Quite a few things have changed for us this year, I’m sure in your family too. One thing that was have made a habit of doing each and every year was ICE at Gaylord Palms. (see last year’s post here)
Missing it was actually something that I was worried about as the summer rolled around and things were canceled or postponed.
Once I saw Gaylord Palms announce it’s holiday lineup I knew we had to go.

I asked my husband what his favorite holiday flavor was going into the Christmas season… and was a little surprised when he said Egg Nog. Now, I absolutely love Egg Nog — always have–but I try not to buy it because I will non-stop drink it. Do you have any food like that?
So when he mentioned Egg Nog, I was glad I could buy some and use it to bake with.

As a mom, the closer the time came for Halloween, the more worried I was about taking trick or treating away from my kids. I wasn’t sure what it was going to look like. What houses we would go to, or if anyone would even have their lights on. Anyone else know the feeling?

I feel like it’s a toss up when you ask people what their Halloween plans are. I know most of it has to do with the area they are in… but also so many of our favorite Halloween events have been canceled. I already know with a 95% certainty we will not be trick or treating, simply because our neighborhood isn’t doing it. (Most of our neighbors keep to themselves anyway – imagine a street with all of the porch lights off…that’s where we live.)

Our Fall must do list has dramatically changed from previous years. I think the frustrating part is I don’t know what will be open, what will be limited and what will be so overcrowded that we would need to avoid it all together.

I’ve started my pumpkin baking season already, and I’m not sorry about it one bit. I figure, if I only have 2/3 months that I can, I might as well enjoy it. I also added some of my sourdough discard into it on a whim and it totally worked.

I was a huge fan of diaper cakes when they first came out. They were cute, they stood out and who didn’t need diapers on diapers? Although the are still a great gift, I think everyone expects a diaper cake or two.

While in Orlando last month, we wanted to experience a little of the Disney magic but without going to a park. With the new reservation system currently in place, we were not able to just pop on over. I get it, no worries… it gave us time to discover new areas of Disney that we don’t get to see.

It’s not a surprise how much I love Orlando. Tons of things to do and something for any interest you may have. Orlando can be exhausting though. When there are too many places to go, it feels like you are always in a rush and can never fully enjoy one thing before rushing off to the next.

What are your favorite parts of trail mix? Salty and sweet right?
I ALWAYS find that these are the two ingredients missing from our trail mix after my kids have gone through it. So instead of sad lonely peanuts at the bottom of the bag, I thought we could make our Mickey trail mix out of the best parts. The salt and the sweet.
