Such a long day of travel – I’m happy to be home!  Nothing feels as good as coming home to the Husband and the dogs.


My layover was at Minneapolis/St. Paul.  Once again, I am SO impressed with that airport.  There’s an entire MALL in the center.  It was easy to find something delicious to eat for lunch with so many options.


I got a grilled cheese, spinach, and sundried tomato sandwich with chips.



Tasted as amazing as it looks. 


So – it’s that time again… time for the Best (Worst?) of Sky Mall.  For our reading pleasure, Delta provided us all with this gleaming copy of Sky Mall giggle at browse.  Here’s part one ofthe Best (Worst?) of Sky Mall!


First up:  The Zombie of Montclaire Moore Statue!  Yours for the completely reasonable price of $89.95.  Because who says you can’t enjoy all the tacky trappings of Halloween all year long?


Next, we have the incredible ROM Machine, which allows you to get a full workout in just four minutes.  I know they say that 97% of people who rent it, buy it, but I just cannot see how this would possibly work.  Also – did you catch the price tag?  $14,615!  Has anyone ever tried this?  It’s both completely ridiculous and entirely intriguing. 


Here’s another gadget that I hate to admit I want to try… the Magic Wand Remote Control.  Kind of awesome, right?  Especially if you had a kid and could convince them you were a wizard who had the capability to change channels with your magical wand.  All yours for just $89.95. 


Many people commented that they couldn’t believe I didn’t include this little gem in the last Sky Mall review. I think this has been in the magazine for at least 15 years.  I fly pretty frequently, and yet I’ve never actually seem someone use one of these… probably because it would be more embarrassing than just sleeping against the window with your mouth open.  Can you imagine if your seatmate started to inflate a SkyRest?  I would probably take a picture of passing out against it.  Yours for $29.95!


And last, but not least, I’ve got to give love to the Slanklet (blanket with sleeves?), but only because you can also buy a SIAMESE SLANKET for couples.  In case you’re wondering, I have an itch to buy a Siamese Slanket in “Sofa Safari” for the Husband and I. 


Oh, Sky Mall.  How would I survive long flights without you?


PS – If you actually own any of these items, please tell me if they are actually AWESOME.  I think Sky Malls sells some great stuff.  You just need to NEED it!  Like I need that Dog Genealogy Test Kit for James.



  • The Teenage Taste May 10, 2011, 7:49 pm

    I have to admit, I think I like the sound of Slanket better than Snuggie. 😉
    Have a safe trip, Caitlin!

  • Amanda (Eating Up) May 10, 2011, 8:11 pm

    I miss the Snuggie craze already!

  • Evan Thomas May 10, 2011, 8:13 pm

    I so want the wand.

  • Amanda- The Nutritionist Reviews May 10, 2011, 8:14 pm

    That does look like an amazing sandwich!

  • Holly @ The Runny Egg May 10, 2011, 8:14 pm

    I want a siamese slanket!!! I have a snuggie and I love it.

  • Angela (Oh She Glows) May 10, 2011, 8:14 pm

    bahaha. No words. No words. I would like one of each for some strange reason.
    Thanks for the giggle. 🙂

  • Andrea May 10, 2011, 8:14 pm

    Not sure how I feel about the Siamese Slanket. The husband and I each have our own snuggies (which we love) and I’d rather not share.

  • Amanda May 10, 2011, 8:14 pm

    Ok so, my dad travels a lot for work and would bring a Sky Mall home for me to look at since I loved them so much. Many a Christmas gift was bought from that thing (i.e., phone with HUGE buttons to put your friends pics for speed dial, shampoo/conditioner dispenser for the shower wall, SLANKET – better than a snuggie!!). Also, my dad got my mom a dog genealogy kit since our dog is adopted and it was FASCINATING to learn what he was a mix of. Never would have guessed it, but now we can totally see it. Worth the splurge!!!

