Sanding Ovations – Treasure Island
Sanding Ovations in Treasure Island, Florida seems to be a new family tradition for the week of Thanksgiving! The last two years we have enjoyed the event while family comes to town in November.

Spooky Season Bars -St Pete
Looking for a festive place to enjoy happy hour this Florida fall and winter? Look no further than our two favorite themed establishments in the heart of our beautiful city – Dracula’s Legacy Wine Bar & Bistro and directly next door – The Ale & The Witch Tap House in downtown St Pete. It is the best of both worlds during spooky season!
Disney – Epcot International Festival of Arts 2022
Sometimes people ask us- “why do you love Disney so much, isn’t it just for kids?” You definitely don’t need children to enjoy the wonders of Walt Disney World- especially with festivals, food, and drinks like this!! Adulting at Disney is our favorite kind of adulting- and one of our most favorite times to go is during the Epcot International Festival of Arts! Definitely in our top favorites of the Epcot festivals!
Favorite St Pete Beaches – Pass-a-grille Beach
One of the biggest reasons we chose to move to the St Petersburg, FL area seven years ago was the beaches – duh!! We originally fell in love with the Treasure Island and Madeira Beach areas but there’s a true gem just south of there and past the pink castle in the sand (The Don Cesar Hotel) called Pass-a-grille.
Running my First Disney Race… I mean races…. I mean like all of the races!
Big Announcement and I can’t believe I’m saying this out loud….
Disney – Guardians of the Galaxy: AP Preview Weekend
In May of 2022, after being Annual Passholders for over 5 years, we finally scored our first ever passholder preview for a brand-new ride!!! Guardians of the Galaxy- Cosmic Rewind at Walt Disney World’s Epcot! It was incredible and definitely now my favorite ride at Disney! It’s now officially open to the public and absolutely worth the Lightning Lane!
Fabrica Pizza – St Pete
Fabrica Pizza in Downtown St Pete has been on my list to try ever since I saw the yummy and enticing social media posts on the Fabrica Instagram and Facebook. A+ marketing finally got us in the door and we weren’t disappointed!
Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Golden Statues
Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary is an 18-month celebration—which kicked off October 1, 2021, and features Golden character statues in each of the four Disney parks. It was so fun and satisfying to find and take photos of each of them over a couple of visits during the celebration! Yay for being annual pass holders and for park hopping!
Walt Disney World – 2022 Disney Marathon
I can’t let another day pass by without finally sharing (and bragging) about Mark’s first full marathon and our first ever Disney Marathon weekend – he did incredible and it was fantastic!
