You are Jasmine. You are loyal and would visit the ends of the earth for what you believe. You would never let obstacles stand in the way of true love.

Having just been to Disney World with Rob’s family for a short vacation I had fun taking this quiz.

My nieces; ages 7, 5, and 2 1/2 had a great time at Epcot and the Magic Kingdom. The oldest 2 were ready to do all the fun rides. But we all definitely had to find the Princess so they could get their autographs and photos with them. We also had 2 meals with characters walking around the restaurant. They were thrilled! I had fun with my nieces at Disney. I also had fund at Disney feeling like a kid again, who gets sore feet faster and starts to walk slower as the day goes on. But a kid none the less.

Bridal Shower

Anita' shower cakeI just spent a long weekend in Northern VA and had a great time! I was up there for my younger sister’s, Anita, bridal shower! We all had a great time – it was an Island party theme. She’s getting married in Puerto Rico so that my 91 year old grandmother can attend.

Anyway, she tried on her dress and she’s going to be so beautiful – a very beautiful bride! I’m so excited I can’t wait! Oh, and I also got to see my dad who lives in PA. That was a nice treat.

Anyway, check out the AWESOME cake my older sister made for the shower! She’s so talented. Her and my aunt are making the wedding cake. She made the faces of Anita and her fiancee, Will, palm tree and clothing out of Fondant. The sand is brown sugar. I loved it!

So now I’m going to tag:

Jenny b/c she wants to blog more but doesn’t get around to it. Maybe she’ll do this.
Becky just because.

Jet setter Quiz

Not crazy about the Worldly title, but I have to agree with the quiz results. I love to travel. I’ve been fortunate to have visited many countries and yet there are more I have yet to visit!

My mom worked for Eastern Airlines (remember them?) until I was 18. We traveled a lot because of it. Definitely went to Puerto Rico about 5 times a year. My parents took advantage of being able to travel stand-by to show us the world. And so my sisters and I all love to travel. We’ll go just about anywhere.

Last year, not so much travel. This year, too much travel.
And yes, I’ll be traveling again soon. I need to rest up for this next trip.


You Are Very Worldly


You’re an international jet setter – or pretty darn close.
And while you may feel like you have many more places to visit…
Most people live their whole lives without seeing what you’ve seen.
In fact, you’re probably going to be traveling again soon. So Bon Voyage!
