Celebrating Moms in May…the Residence Inn way!


You know how partial I am to Residence Inn properties.

And it’s not because I’m a Residence Inn Mom. Oh no!…

I just genuinely love staying at a property that gives me the feeling of being at home, even though I’m  miles away.


So when I read about the Residence Inn Mom’s Month Sweepstakes I couldn’t resist throwing my name into the hat.


Residence Inn by Marriott

Week 1 (5/2 – 5/4) – A Waffle Maker – so you can recreate the Residence Inn waffles in your own home!
Week 2 (5/5 – 5/11) – A $150 Residence Inn Gift Card – so you can relax in our suite on your next trip to your favorite destination!
Week 3 (5/12 – 5/18) – Paul Mitchell® Gift Baskets – to make sure your hair is as fabulous as you!
Week 4 (5/19 – 5/25) – A Pillow and Robe – so you can get that well-deserved shut-eye!
Week 5 (5/26 – 5/31) – A Kindle Fire – for your travel bag!
PLUS Five (5) Blow-Out Prizes per city* at select Paul Mitchell® Salons and Schools in NYC on 5/13, Washington, D.C. on 5/14, Chicago on 5/16 and in LA on 5/21



Honestly, who wouldn’t want to win Residence Inn Gift Cards or one of those handy waffle makers. Or get pampered with a Paul Mitchell gift basket?

My eye is on winning hopefully winning a Kindle!


Other great celebrations in store this month…


Resident Inn Facebook Fans can also win complimentary wash house experiences and blow-outs at Paul Mitchell The School locations in Chicago, Los Angeles and the Washington, D.C. area, and Paul Mitchell Focus Salon Raika Studio in New York City. (5 winners from each city will be picked)



And to help families with travel advice, tips and more, a Residence Inn Family Travel Talk Forum has just been created.

Headed by 10 travel experts, this open Facebook Group will help make travel to, from and at a destination, so much easier.


Oh and don’t forget to keep checking back on the Facebook page as this year’s 2013 Residence Inn Celebrity Mom will be announced soon!!



As a Resident Mom, though I am being compensated for my time, the heart of this post is all me!
