Good afternoon and I hope you had a tremendous weekend! In what seems like the first time in a long time, my wife and I just sat outside and took in the gorgeous weather for a little bit on Saturday. It is times like that that really make me dread traveling since we have such a beautiful view, wonderful weather, and great space for the kids. 🙂 But, the travel bug does come along and bite from time to time anyway!

Miles, Points, and Deals

And that is it for last week! Hope you are off to a great start of the week and that you have a good one!

Working for New Elite Status

I am working on running the numbers on a new status (actually, it will end up as 4 status levels) that I may want to get soon. I think I can do it and keep the out-of-pocket costs quite reasonable, considering what I will get in exchange. Hopefully I will have it all figured out soon and can do a writeup on it then!
