We've Arrived

Today we've officially arrived.
In I think, every way.
Kevin and I chose to fly out of Denver versus the Colorado Springs airport. Usually the savings doesn't warrant the trip to Denver but in this case it saved us $130 PER TICKET! Which you can bet your sweet ass warranted the trip to Denver. It was also nice to not have to switch planes. Only get on and off once! Thank the lord.
I was slightly nervous when we arrived later than planned to the airport. I should have listened to Kevin when he said that everything would be fine, instead of becoming just more and more nervous and anxious about the time. When he would say, "Calm down. We'll make it. Don't worry." I'd roll my eyes and count the open check-in kiosks and wonder pissily why the folks at the front of the line wouldn't occupy them.
Then I thought to myself, "Why on earth is the broad over there sporting 6" stilettos to fly?"
Just defied all sense of logic that I have. You see I'm one who dresses down to fly.
Might as well make as much effort to be comfortable as possible!

Speaking of comfort. Frontier is now my new favorite airline.
"Why?" you ask.
Well, because the lack of fees for checked bags extended to active duty military and the free DirecTV on the flight make up for the fact that we didn't (initially) have seats together on the plane and the rude BROAD at counter.
Usually airlines wave the fees for military only while on orders. Well not Frontier!
They allowed us to check-in two bags without any fees.

Once we were in the air and the beverage service was being served the nice flight attendant nicely asks Kevin if he was active duty, to which he replies yes. She then swipes her magic card and activates the DirecTV for both me and my hubby!
How sweet! That was awesome, I flipped between HGTV and TBS! Really made my experience a 1000 times more enjoyable.

Anywho, I'm off to spend time with the family and take my bra off contacts out.
If I'm not back before then, I hope you all have great 4th of July's!
Be safe.

We just flew Frontier Airlines from SeaTac, to Colorado Springs last week. It was a pain paying $20.00 per bag.

That is freaking fantastic!

Alicia- I was checking the bag policy before we left and printed the portion that stated active military is not charged for checked bags, just in case they gave me any crap about it. But thankfully they didn't.

Too bad I always sport the 6" stilettos myself!!! LOL. That is the only way to fly. You never know who you will meet in an airport. ;)

Amanda- you're crazy.... life is too damn short to worry about all of that.

As always we'll disagree. ;)
