Visit Orlando's Magical Dining Experience + Magical Nights

*Disclaimer.  Our Visit Orlando Magical Dining + Magical Nights experience was a hosted event.  All opinions are my own.  Thank you to Visit Orlando, The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin and to Il Mulino for having us!*

    Hey guys!  We literally just got back from Orlando today and I am sitting down with my laptop to share last nights Magical Dining + Magical Nights Experience! This promotion runs until October 17th so there is still plenty of time to visit Orlando and take advantage of these great prices!!

    Let me start by explaining what Visit Orlando's Magical Dining is all about!  This year in particular they are showcasing 16 "sweet" years of Orlando's top cuisine.  There are more than 80 fine dining restaurants participating that offer a $37 fixed price 3 course meal! You can actually go ahead and view the restaurants and their set menus by visiting  On top of that you can actually Dine, Stay and Play with Visit Orlando's Magical Nights!  There are lots of packages and exclusive discounts to check out and explore! Visitors can save up to 40% which makes planning the perfect family fun weekend getaway or a romatic weekend escape that much easier! There are more than a dozen hotel options to choose from including The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotel!  

If you were following along on my Instagram Stories then you saw we spent our weekend at The Walt Disney World Swan Hotel.  This hotel had the entire family smiling the whole weekend!  I mean, talk about magical!! Not only is Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin gorgeous but they offer so much!  The location could not be more perfect and the pools/beach area kept the girls busy all day.  I'll be following up with a complete hotel review in an additonal blog post! 

     Our Magical Dining experience was at Il Mulino which is located inside the resort!  (Make sure once you decide on your restaurant to go ahead and make your reservations since Magical Dining is a popular experience!)   I will say that if you love Italian Food you may just want to go ahead and reserve your table at Il Mulino because it was incredible! Below you can see what our Magical Dining 3 course menu looked like.  I went ahead and ordered the meatballs, rigatoni and flourless cake! Elton chose the calamari, salmon and Tiramisu.  Every single item was delicious! My Rigatoni con Funghi literally left me speechless! You can not go wrong choosing Il Mulino that is for sure! 

    I snapped some pictures of my choices before I finished them all!! I did let Ava help me with the chocolate cake! 

     Of course while doing a little Italian dining you need some table vino! Our waiter was great at helping us choose the perfect red.  When I say the whole experience was magical I mean it! The staff at Il Mulino made us feel like we were all old friends catching up! They went out of thier way to make sure the whole family was enjoying the evening and none of thier hospitality went unnoticed.  We will definitely be back! 

  Our entire weekend was (not to sound cheesy) MAGICAL! We are already thinking of planning another trip to Swan and Dolphin and taking advantage of some of the park conveniences they offer! 

    There you have it!  A little recap of our Magical Dining Experience + Magical Nights!   I want to add that Il Mulino was stunning inside and definitely a great romantic date night choice.  We had the girls with us which was also totally fine.  It made for a wonderful family date night! Another family fun weekend in Orlando!!

Neutrals by BEHR Paint

I've been working on a project for the past two weeks and what always seems to be the most challenging part is choosing paint colors.  I have been wanting to find a nice neutral that isn't too "Gray" and isn't too "Beige" but not too white either. I personally like the look of white walls in pictures but in reality I'm not a huge fan.  Also, I like to see a contrast between painted walls and white trim.  Each time I look over on Pinterest for inspiration I find lots of suggestions for other paint brands..but I'm a BEHR girl :)  We spend so much time at Home Depot it just makes more sense for us.  That being said I decided to share with all of you my suggestions for finding the perfect "light Greige" by BEHR Paints!   To start off with here are three options that are lighter/cooler but will still show a nice contrast next to white. 1. Drizzle 2. Sterling 3. Halation These three options are als

Weekend in Miami!

  Over the past weekend we drove down to Miami and spent the night at our favorite beach front hotel..Marenas Resort.  It was our anniversary weekend and wanted to go somewhere we could have fun with the whole family. This is now the second time we have taken the girls to this particular resort (which is pretty impressive because both my husband and I love trying new places.) This resort offers "condo style" rooms which is awesome when traveling with children, has a really good onsite restaurant and is located right on Sunny Isles Beach.  The standard suite has views of both the ocean and the harbor. Stunning views! They also do NOT charge extra for beach chairs and umbrellas which is almost unheard of now a days.  It's moderately priced for everything your getting in this location. These are the views off the patios and around the pool.  I just love Miami's water! Its such a beautiful color and reminds me of the Bahamas!  We spent
