Wine Blending Experience

Happy Monday!! Back at it after such a fun weekend! One of my precious friends is about to have her first baby, and we all came together and spent the weekend celebrating her together! It’s always so nice getting to see each other, but especially when big life events are involved!!

We all headed down Friday, and stayed at the most beautiful hotel EVER! Truly, Grand Bohemian was one of the most amazing places. I could have stayed at the hotel all weekend (and their amazing spa) and been beyond content!

They not only have a gorgeous property, but amazing food, several on site activities such as cooking classes, and an incredible art museum! Every piece of art throughout the hotel is available for purchase-so neat!

Even if you aren’t a guest of the hotel, the restaurant is open to the public as well as a fun wine mixing class! Their bar is also gorgeous and they have a large outdoor area that’s perfect for grabbing drinks and food with friends!

Grand Bohemian Hotel Mountain Brook Lobby

Apart from feeling like a total celebrity at the Grand Bohemian, the staff was INCREDIBLE! They even open your elevator door. Top notch staff and every tiny detail was so amazing! It would be the perfect romantic getaway for any couples! If you’re really looking to wow someone, they also have an amazing presidential suite that’s being updated currently and will be open soon!


On our last night there, I was starving from our busy schedule and I called and requested something that wasn’t even on the menu.. they were so kind and generous and the food was UNREAL! Again, the service there was like no other!

Speaking of food, I hope you wake up hungry, because their breakfast buffet was out of this world! They also had a chef making waffles or omelettes and it was so so good!

We had such a great time at the Grand Bohemian and I already told my husband I can’t wait to take him back! I see a full spa day with massages and snacks in our future…

Friends at Birmingham

What a gift to celebrate our friend on the arrival of her first baby girl!! It’s amazing how blogging has brought so many people into my life that I would have never met otherwise! I’ve been blessed to be able to experience so many new places and make memories that will last a lifetime!
