Hampton Inn Bartlesville, Oklahoma

October 12, 2017
The Hampton Inn Bartlesville, Oklahoma ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

Let’s just say we arrived at the Bartlesville, Oklahoma Hampton Inn skirting into the parking lot on two wheels thankful to finally arrive around 1:00 AM!  I strategically planned our two-week summer road trip so that I would never have to drive at night.  That planned got thrown out the window when we lost a day in Colorado Springs waiting (not patiently) for our rental van to be replaced. Earlier that day we had a great (yet terrifying) trip to…

Hampton Inn & Suites Germantown, TN

Hampton Inn & Suites Germantown, TN

On our last night of the summer road trip we stayed in Germantown, Tennessee.  Germantown is right outside of Memphis, we had dinner at Blues City Cafe and then headed towards Germantown. The hotel had just opened about three weeks prior to our arrival in July of 2017.  By far, this was the nicest Hampton Inn and Suites that I have stayed in. The exterior is brick which is a refreshing change from the stucco design on most hotels.  The…

Pikes Peak

Pikes Peak

One of the highlights of our road trip this summer was Pikes Peak.  My kids and I all had something in particular that the road trip was built around and Pikes Peak was the hot ticket item for my son. He has been talking about Pikes Peak forever because he loves cars and there is an incredible race that takes place at Pikes Peak.  It is unbelievable that cars race up this mountain but they do. It is known as…

The Grand Canyon – Desert View – East Entrance

September 18, 2017
Grand Canyon Desert View

We recently visited the wonderful city of Flagstaff, Arizona while on a cross-country road trip.  We got an early start on a Sunday morning and headed north to the Grand Canyon. We decided to take the scenic route on 89N through the Coconino Forest.  Once you arrive in the town of Cameron you turn towards the Grand Canyon on AZ-64.  I believe there was a gas station in Cameron and a few stores but once you turn on AZ-64 there…

Pioneer Woman’s Bakery at the Mercantile

September 6, 2017
Pioneer Woman Mercantile

Kerry and I visited the mercantile this summer and it was amazing!  That’s putting in mildly!  We enjoyed breakfast and happened to meet the cowboys!  After we shopped and ate we visited the bakery upstairs! First of all upstairs is absolutely beautiful.  The furnishings are lovely with so many beautiful sitting areas.  The assortment of chairs, sofas and rugs are on point. The bakery line can get long but it was worth it.  There is a nice assortment of choices.…

Blue Waters Resort & Spa Antigua

Blue Waters Resort & Spa Antigua

In August, I was invited to Antigua and Barbuda by the Tourism Board to spend five days on the Island to experience some of the resorts and activities firsthand to help me further sell Antigua to my clients. I must say, I fell in love with Antigua. I had been there once before a few years back on a cruise stop, and truthfully don’t remember much about my day there.  I know we were with friends and we toured the…

Breakfast at Pioneer Woman’s Mercantile

August 31, 2017
Pioneer Woman Mercantile

Yesterday I wrote about our visit to the mercantile and shared all of the wonderful pictures.  Before we shopped we actually had breakfast at the merc. There was a small line outside but it moved quickly.  There were tents for shade and benches if needed. The building is absolutely beautiful down to the very last detail.  The menu is delightful.  It was hard to narrow down what we wanted but we managed. The dishes that they served breakfast on were…

Kerry and I finally made it to see the Pioneer Woman’s Mercantile this summer!  We have been talking about visiting it since it opened last year.  I built my summer road trip to go through Oklahoma specifically to go to the mercantile!  Can you say slightly obsessed? I’m so glad we went because it was everything I wanted it to be plus some more and a cherry on top! We had the most wonderful breakfast there also and even met…

DoubleTree by Hilton in Flagstaff, Arizona

August 16, 2017
Flagstaff, Arizona

I’m still writing about our summer road trip for a few reasons.  One, because it was awesome.  Two, because I wish I was still on the road trip! I could live on the road floating from one place to another and never having a “home”. That being said, I sure wouldn’t mind spending a great portion of time in Flagstaff.  I’ve been there previously and I’ve loved it. I couldn’t wait to visit again so that I could show my…
