Happy Friday! I hope you all have wonderful weekend plans. We are going to have a bit more of a relaxing weekend. I am going to do some at home pampering and just relax. Lucas turns 18 months old on Sunday, I can’t believe how big he is getting, so I am trying to decide if we will celebrate with cookies or ice cream.

We are reminiscing about our trip to Orlando a few weeks ago. I am sharing pictures from our last day there. We just relaxed at the hotel, which we stayed at the JW Marriott Grand Lakes. This was our first time staying at a JW Marriott and the hotel was amazing. There are so many restaurants on site and it connected to the Ritz Carlton which really doubled the size of the hotel, including the food and dining options. The hotel offers free shuttles to the Disney parks, which is very convenient. The last day we ate at the buffet breakfast in the hotel and it was sooo good. We always love ordering custom omelette’s and my diet went out the door that day. I had the works of bacon, ham & cheese. My husband sticked to his diet and ordered an egg white and spinach omelette. We ordered Lucas mickey mouse shaped pancakes, from the suggestion of our waiter, and a cheese omelette, he loved both so much. He never eats my pancakes, but he loved theirs (of course…). The buffet also had an array of eggs, hash browns, croissants, etc… We battled the stomach bug at the beginning of the trip and we were finally feeling better by the end, so we went all out.

The hotel has a lazy river, which to tell you the truth was one of the main draws to stay at the hotel. It was a lot of fun, we went on the river several times. We got Lucas a baby raft but he just wanted to stay on my lap whenever we went on the lazy river. We also spent a lot of time just playing in the pool, Lucas loved the water and it was just a nice relaxing day. The best part about Orlando is everything is so kid friendly so all the hotels are really kid friendly. Our hotel offered a kid activities center, a playground and really shallow pools so I felt Lucas was always safe when he played in the water, but of course I was always by his side. I can’t wait to go back to Orlando when he is a bit older, maybe again around 3 or 4.

Happy Friday and have a wonderful weekend! If you didn’t get a chance to watch our travel diary to Orlando, watch it below, it recaps our entire trip. Xoxo.

Sharing our day in Epcot when we went to Disney World a few weeks ago. The one thing that I like about Epcot is that it is a little less busy than Magic Kingdom, all the rides we went on had a 15 minute wait or less, and there was just more space for Lucas to run around. Lucas had his worst meltdown / tantrum to date at Epcot, I think specifically in the country “Marrakesh” but we made it through, besides that it was a really fun day. My favorite part about Epcot is always the different countries. I love to travel so much I really love how Epcot really transports you to each country. Our favorites are London, Paris & Germany. I went a few years back, pre hubby, and did “drinks around the world” with a girlfriend of mine and it was so much fun. This time we just had A beer in Germany haha, how times have changed.

We were still getting over the stomach bug so I didn’t eat much here, but I want to go back and eat in every single country, I love all the exotic foods. If you didn’t get a chance, take a look at my Magic Kingdom post and below is our travel diary highlighting our entire trip. We are already trying to plan our next vacation.

From the pics it looks like I wore three different outfits but I had my new floral kimono top from Forever21, which is a fav of mine right now, and I wore the same black jacket that is my favorite and has been on repeat, and a grey Forever21 cardigan. Going to Florida in February, it was cold in the mornings and then the warmest in the afternoon and then cold again at night. So we had to bring several layers for all of us because we spent most of the day / early evening at the parks.

I hope everyone is getting used to the daylight savings time, I always feel extra tired this first week and Lucas’ schedule is so thrown off right now. Hopefully a few more days and we will be back on track.

Sharing our pictures from Disney World! It was a quick getaway for 5 days, but it was so much fun. Lucas LOVES Mickey Mouse so much so it was so great to see his face when he met Mickey Mouse. While we were on line he was smiling so much and then we got up close to Mickey he got so shy, it was so cute. He didn’t cry meeting any of the characters, we met Mickey, Goofy, Donald and then some characters throughout the parks like Snow White & Jasmine. Disney / Orlando is so big, I feel like you need weeks in Orlando to see everything. We can’t wait to go back.
