On Thursday morning, I awoke to this. But, that was okay because I was headed to California. My first time going to a different time zone!
I flew out of a local airport, but had to stop mid trip in Chicago. It was nice to be able to walk around an airport without the children in tow. I noticed so many things and window shopped. I ate a hoagie from a place called PotBelly- enough said. I was amazed at the different people. I opted for comfort and wore my black velour sweat outfit, while others wore the latest fashions all while toting their rolling suitcases behind them. I was in awe and while I vowed to wear something nicer on my return trip, I wore the same velour outfit. It's all about comfort, baby!
On the plane, I broke my sugar fast and had a cake pop from Starbucks- I would of never found the delightful treat had I not needed to buy a water for the plane.
The 2nd plane ride was much longer than the first. I had the chance to speak to a real sweet woman and this made the time go faster, but next time, I might take a direct flight. I was motion sick and jet-lagged for the night and the next day of my trip. California was experiencing a lot of rain and cold weather, but it was great to be there all the same!
When I went towards the baggage, my Dad was waiting for me with a sign that bore my maiden name as if he were a hired driver- he always makes me laugh!
Tomorrow, I will post some pictures for the reason I traveled to California- my brother's wedding!
