This is a little late, but your new house is absolutely gorgeous! That's a bummer the Titanic museum was such a bust. I love that movie too, it's just one of those movies you can never watch too many times! I love the part about the slab of ice though

Tell them to come here in the winter and we can give them all the ice to rub they want. We could probably make a travel package for them.

You have just given me an idea. I think I will start a business selling small pieces of ice from the iceberg that sunk the Titanic. I should have the website up in a day or so.

Looks like you seemed to enjoy Universal Studios more than Islands of Adventures! (: Love the picture of you under the "Betty Boop Eat Your Heart" photo op. Very cute :D I've heard a lot about that Rip Ride Rock it! Coaster at Universal. It looks really cool, but I don't think I could ever go on it, especially with the line you said was there O.O Sorry the Titanic museum wasn't that great, I'm guessing most things would be reproductions since the ship sunk and I think by the time, they do over to check it out, there wasn't a lot left that could be put in a museum Just saying but I think that does ruin the whole purpose of the museum, like you said. LOL at your comment on the slab of ice! And I totally agree with you on Five Guys! That place is A-MAZING!!! Heaven on a bun is right! Can't wait to read about what you did, now that you left Universal!

Love the Universal shots and yay on getting your fix of Dieticus Cokius!

Yay on riding Rip Rock It - that sounds like a fun ride! Boo on the video being on John's side instead of yours.

Being a big Titanic fan I was looking forward to reading about your review of the museum. It's a shame it was not what you expected

Love all your museum pics. Hope you get to Disney World soon

I had a feeling that was why you were sad! I think I might be the same way if we ever do a few days in Universal. To me, going to Orlando means going to Disney, because the rest of Orlando doesn't appeal to me - at.all. (I used to live there and hated it) When I'm at Disney, I don't want to leave for even a second. I like being in the Disney bubble, and I just don't know how I'd feel to have it "burst".

Congrats on the house, it's beautiful!

Ugh, that Titanic museum sounds like such a disappointment. It's too bad, I know you were looking forward to it!

LOL, so cute that you wanted to name your kid Josephine because of Titanic! Oh, wait...you don't still, do you? I love that movie too, every time it's on I watch it, I love Kate Winslet in that movie, she's so beautiful! I love her in almost anything...except that Mildred whatever miniseries she just did on HBO...ugh, that was awful...

Anyway! The Disney outlet sounds awesome, I really want to go there sometime on our trip, I hope I can fit it in during the 10 days we are there! I'm sorry you were missing Disney though...I don't think I could be in FL for very long before I started getting anxious for Disney!

OMG I LOVE Five Guys!!

First of all, your new house is absolutely beautiful! Congratulations!

That roller coaster sounds awesome! I would have had the same reaction as you.

HAHAHA what a fail that museum was! "Oh my gracious, it's COLD!" uhhh...DUH. Brain freezeeee. LOL.

I'm glad you found happiness in Disney merchandise. I totally know how you feel though.

YAYY for Five Guys. Nothin' like a heavenly burger to cheer you up!

Can't wait to hear where you went next!

I'm just getting caught up, that is so cool you saw the actors filming the commercial! I know exactly which commercial, it's been on a lot lately now that it's July.

I agree about Butterbeer too...I wish they would sell it in normal stores.

I am all caught up...

I love the resort. Its sooo beautiful! Aww congrats on the house. It looks astonishing! I think you may need to take some pictures inside. I would be angry about the museum, really angry. All we can say is lesson learned.
