Football Season Is Coming–Games with the Girls Can Be A Real Ball!

Football season is upon us! I love going to football games. One of my favorite vacations involved traveling to Tampa Bay to watch my Patriots play the Tampa Bay Buccanears. I admit I am a fair-weather fan. I need to have sunshine and at least 60 degrees but when all the elements are in place it’s the best.

Football games, whether college or professional are perfect girlfriend getaway destinations. The tail-gaiting is a blast, the excitement of the game is a thrill, the people watching is always great and if you happen to be single then where else can you be surrounded by men? You just may have to look past the beer drinking and face paint.

Email or call the girls, compare your schedules, pack your BYOG Football fan tshirts and your face paint and GET READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL!

An Aviophobe Finds “Comfort” in a New Travel Accessory

Plane ComfortBelieve it or not, even though travel is my business, I really don’t like flying. Over the years I have found a few tricks to ease my anxieties. Meditation, a personal DVD player, valium and now Planecomfort® .

Planecomfort® is an all-in-one travel comfort kit. This cleverly designed travel accessory provides three essential comfort items (50″ x 60″ microfleece blanket, fleece-topped pillowcase and inflatable pillow) in a handy and hands-free tote. The cozy comforts of home, packed to go with you, wherever you travel.

I love the fun and flirty zebra stripe design (also in dots, navy, red and black) that houses the most snuggly, lightweight fleece blanket in an energizing shade of pink. My 7 year old daughter agreed, it’s as comfy as her “blankie” and much cleaner. Perfect for a drafty plane or when you need an extra barrier between you and the stranger in the next seat.

For added convenience, the outside zippered pocket is the perfect place to stow your boarding pass, ID, magazine or snack and included with the fashion prints is a coordinating luggage identifier for your checked bag. How cool is that!”

I was just blown away by the value of this product. $29.99 for the solid styles, $39.99 for the fashion print.

Planecomfort® is ideal for use on planes, trains, and motor coaches – no more sharing pillows and blankets with strangers. I am placing my order for all my sisters to receive one as a special gift before our sister getaway in September.

Other uses for my Planecomfort® :

  • Soccer and/or football games– nylon bag for my butt, blanket for my shoulders
  • Campfires
  • Out on the boat
  • Automobile emergency kit (add a first aid kit to the front pocket)
  • Sleepovers for the kids
  • Daycare

B.Y.O.G.G. (Bring Your Own Green Girlfriend!)

Don’t ask me why, but I am taking a college biology class! I’ve spent the last week listening to lectures, watching films and discussing how humans are ruining the planet. It may not have pushed me to trade in my SUV (it’s all paid off, I can’t do that) but I did make some “baby steps”!

  • I bought “green” dish detergent

  • I put more effort into my recycling activities

  • I did not turn around 5 miles into my trip to pick up the Star Wars toy my 4 year old forgot back at the house

  • I did book a weekend stay at the “Greenest Hotel in San Francisco” The Orchard Garden Hotel and the Orchard Hotel in San Francisco.

  • I will book a Beach Boot Camp with Bella Vita. I know it is indulgent but I feel it is my duty to the environment since Bella Vita is Bella Green

What can you do to save the planet…or maybe just 1 tree at a time? Discover more about the “Greenest Hotel in San Fran”
