A Delightful Treat!

Good Day Company Girls!

Well, this morning I had such a treat! Although it would have been tons more enjoyable if my hubby had been with me...but it was quite delightful! The hotel we are staying in made a mistake when we checked in....my husband was listed under the business plan...which apparently had a few perks that we weren't aware of....like free bottled water...(after we spent over $2 on a small bottle of water)...and a free complimentary breakfast that we didn't know about yesterday and hubby spent over $8 on a muffin and a small bottle of juice from the hotel shop! So, this morning hubby says...before he left....check at the hotel desk about the complimentary breakfast....well, anybody that really knows me, knows that that's really not my thing...my personality...but I decided that if I didn't that hubby would get after me when he returned...so I decided to take my courage in hand and check it out. Well,...not only was it a complimentary breakfast, it was a wonderful full buffet, including a chef to make your omelet at the hotel restaurant called Shula's! My oh my,...was I spoiled, although I really don't care for eating by myself, it was a lovely treat.

As for Valentines...hubby and I were going to find a nice place to have dinner here in Houston...but...we made the mistake of going to Shula's for dinner the very first night...it was late when we arrived and we were too tired to go out and look for someplace.....well...let's just say Shula's is kind of high end and I assured hubby when we left that we could say that that was our Valentine's dinner!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

I always get nervous asking about perks, too. But I'm proud of you for doing it! Look what you got! :)

I love surprises...and especially when it involves good food! Glad you got such a nice FREE treat :)

I'm the same way, I don't like asking about stuff like that. $8 for a muffin? Insanity. I'm glad you're enjoying your time at the hotel.

I love going out of town because it's just about the only time I "allow" myself to read a book, just for fun. Sad, isn't it? And since we rarely travel, let's just say I'm not well-read.

I hope you enjoy Houston! I was there recently and was very impressed. My La Quinta had complimentary coffee. Sounds like your buffet was great!! Glad you enjoyed it!
