Sunset at the Pier
After a very LONG day of driving was happy to be enjoying the sunset at the pier in St, Simons, GA. My friend and I found a place called The Half Shell and we decided to eat there for dinner! Good choice! After eating an entire pound of fresh GA Shrimp as our appetizer. We finally ordered our main course. I think it was a Crab Cake kind of night! I had the Crab Cake BLT with Cheesy Grits. Yes I said Cheesy Grits, those were amazing!

Overall it was a wonderful dinner and I recommend the Grandma’s Tea made with Sweet Tea Vodka!

Show me the SUN! I think I was kept in the Chicago weather for too long! A little sun can go a very long way with me! I am currently staying at The King and Prince resort in St. Simons, GA. I stayed here once before and everything about this cute little island is still the same! Beautiful Ocean views, Family Friendly, Coastal Living. Weather you are looking for a place to stay for a weekend getaway or somewhere to spend those cold winter months away from Old Man Winter this is the place. Located about an hour south of Savannah, GA and about 5 hours from Atlanta, GA. I personally drove from Atlanta and it was a nice drive not a lot of traffic on the road and it can be done in 1 day and get here early enough to have a nice relaxing dinner! Last time I was here I stayed in the historic main building, this time I am in a Villa that is a 2 bedroom, 2 bath suite with a full kitchen, living room and balcony with a great view of the ocean.

The things I look for in a hotel are the small little touches that can make your stay that much more relaxing. Everything from the small little mints they leave on your pillow to having a washer and dryer and a wine bottle opener in the kitchen. You would not believe the hotels I have stayed in over the years that don’t have those things. Sometime I even throw a wine bottle opener into my suit case since I always end up buying one if the hotel doesn’t supply it. Also each room has decorative pieces there for nothing more that pure enjoyment.

Over all this was a pretty clean hotel if you are looking for something right off the highway and just need a place to sleep. Other than that don’t expect to much … I was irritated to find that the TV remote didn’t work. Dead batteries maybe? I was to tired to care at that point and just ended up going to sleep. Also the alarm clock didn’t work. Good thing I had my phone with me. I was also just trying to use it to play some music in the morning while I was jumping in the shower and getting ready.
Like I said, If you are looking for a clean place to crash and get a shower while on the road this place is great. Otherwise spend the extra money – time and check into something a little nicer.

After a LONG day on the road I decided to check into a Drury Inn located in Bowling Green. I forgot all of the funny things you see along the side of the road while driving!
This sure caught my attention!
But wait I am getting ahead of myself! First I have to show you the photo of my car that i think needs a KEY WEST OR BUST bumper sticker! I fit everything in there but the kitchen sink. I even purchased a bike rack so I could bring my favorite bike and cute basket with me. I know I will get a lot of use out of my bike living in Key West since the island is only 4 miles x 2 miles.
Look out for my #KEYWESTORBUST sticker!
Also I have one of the best Moms a girl can ask for! She bought all of my favorite snacks and filled my cooler!
Red Bull, Tea, Baby Bell Cheese, Prosciutto, Celery and Grapes!
Well since I am going to spending so much time in the car I figured I should break out some old Cd’s and sing my way to Key West … Or listen at least! I also downloaded the Audio Book version of Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks! I will say I REALLY do like the book and I have actually had a few times that I was laughing out loud!
I used to LOVE these guys!
Now I am all checked in and ready for bed! And these guys had a great idea for the soap and shampoo in the room!
Good Night! Sleep Tight – No Bed Bugs Here!

I’m MOVING … Well I hope at least! I have been offered a job house sitting for someone in the Florida Keys and I am going to take it … It will be a HUGE move for me since I live outside of Chicago. I am very excited and freaking out at the same time. But I have to just keep telling myself that its all going to workout for the best and you can’t be happy unless you do something to get there. Who doesn’t want to wake up every morning to palm trees possibly in your front yard? I am going to be blogging about my adventures on the road and while in Key West!
Wish me courage … I need that more than luck this week!
Peace, LOVE and Tweeting

And P.S. This is the one that I got to sit in while it was at the Chicago Auto Show!
Roberts Riverwalk Hotel – Detroit
I recently stayed here for a Lions game and after reading all the reviews on Yelp I really wanted to give this hotel some much needed credit. The hotel is located a little outside of the downtown hussle and bussle but it was a quick shuttle ride to the game! The shuttle is also FREE from the hotel. I will warn you make sure you are downstairs waiting for it and plan to have a few loads before you. We did take a cab back to the hotel and it was less than $10. Room was nice and clean, the staff was pleasant and helpful. Overall I would recommend this hotel to others and it was a great value since all we really wanted was a bed to sleep in. I will say don’t bother with the food-bar area downstairs. They seemed to be over worked and nothing like the service we received at the reception desk.
Have to love Foursquare for keeping track of my movement!

A VERY comfy bed!
