Thankfully, Dalaney is headed out to Utah this weekend (planned ahead of our 30-days of travel) to do two BIG events. And during this week I've received two inquires about pending events during the time that he'll be visiting. Miraclessssss!!! Never, ever have we done four events in one week. Yessssss, I, Hannah Mecham, am a believer!!!
So, we're happy campers (cross your fingers that the 2 events follow through) and are looking forward to the ginormous vacay.
ps. Did you know ginormous is a legitimate word in spellcheck?

2. At least one day at Disney World. Dalaney's never been. We're considering attending a Timeshare presentation to score tickets.
3. Smithsonian, White House, Holocaust museum. ect.
4. Manhattan LDS temple.
5. Eat all the delicious food in Chicago that Dalaney raves about.
6. ELLEN SHOW. I requested tickets online but never heard from the show reps. Does anyone know how hard it is to get in standby?
7. Statue of Liberty. We didn't have time during our 15 hour trip.
8. Lay on the beach all day on an exotic island (location pending).
9. Visit Mechams, Lauren, Crystal, Dani, Hannah, ect. in Utah.
10. Crash MTV VMAs on Sept. 12th and go star sighting.

Since purchasing our AYCJ passes, I’ve decided to watch Groupon for discounted restaurant, entertainment, ect. gift certificates in all the cities we plan on visiting.
Have you ever used Groupon? You never know what you are going to find, so if you know your itinerary check it out and plan ahead!
Today, NYC's groupon caught my eye:
$15 for one of three boat tours (Skyline, twilight, or historical) with NY Waterway Tours, $26 valueThe night tour sounds majestic, but after buying two passes I think it is still exceeds our budget. I'm going to continue watching daily though so we can eat and play cheaper.
Join here so they’ll know I referred you!
After graduating from BYU in April, we both have determined that our degrees (him: political science and spanish, me: print journalism) are seemingly useless. So, our plans include venturing back to school, most likely in January.
In June we made the move from Provo, UT to my hometown, Hattiesburg, Mississippi, to reside behind my parents home and save money. To earn money, I work at my dad's school uniform store, and Dalaney recently built a second photobooth which we rent out. We are also avid salvage shoppers and sale items on Amazon & eBay. Although we haven't saved as much money as we ideally anticipated, we are going to take advantage of this time in our lives and travel!!!
Follow us in our upcoming wild adventures :)
I exclaimed, "Oh, Dalaney, we have to go to New York City!! This is a once in a lifetime opportunity!!!! Never again can we go there for so cheap!!!!!!"
And now, Jet Blue has done it again.
"Oh, Dalaney!! PLEASEEEEEEEEE. We have to buy All-You-Can-Jet passes!!! This is a once in a lifetime opportunity."
So now, three months later, we're planning a second trip to New York City.

Our itinerary is going to look something like this (yet in no particular order...)
Chicago (I'll finally get to see his old mission stomping ground!)
Washington DC (neither of us have ever been...)
SLC (I'm actually dying to visit!!!)
San Juan, PR
If you have any ideas about what we should do in any of the above cities, please share!! Oh, and buy your pass and come escape with us.
ps. I've already made Dalaney promise me that we can attend another taping of Let's Make a Deal (now filmed in LA). Pray we win some $$ to support our lifestyle!
