in Trips

Hi there. How’s 2014 treating you so far? I wrote part of this post a few weeks ago and then…I started a new full time job and my life has been crazy! Like, I wake up at 5 am every morning (!!). I hope to be back to tell you more about all of that…soon.
Backtracking a bit…New Years week in Orlando, FL was relaxing and warm (I wore shorts and flip flops!). You better believe I took full advantage of the excellent running conditions. But eventually we had to say goodbye to sunny Orlando and come home to wintry mix/ice/snow/misery. Take me back!
Anyway, we went to Downtown Disney for New Year’s Eve after a home cooked seafood feast, complete with king crab legs, salmon, and shrimp.
A couple days later, we visited Universal Studios. I’ve been to Disney World a few times growing up and wanted to go to Universal this time, especially to check out The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

Of course I had to try some Butterbeer (I got the frozen one)! It tasted like butterscotch cream soda, two things I LOVE.

We actually stumbled upon a delicious and not-too-expensive lunch. Rotisserie chicken, BBQ ribs, potatoes/fries, corn and this smoked turkey leg we’ve been talking about nonstop for days. It was SO good. SO tender. SO enormous! You can’t tell in this photo, but it was like the size of…a Nalgene bottle? (I brainstormed for awhile for something to compare it to and that’s the best I could do).

Anyway, we were so enchanted by the humongous turkey leg that we made a trip to the grocery store the next day to find it to make for dinner. We could only find wings. Not as good. The quest to find the same smoked turkey leg here in Northern VA has officially begun.

Alrighty, that’s all I’ve got for now. I hope you’re doing well!


Christmas at the Beach + 1500 miles in 2013

December 31, 2013

Merry belated Christmas and Happy New Year! We spent Christmas week at Myrtle Beach, SC this year. We had timeshare weeks that we had to use (or lose). Though we drove 8 hours south, it was still pretty chilly…brrr! I’m glad I packed my winter gear/apparel because I really had to bundle up for my morning [...]

We had a scrumptious Thanksgiving feast over here. I had Thanksgiving in a sports bar last year (because I was traveling), so everything tasted extra good. We all pitched in a couple of dishes. Turkey, stuffing (!!), homemade cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, jumbo shrimp, Peter’s pumpkin soup, cranberry walnut bread and pumpkin pie. I’ve been [...]
