Just because you can’t go on a fancy vacation doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some time off. Why not plan a stay-cation, a vacation right in your own back yard?
We recently enjoyed a stay-cation here in Orlando, and here are four rules we followed to make it great.
Sherri over at Young House love has posted the latest edition of the “Pinterest Challenge,” and if you haven’t seen it yet, it’s a must-read. Sherri’s project, a pouf chair, is great, but what’s really amazing is the wealth of great ideas in the link-up. I haven’t even begun to read them all–there’s already more than 600 posted–but I am so impressed by all the talent and creativity.
My entry in the Pinterest Challenge is a project I completed some time ago, but never got around to posting on the blog. I was looking for a special meal to serve on Christmas morning, and I remembered this tasty-looking pin for overnight blueberry french toast from my recipes board on Pinterest.
Orlando’s Magical Dining Month is a great opportunity to try new restaurants or old favorites with a very affordable prix fixe menu, all while raising money for Boys & Girls Club of Central Florida. The event was held in September, and we had a chance to try two restaurants this year. We sampled one new location, K Wine Bar in Orlando’s College Park neighborhood, and one old favorite, Funky Monkey Wine Company at Pointe Orlando in the International Drive area.
