I'm committed

Today I booked my flight to LA for the West Coast PR Weekend in March! Check out the Fashion District's website – it looks like a fun place to visit with fellow seamstresses.

I used Farecast to monitor the airfare - today it dropped so I bought. You can create a free account and a "farewatch" in which you tell it your destination and the dates and it'll send you daily emails of the current fares, as well as a prediction of whether the lowest price will rise, hold steady, or fall. This is the first time I've used this service so I can't attest to how good its predictive power is. At a minimum though, it's certainly nice to have someone else doing the obsessive searches and comparisons every day for you.

I look forward to meeting some of you in March!

I'm so jealous! I really want to go, but that weekend just doesn't work for me. I will check out Farcast - I had never heard of it before, but it sounds useful.

thanks for the link
I'm going to be able to do the PR at LA thing in February but hopefully we will be moving back to California the end of next year so I will definiately be making the switch from NY shopping to LA shopping!

Yay! I look forward to meeting you in person. I wonder if it'll be cold enough for you to bring that fabulous coat. :-) I've been obsessively checking fare websites but haven't seen it drop yet, thanks for the heads up about farecast.

Farecast... I wish we had such a site in Europe, checking airfares can be so much time consuming. In any case you're a lucky girl, enjoy that week end.
