Reporting on Hawaii

Many of you are my friends on facebook and saw the pictures but now I am officially going to blog about the trip. It was a wonderful trip that Craig planned for the 2 of us. We are so lucky to have family (Martia and Jerry) to watch the kids so Craig and I could have some much needed "us" time.

In the planning Craig did not consult me on the departure date, and of all the dates, he picked Superbowl Sunday! Of course, out of all the Superbowls, my Colts were going to be playing! Now looking back and watching replays....glad I didn't have to suffer that loss but at the time...I was suffering. Lucky for us, we befriended a stewardess who would periodically report scores to me!

I was also sad to be missing a birthday party of a dear friend. Just so she knew I was thinking of her, I posted a picture on facebook so she'd I really hated missing her party! I heard later, she actually saw the picture while she was at her party. Makes me smile to think in some small way I was there!

Here are some pictures from the flight. Craig had enough miles for us to fly first class. Having flown to Hawaii in coach and now first class.....first class is DEFINITELY worth it! Maybe you could find a deal on first class?

This particular plane's first class was premium! Lots of room, a footrest, personal tv (only movies and games, no Superbowl), large down blankets and real pillows, and nice headphones. My seat controls looked like the cockpit! It took me a while to figure it all out. That definitely helped make the flight length not seem so bad.

We were definitely spoiled. Continuous drinks, warm towels before eating, nice meals with dessert and snacks...and Superbowl updates!

Stay tuned for Day 2 of the trip.....
