Catching up!

It's been a while since I've done a post about what we've been up to that wasn't about Disney or building our house.

We've been enjoying the Florida sunshine.

Kidding.  Actually, as much as people have thought we were crazy for moving to Florida right before summer, it hasn't been that bad.  It's amazing how much you really get used to the heat and humidity.  Living on the coast helps, most days are usually a good 5 degrees cooler than the center of the State and we've had a number of days where it was warmer in Rochester than it was here in Melbourne!

Disney Dining Review: Backlot Express and Starring Rolls

The other weekend I went up to Hollywood Studios with a new friend.  (Yay for new friends!)

I've never had anything I liked there.

Disney Dining Review: Captain Cooks/Aloha Isle

A few weeks ago I decided I needed a little Disney magic in my life, so I went up to the Magic Kingdom for the day.

Future Home Part 7: A Preview!

I swear we've been doing more here in Florida, but this seems to be the most exciting thing happening in our lives right now.

We stopped by the house again this afternoon after we finished work. We have vents and electrical!  Geoff took a video, so here's a guided tour of our house:
