<3 Weekends!

There is something about this weekend that made me smile! Especially when it's a unusually cool in South Florida. When you combine cool weather, yummy pancakes for breakfast, lazy Saturday on the couch, and then dinner at a nice restaurant outside with a glass of wine, definitely brings a smile to me face!
Please weekend don't end..Pretty please!

Cake Tasting!

Friday is my day off! So Lover and I decided to take advantage of the day, and go to our cake tasting! This is the one thing lover was looking forward for! It was overall a OK experience. Our venue includes the cake in our package. Which is a good/bad thing. It basically means we have no other choice but to choose their preferred cake vendor.
So fast forward to the cake tasting part! We tried a bunch of different flavors {See pictures below} They were all reasonably good! I was bit disappointed with the Chocolate Godiva. I thought it was going to be a for sure winner, but nope! It was just not "fudgy" enough. We settle between 2 flavors {Marble and Vanilla Rum.} These two flavors were juicy, moist, but best of all delicious!
We also decided on butter cream. A lot of people prefer fondant mostly because of it;s sleek look, but luckily both lover and I are not fondant fans. I think that was the easiest decision we made!
The only thing that is pending now is the design. We saw a cake {pictured below} that was similar to what we might want. We have plenty of time to come up with our dream cake, so now the research starts! Till then, enjoy our experience...

Sampling begins

Loving the details on this cake

Done sampling!

We Salute:

{Happy Veteran's Day}

Weekend Part II

It is a tradition to always stop by the Outlets while being in Orlando. On Sunday, before we headed back home, we decided to do a little shopping..I decided to enter the Coach store and browse around for some good finds. Oh did I find things. I ended up splurging and buying a Coach passport cover, and a Coach wallet. I instantly fell in love! I was able to save $68! Who knows? I might have a reason to use that passport cover ;)
We also entered a Gourmet store, and bought a couple of things for the house. All in all it was a great trip! Maybe I'll post some pictures of our finds..

Weekend Adventure!

Last week we decided to plan a last minute trip to Orlando. Other friends of ours were heading up, so we decided "Why not?" We left Friday night en route to the happiest place in the world! Saturday we enjoyed a full day at Epcot's Annual Food & Wine Festival! We sampled delicious foods, from different parts of the country. Plus different wines, champagne, and beers. We had a great time! Next year will definitely be a repeat! Now I leave you with some pictures!!

The group minus me!

Can you spot the booty? That's Lover!

Lover and I decided to do some Irish car bombs!

I forgot the name, but this is a bowl of deliciousness!


Me! Sporting the Minnie ears :)

Our beer holder! Genius idea!

Good night Epcot! Thank you for a great time!
