Off to Florida with no luggage!

6 Apr

This weekend I am flying to Florida to see my 91 year old grandma. I found a nonstop, round trip ticket through Spirit airlines for $137! Unbelievable.

What’s the catch you ask? Well, I will not be checking any luggage and I will not bring a carry on.

Why no luggage you ask? Well, it was $28 to check a bag and $30 to bring a carry on.

How will I survive you ask? Well, I will bring a personal item. I am thinking my husbands computer backpack. It has several compartments that can hold all the essentials.

I am going for 5 nights. All I really need to bring is my bathing suit, flip flops, beach wrap, and 2 outfits ( I will be wearing one there). Oh, and a tooth brush. Everything else I can just get there!

This great deal could not have come at a better time! More post to follow on this much need trip!

Have you ever scored a killer deal on a flight or have you paid the extra for that carry on?

I came across these photos I took last summer and I wanted to share them with you. It made me smile and reminded me that there is life after a very snowy winter. This year in Michigan we have been slammed with snow. Not that I don’t mind it, but sometimes you just need  to be reminded that it WILL melt soon. =)

Every year I plant hundreds of sunflowers for my grandmother. My whole summer revolves around those silly flowers and how they are doing. Who ever is visiting her at the time I ask very nicely for them to please check on my flowers and give them a nice drink of water.  This past year I started the seedlings in a plastic bowl and let them germinate before I stuck them in the ground. I may have let them grow a little to long..

Oh Summer – I miss you!
