It’s no secret that I am addicted to Groupon.
I’m actually going through Groupon withdrawals right now. I am super hesitant to buy anything since I don’t know how long we will live here. We need to find out already so I can sign up for the emails for that city, get my credit card out and all will be right with the world again.
I’m also trying to use up all of our current “deals” before they expire and well, before we expire. Not like dying, don’t get all morbid on me.
I had two deals for one night stays at 1) a spa/hotel in Bellingham and 2) a hotel in Vancouver. Since B-Ham is only like an hour away from V-Couver, I
obviously brilliantly decided a weekend getaway was on tap.
Friday afternoon we made like a baby and headed out.
Please don’t stop reading,
I will most likely keep telling bad jokes and making myself laugh I promise I will stop.
After din, we headed to our 1st hotel of the two hotel weekend. This place was the JAM. I know that is a weird way to describe a fancy spa place, but I just don’t know how else to say it. It was fantastic.
Woke up Sat morning and the first thing Paul says is “I have four words for you. Tem. Pur. Pe. Dic.” I swiftly informed him that it is not four words. Silly. It’s two. Tempur. Pedic. Duh. 🙂
majorly slightly obsessed with our tempurpedic bed. Its getting to the point where its unhealthy to be so in love with an inanimate object we might have to only go to hotels that have them. ITS THAT GOOD. But I digress…
We went to breakfast (which came with our deal) and it was…well…here look at this pic and YOU tell me how I think it was.
I went back for two helpings of the melon/fruit medley. Wow was it good.
Oh and the bacon was IN the eggs. How have I not done this before?
Got all the pics of the hotel and surrounding area in the morning b/c it was like 4pm when we got there so of course it was pitch black. Kidding, that’s a little pacific northwest humor for ya there. No? Ok, moving on…
We enjoy staring pensively out to the water. Its very soothing.
Aaaand it was time to go.
On to Vancouver we went. Made it across the border quickly and were on our way to hotel #2.
When we got there lunch time it was. And all of a sudden I am channeling Yoda.
Then we realized that there was a “sea bus” that went directly from our hotel across the water to downtown Vancouver. Sign us up.
While waiting for this sea bus to arrive I took this:
Off we went to explore in city. This is what we saw:
Being on the lookout for misspelled signs is exhausting. Dinner time!
We took our “sea bus” back to our hotel and were feeling a little giddy…
…and decided we needed something sweet to cap off the night. So we hunted down some gelato. It’s no fro-yo, but it will do.
I should have had two scoops of the double dark chocolate.
Woke up missing our tempurpedic again. If we could figure out how to make travel size tempurpedics we would be instant millionares.
Breakfast at the hotel before our epic workout in Stanley Park.
All in all a fantab groupon weekend!
