Thanksgiving Guests Ride

In case you need to pick up your family or friends, but are too busy with the food preparation you might want to have them book a LYFT car service. They are usually cheaper than UBER when it comes to airport fares, other than that, the driver who might be your UBER driver most likely also works for LYFT (UBER doesn’t do airport pick ups anymore in the NYC area, they do drop offs). That means it will be the same friendly person no matter which app you end up using.

GET LYFT for the most affordable ride in town. Download the app now for up to $50 in free ride credit! Terms apply. use my code : MARLEN830172  The credit can also be applied to any other none Thanksgiving trip as long as its the first time you are using LYFT.

Lets focus on that yummy turkey cooking and have the driver do the rest!

Happy Thanksgiving!

First flight with 3 month old baby

We fly a lot so I will be reporting back on all the different stages and what to remember to bring and think of each time. The first time little one got to be on a big plane was when she was 3 month old.

So the plan was to fly together with daddy, but you know what happens to plans sometimes. Baby and me ended up flying alone over the big pond and this is a mother talking that is used to flying but not with an infant. The reason I am pointing this out is because for somebody who is not used to flying a lot,  it might all be a little more scary and stressful. Before getting even close to the airport, I researched all the advise I could find online.

Every airline is different and there is a difference between international flights and domestic flights. This was an international flight and baby’s first flight. Here is what you should keep in mind:

Romantic getaway Middleton Place

Only by chance did we find this pretty place and too be honest I first wasn’t too sure what to expect. Thanks to Hotel Tonight we found this great Inn and we loved it. I could have stayed there for at least 2 more nights and enjoyed the nature and beauty. Its just perfect for everyone who needs to escape the hassle dazzle of the city. We will definitely go again and if  I was a writer I would hide their and finish writing a book :). This place is also great for me and you time and a message to all the men out there this might be a great place to propose to your special lady.
