Embassy Suites in Colorado Springs

This is the inside of the Embassy Suites in Colorado Springs where we stayed on vacation. You, too, can stay here FOR FREE if your husband travels so much for work that he gets a buttload of hotel miles to spend! They had an excellent free breakfast, but standing in a long line every morning for protein was a bunch of b.s. when you have small hungry kids.  The E.S. in Phoenix was much better back in 2002 ... you only had to stand in line if you wanted an omelet, while bacon and scrambled eggs were in a separate warmer. In case you're doing, "Who gives a crap, Kerrie?" ... I write all this because companies Google themselves and this is an easier way for me to review them than to mess with finding out their contact info and on and on.
This is a pic Aron wanted to take of us from the downstairs part of the hotel. We were on the 4th floor, and the kids had a blast messing around in the glass elevators!
Look at those monkeys on the luggage cart! This is a goofy tradition we have: taking pictures of our kids after giving them rides on hotel luggage carts.

This concludes the hotel portion of Postcards from the McLoughlins. Not sure where we're heading tomorrow, but it'll be a good time.


  1. Why is it when we get "free" we can still find something to complain about........ If there was no food when you got there, then that would be something to complain about.

  2. Oh, anonymous, you don't know me very well. i can ALWAYS find something to complain about. not a good character trait, but i own it nonetheless. and i'm thinking i'm not alone. btw, you stand in line for 30 minutes with 5 hungry kids and tell me you wouldn't bitch just a weeeee little bit! since i'm a gemini, on the other side of the coin, i will say i am thankful they had cereal and milk and fruit available. i complain, but i am a happy person at heart.

  3. MAN that sounds like a nice perk! And funny how all the critical comments are anonymous, but the nice ones have signatures. :)

    PS Hang on. I think someone else wanted to say something. Signing off.

  4. Hello! My name is anonymous, and I'm here because I have a hobby. I like to bug ten people every day by leaving nasty comments on their blog so that my self-esteem is higher.

    My comment for the day is this: You are so busy galavanting around the world that you can't seem to clothe and put shoes on all your children. What is up with that? Next you will be complaining that the hotel didn't pass out free shoes and Onesies. (tm)

    Waah Waah Waah. I have sour grapes because I didn't get a free vacation, so I think I'll pick apart your post and be mean.

    Ok. I think I'm done. On to the next blog to spread joy and good cheer!! :)

  5. hahaha! "galavanting around the world" ... that is a hoot! btw, the rest of the vacation was not free ... the Grand Lake part (photos and commentary coming) was kinda costly. and now i'm going to complain because my husband has a job and my kids are healthy and my parents are alive. and i'm 20 pounds overweight instead of 200 ... poor me!

  6. Waah! LOL. God bless ya, Kerrie! :)
