    Photo Challenge: Prolific

    Happy Friday! Any big plans this weekend? It’s been another week where I have been going to sleep too late, so I’m looking forward to sleeping in a little tomorrow morning. I’ve got an early appointment Sunday morning so tomorrow is my only chance! Let’s get to my Friday photo challenge response. Last week’s photo challenge from The Daily Post was “Prolific“. Prolific can mean plentiful, abundant. Whenever I think of the word “prolific”, it makes me think of famous people and their careers – if they produce a lot of work, that is. The photo I’m using is from my trip to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter (you…

    Photo Challenge: A Face in the Crowd

    Happy Friday! We’re supposed to get rain and heavy winds all day today so my original outfit plans, which I was going to document for the blog, got pushed back. But that’s ok, I’ll just shuffle some things around. Looking back at a less dreary time, I’m flashing back to my trip to Florida at the end of 2017. If you’re a regular follower of my blog then you might know that I went to Disney World and Universal Studios at the end of December. It was my first time to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and it did not disappoint. Overall, I love Disney more than Universal Studios, but…

    Foodie Diary: Disney/Universal

    I hope you’re not sick of my travel posts yet, but this is my last one and then it’s back to regular programming! This post has photos of all the food I ate while on vacation last week. Well, relevant food that is – I didn’t think it necessary to post my continental breakfast every day! I’m not going to go in to much detail on each meal because that would take forever, but I will link to the restaurant and tell you the name of each dish!

    Wizarding World of Harry Potter: Part 2

    Yesterday I wrote about the first half of my day at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter last week at Universal Studios Orlando and I mentioned that I had so many pictures that I wanted to share that I had to split the post in two. So I’m back today with Part 2! Forgive me in advance if I write any sentences that don’t make sense. I’m writing this ahead of time (Tuesday night) and I came home from work today with a high fever. I’m taking a sick day tomorrow since my temperature isn’t back to normal yet and I have burst of energy right now – enough to…

    Wizarding World of Harry Potter: Part 1

    On my last full day of vacation, a few of us (it was a family vacation) went to Universal Studios primarily to visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Being a huge Potter fan, I was excited to go and see Hogwarts, Hogsmeade, and Diagon Alley! Although we only spent 1 day there, I took a billion pictures of everything there. They did a superb job at making everything so detailed. Since I took so many photos I’m splitting this visit to the park into two posts just so I don’t inundate you with so many photos. I think I picked out over 50 photos to share with you all…
