Vacation Recap

IMG_0217

Although I’ve taken a break the last several days (yay for vacation!), I am back! This past week was magical to say the least! We spent the last week down in Orlando visiting the happiest place on Earth, Walt Disney World, of course. When we left New Jersey, it was a cool 75 degrees, but when we arrived in Orlando, it was a balmy 90 with high humidity, talk about a bad hair week! Having been away from Texas for a while, I certainly wasn’t prepared for the heat, but we pushed on to all four parks. We started our week off in Epcot, enjoying  a drink at each of the countries. My favorite was the pinot noir from France, and at a very reasonable $5 per drink, France became my favorite country to visit.IMG_0147Side note, I have been eagerly trying to teach myself how to french braid my hair. With the summer heat in full force, I normally throw my hair in a low (regular) braid and toss on my favorite Vineyard Vines hat. When I’m at the beach or doing something outdoors with friends I always try to get a friend to french braid my hair, which helps all the layers stay in place much better. We had an early flight out and after watching several YouTube videos at the airport at 4am, I finally figured it out! You’ll notice I pretty much wore my hair this way all week, hello high temperatures and humidity.

One thing I love about Disney is no matter how old you are, there is something to do for everyone. Whether it’s the yummy food and drinks at Epcot, adventures in Animal Kingdom, thrills at Hollywood Studios, or the enchantment of Magic Kingdom, there is a reason (even for those of us without kids) Disney is such an attraction!

Speaking of Magic Kingdom, prior to our arrival I had registered us to embark on a drinks and dessert cruise one evening to watch the fireworks over the lagoon of Magic Kingdom. Sadly it was cancelled due to the weather, but I was so excited to wear my new dress for numerous reasons. One being that it’s under $100 and two, its extremely lightweight – did I mention how hot it was? Some days feeling like 105 degrees, lightweight clothing was essential to survive a day at the park!

Most mornings we would visit the different parks and head back to the Boardwalk in the afternoon to cool off at the pool. Once the evening rolled around, we showered and headed back out to watch the parades and even catch a glimpse of the magical fireworks show put on every evening. All in all we had a wonderful and relaxing vacation. We can’t wait to go back again soon! Scroll down for a few more pictures of our trip!
