Weekend in Miami!




 


Over the past weekend we drove down to Miami and spent the night at our favorite beach front hotel..Marenas Resort.  It was our anniversary weekend and wanted to go somewhere we could have fun with the whole family. This is now the second time we have taken the girls to this particular resort (which is pretty impressive because both my husband and I love trying new places.) This resort offers "condo style" rooms which is awesome when traveling with children, has a really good onsite restaurant and is located right on Sunny Isles Beach.  The standard suite has views of both the ocean and the harbor. Stunning views! They also do NOT charge extra for beach chairs and umbrellas which is almost unheard of now a days.  It's moderately priced for everything your getting in this location.


These are the views off the patios and around the pool.  I just love Miami's water! Its such a beautiful color and reminds me of the Bahamas! 


We spent all day Saturday down at the beach with the girls.  The resort also offers a an area for the kids to play with tons of sand toys and shade from umbrellas.  My girls were in heaven! (and mommy didn't have to haul a gazillion beach toys from home) 


Here are the views on either side of the balcony.  Gorgeous!! The balconies are also quite spacious with very clean and modern outdoor furniture. Two cushioned chairs and a table.  
Having two young children that get exhausted from spending long days in the sun and water we always look for hotels that give good dining options onsite.  Marenas does not disappoint! This was the seafood pasta dish I ordered.  We ate outside on the patio enjoying the views. (Pretty Romantic!)

Here are some shots of the inside of the suite.  You can see the full size kitchen, granite counters and stainless appliances. (and my 4 year old running around lol)   The bottom picture is of the bedroom that offers a king size bed and floor to ceiling windows for those gorgeous views!
The girls and I getting ready to take on South Beach! Sunday morning we left early to walk around Ocean Avenue.  It only takes about 30 minutes to get there from the resort and you drive along the beach the whole way looking at all the fun hotels!


Sunday we walked up and down Ocean Ave.  It's a whole different experience than going there at night! My daughters love seeing all the outdoor restaurants and palm trees lining the street and beach.  We had a perfect weekend "away" and I'm sure we will be back at Marenas next year!

One Room Challenge (Week 6) Dining Room REVEAL

It's week SIX! Our dining room is officially done and the One Room Challenge has come to an end...
Check out all the ORC reveals here....Guest Participants Before I get into all the pictures I want to thank my partners on this project! Without them this room would never have come together as it did!  So a BIG "thank you" to 
Lexmod Furniture WallPops Bealls Outlet
Lets start off by taking a look back six weeks at the dining room "Before".


The room sat pretty empty for a few months after we moved in but now it is anything but empty! 
She's all DONE!



When I come down the stairs now I can't help but love my new view! I am so happy I went with the side accent wall and not the wall opposite the window!  I think it makes the room feel bigger.

Treetopia's Merry CHIC-Mas Blog Hop

I am so excited to share that Sunny Chic Home is a part of the 2017 Treetopia Christmas Blog Hop!
This years theme couldn't be more perfect... Treetopia's Merry CHIC-Mas!
 Treetopia wants to help you add some sparkle to your holidays by celebrating a glitz and glam Christmas with the Treetopia bloggers!
I am kicking off the season with a very Merry CHIC-Mas themed master bedroom! Make sure to check out the four other fabulous bloggers this week!

You all know by now I love me some Christmas spirit in the bedroom and in our new home the master is light and bright so I wanted to continue that in the holiday decor.
  I chose to use the GORGeous Treetopia 7' prelit Tinkerbell Silver Christmas Tree. The silvery tinsel tips add such a magical touch and the width of 47" make the tree such a great piece and perfect CHIC-mas addition to any room.
