Very pleased with US Air today – our planes were brand spankin’ new and had WiFi the whole way! That sure helps to make the trip go faster, and reduces workload upon landing.
- We used all the battery in my netbook.
- Then all the battery in Larbs‘ Macbook.
- Then all the battery in my cell phone.
I also notice they now have 15 minute "check your email" plans for smartphones for $1.95. Love it when technology gets even more convenient.
When we arrived in Charlotte, it was snack time on the West Coast and dinner time on the East Coast.
We settled on frozen yogurts. Strawberry and White Chocolate Macadamia swirl. Topped with a little Hungry Bar crumbles.
It was not very good – the strawberry tasted like chemicals.
By the time our puddle jump to Raleigh was over and we were home, I felt pretty wiped out. Despite the fact that this time last night the event was just beginning, it feels like midnight here – I’m ready for bed! So frozen yogurt became dinner 🙂
Maynard and I are snuggling in the guest room. G’night!
Glad you made it home safe and that you enjoyed your time out here on the west coast. 🙂 Sleep well, you deserve it!
(Bad frozen yogurt is just wrong.)

I totally agree with you on the TCBY strawberry. Blech!

I was just looking at my flight info for my trip later this month. I’m already dreading the early morning flights. How was the new Nicholas Sparks book as flight reading?
Good – but I did more interneting than reading today!
Katie @ Talk Less, Say More says
I’d be lying if I said I’ve never had frozen yogurt for dinner…In fact, it’s probably happened more than I should admit. 😉
And Maynard is quite adorable!!
I am so sorry about the crummy TCBY experience. Unfortunately the flavor you chose is chock full of chemicals, I’m not sure why it was not listed as sugar-free/non-fat, because it is. I run my own TCBY in Canada and personally do not go near the White Chocolate Macadamia nut, it makes me so sick 🙁 It’s sugar-free/non-fat, loaded with not only aspartame which accounts for its chemical/medicinal taste, but also phenylalanine, which comes with a warning that can cause the laxative effect on the ingredients. I’m sorry you did not enjoy it and that the flavors were not advertised as being sweetened with chemical additives. Hope your next visit (if there ever is one) is better.
Yikes!! Hope some of the others are a bit more natural 🙂
Cat @Breakfast to Bed says
I feel like TCBY tastes like plastic bags.
🙂 Enjoy your day with your parents!
Gillian G. @ When Bread Is Broken says
that makes me sad, I used to love TCBY when I was little but they’ve all but disappeared up here. It doesn’t help that travel sucks the life out of you (me!), either. Yay for sleep!
Lynn @ the actor's diet says
I hate when froyo tastes like chemicals! My fave is dolewhip which you can get at Disney, Hawaii, and now LA! Tastes like pineapples whipped into heaven.
Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga says
Those 1.95 plans? Genius!! Have never heard of those but have wanted something like that many times in the past…good to know they exist.
Glad you had the USAir hookup today. Love it when airline travel runs smoothly 🙂
Christine @ Oatmeal in my Bowl says
After eating real food its so easy to pick up on the ‘fake’ food. haha. so to speak. When I do eat fast food, its easy for me to taste the loaded sugar in a hamburger bun. Just isn’t my fancy. Cook at home anyday!
Fro yo for dinner–> definitely a good idea!
Loving having fro yo for a meal – such a treat. Shame the one you had tasted artificial. My fave fro yo has to be pinkberry – all the flavors are just soo good!
Fran@ Broken Cookies Don't Count says
Back to the East Coast safely, good news! I hate the jet lag though.
Katie @ Peace Love and Oats says
Glad you had an easy trip back!

Glad you had a safe, smooth flight!! 😀
Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin says
I hate when food tastes like chemicals! I can’t eat non-fat flavoured yogurts without cringing now because all I can taste is the fake sweeteners. 😛
katie @KatieDid says
Free wifi?. awesome! My computer battery is so awful I couldn’t have even made to over the midwest before it died.
Hope @ With A Side Of Hope says
I’m glad that you made it home safely! It seemed like you had a wonderful weekend! 🙂
I agree with you on TCBY. I’m not a huge fan of their frozen yogurt. I think the only flavor that tastes good is peanut butter. The rest do taste like chemicals.
Susan H. @ the food allergy chronicles says
Love your photo shots especially of Maynard! The best frozen yogurt to me is the kind where the machine combines the frozen fruit and frozen yogurt together in perfect harmony! Yummy!
I haven’t had TCBY in years. Disappointing that it tasted like chemicals (and probably was loaded with them).
Travel is exhausting. I don’t blame you for eating fro-yo for dinner and going to bed! 🙂
Glad you’re home safe and sound!
Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife says
Wahoo-you’re back safe. That is good!
I mean this in the nicest way possible 🙂 – but I think you could use a break from technology!! 🙂 It is so refreshing to step away from computers, internet, phones and be yourself and do things…in real life you know. It’s so important to not be “attached” to something because you never know when it could be taken away from you.
In general, whether the attachment is the internet, work, food, tv shows, etc. everyone could benefit down “de-taching” and simplifying their lives.
Gina @ Running to the Kitchen says
I wish Delta would get that $1.95 for email check option! That would be super convenient for short flights!
Cait's Plate says
Sometimes a froyo dinner is just what the evening calls for 🙂 Glad you made it and are able to get some sleep!
~Christy @ wonderofallthings says
Hope you’re sleeping in this morning! 🙂
Andrea @FromSeedtoStomach says
TCBY = tasteless checmical-laden barely yogurt 😛
Ashley @ Coffee Cake and Cardio says
I really am loving the wifi on planes now. It has truly changed flying for me.
Hoping you got a good night’s sleep from your fun and eventful weekend!
I can’t do strawberry fro-yo! Its just YUCK!
