Congrats on the photo booth!! And your dress inspiration photos are beautiful. I started following some of your boards on pinterest as well.

I would like to hear more about your floral consultation. Since I am not local to Florida. I feel like I can only find so many vendors through online searches. Sure, I can type in Orlando wedding florists, but what if there is a better one that is willing to travel?! Maybe it is just me, I am obsessed with knowing all the information possible before I can make up my mind. But I took a look at their website and they do some gorgeous things.

Can't wait to hear more of your plans!

YOU WON A PHOTO BOOTH!!!!! Happy dance, happy dance Apparently when you do when, you win BIG!

Aside form that, which is hard to beat, I like the flowers you found at the show, very simple and elegant and roses are so beautiful.

Also, all of the dresses you posted are lovely and I adore your inspiration. I think you should have the princessey look b/c it's Disney and you are right, you're only going to have this chance once. I am stalking your pinterest boards now too...thanks for giving me somehting to do I love new sites.
Anywho, I am like you, I feel kind of odd in a strapless gown, and I HATE my arms so I'm pretty uncomfortable in my dress sometimes because it's strapless. Although, I do wear strapless things sometimes, I still am very picky about it. I like the overlay ideas, not a huge fan of cap sleeves, but that's just because of personal experience...I think they tend to make someone look bigger than they are unless you weigh 3 pounds and have skinny arms. But ignore my personal dilemma lol...I think you have some great dress ideas and I am excited to see what you choose.

Be back soon to read more!

I commend you for going to a bridal shower! I went to one at Benvenuto's and it was so overwhelming! It was fun though and we had so much cake!

I love the floral inspiration! ALSO, JMorgan is an AWESOME florist. I'm the Moderator on the SoFla Knot board and JMorgan has great reviews!

Aww, such a cute gift for your FG! Just love Julie Andrews!

Congrats on the photo booth!! that's awesome!!
Thank you! I hope I find one that looks right on me. I'm not tall (5 foot 5) so a poofy dress could swallow me up but we'll see. I hope not!

That's too bad the bridal show you went to was overwhelming. I would definitely reccommend the Perfect Wedding Guide ones if they're all like the one I went to. It had plenty to see but wasn't too big so it didn't overwhelm. We had to start saying no to the cake. We were stuffed!

I'm glad JMorgan has great reviews! I know the work I've seen is beautiful and Jacqueline was really friendly so I hope it's at least comparable in price to Disney.

I love Julie Andrews, too. She is the epitome of class.

Thanks! I'll look for you on Pinterest.

I totally understand wanting to research all of your options. I feel the same way! I will definitely post all about the consultation when we go so you can get all the details! Their stuff really is gorgeous.

Thank you! It really is a huge savings. Honestly, a photo booth is a splurge that we probably wouldn't have gone for if we hadn't won it. There are just other places the money would go. It will be so much fun to have at the reception and maybe the pictures can be our favors if we need to save some money?

Have I mentioned how much I love your VR photos? Lol.

I thought you might like the dresses. I lovelovelove the Cinderella you wore as well. I'm all about the tulle!

Apparently the winning big thing is true! Lol. Still shocked.

I'm glad you like the floral, too. I was in love!

You're right. It's Disney so how can I NOT be a princess?!

Do you have a pinterest? If you do I'll try to find you but if not you so should! It's amazing for wedding stuff! Thanks for following me!

We are alike because I really hate my arms, too! It's just one of those things for me. I get what you're saying about the cap sleeves. Sometimes they can make your arms look BIGGER which is SO not what I want. I figure I can try them just in case they magically look wonderful. Lol.

I don't have a pinterest but I have heard so much about it and how addictive it is. Maybe I will sign up today.

I agree, you should at least try the cap sleeves and see how they look, they might actually be a good idea. Let me know. xoxo.

Hi Lindsay! I followed you over from my PJ!

Let me start by saying that I LOVE your proposal story. SO SWEET!

Second, I love the picture of you as Maleficent! I am so jealous that you get to go to MNSSHP every year.

And finally, congrats on the photo booth! That is so exciting!

I can't wait to read more!!!

Yay, Pinterest! It really helps me remember things for later.

I'll definitely try as many options for sleeves as I can and report back!

Hi! I'm loving your TR so I'm flattered that you're here!

Since I wrote on your TR about getting pictures with the character you're dressed as I thought you might appreciate this:



It was taken on my phone so it's not the best quality but I was so excited that she had me copy her pose! I was like a mini Maleficent

Thanks for your kind words and for reading!

Back from Disney

Hi, everyone! This isn't really an update but just a quick post since we just got back from Disney! I'm always sad to leave but we had a great time with our friends so I can't complain. I'm going to do a quick TR but I want to wait to get some pictures from the other people in our group. I have to say that I couldn't stop thinking about Kristen and Tricia on Saturday and how they were both becoming a MRS on that day!

I will say that the Expedition Everest Challenge was super fun and I finished the 5k/obstacle portion in 36 MINUTES!!! That's a great time for me! Being someone who used to HATE running and having just finished the couch to 5k program I am really proud of myself for running the whole thing. That was my goal so mission accomplished!

I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!

Everst 5k Trip Report Part 1

Heeeeello, everyone! Iíve been kind of MIA for a while but I promise Iíve been around and trying to keep up with all of your updates. I guess now that itís been more than a week since we got back I should tell you about our trip! Iím gonna try to just pump it all out now since it was a quick trip and not too much wedding stuff went on. To be honest I just fell in love reading all of your TRs (wedding related or not) and now love writing my own!

