Beach Getaways: Sanibel & Captiva Islands

While I absolutely love the beach, I am not one of those people who can sit on the beach for hours on end and not get bored. That’s why I was so excited when my friend invited a few of us to her parent’s house on Sanibel Island two years ago. After some quick research, I… Continue reading Beach Getaways: Sanibel & Captiva Islands

Hilton Grand Vacation Offer: Is it Worth It?

If you’re a loyal Hilton customer, chances are at least once when you’ve called about a reservation you’ve been offered 500 points for listening to an offer by Hilton Grand Vacations. In late February after a long day at work, I called to extend a hotel stay in Austin and was selected to receive this offer.… Continue reading Hilton Grand Vacation Offer: Is it Worth It?

The Road Taken: Highlights from our Spring Break Road Trip to the South

If you have been keeping up with the blog, you are probably very up to date on our road trip to Charleston, Savannah, & Myrtle Beach last week. While the entire trip was amazing, there were definitely some parts that we would do over in a heart beat, others that seeing once was enough but we’d… Continue reading The Road Taken: Highlights from our Spring Break Road Trip to the South

Soirée Goes South: Day 7

It’s so bittersweet, the last day of our vacation has already come and gone. It’s been an amazing week and we can’t wait to come back again (hopefully very soon, hint hint Mom & Dad). We once again chose to sleep in as in we made it until about 8:30am before getting up to head to our… Continue reading Soirée Goes South: Day 7

Soirée Goes South: Day 6

Going non-stop for five days straight starts to wear on you, so today we decided to let ourselves sleep in a bit, which in our case meant waking up about the same time just without an alarm. After taking our time to get ready and enjoy our complimentary breakfast, we decided it would be worthwhile… Continue reading Soirée Goes South: Day 6

Soirée Goes South: Day 5

Day 5 started off early again because really, what is sleeping in? We actually did have to get a jumpstart on the day to make sure we had enough time to see a plantation and get to Savannah before dinner. Our first stop on the agenda was Boone Hall Plantation, which if you’ve been keeping… Continue reading Soirée Goes South: Day 5

Soirée Goes South: Day 4

It’s really hard to believe we are done (for now) with our time in Charleston and are getting ready to head to Savannah in the morning. Charleston is truly an incredible city that had us falling in love with everything we saw, ate and experienced from the moment we stepped out into the warm southern air.… Continue reading Soirée Goes South: Day 4

Soirée Goes South: Day 3

We decided we would try and sleep in after all of our driving the last few days. And by sleep in, I mean we woke up at 7:30am totally still exhuasted from our adventures from Day 2. The only thing keeping us from sleeping in a little longer was the thought of the amazing breakfast awaiting… Continue reading Soirée Goes South: Day 3

Soirée Goes South: Day 2

We woke up early in Summerville so we could take the scenic route to Charleston. Lucky for us, our hotel had a free breakfast including eggs, biscuits, waffles and coffee. After grabbing a quick bite, we took Route 61 to Charleston in order to catch a glimpse of some of the historic plantations along the way.… Continue reading Soirée Goes South: Day 2

Soirée Goes South: Day 1

Our trip started bright and early at 5:30am with a stop at Wawa for breakfast sandwiches and coffee for me and chai tea for Kate. The 8 hour drive to our lunch stop surprisingly wasn’t too bad considering neither of us had ever driven in a car that long. We stopped at Fuller’s BBQ (right… Continue reading Soirée Goes South: Day 1
