Jacksonville – Day 1

Hello from Jacksonville! ¬†We woke up yesterday morning, loaded up the car, and hit the road singing songs from Frozen all the way ūüėČ ¬†We got down to Jacksonville around 11AM and headed straight to Chris heaven …. Chipotle.




After a quick lunch it was time to do some SHOPPING. ¬†As I mentioned yesterday, my MacBook mouse trackpad has had a mind of its own for the last few weeks. ¬†It’s given be tons of anxiety since I NEED my computer not only for everything that is PA school but also for the little bit of work I still do freelancing. ¬†The closest Apple store to us is in Jacksonville so I was anxiously waiting for this trip to get it fixed. ¬†In addition to that, apparently I killed my iPhone battery with over-use. ¬†OOPS. ¬†So Apple made a pretty penny off of me yesterday between buying a new trackpad, installing it, and upgrading my phone.


I drowned my sorrows at one of MY happy places …. Lululemon.

We stayed the night at the Residence Inn by Marriott by Jacksonville Town Center and I have nothing but good things to say about our room and stay.  First, we had a one bedroom suite so the bedroom was separate from the living area.  This is a key feature for us to be able to put the girls down and still stay up past 7PM.  The room was really nice and had a full kitchen.

Since Emmalyne missed her nap this afternoon Chris and I decided to just pick up dinner and eat at the hotel room.  After chowing down I headed to the hotel gym for a quick workout.  Again, I was really impressed.  There were a couple treadmills, and elliptical, a bike, dumbbells, bench, and medicine balls.  The nice touches were fresh towels on all the machines, cold filtered water, and complimentary headphones.

Probably one of the nicest surprise features? ¬†They do FREE dinner with FREE wine and beer! ¬†WINNING. ¬†I definitely could go for a nice cold beer after a fun day of shopping ūüėČ

This morning we are heading straight to the Jacksonville Zoo before making the trek home.  Have a great day :)

–> Just in case you were wondering, I wasn’t compensated by Marriott in any way. ¬†Chris and I are just HUGE fans of the Marriott chain. ¬†Our room in Jacksonville was free due to Marriott reward points and we will definitely be staying at Residence Inn again.

  1. Fun!!! I NEED to go to the Apple store soon. My MacBook Pro’s start-up disk is full, which is making it SO slow (and very annoying), so I need a clean start. I’m going to delete everything off of it and restore to factory setting. I can’t wait for a family getaway like this next month for us!
