Family trip to Daytona Beach and Max Beach Resort!


                                Disclaimer   *Thank you to Max Beach Resort for hosting us on this stay.  All opinions written about our stay are my own.*

         Daytona Beach has been on my travel list for a while! Over the past three years we would stop and grab lunch in Daytona but it was always while driving through the area.  This past weekend I packed up the family and we spent three days exploring Daytona Beach and enjoying ourselves at the most beautiful resort!! 

        Daytona Beach is about a 2-2 1/2 hour drive from Tampa which makes it the perfect weekend getaway! We arrived on a Friday afternoon, the sun was shining and we were ready for some fun! 

    We stayed at The Max Beach Resort which is an all new luxury condo resort.  From the moment we arrived I could tell we were going to love this place!!  We stayed in a three bedroom oceanfront condo.  Each room came with their own full bathroom, there was a spacious full kitchen, family room and even a laundry room!


        The balcony was one of the largest we've ever seen! Which was perfect because the views from the resort can be seen from any angle.  (We spent lots of time out on this balcony. Florida living!!)

        The resort features all day dining, pool side service and even private cabana rentals.  We ordered some lunch and took in all the magnificent beach views while dining al fresco.  The girls were so excited about the rooftop game room we decided to spend the afternoon exploring the resort.  We actually ended up spending the rest of the afternoon in the game room! It was probably the nicest resort game room I have ever seen.  Not only because of the choice games but because of the incredible floor to ceiling windows overlooking the ocean.  On this same level there were two rooftop lounges and a fitness gym. 

        By the time dinner rolled around we opted for room service in our suite.  Elton and I relaxed on the balcony and the girls enjoyed hanging out working on some puzzles inside. The condo kind of made you never want to leave!! I could have spent the whole weekend right there!! 

        On Saturday we had some breakfast and walked the beach with coffee in hand.  Isn't that the best?!  Afterward we decided to take a drive because the weather was getting a bit chilly.  Just a short drive away you can find Ormond Beach which is known for its "cinnamon sand".  The girls thought this was cool since most Florida beaches have sugary white sands.  Afterward we stopped by the Daytona Beach Ocean Walk Shoppes.  We strolled though some beach shops, got ice cream and even stopped in one of our favorites...Sloppy Joes!  This is a fun little spot if you are visiting.

        On our way back to the resort that night we decided to stop in a Publix and grab food to make dinner.  I love when hotel resorts offer full kitchens.  It's nice to break up vacation dining with your own meals as well.  We ended up making some lasagna and salad that night all in the comfort of our room!! 

        If you are planning a stay in Daytona Beach don't hesitate to book Max Beach Resort.  Honestly after my own mother saw our pictures she began looking for a weekend for all of us to go back and stay! The convenience of the large condo is so nice!! It was a wonderful stay and I know we will be back!!

Neutrals by BEHR Paint

I've been working on a project for the past two weeks and what always seems to be the most challenging part is choosing paint colors.  I have been wanting to find a nice neutral that isn't too "Gray" and isn't too "Beige" but not too white either. I personally like the look of white walls in pictures but in reality I'm not a huge fan.  Also, I like to see a contrast between painted walls and white trim.  Each time I look over on Pinterest for inspiration I find lots of suggestions for other paint brands..but I'm a BEHR girl :)  We spend so much time at Home Depot it just makes more sense for us.  That being said I decided to share with all of you my suggestions for finding the perfect "light Greige" by BEHR Paints!   To start off with here are three options that are lighter/cooler but will still show a nice contrast next to white. 1. Drizzle 2. Sterling 3. Halation These three options are als

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
