Skymall Birthday Wishlist

I love to shop, but not in the traditional “Let’s go to the mall and have a girly shopping spree heyday” kind of shopping. As soon as I was old enough to help my mom clip coupons, I gained mad discount bargain shopping skills. I am true to my brand loyalties, despite buying most of […]

Apology to those who think I hate Embry Riddle

Just to clarify: I meant no disrespect for Embry Riddle in my previous post regarding “The Bachelor – On The Wings of Love.” Personally, the only exposure I’ve had to ERAU is listening to the cockpit experiences of my husband and his pilot friends.

Tetris Packing Skills

I just wanted to show off my suitcase – All those years of Tetris pay off in moments like this. This is a 20 inch carry-on, the biggest I can bring on board with me without checking luggage. I’m impressed with how much I was able to fit in this time: two sweaters, two pairs […]

Birdstrikes!

I was just reading about a birdstrike on a Ryanair flight in Rome today. Last November, on Taylor’s first trip off O.E., he had his first birdstrike. I blogged about it last year here, but its one of the aviation experiences that Taylor loves to retell. Of all my blog entries that get searched on […]