    • CaitlinHTP May 10, 2011, 8:43 pm

      I always wanted the phone with HUGE friend buttons!!!

  • Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) May 10, 2011, 8:22 pm

    I grew up in MN and that airport was “under construction” for about 20 years. But they FINALLY are done and yes, it’s a winner! Live in San Diego for the past 7 yrs so rarely go thru the Mpls anymore except to visit fam/friends but yes, they do have their act together up there 🙂

    • Kris May 11, 2011, 7:44 am

      I grew up in the Twin Cities, and fly in and out all the time. I don’t ever remember it being “under construction” for twenty years. Yes,a concourse has been added, along w/ a shuttle to that concourse, and there is now light rail, but the main terminal has been much the same for a long time. It’s a fabulous airport and one of the top rated in the U.S., along with another great airport here in Tampa. Unfortunately, I’ve never sampled the restaurants since I’m well fed when I’m visiting.

      • Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) May 11, 2011, 7:55 am

        Maybe I was exaggerating. Joking a bit 🙂 I just remember it, along with the Crosstown/62, always being under construction. Have a great day 🙂

        • Michelle May 11, 2011, 12:54 pm

          62 is STILL under construction!! I don’t think it’ll ever end.

  • Alicia May 10, 2011, 8:25 pm

    EVERY time we fly somewhere my four year old grabs the magazine to search out the garden zombie. He thinks it’s so funny.
    I have never bought anything from there BUT I am tempted by the alarm clock that wakes you up with a butler’s voice and many different butler-esque sayings. For example “Excuse me madam, I’m so sorry to disturb you, but it appears to be morning… Very inconvenient, I agree… I believe it is the rotation of the Earth that is to blame” It’s $99 though–a little much for an alarm clock!

    • Jenny May 11, 2011, 12:28 pm

      That’s hysterical! I’ve never seen it but it sounds great!

  • Alayna @ Thyme Bombe May 10, 2011, 8:25 pm

    Wow. I think I would have to order my Siamese Slanket in the “Impending Bloom” pattern. Cuz, you know, puns make it warmer.

  • edwina May 10, 2011, 8:26 pm

    a slanket? what is the different between that and a snuggie, or are they the same thing?

    i want a snuggie – my friend has a hot pink one but i know it would look completely ridiculous! haha think i will just stick to my uggs

  • Phoebe May 10, 2011, 8:31 pm

    I so want the dog genealogy kit! Like you I think that my dog is the genetic perfection of mutt and would love to find out what his special makeup is.

  • Kristy@RunTheLongRoad May 10, 2011, 8:32 pm

    I love Sky Mall! Every time I see that picture of the guy sleeping on a SkyRest, I laugh. Seriously, who buys this stuff?! I do own a Slanket (I got it as a gag gift). Other than it being 5 sizes too big, it’s pretty cool. My husband hates it 🙂

  • Diana @ My Little Part May 10, 2011, 8:33 pm

    Not gonna lie, I have a terrible time sleeping on airplanes. If it were actually comfortable (someone tell me if it is!) I would totally buy it for an international flight. My flights two and from Europe last summer were miserable.

    • CaitlinHTP May 10, 2011, 8:44 pm

      Let’s see if we can find someone who owns it and can review it!


      • jen May 11, 2011, 12:25 am

        my two good friends have the skyrest! they purchased it for their trip to hawaii from philadelphia and loved it. i then got to sit next to them on a trip to madrid and laugh at how ridiculous they looked! that thing is huge! they def got lots of weird looks. haha

        • Becca May 11, 2011, 9:59 am

          I own a skyrest. I love it and have used it on several flights from the NYC to Uganda.

          I’m a little short, so it can be challenging to get the skyrest at just the right height for me by stuffing books/blankets under it.

          Yes, it can be cumbersome once inflated.
          Yes, you get weird looks.
          But sometimes it’s more important to get some good sleep!

          I wouldn’t recommend it for regional flights. Great for long haul flights.

