From Arctic To Tropics

December 26, 2011

Hi from Florida!

IMG_9131

Our flight was FREEZING cold, but we each got a little sleep and lucked out with an empty middle seat between us.

I sipped on some OJ during the flight which tided me over to 9am breakfast in Orlando.

SB&J, clem, cappuccino

Our next flight leaves in an hour and when we arrive I hope it’s hot outside!

Glad that Leg 1 of the trip is done…and that the next leg brings you to paradise!

And I’m with you….why are flights SO COLD? I mean could they turn on the heat just a little…anything short of icicles is appreciated :)

Mmm that SB&J sandwich looks amazing.Like a few others mentioned above, I’d love to know what kind of jam you used. Also, I love all the scribbles on your Starbucks cup haha, it looks like mine does!

If you’re heading further south, I’m sure it will be plenty warm since it’s been so warm all month in FL. I could use a little break from warm weather, but the beach was beautiful (and crowded) yesterday, so I can’t complain too much about sunny FLorida :) Have a great vacay!

Sounds like you have a fun adventure planned! I’m glad you two are taking some time to get away!

Gah SOOOO jealous!! I could definitely go for a warm getaway right about now! Enjoy yourself!!

You found coffee! Perfect with your SB&J sandwich and clementine. So smart to bring along your own snacks and splurge on the coffee.

24 Roxanne December 26, 2011 at 3:04 pm

Some airports don’t allow food brought in from home, they actually throw it out!
I don’t agree with this because not everyone can eat crap (oh did I actually say “crap”?) that the airports offer!
There’s nothing there for me….. except black coffee.

25 Shannon @ My Place In The Race December 26, 2011 at 2:59 pm

Almost there! Coffee always helps too :D

Oh man, 80 degree weather sounds so wonderful right now. Not this 40 degree rain and no sun for the past 7 days kind of crap that we’ve been experiencing. Oh well, that’s Oregon for ya. Hope you have a great trip! Remember to wear your sunscreen :)

29 Jenn December 26, 2011 at 3:43 pm

do you get clementines in your stocking? my mom always packs them in every year :P levi loves them now too.

30 Jennifer December 26, 2011 at 3:53 pm

It should be in the low 80′s down there right now. I can’t wait to hear exactly where you are going. You guys both really deserve this vacation. :)

My parents are headed to Florida on Saturday! I hear it’s nice and warm :)

32 Fran@ Broken Cookies Don't Count December 26, 2011 at 4:41 pm

Part way there is good! Taking your own food is the best idea every. Airport food is way too expensive and not usually good.

Reply

33 Lauren @ Oatmeal after Spinning December 26, 2011 at 4:52 pm

I would bet that if you packed that sandwich from home, the jam was “according to Daniel.” :)
Having that middle seat empty is the BEST! It rarely happens to me and Greg, but when it does, it makes all the difference!
Safe travels!!

Enjoy your well deserved vacation!

35 Erin December 26, 2011 at 5:50 pm

I’m wondering why you ordered sugar free syrup in your coffee. You are so focused on real, whole foods, so what’s your reasoning for choosing artificial sweetener?

Reply

36 KathEats December 26, 2011 at 6:08 pm

I have it about twice a year – usually at Starbucks. Got one pump of peppermint but it was actually really gross. I just can’t do sweet coffee anymore.

37 Hannah @ eat, drink, and save money December 26, 2011 at 6:17 pm

Should be warm! We live about an hour and a half south and we have had a crazy warm Christmas. Have fun!

Looking forward to vacationing vicariously through your posts! Enjoy!!

I MUST be low on caffeine for the day because all I want is to dive into that coffee! YUM!

40 Kathy S December 28, 2011 at 9:30 pm

Umm… did you mean “arctic” or is your title a play on words that I’m missing?

Reply

41 KathEats December 28, 2011 at 10:53 pm

Umm….ultimate typo of the year!? Going to change it!

Please send some sunshine up north, Kath — must have some Vitamin D :)
