My Airport Cheat Sheet

I have something to share with you.

I have driven to DFW airport more times than I want to admit over the past 7 years. And once I figured out the airport, I always parked in the same parking section no matter what. It was easier for me to remember and I always found a spot regardless of the time of day.

imageBut, on the off chance that I am running late OR I think American will fly in AND out of the same terminal(not usually the case), I needed to make sure I could park in a terminal with Pre-Check.

And that is why I created a cheat sheet for my car. It stays in the console with bubblegum, spare sunglasses and an extra USB cord and I can take a quick look after I hit the airport if I choose to park in a different section.

Now I can still get through security quickly as long as I can find a spot!

Are you global?

I have something to share with you!

globalI travel a lot for work.  A majority of my trips are overnights and that makes it easier for everyone in the family.  I take the first flight out and one of the later flights home the next day.  What is the best part of my travels, taking restaurants out of the running?  TSA pre-check.  I get through security in a matter of minutes AND everything stays in my bag.  No undressing, unpacking, redressing and re-packing.  If I wear heels, that may be the only thing that I take off.  After a few years of this convenience and being able to bring my daughter through Pre-check, I “recommended” my husband get it too.  So we took it one step further- we both signed up for Global Entry.  My fee was comped with my corporate Amex Platinum card so we only had to pay for my husband and my daughter. Worth it?  YES.  Now when we travel as a family, domestic or international, we can get through security quickly.  Plus, being in Dallas, Mexico is a quick trip and we all know how long the line is at Customs to get back into the states, especially with kids!
