I might be a bit bias - but my momma is the BESTEST in the entire world and I love no other person in the world like her (even though I am a huge daddy's girl). I wanted to do something for her this weekend, more than dinner and flowers but still keep the budget reasonable and a few weeks ago, in my daily search for hotels (I told you I love them) - I came across the Hyatt Regency in Greenwich, CT. This palatial like hotel had an amazing pre-paid deal for $85/night - BOOKED! and then I rented a car using accumulated gold points - FREE!
If you are like me, you have more than one "mom" in your life - and my godmother, whom I absolutely adore, joined us for the weekend. So for, less than $200, the three of us had a very relaxing weekend, doing nothing but eating, sleeping, looking at the gorgeous homes of Greenwich, and watching HGTV! SCORE!!! (see pics below)
I share this to say - happiness is not always about doing things for you - but moreso, about doing things for others. Of course my mom deserves a 3 week vacation on a yacht, with a butler and a private jet on standby - but until then, a weekend away in a small town with her best friend and daughter was just as GREAT!
For the same price, I would have spent on one Broadway ticket, or two sports tickets, or a new pair of shoes (or two) - I got a deluxe double room with full breakfast buffet and parking for 3 people. Happiness doesn't have to be expensive either!!!
Here are some site that you can check out (that I love) for awesome hotel prices and car rentals!!!
www.jetsetter.com (amazing flash sales on luxury hotels)
-I highly suggest becoming a Gold Member with Hertz - it's FREE! And most importantly, with every rental you rack up points towards free rentals.
I hope you all had a SMARVELOUS weekend, and to all the mother's out there - I APPRECIATE YOU!!!!!
My mom has been instrumental in helping me shape and discover my destiny - it's only right to say THANK YOU!!!
See you next week!
