I haven't been reading your food reviews, but I'm going to have to check this one out. I'm not a big meat fan, but I do want to do something special for our anniversary when we are there next fall. I've been thinking about Yachtsman, but maybe Shula's is the way to go.

Love the dresses. You both look adorable!

Oh yeah - those cake pops look like a total tease!

Yumm...Shula's sounds yummy. We've stayed at the Dolphin but never made it to Shula's, maybe next time.

I just love reading about you & Em's travels. I hope that my girls want to travel with me as they get older. I'm sure if it's Disney they will!

Sounds like a nice night! Next trip, we are going to make a point to eat at some of the Dolphin and Swan restaurants...I've read so many nice reviews lately!

I think those cake pops are so small so you can have more than one dessert

You guys look so cute all dressed up for dinner!

What a magical day! Getting an opportunity to tour the dream suite is so amazing!

Hmmm, what ever is that balloon vendor doing??? Haha, probably tired of having her photo taken... OOPS!

WOW!!!!! My God you two look absolutely stunning!! Incidentally, the WOW was not surprise, just an exclamation. (Plus, awesome job concealing the camera).

Haha, so I'm guessing a foot rub was not in the cards on this night?

It must be so fun as a mom & daughter pair to get all dressed up and go out to a nice dinner!! Both of you looked beautiful. Glad you had a wonderful dinner!

I had to at Em's face in reaction to the foot massage request. I'm sure my face looks similar whenever DH asks me for one!!!

Those cake pops look yummy but tiny! Mmm. Shula’s sounds amazing! I could go for a steak right about now. My frozen dinner for lunch just does not compare. You and Em looked great! Pretty ladies!

great update ... you had me a "meat cart"

those cake pops are pretty small but they are fairly rich, and I think you get 3 for a snack credit which isn't too bad ... especially if you have little kids as they don't look too small to them

Every day that poor balloon salesman gets home, looks in the mirror and says "I don't get it ... again, not a single balloon sold! what am I doing wrong?!?!?!"

Love using the entrance to DCA from GCH

I'm going to have to use your idea from SM one day! Never thought about giving a little smooch for your ride photo. I'd think you'd knock each others teeth out, but you guys did it gracefully

I've read amazing things about Shula's! The only reason we haven't tried it yet is because we consider it 'off-site' And your dresses are super cute, BTW! I need to start looking for some cute dresses to Vegas.

Do you know that I have NEVER had one of those cake pops from Starbucks. And you know I go to Starbucks at least twice a day (if not more).

We've never done Shula's at Disney, but we have eaten at the one near our home, and it was out of this world. Loved it. I did enjoy seeing the inside of the one at Disney.

Em doesn't look at all enthralled with the idea of giving her mother a foot rub. Hmmm...I wonder why.

I'll have to remember to save some chocolates for Michael when I see my best friend that I've never met.

While we were walking from YC to the Dolphin hotel we had some hilarious moments.

There were a few times that I stumbled slightly when my heel got stuck. I’m sure I looked like I’d already been drinking. I’m graceful I tell ya!


I sometimes feel like I need to explain to people how clumsy I am just walking, and not that I am drunk! DH just shakes his head at me! Add heals and a boardwalk and I would be a gonner.

Shula's looks so good! The photo of the lava cake in the dining review made me want to go just for that! DH would love the decor as well, we will have to try it in a couple of years when the DxDDP no long is a savings for us since the kiddos will be "adults".

Those cake pops really are teeny weeny, but so yummy!

Shula's sounds great! Wow. That was basically the best day ever, huh? So awesome.

Love your trip report!! A tour of the castle suite. I call that a lot of pixie dust...and I thought riding in the Lilly Belle in June when it was 94 degrees was pixie dust.
Love your report of your Mother daughter trips. My mom and I love to travel together and my Goddaughter has been traveling with us since she was 12 and loves it. (she is 19 and ready to go on another trip!!) The memories are great!!

We've eaten at Shula's in Chicago and really enjoyed it. We may have to try the one at the Dolphin. Was it really that empty while you were there?

Heels on a boardwalk?! I have enough trouble walking in heels on a flat even surface!

Cute dresses on the both of you!

Cake pops! So small, yet so tasty!
