One of my dearest, oldest friends was married this weekend and I had the pleasure of attending and making a weekend trip of it with the boy. It was a Disney wedding, because Disney holds fond memories for both the bride and groom, but it was also the bride’s dream to be wed at Disney, so win-win for all 🙂
The boy and I held off on our anniversary earlier this month to save up for the trip and make it extra special. We had an indulgent dinner at the Boathouse restaurant in Disney Springs, and enjoyed a day trip to Animal Kingdom before the wedding. It was lovely and even this snarky wedding Grinch was charmed by the Disney magic.
Date night at last…
featuring the lobster bake from the Boathouse
and the cutest dessert from Amorette’s Patisserie.
Followed by a bright and early trip to Animal Kingdom
where the views were spectacular
and the critters too cute for words.
The wedding night was also just right… clear skies and chilly weather.
We clean up nice…
My first proper vlog! A little shaky and blurry, but my efforts continue! I tried to film a little of everything, but was so excited and distracted by the magic of Harry Potter, I completely forgot to film during our visit to Universal… there is a wee snippet involving a Pygmypuff adoption ceremony that the boy filmed :). I hope you enjoy the madness of library con and Pottery goodness. And don’t forget to subscribe to my channel if you enjoy my rambly videos.
Also, today marks the second round of my Whole30 “journey,” so I’m back on an exploration of food and flavor. I really need it after my trip (let’s just say there was a lot of sugar and dairy).
There were books. There was food. There was hot, hot heat. And there was butterbeer! I recorded a very silly vlog during my adventures (to be edited and posted), but here is a glimpse.
Friday night dinner at D-Luxe in Disney Springs…
Saturday morning. Working it.
Waiting for my crew to show up for our poster session. Trying to look proper.
After business, the pleasure begins.
I waited a long time to visit this park; it was so worth it. The experience totally blew my mind. Just perfect.
