Well since it's a 5 gallon, I would carry a gallon of the tank water along with the tank so you can run the filter in the bucket once you get to her place :)
If you are transporting plants, simply drain the tank completely and lay a piece of saran wrap securely over the plants (not the tank!). This will keep the plants hydrated :) When you are filling the tank, leave the saran wrap in the tank and slowwwwwly pour the water in. The saran wrap will prevent the incoming water from messing up your substrate!
Feel free to post you progress! I would love to be able to help you to set up your big surprise in anyway i can! ^_^
edit: Since you are doing some fast growing plants you may not even see a cycle! To start off you will need good 6500k lighting for the plants :) this is usually a cfl or a flourescent T8/T5 strip.
Eventually when you get the betta, you will need a heater :D
