Tuesday Travels: Ciao Italia

A little over a month ago Adam had the grand idea for a Newly Newlywed Adventure. We began our search of where the road- or friendly skies- would take us. Originally, our plan was to return to Hawaii. IMG_1426.JPG

The Big Island and Kauai were still on our Wish List, but with the recent volcano eruption (and taking a helitour over the volcano was a “must do”) we opted to save that vacation for another time.

We spend days researching. Toyed with Iceland, Africa and Australia. It wasn’t until I put my Key To The World Travel Travel Planner skills to the test and happened to find a fantastic deal to Italy, we just couldn’t pass up.

So, with three weeks until take-off the planning began! Once we decided on Italy, we were both craving Italian food. Naturally, we had to have our “planning meetings” at Antico Pizza Napoletana. (AKA: The BEST pizza in Atlanta!) IMG_0394.JPG

Unlike most of our vacations, this trip was very unplanned. Besides knowing where we were staying, we had no other set plans.  [I’ll just go ahead and put it out there…Being the planner that I am, I did a really good job with being flexible. Just ask Adam.}

July 3, 2018 our bags were packed and we said arrivederci to the USA onboard a Delta PINK RIBBON Plane. IMG_1054.JPG

We flew in style- Delta One -for our first 8 hour leg of the trip to Amsterdam. Such fun cheers-ing to vacation and our time away! Our cabin mates just happened to be The Mingos and their entourage. After a 4 hour layer over in Amsterdam, a short 1.5 hour KLM flight and two landing attempts later (the Florence runway is quite small) we arrived in Italy about noon local time on July 4th. IMG_2244.JPG

We grabbed our luggage and headed to the Rental Car Center…that’s right, you read that correctly. We decided to rent a car and drive in Italy! That was an adventure in itself!

{Travel Tip: BE CAREFUL if you decide to rent a car internationally. Even though we used Enterprise and booked the car in advance, they tried to over charge us and cut our days on the rental. Thankfully Adam had copies of the agreement stored in his E-Mail and I had printed copies with me.  Slightly stressful, but we survived and so glad we ended up having a vehicle to get around. Also, keep in mind the rental car center is made up primarily of trailers all on gravel roads. It can be a bit of a work out pulling your luggage to and from your car.}

Two bags full of clothes, two over sized wine suitcases and 4 carry on bags later the Newly Newlyweds were ready to hit the road and head to our first stop, Borgo Argenina. A truly magical Bed & Breakfast we cannot wait to tell you all about!

IMG_2246.JPG

Follow along our Italian Adventure over the next days and weeks to come. We’re so looking forward to reminiscing to our time in Italy as we share it with y’all! We can’t wait to return to the beauty of Tuscany someday.

Until next time, we hope you’re enjoying your Newly Newlywed or Nearly Newlywed moments as much as we are!

Cheers Y’all!

Tuesday Travels: Doing Disney {Tasting Around The World}

Hey there Musketeers!

Are you dreaming of Disney on this Travel Tuesday? We just returned from a quick weekend trip. I too, am wishing we were walking our way around Epcot. Sipping on seasonal cocktails and enjoying the fantastic March weather during the Flower and Garden Festival!

Come on! Take the stroll around Epcot with us! It’s not just for kids- adults can love Disney too!

We arrived at Epcot via boat from the Swan & Dolphin Hotel. Did you know you can do that? We went through the back entrace by the International Gateway. It was there we made a quick right to cross the bridge into France, where our day Tasting Around The World began!RenderedImage.jpeg

Our first stop was at Les Vins des Chefs de France for a little cocktail! We cheersed to our Day of Disney with a glass of Champagne and Adam had a French Beer similar to a Blue Moon. IMG_8012.jpeg

Also in France is Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie, where we had a yummy French Duo-  a White and Dark Chocolate Mousse Cake. SO good y’all! It just melted in your mouth. The Mousse was so creamy- clearly this was not a Whole30 Day! IMG_8020.jpeg

Did you know you could travel 1,200 miles in just three minutes? You can! At Epcot anyway! From France we made our way to Morocco where Adam had his second beverage, a Casa Beer, an original Lager from the host country.  IMG_8045.jpeg

