Dallas or bust
Guess who gets to take a spontaneous trip to Dallas this weekend to visit a very dear friend? (courtesy of an airline credit expiring on Tuesday.**)
Yep, this girl does! 🙂
It’s been a little while since I’ve flown, and even longer time packing for such a short trip, so I had to have a review of what is and isn’t allowed in a carry-on. While I appreciate the TSA taking the time to list all weaponry, types of lighter fluid, sports equipment, etc. that are and aren’t allowed, let’s get down to the really important stuff.
What about mascara?
And, while I’m at it, what about crochet needles?
Life or death questions here, people! Pshhh, weaponry…
For those on the edge of their seats waiting for the answers, they are “Yes!” to both.
*insert my happy dance here*
Mascara is considered a liquid/gel, so… as long as it’s not bigger than the allowed 3.4 fluid ounces in such category, and as long as it’s in a quart-size Ziploc bag, ready to be pulled out for inspection, yes, you can bring it in your carry-on. Along with the rest of your make-up, btw; see link below.
Crochet (and knitting) needles are also allowed. Possibly not your scissors, though; see link below.
Whether it’s ready or not, Dallas (and Mandi) here I come!
**If you’re flying Southwest, you have exactly a year after date-of-purchase to USE your credit. Not purchase w/ it, not even start your trip on that day. It all must be USED by the expiration date, or you simply lose it.
