Life In A Hotel And Other Thoughts

I have to say that so far living in a hotel hasn't been so bad. There is plenty of room and we even have a kitchen. Let me tell you that being able to cook dinner has been amazing. I do not think that we could function on eating out for almost every meal. 

Emma has a grassy patch downstairs that she can hang out on and Fishy has made himself comfortable underneath the bed haha. They hotel even provides a grab and go type breakfast with muffins, fruit, granola bars, coffee, tea and hot chocolate. It's pretty nice.

Emma proves that she can be comfortable anywhere.

As of this afternoon we will no longer be homeowners, we signed yesterday and it should all fund today. It is a HUGE relief (we did have some mixed emotions yesterday) and we are excited to move on to new adventures. 

Now we look ahead to Kyle's Color Casing ceremony on Wednesday. We are doing a small reception afterwards with cake and refreshments so that has been my focus. Another chapter of Kyle's military career is coming to an end but what lies ahead is going to be amazing.

We have no huge plans for the weekend except a trip to the Farmer's Market in Las Cruces to eat lunch at our favorite burrito truck and get kettle corn. :)

I hope you all have an amazing weekend!


  1. It's great that your room has a kitchen. Def more of an efficiency apartment than a hotel room feel. And congrats on closing!

  2. You had me at burrito truck :) I'm glad that the hotel is working out for now!

  3. Hahaha Fishy is comfortable under the bed... yup, sounds about right for a cat! lol

  4. The best part of temporary hotel living is the don't have to do it! :)

  5. I loved my little kitchen but wished it had an oven. I tried a microwave bread recipe and it was horrible. When I lived at an extended stay 6 years ago they didn't do the grab and go breakfast.

  6. Hotel livin! I would totally need a kitchen too, I cant eat out a lot without feeling sluggish. Yay for the weekend!

  7. I remember this hotel living; we stayed at a hotel for almost a month when we got to Ft. Riley back in the days, drove me nuts :-) I hope the time goes by fast and you get to move on to your new duty station! Enjoy your weekend, dear Jen!

    1. :) Thanks Stephanie! It hasn't been bad, yet! haha.

  8. That hotel looks niiiiice!!!! I'm glad it is working out for you guys comfortably!

  9. I think I could handle it for a while. Hang in there!

  10. I'm glad the hotel hasn't been so bad! Hope you had a great weekend.

  11. I'm glad hotel living has been even a bit more than tolerable. Yay for the kitchen!

  12. We stayed at the Navy Lodge for 39 days when we got to Hawaii and thank GOD it had a small kitchenette. I think would have lost my mind otherwise :p
