tend to bring them with you, but the one time I went on a trip sans dog and baby I didn't know what to do with myself lol

Now I want Chick-fil-a! Maybe tomorrow since we aren't leaving the house today.

Oh... Chick-fil-a... *sigh* They would make such a killing here in HI, I wonder if it's too big of a start-up cost for them to come out here?

Hope the rest of your trip is more relaxing!
