Bankrupt again?! Day Three - Shopping till we droppin at the Mall and Maggianos

Up early again - 6:30am. We had another lovely breakfast on the balcony, Toasted Bagels with Peter Pan Peanut Butter, Cereal (Cinammon Toast Crunch mmm) and fresh fruit. Once we had chivvied George up a million times to get ready, we finally headed off to the Outlet Mall at International Drive.
The kids especially wanted to have Five Guys for lunch and they have one there in the Food court so all good. The Mall was pretty empty when we arrived at ten, me and Bethany headed straight for Victorias secret, not that I would wear the underwear, as it is not Bridget Jones enough for me, but I do like the body sprays!



They were four for $26 not bad! We didnt feel like anything was a massive bargain this time, so were a little restrained but did get Calvin Klein underwear for the boys, Timberland boots for Terry, a few bits in Bath and Body works and Bethany bought stuff in Forever 21. Shes like a model and can literally wear anything.







Harry was bit disappointed as he had all his christmas money with him, and had wanted to buy clothes and trainers but just didnt find anything, he soon cheered uo though when we mentioned Burgers. . We met in the food court, ready for our much anticipated Five Guys only to find it was CLOSED for refurbishment! NOoooooooo!

We seem to be having very bad luck when it comes to food. Kids were gutted. We remembered that we had seen one near Walmart on Sand Lake road yesterday so quickly hopped in Dora the Explorer and headed off down International Drive. Hallelujah there was indeed a Five Guys at Walmart and it was OPEN - YAY! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻


George has been telling about this place for ages, it is apparently the mecca of burgers. Well lets see... I need some decent food I am wasting away! In we go, and I ordered cheeseburger with mushrooms, onions, fries, and a strawberry milkshake. For five of us was $55, eeeek. Not Maccy D's prices here!
Was it worth it? YES. YES! YES! Finally some proper calories! I did promise everyone I would get fat in Florida.


It was amazing.



Our tummies nice and full we headed back to the Marriott, and had a swim, I got my lovely white legs out again. In case you think I might be exaggerating here they are (put your sunglasses on NOW)

The kids floated around on their new tyre floaty things. Guess who carried those uo to the 5th floor afterwards? Me and Terry have new names - 'Shrek' and 'Donkey'



Bethany later announced that 'Being a mermaid in the pool really made her legs hurt'

And so, on to tonights dinner. We had a reservation at Maggianos Italian, at Pointe Orlando on i-drive. Trip advisor gave it glowing reviews and I was in need of a good dinner so we had high hopes.

We arrived, went inside and (drum roll please)... Got our table immediately! Yay! A BOOTH too - I do love a booth 😍 We ordered some wine, some water, and a variety of dishes, from Linguine del Mare for Harry, I had D-Rigatoni (chicken, mushrooms, rigatoni and marsala cream sauce) Filet Mignon (for Bethany now that she is a meat eater) Beef medallions for Terry, and Spaghetti and meat sauce for George. While we waited we had some lovely warm sourdough bread and dipping oil. It was delicious. Then the main courses came and WOW. This is what we have been waiting for! The food was sublime. Tasty, seasoned well, and major carb overload with fresh parmesan on top, mmmmm. I was in heaven.






Happy faces all round. Desserts were fabulous too, mini cheesecake, tiramisu, brownie, apple crostada and an enormous Matilda style chocolate cake that got the better of George.


With our tummies nicely full, we headed home, for a decaff tea and an early night. Step count today - 11,814. Calories - way too many but so worth it.

Tomorrow we have a free morning and then Hollywood Studios in the afternoon and evening.
