Hotel Bathroom Haiku

Hotel bathtub bliss
Hot water up to my chin
No one knocks on door

I just returned from an amazing trip to tour the Nintendo headquarters in Seattle with equally amazing bloggers from across the country and get my inner gamer girl on with the new Nintendo 3DS. My connecting flight home in Denver was delayed due to mechanical issues so I spent the night in Denver Saturday with my fellow Nashville blogger friends who are all fabulous. We ended up having the most amazing brunch Sunday at Rioja in downtown Denver. The eggs benedict nearly made me weep with joy. Then we burned off calories by shopping. Not a bad way to spend a Sunday!

The group dynamic was all Real Bloggers Of Nashville unleashed in downtown Denver minus any reality TV drama unless you count the looks on our faces when the snow started coming down yesterday and we thought we might get delayed another night. Toss in some Midnight at the Roxbury vibe from our hotel with a little Steel Magnolias and Sex in the City minus the actual sex and there you have it. None of us expected to get delayed in Denver, but we made the most of it by indulging in retail therapy group kumbaya, good food, and drinks. Of course then dinner last night for me was a sandwich out of a deli bag at the Denver airport but I can’t complain.

I’ll be writing more about the amazing Nintendo 3DS as soon as I get caught up on life, work, and reality, but I’ll just say it’s mind blowing enough for me to use the 13-year-old boy term amazeballs. 

Now, what I want to know is are you team Mario or Luigi? I think I’m more Team Donkey Kong, circa 1987, sitting on the floor at my then boyfriend now husband’s house. Yeah we go back THAT far.

Disclosure: I worked with Brand About Town as a brand ambassador for Nintendo for an American Heart Association/Nintendo Wii event last fall and was invited to attend this Nintendo 3DS social media event. My hotel, airfare, and most meals were provided by Nintendo. All opinions expressed about the Nintendo 3DS are mine.

    You are a brave woman for using a hotel bathtub!

    Glad you had fun! I’m a little leary about the 3ds for children, their eyes are still growing…I dunno, maybe its just my mama overprotectiveness coming out. My gut though, usually isn’t wrong.

    Jennifer, don’t freak me out about the hotel bathtub! 😉

    I will definitely, definitely address this when I write more of a review post about the Nintendo 3DS. It is designed for ages 7 and up and you can adjust the level of 3D and even choose to turn it off completely or put it on lockdown via parental controls

    I found that with my old mama eyes of 41 (ha) I didn’t like the full on 3D and would turn it down. It also depends on the game, too.

    More later, though. I don’t want to write the full review here!

    Yeah, you got to see my old stomping grounds. Though we are now in NC, we moved here from Denver. Snow in April is nothing – I remember a blizzard chasing my son’s 2nd birthday party indoors. On May 21st!

  4. Jamie says:

    Tory it was 80 degrees when we arrived late Saturday afternoon in Denver from Seattle and by lunch time on Sunday it was SNOWING! Crazy! Luckily we all had at least light jackets, but um, no snow boots. Back to 80 here in Nashville yesterday and today looking tornado-ish.

    Good times with Mother Nature.

  5. Lindsay says:

    Denver ended up being one of those things I’ll never forget. Maybe we should make it an annual occurrence! Now that we’re back…

    I kinda miss it. ;D

    I LOVE Rioja- it is about the only place I go to when in Denver. Glad you all had a ‘surprise’ brunch there, even if it did mean getting back late to your families <3
