This is… 27… What?!? A Birthday Recap

Hey Internet! How goes it? Just dropping by to do a quick birthday weekend recap… from two weekends ago… I may not be good at this… Anyway, two weeks ago I turned 27… I’m officially in my late twenties and it may possibly be freaking me out a bit… To celebrate I had a fun filled weekend of shopping and eating and dranking.

Sunday Adorableezle Winterpop and I went shopping – we hit up Charming Charlie’s and Home Goods and Ulta – I got myself some fun birthday treats and it was a fun morning. On the way home we grabbed some Pei Wei and then my friend from high school and college came up from Sarasota to visit! We spent the night at Trader Sam’s – my favorite bar on Disney property. Its a tiki bar with a lot of fun themeing and special effects. I maybe forgot to take pictures, but here are some instagram pictures from my last trip to Trader Sam’s:

Sunday morning a small group of us got together and got breakfast at The Wave… of American Flavors at the Contemporary Resort . They have a great breakfast buffet with refillable mimosas. I basically ate All. The. Cheesy Grits. After breakfast we headed over to Epcot to ride Ellen’s Universe of Energy one last time before it closed on the 13th. It was bittersweet. The we rode the Gran Fiesta Tour and got a birthday margarita. Here is a quick Snapchat snapshot of the day:

And also a pretty group picture:

After that we were all feeling pretty tired, so we went our separate ways and I took a really nice birthday nap… did I mention I may be old?

To cap off the weekend Adorabeezle and I got dinner at The California Grill, also at the Contemporary Resort. I hadn’t been to California Grill since 2010, but it was just as AMAZING as I remembered it. I mean…


It was a really great weekend, and I’m excited to see what 27 has in store!

Being Twenty-five

Hello Internet!

I am 4 days into being 25, and I think things are finally starting to get better around these parts.

My birthday was great. Old Roommate drove two hours to Orlando to spend the day with me. We went shopping and had lunch and she bought me a Birthday Crown!!

…what? You don’t wear a birthday crown to your birthday dinner?

After Adorabeezle got off work, the three of us got mani/pedis. I got a gel manicure for the first time and I am LOVING the fact that I can do all sorts of things that would otherwise DESTROY a manicure. I think I am sold on the whole process, but I doubt it is in the budget to keep it up…. maybe if I stop eating….

Anyway, I got some amazing birthday treats (other than my CROWN). The biggest gift was a Disney Annual Pass from my mom. I am so so lucky to continue to be able to go to the parks after my last day of work (Next Sunday! Holla!) I got some great hair stuff and earrings and a bath bomb and a Scrump tsum tsum from Adorabeezle. I got some Birthday Money, some of which will be used to get a new Erin Condren Life Planner (my current one was in my backpack when I got stuck in a Florida rain storm. Boo). And I hear tell some things are in the mail, so I figure I’m one lucky girl.

Other than birthday-ing, 25 has been good. I’ve only had 1 minor “I’m so old!!!” freakout. I’ve started the #shereadstruth Women in the Word – Old Testament Study – I have been desperately needing time in the Word, but have been avoiding it because when times get tough Liz makes silly decisions. I’m only three days in, but so far it has been SO GOOD for my heart.

Otherwise, I am still working on the new apartment, getting ready for school to start, watching Gilmore Girls, and still hanging in there.  I want to get back on the intentionality bandwagon, so I will be checking in more and more (hopefully).

How are things in your neck of the woods, Internet?

The Great and Fantastic Birthday of Adorabeezle Winterpop!

So Internet, after my really distracting night last Monday, I thought I would join you today (A Friday! What is happening?!) to tell you all about my roommate, Adorabeezle Winterpop’s birthday.

Last Friday Adorabeezle Winterpop celebrated turning 24, and we started the celebration off right – by seeing Pitch Perfect 2 in theaters on Thursday night. Now I don’t want to spoil it for you but Pitch Perfect 2 was kinda wonderful – I mean (spoiler alert) SNOOP DOG SINGS A CHRISTMAS SONG. I literally can’t it was amazing. Go see it right now if you haven’t. You are flippin’ welcome.

Anyhoo, the next day we got spiffed up and went to the Magic Kingdom!

A few highlights: A wonderful custodial cast member stopped us and made Adorabeezle a SUPER FANCY birthday button!

We rode some rides!


We took a bunch of selfie’s with characters.

We ended the night in a hammock at the Port Orleans Riverside.


It was basically a magical day filled with magical memories.

What is your favorite birthday memory, Internet?
