That time I won the Lottery.

In case you didn't know, 
I was visiting my family in Utah for the last two and a half weeks. 
We were supposed to hop on our flight home yesterday morning around 945 am.
I hate flying. fyi. 
We were sitting there waiting to board when the Delta representative announces
that our flight is overbooked and they need two people to go on the later flight. 
They mentioned some positives to taking this opportunity. 
I hurry over to the counter to find out what the perks were:
$800 flight credit on Delta, between the two of us
$60 meal credit for food in the airport
First class seats on the direct flight that night at 5 pm

I hurried and got the okay from Dave and we signed right up!
We left the gate on Cloud 9,
grabbed a jamba juice on Delta's dime
and spent the day with our families. 

This may not seem appealing to some people
but we felt like we won the lottery!
Plus, flying first class is a piece of cake...
I could get used to that. 

After a delayed flight, we made it safe and sound to our Apartment at 4 am. 
So yes, I woke up at noon today. 
More on our trip home to come...


  1. We have recently been travelling business class as hubby collects alot air miles with work & it really does make a difference, it makes flying so much nicer!
