Setting Up Home: In a Hotel Room

While I was on a week long vacation on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina last week I was unpacking all of my belongings as if I was actually moving in for good. Much to my surprise, I wasn't alone in my hotel room nesting strategy.

My fellow vacationers were also very keen on unpacking all of their belongings and setting up each room like it were a room in their own home. Even though we don't necessarily spend much time in hotel rooms during vacation, it's still an awesome feeling for it to be super comfortable after a long day on the beach.

We brought our favorite scented candles, our shoe organizer for the closet, as well as our own pillows and comforter (you never know when a hotel is going to offer up those awful thin, scratchy comforters!) We brought a stack of books that we stacked on our bed side tables. Not only did it add a great homey feeling; but it doesn't get much better than reading an awesome book while lounging pool side.

Are you the hotel room nesting type? What do you bring with you to help set up home in your hotel room?
