Traveling in Style

If you know me well you know that I like everything thats different. When I travel this is no exception... I LOVE a good deal but one of my biggest wants when we travel is to book a unique hotel room. Let's take a trip down memory lane and look at some of my past travels and unique hotel rooms...

Hotel Room #1 
Las Vegas - The PINK Room

Hotel Room #2
San Diego - We booked this room for the view

Hotel Room #3
Las Vegas - The Fancy Room

Hotel Room #4
Monterey - Location Location Location

Hotel Room #5
New York - Scored an AMAZING deal paying less than a regular room rate but got the Penthouse

Hotel Room #6
Las Vegas - The Bachlorette Party Suite

Hotel Room #7
Aruba - The Honeymoon Suite

Hotel Room #8
Santa Cruz - Valentines Suite (FREE!)

Hotel Room #9
Boston - My Favorite

I am aware the hotel room is usually just the room you sleep in during your vacation but I cannot help myself. Although I always make sure to get a great deal!

Back to My Roots

In May I had planned to take a trip home to SURPRISE both my parents for their 60th Birthdays! It was probably the best trip ever. (Minus the fact that Joe could not join me) I had to go through months of secrets and scheming to make this happen.

Keep in mind that mom came to visit twice after I had booked the trip and I think I almost split the beans at least once during her visit.

The first day in town me, my co-worker, and my mother enjoyed breakfast in Capitola. All the while my father was still unaware of my whereabouts. ;)

That night I walked into my dads 60th Birthday party and surprised him.

Do I look happy to be with my Daddy on his 60th? Probably the best trip I will ever take.

The next day to celebrate my mothers 60th birthday she had some requests. These requests included...

Zip-lining in Santa Cruz (Yes, my mother is afraid of heights)

Well I thought she was...

And of course her daughter is scared of NOTHING... ;) I'm kidding!

"Anything you can do I can do better!"

From there we hopped in the car and headed to San Francisco to cruise around town in our rented bug!

Such a perfect 60th Birthday picture!

Ohh... by the way... my Mom also celebrated her 60th by doing something else...

Thank you for being patient with me. The way life has been this past month left me little to no time for blogging. I am currently taking a condensed Biology course for six weeks and actually finished my assignments early to be able to update you on the past month! Check back soon for some exciting posts. :)
