High in the Sky

by Meghann on April 29, 2010

This seems to be a familiar sight on my blog lately, doesn’t it?


In 2009 I flew 8 times! So far in 2010 I’ve flown 4 times and it’s only the 4th month of the year. Looks like breaking last year’s number isn’t going to be a challenge. Good thing I love to travel – especially when I’m traveling for VACATION and not work! 🙂

Aww… vacation. I can’t say it enough. I’m on vacation! I’m on vacation!

Ok, I promise I’ll stop now. 🙂

Derek and I had an early flight this morning and needed to be at the airport by 6:30am. Luckily Derek’s brother was willing to take us to the airport at the crack of dawn despite having worked until closing at The Cheesecake Factory last night. Derek’s brother also volunteered to puppy sit Maddie this weekend and has already informed me of his plans to strategically use Maddie as ‘girl bait’ at the local parks. Thanks Tyler! Try not to pick up too many girls with my sweet pups because trust me they will come in droves with her around. 🙂

Once past security Derek and I dove into breakfast.


I had packed some cereal


Fruit (that I shared with Derek)


and a packet of Barney Butter


One thing I do not like about the Barney Packets is how incredibly difficult it is to get the Barney Butter out of them. At home I cut them up with scissors, but at the airport Derek had to help me get every last drop I could out of them.



Breakfast may not have looked pretty, but it was tasty!


I begged Derek last night to pack his own breakfast for the airport, but he pushed it aside and told me he would buy something at the airport. He ended up purchasing an egg sammie from Quiznos and did not enjoy it at all. I think ‘I told you so’ may have came out of my mouth once or twice. 😉

We really scored on our first flight to Atlanta.


Not only were we able to sit together (AirTran – it’s not very nice to charge people to pick their seats), but we placed in the exit row too.


Hello extra legroom!


Derek slept.


And I indulged in a guilty pleasure. 😉


Unfortunately we weren’t as lucky for the second (much longer) flight. Derek is 6 rows behind me and the exit row is three rows ahead of me. Bummer.

At least I have wifi to entertain me!!


Just after take off #2 I had a Peppermint Stick Luna Bar.


I now have the pleasure of tweeting, blogging, and checking e-mail for the remainder of my 5 hour flight across the country. Derek and I already have plans for a great place to eat for lunch once we land, but we’re open for suggestions for dinner tonight.

If you’re a San Francisco local and would like to meet up Sunday night shoot me an e-mail at

I’ll see ya in San Francisco!
