In general I love Hamptons, however there are a few misses in the hotel chain. A majority are clean, well staffed, with a good breakfast, and include great amenities. We do try to look out for them if we are on the road traveling!
On our road trip through Kentucky we stayed at a Holiday Inn Express and the night shift attendant was humorous and extremely helpful. We had an early start and the breakfast had pretty much everything you could have asked for!
Delta is a love/hate company for my family. My parents won't fly with them anymore but I've enjoyed the past few cross country trips I have made. Plus, the terminals that house Delta flights are by far superior to other airlines.
My youth Christmas trips cross country are full of memories flying Southwest. I miss the days when airline assistants would gather the airplane crowd and play games, it seems more personal than flying nowadays. Love the great deals you can get on trips though!
One of my go to ground coffee choices for coffee first thing in the morning. I love the flavor meld between the Kahlúa and hazelnut. All I need is a little bit of cream and sugar and I have the perfect pick me up to start my day.
One of my favorite ways to drink Crown Royal Apple is to mix with some ginger ale. It creates a drink that is a little tart but sweet. Overall it is a good mid range whiskey with a flavor to add a little surprise to your drink.
