Ice Ice Baby

I've been longing to go to ICE since moving to Florida a few years ago.
Saturday evening we made the trip inland to check out this holiday favorite.
We had an amazing time...the temperature inside the exhibit was a crisp 9 degrees (I soaked in as much as I could!).



After getting our fill of winter, we warmed up over dinner at a wonderful Mediterranean restaurant at the Gaylord Palms. The hotel was decked out in Christmas decor and tons of people were bustling around drinking hot cocoa and listening to performers sing Christmas songs. It was the perfect way to start the Christmas season.

What are you doing to get into the Christmas spirit?

That looks beautiful and so very festive! I love all of the photos. The tree is absolutely beautiful. It sounds like you and your husband had a great night!

Some things that get me in the spirit are: driving around and looking at Christmas lights and going to Longwood Gardens.
