South Beach Numero Dos

For years, we continued to tell Eric and Colleen that they had to make a trip to South Beach but it went through one ear and out the other. And when they finally decided to listen and book it this year, Eric got a hold of Sean to see if we would book the trip with them. Sean told him that we wouldn't be able to make it because he was not sure how his new work schedule was going to be when he got back from Texas. Of course I was disappointed that I would not be able to travel with Colleen but I understood and did not make a big stink about it.

Sean being the sneaky amazing husband that he is booked the trip without my knowledge and when I went to visit him in San Antonio he presented me with a card. Inside the card was our hotel and flight confirmation. To say I was surprised and overwhelmed with happiness does not completely describe it. Let's just say I said, "Are you serious?" a million times (just like when he proposed, now that I think of it) and then gave him the tightest hug he had probably ever been given in his life.

We stayed at the National Hotel which I highly recommend! We rented a car and to find parking in South Beach is hard so we had to park our car (you have to use their valet service) at the hotel which is $40 a day. That was the only thing I didn't really care about regarding the hotel.

Besides that, the hotel is beautiful and the service is good. Almost too good. At one point it was like, "It's okay, I have two hands, I can carry this bag with alcohol up to my room myself." And please forgive me, I completely forgot to take pictures of our room and the front of the hotel.

I thought I had when we checked in (because obviously that is when it is the neatest) but I did not. Boo to me.

And because looking at pictures of a hotel isn't always the most fun, I'll try to make up for it with my next post.

I hope you're all having great weeks but Friday can't get here soon enough!