Day One:

It was Friday and DF and I both worked full days at work before getting on the road. All of our friends had already gotten into town and we were itching to get there. We got on the road right after work and got to Disney by dinner time. My friend Ashley (a bridesmaid) works for Diamond Resorts so she got us a really nice 2 bedroom villa at Grande Villas Resort. It had a full kitchen with everything you could need, a master bedroom with a huge bathroom, another bedroom with 2 twins, and then a big pullout couch. We had 9 people in the room and were pretty comfortable. We want to stay there again when we go for MNSSHP but weíll probably get the 3 bedroom for a little more space.


All the girls in our room!


This is a good idea of what our group is like.

Once we met up with everyone at our temporary home, we all headed out to DTD for dinner at Raglan Road. I had never eaten there before so I was glad the group chose it. We met up with some more friends so we ended up with a group of 11. I ordered Mammyís Roast Chicken and it was incredible! Their menu describes it as ďLemon thyme roasted half chicken with mashed potatoes and natural jusĒ. It seems like a pretty boring dish but it was DELICIOUS and many other people agreed.



Oh, and their bread and Guiness reduction dip were AMAZING! We devoured that stuff! We had a really great time at dinner. We had a pretty decent view of the musicians and the dancers too so it made for a really fun time.











Sorry about the flash blast on that last one! After dinner we all went to bed. The next day was race day!!!

OMG I LOVE the picture of you and Maleficent! Thank you so much for sharing it!!!

We went to Raglan Road for the first time on our wedding trip with all of our friends that were there for the wedding. We loved it and will definitely be going back!! The chicken you had looks yummy (it's definitely a bad idea to look at pictures of food while you are hungry...).

Can't wait to read more!

I'm glad you could appreciate the picture! I am dorkily proud of it

And I agree that it's a bad idea to look at people's food pics when you're hungry. Remembering how good the chicken was and looking at it is even worse!

Thanks for reading! I'm still loving your TR

Everest 5K TR Part 2

Ok, so much for just ďpumping outĒ the TR! Things are finally winding down at work though so I should be able to finish now!

Saturday was race day and I was super excited! We had originally planned to just take it easy that day but then decided to hit DHS last minute. But before we could do that we needed to pick up our race stuff so the first stop was Wide World of Sports (after Dunkin Donuts!). I had never been there before so I was interested to see something new at Disney. Two things I remember about it: the parking lot was HUGE and it was incredibly hot that day!

The whole process of picking up our stuff was pretty straight forward. When we got there we found our names and bib numbers on a long list hung on the wall. Then we signed waivers and headed to the baseball stadium. There we were given envelopes with our teamís bibs, an info pamphlet about the race, an Expedition Everest Challenge temporary tattoo (cute!), and some other stuff I canít remember. In this same area they had a couple photo op spots that we just had to take advantage of. The first one was a huge Everest themed mural that someone had drawn and they had all the runners sign it as we took pictures with it. Hereís my teammate/bridesmaid Ashley and I with it.



And then all of the runners in our group.



The second photo spot was an Everest camp site setup that I thought was super cute. One of the really fun things about this race is that it is very well themed and has an actual story behind the whole thing. Very cool and very Disney!



After that we picked up our shirts. I really like them! Youíll see us wearing them later on in the TR. On the way out of WWoS we passed a large map of the whole race course. This was the first time I saw the actual course we would be running and I was excited for the challenge! Hereís what the course looked like.



Then we decided it was time to head over to DHS. We drove over and parked (something I havenít done in a while). I canít remember the exact order of everything we hit but we did a lot. We got a few rides of ToT in, a couple on RnRC, Star Tours, Toy Story Mania, and generally just had a lot of fun. We also did Voyage of the Little Mermaid which was a first for me. I loved it and it was such a nice break from the heat! I will definitely be doing that one again! We decided to wait in line to get a picture with Mike Wizowski. We have a looong running inside joke involving him so we felt like we were meeting a celebrity! The boys just thought we were being silly so they went and got snacks while we waited. Here we are with Mike (with one EYE!).



After we did all that the girls decided we would leave DHS and go to WalMart to get stuff to make lunch/dinner back at the room. The boys wanted to stay for Lights Motors Action so we planned to meet back up with them at the room later. Then we took the tram back to the cars being silly along the way of course.





We headed over to WalMart and picked up all the essentials for a taco dinner. It ended up costing everyone like 5 or 6 dollars a piece so we definitely saved a looot of money and still got a looot of food. We then went back to the room and got dinner ready. Here we are with our finished spread!



Once the boys got back we all just ate and hung out and had a good time. It was definitely a family meal!





After dinner we all changed and got ready for the race. We had gotten Gatorade and bananas for all of the runners so we had that right before we left. We put our temporary tattoos and race shirts on and my teammate Ashley and I even had our friend Kelly put a braid of some kind in each of our hair in a random reference to Katniss Everdeen! Here we are ready to go.



Then it was around 8pm (the race started at 9:30) so we all hopped in the cars and were off to Animal Kingdom for the Expedition Everest Challenge!

Oooohhhh, I am loving the idea for the Katniss braids!

The race sounds like it was so much fun (well, at least the preparation for it!). I can't wait to read more!
