HEB Giftcard Giveaway Winner

Anonymous said...

We have a tradition of hiding the easter eggs, but it was only last year my children were smart enough to tell me to count them so we know we got them all (you don't wanna know the smell we endured the years prior)
Thanks Pat Ravenscraft

That made me laugh, we have found eggs months later....ewwww

Are You Ready For a Retreat?

I was so glad the girls and I had a chance to stay at and review the Country Inns & Suites 1, 2, Freee! promotion earlier this month. Even though we didn't travel far it was nice to get away and take a break from everyday life for three nights.

I know with the economy many families are putting vacations on the back burner, but with special promotions like the 1, 2, Freee! program you don't have to skip out on the family fun. Even if you opt to stay at a location close to you, by getting the third night FREE you have extra money for some local entertainment or gas money for your road trip.

One of the features we loved the best was the indoor pool. Our neighborhood does not have a pool and even if it did, it will be months before it is open. With the indoor pool the girls didn't have to worry about the frigid outdoor temperatures and could just hang out and have fun.

We also enjoyed the breakfast that is included with your stay at Country Inns & Suites. That can be a real budget breaker when on vacation and you have to eat out all the time costing anywhere from $4 per person on up. We all had full, hearty breakfasts each morning at no additional cost. And when we did go out for lunch or dinner we could bring leftovers back to the room and put them in the fridge and warm them up in the microwave that is included in all the rooms.

Country Inns & Suites also has a goldpoints plus program where you can earn more FREE nights. Be sure to take advantage of the 1, 2, Freee! promotion by May 15th to get your third night free.

Vacation Update

We are wrapping up the end of our first full day at Country Inns & Suites with their “1,2, Freee!” promotion.

The day started out with a huge choice for a hot or cold breakfast. I opted for the egg and sausage bagel with yogurt while the kids had cereal with fresh fruit, warm biscuits with jam and fresh baked muffins.

Our hotel is just two exits from the Tanger Outlet mall in San Marcos so of course we had to spend the bulk of the day there. A word of advice, if you are going to spend at least $125 there between any of the shops you are better off buying gift cards, because if you do you will get a $10 bonus for each $125 you buy. You will have the extra money to spend anyway by getting your third night free at Country Inns.

One of the nice things about our Country Inns & Suites is that is has an indoor pool. The girls are spending tons of time there since it is still too cold to swim at home.

I think tomorrow we will go to either Wonder World or Sea World. Sea World San Antonio has a promotion where if you buy a one day pass you can go back the rest of the year at no additional charge. That is a huge savings off of their normal annual pass.

1, 2, Freee!

The girls and I are gearing up for a pre-spring break trip to San Marcos. It is all part of a promotion by Country Inns & Suites called “1, 2, Freee!” where you stay 2 nights and get the third night FREE!

We have been to several other locations in the past and one thing I love is that a hot breakfast is included in the cost of your stay. I hate having to shell out another $20-30 for breakfast out while staying at other hotels.

In addition to the hot breakfast they have a swimming pool, fresh cookies, workout facility, high-speed internet access and a read it & return lending library. Amenities may vary by location.

You can check out Country Inns on facebook and twitter too.
