A Peak In(stagram) My Offline Life: Weddings, Anniversaries, Arctic Animals, C-RV's & More!

So you may have been wondering where I have been the last few weeks. I thought that I would give you a little play by play through the lens of my Instagram account!

For Memorial Day weekend, Justin and I took a little trip to Sea World Orlando. We were so excited to get to experience the new Expedition Antarctica penguin exhibit which we ended up waiting in line until 11:30 at night to see (the park closes at 10:00)

Up close and personal with the penguins. The lights were dimmed to simulate evening in Antarctica. Side note: there was no glass between me and the penguins, just a little wall.
 The next day we went back to the park in anticipation of our Wild Arctic Close Up Experience tour where we got to go behind the scenes with a group of 10 people to meet, help train and interact with arctic seals, beluga whales and a 3,000 pound walrus. It was an amazing experience and I highly recommend it anyone who wants to do a little something extra at Sea World Orlando. 

No cameras were allowed on the tour but here is me being very excited with my ticket.
Even though we had been to Sea World at least 5 times we had never done the Turtle Trek ride and here is a little friend from the exhibit while waiting for the ride.

 My sister got married on June 1st and in typical me fashion the only photos I actually had on my phone/instagramed where of food and drinks : )

Champagne Cupcakes and initial cookies that I made for the welcome bbq on the Thursday night before the wedding.
Cocktails at the Rehearsal Dinner
I had teacher workdays the Monday-Wednesday after my sister's wedding and on Wednesday afternoon Justin and I did what all sane people do and headed to the car dealership and bought a new to us 2011 C-RV. It is the closest to new car either of us has ever had and I am completely in love with it. 
So excited!
 I spent my first real few days of summer by the pool reading the 5th book in the Game of Thrones series, A Dance With Dragons. It was everything I hoped it would be and I cannot believe I have to wait until 2014 for the 6th book to be published. Anyone else as obsessed as I am ?


Finally, June 12th was our 3rd wedding anniversary. We were in Miami staying at my aunt and uncles while I attended iTeach Academy but since it was our anniversary we decided to jump on Priceline and spring for a hotel room for the night. Even though we paid $80 for our room with an express bid deal, Justin mentioned it was our anniversary at check in and we were upgraded to a gorgeous suite. It was quite possibly one of the nicest hotel rooms I have ever stayed in : )
