 While visiting Rafiki's Planet Watch at Disney's Animal Kingdom, we took part in an animation class called the Animation Experience.

Seeing behind the scenes at Disney's Animal Care Center.

 On our most recent visit to Disney's Animal Kingdom, we experienced something we didn't even know was possible! We watched an animal being examined at their animal care center!

Dinner at the Grand Floridian Cafe

 


Our first dining reservation during this trip to WDW was at the Grand Floridian Cafe.  Because of our luggage snafu ( you can read about that HERE), I wasn't sure we were going to make it, but we did!  We were even a few minutes early for our 5:30pm reservation.

June in Review

 




Ya'll know how bad I am at documented one sentence each day, so I will just do a recap of the month of June. Wow, I know I feel like a broke record when I sat "this month went so fast".

Epcot Flower and Garden Scavenger Hunts and Tea Tour

 There is so much fun to be had at Disney's Epcot park but every once in a while Epcot will throw in some fun "Extra's"  This last trip we made these "Extras" a bit of a game. 


We visited during the Flower and Garden Festival.

What to try at Epcot's Flower and Garden Festival

 


We just returned from Disney World and we'd love to share about our time at Epcot's Flower and Garden Festival. This year the Festival ran from March 3 to July 5. Even if you don't plan to go to the Festival before July 5th, hopefully you can use this post as a reference for an upcoming visit to the Flower and Garden Festival.

And it went like.....

 Long time no blog!  I've been doing really well this year with the monthly wrap up posts but then when it came to wrap up the month of April, my motivation was lost.

Peloton Surprises!

 




So I've finally hopped on the band wagon and purchased a Peloton. I upgraded from my old chain link spin bike. It took me awhile to take the plunge, but now that I have it, I can't believe I've waited so long to get one. If you have one, you know what I'm talking about. For those of you that don't, let me explain a few cool features on it.

Monthly Meal Ideas -First Edition

 

In a previous blog post I talked about bringing back the WIAW ( What I ate Wednesday) posts but because we don't blog on Wednesday, I thought perhaps I would just do some random posts every now and then sharing what I ate during the month.

Coffee Talk and March Wrap Up



If we were having coffee, I'd tell you that I'm 2 for 2 already in doing the Monthly wrap up ( which is better than me trying to do the One Sentence a Day post that I've been attempting to do with my friend Rebecca Jo..lol). So why not continue the trend in March.

March Runfessions


As we start off with this Runfession post, I have to confess/runfess most of my picture files have disappeared from my computer! I only noticed this as I was composing this post. I have no stinking clue what is going on, so I apologize this post is going to be light on photos.  Okay, let's get into some Runfessions!

Must See Sights in San Francisco

 


Being a Flight Attendant I have been to many fun places in the U.S. as well as outside the U.S. One of the cities I have always wanted to visit was San Francisco. I finally was able to have my day in San Francisco.

Pre-Spring Break at Kalahari Resort & Spa

 Between Covid and a long winter I know many of us have had cabin fever pretty bad lately.  Our governor recently lifted the travel ban in our state so we felt we could safely go  someplace other than just work and the grocery store!

5 Things February- Febraury Wrap Up

 Wow, What a month it has been! I suppose this is the last "official" month of Winter, right? 


This is the most "wintery" February we've had in a long time.  I can remember in the past there would be a few days were I could run in short sleeves.  I do like Winter but I will be looking forward to Spring too. I do think that as we get older we appreciate each season for what it is


Since February was a short month, let's go with 5 Things that I remember.

February Runfessions!

 


Welcome! I'm so glad you stopped by. It's that time again to join Marcia for our monthly Runfessions!

I Runfess that I didn't exactly plan on it, but I guess I've taken a hiatus from outdoor running this winter. I haven't ran outside since before Christmas and since Spring is just right around the corner, I say why even push myself to do so...lol.  Let's just make it a solid "break" for the season!

Why do I need an "Amazon day?" And random purchases you might like

 Oh the weather outside is frightful, but Amazon is so delightful. Since we have all the time, buy it Prime, buy Prime, buy it Prime........( So I thought)!

I Love You Winter!

 Summer will ALWAYS be my favorite season. In fact, the hotter the weather, the better!  There use to be a time when I absolutely hated winter. I hated being cold, but I think when I started running outdoors ( about 10 or 11 years ago), all that has changed.  I still don't like being cold, but I've learned to manage it a little better (and with some warmer clothes)!

January in Review


 I'm not going to lie. we all know that I'm not actually going to write one sentence per day, because I'm not that clever to have recorded one memorable thing each day in January. So I'll just do a recap of each week. Thanks to Rebecca Jo for the link up!

Heck, I won't even call them highlights, because really, there wasn't much to highlight in January, just another month in the life of a pandemic!

January Runfessions...or something like that

 


Since we are still trying to make running a part of our lives, I thought I would visit the "Runfessional" with Marcia and our other running pals!

Organize This Year

 Organize This Year is such an ironic title since this year already started out so chaotic, am I right?

Although I am quite frustrated with what is going on with our nation, I know the only thing that I CAN control is my little corner of the world, and that is what I am focusing on.

Who came up with 10,000 steps?

 Raise your hand if you've ever done the Runner's World Run Streak ( or any run streak) from Thanksgiving till New Years?  

I've participated in that run streak the last few years, and although the "requirements" are to only run one mile every day, the most challenging part was to remember to log it. If I remember correctly, if you submitted your miles, you were entered into a prize drawing or something.
