Guess what?!?!



My brother’s fiance, Ashley, asked me this morning! :)

I’ve never been a bridesmaid before. Heck, I’ve never even been in a wedding party before. I’m not 100% sure what comes with the territory besides putting a pretty dress on and walking down the aisle a few steps ahead of the bride, but I’m really excited to be supporting my brother and future sister-in-law on their big day.


By the way, no dates have been officially set yet. They are thinking March 2012 (which in my opinion would be a fab month to get married). It gives them plenty of time to plan, finish school (Ashley has another semester of undergrad and then PT school), and settle a bit before saying I do. :)

Have you been a bridesmaid before? Anything I should know before diving in?

I had a great lunch today with a fellow Orlando blogger at Hot Olives in Winter Park.


Hot Olives recently moved to a brand new location off of Fairbanks and New York Ave. I like that it’s easy to find right on the main road. I also loved the larger space, open interior, and clean, funky design.



The menu was still the same great menu. Lots of delicious salads, sandwiches, and southern classics with a modern twist.


I ordered a cup of the Chicken Tortilla Soup which had large pieces of tortilla chips (instead of just the strips) and a great cheesey topping. Only thing missing was a little extra spice.


I paired the soup with the antipasto appetizer (gotta get those healthy fats in!)


And ignored the crostinis that came with the antipasto in favor of a crusty white roll from the basket served with our meals.


All in all a fabulous meal in a beautiful restaurant with great company.

I dined with Bess who writes the blog The Central Florida Top 5. I’m trying to dive further into the Orlando blogger scene and she’s volunteered to guide me. This girl knows her stuff. :)

Bess’ Blog is great if you are in the Orlando area – or are ever plan to visit. Each week Bess lists the Top 5 events of what to do in or around Orlando and every month she does a monthly break down of what’s coming up. I’m going to start blogging on her site in January covering some of the fitness events in the area. Sounds like fun to me. :)
