Make sure you check out PART ONE of our Universal vacation to catch up!
We decided on taking an adults only trip to Universal Studios Orlando. We planned this vacation on New Years Day 2018, so it has been a LONG year of waiting for it to finally arrive. Our main focus was Halloween Horror Nights, which is the largest Halloween event in the U.S. but obviously wanted to go to the parks too. My parents had never been to Orlando – it was fun seeing everything through their eyes! We had such a fun time but I was definitely ready to get home to my kids after six days!!
It might not come as a shock to most of you but we are a Harry Potter loving family. I don’t mean we like to watch the movies once a year, I mean we might possibly have a large shrine in our basement, tattoos on our body and an obsessive amount of vacations to the Wizarding World under our belt. Harry Potter is life over here. I get tagged in just about any Harry Potter related post on Facebook by my friends. It’s not a secret to most that we are OBSESSED.
I put together the ultimate gift guide for the Harry Potter lovers in your life. Christmas is quickly approaching and a lot of these shops are small. This can mean it will take longer to receive the products because they are hand-made. So its a good idea to get a jump start on your shopping so you will have everything in time for the holidays.

Cody and I were dating for almost four years at this point. We moved from my apartment into a 3-bedroom townhome and then into our current house during those four years. We were basically doing what married couples do but he was still only my boyfriend. Life was going great and I knew he was the one I wanted to marry. I was just hoping that ring would be coming soon! 🙂
Well after an exhausting night at the E.R., we got back to our resort around 2:00 AM. I couldn’t sleep at all. I felt so bad for Kasey and thought our last two days at the parks were going to be horrible. No fast rides and no water… our vacation literally only involved those two things. Luckily, I was wrong.
