Florida trip - Day 2

All ready for shopping!

We got up and had a light breakfast at the hotel and then went to the outlets! I love outlet shopping. It is sort of like an adventure and you never know what deals you will find. There are so many different outlets in Florida that it’s hard to choose which one to go to. We ended up going to the Orlando Premium Outlets. They have over 150 stores and it is a little overwhelming.



I got hubby that t-shirt from Polo, the sea horse and sand dollar necklaces at J.Crew, the tote at Coach and the bracelet, pouch and flip flops from J.Crew.

I got some cute tops from Banana Republic and J.Crew also!

After shopping, my mom wanted to check out a buffet for lunch. We went to the Golden Corral and it was disgusting. I don’t know why people think they can serve slop and call it a meal. I picked at a few things but pretty much ate bread. After lunch, we came back to the hotel and I swore I was going to nap for an hour but ended up taking another long 3+ hour nap. There is nothing like being on vacation and sleeping half of it away. I guess my body was trying to tell me something.

After my long nap, we decided to go down to the pool, but it was like an ice cube. Hubby told me that it was 93 degrees at home. It only reached 83 in FL…pretty unbelievable. We went to dinner at Don Pablo’s and it was yummy. I know it’s a silly chain Mexican restaurant, but I love it. We came back to the hotel after dinner and relaxed since we knew we had a long day ahead of us tomorrow.