    • Baking 'n' Books May 10, 2011, 9:08 pm

      I was going to say the same thing 😉 I could never sleep upright on a plane and even reclining back a little was no good. I’d do better if I could turn my head and just do what that guy is doing I think.

      But I never fly – so won’t need to spend $30 soon 😉

    • Elliott May 10, 2011, 10:20 pm

      I own the Skyrest and It. Is. Awesome. Did I feel rather ridiculous using it on a 12 hour flight in coach? Yes, in the beginning, but then I was laughing at the poor folks who looked like death getting off the plane.

      SkyResters unite!

    • Diana @ My Little Part May 10, 2011, 10:31 pm

      For the record, I know how to spell *to.

      And Elliott, thank you! I am planning on another trip overseas next year and I might just have to get it!

      • Jamie May 10, 2011, 11:04 pm

        Does it count as a carry-on?? I can’t imagine lugging that sucker through the terminal!

    • Amber May 11, 2011, 12:53 pm

      I would totally buy that, my neck always feels awful after sleeping on a plane!

  • Diana @ My Little Part May 10, 2011, 8:33 pm

    The SkyRest, that is.

  • Mary @ Bites and Bliss May 10, 2011, 8:37 pm

    That pillow thing is ridiculous. I laugh every time I see it. I can see how it’d be comfortable but seriously, who would use that?!

  • Katie @ peacebeme May 10, 2011, 8:42 pm

    I love laughing at Sky MaLL!

  • maria @ Chasing the Now May 10, 2011, 8:44 pm

    I would totally buy that pillow for the long flight from Tokyo to the States… it’s miserable not being able to sleep well on a plane.

  • Brittney May 10, 2011, 8:45 pm

    My dad has the ROM but swears he didn’t pay that much for it. It is quite a workout!

    • Whitney May 10, 2011, 9:20 pm

      Does it do what it says? Is it worth it you think?

      • Brittney May 11, 2011, 10:15 am

        I don’t know if anything is worth *that* much money. He bought it because he had already lost 100+ pounds and wanted to tone up the areas he couldn’t in the gym. It looks like a torture device, but you set it according to your weight and then do rowing-type exercises for four minutes and then a super intense stair climb for four minutes.

  • Christine May 10, 2011, 8:47 pm

    It does make sense their airport would be so mall-ish, given the fact the Twin Cities are home to the overwhleming, ginormous Mall of America.

    I wonder how many people by from Sky Mall…

    • Christine May 10, 2011, 8:47 pm

      “Buy” not “by!” Bad English teacher, wrist slap, wrist slap!

  • Caley May 10, 2011, 8:49 pm

    Can you imagine going through security with that SkyRest? Good grief!

  • Michelle May 10, 2011, 8:54 pm

    *shame* I have a slanket! Not a double one though. 🙂 It’s pretty awesome. My dog think it’s her slanket though. 🙂

  • Clare @ Fitting It All In May 10, 2011, 8:55 pm

    Um I HAVE that blue tray table pillow!! I bought it for my trip to Europe and YES I used it. I cannot sleep on planes, so I needed it!

  • Julie (Food & Other Things) May 10, 2011, 8:57 pm

    That sandwich looks delicious! I love seeing the products in the Sky Mall magazine!

  • Cynthia (It All Changes) May 10, 2011, 8:58 pm

    A friend has the slanket and loves it. She reads with it on the couch.

    I have a snuggie and LOVE it. I even wrote a post about my love it.

  • Meaghan May 10, 2011, 9:01 pm

    I love the Minneapolis airport! Actually, I love airports in general- all sorts of people traveling different places, the continued rush and excitement, and the great people-watching opportunities… truly one of my favorite places.

    The SkyMall magazine always does a nice job keeping me entertained during take-off and landing. I wonder if there is a SkyMall store or warehouse somewhere?

