Disney World


Most of you who know me, know that I love a fancy dinner, a big party or an epic night out on the town for my birthday.  But boy have things changed since becoming a Mommy!  This year, Isabella said she wanted to “take Mommy to Disney World” for my birthday – so who am I to question Izzy’s birthday plans for her Mommy!  I am so glad we did just that, because we had a fabulous birthday weekend, especially since my Mom (Izzy’s Nana) got to join!  And luckily, I was already headed to Orlando for work, to attend the Gartner ITXpo Symposium conference.  So I just tacked on an early weekend (which happened to fall perfectly in time with my bday weekend) to the trip and voila! We had an awesome time and it was a trip to remember for a lifetime with my Mom and Isabella!

For this trip we got a gorgeous suite at The Waldorf Astoria in Orlando, Florida.  As you can see Nana and Izzy loved the view!  It was an amazing suite complete with separate rooms, living area, kitchen, bar and 2 bathrooms.  Here are a couple of pics of Nana and Izzy on the plane ride over and them getting comfy in the suite!

The Waldorf went out of their way to welcome us for the weekend by having personalized treats for us each night and they even sent me cupcakes after I checked out and checked into another room for my work week!   Here are some of our treats!

After enjoying the room for the first couple of hours the first night, we decided to head to the Food and Wine Festival at Epcot Center!  It was so yummy – wish I had taken more pics but I was busy eating!!

The next day, I woke up to this beautiful view near my bed and this even more amazing view from our balcony!

On Saturday, we spent the whole day at Disney World and it was absolutely magical!  Saturday was also my birthday and I got the BEST gift ever – to be able to enjoy Disney with my Mom and daughter!
