Nicole and Andrew have come and gone and now it's time to get back to real life which I'm finding difficult considering all the fun we had with our guests. It was a jam packed visit and we did more eating then anything else. It's the one good thing about Nicole and Andrew leaving is that I don't think my stomach could have handled them being here one more day! Some highlights: We took on and conquered the Kitchen Sink Sundae, we ate and drank our way around Epcot's Food & Wine Festival, we enjoyed a character breakfast at Animal Kingdom, went to the Festival of the Masters at Downtown Disney, had an incredible meal at Jiko at the Animal Kingdom Lodge and then we finished the visit with breakfast at Whispering Canyon Cafe. Whew it was an incredible whirlwind.
Now I have kicked the holiday preparations into high gear. I will be in my craft room working on different holiday themed projects and some homemade gifts for loved ones. I also have started pulling recipes to use for our big Thanksgiving dinner this year and I'm putting a couple recipes aside to take with me to Ohio so I can pitch in there too! It will be a very busy and happy time and I fully intend to enjoy every minute of it especially since I'll be starting a job hunt after the holidays are all said and done.
I haven't made a new recipe this week yet but I think today will be the day. I am so fully of energy. After the food fest this weekend I felt motivated to get back into shape so I did a high impact workout yesterday and today and last night Mike and I went for a walk and I hope to do that again tonight as well. So today I will try to find a delicious but healthy new recipe to try or at least semi-healthy!! I will of course keep you posted. With all of the exciting things happening this season I will be trying to update my blog much more often so stay tuned!!!