  • Erin @ The Grass Skirt May 10, 2011, 9:05 pm

    OMG! I am obsessed with my slanket. I am totally ordering the couples slanket for my husband as a joke (which is what my slanket was originally supposed to be, but it ended up being my all time favorite invention).

  • chelsey @ clean eating chelsey May 10, 2011, 9:10 pm

    That wand is insanely amazing – I love it!

  • Kacy May 10, 2011, 9:11 pm

    Um I kind of want a SkyRest. I have no shame and it looks comfortable!!

  • Miranda @ Working Mom Works Out May 10, 2011, 9:11 pm

    “Expensive but Fantastic”

    Bwahahaha. That’s my new motto!

  • Ashley @thefitacademic May 10, 2011, 9:13 pm

    hilarious! I love seeing all the crazy/cooky stuff in SkyMall!

  • Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) May 10, 2011, 9:22 pm

    That zombie is awesome! I’m glad you’re home with your family. Enjoy them.

  • Aja May 10, 2011, 9:31 pm

    Whenever I flew I loved reading SkyMall, but they removed it from the airline I fly frequently. There is some pretty crazy stuff in that and I like getting a laugh in on a long flight.

  • Courtney May 10, 2011, 9:32 pm

    hahaha I love reading Skymall! so funny 😀

  • Tammy May 10, 2011, 9:33 pm

    Not gonna lie, I saw the remote control wand on my last flight and my wizarding-world aspirations were stirred up once again 🙂

  • Kari May 10, 2011, 9:36 pm

    I want the remote control wand pretty much a lot. I wonder how my roommates would feel if I started changing channels with a wand though? Probably awesome.

  • chelsea May 10, 2011, 9:37 pm

    My husband sleeps like guy in the Sky Rest ad on a plane, just without the sky rest. He puts his head on the seat in front of him and sleeps the entire trip! I think its dirty and horrible for your neck, lol!

    • Pamela May 10, 2011, 10:21 pm

      Cheap alternative to neck pain and the blue travel pillow? Shove a few soft things into the very top of your backpack (does anyone besides me always fill it to capacity when they fly?), and then use it in your lap like the pillow. I have slept so hard I’ve dreamed with that trick. I probably look silly but I don’t realize because hey, I’m sleeping!

  • Krista @ Journey to a Healthy Berg May 10, 2011, 9:42 pm

    The slanket is totally a knock-off Snuggie.

  • Jenny May 10, 2011, 9:43 pm

    The slanket is MUCH better quality than the snuggie. Thicker, bigger. I’m Canadian so my husband had to order one online from the US for me, so I think it ended up costing $80!! 🙂 But I love it and use it everyday.

  • Rachel @ The Perseverance Diaries May 10, 2011, 9:53 pm

    I seriously laughed out loud at the siamese slanket! I agree that sofa safari is by far the best color scheme there is.

  • Sarah @ The Pajama Chef May 10, 2011, 9:59 pm

    slanket? what a hilarious name 🙂 but those things are warm… i don’t have one though!

  • Abby May 10, 2011, 10:13 pm

    The Siamese Slanket is too funny! I have a Snuggie and I don’t even think it is warm. It is super thin! lol.

  • Melissa R. May 10, 2011, 10:14 pm

    I actually bought the yard yeti (maybe from your first installment) as a joke for a friend. They loved it so much they dress it up for all occasions and even took it trick or treating. It became the mascot for their daughter’s soccer team and now they are the Yeti Storms and it travels all over Colorado with them….all because we sent it to them as a joke. BEST $100 ever!!! Love SkyMall 🙂

    • Jenny May 11, 2011, 12:33 pm

      Almost choked as I ate my salad, that is too funny and weird!

  • Nikki May 10, 2011, 10:27 pm

    I think you should definitely get the dog genealogy kit! We thought our SPCA-adopted kitty was just some crazy mutt, but he ended up being a pure-bred cat. I don’t think cat people care as much as dog people, but I still think it makes him baller.

