Orlando was amazing. It was just what I needed; simple & different than the norm. I desperately needed a change of scenery for a while. We stayed at a fabulous resort and enjoyed being a part of the Independent Jewelers Organization show that was taking place at the same time. Brandon's parents are jewelers and own a store in Beaufort, so we were able to help them "work" while in Orlando. This work meant spending a day in the buying room, looking at amazing jewelry on Sunday & picking out new items for their store. (You can imagine how much I loved that!) We were also able to pick out wedding bands ...well, I did at least.
Brandon's parents took us to Universal Studios on Monday, which meant I finally was able to see the "Harry Potter World." It was really a neat thing to experience! Also, while in Orlando, I had my FIRST spa day. I've never splurged on a facial, surprisingly, and seemed to have picked a good place to start. The facial I had was a dream --and now, I'm addicted! I've already been scoping out the menus at the different spas in Charleston. Local gals --got any great recommendations?
Ok...here are a handful of iPhone pics from the trip:
|OPI Affair in Times Square Manicure -- First trip to Nordstrom! (lots of firsts)|
|On the left is a display of some of Elizabeth Taylor's jewelry! I got to hold it, too. -- Pool at our resort is on the right.|
|Brandon brought back the shirt around the waist -- "It's soo fluffy!!" (Please tell me you recognize this quote!)|
