More on Our stay at Wyndham Grand Orlando Resort Bonnet Creek

Hi there!  We are nearing the end of the week (thank goodness!).  It has been a busy one for us.  Andi had her open house for pre school on Monday.  She loved the classroom and the teacher (yay!).  Yesterday was her first official day.  She went from nine to noon.  She did great!  Momma… not so much.  Andi ran right in and started playing with a doll house in the back of the room.  She didn’t even look back at us.  I can’t believe my little girl is in school!!  This is craziness!

I was going through photos from our family trip to Disney World and wanted to share these that we took at Wyndham Grand Orlando Resort Bonnet Creek.

We enjoyed breakfast at Tesoro Cove both mornings that we were there.  It is one of their on property restaurants that serves an amazing breakfast. There was a wide variety to choose from on the American-style buffet, including made to order eggs, pancakes and waffles!  Andi was most pleased with the chocolate milk and bananas. 

I loved the design of the restaurant.   It was an open plan overlooking the pool with floor to ceiling windows.  The lighting was perfect for photos and there were bold pops of color throughout the room. 

We came up with a fun game during our stay.  Whenever we would press the button for an elevator, (there were four) we each took a guess at which one would open for us.  Andi was pretty good and got it right almost every time we played!

On our second night, we went to Epcot to ride the Frozen ride.  We had a Fastpass (thank goodness).  We stayed for the fireworks which are a must see if you get a chance to watch them and haven’t already.  We made our way back to the hotel and there was a lovely surprise delivered to the room just for Andi… a birthday cake!!  When making the reservation arraignments, they had asked for Andi’s age for breakfast menu purposes.  I told them she was turning 2 on the 19th, which was 4 days after our stay at the Wyndham.  It was so sweet and extremely thoughtful that they sent a cake an a personalized birthday card during her birthday trip to Disney.  They really went above and beyond and I cannot say enough great things about our stay!  As you can see from the photos, she was over the moon with her cake.  She had us sing “happy birthday” at least 10 times while she ate it.

We had an amazing time and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Wyndham Grand Orlando Resort Bonnet Creek. They went above and beyond.

Our stay at Wyndham Grand Orlando Resort Bonnet Creek

Hi everyone!  What a fun week we had with Andi!!  If you have been following along on my Instagram, you saw that we were at Disney World for a few days.  It was her early birthday present as she is turning 2 *sniffle* this Saturday.  I was thrilled when Wyndham Grand Orlando Resort Bonnet Creek agreed to do a collaboration with me during our stay in Orlando.  We had an amazing experience with them.  The moment we walked in the lobby we were welcomed by the friendliest faces.  The front desk attendee was extremely informative and had some great suggestions for where to eat on the property.

 

Our room was the perfect size for us.  We had a king bed with a balcony that overlooked the golf course.  Andi got to sleep on the pull out bed, which she loved!  It was her first time sleeping in a “big  girl bed”.  She did better than expected.  We thought for sure that she would get up and run around since there weren’t crib walls keeping her in,  but she stayed put until she fell asleep each night.

Shortly after settling in the room, there was a knock on our door.  Much to our surprise, room service was delivering a welcome package. We received this beautiful cheese and fruit spread with my favorite cabernet by Kendall-Jackson!

Every detail in the resort was perfectly planned out.  The colors and fabrics gave it a sophisticated charm.  Each room had a luxurious appeal to it.

Our first night, we took Andi to the pool.  She had a blast!  There are 5 pools, 2 lazy rivers, a water slide, and a pirate ship with a tunnel to crawl through. We had to bribe her with ice cream for her to even consider leaving.  We found a nice spot outside to watch the Epcot fireworks without having to leave the resort.

I will be sharing more photos from our stay at the Wyndham Grand Orlando next week, as well as a post from her birthday party.

Thanks for stopping by!

Austin Bound: Inspiration Boards

Hi, all! My cousin is going to Austin next month, and she asked me to help her find a few things to wear.  I found some pieces I think she will love all by using inspiration boards.

No one really TRIES to over-pack.  It just… happens.  That is where a style board can help you plan ahead and not over load your suitcase. Below are three that I created using the Polyvore app, which what I’ve been using for my inspiration boards to save some room around the house.
