Food and Wine Festival

#1. Mom came to visit! I had four lovely days off that I got to spend with my mommy. We spent two nights at Bay Lake Tower at the Contemporary and then two days at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. We got to eat at Via Napoli and Les Chefs de France (and may I say that both restaurants had the HOTTEST guys working). It was so nice- we got to do what we wanted, when we wanted- just me and my mommy! I can't wait for the whole family, minus Maggie ): , to come visit in just 11 days!!

#2. I am currently not working at Port Orleans. For the time being, I am working at the Epcot Food and Wine Festival. It is so much different from my regular job, because this is in a park, it is outside, and I have to learn so many things in such a little amount of time. I am working in the "red zone", which includes these kiosks: Ireland, Canada, Greece, Australia, Hawaii, and a Desserts and Champagne booth. The festival just started yesterday, and so the only food I tried was in Irleland. Fisherman's pie and chocolate lava cake? YES PLEASE. I'm a little more than upset that I'm not 21 so I can't sample all of the alcohol, but you better bet your patootie that the DAY I turn 21 I will be back in Epcot drinking around the world!

#3. I can't stress to you enough how fun and how spectacular of a time I'm having here. Yes, I work a lot. Yes, I don't get to sleep as much as I'd like. But I have made some of the most amazing friends. I keep thinking about how much time has already gone by, and how I only have three months left. THREE MONTHS!!!! Even though I miss my friends and family back in Athens and in Auburn and I can't wait to be back at school (minus the studying and going to class), I am going to miss everyone from Disney 20x more. I hope my parents know that all of my birthday and Christmas presents from now on will consist of plane tickets to go see my friends that live around the world!
