Disney and Honey Boo Boo and Seagulls....OH MY!

Wednesday was one of the BEST DAYS EVER!

And the reason is because I got to spend all day with Jessica from Lovely Little Things!!

Y'all she is seriously one of the sweetest, most fun, and down to earth girls I've had the pleasure of knowing.  And we had so much fun on our Disney Blate (blogger date!).

We started the day at Hollywood Studios and rode a few rides, watched some shows, and even learned to draw Goofy! We had a funny moment during the drawing class when the animation artist asked the class if we liked to vote and Jessica responded with, "Well yeah we're American."  Hilarious.



After Hollywood Studios we headed to Epcot.  Jessica is from Florida too but would you believe the only Disney park she's ever really been to is the Magic Kingdom.  So I was so excited to show her the "adult" side of Disney, but taking her to Epcot.  We didn't ride too many rides in Epcot but we did a lot of walking, talking, eating, drinking, and character meeting! :)






It was at Epcot that we had two moments that will go down in our friendships history as two of the greatest moments ever.

The first occured when we were walking from America into Italy.  We had just purchased two alcoholic beverages.  And were heading to a good spot to take a photo (obviously).  When all of a sudden, Jessica grabs my arm in a death grip and yells,

"THERE'S HONEY BOO BOO!"

I said "WHAT?! Where?"

And sure enough, there she was, with Momma, Sugar Bear, Pumpkin, and Uncle Poodle.  (And a really big guy who was their bodyguard.)  Y'all this is one of my very first celebrity sightings EVER.

After I got over the fact that I was NOT going to get fired for stalking a puedo-celebrity around Epcot, Jessica and I followed them into one of the restaurants, where she quickly asked if we could take a picture with them.  The answer was no (because Disney said they couldn't.) but that didn't stop them from handing her an autographed picture of the whole family.  We then sat and took creeper pictures of them from afar.  It was epic!





The second moment occurred when we were fixin to eat dinner.  We had settled on Mexican and were going to share.  Now I have to preface this by saying that there were hundreds of seagulls flying around the World Showcase Lagoon that day.  All of whom were just waiting to launch on some poor unsuspecting food carrying person.  And guess who they chose to attack?  That's right, ME.  I was carrying the food to our table when all of sudden I felt pressure on the tray, I heard Jessica squeal, and I dropped said tray in front of everyone else trying to enjoy their meal.   It was embarrassing and hilarious all at the same time.  I really wish Jessica could have snapped a picture or taken a video because I really think we would have won $10,000 on America's Funniest Home Videos.



We did some pretty fun stuff, but y'all you wouldn't believe how much we TALKED!  From the minute we said hello to the minute I was driving her back to her car we talked and talked and talked.  It was insane.  And honestly not surprising at all.

I am so glad we finally got to meet her in person.  She is def good peeps y'all! :)

This sounds like the most hilarious Blate ever. I don't watch Honey Boo Boo, but seeing her in person would still be pretty awesome! I wonder if y'all will creepily pop up in the background of any of their shots on the show...?
