Jam Packed Day

by Meghann on April 5, 2009

Wow! It has been a crazy jam packed, random weekend in Orlando. I have been on the go all day and am just now having a chance to sit down and enjoy some peace and quiet before the work week starts. At least I always know I’ve gotten everything I can out of my weekend. :)

The craziness started this weekend when Melissa and I took the boys on their first field trip to Ikea.

It took us over an hour to walk through the humongous store and pick out what we would want in our pretend future house.

I decided I need a neon fish net canopy over my bed in my future tropical paradise room.

And Melissa was desperately lusting after these bird curtains.

After gushing over all of the cool decorations we didn’t needs and spending more money then was appropriate on bowls and plates – hello new blog toys – we were famished and made a trip to Whole Foods.

I got 1.19 lbs of food from the Hot Bar and enjoyed every bite.

My favorite out of the bunch was the BBQ Seitan. I believe if you cover anything with BBQ Sauce its going to be fantastic! :)

After Whole Foods we said out good byes to Melissa and Brad then Derek and I randomly decided we were going to go Universal and purchase annual passes.

Actually the conversation went a little something like this…

Derek – “What do you want to know now.”

Me – “You know if we had those annual passes to Universal we could just go now.”

Derek – “Why don’t we.”

Me – ” Ok, Let’s do it!”

So at 3:00pm we went to Universal and purchased a 2-park Annual Pass.

They had a really good special going on that we could not resist. So, don’t worry we didn’t blow the bank. Plus, Derek and I decided this would be part of his birthday present (his birthday is on Wednesday!).

Derek had never been to Islands of Adventure before so I spent the rest of the afternoon introducing him to all this rides and just having a silly, fun time.

My favorite ride at Islands of Adventures is Spiderman. What’s yours?

(p.s. my hair was STRAIGHT this morning, gotta love that good ole Florida humidity)

Roller Coasters are how we roll.

Around 5:00 we bought an overpriced fruit cup and had a melon snack.

Look what I saw while I was in the park.

They had major construction going on for the new Harry Potter Island of the park (!!!) I can’t wait!!!

After a few hours of riding rides and playing tourist, Derek and I were ready to go home. We were both very hungry at this point and looking for something quick and simple for dinner. I pulled into Pita Pit on the way home and got a Whole Wheat Bobganosh Pita.

As always I loaded on the veggies. With the Bobganosh I had Tomatoes, Spinach, Cucumber, Mushrooms, Jalepenos,Red Onion, Black Olives, Feta & Oregano.

It was huge and oh so good. Just what I needed.

After a trip to Publix and a few moments of rest I had a full out sample of Jasmine’s Chocolate Chip Coconut Blondies.

Oh this baby was good!!

I hope you are all pumped for my Blogging Bake Sale tomorrow! Don’t forget it starts tomorrow morning at 11:00am sharp. Don’t be late! ;)

Great Friends

Last night, as I was surrounded by friends, alcohol and food, I realized that I am truly happy at the place of my life I am at right now. I made a smart decision moving to Orlando and it has truly paid off. The past year I have made some wonderful friends that make everything more »