After Morocco we made our way to Japan where Adam and I shared a Sapporno Beer from Kabuki CafeIMG_8061.jpegIMG_8059.jpeg

We passed through the American Adventure (we can have a Bud Lite anytime y’all) to Italy for another glass of Bubbly! IMG_8064.jpeg

Next, we headed to Biergarten Restaurant in Germany where Adam took in the, ehh, local fashion culture and even found himself an Epcot souvenir! IMG_8070.jpeg

IMG_8075.jpeg

China was next on our list, before we headed to Norway for a Beer with Olaf! IMG_8086.jpegIMG_8316.jpeg

I think a Margarita is calling my name! Is it for you too? Mexico was next where we had Cucumber Lime Margaritas.  A mix of Tequila Avión Blanco, Fresh Cucumber, Orange Liqueur, Lime Juice and Agave Nectar. Whew y’all! These little babies were strong! Stronger than we expected for sure! We washed down Beef Empanadas filled with Barbacoa Beef, topped with Chipotle Sauce, Crema Mexicana and Queso Fresco and served with a side of Corn Esquites with our Margaritas from Choza de MargaritaIMG_8108.jpeg

We finished our snack in Mexico and  headed North to Canada for a little beer eh! IMG_8140.jpeg

We crossed the pond for a Half & Half at the Rose & Crown Pub in England for our final beverage on our World Tour of Epcot. IMG_8152.jpeg

Well just like that we traveled thousands of miles and tasted ten new toddies in a few short hours! What’s your favorite country to visit while at Epcot? Do you have a favorite cocktail or meal you have to get while visiting? We’d love to hear about it!

Wouldn’t it be nice to be back in Orlando making our way through Epcot and the World Showcase? Who knows…with just a little Pixie Dust anything can happen! Maybe HeliHubby and I will make our return sooner than planned!

 

We hope you’re enjoying your Newly Newlywed or Nearly Newlywed Disney moments as much as we are!

Cheers!

Monday’s Menu: Yak&Yeti Dining Night

Adam and I just returned from Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. If you know me and follow along our Social Media outlets you’ve probably caught on that I LOVE Disney. This week on the Newly Newlywed Blog, we wanted to share all things DISNEY….starting with our menu today!IMG_7998.jpeg

We literally park hopped ’til we dropped on Saturday. Fourteen plus hours of Park Hopping fun.Before we ended our Disney day we had a fantastic meal (and service) at Yak&Yeti at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, a park that is quickly becoming a favorite! FullSizeRender-1.jpeg

Yak&Yeti is a favorite in the park spot of mine, especially for lunch. It is a perfect spot for a casual, great tasting meal. They are one of the few in the park restaurants that actually have a bar- which is so nice for those of us that travel alone- especially if you can’t or didn’t make reservations. At the base of Expedition Everest sits Yak & Yeti Restaurant, a table-service eatery serving delicious pan-Asian cuisine. Reservations are encouraged, but if you are unable to score them on your trip, pop by and add your name to the wait list or see if you can grab a seat or two at the bar. If you’re an Annual Pass Holder you are able to use your discount, but sadly they do not accept Tables Cards. Yak&Yeti is a Landry’s Inc Restaurant, meaning if you’re a Landry’s card holder and you don’t have reservations you can get the next open table and you can score dining points! Such a great perk to being a card holder!

{Note: You do have to have a park ticket to dine at this restaurant.}

So what was on our menu for the night? Just a few of my most favorite dishes of course! We did a wide range of sampling, since it was Adam’s first visit after all!

We started with their Dim Sum Basket, a new dish for me! It was filled with Pork pot stickers, shrimp siu mai, cha su bao and pork siu mai steamed on a banana leaf, soy lime dipping sauce. So tasty! The Pork Siu Mai was definitely my favorite part of the basket. IMG_8181.jpeg

After the Dim Sum Basket we snacked on their Ahi Tuna Nachos. This dish is MASSIVE. I often order it as my lunch and can never finish it all. It is Sushi grade Ahi, Asian slaw, crispy fried wontons, wasabi aioli, sweet soy glaze. So delicious! IMG_8261.jpeg

