The Journey to Chicago and Night 1 ~ Tuesday GRL Update by Brandilyn with Giveaway #TeamPrismGRL

PBA_GRL_Update

So I made it to Chicago successfully… eventually.   The day started by me going by my bank for cash, only to discover that the ATMs were down.  So I am traveling cashless.  Luckily Becky had small bills for all the appropriate tips :\  By the time we made the airport our flight was already delayed by about 30 minutes.  By the time we pushed back, we were an hour late.  When we arrived it was almost 2 hours.  Oh the joys of flying.

 

At least I had some good reading (well listening in this case) for the flight.

First people I saw when we got to Baggage Claim were JP Barnaby and William Cooper.  First time I have had the pleasure of meeting William in person.  Great way to start GRL.  Thanks to late planes, traffic, rain, and a quick stop for snackage at a grocery store, the journey to the hotel took a little a little while, but the conversation was good so it was all good.

Got to see PizzyGirl and Diana Copland we walked into the hotel.  Lots of hugs all around.  Also reconnected with AE Via, Sandrine Gasq-Dion, and a few others who escape me at the moment.  Met a few people as well.  I will admit it is all a bit of a blur.

We got all checked in and settled into our room just in time for Brandon Witt to get to the hotel.  All I have to say is he gives excellent hugs!  We headed to dinner and I think we closed the place down.  The food was okay, but the company was awesome!

Unfortunately, my night ended shortly there after.  Between and early morning, travel exhaustion, and a headache, I called it a night.  There was a rousing game of Cards against Humanity that I wish I had been up for… alas, I am sure it won’t be the last.  

On my stalker list for today Lirtle Grafton (aka AD), Christine, Andrew Q Gordon, and Catherine Dare.

hmm… Ken Murphy just walked by on his way to the gym… hehe

Much Love and see you Tomorrow!

  1. I’m sorry the trip there wasn’t the best, but glad that things started off well in Chicago. Hope today is even better. I can’t wait for more pictures and posts!

  2. Glad to hear that you made it to GRL safely. Have a fabulous day to day. And since we cant be there with you, please take LOTS of pictures

  3. Flight delays I am used to – but ATMs being down – that is adding insult to injury. Now that you have the hard part of traveling over, I hope you can focus on having a great time. Thanks for sharing with those of us who don’t get to attend!
