Kyle & I spent last weekend at Rosen's Shingle Creek Resort which is right here in Orlando.
We are notoriously addicted to this beautiful resort. We stayed there last summer (recap 1, recap 2, recap 3), last year for our anniversary, for Kyle's 30th birthday in December, and again last weekend.
We love that you don't ever need to leave the resort once you check in. There's plenty to do, great food, and beds that Kyle and I named "the cloud". Nap time was prevalent.
The only bummer about our weekend was the weather. A nasty cold front was moving through. Luckily we were spared the torrential downpours that were predicted and just got cloudy skies. No pool for me. No tan either.
After check-in, we
I had a chicken salad "salad". The chicken salad had light mayo, pecans, craisins, and cilantro. I put that on a salad with balsamic dressing and lots of banana peppers.
Then it was off to "the cloud" for a well deserved nap time.
Dinner was at our "engagement restaurant" and our meal looked like a carbon copy of what we get at Cala Bella every time. I feel like that Olive Garden commercial where the guy always gets "the usual". Is there anything wrong with that?
Here's a collage of our food and silly faces:
Saturday am we were prepared for a day inside as the weather said "100%" chance of rain alllll ddddaayyyy lllloonnnnggggg.
We headed down to the breakfast buffet and were surprised to see clouds and no rain.
After we were embarrassingly stuffed (eggs, biscuits, fruit, more fruit, fruit dip) we headed out to hike the hotel's "nature trail".
That afternoon was also enjoyed a nap, sandwich lunch, massage, sauna time, and reading. I am reading Portia Di Rossi's book "Unbearable Lightness" and I highly recommend it.
Dinner on our final night was at a tapas place down the road called "Cafe Tu Tu Tango". The restaurant was packed and full of diners and energy. They have artists working on paintings and flamenco dancers. The food was sadly uninspired.

Do you have a favorite local "vacation" spot?
Love and Egyptian cotton,
Carissa & Kyle
