Happiest of Fridays, friends! I hope your week went well, and you have lots of fun planned for the weekend ahead. Thank you so much for your kind words about our Kitchen Reveal! I know you have a lot of questions about the materials, what we did, etc…I’m already working on the Before & After Breakdown post, so stay tuned for that!
Our son recently turned 14 #sob and to my surprise, he requested a family staycation in lieu of a party. I was more than happy to oblige, especially since one of my very favorite hotels (and in my opinion, Dallas’ best kept secret) happens to be right up the road from us.
The Westin Stonebriar is like a secret hideaway in the middle of the north Dallas bustle…rolling hills and golf greens, huge lagoon-style pool with full-service bar and grill, and lush accomodations. We spent the weekend slurping back snow cones and burgers by the pool, playing ping-pong and bocce ball, and piling in a big bed to watch movies together. Basically, a blissful two days.
And by family staycation…I mean the whole family! Even Maggie was treated to a heavenly bed and treats!
Even though it was just a weekender, I still wanted to pack smart, and be prepared for the different things we had planned. You know I’m a fan of packing light, and using a traditional carry-on sized rolling bag (see my tips here)…but even that is a little big for just a few days.
In the past, I’ve tossed everything in a large duffle bag…but upon arrival, everything is just that…tossed. Enter my newest traveling companion….the Baggallini Rolling Tote!
Everything folded up neatly in a single compartment, with room to spare, and my laptop, chargers and camera tucked in to the outside compartments.
It seems the older our kids get, the harder it is to carve out uninterrupted time with just our family…making these little weekends even more special. Excuse me while I ugly cry.
Do you have favorite local spots for quick staycations? Well, one of you lucky ducks is going to be packing stylish on your next trip, because Baggallini is giving away a bag of your choice…just enter using the Rafflecopter below! Happy weekend, lovebugs, and good luck!
