I just happen to like the look of the walkway as it leads to the Castle.

Disney Resort of the Week- Disney's All Star Music Resort at Walt Disney World

After taking a week off from this segment, we are featuring a resort that we have not stayed at.  The value resorts are not normally my cup of tea, as we would rather not go as often, save our money and stay at a moderate or a deluxe resort.

All Star Music Resort seems like a very fun place to stay.  All the music icons that are all over the place make great photo opportunities.

FOODIE FRIDAY! Holiday Turkey at Earl of Sandwich- Have You Indulged?

I have so many friends who rave about the food at Earl of Sandwich, and we have never eaten there.  The one thing I hear the most about is the Holiday Turkey sandwich.  It really sounds good, and we will have to try it eventually!

Fireworks Friday - we were packed in the middle of Main Street on our last night to watch wishes. with that many people around you, you just need to embrace that a phone is going to get in your shot. it worked , for the most part, that you can actually see the long exposure on the phone from the person taking a video of the fireworks. from Moments of the Magic by Joe Diebold.

FOODIE FRIDAY! Lobster Mac and Cheese....Have You Indulged?

Baked Lobster Macaroni and Cheese!  Those two things in the same sentence, well....they had me!

The Beastly Kiosk (formerly known as the Safari Kiosk) is a small counter service area located in Discovery Island in Disney's Animal Kingdom park.There is no seating so this is simply a grab and go counter offering quick snacks.  Grab and Go Lobster!  I like that!

Throwback Thursday! Three Years Ago Today!

So, how time flies........right?  Yup, Paul and I do have fun together, and isn't that what spending you life together is all about?  I have never met anyone that makes me laugh like he does, and that's why I love him so much!  
So, three years ago today.....................

This is what we were doing!    Oh, to be back there again!!! This is what we woke up to on full day #1 of the cruise aboard the Disney Dream in 2012!  The blue water and blue sky of Nassau, Bahamas.  We took a tour on a glass bottom boat.  It was a lot of fun........
then we went into town and had some fun with pirates!  

                                                    Yeah.........we are just silly like that!
