California…Here I Am December 20, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jen @ 3:34 am

After quite the traveling experience of canceled flights (because of the impending snow), hours on the phone with Continental trying to find another way of getting to California, leaving for the airport at 345am (without going to sleep before heading to the airport), riding on “mini-me” plane (which scared the heck out of me)…


…connecting flights in Atlanta (have you seen how HUGE that airport is??), a completely full plane where I got stuck with a middle seat (when all I wanted to do sleep)…


…to finally reaching my destination at the John Wayne airport in Orange County, California!!


…and finally meeting my friend Heather (of after 2 years of being friends!


I had my very first IN & OUT burger (yum!)…



…and visited Heather’s neighbor’s amazingly decorated house for Christmas…complete with music and light shows!


Tomorrow we will be heading to LA so that should be a great first time experience for me.  I’m so looking forward to it!!
