Rachel's Bridal Shower

This past weekend I went back to my parents for my sister's bridal shower. My mom hosted this one and I'm hosting another one later in April. It was a lot of fun. My mom planned a bunch of minute to win it games she found on Pinterest. And we had some great food from our favorite restaurant.

New Apartment

We signed the lease to our new apartment this past Friday. We're so excited to move in May 1. It's a bigger place, nicer development, and better property managers. I can't wait to share photos!

Weekend Recap

This weekend was an eventful one with Valentine's Day and Andrew's birthday. We both had to work on top of that. Friday we went to a French restaurant and it was amazing! Andrew got me this kate spade bag I've been eyeing.

He also ordered 2 dozen roses in a Waterford crystal vase but 1800-Flowers seriously sucks. They called my cell phone 6pm Thursday to tell me the item he ordered was no longer available. So not only did they ruin the surprise, they called after business hours so he couldn't even try a local florist. They sent me a really pitiful "apology bouquet" today.

Sunday was his birthday. I made a chocolate with peanut butter chip cake with peanut butter cream cheese frosting and chocolate buttercream.

Have a great week everyone!

Valentine's Day Decor

I kept it simple this year for Valentine's Day decor. I wish I had more time to craft and decorate but this will do.

Branches, hearts, and white candle holders are from IKEA. The lights and tea light holders are from Target.

Happy February

Hello everyone. Sorry I haven't been blogging lately. I've been adjusting to my final semester and new schedule. I probably won't be blogging that much but I'm going to try for at least 1-2 posts per week.

The newest thing for us lately has been our new kitten. We adopted her from the animal rescue league. She is the sweetest little girl. We named her Lucy.

We're still dealing with the loss of our sweet Zola. It's hard not to cry when I think about her. We had her cremated and got her ashes when we got back from Disney World. They also did an imprint of her paw print.

I got her paw print tattooed on my left ankle. Every time I look at it I think of her.  I wish things like this didn't happen. She was such a sweet cat.

Disney World Food

I'm finally getting to my food review post. Sorry it's so late. We had so much good food on our trip so I'll try to touch on everything! 

Animal Kingdom
We ate at a counter service restaurant for lunch. I got a pulled pork sandwich that was excellent! I also got a Mickey bar after lunch. 

For dinner we ate at the Tusker House. It was buffet style of African food. It was pretty good but not my favorite of all the restaurants we tried. Their beer was good though ;)

Magic Kingdom
We ate at Cinderella's Royal Table for a character breakfast. The food was delicious and the restaurant was gorgeous. 


Main Street Confectionary was also a fun stop! Check out their display cases:

I also got a Mickey pretzel. 

We also had dinner at Be Our Guest. This restaurant was amazing. I can't say enough good things about it. 

Napkin folded like a rose
New York Strip Steak
The steak was amazing! It had a delicious butter herb sauce on it. Wish I could recreate it at home!

Dessert case
Triple chocolate cupcake
The Grey Stuff

We ate and drank so much at Epcot. We walked around the world showcase and sampled stuff from most "countries." 

Grey goose citron slush and Grand marnier orange lush. The lemonade one was the best! I had several ;)

Cannoli from "Italy"

Beer sampler at Rose and Crown
Teppan Edo Candlelight Processional Package
Club cool
Hollywood Studios
We ate at 50s Primetime Cafe in Hollywood Studios. It was so good! I got the pot roast and we got cupcakes for dessert. 

Chef Mickey's
We had another character breakfast at Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary. It was a huge breakfast buffet. It was delicious! I definitely recommend this breakfast as well as the Cinderella Castle one. 

Downtown Disney
We went to Goofy's Candy Company here. I made my own Mickey Rice Krispie treat. Mine was dipped in milk chocolate and covered in peanut butter chips. 

They also had these awesome "cakes."

The Boardwalk
We went to Beaches and Cream for some huge ice cream sundaes. 

No way Jose

I had some of the best food at Disney World! Definitely make a list of everything you want to try. I did and saved it in numbers in Dropbox and kept it on my phone to make sure I got everything. 

What's your favorite Disney World food?
