On Friday my hubby and I took a 3 hour drive to Orlando to meet up with Teagan from Echoes of a Soul and her husband Scott. We had planned on taking a ton of pictures ( at least I had), but as it always happens with new bloggy friends, we just spent the whole time talking. We met at Islands of Adventure (where else?) and the first ride we rode got us so wet, so all our pictures featured wet hair and “peed on” clothes. Case in point below- first shot!
We tried to utilize every trash can in our way as a tripod for group shots. It got more difficult when we got to Dr Suess Land, since all the lines in the land of Dr Seuss are crooked.
And of course the trademark jump ( in my friend circle I am known as a jumping queen)
Showing some attitude here. Hubster spent half the time trying to get some work done on the iphone, so he’s completely out of it as you can see by most pictures.
Our favorite was of course Harry Potter land. We rode the ride and everyone loved it of course, had lunch at Three Broomsticks and dueled with/on the dragons and even had a taste of Butterbeer ( well, Teagan and Scott did, I decided not to waste calories…a decision I regret right at this moment, because nothing sounds better than Butterbeer right now)
The only straight trash can in the whole Dr Suess land means a jump…
Of course we got the usual “people staring” as we counted “1,2, jump” and pressed the remote button. I bet you some wondered who was taking a picture of us.
And what has become an obligatory SLURP shot for couples…
ever since I took this one a while ago.
So needless to say, we all had a lot of fun. The evenings was concluded by a dinner at Villa de Flora in Gaylord Palms, during which we spent, what had to have been, 3 hours disussing vegetarianism and veganism and nutrition in general. We pretty much got kicked out ( you know the time where everyone is gone and the servers are clearing tables and putting chair on top of the them). We were so involved into the conversation, we completely forgot about dessert. It was for the best though- we were all stuffed.
So that was a hugely fun day. I loved both Teagan and Scott and I am happy to know them in real life. My most favorite thing is meeting bloggy friends in real life ( 5 of my best friends were met through blogging and social networking) and I have to say Teagan was my first Selfie Magic bloggy friend that I can consider a friend in real life.
Girlie, I expect you and Scott to come stay with us in Naples as soon as we’re done with the whole baby making business haha
