Summer is Here

Whoa… hello out there! And hello SUMMER! While it’s not exactly my favorite season, it is my birth season, so yeah, go summer! Since my last update…, TWO MONTHS AGO, I still have not yet found my creative outlet, have gained a lot of weight, and have purposely ignored anything that I didn’t care for or want to care for but cannot really afford to care for. Did that make any sense at all?

Anyway, I failed to mention that between April 1st and May 31st, we have taken three separate trips to Disneyland. The first one trip was with the hubby (of course), my brothers, sisters in law, niece, and nephew. It was planned in less than one week. The conversation went something like:

Me: Hey, we’re driving down to Disneyland for the weekend.
SIL: Oh, maybe we can go too.
Me: Ok! Let me know.
Bro: Let me see if (his wife) can get the weekend off. We’ll go too!

The following day, everyone was able to get the weekend off…and we booked our hotel, they bought their tickets, and off we were to Disneyland!

The second trip was a one day trip. Mike and I took a 6AM flight, spent the morning at California Adventure, ate all we that our stomachs would allow at the Food & Wine Festival, spent the afternoon at Disneyland, drove around Orange County for a little bit, then took the last flight home. Lastly, the third trip was during Memorial Day weekend. We spent that entire Sunday at California Adventure, and rode Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout three times! Luckily for us, we never waited more than one hour for the ride! We loved it so much! (TIP: Get your FastPass as soon as you get there, wait in line while the wait time is still short, go back during your designated time, watch the early showing of World of Color, get in line to the ride as soon as you leave the show and others watch the second showing (or vice-versa), and voila… guarantee three times the fun!)

Anyway, I guess I didn’t really have much substance in this post. I just needed to kill time while I uploaded my iPhone photos onto my MacBook. However, it has failed three times already. Help?

Next time, I’ll try a little more on writing about something that matters.

 

February Happened

Finally, a day off with nothing to do. Actually that’s wrong because there are plenty of things to do, but what’s an hour to myself? I deserve it after all.

I am finally getting settled in at the new workplace – two and a half months later! While I wish things were like that instead of this, or that this should be this way and not that way, I like where I’m at. The people I work with are nice and helpful, and it’s nice and liberating not being the automatic go-to person. New girl perks.

Now that February is gone – what happened in February? For our first Valentine’s Day as a married couple, Mike and I went out for some sushi at one of our usual places in Sacramento. It was nothing romantic but it works for us. The following weekend, we drove down to Orange County. We stopped by Valencia for an extra early breakfast and Stumptown coffee! We then spent the day at Disneyland, where we stuffed our faces as much as we could. We grabbed a light lunch and some drinks at Cove Bar and had an amazing dinner at Blue Bayou. The highlight of the day was hands-down watching the Main Street Electrical Parade! I love all the Disney parades, but the Electrical Parade brings all the feels and memories from childhood. Can I cry now? Haha. TIP: There are two different meal plans that will give you a preferred viewing for the parade. Check out Disneyland’s website for more information. It’s worth it if you don’t want to park yourselves for a few hours before the show.

#APDays

The following day was a beautiful, warm day so we decided to head out Laguna Beach for lunch and shenanigans. Downfall of that weekend though? Learning that the Sacramento Kings traded Boogie. I may have cried a little.

Now is probably the time to get off. I have a lot of cleaning up to do. A LOT. Happy Saturday, y’all! 🙂
