We're Back Home

Wow, what a fantastic holiday, I really didn't want to come home, well not just yet anyway! I absolutely love the USA and our holidays there, if it wasn't for our family and friends here I'm sure we would be living there. Florida is amazing, a fun time was had by all. We did all the Disney parks, I love them (such a big kid and Disney princess, well Tinkerbell wannabe!), you see I think I live in a little fairytale land all of my own sometimes! he he. we went to Universal too and, we even got to visit The Wizarding World of Harry Potter before it opened to the general public on 18th June. It was great, I loved the main attraction there which was a 3D type ride where you are playing quidditch etc!

I also LOVE the shopping there, I would go there just for that alone! I think we went to the Florida Mall 3 times, and the outlets, I crammed in two
trips to Michael's craft store (they were having a sale!!) and two trips to the Scrappy Boutique, which had divine embellishments and scrapbook supplies and lovely, helpful staff (I could just live right there in their store, although they may object, he he!). So I stocked up on a few (I use that word loosely!) craft supplies and some nice clothes and costume jewellery from American Eagle Outfitters and Abercrombie. I also brought a few nice decorative items for the home, those of you who know me, know that I like my nic nacs! Everything is so much cheaper too which is always good!!

The weather was very hot!! But I did manage a
few hours lounging by the pool, reading my book! We also went to the Disney water parks which were great, was good to splash about and cool down. And the food, well that is great too, my fav's have to be the Hard Rock Cafe at Universal's City Walk, Baharma Breezee - love the atmosphere there, so laid back and the food is gorgeous and I also really enjoyed Fulton's crab House at Downtown Disney. I seriously need to think about working off those Florida sized portions now though!! Well I've probably bored you enough but I think you get that I love it there and had a great time, can't wait to go back, still so much to do there!

I'll be back with some holiday snaps, I'll even try to do one of those slidesho thingy-me-bobs soon and I'm itching to get creating and use my new goodies, feels like forever since I got to craft for fun! I'm just trying to get back into the swing of things at the moment, still feel jet lagged!

Hope you are having a good week so far.
