Sea World how I heart thee!

Being that I live near Orlando I’m always hearing how Disney World is the “Happiest Place on Earth.” Well, everyone has their own “Happy Place” and my personal happy place would be Sea World.

I love all the shows. I absolutely LOVE the Shamu “Believe” show and cry every single time!!! It’s so encouraging and I’m just in awe and must admit that I’m majorly jealous of the people who get to work with those amazing creatures. To me that would be an incredible job.

The Sunday after Christmas I went with my BFF Melissa for our annual Christmas trip to Sea World. I believe this is about the 4th year we’ve done it. I look forward to it each year and it’s always so fun. We usually go before Christmas but this year we went after. The Christmas cheer was still around and the decorations were still up. It was a cold day, like in the 40’s, but it was a GREAT day!

Enjoy the pictures! :)

The Polar Express ride. Don't think I've ever seen the movie in it's entirety. This ride only comes out at Christmas. Love it!!

The polar bear sleeping!

My ticket to ride the Polar Express, ha. I had to get a picture with this. This is my motto, and if you remember, even have a tattoo on my foot that says "Believe".

The Dolphin show!

What is your happy place??? :)

That looks like a lot of fun! I have never been to Disney or to Sea World, but my happy place is the beach..anywhere!!! :)

Or really, I guess you could say anywhere I am not at work! haha

Have a great day!

Oh, how fun!!! I love all the decorations there too.. What a fun thing to add into your Holiday mix!

Yep, for me though, its Disney... Its like a dream world for me - no matter how old... cant wait to take the grandbabies there & see it through their eyes!

I love Disney World, but I am a lover of all things Disney. My personal everyday happy place it Starbucks. I love coffee and sitting in the coffee house setting. I can read, surf the web, and people watch. I love it.

Thanks for sharing the pictures. I love them. So beautiful. I haven't been to Sea World in a long time. I must go again.

Awww I love Sea World!

I LOVE Sea World too! It's about 3 hrs away for me so I'm a bit jealous that you live so close :) I love all those theme parks and stuff, but my fave in TX is either going to Port Aransas every year or the San Antonio Riverwalk. It's gorgeous!

Paige said...

Love all of your photos! I love the word "Believe" too. Thanks for sharing your trip with us!

Niki said...

I love Seaworld too girl!! Wish I lived close so I could go! Looks like a great day! I used to want to be a Shamu trainer when I was growing up!

Annie said...

glad you and your friend had a great day together!! :)

Looks like so much fun! I'm jealous you live so close to Sea World! I can't tell you how bad I want to visit Sea World. I am a HUGE dolphin lover. We were just talking that when our girls are old enough, we will be heading down there - and we plan to do Discovery Cove as well! :)

My happy place is Jamaica. I absolutely love it there, and if I wasn't pregnant right now, we would probably be planning our third trip there for sometime next year. It's worth the wait though - I'm thrilled baby #2 is on her way!

Have a great day!

Megan said...

I love Sea World also!! I've never been there at Christmas, it looks magical!!

Jordan said...

How fun! I can't remember the last time I went to Sea World, it's been that long. I love Disney World so I guess that would be my happy place! Until I get a little bit older and have lots of money to travel around the world ;) LOL

Katie said...

Lauren ~ I love Sea World, too! Just don't get to go very often. I'm so glad you had a good time and a good Christmas.

Love that snuggie, girl.

I have not been to Sea World since I was about 11 or 12. I would LOVE to go back.

My happy place is anywhere there is sand and sun. Perferable a cruise ship, but, I will take whatever comes my way!

Looks like you had a wonderful Christmas! I enjoy reading your posts every day!

Have a great New Year!!

Kendra said...

Aaw, I have always wanted to go there! I'm too far away to go for the heck of it. Glad you had fun!
