It’s Warm Out There!!

I’m here in wonderfully warm Florida!  It is so nice to wear sandals again.  Oh, and shorts too!!

The morning started out early for me.  I had a 5 am flight out of Minot, so that means I had to be up at 2:10 am in order to be ready to head out of the house by 2:45 am.  All went well, and before I knew it, I was in Minneapolis waiting for my flight to Orlando.


I had a 3 hour layover, so I had a bit of time to kill.  I spent my time being massively productive.  NOT!!  I sat down with my latte, book, and magazines and started reading.  I also hit Pinterest pretty hard too, and I had added quite a few more pins before my flight boarded.


When I landed in Florida it was in the upper 70s and it felt great!  I got my luggage and car rental, and headed straight to the hotel.  I’m staying at the Hilton, and I’ll have some great pictures of it for ya later.


Sadly I only had 10 minutes to clean up and get changed before I had to meet my parents for dinner.  I did pretty good for only having a few minutes to get ready.


We had dinner at one of my favorite restaurants in Orlando, Brio Tuscan Grille, located inside the Mall of Millennia.  I always love everything on their menu.  We started our meal out with the bruschetta quatro, a bruschetta sampler platter.  They offer different bruschetta’s throughout the year, and last night for our 4 different bruschetta samplers we had sliced steak, roasted red pepper, goat cheese with caramelized onions and tomatoes, and antipasti bruschetta.  As for dinner…I always have a hard time deciding since everything is always so flavorful and delicious.  However, I do have a favorite, The Pasta Brio.  It is beyond delicious.  It is a rigatoni with a wonderful roasted red pepper sauce, grilled chicken, and mushrooms.  It is a light cream sauce with so much flavor.  I can tell you that it all tastes as wonderful as it all looks. 


After dinner I had to do a bit of shopping.  I mean, I had to be active and burn some of my dinner off, and what better way than hitting Lululemon and getting some more workout clothing!  I had a wonderful associate help me burn those calories off by trying on a bunch of clothing.  It also turned out that she and I have a common friend!  It is always a small world.  I’ll be wearing my new purchases while working on silks tomorrow at Vixen Studios.

Before I parted ways with my parents for the night we got a few pictures taken.  We will be meeting up tomorrow for dinner and more shopping!!
