We stayed at an Aloft in Winchester, VA. It was clean and decorated nicely. I like that it looks mor modern than the hotels with the flowery bedspreads. We stayed with our daughter who was about 4 months old and the room was big enough to fit her pack n play. The only downside is no breakfast, which I guess is why the cost to stay is so low. That's ok. I'd rather have Starbucks than hotel coffee anyway!
I have only owned Hondas. My first car was a CRV and now I drive a Civic. When I am ready to trade in, I will probably get an Odyssey to fit my kids and their friends. I can't think of a reason why I would ever get another make of car.
We use them because that's who our bank goes through. It can be frustrating because some places won't accept Visa when they accept all other major cards. For example I can't pay for anything at my university because they don't accept my Visa debit or credit card, but they accept Master Card, American Express, Discover. I don't want to open another card just to pay my tuition.
I love Zumba! They have great videos with fun music that you can do at home. I love that it feels more like dancing than working out! They have some tasty recipes too. I really like the southwest chicken burgers!
