Remember how I was JUST saying that I hadn’t seen my love in almost two months and how much I missed him? (See also: ugly-crying meltdowns.) Um, I think the universe heard me, because by miracle of miracles I’m going to New Jersey TONIGHT!!
Wait, what…? How?
Well, not too long ago I received an email from United Airlines, saying that I had unused miles that were about to expire. Thinking nothing of it, I filed the email away and went about my business. After all, I use Delta these days because their hub is Atlanta. The expiring miles were from my Jersey days, back when I flew Continental (now United) for my visits to the South.
Fast forward to two days ago and my guy tells me he might have Friday off of work… was there any chance flights were doable? I immediately started looking, trying not to get my hopes up too quickly.
Full price on Delta? $881.00, minimum. GAH, AIRLINE PRICE-GOUGING MUCH???
What if those old United miles are eligible? Surely not, with such short notice.
Log on to United.
Choose “Use award miles”.
Find flights leaving Thursday, returning Sunday??? (with 1 layover each and late nights, but WHO CARES?!).
Miles can be used for both flights. Whoa.
With fees, total cost: $85.00. WHAT.
This can’t be. Really?
Triple-check my iPhone calendar, gmail calendar, and my work outlook calendar to make sure I’m not booked for anything Thurs-Sun. Nope, clear. Seriously?
Text my man the screenshot of flight arrival/depart times. For good measure, sent to Nette too. Both reply with some version of, “DUH, crazy girl. BOOK IT NOW!”.
So I did.
You guys, I’ll be in his arms tonight. There are no words for the amount of happy.
So, I’m sure you understand if I don’t blog for a few days, but I’ll be around on Instagram and Twitter, oversharing my food pictures as usual. Until then, I’ll be floating on love through the rest of my day.
