Home for Spring Break!

Hi everyone! I'm home for spring break and don't let the snow fool you, I'm back in NC and it has been so warm! Sorry I didn't have access to my SLR so these are iPhone pictures. I've been wanting to try out this baseball cap trend for a while, I've been obsessed with the Southern Proper ones but I went to J. Crew and this was on sale for $11, and it matched what I was already wearing, so it was meant to be. It was even nice enough to get a Starbucks Frappucino instead of a latte, which was a nice change!

Now getting home was actually very difficult. Thursday afternoon, I got a call from Delta a few hours before I even left for the airport saying my connecting flight, that was going to take me home was cancelled. They re-booked me connecting through a different airport and through US Airways. I've never had a good experience with US Airways, ever. My first flight was fine, I got some Chick-Fil-A in the airport and I was already to take my next flight home. 
That flight was delayed for a little, and then an hour into the flight they said they couldn't land because of freezing rain so they took us all the way back to the airport we left from. By this time, it was almost midnight so there was no avoiding spending the night in the airport. They gave us all tickets for the next flight in the morning and I stayed in the little rooms people use for long layovers to take a nap or get some work done. 
About 6 hours later, Friday morning, I was ready to get on the next plane and get home. We boarded the plane, sat on the runway for a while and they said the flight was cancelled, so we all had to get off the plane. Next I was re-booked on a flight about an hour later from that time to a different NC airport. I boarded that flight, and they told us "we thought the captain was in the airport, but he's actually 45 minutes away" so it took about an hour and a half of sitting on the runway, and then we finally made it to NC! Of course, once I got there they lost my luggage (that was originally a carry on, but it was gate checked for the flight that got turned around!) but it was brought to my house the next day. It was so great to finally make it home and I was just lucky that the ice storm didn't take the power out at my house like it did for a lot of people in my area!

  3. I'm sorry your trip took so long! I saw all your tweets about it - that must have been so frustrating! Your outfit is too cute. I can't believe that hat was only $11!
