Bits and Pieces: 2019 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival

June 3, 2019

2019 Epcot International Flower & Garden FestivalIt’s officially the last day of the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival! Womp womp. So I thought today would be the perfect time to finally share a little recap about my trip to this years festival. I’ll be breaking up this post into three main categories: food, topiaries and random photos. 

As you all know, or might not know, the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival is my FAVORITE Epcot festival. Well, at least it used to be. I’m not going to lie, this year left me feeling a little underwhelmed. Dare I say that the Epcot International Festival of the Arts has officially taken the spot of my favorite Epcot festival?!  

Plot twist.

Bits and Pieces: A Weekend in Washington, D.C.

May 24, 2019

Bethesda Maryland
Two posts in ONE week?! Say whhhaaaat? Today, I wanted to share a few (no really, I only took a handful) of the photos I took while in DC last weekend (Friday & Saturday). Even though technically the photo above was taken in Maryland, not DC, but let’s just ignore that. 

I’m so happy to be back in the swing of consistent blogging. (Yay me!). I’m still a little behind on some Disney Cruise and other travel related posts, but I’m trying to take things one day at a time. (Or one post at a time!).

Here’s a few snapshots from my weekend in DC:

Cupcake Showdown: Georgetown Cupcake vs Sprinkles Cupcakes

May 20, 2019

Georgetown Cupcake Washington DCHappy Monday! I just got back from a brief trip to Washington, D.C. and while I was going through some of the photos I took (for a Bits and Pieces post) I noticed 90% of the photos were food related. Not only that, most of them were cupcake related! While I was in DC I stopped by both Georgetown Cupcake and Sprinkles Cupcakes (within an hour of each other oddly enough) so I thought it would be fun to do a little “Cupcake Showdown” post.

Warning, I am NOT a big “sweets person” (although cupcakes are probably my favorite dessert) so my opinion might be slightly different from someone who is a cupcake enthusiastic. BUTsince I have no allegiance to or preference of either cupcake shop, I think I can successfully offer a non-bias opinion.

I will rate each cupcake on the following: taste “cake”, taste “icing”, location, price, flavor versatility, “buzz”/it factor and presentation.

The cupcake shop with the most points out of 7 WINS!

Bits and Pieces: Universal’s Islands of Adventure

May 15, 2019

Happy Hump Day! Today I decided to share a few photos from my favorite place on Earth: Universal Orlando Resort. Just kidding. Not about sharing the photos but about Universal being my favorite place. Even though my love/mostly hate relationship with this theme park started when I was a kid, I STILL, even after all the times it’s let me down, try to give them the benefit of the doubt. 

Universal Orlando Resort consists of two parks: Universal’s Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios (well technically it’s now three parks including Volcano Bay but you get what I mean). This post is decided to my favorite of the two, Universal’s Islands of Adventure. No shade to Universal Studios but Islands of Adventure is legit 100 times better.

(It’s not even my opinion it’s FACT!).

Bits and Pieces: Disney’s Animal Kingdom / Happy Earth Day

April 22, 2019

Animal Kingdom Tree of LifeHappy Monday/Earth Day/birthday to Disney’s Animal Kingdom! Fun fact: Animal Kingdom was my favorite park when I was a kid (now as an adult, Epcot is my favorite). I remember watching the news and seeing updates on how the Tree of Life was going to be built and how it was going to look. I even got to visit Animal Kingdom during it’s opening year back in 1998. Even though I was only six at the time, I will never forget the first time I laid eyes on the Tree of Life.

I’m pretty sure my jaw dropped to the ground.

Even to this day, 21 years later, the Tree of Life is still one of the most beautiful sights in all of Disney World. To honor one of my favorite parks, on their 21st birthday (DAK can finally drink!), I wanted to share a few photos from my recent trip to Disney World last week!
