It was, it was really great of them! Especially since they had to drive us to the airport super-early that morning!

Mental note to go to Target this weekend!
Hahahaha okay, I totally used to be like that too! But since my heart surgery, all of my food allergies disappeared, and my lactose intolerance improved greatly too. Also, I started eating yogurt, which I've read can have a great affect on lactose intolerance. So between the two, I have been able to eat pizza, ice cream, pretty much anything with no or very little effect! (The only thing I still take Lactaid with is cheesecake, but I've had small amounts of it with no problem.)

The funniest part of all of this is I used to be absolutely disgusted by yogurt, didn't even want to be in the same room with it, gross gross gross. Now I have it every morning! (Always with a flavor or mix-in or whatnot, I still can't stand plain or Greek yogurt - too yogurty!)

So if you guys can stand (or actually like!) yogurt, I'd definitely recommend eating some and seeing if it helps at all!

Hahaha thank you! (That's actually down the street from our home, our actual view is parking lot too )

Right??? Doesn't he realize that his corned beef hash is an integral part of our story here???

Thankfully, I don't have lactose intolerance...I seriously could not live without dairy! My BF on the other hand...if he even LOOKS at dairy he's got problems! He actually was eating the greek yogurt for a while but has since stopped....although he would STILL have to take a lactaid pill with it...is that NOT supposed to happen? Should he be able to eat yogurt without it?

Originally I thought that was the case, because of the active live cultures, but I was googling and it seems that people that are lactose intolerant can have a problem with yogurt too (it doesn't have a lot of milk cultures, but they can be there, apparently)! It sounds like your BF's lactose intolerance affects him a lot more than mine does! However, I have seen soy and coconut yogurts in the store if that's something your BF might be interested in trying, I really like coconut milk substitutes for dairy. I was drinking almond milk for awhile too, that's not bad either.

You can fly! You can fly! You can fly!

Very early the next day (I can't even say bright and early, it was still quite some time before the sun rose!) we got up and drove to the airport.

What the moon looks like when you're trying to stealthily take a picture in the backseat of a car driving down the highway.



(The stealth mode was on because Wingnut's dad was also in the car with us and I didn't want to give away that I was already taking pictures at 5:30 AM)

Another try?



Well, it's...wigglier.

We soon got to the airport, and quickly got through bag check (WITH the ME tags attached! ) and security, because, well, apparently no one else wants to be at the airport at 5:35 on a Sunday morning.

Go figure.

We strolled up to our gate at (checks timestamp of the next photo) 6:02 AM. Well, it actually says 7:02, but I'm pretty sure I didn't change the time for Daylight Savings Time.

(Hey, half of of the year it's correct! )

So, I had absolutely NO idea that there was one of these in our airport, let alone about 20 feet from our gate!



Not shockingly, they weren't open yet, and I meandered around the area for a few minutes before I decided that I really wasn't up for roast beef this early in the morning, and I made my way to one of those standard airport little shops with newspapers and drinks and pastries.

(It's always a good time for pastries!)



Yes, I was being literal when I used the plural form of pastry. And yes, this was all mine.

ALL MINE.



I decided to start off with my chocolate croissant. I may or may not have offered to share. Begrudgingly.

Wingnut decided it would probably make for a more cheerful flight companion if he ventured and found a breakfast of his own (hey, I can't help that I get the hunger grumpies). He picked out a cinnamon raisin bagel with (I believe) butter. It was either butter or cream cheese. Nothing out of the ordinary.



We settled in and watched an episode or two of Community while we waited to board.

(Seriously, do you guys watch Community? Is it not the best show ever??)

Soon enough we boarded the plane, and I snacked on my second pastry of the morning.



A cranberry orange scone. Perfectly fine. Although I wasn't able to use a snack credit for it, so we clearly weren't in Disney yet.

I also got chips, because I could.



Rock on JetBlue, having your own official snack. I want my own official snack. I think it would have to include whipped cream. And salted caramel. And steak. And cookies.

(Clearly, we're still in the brainstorming phase here.)

Hey, look, an identifiable picture of the sky!



Before long (although any amount of time feels long when it's between me and Disney), we landed in Orlando. I used my best tour-group-leader skills to point us in the direction of SIDE B LEVEL 1, and we headed towards the Magical Express center.

(With our ME documents in hand!)

(No, I'm not tired of pointing that out yet. These were a long time coming! )

Love all the pictures. And, as for Community...why don't I get it? I love 30 Rock? What am I missing? :

And wow...a chocolate croissant before you're even on the plane...IMPRESSIVE!

I'm also a big fan of the super early morning flight. Means almost a full day in Disney!

Yay! You're on your way to Disney!

I laughed when Wingnut had to go get his own breakfast. Most of the fights DH and I have involve me getting mad about sharing food!

JetBlue chips... the first time I flew with them, I thought the flight attendant was offering us "Terrible Chips" Then I read the bag... ohh.... Terra BLUE chips. That makes more sense.

Hahaha I'm pretty terrible at it too! But it's still fun! I've never heard of Bezzerwhizzer, but I'm even worse at trivia games (seriously, no one in their right mind would want to be on my team in Trivial Pursuit). I'd give it a shot though!!
It's actually a lot like Trivial Pursuit, only I haven't read all the cards yet. And you can pick (sort of) your category. We have a different trivia game where you bet on other people's answers to earn "money" and the question was 'What year did Magic Kingdom open?' and no one bet on my answer. Like I wouldn't know that one!

Mmmm, pastries. Au Bon Pain is my traditional airport stop because of their Wall of Baked Goods.

We saw the first season of Community and then stopped for some reason (maybe we got rid of cable?). I love Troy and Abed (in the Morning ). And the Claymation Christmas episode! We keep meaning to catch up (and I guess it's easier now since it's "on break") but haven't gotten there yet!

YAY ME DOCUMENTS!!

I was cracking up when I read the "hunger grumpies"...I get those, too! I actually said to my boyfriend once, "I get really hostile when I'm hungry" and he said, "ya think?"

Logan Airport has an EoS, too, but Logan is like a city in itself, so I'd never find it. There's allegedly one opening IN Boston, though...not so patiently waiting for that!

I love the early morning flights! It's like almost an extra Disney day!

And you're off!

I don't envy your early morning flight... especially since I will be doing the same darn thing (in just 16 days!!!). However, the crazy-early flight is best choice for making the most of each Disney day, isn't it?

Hunger grumpies--that is the best description ever!

Chocolate croissant? Delish! One of my fave breakfast pastries.

I love flying on Jet Blue! Especially because they are willing to fork over more than one snack to you if you ask.

Love that I see your D&B bag in the background.

Hunger grumpies....nice, I get those too. Only I tend to say that I am "hangry." That is a word my sis and I use to describe our feeling by combining the words "hungry" and "angry." Because we are sure cranky when we have empty bellies.

Nice. It would be worth a trip to the airport to visit here occasionally for a 'sort of Disney' fix and some delicious sandwiches.
