What a whirlwind weekend this was! I feel like it was just Friday and here it is already Monday.
Friday -I babysat in the morning. I made myself go to the gym to allow myself 30 minutes on the Elliptical. Thank God for the Elliptical TVs showing Sex and the City because I did NOT want to be there working out! Something about it being the weekend makes it so hard for me to get in that gym mode. However, I made it and was happy when it was over. Friday night was low key. I went to Dan’s soccer game and they won. Lucky for me there is a bar inside the soccer complex which allowed me to really enjoy the game.
The best news game Friday afternoon. I have officially gone and gotten myself a full time job! I have applied to
hundreds thousands of places and finally heard back from this one place and that one place turned out to be an awesome job and has an awesome location so it just fit perfectly! I start in November so until then I’ll continue to my crummy part time job.
Saturday- Consisted of a celebratory dinner to one of my favorite restaurants with Dan. We went to KOBE Japanese Steakhouse and it was divine. I love this place because they cook in front of you so it’s not just a meal you’re having; it’s an experience! We usually go here for special occasions, so when we go we enjoy every second of it! I got the chicken and now wish I had a picture to show you how yummy it looked! Side note: Make sure to get the “white sauce” with your meal. It is SO good and goes great with the noodles/rice/meat/everything they give you!
The last part of the evening was spent at the movies. I have been wanting to see Frankenweenie forever!! I am a lover of all things Halloween and thought this would be something good to enhance my Halloween experience for the season. This movie was super cute and I found myself laughing along with all of the other children when they were laughing. (Is that a good or a bad thing??) Some parts were a little upsetting, especially when the dog died, because it hit so close to home for me. But overall, I left feeling happy and that’s the feeling I love the most after going to see a movie. I would definitely recommend it for everyone of all ages!
Sunday- We had GORGEOUS weather here in Orlando so the day was spent outside. We took a trip to Typhoon Lagoon! More on our adventure there in my next post!
Happy Monday Everyone!!
My favorite time of the year is here. Fall is just the beginning of the holiday season. Being here in Orlando, there isn’t much of a transition from Summer to Fall. It’s basically Summer and then when it’s ready to be cold, Mother Nature picks a few days in the year and releases a cold snap. These are by far my favorite days of the year. Being from South Carolina, we always got cooler weather and a change of seasons but now not so much thanks to good ole Florida weather. The weather may not change but my “Fall Attitude” does! I am welcoming this time with open arms with Pumpkin spice candles, Halloween decorations, and my newest tradition- The Pumpkin Patch!
Dan and I made our annual (ok, this is only the second year we’ve done it) trip to the Pumpkin Patch here in Orlando. We went to the Pumpkin Patch in Winter Park at St. John Evangelical Lutheran Church. More info about their patch can be found here. While their pumpkins range a bit higher in price, their proceeds are going to the youth ministry to help send their kids on a mission trip to Arizona to help an American Indian tribe. It’s a great cause and if you live in the Orlando area, be sure to check it out.
The had the best selection of pumpkins and while I was wanting to take home a Charlie Brown pumpkin, we settled for a nice plump round one waiting to be gutted out and carved for Halloween!
What are your Halloween traditions?
This past weekend I had the pleasure of spending the weekend in Daytona Beach, Florida, with Dan, my mom, and aunts for some fun in the sun. The Wings and Waves Air Show takes place every other year in Daytona right out front of the Hilton Daytona Beach. (Which is where we stayed). The view is phenomenal and the fact that we can watch the air show from the beach was even better! We were there from Friday to Sunday which was just the perfect time for a quick get away.
Friday night we spent hanging out, catching up with family, and eating dinner at the hotel. Saturday and Sunday was the day of the actual show. The show featured different groups of pilots that did all types of cool tricks in the sky. While I didn’t get any pictures of the planes actually flying, Dan was snapping away. He was in Heaven. (He actually wanted to be a pilot growing up).
Some Pictures From Left to Right:
1. Dan and I on the beach waiting for the planes to fly over!
2. Dan and I actually got to listen in to the United States Air Force Thunderbirds in their cock pit while they were flying over. It was one of the coolest things to be a part of!
3.My mom and I on the beach watching the Air Show.
4. Me, Vicky, and my aunts at dinner. What a fun night it was.
5. Dan and I on top of the Ferris Wheel (which you’ll find out I’m a love for) at the Daytona Beach Boardwalk. If you’re in the area, make sure to check out the Boardwalk. It reminds me of a Jersey Shore style boardwalk that only contains food, fun, and entertainment.
I’m already ready for the next Air Show! If you’re in Daytona Beach in 2014 make sure to check it out!
Hi! I’m Molly. Welcome to my blog. This is something that I have wanted to do for a while now, and am finally working up the courage to start this thing out. I’m new to this process but have been a lover of many blogs for a while now. I’m a recent graduate of the University of Central Florida and have spent many unemployed days dreaming of having my own blog to talk about my recent travels and experiences of my life in here Orlando. This is a learning process for me, so hold tight while I figure it out and I promise you this site will be anything but boring. That picture on the side? Yep, that’s me. I was on a Carnival Cruise (which I’m sure you’ll see my blogging about at some point) celebrating my 23rd birthday with my boyfriend Dan. And Dan? We’ve been dating almost 2 years. You’ll probably see him around on the blog often too. Get ready blogging world, I’m officially making my debut!
