My Amazing Florida Vacation! Post #2 – My First Time Eating Chick-Fil-A!

Adventures (1).jpg

Hey, everyone!! 😃

I hope you’re having an awesome day! Thanks for stopping by for another post about my Amazing Florida Vacation! I’m super excited to share my first experience at the popular restaurant known as ‘Chick-Fil-A!’ I know a lot of you are big fans of the place, and I heard for a long time just how incredible it was, so I know I had to go.

This post is dedicated to my awesome Floridian cousin, Matt! Thanks for taking me out for my first Chick-Fil-A experience! The food was SO good, especially after travelling all day and hardly eating at all.


                        ⬇️⬇️ Chick-Fil-A! ⬇️⬇️

chick.pngThe outside of the restaurant! It was so good to see Palm Trees Again. 🙂 🌴

chick2.pngOh, the FROSTED LEMONADE!! 🍋 I wasn’t expecting anything special, but it was the best drink I have had in a LONG time! If you go to Chick-Fil-A, order one! 

chick3.pngSorry, it’s kinda blurry :/ The Deluxe Chicken Sandwich! SO GOOD!!!! 😋

chick4.pngYes, and you NEEEEED to try the Waffle Fries! Better than I could have imagined!

chick5.pngMmmmmm……No Ketchup needed. Just Chick-Fil-A Sauce. They also have some other really great tasting sauces and dressings you should try!


             ⬇️⬇️ It was so tasty, I went to Chick-Fil-A the next day for lunch ⬇️⬇️

chick6.pngThe Spicy Deluxe Sandwich! It was very good! 😋

chick7.pngYes, the Waffle Fries again!!

NOW, EXCITING NEWS FOR ALL CANADIANS!!!!! 🇨🇦 CHICK-FIL-A IS COMING TO CANADA!!! 🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦 There are already 15 Restaurants planned for Toronto, ON! The first one opens in 2019!!

Chick-Fil-A was an incredible experience! The food was super tasty and the workers are really friendly. I’m so excited that they are coming to Canada!

One thing that surprised me was how much free food they give away! This may be more popular to do in the US than in Canada, or it may just be Chick-Fil-A. For instance, they have a day once a year where if you dress up as a cow and go to one of their restaurants, they will give you your meal for FREE!! That’s unheard of where I am. And, when I took my cousin out for Chick-Fil-A (the second time I went) my receipt said that if I complete a survey online, I would get a free Chicken Sandwich! Free food offers like that I never knew existed!

       Anyway, thanks so much for reading today’s post! 😃                                                                                                                                              I’d really love to hear from you! 💬

My Amazing Florida Vacation! Post #1 – My Experience Flying!


Hey, everyone!! 🙂

Now I know you have a lot of questions and are wondering, ‘Am I actually reading a new post on Total Bradness?’ Has his schedule cleared up? How could he afford to take a vacation to Florida?

Well, YES, this is actually a new post you are reading! I am really happy to be publishing a new post after SO long. My schedule is just as busy, but I can’t stop publishing posts for such a long time or not update you on some exciting new things happening in my life! I really couldn’t afford (timewise) the vacation I took to Florida, but my tickets were booked far in advance.

I had a lot of fun on the trip and accomplished a lot of things I wanted to do on it, so I have decided to make a couple different posts about my trip! My first one is going to be about my first experience… FLYING!! I have to say it was an AMAZING experience, and wanted to share with Y’All what it was like!

My first flight left from the Buffalo Niagara International Airport. The reason I didn’t fly out of Ontario was because it was far more expensive than flying out of the US.generateImage.jpg

I first flew with the airline… DELTA.med_gallery_76891_1651_47110.jpeg

They had complimentary snacks and drinks, I had a snack mix and soda.snack.png

Here are some pictures from the plane. They aren’t the best, but I thought they were pretty cool. 🙂




We had a stopover at the worlds BIGGEST and worlds BUSIEST airport, the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta, GA.Hartsfield-Jackson.jpg

Our next flight landed at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in Fort Lauderdale, Florida!7391d8c753cd9a2d59555a162172e3ec.png

On my way home, I flew the airline: JetBlueJetBlue-Plane-e1510351724646.jpg

They also had complimentary snacks and drinks:                                                                          

 compl1.png compl2




Flying is SO much fun! I did stress a bit before I left about whether the flight or not would hurt my ears, or whether it’s hard to breath when you fly, etc. The first flight my ears hurt a little bit, but it was fine. The other two didn’t bother me much. Just swallow when you take off the ground. It can be a little hard to a couple times, but that should keep your ears from hurting the whole time. It is so strange, though. Even yawning can change how your ears feel. Anyway, flying is a breeze!! 😉 😉 And SO much fun!

I really liked flying with Delta Airlines. They are very professional and their service is great. The food was good, and the seats were comfortable. Most planes now have entertainment screens with games, movies, a live map of the flight, etc. My first plane didn’t have one, but my second one after the stopover did! It helps kill time! I watched some of the Minions movie:



JetBlue was also a great airline to fly on. Once again, they had complimentary food and drinks and the seats comfortable. The flight attendants were friendly, and the flight went well. They also had entertainment screens to enjoy!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               I love this picture from the plane!lo.png


I recommend both airlines if you are looking to fly anytime soon! 🙂


Well, that about wraps things up! It was so good to write another post up. I have really missed Y’All! I’m still really busy, so your prayers are appreciated! Thanks so much for taking the time to read, and sticking around during this busy time in my life. You mean so much to me!

WARNING: Operation – Overload: An Update on Blogging, Life, and Work 🙈

The Ginsbergs.jpg

Hello, everyone!

Oh, my. Where to start…

First of all, I’m SO very sorry that I have not been posting as much lately. I should have informed Y’All about what is all going on in my life right now. Let’s just say, I am under ENORMOUS pressure.

#1 – I am trying to get my G1 License

#2 – I am working Monday through Friday from 7AM-5PM

#3 – I still have to finish Science, Geography, French, and Logic this year!!

AHHHHHH!!!!!!! I am going insane Right Now. Trying to do all these things at once is so hard, and fitting blogging into all of that is even harder. I still have loads of school, am working most of the week ALL DAY, and am studying for my license!

Now, I still hope to post here on ‘Total Bradness,’ but for a while not quite as often as I was. I really hope that Y’All can understand my extremely stressful time.

It would mean a lot if you still continued to support me and stick around even though my posts won’t be quite as frequent for a bit. You support means so much, and this blog and all you followers mean a lot to me.

Thanks for your kind understanding. Your prayers are appreciated. 😃🙏