  • Esther May 10, 2011, 10:29 pm

    The French Meadow Bakery is the best (I am from Minneapolis)! If you ever get to spend time in Minneapolis, be sure to check out their restaurant. Sooo many tasty, delicious, and healthy options!!!!

  • Victoria May 10, 2011, 10:32 pm

    Ha. Expensive but Fantastic! is probably the best (and possibly most honest) tagline I’ve read in a long time.

  • Leah @ Why Deprive? May 10, 2011, 10:36 pm

    I love how the ad for that ROM Machine says “expensive but fantastic”. That convinced me! 🙂

  • Laura @ Backstage Pass May 10, 2011, 10:38 pm

    Bahahaha – Sky Mall is sooooo funny. I always picture some rich, bored business traveler (I guess like the main character in Fight Club?) with an apartment full of Sky Mall items.
    How tacky is the zombie garden statue? So creepy!

  • Molly @ RDexposed May 10, 2011, 10:41 pm

    I haven’t been looking forward to all of my layovers (one being in MN), but now it’s not looking half bad with inventive entertainment.

  • Rosi May 10, 2011, 10:45 pm

    I don’t have a slanket or a snuggie, but I do have a similar thing. It works like a snuggie… has two snaps to make the arm sleeves and a zipper up the front, but then… It unfolds into a regular quilted throw should you wanna use it like that.
    I’m into versatility. 😀
    Can’t remember the name of it, but Cannon
    ( makes it.

  • Katy (The Singing Runner) May 10, 2011, 10:51 pm

    Bahahahaha! LOVE this! 😀

  • Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife May 10, 2011, 10:52 pm

    HAHA 🙂

    Love your sandwich-yuymmm!

  • Wendy May 10, 2011, 10:55 pm

    Hahahah – I can just imagine what would happen to the TV if my 4 year old got a hold of that wand! Also, the Slanket reminded me of the 6’5″ math teacher at the high school where I teach – he wore a Snuggie to work for pajama day during spirit week in February! He looked like a druid.

  • Sable@SquatLikeALady May 10, 2011, 11:02 pm

    hahahahha SkyRest was in the SkyMall the last time I flew, back in February. I died laughing.

    And for real? Do people buy that $14,000 contraption that allows them to ‘exercise’ in 4 minutes??? How do I create something useless and awful and get people to pay exorbinant amounts for it???

  • Tori (Fresh Fruition) May 10, 2011, 11:10 pm

    Oh, snap! A wand remote control!? I need that! Okay, maybe I don’t NEED it, but how cool would that be? Too bad its so expensive.

  • Ashley @ Feeding Ashley May 10, 2011, 11:15 pm

    I love the wand, but I was never a fan of the snuggie crase, or slanket or blanket jumpsuit.

  • Running Mama May 10, 2011, 11:26 pm

    Love the snuggie and the airplane pillow, and that sandwich looks so yum!

  • Muna May 10, 2011, 11:34 pm

    I have the slanket and it’s definitely better than a snuggie! I used to laugh at people who wear slanket before I moved to chicago…it’s cold here and slanket is a must! 😀

  • Melissa May 10, 2011, 11:42 pm

    Is it sad that I have a Snuggie and love it? In fact, I was washing it the other day and thought I should probably get a new one before next fall!

  • Jolene ( May 11, 2011, 12:06 am

    Hehe, I took a picture of the “Sky Rest” on my last flight 🙂

    I love sky mall!

  • Mac May 11, 2011, 12:06 am

    I love looking at the Sky Mall… there are always such entertaining items in there!

  • Gina @ RunningtotheKitchen May 11, 2011, 12:07 am

    I was just at MSP last week and ate at the exact same place! It definitely has the best food of the entire airport. I had a 3 hour layover so I walked the whole thing twice before deciding to eat there. Glad I did too!

    I’ve totally seen the sky rest before and thought the same thing. can you even imagine someone blowing that thing up on a plane?

