A Weekend At Disney - Trip Report 2

Our day a Magic Kingdom had come to an end....my sister in law and niece were waiting for us back at the resort so baby girl didn't want to stick around for the fireworks!  We were all hungry so we decided to take a ride to Downtown Disney to have dinner.




We checked the menu at T-Rex but the prices were a little too high for us right now - we were all on a budget and $15 for burger wasn't a good idea!  So we kept walking and found a Pollo Campero and they had very affordable prices so we stopped here.  Baby girl got a 2 pc chicken platter that included french fries, and I got a chicken salad wrap which could have really served 2 people - it was huge!  Total cost including our drink was $19.99, not too bad and since my wrap was so big, I save half of it for lunch the next day!  We finished eating stopped at Harley Davidson - I got my hubby a shirt and we went back to the resort.  It was a very cold night - I was very happy to be back at the resort where I put up the heat....LOL!

The next morning I was up early since we had all day to enjoy and the park of choice today was Epcot!  I had also promised baby girl that if the weather was warm, I would come back to the resort in the afternoon so she can go swimming.
We got dressed and out to we went to get on the boat that takes us to Epcot!  I was able to see more of the resort and I loved it all....absolutely beautiful!!






















We entered Epcot through International Gateway between United Kingdom and France!  The park looked so peaceful as we walked in.....It had just opened so there wasn't much of a crowd.  We decided to start with Future World and visit the Living Seas first, so off we went to see Nemo and Crush!!  But first we saw that the Character Spot had no wait, so we stopped to see Mickey, Minnie and Goofy....then we continued.




























































When we finished having our fun with Crush, Nemo and all their under sea friends, we made our way to Mission Space.  Baby girl and I had never been on this ride!  The last time we were here, she was too small to ride so I stayed behind with her while hubby & my son rode it.  I remember them saying it was awesome, so I had to ride it now.  I promised her it wouldn't be bad - we even went on the green side....she was still nervous.  Ofcourse it was fun & as soon as the ride was over she asked to ride it again :/ LOL - she loved it!! The wait for green was still at 5 minutes so we got in line again!!!

A snack before blasting off into space.....giant chocolate chip cookie!



Happier about the 2nd ride!!



Well....this was lots of fun but time to walk some more......


Now I'm sure you've already noticed all the flowers and beautiful topiaries plus if you are a Disney Parks fan you also know that I am visiting during the Flower & Garden Festival.  Everything looks so beautiful!!
Here are some more pictures I took before we got on Test Track!















Now time to get on Test Track!



Here is baby girl's creation:



Here she scanned her magic band to upload her car and we boarded our car...



Here we go......


Test Track was awesome and we would've ridden it again had it not been a 70 minute wait

3 hours waiting for Ana & Elsa - exhausting & boring
Finally meeting them & seeing baby girl's smile - PRICELESS!!

On our way out, we met up with an unexpected character.....Wendy!!!
Yay - we had never met her!!!!

Taking a Detour!!!!

So we are up & out of my dad's house by 7am.  It was hard and I tried to leave quickly, my poor baby girl even cried-I felt soooo bad for her.  Usually I'm the only one crying, but she really didn't want to leave :(  So,  we said goodbye-hope to be back soon (permanently) and we drove off!
About an hour out, we stopped for breakfast and had to practically make a run for it, LOL! There were like 20 buses full of kids!! By the time we got inside, the Dunkin Doughnuts line was like a mile long-ugh, there goes my coffee!  So we had no other choice but to eat burgers at Wendy's, everything else had super long lines that we didn't want to wait on!
We grabbed our burgers and left.  A little while later Laz asks me if I want to stop at Clearwater Aquarium.  At this point, I'm not 100% sure-I was sad about leaving & felt like just being home to calculate & come up with good, concrete reasons to move to Florida.  On the other hand, I really wasn't looking…

Weekend Trip to Niagara Falls, Canada~Part 2

Here is our 2nd day in Niagara Falls.  We started our morning with breakfast in the hotel restaurant.  After breakfast we headed over to Marineland.  This park was nothing spectacular, but it was a nice little trip.  We saw a dolphin show, saw several other animals, killer whales, fed Beluga whales and rode 1 or 2 rides.  Again, nothing spectacular but it was fun.  A lot of walking, and our favorite part was feeding the beluga whales - they were so cute!
The dolphin show was also fun!  Its been a long time since we've seen dolphins in action.














After all the walking, we were run down and hungry.  We headed back to the hotel to shower and prepare for our dinner at Massimmo's Italian restaurant.  The view was beautiful!  I enjoyed dinner, but hubby and baby girl didn't.  I like to try new things and unfortunately the other 2 don't - and there wasn't much on the menu that they liked.  Baby girl had Ceasar Salad, hubby had Minestrone soup and I had Linguine Carbonara.


New Week~New Program

Here we go!!  I took a week off to regroup and decide what to do next.  I really have to say that having Beach Body on Demand is the BEST!!!

There are so many programs and nutrition plans to follow.  So since I recently completed Transform 20, I was thinking of doing it again, but I've been curious about 80 Day Obsession for quite some time.  I haven't attempted this program because at first, I felt it wasn't for me.  The workouts are longer than I'm used to and the timed nutrition is challenging for me, but I finally let curiosity get the best of me.  I'm going to give it a shot!

I started Sunday with my meal prep!  I was a bit overwhelmed at first, but I followed the sample nutrition plan and was able to get my shopping list and meals put together.



So for my first week, I have every meal planned out.  Not prepared, since I'd rather make my eggs for breakfast fresh each morning.  Most of my meals have been prepped!

My days are set to begin at 4:30AM with my sh…
