shingle creek staycation

i’m not going to lie, definitely still wishing that i was on my local staycation. it’s really amazing how even though you can only be 20 minutes from home, you still feel a million miles away – and that’s exactly what we had during our time at loews sapphire falls on friday night (see recap…

a little wine and sapphire…

nothing beats kicking off a staycation at one of the newest hotels at universal orlando, loews sapphire falls resort AND attending an event all in the same evening?! but first, i’m going to have to start with sapphire falls…what a beautiful resort. easing into island time, you truly feel like you are being transported into…

happy 1 year – eatstk

yesterday was STK at disney springs first anniversary…and naturally, keith and i decided to have a date night at STK to join in the celebration. well, i actually can’t take much credit, keith impulsively decided to make a “surprise” reservation the night before – letting me know where we were going after he made the reservation. ironically,…

meeting a master somm

well, it’s not every day that you can say that you’ve meet a master sommelier?! and that’s exactly what happened to keith and i last friday when on a whim we decided to eat at flying fish at disney’s boardwalk inn and villas resort. initially wanting to head over to disney springs, our decision quickly…

take me out to the ballgame

date night – disney resort style

la nouba

well, the holiday reminiscing continues…and ironically enough – that means another cirque du soleil show to highlight. as most of you have read already, over the holiday keith and i went to see kurios: cabinet of curiosities under the grand chapiteau in miami. as we were driving back from the show, we realized that we absolutely had…

kurios

wow, can you all believe that it is already creeping up to the middle of january? it always seems crazy to me how time can fly by in an instant and how the holidays seem like they were so long ago. well, we know that isn’t the case – but i still love reflecting on…

surprise date night

wow, am i one lucky girl. keith decided last thursday that we were going on a surprise date on friday evening. literally the only thing i knew was that we were going to be driving to tampa. so needless to say, when friday rolled around i was extremely excited to find out what we were going…
