I'm Going To Florida + A Giveaway

In just a few short weeks I will be in the sunny state of Florida for my cousins wedding. Do you remember my happy list from last week? Well, I forgot to include, family and friends who get married in sunny destinations.

I know you never need a reason or an excuse to travel, but you can see why having a wedding in another country would make someone who likes to justify every single little thing, very very happy. Plus, when you've only been back from Mexico for not even two months, you really need to have some backup when asking your boss for more vacation time. Oh, that reminds me, is there anyone that has a wedding coming up, say, next winter in the Bahamas, St. Lucia, or Hawaii? If you could just go ahead and pop my invitation in the mail, that would be greatly appreciated. I promise, you don't need to feed me, just the invitation is fine enough and I'll even throw in a wedding present.

Alright, one vacation at a time, so let's get back to Florida.

I'm really excited because, not only do I get to see my beautiful cousin get married, but I get to spend a full week on St. Petes Beach with my sister, her husband, and my two nephews who I rarely get to see.

Last years family vacation.

And, after that week is over, me and Todd will be continuing our trip and driving to Orlando, which means....Disney World!!

I've been to Disney World once when I was a little girl, but I don't think that really counts when you're only nine years old (although I surprisingly still remember a lot, like how Back To The Future and Splash Mountain were my favourite rides and how my dad tried to wake me and my sister up one morning by tipping the pull-out couch which resulted in us getting stuck in the couch, oh and crying when I lost my breath going down a steep water slide at one of the water parks we visited). I honestly can't wait to experience all of it again, minus the crying and the getting stuck in a couch part.

Here's where I need your help, friends. It seems that there are a million and one things that you can and should do in Orlando so, if you've ever been, I'd love to know what were some of your favourite places or things to do. Any tips or suggestions would be great!

One more thing, since we're on the topic of Disney World, I'd love for you to enter the giveaway below for a chance to win a $20 Disney gift card. Whether you're travelling there in the future or if you just want to purchase some of their merchandise online, this extra little bit of cash can help. Orrrr, winning the gift card and then giving it right back to me for my trip works good too!!  :)
