Florida Recap

Home at last!  We had a fun time in Florida, but I'm glad to be back to our animals, non-extreme heat, and our daily routines.  I spent some time sewing this weekend; among other adventures - but thought I'd share some pictures from the trip.

When we first arrived, we went to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studio's, followed by Disney's Animal Kingdom.

Entering Hogsmeade

In line for the main ride. There was a cool clip of Harry, Ron and Hermione using the invisibility cloak.

I started the Colette Parfait dress today and plan to have it finished by the end of the week.  First, I have to get back to dance class!  Oh, and I completed the adjustments to my Highland jacket, so now I just need to add the final silver trim and buttons.  It will be a lot of hand stitching but I think it's looking really great so far.  I'll keep you posted!


  1. Looks like you had a wonderful time! My kids want to go to Universal Studios to see Hogwarts too. That's on the agenda for the next Florida trip.

  2. When you do go to Florida, feel free to send me a message and I can give you some tips about Hogwart's. It was fun but I luckily had friends who were able to give advice about lines, logistics, etc. :)

    You know how they keep the lion up there during the summer? They have an ac vent there, and they give them rabbit popsicles. The things you learn on a backstage tour...
