Why We Loved Our Summer Staycation at The Woodlands Resort

Heart the Woodlands Resort

On the other hand I am really looking forward to a routine schedule and some quite time during the day to get some work done.  But, before we say goodbye to summer we decided to have one final hurrah and enjoy a family summer staycation at The Woodlands Resort. Sometimes staying close to home is a … [Continue reading...]

How to Keep White Towels White and Fresh-Smelling

How to Keep White Towels White and Fresh Smelling

There is nothing like wrapping yourself in a fresh-smelling, fluffy white towel.  That's probably one of my favorite things about traveling and staying in luxury hotels.  When we moved into our new house, I decided that I wanted to recreate that same luxury feel in our guest bathroom. White towels are the perfect crisp, clean accessory to any suite or guest bathroom.  But keeping them crisp and clean isn't always easy. Unfortunately, after a while, all white towels can become slightly … [Continue reading...]

Summer just wouldn't be complete with out a trip down memory lane.  Who else remembers enjoying the iconic rocket shaped red, white and blue summer treats?  As kids we rarely enjoyed a treat from the ice cream truck, but when we did I loved getting a Bomb Pop.  So before the summer ends I thought it would be a great idea to celebrate with a special treat.
