It’s time to start planning


This year will be our 9th wedding anniversary. And, our 6th year as parents.

We’ve been bad. We haven’t been away on vacation (sans-kiddos) for more than one night together in those six years.

Yeah, that’s not good. We figure with the young kiddos and the family out of town, we might as well just wait to plan an awesome, kick butt celebration for our 40th birthdays or 15th anniversary (yes, these are a long time away!)

After talking it over, we thought we’d like to take another trip to Paris. We went when I was 7 months pregnant, and well, that’s not the ideal way to vacation across the pond. (But, we still looked good, record heat-wave and all!) Of course, while we’re there, we’d have to visit Mr. Serious’ family in England, too.


I’ve been checking out Room 77 for hotels because I can be pretty selective with the hotel searches. I looked around and found the ones with complimentary breakfast (that’s a must, I don’t want to walk around to find a place to eat) and we would have to stay at one of the hotels with free wifi because we’d have to stay in touch with the girls. Not only do they lists their best deals on hotels within your criteria; they also list their marketplace partners’ best prices, and the best deal goes to the top.

So, we’d get the features we want, and pay the price that we want. And, we can search both destinations and have it all coincide at the same time. That’s a winning vacation! Because even though it’s a vacation, we still want to be able to budget for it and get the best deal possible.

Yeah, so it’s a long way off, but we’ve got to start planning now!

Never wonder whether you’ve gotten the best deal on your hotel room again. Check out Room 77 when planning your next travel adventure!

  1. Hope you guys have a wonderful time!! I will have to remember this site when we plan our next vacation. Unfortunately my husband and I haven’t had a honeymoon or gone on vacation alone. Maybe we will do it sooner or later.
