Weekend Highlights: Zoo, Farmer’s Market and All Moved In

This weekend was a blast!

It started with dinner with my dad and roommate, and we eventually found ourselves at World of Beer sampling beers from around the world and taking embarrassing pictures (it never fails, does it?)

It’s all about balance, right? 🙂

Then Saturday was spent moving, which surprisingly didn’t take as long as we anticipated. We were completely done moving everything by early afternoon. I promise I’ll share pictures later! I want them to be high-quality and I need to finish unpacking/organizing/decorating before you get to see the finished product :-).

This weekend definitely had one common theme: beer.

Saturday night my friends Maddie, Bailey and I went to Brews Around the Zoo at the Central Florida Zoo. What an amazing night!

There were tents there with food from Seasons 52 (they served their desserts — let’s just say we went back for thirds), Tijuana Flats (chips & salsa), plenty of pizza, cheesecake, BBQ and obviously lots and lots of BEER!

My inner fat girl was so happy.

Tickets were a bit on the steep side — $40 — but I can assure you we definitely got our money’s worth… PLUS more. We will definitely be returning next year 🙂

Then, to balance it all out, we attempted to buy some fresh fruits and veggies at the Lake Eola Farmer’s Market on Sunday. Turns out half of Orlando got the memo that it was the 25th Annual Spring Fiesta in the Park, and we joined thousands of people for a beautiful day in the Orlando sun. So much fun!

I bought Cocoa the cutest dog collar there. How fun is this? It was custom-made by a brilliantly creative designer, Brooke from Dog Days Bowtique. I’ll definitely be paying her a visit again in the near future!

Also, some of you may have noticed that I stopped posting the workouts for my challenge. I’ll go into further detail about this in another post, probably tomorrow. Let’s just say I had a big ole slap in the face by reality. But I wanted to share some of the highlights of my weekend today!

What were the highlights of your weekend?!
