I'm back!










I'm home! Give me a bit to get back into the swing of things my brain is still on vacation lol! We had a wonderful time, I'll post pics here and there through out the week. We stayed at the Star Island Resort in Kissimmee Florida thanks to my parents for sharing their condo with us it was a 3 bedroom 2 full bath so there was plenty of room with great views of wildlife, pools, clubhouses, tennis courts, Lake Cecile and tons of other fun stuff. We spent Sunday and Monday shopping, checking out the local sites and roaming around the resort checking out all the ammenities and activities, Tuesday at Disney World and had lunch with Winnie the Pooh and friends at the Crystal Palace. We did a lot of shade hopping because it was quite hot but still enjoyable. Noah had so much fun riding the kiddie rides and watching the parade come through the streets every few hours it was really exciting! He's still talking about it! Wednesday we went to Chef Mickey's Cafe at a resort in Disney for breakfast with Mickey and friends which was probably the highlight of it all for Noah, he had so much fun and the food was incredible! Thursday we drove into Cocoa Beach and stopped off at the Kennedy Space Center for some pictures but with plans to spend the day at the beach we didn't stay long but it was really neat! Cocoa Beach was awesome! Absolutely gorgeous and although I'm not a big fan of actually going into the ocean I did it anyways and even boogy boarded a bit, whiped out once lol! Even though we didn't go out very far maybe just up to our waist we still saw several Sting Rays swim on by which was really cool! Didn't see any sharks thank god! Noah barely dipped a toe in the water because he was really concerned about sharks so him and my nephew Giovanni played in the sand all day. Ron Jon Surf Shop was really cool and down town Cocoa Beach is awesome and full of cool shops and resturants. On the way to Cocoa Beach we did see a croc on the side of the road swimming around in some swampy looking water by the Space Center which was cool and lot's of big black turtles. Friday we visted the Queen Mary of the Universe Shrine which is this absolutely stunning church in Orlando also stopped into the Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampeed to check out the horses and pretty much all week long when we weren't out doing all of this stuff we were paddle boating, swimming, singing karaoke, eating great food, feeding ducks, doing lot's of shopping (had to buy another suitcase to get everything home!!! yikes!) and enjoying the great weather. We had a great flight both ways. Noah loved the airplane rides and did terrific. There was just so much to do and so much more we wanted to do that we didn't get to so we've jotted them down and are looking forward to our next visit! Feels good to be home although I do miss all the palm trees :) It's super rainy and gloomy today so I'm just working on updating the site a bit and answering a TON of emails. Please be patient I'm slowly making my way through them all. I'm planning on having some new things for bead specials and new joolz up at the end of the week and I'll be putting a new Freebie up! Check back soon!
