Ringing in 2019

We took a last minute trip to Vegas for Christmas and, I'm not going to lie, the time change returning home kicked my butt. My body clock was all off and I felt like I had a migraine for 3 days straight. Yet I stuck to the plan and hosted a NYE party for friends and neighbors.

Happy New Year!

I Hope You Dance

The Weekend When 2017 Arrived

Happy new year everyone! 

I've never taken a true "staycation" before but the past week off of work has been pure bliss with lots of relaxing, shopping and adventures with the sis, and ringing in 2017 with new friends/neighbors on NYE.


K and I took my sister to Islands of Adventure at Universal Studios. It happened to be the coldest day of the year in Florida so we tried to fit in as much as we could before the sun went down.

We waited 2 hours in line to go on Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey ride but that was definitely a must for my sister to get the full experience. We didn't get to taste butter beer because the lines were crazy. K went on the Incredible Hulk Roller Coaster while Leah and I opted for some browsing through the stores. 

We caught the Grinchmas Who-liday Show which was cute but I couldn't keep my eyes open for all of it.

We went on the Adventures of Spider-Man 3D ride and a few others but the lines were over an hour for most of the popular rides including Jurassic Park.

K and I just signed up for annual passes so we have a whole year to cover both of Universal's theme parks. Merry Christmas to us!


Since my parents were supposed to be in town for NYE, we never made any official plans so we threw a small last minute shindig for our neighbors which was low key but we had tons of fun and I love that I have really cool neighbors!


We relaxed all morning and cleaned up the house. In the evening we headed to International Drive to go on the Orlando Eye observation wheel and then have dinner at one of our favorite tapas and art restaurants in the area.

It was the perfect end to a weekend full of fun and celebrations. Luckily I have today off of work to unwind and get organized/mentally prepared for the work week ahead.

Cheers to 2017

2016 was a great year filled with travel, weddings, baby arrivals, celebrations with friends and all that life has to offer. I shared a recap of 2016 in three parts if you care to read my life's happenings and whereabouts throughout the year.

It was a fun one!

Wishing you all the best for 2017!

Happy 2016

I hope everyone had a great time ringing in the new year last night and maybe enjoyed some champagne or an adult beverage of some sort while watching the fireworks. I'm in Ft Lauderdale for the weekend visiting friends and enjoying the summer-like weather on the beach. You can follow my adventures on Instagram and sometimes SnapChat (emilyalisonb) when I remember to actually use it.

I posted part 1 and part 2 of my 2015 year recap recently which goes to show it was a fantastic year spent keeping very busy with traveling and celebrating all the little (and big) things in life. 

A new year is here so cheers to many more adventures and the making of fabulous memories in 2016! 

Happy New Year!

Hope everyone has a great NYE night and I'm looking forward to making many more bloggy friendships in the new year!

Happy New Year!

Just a quick post to wish everyone a Happy New Year! 

I've been on vacation for the past week visiting family and friends in Trinidad & Tobago. NYE was spent touring the beautiful beaches of Tobago during the day and then ringing in 2014 with friends later in the night. I'll be back to the bloggy world/reality next week with a full update.

Hope your 2014 is filled with lots of love and laughter!
