Hilton At Granite Park And Local Area Review

My recent trip to Dallas, Texas took me to the Next conference in Plano, Texas. I have wanted to see Terri Savelle Foy in person because she has been very inspirational to me with her podcasts and television broadcast this past year. You can find her at: http://www.terri.com.

I decided to stay where the conference was being held and that was at the Hilton in Granite Park in Plano, Texas. My stay was made even better with all of the wonderful staff there. I don’t think I ran into one single unhappy person during my time there. http://bit.ly/2jDaM1P

When I arrived at the Hilton I was able to use their valet service. When you are anxious to get settled into your room valet parking is a blessing. One of the amenities that I was more than willing to use. It saved me time in looking for a parking space.

What I liked about staying at the Hilton was that I didn’t need to venture far at all. Had I stayed longer I would have gone to the nearby IKEA store too. http://bit.ly/2knqeMy

What kind of amenities are a must have for you when you travel?

I always look for a place that has a nice restaurant on site and that offers lattes whenever possible. I am most definitely a coffee girl. It doesn’t matter if it is morning, noon or night. I mean doesn’t everybody need coffee?

This Hilton had a nice outdoor pool with a hot tub and a really nice fire pit outside that had seating all around it. It made it nice to be able to sit at different areas and everyone would get their time around the fire.

There were plenty of areas inside to work at and a bar to eat or have cocktails at. There was also access to a 24 hour fitness center. On my second morning there I made it to the gym by 5:00 am and was the only one there.

When you know you’re in your element

Ever make a trip to your hometown to see how it’s changed?

That’s the beauty of taking a spontaneous trip for the fun of it. However, I have a confession to make. I go to my hometown to catch up with friends and to see family.

I went back to my hometown in Ohio and was happy to see some updated changes. I used to go to a coffee café called Davinci’s. Now it has changed ownership and is called Down Thyme Café.

No matter what coffee café that you go to always ask what the current most favorite drink is. In my case the ever so popular Pumpkin Spice Latte had made its debut.

Getting Out of my Comfort Zone

You know what I get excited about my friends?

Getting out and doing the things that make me happy! Do you ever feel like something is missing in your life? You keep thinking about it and hope to find out what it is. If you’re like me, you either have a day job or you work full time being at home. Both are jobs that take our time.

I get it, I have lived it.

You do the daily thing day in and day out. You want to know what I did a year ago? I broke out of that mold. So I did the next best thing I started archery. How awesome is that right? It definitely has a cool factor. It’s very Katniss Everdeen of me.
