I am so happy I was able to attend Stampin` Up! Leadership in Orlando Florida. It was a week full of fun, friendships, laughs, tears, learning and visiting with family and friends!
I thought I’d share some of my favorite highlights!
We arrived Orlando, and they tried hard to get us to upgrade. I wanted the yellow vette. I didnt get it..
The first night I got to stay “home” at Old Key West Resort – DVC Style!
I got my sushi fix, at Splitsville at Downtown Disney. This is called a Birthday cake Martini – it is one of my favs!
My sushi fix.

I am a disney lover. I am a big kit at heart. Wednesday I had 4 hours to go to Magic Kingdom to do my favorites.. Its A Small World, Haunted Mansion, and a Dole Whip Dessert and shop! It has been a LONG time since being able to go to a park. They now have wrist bands that are your room key, fast pass ticket, meal plans and more. Technology is crazy cool. Disney has an APP too, so that you can see how long the wait lines are at each park for each ride.
It’s A Small World – I so love this ride.
I’m a happy camper.
Getting scared at the Haunted Mansion.

A pretty flowering bush thingy! A Florida thing.
Heading to Tavares to surprise my parents at their new home – they had no idea we were coming. The first try – they were not home. The 2nd try.. perfect! To occupy our time, we ventured to Mt Dora.. the cutest little town with some very unique shops!
We found the best little cupcake shop in Mt Dora. Yum!

So, this is a photo of my parents. As I explained, they thought I was at Leadership in Texas (haha!). I totally got them good! They are snow birds and stay all winter in FL. They bought a home in Travares last July and I had not been to the house since they moved there. So, this was a good time to visit with them and see their new home. It was a short but nice visit. We were able to stay with them Sunday, Monday and part of Tuesday before flying home.
Ill share more tomorrow. In the meantime, make something pretty and get inky!!!
