California here we come part 2

The other day I mentioned that our 16th wedding anniversary is coming up and it just happens to fall during our upcoming trip to CA.

When we realized that, we started saving up and planning to spend that night in the same hotel that we honeymooned in.

Because that would be so romantic!

But, we've changed our minds....

We'd rather use the money to do fun things with our kids on the trip. (It's beastly expensive to stay there now and not all the reviews I read were good)

And so, we are going to do something much cheaper and surely more daring and definitely not as romantic. We are going to place a bid on Priceline.com. Has anyone tried that? This will be our first time. You put in the location you want to stay, the star rating you want it to have and the amount you want to pay. If they take your offer, you get charged right away and then they tell you where you are staying. Sounds adventurous! We'll see how it goes....

I have no doubt that we will have a fun and romantic time anywhere we stay.

If we are feeling sentimental then....

We may drive by our honeymoon hotel....

We may even go inside and ride the glass elevator and look at the view of the city....

We may walk past our room and reminisce about the last time we were there...

And when we leave, we will be really glad that this time we are driving a rental car. Because it really is embarrassing to have a valet have to jump start your car before bringing it back to you. ; )

Bless his heart! I hope we gave him a good tip!


This picture was taken after the wedding as a joke, but it proved to be prophetic! Too funny!

We haven't done Priceline but I'll be interested to hear about your experiences with it.
