From Texas to Maine on a Plane

Sorry, I couldn't resist my cheesy title. We got back from our little getaway to Maine yesterday evening. I have just been itching to document our adventures! I will try to break up my posts into categories, instead of one insanely long yawn-y thing.

Thank you all for your travelling tips. All in all, A. vs. the airplane went very well. I packed her little Dora backpack with "surprises" for the trip up and then refreshed it for the return flight. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Polly Pocket creator. These strange little dolls with their stretchy clothes, microscopic shoes and accessories kept her busy for long segments of the flights. I am proud to report that we only lost a few shoes. I so don't care.

Here we are before the plane took off. She was excited and not scared at all, thank goodness!

We flew

for the first time. Now, we are not experienced travelers AT ALL, so our opinion probably doesn't amount to much, but we enjoyed their service--as far as no frills, discount airfare carriers go.

A. was most happy with her bag of Munchie Mix, her headset, and NICK on the little TV on the back of the chair in front of her.

I had to document actually being in New York, even if it was just the airport. I'm such a dork, when I saw JFK airport from the runway I immediately started quoting Seinfeld in my head. I was also the geeky tourist craning my neck, squinting my eyes into the smoggy distance and asking Scott, "Is that Manhattan? Is that the Empire State Building?" Someday I'll see the real deal.
Stay tuned for the Maine details... (ha ha ha...I just crack myself up! To pieces, I'm telling you!)


  1. Hi, Holly! This is Deanna. I have your name for the Witch Switch! I'm really excited! I'm friends with Wendi, Jamie and a few others doing the switch. (Our husbands went to dental school together.) Anyway, I wanted to tell you that your blog has been SOO inspiring to me! You have no idea! I love your running posts, and I'm set and determined to do better! I've been on the weight loss path for a few months now, but this gave me the litte boost I needed. I especially loved your post "I wasn't a runner, but now I am." I've adpoted this as my new mantra. :o) I actually talked about it on my blog (ronanddeanna.blogspot.com). Anyway, great to meet you! Thanks again for the great inspiration! :o)
