Fashion Blogger... or Whatever

Game Day

This week was an extremely fun filled and long one for me. We celebrated my son's 13th birthday. Man oh man it was a good one! Hell, if he didn't enjoy it I certainly did. The week started off with the Soulcircus, Ruth's Chris for dinner, and this weekend I surprised him with a trip to Orlando for his first NBA game. Our seats kinda sucked lol (never again) but he enjoyed the experience. I got my girl Kim-Toi to ride along (thank God for her!). For the travel down I decided to wear these amazingly comfortable joggers and what I am calling my hands down most comfortable shoes, Nike Roshe Run. I knew what ever I was going to wear needed to be fashionable, suitable for the two hour ride to Orlando, the game, and whatever we were going to do afterward. So, this worked :)

Orlando, FL, United States 

The treat for me was the hotel I made reservations at. Universal Studios is surely thinking wisely whereas they have built a more economical and family friendly hotel on their property. I have stayed at the Hard Rock Inn and trust me, it's no cheap thrill. So to learn that this hotel was available it made me very happy. I knew it would be perfect for my son and the friend he chose to ride along.

It's pretty much designed to be that of the sixties. Sooo coool! Because if you know Universal they go all out to ensure the scene is captured correctly, even the music is appropriate! Complete with a full gym, diner, bowling alley, shopping center, and uber uber uber nice pool. They actually have 2 but the main one is equipped with a water slide, fire pit, and cabanas. We stayed in the family sweet which provided us with a small sitting area and kitchenette. The sleeping area could be separated from the living area. Which was great because the living area included a let out bed. PERFECT for the kids to play their video games while me and my home girl caught some Z's. The hotel offers earl bird passes to Universal and complimentary transportation two and from the park which circles around every 15 minutes. If you are planning on making a trip to Universal  with the family and want to stay on site, this is your place! We will definitely be returning during the warmer months.
