(Pure bliss. More pictures to come soon!)
I got a Canon Rebel T3i (amongst many other amazing, thoughtful graduation gifts from all my friends and family.There are no words in the world to express how much I love you all) !!!!!!!!!
The hotel was absolutely beautiful. A big thank you to my Uncle Tom for the wonderful accommodations!
To be honest, I didn’t feel like going out after dinner. I was alllll for it until we got back to the room and snuggled under the covers (because it was a cold 65 degrees in Orlando haha, and I’m a huge fan of comfortable hotel beds). I’m so thankful for the friends that don’t take no for an answer (Maddie)… She literally came into the lobby of the hotel and dragged me out, and I am SO glad she did. Going out for me is like going to the gym for some people — the hardest part is just getting there, but once you’re there it’s not that bad (and usually fun!)
It’s always a great night when I’m with these friends. I’m so blessed to have such fun people in my life!
I also saw a bunch of familiar faces, which is always fun!
I went back to the hotel room after a night full of laughs, fireball shots and dancing. The morning arrived WAY too soon, but I was so excited to play with my new camera! My mom, aunt and I headed out to explore the downtown area and ended up stumbling upon Zilly Bee Cafe, a breakfast/brunch restaurant.
It. was. so. good. There’s a great mixture of healthy options and typical hearty breakfast fare, so it’s suitable for any taste.
I opted for the Bene-Florentine without the Hollandaise sauce and subbed the english muffin for whole wheat toast. They were also featuring a special: gingerbread lattes. I’m not a huge fan of sugary drinks (I don’t like drinking my calories, I’d much rather eat them), so I asked if they had any sugar free options available. They were super gracious and made me my own special sugar free hazelnut latte 🙂 (P.S. that brings up another point — Don’t be afraid to modify your order at restaurants. I always feel annoying when I ask to substitute, but most restaurants are more than willing to modify for healthier options that aren’t on the menu!)
They also have a wide variety of tea available. We tried one of their seasonal fruity options and ADORED it!
I definitely recommend this cute little restaurant for anyone visiting Downtown Orlando. My family and I left super full and happy!
(No hiding from a hangover with this camera….)
And now for some funny hotel room outtakes for your enjoyment:

And lastly, I leave you with my “YOUNG, WILD, FREE AND READY TO TAKE ON ORLANDO” photo! Yes, I jump on fancy hotel beds. Don’t act like you’ve never done it.
The world is my oyster. This is only the beginning 🙂
