I spent most of last week in Florida, finishing it off with the Orlando food blog forum conference at Disney World… which was ahhhmazing.

Now I’m home and whiney. Be glad you’re not here!

All photos courtesy of my iPhone. Oh! I also did something that included dumping an entire bag of pretzel crumbs directly on top of my DSLR mid-flight, and let’s just say there is pretzel dust in every crevice of my life.

these cost as much as a pair of shoes.

hello little creeper.

why isn’t this my back yard?

the eats at food blog forum were out.of.control.

this chocolate thing burst in your mouth and was drenched in cognac.

i love glitter.


what life should always be.

sugah sugah.

i bit off mickey’s ear. it wasn’t that great.

Now someone tell me how to get back in the groove. I need my groove back. Like Stella!

    Awesome pictures! Do you have any apps you use/tips for iPhone pictures?


    • Jessica — March 19th, 2012 @ 10:33 pm

      Thanks! I have over 20 photo apps but the ones I use the most: camera+, snapseed, idarkroom, finger focus, colorsplash, picframe.

    Ohhh my heavens. Here’s how you get your groove back…come babysit for me for say…a week. Then I’ll go do what you just did.

    …oh wait. That’s how I’m going to get my groove back. I’ve got nothing for you. Good luck!

    How fun!! I love Disney World. :) Every time I go, I have to get an ice cream sundae from the ice cream shop on Main Street and watch the night parade. Good memories!


    • Jessica — March 19th, 2012 @ 10:32 pm

      It was CLOSED. I wanted to cry.


      • Kristen @ notsodomesticated — March 20th, 2012 @ 10:15 am

        No way! I would have demanded vouchers, so that you could go back when it opened back up!

    Looks like just a horrible, awful, miserable trip. KIDDING

    Looks like a total BLAST and I have thought about going to this the past couple years and now I am kicking myself I didn’t.

    The water shot and the cupcakes and the macarons, oh my. And Ive seen pics on some other blogs of everyone who went. It looked AWESOME!

    Bethany — March 19, 2012 @ 4:59 pm

    I swear every bit of my news feed on facebook is taken up by people in Disneyworld. What. The. Deuce. And exactly my thoughts as I looked at the pic of macaroons. “How much did she pay for those??”

    CulinarilyCourtney — March 19, 2012 @ 5:00 pm

    Oh, dear. I don’t know which photo is better: that inviting blue ocean, or that delicious look plate of eggs benedict!!

    Brittany @ Life of a Bama Girl — March 19, 2012 @ 5:09 pm

    After looking at all your pictures I am starving! Everything looks so good! I hope you can get rid of all the pretzel dust. That sounds horrible!

    IDK My BFF Jes — March 19, 2012 @ 5:10 pm

    Oh.My.Gah.Girl! I want to jump through the screen and try all of those sweet eats! I can’t wait for the opporunity to go to Disney World so I can try some of those treats! After getting a visual sugar rush, I am def busing out some brownies tonight!

    Katrina — March 19, 2012 @ 5:17 pm

    Where did you purchase the French Macaroons?? I’ve been trying to perfect the art of making them, but have never actually TRIED a real one… they are, however, crazy fun to make.

    And where is this magical self-serve ice cream place? I go to Disneyworld yearly and have missed both these gems. Hence why yearly trips are necessary, there’s so much to eat… er, discover.


    • Jessica — March 19th, 2012 @ 10:31 pm

      The macarons and the froyo were actually from St. Pete! I was there with my brother before we went to Orlando.

    Jessica — March 19, 2012 @ 5:21 pm

    Looks like you had quite an amazing time. And coming home from a fantastic trip like that is an automatic free pass to be extreme whiny pants for at least 72 hours. You can’t fight #jesslaw.

    Rachel @ Baked by Rachel — March 19, 2012 @ 5:22 pm

    You’re killing me… I really wish I had been able to go this year. I’ll just keep telling myself – next year! :) Enjoy pizza and margaritas while watching some good ole American trashy tv… that’ll get you back in the groove ha

    Wow…what amazing trip! You have no idea how jealous I am that you got to go! Oh the joys of pregnancy. ;-) I’ve been having crazy dreams about wanting to go to Disney so bad I’d give up chocolate….forever! Sheesh. Anyway. It looks like you had an incredible time…and talk about incredible food!!!! Yum! P.S. I love that that macaron matches your nail polish. ;-) Now, go bake some cookies to get back in the groove! ;-)

    lynn @ the actor's diet — March 19, 2012 @ 7:57 pm

    oooh – i’m going to disneyworld in april – what would you say is a must-eat dessert?


    • Jessica — March 19th, 2012 @ 10:30 pm

      Even though these pictures say otherwise, we didn’t eat a ton of dessert actually in Disney – but the Dole Whip is really good!


      • Nicole H. — March 20th, 2012 @ 6:43 am

        Agreed!! You have to try a Dole Whip! I think you can only get them in Magic Kingdom.

      • Andrea — March 20th, 2012 @ 7:21 am

        I will actually be on a plane to Disney in two days. I am SO trying a Dole Whip!!!!

    Luv What You Do — March 19, 2012 @ 8:31 pm

    Your pictures are specatcular. I love all of the colorful shots of the castle. I work with kids that want to grow up and live in Cinderella’s castle one day : ) After a weekend like that I have NO IDEA how to find your groove. I spent LAST weekend in Las Vegas and I’m still looking for it! Glad you enjoyed yourself!

    Emily @ Perfection Isn't Happy — March 19, 2012 @ 8:43 pm

    I’m jealous…but that looks like so much fun! My fiance’s sisters and parents are going to Disney World for their Spring Break, but we are not. We have to be grown-ups and go to work and stuff :).

    Living The Sweet Life — March 19, 2012 @ 9:26 pm

    I commend you for not running away, and attempting to live in Disney forever – – I would have. I’m tempted to do so, just from your pictures :$

    There’s no getting your groove back until you forget the amazingness of Disney World.

    Now I want to go back.
