While "sheltering in place", drinking my coffee, trying to homeschool the kids, I find myself daydreaming of my happy place. In February, my husband and I were lucky enough to take an adult only trip to Punta Islita. The hotel is apart of Marriott's Autograph Collection Hotel in Guanacaste, Costa Rica. Guanacaste is a special place, it is one of … [Read more...]

Man, I wish I were back on the beach after uploading all of these photos! If you're looking for a nice spot to get away in Florida that isn't too crazy, Marco Island is where it's at. We love it because it's a quick and easy trip to the Ft. Myers airport, which is a totally pleasant and small airport to navigate. Marco Island is pretty much the … [Read more...]

After having spent most of the summer traveling with the family, I am itching for a weekend away with my husband only! I love my kids but we all know it's nice to get a little one-on-one time. Living in Philadelphia, there's a ton of fabulous weekend getaway options but the one I wanted to talk about today is Virginia Beach, VA. It's a 5-hour road … [Read more...]

It's about this time of year that I start looking up new releases and top downloads on iTunes. Once summer hits, we're road-tripping and traveling-fools and I'm always looking for some download entertainment options for my kiddos. This summer we've have flights to Hawaii and back (from the east coast) so I'll definitely need some good movie … [Read more...]

I've got travel on the mind these days as I'm headed down to Orlando and Disney later this week. This Groupon deal hit my inbox and it seemed too good to be true - $5 for one and $8.99 for 2! I'm always hand-writing our name and address on those paper airplane luggage tags that often tear off, so I really don't know why I haven't gotten one of … [Read more...]

Last weekend, I went with 3 friends to The Lodge at Woodloch, an all-inclusive spa resort located in eastern Pennsylvania. It's about a three hour drive from Philadelphia and a two hour drive from Manhattan so the Lodge is an ideal spot for a quick weekend get away for us mid-Atlantic folks. We were there celebrating my bestie's 40th and had a … [Read more...]

From our house, it's just shy of two hours to drive down to Baltimore. My husband especially is familiar with the route; Under Armour (based in Baltimore) is one of his clients and he's there almost once a month. He's been talking about taking the kids to Baltimore for a weekend for ages but somehow it hasn't come together. Until recently, when … [Read more...]

But we were looking to check out something different this summer and since my husband has lots of Marriott points, we booked a 5 night stay at the … [Read more...]
