Do we really have to fly? Can't we just drive?

As we speak I am facing one of my biggest fears... did I mention I am horrible at flying? Instead of the hassle of flying, I wish I could just blink my eyes and be at my destination. I love to travel and have new experiences, but during my flights 'I white knuckle it'. Don't get me started about trying to sleep on planes! But what if I could I fly like this...


First I would wear an outfit like this one. Check out those boots!
Then I would put on my eye mask to sleep. Would you still take me seriously?



I would fly on Virgin America planes. Maybe it's because I'm in love with the red color and creativity of their airline. Or maybe it's because I can catch up on my T.V.




I would use all of these luggage tags on my one piece of luggage. So it was harder for me to lose it on the baggage carousel.

Although I don't like to fly, today is still a wonderful day because it's my Honey's birthday. So this is really the best day ever. Comment below and tell me if you like to fly? Do you miss getting meals on the planes? (Here's one of my favorite I'm leaving on a Jet Plane posts)

O.M.G- flying is the worst. I hate it, H.A.T.E!

Recently flew to Florida with my 18 month old. Her first time flying... talk about anxiety overload!

Safely landed, and was sooo ready for a nice cold corona!

Happy Travels!

I have to take ativan on the plane...especially when traveling with the baby. I love the eye mask though. Actually, I do miss the food...only because flying to Australia they had a seriously yummuy meal and unlimited drinks...they gave us free wine the whole flight!

I LOVE flying... but I think the only reason that I LOVE it so much is because most times I am either a) going somewhere warmer than where I am at b) going to see my sexy man friend.... aside from that... I try my best not to think about what's going down. Ativan, alcohol... you know... all those things do the trick ;)

Good luck!
And happy birthday to your man!

omg I'm terrified of flying ...since my anxiety began actually, so it's probably more of that. But I haven't gotten on a plane sine 911. Good Luck!!!!! ...and I can't sleep up in the air either. It makes me even more upset when I'm freaked out and the only one who's awake. lol.

Party Box Design: Love your comment sweetie and I think some coronas is the best way to get through! xoxo

Dollface: Great idea...thanx honey.

Juliana: Free wine is the perfect way to get through a flight with a baby. Hold on as I go and book a flight to Australia =)

I have tried five times to purchase airline tickets for my brood to fly to florida next month for a Disney trip.

I CAN NOT bring myself to hit the purchase button! I am SCARED out of my mind.

But driving is not an option because my baby hates the car so she screams even for short drives.

18 hours of her screaming, plus a teenager...plus the triplets...I would gouge my eyes out for sure.

GOOD LUCK!

...love Maegan: Thanx sweetie...yes I find myself staring at the other passengers in dreamland wondering, "How do they seem so peaceful. I'll let you know how it goes!"

I've never been on a plane. I too would like to travel some if it didn't involve a trip. I don't like long driver either.

I am SO afraid to fly. I hate it!! Xanax is my best friend for flying the not so friendly skies.

I love to fly because I like getting to the destination.. but since I moved to Japan 10 years ago, anything toward Europe or back the US is 18 hour flight...

but I do it a few times a year anyway.... I agree take ativan...my mother takes.. vallum

I love, love, LOVE flying! I love the hassle of going to the airport, I love walking through all the little shops in the airport, and I LOVE the flight itself. I started flying alone at age 5 and have loved it ever since.

I also LOVE the cake in that last picture! Good luck with your travels!

I love to fly!! I can see where some would get a little in-nerved by it though. This one woman in my organization has to drink (like a fish) before and during her plane rides...so she always shows up to the hotel wasted. It is funny, though...because she gets SO loud. We always know when she arrives!
