Cold weather & a bit of random thrown in

I'm in Indianapolis for the day & leaving to head home tomorrow evening. We've been enjoying seasonable winter weather in Charlotte (but honestly, who hasn't been?) so to step off the plane & feel the bite of winter cold was a bit of a shock.

I'm not sure what the highs will be here. This is one of the first times I've ever traveled for work and not checked the weather report. I most likely will be going from hotel to conference room so I don't expect to be outside much. Anyone else check weather.com before they travel?

On to the random...mostly travel & airport related.

Anyone ever people watched in an airport? It really is one of the more interesting parts of traveling. Different nationalities, different accents, fashion choices....oh my!

I've seen jeans that my mom would have worn 10 years ago on women barely older than me. Faded & maybe with a hint of acid wash.

I know we all want to be comfortable when we travel (at least I do) but I have what I call travel clothes that wear well out in public without looking sloppy. Typically a looser fitting black pant in a light material, a soft knit sweater & usually comfortable shoes that I can slip on & off. But I always have a pair of socks so I don't have to walk through the screening area barefoot! Do any of you also travel like this?

Little girls and boys with their parents in awe of the hugeness of the airport and almost overwhelmed with the excitement of flying on an airplane. That is a sight to behold. I also wonder how parents do it with a small child. I appreciate those whose children are quiet & excited on planes, not screaming & kicking my backseat.

I tend to tear up a bit when I see the young men in uniform boarding a plane. I try to thank them for their service when I see them. I also feel a tug on my heart because so many of them look so young. They're practically babies yet here they are defending our freedom.

Enough randomness for a morning. Hope you're all having a wonderful week! I can't wait until Friday!!

I love people watching in the airport, it's the most interesting!! I'm always wondering where they are going, where they are from, etc. And I always get emotional seeing guys/girls in uniform at the airport too!!

I'm with you on the uniform too. What gets me even more?
When I see a child tell them thank you.
That,my friend, is good parenting.

I try to dress comfortable when I travel (especially when on a long international flight) but I try to do comfy-cute!

I love people watching when I'm at the airport, the easiest and free way to entertain myself.
