5 Reasons Why I Need a Staycation From Woodlands Resort

Woodlands-Resort-Family-StaycationAs part of a sponsorship with the BlogElevated conference, the Woodlands Resort and Conference Center is holding a blog post contest for a family staycation for four at the resort.

Here’s my entry, 5 Reasons Why I Need A Staycation From Woodlands Resort.

5. My wife deserves a spa day.

As a stay-at-home mom, and me being an home-office dad, she puts up with a lot to make sure that I can attend meetings and conference calls. She deserves a spa day and the resort’s Sauna, Steam Room, Whirlpool, and Fitness Center would be great spots to unwind.

4. I need to find out what a “Family Welcome Cookie.” is.

Is it one big cookie? Is “Welcome” written across it in frosting? I just need to know this.

3. My kids are half fish already.


They’d love a swim in the amazing Woodlands Resort pool.

2. The Resort is so close!

Conveniently located in the Greater Houston Area, you can access all of these amazing amenities and make a weekend trip without having to take a long expensive vacation!

1. Because I love bacon too.

We’ve all seen the “special request” section when booking a hotel room. That usually means you’d like a chilled champagne bottle for a special occasion, or special meal requests.

According to one Reddit user, he added a unique special request, three single red M&M’s, and a picture of bacon on the bed… “I added this when I booked the room online. A month later, I had completely forgotten about it,” he says.

“I was quite confused when I walked in and saw three single red M&Ms…”


“My girlfriend started laughing at the picture on the bed. At that point it clicked and I started laughing hysterically at the beautifully framed picture of bacon…” AFa5irIh

“Glorious, glorious bacon.” OM6VpP3h

The Resort, always the great sport, shared the story on their Google+ page, “Who doesn’t love bacon!?”
