Sequins and Sea Breezes: Weekending

Weekending

8/04/2014

So much for a nice and relaxing weekend! I swear I jinx myself every time I say I'm going to lay around and do nothing all weekend so instead I need to start saying I'm going to be super busy. I ended up having a 3-day weekend (not by planning) when I woke up on Friday with a massive headache and decided to call in. While I wish I could say that day was super relaxing, it definitely wasn't. But the good part about having a busy/fun weekend means I actually have pictures to share with you guys and I can link up with Biana and Meghan for Weekending!



Like I said, I started out my weekend on a not so great note with a massive headache but after several ibuprofen and a little nap I felt like eating and acting like a human again.
 
 
Saturday I trekked down to Downtown Disney for some adult libations and some fun in the sun. I can't go to Downtown Disney without stopping by T-Rex Cafe so we hit that up first and after a few Caveman Punches and Raptor Ritas and of course a Footprints Flatbread we decided to hop on the bus and head over to the Swan & Dolphin resort. 


I've never snuck into a hotel pool before so I was pretty nervous but once we got in it was total relaxation. The main pool was packed so we went to one of the smaller lap pools for a bit. This ended up being the best move since the smaller pools were almost completely abandoned. Make sure if you're drinking that you drink enough to not care about your bill at the end of the day. Otherwise your full day of relaxing goes right out the window when you see how much their drinks are! 


Once we got seats over at the main pool we realized how different the two pools really are. This is definitely the party pool! After going down the slide a few dozen times we finally decided to head out. 


I have an obsessed with Stitch from Lilo & Stitch so of course I had to take a picture with him! Random fact, I can even talk like Stitch!


Saturday night I met up with one of my oldest and closest friends for some Mexican and margaritas. She just had twins a few months ago and lives in Ft. Myers so I don't get to see her often but I love when I do!


Try not to judge my awful hair. The air conditioning was broke in the room we were in so it was at least 85 degrees in there. I'm convinced it was probably cooler outside!

Sunday was spent doing household chores, taking pictures for the blog this week and grocery shopping! I'm finally back to doing fashion posts this week (yay!) so hopefully you guys like them! 


Oh I did buy these online on super sale at AE.com for only $20! Can't wait to get them... hopefully they fit!

Be sure to check out The Blogger Closet on Instagram today, tomorrow and Wednesday as I'm taking it over to share with you my outfits of the day! I'll be putting up a sneak peek of my Tuesday post today so check it out! :)

Hope everyone has an amazing week!

  34. The pool day sounds fun! I've snuck into a few of the resort pools and they charge a killing for drinks. We usually try to sneak in some beer and hope they don't notice. I've yet to try T-Rex cafe but hear it's pretty good!
