A Real Vacation

It has been 22 months since I have been physically disconnected from Audrey for more than a few hours. Through the whole pregnancy (duh) and then 13 months of her life, I never spent a night away from her, and IT. WAS. TIME. I love that little one more than life itself, but it was TIME for a getaway, time for vacation, time for rejuvenation, and that’s exactly what Jason and I did! Off to Boston we went for a few days of sightseeing, naps, delicious food, uninterrupted reading time, Fall weather, and fun.

Have you ever been to Boston? It was way different than I was expecting. Jason compared it to San Francisco, and I agree. It’s a big city that feels like a small town. You can walk everywhere, and the weather allows you to do that! It was not as bustling as New York City, and had a little bit of flair like New Orleans. But we saw some really great things: Paul Revere’s house, the Old North Church, Boston Harbor, USS Constitution, the Red Sox, basically all the stereotypical things you can think of when you think of Boston. Jason loved the history, I loved the Fall weather and the tours of Harvard and MIT, and we both loved the company.sunflowers tour boston massacre jason tour guide cheers paul revere house old north church hotel view red sox game

A Magical Weekend

Oh Disney World, how I love you so. How magical you made my Mardi Gras weekend. And how sore you made my poor footsies. But, how special you made my vacation…

Me and Jason, along with four of our best friends headed to the most magical place on earth this past weekend to avoid, escape, run screaming from, experience something other than Mardi Gras festivities. Here in South Louisiana, Mardi Gras is king, and it consumes an entire few weeks in February, culminating in Mardi Gras Day / Fat Tuesday. We’ve all lived through Mardi Gras our whole lives, so it was a nice chance to do something different and new. AND to go on vacation ๐Ÿ™‚

And boy did we go.

We stayed at the Pop Century resort.

We waited in lines for buses.

We tried to conquer Epcot. But mostly picked the rides where
we could sit down the longest.

We had breakfast with a few celebrities ๐Ÿ™‚

Waited in more lines, but at least it was out of the rain.

We made wishes under Cinderella’s castle during the fireworks.

We stayed in Magic Kingdom until 2:30 a.m. Just because we could.

Made our way to Universal for some non-Disney fun!

Maybe a little too much fun…

But we capped off our trip with Harry Potter World aka AWESOME-VILLE.

Had some delicious butter beer aka cream soda aka AWESOME-VILLE.

And stopped taking pictures after this moment because we all officially hit our breaking point after three 18-hour days and all started to look like zombies and refused to take any more pictures, lest we smile one more time and explode from the magic.

All in all, it was an AMAZING trip. Good times. We laughed, ALOT. And got to be kids again. I only hope we can make more trips like this with this group and all our friends so that we always remember to have fun, be young and enjoy life.

P.S. We also agreed that the next vacation would involve a beach or a cabin with no lines or crazy Disney employees that yell at you when you stop of the “designated pedestrian sidewalk.” Sounds lovely and peaceful, right?

Have a magical day!!