We ended our meal with my FAVORITE dish Yak&Yeti offers, their Chicken Tikka Masala. It is some of the best I’ve ever had and yes, Adam loved it too! It is a Boneless chicken breast dish, marinated in yogurt and freshly ground herbs cooked in a traditional Masala sauce with jasmine rice and garlic naan bread. It’s a bit spicy which is nice. The Naan was tasty, but if I am being honest, not the best we’ve ever had- it was a bit soggy. Our neighbors Neil and Kokil have spoiled us with our Naan! IMG_8255.jpeg

All and all we had a fantastic dining experience. The food was so good, the service was great (Mike the Manager visited our table multiple times) and we left stuffed! This was clearly not a Whole30 day for me, but a day at Disney and 15+ miles of walking, it was a well deserved and enjoyed meal! I am getting hungry thinking back to this amazing meal, aren’t you?

Have you tried Yak& Yeti? What’s your favorite dish? Do you have another favorite restaurant at Animal Kingdom? We’d love to hear about it and it to our list to try!

We hope your enjoying your Newly Newlywed or Nearly Newlywed {Disney Magic} moments as much as we are! Stay tuned for a Tuesday Travels Disney Edition tomorrow!

Cheers!

Throwback Thursday: Let’s go fly a plane!

Yep. I said it.

On Sunday, August 20, 2017 when Adam decided to go “practice flying” I said, “Yea. Sure I’ll go.”

I’m not sure who was more surprised by my answer, Adam or myself. He had only been asking me to fly with him AND his instructor for 6 months and never did I have any interests in dying. I mean flying with them! Much less going up alone with Adam just days after him getting his pilot’s license.

IMG_9022.JPG

What in the world was I thinking? Maybe I was just being a supportive wife or crazy! I guess I’ll never know for sure, but on that warm August morning I decided to go up, up and away with my newly winged Pilot. I’ll share how we celebrated his big accomplishment in posts to come, but figured for our first Throwback Thursday of 2018 and (hopefully) days from getting our plane, it would be fun to tell our first flight story.

IMG_9462.JPG

Isn’t that the normal thing to do? Get your pilot’s license and buy a plane? We will share all the details about Elsa later!

83E96767-399E-49CA-95AB-688FABD15D71.JPG

Adam spent weeks prepping for the exam y’all. If you know him, you know that when he has a goal, he is going to reach it and not only reach it, but do it with flying colors. He will be the best. He will do it the fastest and getting his license to fly was no exception. As thrilled as I was for him for completing his goal, it was not an easy 6 months for us. He would wake up super early. Go fly. Go to work. Stay late at work. Go night fly. Come home. Eat. Sleep. Repeat. I basically never saw the man. We had plenty of conversations about him and the “other woman” he was obsessed with for months. Plenty.

August 20th was the first day I returned home from a trip down to Orlando. (Adam shipped me off to Disney World so he could study for the exam.) As I walked in the door, he was leaving to go on his first solo flight since earning his wings. JUST LIKE THAT I said, “Ok, I’ll go too!” It was a now or never thing. If we didn’t walk out the door that very moment, there was no way I was going up anytime soon.

Next thing I know I am in the passenger seat of a little Cesnna plane watching my Pilot do his pre-flight checks and texting my bother to let him know we were about to take flight, in the event anything happened. There was no way I was telling my parents until we landed safely back on the ground.

IMG_9454.jpeg

In no time we were taking off!

IMG_9459.jpeg

Needless to say my stomach was in knots. I said about one hundred Hail Mary’s and had white knuckles during take off. (Oh, lets be honest. I had white knuckles during the entire flight and landing!)

While I was never fully comfortable during the flight thanks to my nerves, it was actually fun. Seeing the city from above is pretty amazing. We flew around North Atlanta, over Stone Mountain and Lake Lanier for about an hour. Baby steps y’all, baby steps.

IMG_9461.jpeg

I guess I should let you know Adam did a fantastic job flying! He was such a gentleman constantly checking on me, telling me what each of the knobs on the panel and exactly what their functions were. We even chatted about me, yes ME, taking a few classes just so I can learn the basics and more importantly learn how to land in the event of an emergency. We both think it will help my nerves and allow me to calm down and actually enjoy flying in our little bird.

I am still not thrilled with the idea of Adam flying and us traveling in a tiny little plane, but I am warming up to it. Adam got me my own fancy airplane headphones and the cutest miniature suitcase for weekend trips in Elsa for Christmas. It is the cutest thing ever y’all! (Watch my Instagram for a picture! You’ll love the suitcase, trust me!)

