Vegas Trip: Flight 2

Screen shot 2013-10-06 at 8.48.29 PMOn flight 1 I learned just because you are dressed like a sharp business man, it doesn’t mean you have any common sense. Flight 2 also showed this to be true. The flight attendant said if the front bathroom was in use, there would be a red X.  Multiple people walked up to the occupied bathroom to say “I don’t see a red X”, but I guess they didn’t look because it was almost always occupied.

The pilot teased me on this flight as I got on the plane and ‘called me out’ because my bag matched my shirt.  Still keeping that note to self in my brain from the last post! I got situated and a husband and wife were next to me. I ended up dropping my pen (I brought a notebook to ‘old school’ blog throughout the trip because I didn’t bring my laptop) and it took me a good 5 minutes to pick the damn thing back up. Then I dropped it again! I can’t win.

The ride was much longer than I had anticipated but I tracked the flight on my Nook (that was free, WiFi was $8, no thanks!) Played a few games, read a book or two and tried to write a few blog posts (like this one).  We had a jet stream that meant we’d be getting in late (and I was still starving) and I wanted to nap but didn’t want to miss snack time!

After snacks I was able to nap and woke up to see the Stratosphere outside the plane window. We had arrived!  As we were departing a woman spilled her diet coke all over my pants – the only long pants I had brought for the trip.

I made my way to baggage claim and waited for Kim to meet me from her flight.  We got our shuttle tickets and 3 hours after landing made it to the hotel.  Midnight Vegas time, 3am my time… It was time to sleep!

Product Review: WEXY Snack Bags

WEXY bags are eco-friendly snack bags. They are biodegradable, BPA Free, Recyclable and reusable! They are made in the USA and feature four funky monsters that all kids love! Colorful and fun!

While I don’t have kids that I have to pack lunches for, I sometimes pack snacks for myself. I’m a big kid, so I thought that these WEXY Snack Bags were totally cool.  I also have a sponsored child in Africa.  I’ve been told to package things like they’re going to hit all the elements (rain, mud, etc) so I often pack little trinkets and stickers in snack bags before sending the packages off to try and keep things safe for Amodu while things are in transit.  Then, once he gets the items he will have a cool bag to keep everything in too!  I can not wait to send him off some goodies in these WEXY bags with FUNKY monsters!

They are the perfect size for lunch boxes or in my case, a 6×9 envelope (which is what I am limited to when sending gifts.) They are sturdy (I like to jam them full of stuff) and they are also easy to open and close so if your kid doesn’t finish all his/her snacks he/she can easily zip the bag back closed and bring them home or save them for later!

These bags would also be great for Halloween goodie bags for parties or for giving items out to trick or treaters! The monster are fun and not scary so they are great for kids of all ages.
