Las Paletas!

The sun is out in Nashville and Spring has sprung! 
One of my ABSOLUTE favorite things to do is walk out in the sunshine and head over to the locally famous popsicle store Las Paletas!

My favorite is the rose flavored popsicle, but J. L. likes lime.
They have all kinds of crazy flavors and were even featured on Bobby Flay's Food Network TV show "Throw Down with Bobby Flay!"


I love Nashville and the fact that local small businesses, like Las Paletas, do so well here!

What are you doing to ring in Spring?

Disney World's Epcot in a Day! Part II

Sorry I've been out of it so long! I got a new roommate and she moved in with a cold and I had the pleasure of getting an even nastier version of it! Ah! I've been so behind after being so sick that my blog was pushed back and back and back! But I'm back now! :)

Here are more pictures from our Disney adventure:

Belle was always my favorite princess :)
Epcot France was so much fun! I wanted to practice my French, but I was surrounded by native Frenchmen/women and I got too intimidated... lame. 

But my creme brulee made me feel better.

 We had way too much fun here!


Japan was J. L.'s favorite!

Germany was great!

And so was China!

We ended the night in Mexico!


What a great trip around the "world" :)

"I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)" - The Proclaimers
"War in My Blood" - Fiction Family
"Until You" - Dave Barnes

And they're off!

 

I'm packing up to head to Disney World and then to visit bf's parents in Illinois! Hurray for road trips!

I'll be taking tons of picture and I'll blog when I can, but I hope you have a splendid week! :)

In the key that our souls were singing
As we danced in the night,
Remember how the stars stole the night away"

Midweek Award!

One test down and a few to go! I'm half way there!

Do you ever notice no matter what how busy you get and how crazy your life gets you always manage to get through it?
I tend to stress out and be a mess until everything is accomplished, but I've decided to take up a new motto:

It will get done, just breathe.

This is not to slack, but to prevent myself from stressing out the way I usually do.
That being said, I want to say thank you to
Samantha 
for this lovely award!
 
So are you girl!
 
Thanks to everyone for all of the great suggestions about the blog reading!

Also, Chelsea told me that my button isn't working! I'm having a friend help me with it and it should be up soon! I'll keep you posted!

Also, this is random, but I LOVED this!
