Animal Kingdom Day Three & Five

We decided long before we left that Animal Kingdom would probably be Drake’s favorite park, and thus decided to allocate two days for it so we could take everything in and not feel rushed. Animal Kingdom is my favorite park as well and I love that I get to share my love of animals with [...]


Scallops with Bacon Cream Sauce

Mr. Chocolate and I recently celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary. In honor of that I decided to try to make a special dinner and chose this Scallop and Fettuccine dish with a bacon cream sauce.
