Well as promised here is my recap of an amazing girls trip. I have been to Miami several times and not once have I ever had a bad time. Let ms say that fun was had by all. We went to celebrate my friend Cheryl’s 37th birthday. I think she had a good birthday. Shout out to the friends who weren’t able to make it this time, I am sure there will be other opportunities. You were missed!
So I wont detail every moment but I will hit you with the highlights. One this was my first time traveling on Jet Blue Airways. They have the best snacks. Southwest used to be my go to for flights with their snack boxes but as you know they switched out the snacks for free luggage. Now yes I paid the 25 for the luggage on Jet Blue but the flight attendants were awesome and the snacks were even better. So it was a win-win for me. The airlines are rolling a new program that for the folks that want to fly budget, it will cost you. For one you have to pay for your luggage to be checked and you are ONLY allowed one carry on that must fit under the seat. Which means like a handbag or one small bag not a suitcase of any sort. Do not be fooled when I tell you they mean business. If you show up trying to go through with a bag larger than a handbag or more than one they will immediately check it at a price to you. So either get that above budget seat because the use of overhead compartments for budget seating is not happening.
Once off our flight, the humidity hit us so super hard. It was a bit overwhelming. It’s been years since I have had to use an asthma pump but I thought I might need it. No stopping team no sleep was in full effect. We were all over the South beach strip eating, drinking and laughing. Later that night we ventured off to Liv Miami. The guest of the night was none other than Dj Khaled. We were in the front of the action. Let me say, he really is his own hype man. It’s not just something he does on television. He believes in his brand and makes others believe in it too. I also had the pleasure of meeting @Lalasizahands89. She was super nice. If you don’t know her follow her on Instragam at that handle and you won’t be disappointed. Word to the wise she ain’t for the stuffy so head over at your own risk.
The next day after we got in at 6am, yes 6am we got some rest and started up for another adventure. It’s been years definitely prekid days of coming in before the sun came up. I had a blast. We decided to do one of those double-decker bus tours of Miami Beach area. It was great. We zoomed past Usher and Diddy’s house. I did my little “take that” dance as we rolled past. It was good to see the city so high up off the ground. It definitely gave a better perspective than just walking. The tour guide was super awesome. We had to rush home because after stopping at Bubba Gumps restaurant, shopped and did some more walking and drinking we had to hurry to get to our reservation for Drinkhouse Fire and Ice Lounge. This was probably the highlight of my trip. It was hella cold in there. Of course we had the fur coats, socks, and fur boots because let’s face it, frost bite is not of the Lord but the dancing, drinks and fun was super amazing. However the entire room is full of ice. It was magical with the lights changing colors and the drinks out of you guessed it, ice cups.
Overall the trip was fun. It was good to get away. It’s always good to celebrate daily and why not take a trip to celebrate a birthday if you can. I definitely would recommend going to Miami. The culture is amazing. I learned a lot more on this trip than in previous years. You could see minimal damage from the Hurricane but they are making it better. We had nothing but great hospitality, great food, even better drinks, and a renewed sense of friendship. To the next girl’s trip!!!!
