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.|

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.
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 : )
