Happy Memories: Disney {Part I}

epcot1

 

Last summer, I tagged along with Michael to his National Championship volleyball tourny. I got to spend 10 days in beautiful Florida, in Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, fo freeee! It was amazing! We also had tons of free food vouchers, so that is why we ate an insane amount of food. It was super amazing and I can’t wait to go back!!! :]
This was the first trip that I took where I didn’t leave the airport at the crack of dawn, so we didn’t arrive in Florida until late at night…. Needless to say, I wasn’t a very happy camper…

BUT THEN, we got on Disney’s Magical Express and all the great fun started!!! I’ll start my happy reminiscing with some of our meals, our Epcot visit, and other fun times :]

A Few Of My Favorite Things…

Yesterday before the Blackhawks game I got to do some lovely shopping and have a delicious lunch at one of my all-time favorite restaurants! It was such a perfect day; I bought a few cute items (to be showcased in a post to come), had some seriously amazing food, and sat in the 8th row at the Chicago Blackhawks game! It was SUCH a blast, definitely a fabulous Sunday :]

SITTING 8TH ROW!!!!! :]
