Show Us Your Life - Favorite Vacation Spots

It's SUYL Friday's at Kelly's Korner, and this week it's all about your Favorite Vacation Spots! Adam and I actually have several, but I'll just post about a couple since I can't choose just one! ;)

Home - Pensacola Beach, FL

We LOVE the beach! It's amazing that we live just 30 short minutes from the beach! (20 if the traffic is good!) And we're so lucky to have that sugar white sand still!! I remember a year ago on Mother's Day, Adam and I went out to the beach to walk around one last time before the oil hit. I scooped up some sand to keep in case it got really messed up, but thankfully we didn't get hit very hard by the oil. It's so peaceful out there, and when we went last Saturday the water and the breeze were PERFECT! I couldn't have asked for a better beach day! It was so much FUN! :)

Universal Studios & Islands of Adventure in Orlando, FL

Adam and I took our first trip to Orlando last Fall! It was the first time either of us had been there since we graduated from High School in 2001 and we went down for Grad Night. And of course I couldn't wait to get down there and see The Wizarding World of Harry Potter! It was FANTASTIC!! :) So great in fact that when we went down to Largo, FL in January of this year, we made a stop for a couple days in Orlando on our way home and went to the parks again! :) I LOVE Harry Potter! haha I ended up with a Gryffindor robe, 3 wands, and Harry Potter sleep pants of course. And we were able to eat at The Three Broomsticks which is YUMMY! I highly recommend you eat there if you go. They have roasted chicken, salads, and all kinds of other yummy good and the prices are around $10-$12 per plate. So CHEAP!!! The rest of Islands of Adventure is a blast too! Suess Landing is adorable; the roller coasters are fast and fun; and walking through Jurassic Park and the Comics areas are a lot of fun too! :) You can read more about our trip here!

Us at Hagrid's Hut!

Us at Sneech Beach!

We do love Universal Studios too! :) Men In Black, Rip Ride Rocket, Terminator and the Costume Makeup show are a few of our favs!

We have stayed on site both times we went, and it's so easy to take a river taxi or walk from the hotel to both parks and City Walk for dinner. It's really relaxing being there and we always enjoy being there! I can't wait to go back!!

We also LOVED our trip to Europe at the end of 2008! We were lucky enough to travel with Adam's parents for 10 days through London, Paris and Belgium! It was a whirlwind trip, but we had SO MUCH FUN!!! I'll have to post about that one day soon! :)
