I'm Back, and Met a New Friend

Well we made it to our resort on Saturday. This place was beautiful too! It was The Orange Lake Resort in Orlando. It was like a mini-vaca before the cruise. Here I am with my sister Susie and our good friend Cheryl. We got a late start because they insisted on picking me up from the airport, and we kind of got a little lost. But it was all good as you can see. Our room was like a mini apartment, with a full kitchenette with a dishwasher and dining-room table.

This is Stephanie. You can find her blog on my sidebar, Live.Love.Eat. She is my first blogger friend I have met. She and her family were gracious enough to come and meet me at the resort. They lived about 20 minutes away. We had a really nice time chatting away, having a cocktail, and she even shared her fish tacos with me! They were delicious too.

Here is a view of our pool. Isn't she pretty?

This is her son Tristan. He was adorable! I have to say how well mannered he was for a six year old boy who had to occupy himself for a few hours!

Here she is with her husband. He's pretty adorable too, don't you think?

What a nice looking family. It was so nice to meet them. Thank-you for coming Steph, and I hope I get the chance to see you again!

Well, I missed everyone and I hope you had a good week. I'll get some pictures of my cruise up soon. For now though, I have a lot to do to catch up around here! Have a great start to your week.



  1. Welcome back and have fun! I've missed your post! Give Stella a hug!

  2. "Fish Tacos"... Goodness Gracious!

  3. Welcome back Ronda!! I bet there was an enthusiastic greeting from your litte Stella! How fun to meet Stephanie and her family. I remember when I met Preppy, I felt like we had known each other for ages. Looking forward to the cruise pictures!! xoxo

  4. LOL. Yay, you're back!!!!!!!!!!!! I am glad to hear you had a great time and it was SO awesome to meet you!!!!!! I've yet to post our time but I will soon! I want some more fish tacos :)

    Come on by, I think you'll love the dessert I made. It's one of my favs!

  5. HI came over from Stephs blog! Just wanted to say Hello. I love family all live in Virginia and we use to always go to Popes Creek to eat.

  6. I love Fish, and I love Tacos...but putting fish in a Taco is like putting peanut butter and prunes together for a sandwich. Of course, I could be wrong...

  7. How fun. I'm dying to meet so many of you in person. I think my husband thinks I'm nuts. xoxo


  8. I couldn't leave for the weekend without saying have a fun one yourself! I think you could use a quiet one with all your travels lately but I know you are the kinda gal no one can keep down. So where's the party this weekend?? :) xoxo

    ps - I tried leaving a comment on this post a few days but it wouldn't let me. Better late than never. ;)

  9. It is fun meeting new friends. By the smiles on everyone's face I think it is fair to say you had a good time. xoxo
