    Dancing to Rascal Flatts sounds like a fun afternoon to me! I don’t find Ellen too funny, but I can’t get over the fact that she’s 50 and could pass for like 35.

    I LOVE Ellen! What a fun afternoon. Rascal Flats is my favorite band, too. Jealous. 🙂

    That sandwich restaurant sounds right up my alley, I’d love a place like that in MN.

    Every time I see Menchies featured on your blog I long for some Fro Yo! I need to get some asap.

    I’m a big Rascal Flats fan as well – it’s awesome that the concert ended up being free!!

    I LOVE Ellen–I was just telling my roommate today that I wish she was our graduation speaker!! Tropical fruit flavored savory sandwiches are the best. I love pineapple in savory sandwiches.

    Awesome day!!! And how cool you were that close to Ellen!

    I used to live right smack dab across the street from Universal. Right off of Vineland road! I miss it sometimes!

    Your sandwich looked amazing!!!

    Very cool! My roommates and I used to plan our college schedules around Ellen so we’d all have lunch when her show was on. It was awesome. 😀

    How cool that you got to meet Ellen!!! That sucks that it started raining, but still– very cool!

    I love leeks. My mom makes a leek and onion pie that is so good.

    Your lunch with fro yo looked really yummy. I have seen the same type of fro yo place while I was in Vegas a few weeks ago. Anyway super cool about the Ellen show.

    Looks like such a great day! Especially that Menchies yogurt. I still have yet to find a place like that!

    I want to come to Orlando just for the self service Fro-Yo places. I am so jealous! The Ellen Show looked fun too, even if you got rained on. Rascal Flatts is worth it!

    I never thought to add yogurt to a soup, but it makes complete sense. A healthier way to add creaminess. mmm. I will have to try this out soon.

    Love Ellen! Glad you at least got to see her doing what she does best LOL I’m sure you know but she does Universal every year at this time. One day I’ll get there.

    Sure wish we lived somewhere that had healthy restaurants close by! We don’t have a lot out here in the burbs but Chicago I’m sure has some great choices.

    Your mom’s soup looks and sounds awesome!

    Isn’t Mario Lopez so much SHORTER in person?! Haha, I remember that’s what I thought when I saw him in Vegas (he was taping something at Planet Hollywood).

    I’m so envious of all the amazing fro-yo places in Orlando, and of the fact that you got to see Ellen. I adore her. The potato and leek soup looks amazing too.
