It has been nice to have a chunk of my week at home. I got back from Vegas late on Monday, caught up on local appointments (doctor, dentist, etc.), had a couple of happy hours with friends, and then took a road trip down to Austin for a board meeting.
I love my travel time but sometimes I cherish a bit of time at home just to catch up on all the miscellany in my life. And my favorite part of the week was the debut of a new season of Thursday night television from producer Shonda Rhimes – Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, and How to Get Away With Murder. Sure, I can watch them on my DVR later, but sometimes it is fun to watch them live with everyone else!
Being home means that I stay caught up on my sales and online shopping, and one BIG sale ends TODAY at noon ET – the Tumi luggage sale on Gilt
AAdvantage eShopping miles are always there and I found a few finds while doing some Saturday night shopping from my sofa. And I love Etsy as well, especially when I find great unique travel related gifts.
I also love my monthly beauty boxes – the September Birchbox OR Ipsy battle has been decided.
I’m trying hard to catch up on my hotel reports although I’m staying faster than I’m writing. I outlined my policy for how I write hotel reviews…
… and reviewed the Hyatt Regency DFW Airport (where a suite is NOT a suite).
I also reviewed The Centurion Lounge in Las Vegas, even if I did experience a bit of shame along the way!
There was an update from the Myers family, who were determined to see #AACutOffYourNuts on a recent set of flights.
While we were reviewing all this travel, I included a retro Napa road trip report with up-to-date 2014 information.
I also shared six things you NEED to know before your next Uber ride.
And finally, don’t forget to check out some of the other great travel/miles writing going on with the rest of the Prior2Boarding gang. I’ve highlighted a few of my favorites from this week.
I started some of my autumn preparations around the homestead – hopefully I’ll get more done this week.
Who knows what the next week will bring? Another Stitch Fix box, for one thing. Some hotels. And no doubt some twists I can’t predict just yet, so keep reading…
… and make it a great week!
