The Big Reveal

Hi friends,
Thanks for joining me today. How are you? How is your week going?

Ah, it's good to be back home from a week in paradise. Honestly, how much relaxing can one girl take? 4 days of fun in the sun was perfect (plus two traveling days). Ready and rejuvenated to get back into kids, school, work, life, etc.

So, where were we? Scrub Island. Scrub Island? you say. Where the heck is that? You've never heard of it? We hadn't either! We learned about Scrub Island while researching beach resorts affliated with Marriott hotels so we could use our Marriott Reward points.

Scrub Island is in the British Virgin Islands. Good thing I got my passport renewed because you need it to travel here. The resort is the only thing on this small island. The resort just opened two years ago so everything is pretty and new.

You can fly into Tortola which we did or St. Thomas and take a ferry boat ride over to Scrub Island. The resort has ferries running back and forth every hour which is a complimentary service for it's guests.

Stop back by in a day or so and I'll share what activities my husband Steve and I engaged in while on our beach getaway to Scrub Island. I'll post some photos of us too in this awesome location and tell you more about it.

Save those Marriott Reward points! They add up! All we had to pay for was a $50 a day Resort Room Tax and of course, our food and tropical drinks (oh! those tropical drinks). More about that in my next posting.

Take care friends. Thanks again for joining me today.
Happy decorating & living,


  1. You are one lucky girl.

    Leaving tomorrow for a week in DC/ Falls Church with a possible visit to Richmond or Charlottesville if time allows.

    Packing, cleaning, yard work, errands. Will I be ready to go? Me have it so easy. Pack their bag and go. WE WOMEN lay the groundwork for departure!!!! Is this truly a vacation? Certainly not like yours.

    Can't wait for pics. Did you get a chance to wear those thrifty dresses you bought?


    1. Men, I meant!!! Spelling error on iPad.

  2. Hi Barb,
    Thanks for the note. Yes, I did get to wear the strapless red and white floral consignment dress. It was perfect for the islands!
    Have a great time in Virginia!
    I read three great books while on vacation- definitely a perk of all of that relaxation time. I'll update my reading page on my blog.
    Take care and safe travels-
