And we'll have to try California Grill when we do- it sounds amazing!

Yep, things definitely have settled down. I never knew that you could work a job, have your desk COVERED in STUFF, and not feel even one bit stressed about it. It's a very new feeling for me. I hope it lasts!

Crystal Palace is one of our favorite places to eat breakfast in all of the World. It's so fun, and the food is great!

You definitely should give Cali Grill a try sometime. It is FANTABULOUS. I wish I could go right now.

Me too, me too! I'm up in Nashville pretty often visiting the family with the little one, so we'd love to try to make it up at the same time!

Ya'll ready for another installment? I know I am! Without further ado, let's get this party started!! (Disclaimer: I will be in no way, be held responsible for my actions during this installment of said "Trip Report" It's been a total Monday, and I'm feeling a bit wonky. "End Disclaimer"

When we finally woke up from our food induced comas , we schlepped out of bed and got ready for our day. Wanna know where we went? See if you can guess...



Still don't know? Ok...how about this one?



Know where we are yet?

Ok...check this one out...




For those of you that guessed Epcot, YOU'RE RIGHT! You've won a new car!!!!

Just kidding. But it was a nice thought, huh?

Yep...today was Epcot day. This was the day my hubby had been waiting for ever since we started planning this trip. He was finally going to get to eat at Le Cellier. Cue the marching band and streamers!!!

We spent a little while playing our own version of "Where's Waldo" that we lovingly like to refer to as "Find the Emma".

Ya see her??



No? Well...what about now??



Yup...there she is! I found her! I win!!!! (insert maniacal laugh here) (Did I spell that right? Are you guys still listening? HELLOOOOO...Is this thing on???)

We played around in the lovely red telephone booths. (These darn things are so random, but so cute!)



awww...my wittle baby!



Does anyone want to explain to me why I look pregnant in this picture?? Seriously...WHY?



Daddy was on a very important phone call. My guess is his girlfriend. You know...Belle? LOL

Look...he thinks his got some serious swag...





Alright...alright...let's move on...

So we wandered through the Canada pavillion because it wasn't quite time for lunch. We went to O Canada! I don't remember ever seeing this before, but it was really neat! Not to mention it was really hot outside, and it was NICE and COOL in there. I plopped my behind on the floor and enjoyed the show fo' sho'!

Once it was time to check in for our reservation, we walked up to the podium, and well...checked in!

When it was time for us to be seated, we were sat at a table right near the kitchen. The place was lovely! It was so dark, and cool, and well...lovely!

I am going to go on and apologize in advance for my lack of food porn in this update. But I will do my best to describe them for you.

We ordered appy's first. Gregg ordered noneother that the glorious, wonderful, absolutely heaven-in-a-bowl, Chedder Cheese Soup. MAN was this stuff good! I had heard so much about it, but you really don't understand how good it is until you try it for yourself. And dip the pretzel bread in it? SCORE! Major win there people. YUM-O!!!

I had the tomato stack. (I think that's what it was called. It was right up my alley. Perfectly red, ripe, juicy tomatoes, with onion, blue cheese, balsamic drizzle and olive oil. Uh...can we say YUM? Come on...all together now...YUUUUUUMMMMMM....

Emma? A fruit cup. Yep...that kid loves her some fruit.

When it was time for entrees, guess what we all ordered? Yep...Steak. It is a steakhouse, right? I have the famed Mushroom filet. I have to tell you though...this is where the meal went downhill. The steak was nice and tender, but I found the dish overwhelmingly salty. I mean, don't get me wrong, I love me some salt, but SHEESH! This was totally off the richtor scale salty. WHEW!

Hubster's steak was pretty salty too (I think it was a NY Strip?)

Emma didn't really care for hers either.

So for entrees, we were 0 for 3. Would we fair better with dessert?

Well of course we would!

Chocolate Moose??? yummmmmmmmmmmm....I'm drooling right now. That stuff was (in a sing songy voice) AWESOMEEEEE!!!!!



Hubby had the creme brulee, which was really good too. And Emma? Yep...you guessed it! An ice cream sundae. LOL

So what happens after lunch???

Stay tuned to find out!

Love the phone booth photo shoot! I don't think you look preggo in that picture at all! I thought that was the best picture I had seen so far of you, for real! The blue shirt is perfect for your skin tone. You are gorgeous!

LeCellier sounds delicious...there are just so many choices in Epcot that we usually end up going somewhere more unconventional than a steakhouse...even with all the rave reviews it gets. I am sure we will make it there someday.

FYI: I started a thread in the Dismeet forum for anyone that wants to meet up with us on the 27th!
