Tell Me Something Good – Parental Travel
it’s friday the 13th – are you superstitious??? are you avoiding all black cats and stepping on cracks? i tend to view friday the 13th as an extra magical day where exciting things might happen so let’s hope that’s the case!
i am writing from kansas city, MO where it’s sunshiny, balmy and full of some of my favorite people so i’m happy. the only thing missing is my husband, he has been in kentucky all week and apparently really digging it (and that’s not just the bourbon talking). i am out here to visit family and my cousin’s high school graduation oh and for the BBQ. my sister is flying in tomorrow and then we can bump bellies – i am SO excited!
my tell me something good to share with you today involves traveling. yesterday i got to travel right next to my mama for the first time in over 8 years!!! of course we have been to the same places for christmases and girls’ weekends but we haven’t left from the same destination to be able to travel together in 8 years!
here’s what we found out on our flight:
- we have the same reading pace as we read from the same trashy magazine on the flight
- order cran-apple juice with lime – it tastes so much better
- regardless of age, peanut m&ms are the perfect travel snack
it was just a few years ago that my travel anxiety was still so bad that i couldn’t eat anything for the entire day i traveled. yesterday i consumed a massive egg sandwich with potatoes. that is also something so very good that i don’t take for granted.
also, if anyone has access to a whole lot of globes please let me know because i simply must decorate our nursery in this exact same way as the restaurant:
part of why it was so special to travel with my mom is because of how much i’ve changed. i was so not fun to travel with (and admittedly i still have my moments – just ask my husband when everything got all messy getting to hawaii) but generally i’m much better. sitting next to her on the plane reminded me of how far i have come in growing, changing and managing my anxiety. i have way more fun traveling with me so i hope others do too!
with that, let’s do some celebrating on friday the 13th! as i mentioned in my previous post, i got some goodies from Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort and Oahu Tourism while we were in hawaii so i want to share some of them with you!
there will be some edible goodies as well as a few fun things that will remind you of hawaii. i will be sharing some of the goodies from the above package but not everything because i needed the cookies and chocolate from it – for the baby – so thanks for understanding.
to be entered into this giveaway, please share with me something good in your life! this will close on monday 5/16.
i will eat the cost to ship these goodies internationally if that person is randomly selected so everyone is eligible to win!
