We don’t usually celebrate Valentine’s Day, because well…I’m just not into anything cheesy and lovey-dovey like that (ever since I was a teenager, true story!). So when I noticed that Valentine’s Day was like two weeks away from last weekend, I thought, hey, why not do a little staycation around my city of Las Colinas and have a little getaway with my little family. Any excuse to have a little getaway, right?

So last weekend we stayed at NYLO Hotel Las Colinas. And we loved it!


I like the modern and spacious loft design, with a touch of industrial decor around the hotel. The room is just the right size for our small family. 

We got everything from waffles, Chinese food, to fresh-cut tulips, turned on the TV and just chilled there. It’s nice to not have to clean up and make your bed every once in a while.


Yes, J loves his orange juice. And I love spending a Saturday, not having to worry about events and what-not. I didn’t even post anything on my social media that day! I think that’s the essence of ‘celebrating love’ – as most people believe February 14th is all about. I personally like having J with us, because, well…my love is for him too, not just for Mr. Man. And it’s just more convenient to have us all together. It’s just the three of us anyways. But whatever works for you, kid or no kid, as long as you can have a little ‘sabbath’ from work and routines and getaway with your loved ones.

We talked, argued a little bit, ate, laughed, and rested. I don’t know what they put in our pillows but we slept well that night. Cute coffee mug? I know! I got it from ILY Couture.

The next day, we ate at The Loft at NYLO.

And Mr. Man played pool while Jerome chilled with his youtube videos.
