Celebrating 30 WDW Favorites

Well, we all have to turn thirty sometimes. Right? RIGHT? Ahem. I’m well-rested from an extended trip to Orlando (thanks to “blizzard” Juno)… even a week later. So I say that’s a pretty good trip, huh? I plan on talking about my November and January trips super soon (I’m going to stretch out these recaps […]

Kill Refurb Marry: Food & Wine Festival Booths

I had such a blast reading entries for last month’s TRANSPORTATION-themed Kill Refurb Marry so I am just as excited to see how creative and opinionated everyone is with this month’s. I love Food & Wine festival. It the first time of year I ever went to the parks with my husband, and it just […]

Dressing for the Park: Epcot’s Future World

Sometimes when I need to get into the writing mood, I do a fun “sprint” which could be anything from “online browsing” my favorite shops or putting together a playlist. If I put my mind to something else, my jump into writing is always smoother. That’s how this post was born. I hadn’t even realized […]

Making the Most of Food & Wine

I’ve been smitten with the Food & Wine Festival since I first experienced it back in October 2008. What’s not to like? Plenty of options for small plates (which means sharing & more opportunity to try everything), champagne, desserts, and, of course, beer. With all the excitement bubbling for this year’s festival (the food pictures […]

Instax Gratification at Walt Disney World

My parents did really well with my Christmas present this year. I was so surprised and excited to get a Fujifilm Instax Mini, a darling little camera I’ve been wanting for awhile, in my stocking. It was definitely the perfect companion for our March road trip from New York to Florida, but with limited film, […]

Welcome to another round of KILL, REFURB, MARRY with Melissa from Mouse on the Mind and I. The last time we congregated at this very spot, Melissa and I were chatting with you about Animal Kingdom and its highs and lows. That was in April, folks. We’ve been due back here for a long time […]

Short and Sweet: A Stop at Tutto Gusto

Facts about me: I love a cute, cozy bar. I knew after we spent a quick lunch at Tutto Gusto last June that James and I would have to make our way back. The insane crowds during our March Epcot day made this happen. (Perhaps, I should thank them for this one thing. Perhaps.) This […]

Where’s My Brunch?

This week, James and I headed to Rosa Mexicano in Union Square for brunch. Stuffed french toast, eggs with chorizo, white sangria with cucumber, pomegranate martinis, fresh table side guacamole and churros for dessert. It was absolutely delicious and so filling… I could have used a stretcher to get me outside. Like our conversations inevitably do, we […]

Hit or Miss: Walt Disney World Trip March 2013

A week ago, James and I were watching Illuminations and munching on goodies from the new bakery in France. Tonight, I’m sitting in my pajamas waiting for Smash to come on TV. I’ve had park music on endlessly since our return, and while it’s not completely filling my empty little heart (ha), it’s softening the […]

WDW Attractions: Kill — Refurb — Marry with Mouse on the Mind

Thanks to the Disney Hipster Podcast I was roped into a game of Boff, Marry, Kill a few weeks ago. Paired with my significant other, we each had to pick three Disney characters for the other. Don’t worry, friends. I tried to stay very innocent because I am very innocent. (I hear Britney Spears in […]
