Hawaii and Lost Luggage!

I know I haven't blogged in about a week but A LOT has been going on! First things first, I just got back last night from Honolulu, Hawaii!! I was there attending a high school friend's wedding and also to go to a Marine base, an Army base and a Military hospital with my roommate, Gina with Pin Ups for Vets.

While it was a great trip and Hawaii is absolutely beautiful, it was hard to forget the fact that our luggage NEVER EVER made it there with us. Yep, that's right, NEVER! Gina and I checked one large black suitcase and evidently, it was tagged incorrectly and it ended up going all the way to Switzerland!! Ridiculous, right? How does something like the even happen?! I'm currently working on an angry letter to send to United right now. Has something like this ever happened to you? What did you do about it?

While we were in Hawaii shopping for clothes to wear, Gina's sweet mom was tirelessly calling United Airlines, trying to find out where our bag was! In the midst of all this mayhem, she found this funny poem that I had to share on here:

"I understand the mistake, but I need all my things
please find my bag, I need all the comfort it brings.

I can see from your eyes you wish I'd leave you alone
that I'd just go away and head right on back home.

But my ticket back is not for a couple of weeks
and without my old bag, this trip will be bleak.

Please find my bag, I need all the comfort it brings
without my stuff , the thought of staying here stings.

Please find my bag, without it I'm lost.
If a bribe will help, I'll pay any cost."

But the show must go on and Gina and I certainly went on with the trip the best we could. I'll put up a few pictures of our trip to Hawaii tomorrow when I finally get them all uploaded to my computer. Until then, enjoy this youtube video of our trip,

  1. Such a HUGE bummer, but I'm glad you were able to make the best of it and get some new things in the process care of United Airlines.

    Won't be flying them anytime soon.