Just from writing this Throwback post, I am already getting butterflies thinking about going up again. After 4+ months of being in service, our little plane, Elsa, should be finished next week! Looks like we will soon be flying the friendly skies together and 2018 will be full of adventures!

We hope you’re enjoying your Newly Newlywed or Nearly Newlywed (throwback) moments as much as we are!

Cheers!

Falalala Fett’s Final Countdown to Christmas

Day Three is for Thankful.

It’s so easy to get carried away in the hustle and bustle of the holiday season and not take time to truly enjoy all it offers.

  1. Did I get enough stocking stuffers?
  2. Did I get gifts for everyone?
  3. Do I have enough hostess gifts for all of our parties?
  4. Did we get everything from the grocery?

The list goes on and I am sure you can relate.

With all that the holiday brings, sometimes we may find our self so wrapped up “checking off our lists” that we don’t take the time to just enjoy the season and be thankful for the little things.

If I have said it once, I have said it one hundred times during our FaLaLaLa Fett Countdown to Christmas….I love Christmas. I thought with creating this countdown it would help me narrow down my favorites, but it has only made the decision more difficult. I’ve realized I do, truly love everything about the Christmas season. While we may not take the time to soak in the season and realize what all we have to be thankful, there is a small simple daily act that helps to remind both Adam and I how thankful we are this time of the year.

Snail Mail. Yep.

RenderedImage-7.jpeg

You know that box that sits outside of your house with your numerical address on it? The one that probably has a little red flag on its right side? Do you even know what that is anymore?

If you know me in real life you probably know how much I love Snail Mail. I get excited about going to the post office (how many people say that these days) picking out new stamps and sending mail. Ok yes, I love to get it too.

{Adam gets a kick out of me and how upset I was when our mail route changed. Instead of the mail arriving right at 4:30pm our mail carrier comes by…oh whenever he feels like it.}

All that being said it takes me to one of my favorite things about Christmas and something to truly be thankful for….Christmas Cards.

RenderedImage-1.jpeg

Y’all I love them!

I get even more excited to check the mail during the month of December than I do every other day of the year. I anxiously await the arrival of Christmas Cards! Who’s will be the first? Will we get new ones this year? I can hardly stand the wait for the mail to arrive!

I love seeing what all of our friends and family are up to, how much my nanny kids have grown and watching our Pier 1 Imports Christmas Card display grow. It is a daily reminder of just how blessed Adam and I are to have each and everyone of you in our lives and how thankful we are to know we may have made a small impact on your family’s lives.

RenderedImage.jpeg

Don’t worry if your card doesn’t arrive by Christmas. I get equally as excited to get Happy New Year or Valentine’s Day Cards too!

Thank you for reminding us what is truly important during this hectic holiday season. Thank you for taking the time to think of us when you’re mailing out your holiday cards. Thank you for making the Christmas Season special and for bringing a little joy into our daily lives. You may not realize how much it means when you put that little stamp on the top right of your envelope and drop your card in the mail.

Day Two is for Time. 

Wouldn’t it be nice to add more time to your day?

While that may not be a possibility, time is something that is easily overlooked during the holiday season. Samson has recently gotten into the habit of waking up around 6am to go outside. You all know he comes right back inside and gets under the blankets too! The arctic weather we’ve been experiencing lately in Atlanta is not the ideal situation to start your day!

RenderedImage-6.jpeg

Getting up at 6am and trucking outside to our frozen tundra might not be at the top of my list, but it does welcome yet another favorite Christmas memory for our FaLaLaLa Fett Christmas Countdown.

(ok I might be exaggerating a little, but this southern gal can not handle these 17* days)

RenderedImage-3.jpeg

It may sound silly to some, but I love early mornings when the Christmas Tree is up. There is just something about coming downstairs to be greeted by the lit trees and garland around the mantle when it’s still dark outside. I love sitting in my comfy chair with a cup of coffee or tea having little time to myself to begin my day.

RenderedImage-2.jpeg

I may not appreciate the early morning wake up call by Samson or enjoy the brisk morning walks, but it does allow me to take in every moment of the season. Enjoy the little things and appreciate the time we have.

