Great update! Dinner at Shula's looked wonderful!! You guys looked so pretty all dressed up. Girl I don't know how you walk in those heels! If I could get away with wearing TOMS and dress up clothes I would in a heartbeat lol.

Glad you had such a wonderful meal at Shulas! You both look beautiful!
Yikes, I can't walk in heels at the best of times, let alone on a boardwalk! I'm impressed that you made it without breaking an ankle like I would have!
What a wonderful day, wow. A big day too, can't say I blame you for skipping MK that evening!

Great update!! I also followed the link over to check out the dining review!! Looks so good. My favorite steak so far has to be the one I had at California Grill. But I've never tried YSH or Shula's.

The cake pops looked very good from Starbucks! May have to try one of those just from around here somewhere.

Balloon vendor must have been a little warm. Maybe she was seeking out a little shade.

You both look very nice for your dinner.
Mmm, heels on a boardwalk, I can see how that would be difficult.


Cake pops do seem really small. I know when my husband got one, he felt there were other snacks he could've bought for the same price and gotten way more out of them. But, hey, at least you can say you tried one now.

I grew up in Miami, and the Dolphins and Don Shula are etched in my memory, and especially since my father resembled Don Shula so much. I remember their perfect season very well!

On this upcoming trip, my sister and I will absolutely have to go to this steakhouse. I make no apologies for lovin' a good steak!!

Fun pictures; I especially love the one of you kicking your heels up.

I'm glad Em had such a great 18th birthday.
Ms. Kat, look up the Candy Cane Inn. I know the name sounds awful, but this place has been recently remodeled and it's still family owned after all these years. It's a beautiful little hotel, serves a continental breakfast every morning (which actually is way more than just that) and it's clean, reasonably priced and the best part, it's not far from the park and on the same side, no crossing streets to get there! (once you are there you'll understand why that's important)


Hope this helps.

Dinner looks and sounds like it was amazing! I've never even really thought to think about resturants in the swalphin for eating at lol. Then again, the boardwalk usually escapes my plans while at Disney lol, but now, I think I'll have to look into it!!

Also walking on the boardwalk in heels…hilarious…I wish i was there to see it lol!! I usually opt for the flats or sandals…the heels usually don't even make it into the suitcase lol!

Reading your dining review of Shulas was definitely a mistake. I am now at work droooooling. It does strike me as a little strange to have a dirty football on a table at such a nice place though. I'm assuming they clean it, but

Pete's main request for our upcoming trip was STEAK. We are gunna try out the Yachtsman this time and save Shula's for a special occasion! I didn't know that it was all football themed. He will definitely love that!

Anytime you're in the DC area, let me know!

What a great way to cap a magical day with dinner at Shula's! Who knew the ol coach could put together a great steakhouse. It's on my dining list for 2015. Yeah, I've already made plans for our trip in June 2015.

I'm all caught up to this TR!! Subscribing so that I can read all about the rest of it! That DS tour looked AMAZING! That is so awesome that you all got to do that! I tried some new restaurants when I was at WDW in January but you all have given me a few more that I need to try. Now I just need to figure out when my next escape to WDW will be...

You make me dream of DL so much!! I still can't believe I've never been. In CO, it's definitely way more common to fly there than all the way to FL. Silly me. I love your pics every time! You are luck you live so close!

I don't blame you for heading back to the room...by day 8, sometimes you just need a little recharge time!

Oooooh Shula's!! It's on our bucket list for sure. We tried BlueZoo during our trip this past October and are trying to find time to try Shula's either during our trip in June or October this year. After reading this segment, I'm hungry!

Hi Brenda! I love your and Emily's dresses! Very pretty.

I am the worst at walking in heels, especially on rough surfaces, so I would have been right there with ya!

I love love love steak, potatoes, and chocolate cake so Shula's looks fantastic.
