Wow! We just got an AWESOME deal for our anniversary!

Okay, so DH and I have been talking about what we're doing for our anniversary.  Fortunately for me, it falls during Spring Break, and if DH is still at his job (unless he gets a job teaching), we will have three days to spend together to celebrate.  So we decided to have a little getaway in Houston--we'd get a pretty good hotel, stay there, and just go different places in the downtown area.  We went to Priceline to look at what we could get, and I said, "Let's try the 'Name Your Own Price' option."  We did it once before and got an okay deal, so I made a bid for a 3 1/2 Star Plus hotel for $125 a night.  I honestly thought they were going to come back and say that I didn't get it, because they said most hotels in that range accept around the $208 per night bid.


Next thing I know, as it's processing, I read the words, "Congratulations.  We were able to upgrade you to a 4-star hotel in the Houston area for $125 a night."  Yes, that's right, ladies, a 4 STAR HOTEL!  I was simply blown away.  So DH and I immediately went to the hotel's website, and it is GORGEOUS!  Then, just for the heck of it, I decided to look up approximately what it would cost if we had gone through the hotel's reservation system, and I was even more shocked.


This place's best available rate for a deluxe king room (the lowest on the totem pole) is $269 a night, coming to a grand total for two nights (with taxes and such) at $629.46.  What we're paying for two nights with taxes is $302.44.  So yes, we're are paying less than HALF of the normal price.  It is INSANE!


Oh, and I probably should have prefaced this by saying that I am in no way advertising for Priceline--I just had to share the wonderful news of this amazing deal that we got.  DH and I are now even MORE excited about celebrating our first year together!

Thanks, ladies!  Even though our anniversary is still a ways off, it is so weird that it's been that long!  I think it was about this time last year that I was sending out invitations at this time, taking care of fittings, and figuring out other things.  It's a bit surreal.
