Fabulous Weekend Getaway

Over the summer, I entered my name in one of those sweepstakes that I never ever win. Well, I no longer can say, "Not fair! I never win anything!" I had won a $500 gift certificate to any W Hotel in the US. I know, right?! How awesome is that?!?!?! We chose to head over to the W - Downtown Atlanta since that was a quick drive over and back. The boys got to hang out with Jason parents, Nana and Papa :) They had a blast! I will share pics from their fun soon, but lemme just show ya how you live up the city life when you are 2 young parents who won a much needed vacay!

On our way!! WOOT!!

I know...WHOA!!! OK! There is a LOT of awesome in that collage, so let's go by the columns - starting on the left. AND! Remember, you can click on the pic to see it bigger :)

Left Column:
Our AWESOME room!!
The shower - wow! And, yep. you can see right on through to the bedroom LOL 

Middle Column:
Our view from the room :) Wish I had thought to take a pic at night. 
On the windows on the main and second floors there were the W's all over the place - so cool. 
The AWESOME hotel! 
The gym with a view - on the 16th floor :) And, yep! We worked out wile we were there! 
All over the walls in our room there were these crazy modern mirror art pieces. Loved it.

Right Column:
The top two pics are of the pool area - also on the 16th floor. Closed since it is winter, but very awesome :) And they have a bar there, too - the Wet Bar
Crazy cool lamp in our room. Jason wasn't a fan, but WOW!
This is the awesome thing with this hotel. It is a very "green" hotel. Most everything is all recycled in some way. In the "Living Room" (1 of the hotel bars - there are 3) there were these amazing mobiles all over the ceiling made from recycle aluminum. Loved it and kinda want to do that to the boys' room LOL

 Heading down to the Living Room for some celebration time. And, apparently, I have NO idea how to take a cool mirrored elevator pic...

Cheers to the freakin' weekend! WOOOOOT!! 

 LOL Ok, I really need to learn how to use my camera on my phone. My smart phone is making us look like dorks. Ha!

We went to Ray's in the City for an amazing seafood dinner Friday night. Complete with hot sake, sushi, crab cakes, mahi-mahi, and a praline bowl that I have GOT to figure out how to make! The whole dinner was awesome.

 Checking out the W's 2nd bar - the Drink Shop - after dinner :)

 Being silly after a super celebration to our first night out on the town. I really want a waffle robe now. I am SO getting one this week.

Anyhoo! That is our first night of our amazing weekend getaway. Stay tuned for Day 2 and Saying Goodbye to Atlanta :)
