A Weekend in Orlando

Hi friends! This weekend I have been in Orlando visiting my sister Brooke and our grandparents GG and Paw Paw. Greg and I drove down Thursday night and it’s been non-stop fun ever since.

I actually had to work from “home” on Friday so spent all morning and afternoon on my computer at the condo. Before getting to work I had a bowl of Chobani Vanilla greek yogurt topped with blueberries, banana nut granola and a drizzle of honey. GG made me sweet vanilla latte to sip on the side.

Lunchtime brought about a delicious salad full of some of my favorite vegetables. On the side I had watermelon chunks and a couple bites of GG’s bbq pulled pork.

Margaritas were ready as soon as I was done with work. We drank GG’s homemade margs while we waited for Brooke to get home from her internship at SeaWorld so we could go out for a real happy hour at their favorite Mexican restaurant nearby.

Margaritas Round #2. This time the drink was accompanied by a simple Mexican dinner of a chicken quesadilla, beans and rice. All very good! The service was great (it helped that GG and Paw know the servers and owners so well!) and it’s obvious why they like it so much.

Yesterday we spent the morning at SeaWorld’s water park Aquatica then came home for lunch. We all took nice long afternoon naps before heading to our favorite magic/comedy show. GG and Paw have been bringing our family to the show for years and it’s just as funny every time we go. We were served salads and pizza at the show for dinner and enjoyed every bite. 
It was still relatively early when the show wrapped up so we went to walk around Universal Studio’s CityWalk.

One of the first thing’s that caught my eye when we walked in…Cinnabon!! We wandered around for awhile but by the end of the night I returned to get myself a roll.
Heaven. The only place I ever get Cinnabon anymore is in the airport every few years. I was not about to let this opportunity pass by. 
Another margarita for Greg and a giant cinnamon roll for me. Yup, that pretty much sums us up 🙂
