2 Years of Wedded Bliss

Tuesday, June 11, was our two year wedding anniversary.  And our wedding was the thing that got me started in running in the first place.  But I can't believe how quickly 2 years have flown by!  Our wedding day was magical and I wish I could re-create it again and again!


Kory came home with a bouquet of beautiful roses for me. What a way to start off the night !

For our two year anniversary, Kory chose to stay in one of the Royal Rooms at Port Orleans- Riverside since he knew I had been wanting to stay there.  And being local, we don't really need a hotel room too often.

I had never been to Port Orleans, except to eat in the restaurant so I'd never looked around.  The property is GORGEOUS!  I can see why people like to stay there and why couples get engagement/anniversary pictures taken there.  I'll be keeping it in mind for the future.

Our building was Oak Manor.

So, so pretty.  Our room was a river view so this is what we saw out of our window.

The Royal Room was cute!

The bed had a headboard that you could press a button and fireworks would go off on.  I was like a little kid and kept hitting the button over and over again.


There was a welcome letter from Tiana and a Cinderella's Carriage coat hook (that I sooo wanted to steal!)


There was a magic carpet from Aladdin on the carpet along with Genie's lamps for faucets.


There was Snow White's mirrors.  One was an actual mirror, one was a hologram picture.

Then there were pictures of the princesses.
I got dressed for dinner, then we headed to Epcot.  We saw the cutest baby ducks outside the restaurant.

We checked in to Le Cellier and then stepped outside to take a picture.

Then they called our name.  Yay for a short wait!

The menu..

The yummy bread basket...I love the pretzel bread!

For the appetizer, I got a cheese plate (of course!  I am trying to eat every cheese plate on property!) and Kory got the Cheddar Cheese Soup (I had to steal some!)

For the entrée, we both got the Mushroom Filet Mignon.  It came with mushroom risotto and this yummy sauce! So good.  We also got the Poutine, but unfortunately, we didn't like this.  Oh well.

For dessert we got the Crème Brulee.  I think it was maple flavored, but we didn't even get a menu, just asked for it so I'm not positive.  And I was so excited to dig into it, that I forgot to take a picture.  Oops! 

Then we drove back home to feed Bella and play with her before we headed back to the for the night.  (She's litter box trained and we left extra food and water for her so she was fine).

The next day we got up and headed to the pool.  On the way, we saw a skink, which I've never seen before.  So course I had to take a picture!

The only spots at the pool were in the shade, but it felt nice.  We spent a good amount of time in the water too.  Such a nice relaxing way to spend the day!

Here's to many more anniversaries to come!!


  1. Happy Anniversary! Sounds like a fabulous day!

  2. Happy Anniversary! Don't you wish you could recreate your wedding every year? We loved our wedding cake so much that we had the top layer recreated for our anniversary dinner at Citricos! You are so lucky to live so local. And yes, POR is so beautiful. It is one of my favorite resorts. Glad you had a great time. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I so wish I could recreate my wedding! I've already started talking about a 10 year vow renewal but once we have kids, who knows! We recreated our top layer last year (although they got the color wrong!) and it was so good. I was contemplating doing it again this year but the hubby said no.

  3. I'm drooling over your wedding pictures! My jaw dropped when I saw Cinderella's carriage and horses! What a dream come true! Congrats on your anniversary :)

    1. Thank you! It truly was a dream come true! I want to do it again (with the same husband of course :) )
