honeymoon: orlando, florida

tired travelers

better late than never with this post, right?!

at the beginning of may, randy and i went on our honeymoon! my in-laws graciously bought us a cruise. it departed from port canaveral, florida, so randy and i decided to fly in a couple days early to enjoy orlando. neither of us had been to florida before, so we were excited!

we fly into orlando, and it is pouring rain.. great start to a vacation, huh? after a full day of flying, we grabbed dinner and knocked out. we had plans to go to disney world the next day, but with the rain, it was looking a little bleak..

we woke up the next morning with a little gloom, but no rain, so we decided to continue with our disney plans.

we had been debating which park to go to, as there are 3 or 4 different park at disney world. everyone suggested epcot, but after reading up on it, we found it is was more of an informational park. obviously, we only wanted to have fun - no information for us on our honeymoon! so we decided to go to magic kingdom.

since we live in southern california, we've been to disney land quite a bit. because of this, i can't say i was blown away by magic kingdom. but we do enjoy disney land, so it was fun to be with randy at a 'new' theme park.

our second day in orlando we spent at an outlet that was right next to our hotel. randy and i both got some goodies, including a new pair of nikes (mine were only $45!). we had a nice dinner at the hotel, then spent some time in the hot tub. we had to get packed up because the next day we departed on our cruise!

stay tuned for photos from our cruise!


mumford & sons! / 24 before 25

yesterday, randy and i went to see mumford & sons at the san manuel amphitheater in san bernardino, ca! [now i'm half-way done with #4!]

i had never been to this venue before, but i actually really liked it! it's right near the san manuel indian casino, so it is surrounded by mountains. when we were in the actual amphitheater, it felt like such a secluded area. randy and i had lawn seats, so even though the bands were little ant people (monitors helped), getting to sprawl out on the grass was quite nice!


sorry about the dirty feet! a 2-mile trek across dirt roads in itty bitty sandals was a blast..

mumford & sons put on such a great show! they're an amazing band live. marcus mumford has arguably the world's best voice. i would definitely recommend seeing them if you can get your hands on tickets.