  • Khushboo May 11, 2011, 12:10 am

    What a cool mall! That 4-min per day exercise machine is crazy!….may as well pay for lipo eh!

  • McKella May 11, 2011, 12:17 am

    I hate to admit it, but I’d definitely use a Slanket, or a Snuggie, or whatever because I love to curl up on the couch with a book and a blanket. Of course, I could always wear my bathrobe backwards.

  • Katherine @ Neon Blonde Runner May 11, 2011, 12:46 am

    OOOh my gosh, that zombie thing is ridiculous!!!!!

  • Elena @ GagaForGrapefruit May 11, 2011, 1:11 am

    what’s the different between the slanket and the snuggie?!

  • Kate (What Kate is Cooking) May 11, 2011, 1:15 am

    Haha! Sky Mall has entertained me on many long flights 🙂 I saw a huge statue of Big Foot in one of the magazines once- WHY?!

  • Tiffany May 11, 2011, 1:30 am

    I LOVE my slanket! I actually got it after seeing it in SkyMall, a few years before the Snuggie craze. It definitely helped for long, cold nights of studying & essays during college!

  • Emma (Namaste Everyday) May 11, 2011, 4:22 am

    I might NEED that remote control wand, lol

  • Hats @ See How She Runs May 11, 2011, 4:46 am

    I bought one for my mum (she gets cold easily) after hearing my friend rave about them. Both my mum and my friend say they’re really comfortable and warm. I like the idea of being under a fluffy blanket and being able to use my hands.

  • Jumanah (Healthy Living in the Middle East) May 11, 2011, 4:49 am

    I want that remote control wand! I bet I could entertain my 3 year old twins for hours with it!

  • Nicole May 11, 2011, 5:14 am

    I’ve never really looked at sky mall before but I think I’m going to have to start!

  • Shannon May 11, 2011, 7:02 am

    I just had to say, as you know I’m from Minnesota and YES, EVERYONE loves the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport!!! When I was in graduate school in Chicago 15 years ago, a friend of mine from CA used to rhapsodize about the airport every time he had a layover here on his way back home for breaks. I was going to mention it in my last comment about Ivanhoe but forgot. It’s very luxurious!

  • Rhona @ May 11, 2011, 7:04 am

    I got to experience the wonder that is SkyMall for the first time on holiday in the US last month – I don’t know why I didn’t take it with me; I tried to describe some of the wonderful goods to my partner – he didn’t believe half of it!

  • Ash @ Good Taste Healthy Me May 11, 2011, 8:07 am

    LOL these are the most ridiculous things I’ve ever seen!

  • Beth @ 990 Square May 11, 2011, 8:14 am

    I have a snuggie (not a slanket) and I LOVE IT! So warm! I got it at Walt Disney World, so it’s covered with Mickey heads, but yeah, I love it!

  • Bethany May 11, 2011, 8:26 am

    My sister has a pillow similar to the skyrest. I think she used it on her trip to Hungary. She said it’s actually comfortable

  • Amanda May 11, 2011, 8:46 am

    So funny. I’m terrified of Snuggies, so the whole Siamese thing really freaks me out. I’ve seen someone use a beach ball on a plane to sleep on (like the big blue thing). They said they swore by it.

  • salah@myhealthiestlifestyle May 11, 2011, 8:47 am

    ghahaha sky mall is so fun to read

  • Halley (Blunder Construction) May 11, 2011, 8:50 am

    Awesome finds… that ROM thing can’t be for real! My boyfriend’s product was once featured in SkyMall, so they do sell some normal stuff!

  • Samantha Angela May 11, 2011, 9:04 am

    I’m guessing that ROM machine uses Tabata intervals. You can really do any cardio with tabata intervals and get an exercise in 4 minutes

  • Erin @ Big Girl Feats May 11, 2011, 9:13 am

    I want to fly now just to look at the ridiculous things in Sky Mall. The wand would be amazing to convince your children you had magic powers.

