To finish up my series on our most recent ski trip to the Beaver Creek area of Colorado, I wanted to cover the really good stuff…family friendly winter activities! You can read my reviews of the Westin Beaver Creek and the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek below, but you don’t go to Colorado in the winter to sit in a hotel. You go to play in the snow, and here is… Read the Rest.
Another Post from The Man– Often when Mommy Points is out of town for work, I get the breathtaking opportunity to spend quality time with my daughter. It may seem patronizingly cliche, but every moment she and I spend together, just my child and I, is a blessing. No matter how miserable of a day I’ve had, if we get to play and laugh together, it improves. MP left… Read the Rest.
I wasn’t sure if this was info that was really relevant to post or not, but I figured if I am going to post about things such as my ears not popping after my flight (which, by the way, still have not popped after almost two weeks and three more flights!), then I would be remiss to not introduce you to my new boss. I’m really very fortunate to work… Read the Rest.
You ever had one of those weeks? You know the kind – three different required trips to three different cities in five days….and that was just my schedule. My husband also had a two-day work trip as well. While this may sound like a light week to some hardened road warriors, I can say without a doubt that having two working parents torn in different directions at the same time,… Read the Rest.
We last saw Little C’s grandparents (my husband’s parents) in November when we went to Kansas City for the weekend. Since we don’t like to go longer than three months without our toddler seeing them, February meant it was time for a visit! In fact, one of their Christmas presents from us was tickets to fly down for the weekend. I made these reservations a long time ago using British… Read the Rest.
Here is the next post in my mini-series about our adventures taking our daughter to Colorado. This post should be a good one if you plan to travel with a toddler, because that is what it is all about. It covers many of the logistics of getting to Colorado and back with her. Additionally, a chunk of this post will be about the United Club in Terminal E in Houston,… Read the Rest.
Tonight’s post is playing catch-up with lots of different things going on in the miles and points community. I actually love it when there is too much going on to pick any one topic – it means things are “exciting”. At least for points/travel junkies like me…. Okay, here is what caught my attention today. First, the official host hotel for the Chicago Seminars, Holiday Inn Elk Grove Village, is now… Read the Rest.
One of the realities of being a parent is that from time to time, you are going to have a sick kid on your hands. Furthermore, occasionally you are going to have a really sick kid on your hands. If you are a parent that travels a significant amount for work (or I guess for fun, for that matter), then there are going to be times when you are on… Read the Rest.
First, I hope those of you who celebrate Christmas had a fantastic day today. I know that my daughter had a fantastic Christmas, though it is fair to say that between her birthday (right before Christmas) and Christmas itself she has enough toys to last at least a few years. She is a very fortunate little one. Her red kitchen from Santa was one of the stand-outs of the day. … Read the Rest.
I know it seems sacrilegious for a self-proclaimed point-a-holic to spend $23,000 on a flight that earned zero miles, but almost two years ago we did just that. I’ve been waiting for a while to tell this story, and I think tonight is the right time. Apologies in advance for the length, it is just that kind of story. Two years ago today we celebrated the birth of our baby,… Read the Rest.
