Kristen & Preston need to start a photography business together, let's be honest here.

WHOA the colors on that lizard! Amazing! And overall this is just one of the most beautiful resorts ever. I hope I get to stay there someday!

I love little French bistros. Those food pics just made me HUNNNNGRAY. Thank God my mom is coming home with Chipotle. Bless that woman, hahaha.

OH HEY YOU'RE GOING TO DISNEY WORLD IN A WEEK NOT A BIG DEAL JUST THOUGHT I'D BRING IT UP. And I'm going in 24 days. lalalaalalallalalalaa

Well, now I know what I'm buying this weekend. Curls Rock and an immersion blender. For fall soups. Obviously. Ha. I have thick curly hair, too. I hope it works for me!

It seems like you are all really enjoying Hilton Head. It's one of my favorite places to stay, besides Disney World of course. My family is DVC, too. We really took advantage of Hilton Head for spring break trips when I was in high school. I love the beach at low tide. The tide pools are amazing. We found the sand dollars, too. But they stained our hands and feet green?

I need Mickey waffles pronto.

I love that Winnie the Pooh pin so much!!! It's adorable!

You have beautiful hair!! Just thought I'd let you know! LOL! But seriously, I wish I could grow mine long! But it's too fine, so it doesn't look very good!

You guys are so cute! Beautiful pictures!

And that lunch looked delicious!

Update #11: Meeting Shadow and Giuseppe's for Dinner!
August 19th, 2012

We were back!



We went up to the Live Oak Lodge because Shadow was out!



Shadow is Disneys only living mascot and shes the dog that lives at Disneys Hilton Head Resort. Shes absolutely BEAUTIFUL, so calm and so cute! She was just laying there like a precious little angel.

The guy who takes care of her is Bloo and he was telling us all about her! He was such a great cast member. We took some pictures with Shadow and got to pet her.



There are a lot of stories about Shadow's background and such, but I didn't catch them because I was distracted by how adorable she was. That is exactly the kind of dog I want when I'm older! Only I want a boy dog. And I want to name him Pluto. Yes, I decided that when I was 12 AND THE DREAM HAS NOT YET DIED!!



Then we went inside and looked around. Dad and Jonathan were playing checkers and pool.





I went to go look at the pins again and I got a Daisy pin, a teapot, and a United Kingdom pin!



Then I went back into couch/TV room and Preston and I played checkers. He creamed me. Merp.



Then we went back out to see shadow again because shes that cute.



Bloo signed my little Shadow postcard for me! They're available right in the lobby.



We loved Shadow! SUCH A CUTE PUPPY!



Then it started pouring again but we walked back to the room. Preston and Mom played some game called Pick Two which is a little scrabble-esque. I typed up some more trip notes.

Then Mom, Jonathan, and Dad went down to play horseshoes. Preston and I decided that we wanted to go swimming!

The pool was such a great temperature! It was on the warmer side but it was still cool enough to be refreshing. We went down the slide about 4 or 5 times. It is so fast! I loved it!



We swam around and went in the hot tub and such. It was awesome and we really enjoyed our time there. It started raining a little bit but we kept swimming for a while.

We got out eventually and we went upstairs to the gift shop. THERE WAS A NEW CAST MEMBER IN THERE AND SHE HAD NEW PINS!!! She had a JASMINE pin, a SNOW WHITE pin, a 5 LEGGED GOAT PIN, and A RAPUNZEL PIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was so excited. I wanted them all, and even though I traded for a few more than youre technically supposed to trade for, she let me get away with it because I was so excited. AHH it was such a good find! I was so happy.



Then we went back to the room, I showered, and we got ready for dinner. Preston and I went back up to the gift shop to get some DVDs to rent. We got Mulan and the Three Caballeros, (which I never got to watch) and I also bought us some Mickey Rice Krispies and I got a Partners Statue/Donald/Goofy pin. EEP. So happy.



We met back up with everyone at the car and drove to Giuseppe's for a late dinner. I heard about this place the most when looking at reviews for Hilton Head and it did not disappoint! I was looking forward to it the most and it ended up being my favorite restaurant!



We had about a 20-25 minute wait because it was crowded, but we really werent mad. In the mean time we took some pictures:



Family photo!



We didn't eat until around 9 o'clock, but once we were seated we were well taken care of! We placed our orders and took a few pictures while we waited:



Me and the guys (:



My precious parents. They look so happy!



We got garlic bread first which tasted AWESOME. We got half cheese and half regular. Very good idea, boys. I love when we get extra food. YUMMAY.



Dad got a salad to start. Ahh, the healthy appetizer.



Then Mom got eggplant parm:



Dad got spaghetti:



They were both very enjoyable. Great carb filled meals of deliciousness.

Then Jonathan, Preston, and I split a Pepperoni Pizza. We are from a town that is VERY picky about good pizza and I have to say, this pizza was extremely delicious! I absolutely loved it! I ate a little more than two pieces. It was just so good& I am still sad that its gone. I didnt even have room for dessert because I was so full, but gahh that was good. It definitely lived up to my expectations!



We went back to the resort and everyone besides me played Scrabble while I caught up on trip reporting notes again. Preston won scrabble because hes ridiculously good at that game.

Then everyone wen to bed and Preston and I watched Mulan! Except I watched up to the part where she first arrives at the training camp and I was out. The next thing I knew, the movie was over! I woke up and I was shocked that it was over already! I was really overheated because I was wearing a sweatshirt and I was so full from eating dinner so late at night. So it was a bad combination.

So I finally went to sleep at about two oclock.. and I had a really hard time falling asleep on this night. Probably because I was sad Preston was leaving the next day and because I hit such a big food wall and it wouldnt go away. Mehh. Ah well.

Continued in Next Post

Loving the relaxing feel to your trip! We just booked our 1st trip to HHI for next summer and I have showed my family all your pictures to get excited!

I just hope that 1 week at the beach will keep us entertained when we are used to park touring at WDW.

Awww! Shadow's so cute! I found a Disney Parks blog entry about her and apparently she showed up when the resort was being built, so they let her stay! So sweet!

I love the Partners statue pin! You've traded for a lot of good pins on this trip!
