Florida!

28 May

My Florida trip was oh so fun…. once I finally got to Florida.  Last Wednesday morning was on of the worst in my entire life I think.  I have debated on whether or not to blog about this, but I have decided that I will, as a public service announcement to everyone.  Here is the awful dreadful tale…

Airplane

 I woke up early that morning and my parents dropped me off at the airport so I could catch my 7:10 flight (It was a little before 6:00 when they dropped me off).  I decided I would use one of the fancy kiosks to check in for my flight.  I entered my information and it said “please see person at desk.”Well, that’s stupid” I thought, why have these kiosks when they don’t work.  So, I waited in line and walked up to the teller.  She asked me what time my flight was and I replied it was at 7:10 to Dallas.  She asked if I had my itinerary because she didn’t have a 7:10 flight. What?!?  She had to, I mean I had a ticket for it right?  She looked at my itinerary and pointed out that I was supposed to be at the Tulsa airport not the Oklahoma City airport!  I could not believe I made such a stupid mistake.  There was no way we could make it to Tulsa for my flight.  So I asked the lady how much it would be to fly out from OKC.  After talking to a few people, she came up with the price of $590!  So much for my cheap $238 ticket…  After a few calls to John, he agreed that we should just pay the money and not look back. During these phone calls I felt completely nauseous, I had to sit on the floor at the check-in gate because I was about to pass out… twice!  This is why it’s not a good idea for me to travel by myself!  This was my first attempt at it, and I compeltely botched it up!!  But I ended up making it to Tampa, just a few hours after I was supossed to originally…

My trip was so much fun!  We didn’t really do a whole lot, just kind of relaxed, which is the best kind of vacation I think.

We went to the beach a few days, and I got burnt to a crisp!

We went to dinner at this neat little restaurant on the beach for Christa’s birthday.

Christa’s church had a Western themed murder mystery party one night that we went to.

And we saw an odd “piece of art?” in Sarasota.  Does anyone know what this is or why it’s there?  So strange to see, lol.

I think that’s enought pictures and rambling for this post. 🙂  All in all, it was the perfect vacation to see on of my best friends.  If you’ve done something stupid like I did, let me know in a comment so I don’t feel so dumb. 🙂

    You poor thing. Glad to hear you had a great vaca though 🙂
    I did something similar when J and I flew to NY. I figured out at the airport that I booked us to ISP not LGA oops. A train ride later everything was cool but we basically got on a plane with no clue how to get to our hotel.

    So glad you had a good trip! We all have our stupid moments… I try to block them out. At least you still made it down there. 🙂

    Sorry to hear this. At least you had a good trip. We missed a flight one time because we thought it was later than it actually was!

    OMG I would have freaked! I am really bad with airports. I try to get non-stop flights so I don’t have connecting flights b/c I am notorious for missing them but thankfully it all worked out for you and you had a relaxing vacay with a friend. Definitely the best kind. 🙂

    Aw, I would have freaked out too Nina!!! I was so scared to fly to Chicago by myself that I made T practice with me before we went – I made him pretend to be the person behind the desk and roleplay with me on any possible problems that might come up. LOL Don’t feel bad. : )

    Looks like you had an awesome time!!! Love the pedi! : )

    Glad you had fun. Pa said tell you there is a place in West Texas where they bury Cadillacs half in the ground. Florida cannot top Texas….I would like a print of You and Christa showing off four pretty blue eyes. And you were surely the two cutest “cuties” at the church party!!!