Day One is for One Day I’ll Never Forget.

“Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh, who all knows about this?”

“So…is that a yes?”

IMG_0500.jpg

Hahaha! The dialogue between Adam and I when he proposed never gets old. Poor thing he went to so much trouble planning the perfect surprise Christmas Proposal to include everything I could have wanted and I just had to make it extremely difficult for him!

I won’t go into all the details here because we’ve shared the story of our proposal before, but I couldn’t leave THIS day out from our FaLaLaLa Fett Christmas Countdown. Christmas Eve has always been a favorite day of mine- from cooking with mom to wrapping last minute gifts, it is full of family traditions and wonderful memories.

One family tradition, so to say, is one poor Adam only found out about a few weeks before we got engaged. (About the time he bought my ring) Both my grandparents and my parents got engaged on Christmas Eve and it was something I wanted too, when I found my person. Needless to say I was not expecting the proposal to come when it did. Adam and I had chatted about marriage a few times, we had only been dating about a year and since he was buying a house he ensured me it would not be happening in 2013. Little did I know what he had up his sleeve….

A Christmas Eve proposal it was! It was thoughtful, creative and perfect. Besides wanting  a Christmas Eve proposal I also wanted my friends and family to share the occasion with us and of course he had to ask my Dad before asking me. All of which he made happen, even though it was not the cliche “hide a ring in a box under the tree” and my friends and family were not present, he had the whole thing videoed so all could see.

Thankfully he did! Besides me saying “Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh, who knows about this?” There is not much more from it I remember. Take a peek at our other post- hopefully you’ve love our story as much as we do! The perfect story to share for Day One of our FaLaLaLa Countdown.

Here we are…our FaLaLaLa Fett Countdown has come to a end. It’s been so fun sharing and reliving a few of our favorite Christmas memories with y’all. We’d love to hear what traditions your family has or your favorite Christmas memory.

From our little family to yours, we hope y’all have the most wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year! Thank you for sharing these moments with us!

We hope you’re enjoying your Newly Newlywed or Nearly Newlywed moments as much as we are!

Cheers!

Throwback Thursday: Charleston Overnight

Vacations come and go. As fun as it is to go, see and do, it is always nice to come home and sleep in your own bed. Now, we throwback. Reminisce on our travels, sort through pictures and start planning our next get-a-way.

July was a full month of traveling for your favorite Newly Newlyweds. Together we conquered Myrtle Beach, Orlando, New York and a quick overnight stay in Charleston, South Carolina. One of our favorite cities y’all!

While we were only there for a night, Adam and I made sure to make the most of our time. Charleston is less than a 5 hour drive from Atlanta and got there just in time for HAPPY HOUR!

Charleston 2016
Watch out Charleston, here WE come! 

We checked into our hotel, the beautiful Belmond Charleston Place. It is stunning y’all! Right off of Market Street – within walking distance to all of our favorite spots! {Not to mention it is attached to a shopping mall…poor Adam.}

After checking into the hotel we were off to hit HAPPY HOUR! First Stop? Amen Street Fish & Rawbar.  This was a favorite spot of ours from our last trip to Charleston and they have a fantastic HAPPY HOUR Menu!

Charleston 2016- Amen St
Fresh Oysters at Amen Street’s Happy Hour

From Amen Street we popped over to High Cotton Charleston– a new spot for us. They have a great bar/lounge area with live music. They don’t have a Happy Hour Menu. We stopped in for a cocktail and their Truffle Popcorn- OMG y’all….I could eat it everyday!

From Cocktails and Popcorn at High Cotton we moved to Poogan’s Smokehouse. New to the Charleston Food Scene and for those of you that love their sister restaurant, Poogan’s Porch, you’re sure to love this spot too!

Southern Sangria at Poogan’s Smokehouse

We shared their “Southern Sangria” and snacked on their Pimiento Cheese Fritters with Tomato Jam…oh y’all. They are a MUST when you visit..melt in your mouth, ooey goodness. Craving them now! 

Charleston 2016 Poogans 2.jpg
 Pimento Cheese Fritters at Poogan’s Smokehouse- so delicious!  

Next on our list to see was 5 Church Street. We are not quite sure on the story of the restaurant, but being that Charleston is known as the “City of Churches” we would not be surprised if this newer spot was once a church.

