I ♥ Miami

September’s first trip – Back to Miami with my babe!!! I invited my daughter on a weekend get-away to Miami, THE CATCH???  You can only bring a book bag, no suitcase! Why?  Cause I found a $77 roundtrip flight on Spirit Air.  You can bring a bag on Spirit for free as long as it doesn’t exceed 16 x 14 x 12 inches.  Anything bigger & you’re looking at baggage fees starting at $30 per person, per leg.  That’s $120 for the both of us, I rather just buy new ish when we get there.  Why pay to bring the old stuff when we are just gonna go shopping anyway?
Normally I don’t mess with that airline cause I am a habitual flight misser and if you miss a flight on Spirit you are screwed, but at this price it’s worth the risk.  I was surprised how much stuff I got in that book bag, the most important things to pack was my Bose speaker aka the Port-a-Party, Falcons towel & a bathing suit.  There was no party’n so I didn’t have to worry about heels, hawtie attire, makeup, etc!  We had an awesome time, rented a Mustang convertible, she wanted to spend more time cruising than on the beach so I indulged. 
Looking like we are about to go on a hiking trip!


The beautiful view from the Marriott Biscayne Bay




I love, love, love Miami and at this price I can start going once maybe twice a month. See you next month for carnival Miami!!! But that trip is on Delta, can't risk not making carnival.
