Booked a Trip to Mardi Gras

We just booked a trip to New Orleans for Mardi Gras. We will post pictures when there. David was able to use the Spirit Airline points we had with our Spirit Card we have, but I could not get mine to work.

TIP: Spirit Airlines is very difficult to work with on points. They messed our names on the application and it did not match with our spirit club, so could not book a trip – we tried to call them and ran into this giant circle loop of endless nonsense. Eventually I will spend those points, but not this trip.

Were a Metro Detroit, Michigan, couple โ€“ second marriages for both of us โ€“ and we dream of retiring early to Travel the World. Follow us while we try and figure out to raise our kids, and save to retire. David is a Robot Programmer, Laura is a Medical Physicist. We put our kids before ourselves for years, saved and ate at home and now after years of all this sacrifice and raising our kids - we are closing in on empty nesting, and we realized we have the opportunity to retire earlier than most and follow our dreams to travel the world. How are we going to do this? Well we have a lot of ideas, but lets see how it works out. Our original retirement date was January 1, 2021. We are reviewing the option of working another 3 years but prefer to keep the 2021 date, either way we will be retired by 55 years old - still trying to figure out how, but working toward our goal everyday, while enjoying each other and our blended family. Follow us to see what happens. All images on this blog are copyright (c)

    1. Ha, we started Watching the oringals as well. we are only 2 seasons in, but we were watching the spin off -legacy – and then realized there was a back story and have started watching that, but have alot to catch up on. That is a great show!

      1. Exactly! I would certainly not ruin the thrill with spoilers, but Originals is a spin-off series of The Vampire Diaries and to understand the 5th and last season you would have to see The Vampire Diaries because some characters of TVD come in the last seasons. In fact, a character came even in the third season, so I suggest you either put a pause to The Originals and watch TVD (Total 8 seasons) or you familiarize yourself with the characters and the storylines over the seasons and continue watching Originals and then watch TVD if interested (the latter being what I did)

  1. I traveled to New Orleans as a teenager with some of my family. We enjoyed wandering around and eating delicious food a lot! I can only begin to imagine what Mardi Gras would be like to experience in person. I look forward to seeing and hearing how your trip unfolds in a future blog post… Travel safely!!!

  2. Just so you are prepared, New Orleans tends to be a cash economy and a lot of places don’t take credit/debit cards. They want the green stuff. Have a great time on your trip!
