A Little Getaway

If you follow us on Instagram, you may have seen that Kevin and I snuck away for a last minute getaway to LA.


Kev, using his usual deal finding skills, found last minute (and I mean last minute) tickets to LA Friday night for ~$150/person. We had some Disney tickets we’d won in a charity raffle burning a hole in our pockets, so we packed a bag and headed out.

We spent Saturday at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure. As two old hats with Walt Disney World, Disneyland was an awesome change of pace.

We landed in Dallas at 4:45am this morning, so forgive the quick post. I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Have you ever done a spur of the moment getaway? Where would you go if you could?

If you’re participating in our Photo-A-Day challenge, don’t forget that we’re starting up tomorrow!

    I saw it on Instagram, what an awesome last minute trip! I’ve been checking flight prices to Toronto and DC but no luck. Where does Kevin look, if he doesn’t mind sharing?

      He usually looks at Google flights. I think it’s relatively new, but it will show you the cheapest places to fly for a given date (or for a given destination, it will show a bar graph of the cheapest days). You can narrow by specific countries, airports, and airlines.


      We’ve also signed up for price alerts from American Airlines (who we almost always fly). That’s how we found out about this particular fare sale.
