Well I have been home from Orlando for a few days, and I still haven't made time to blog about it. Here are just some highlights of my trip. I will add pictures later, as soon as I find my cable, or use my other comp that has a card reader.

First, we (Erin, Melanee, and I) stayed at the HoJo. It was so nice to be able to relax. There was no pressure. We did what we wanted when we wanted. We slept in everyday and had a great time. The best part was for some reason at the HoJo I didn't feel self-conscience. I just swam in the pool if I wanted to or laid out. It was great. I am going to try to be like that more here at home.

On accident we found this really creepy town, Celebration. Apparently it is a master planned community by none other than Disney. To give you an idea of what it is like there just know the movie Pleasantville was filmed there. For more information on this town click here. I have some video that I will post.

On Tuesday we went to Daytona Beach. There were not very many people there it was perfect weather and we stayed just the right amount of time.

On Wednesday we did something that I have always wanted to do. We went on an air boat ride. So much fun! If you are ever in Florida I highly recommend doing this. We saw one alligator, who was around 6-8 feet. But don't worry the tour guide let us know they are very docile creatures and are scared of humans. HA yeah right. When we were done they had an alligator that was about 3 years old for us to hold and pet. It was awesome. Well actually I didn't hold him.

Later that day we checked into the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort. All I have to say is Auh-mazing. it was gorgeous. Had a great pool and wonderful view. It was a great place to relax after working the event.

On Saturday we had a once in a lifetime opportunity, we got to see the space shuttle launch. We just caught the last part and I was amazed at how fast it went. I never thought I would get to see this happen but I did. If you ever get the chance to see one of these, do it!

Saturday night we went to Hard Rock Cafe for dinner. When we were done we were waiting for a cab and a fight broke out. Yeah a real fight one you see on cops. We were sitting there waiting for our cab to come and there was a group of teenage kids maybe late teens or early early 20's. I am going to dedicate a post to this event so stay tuned. This deserves much more attention than I can give it at 11 pm.

It was a great trip, but I was really glad to be home. I am just missing the humidity (it did wonders to my skin) the warmth, the pool, ah who am I kidding I miss it all.

On another note how do you like my new layout?
