You may have noticed I was traveling this past weekend. As a food blogger, one of my favorite things to do is meet up with other foodies. I had the opportunity to go to Miami for the BlogHer Food conference (thanks to Candiquik and Crunch Pak)!!
If you’ve followed me for any period of time, you would know that I have the worst luck traveling. From being stranded in Dallas last year at BlogHer food to having a cancelled flight to Miami in February for the South Bean Food and Wine Festival. If I flight is going to be cancelled, chances are I’m involved! Before I get to the recipe, I’m going to tease you with photos while I tell my story!!
My flight down to Miami was pretty uneventful. However, within minutes of landing in Miami, a terrible storm rolled in, causing the airport to close and dozens (hundreds??) of flights to be diverted and delayed. I rejoiced at my good fortune. I was so thankful to not be one of those bloggers stranded this time! “How lucky am I”, I thought to myself!
I had an amazing weekend, filled with good food and of course, lots of friends and networking! I even planned my trip to have a little downtime on Sunday and taking a later flight home! It gave me plenty of time to sleep in and enjoy some delicious food and chatting time with friends!
All my good fortune changed once arriving to the airport to head home. I should have known this was coming! My flight was delayed from Miami-Atlanta, which would have caused me to miss my connection to Cincinnati. Crap.
My choices at this point in talking with the desk were to stay in Miami and catch all my flights the following day, or fly to Atlanta and hope my connecting flight was delayed as well, otherwise spending the night in Atlanta. I was going to choose option B, but things got worse.
While waiting to decide what to do, Amanda from the blog, Kevin and Amanda was on my flight, dealing with the same issues. I’m pretty sure I jinxed her, as she was in the delayed group last year to BlogHer Food. I’m so sorry Amanda!!
Needless to say, I got on the phone with Delta and was given a new option. Fly to Chicago then get a connecting flight to Dayton, Ohio (which is about the same distance as Cincinnati for me)! Yeah!!!
No. Of course it wouldn’t be that easy, once arriving in Chicago, my Dayton flight was cancelled (of course it was!!). So I spent the night in Chicago at a fancy hotel, enjoyed some complimentary meal tickets and flew first class home in the morning.
Given my track record with HORRIBLE flights, I’ll be sharing some tips for you as a traveler. Tips on what to bring, what not to bring, and how to deal with change! So stay tuned for part 2 in “Adventures with Aimee.” Coming to a blog near you on Thursday!
IN THE MEANTIME, why don’t we all just enjoy some frosted sugar cookie bars!?! I’ve been teasing you with photos this whole post! I took my favorite sugar cookie recipe, made some delicious, easy bars (cause who has time to make individual cookies every week??) and frosted them with a creamy, BLUE, buttercream frosting.
Of course there were sprinkles involved too!