  • Caitlin @ The Caitie Experiment May 11, 2011, 9:13 am

    I somehow obtained an official “Support Breast Cancer Research” Snuggie in (what else?!) hot pink. Boyfriend is, to say the least, not amused. In fact, he’s so terrified of it that he hid it on the top shelf of our hall closet, which I can’t even reach on a step stool! He’s going to pay when my best friend comes to visit, though… she’s 5’11 and owns a matching Snuggie!

  • Sarah T. May 11, 2011, 9:27 am

    Love SkyMall! I really, really, really want to order a massage chair. How awesome would it be to have that in your home? But the Magic Wand Remote is pretty awesome too.

  • Nicole May 11, 2011, 9:30 am

    I don’t have a Slanket but I do have a Snuggie and I love it!

  • Jenna May 11, 2011, 9:30 am

    I do love my MSP airport. I am a frequent visitor of French Meadow myself. 🙂 Glad you got home to your family!

  • Katie @ Healthy Heddleston May 11, 2011, 9:41 am

    My MIL got me a Slanket and I’m pretty sure the Slanket existed before the Snuggie haha. They’re very similar but I think my Slanket is thicker than the Snuggie.

    Isn’t the MSP airport the best? I may be a bit biased, but it is honestly the nicest airport I’ve ever been in! French Meadow Cafe and Surdyk’s Flights are my fave! 🙂 (And the Body Shop gets me every time.)

    This post made me laugh out loud in my cubicle. Browsing the Sky Mall is probably the most entertaing part of flying. That’s where I first saw pajama jeans before they hit the tv commercials, and Jammies (pajamas with feet for adults) have pretty much the funnies photograph ad i have ever seen in my life. I was so amusted i even tore it out and have it somewhere at home.

    I want the Dog Genealogy test kit SO BADLY. Puppyface is the cutest dog I’ve ever seen and no one can tell what breed she is. The most we’ve gotten is “some kind of terrier”.

    And the MSP is the best. I spent a lot of time there when Babyface and I were long-distance (me in Indiana, him in Canada).

    Wow that stuff is insane. How do people afford such things??

    SkyMall was where I found a poem I used in a class assignment, I think… Pretty sure. In my high school Psych 2 class, we had to do “Life Projects” which consisted of planning the rest of our lives (as well as revisiting our childhood). I found a poem in the SkyMall mag, I’m pretty sure, that I used for the “marriage” portion of my project. People kept asking me if I’d written it and I was like, “Um, no. I found it…”

    The MPS/SP airport is pretty impressive. And MN /does/ have the MOA, so … it kind of makes sense that the airport would be ginormously amazing. Haha. 🙂

    Next time you’re in the Minneapolis area, let me know!! Especially if it’s in the next two and a half years. I will totally swing by and hang out!
    Actually, I think I need to get you to come to my hometown or somewhere nearby, but I’m not sure who’d be willing to host a presentation. You could definitely crash in our house instead of a hotel, though… Haha. 🙂

    I saw that zombie lawn art the last time I flew. It cracked me up.

    Love the French Meadow Bakery!!

    I have been wanting the skyrest pillow for a while. We travel a lot and I always hunch over and sleep on the tray table…I cannot sleep sitting up. That pillow looks a lot more comfortable.

    I freaking love your Sky Mall posts. Thank you!

  • Laura (Starloz) May 11, 2011, 8:12 pm

    i love the $14,000 exercise machine that you only use for 4 minutes a day. like woah, seriously.

  • Kate @ Walking in the Rain May 11, 2011, 10:33 pm

    I love Sky Mall! I’m so bummed Alaska Airlines no longer carries those catalogs on their planes. (At least I have seen one in awhile, maybe someone keeps taking them home to buy out of.)

    You can also check out Ethan Allen for some high style furniture to go with your new decor and even stop by Select Comfort for a new bed! If the kids are with you they will love building a teddy bear of their own that they can take home with them at Build-A-Bear-Workshop.