The ambiance was unlike any other, however the service and variety offered was subpar. We sipped on an {overpriced} cocktail and hopped to our final spot of the night.

Charleston 2016 - 5 Church Street 2.jpg
Farmhouse Lemonade and Rosemary Gin Fizz

The Watch sits on the top of The Restoration Hotel in Charleston. It has some of the best views of the city and the BEST service we experienced during our stay.

Charleston 2016- The Watch 1.jpg
Hugo’s Punch at The Watch

We had one last cocktail, shared their  Lobster Mac & Cheese and Hushpuppies with house pimento cheese & pepper jelly. Oh y’all. Heaven on a plate. The Mac & Cheese had just the right amount of gooey cheese, pasta and fresh lobster pieces. We will definitely be back!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Are you stuffed? We are just thinking about our night in Charleston and can’t wait to plan our next visit! Throwbacks are so much fun thinking about how much enjoyed out short time in Charleston! We packed our bags, hopped in the car and drove onto Myrtle Beach where we met up with our friends David and Ann Marie. Stay tuned to our Tuesday Travels and see what we got into there!

Do you have a favorite spot in Charleston or Myrtle Beach? Share them with us! We’d love to give them a try on our next visit!

Hope you’re enjoying your Newly Newlywed or Nearly Newlywed moments as much as we are!

Cheers!

Throwback Thursday: Not even newlyweds take on New York

Are we just dating? Are we “together”? Did Adam or I know each other’s middle names, favorite colors or board games as a child? All questions we might not of known the answers to when we took our first BIG trip together.

As Adam and I prepare to take-off on our next adventure to the BIG APPLE I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than a Throwback Thursday post about our first trip together.

We began dating in 2012… do you know our story? We were set up on a blind date by a coworker of Adam’s and the Mother of the family I was nannying for at the time. Long story short-ish….Adrienne spent months trying to set us up. We finally gave in and I, yes you read that correctly, I (Holly) got the nerve to call him on fall football Saturday afternoon. {After a TCU victory of course!}

We spent a couple of weeks texting regularly, chatting daily and agreed to not look each other up on Social Media or send photos of one another.  If/when we decided to meet it would truly be a “blind date.” We tackled all the touchy subjects before our first date. Yes…kids, religion, politics…we covered it all.

Two weeks after our first date was Christmas and my birthday…poor Adam.

As a {one time only} joint gift he surprised me with a trip to NYC and so comes our Throwback Thursday post!

We flew into LGA on a brisk January 4th afternoon.

NYC 1

As this was Adam’s first time to the Big Apple I played the part of tour guide. Our hotel was just a few blocks from Times Square. Shortly after landing and settling into out hotel we put on our walking shoes and started acting like tourists! We saw the lights of Times Square, the Toys R Us, Hershey and Lego Store. Strolled by Radio City Music Hall, the Rockefeller Ice Rink and Christmas Tree, where we took our first photo together after Adam got conned into buying a FDNY Beanie from a street vendor. {That’s a story for another post.}

NYC 2

That night Adam took me to see The Newsies on Broadway…it was fantastic! His first Broadway show was a success! {Little did he know how much I love the theater and how many times he would be going to the Fox Theatre from there on out.} If you get a chance to see it live, do it! If not, watch the movie!

NYC 6

Our second day in the city was spent roaming around like locals. Trying hole-in-the-wall restaurants, getting off the train on random spots, and doing a little shopping.

NYC 5

That night we grabbed some Starbucks and went on a Horse-and-Carriage ride through Central Park. Not to get all mushy, but it was oh-so romantic.

NYC 3.jpg

Our final day in the city was spent strolling through Central Park where I snapped one of my favorite photos of us. Until today, Adam didn’t know this photo existed. New York may not be known as “The City of Love,” but it will always be that to me. A magical city where my heart made room for Adam and a true love began to develop…oh lordy! Who am I being all sappy?

NYC 4

We can hardly wait for our next BIG CITY adventure! Are you a native New Yorker or just love to visit? We’d love to know your favorite, non-touristy spots as we get ready to embark on our trip.

Stay tuned for trip details!

We hope you are enjoying your Newly Newlywed or Nearly Newlywed moments as much as we are!

Cheers!
