Christmas in Disneyland

A few weeks ago I flew down to Orange County to visit my sister Erica. She just recently moved down to Anaheim and she is working at Disneyland! They were having a Christmas party in the Disneyland park for the employees and their families so she invited me down to go...because let's face it I'm the only one who would! (I'm always up for a little bit of travel!)

It was incredibly awesome. First of all, I got to spend some quality time with my best friend and second of all, I got go into Disneyland and California Adventure for free! It was a blast! They closed down the park early Monday night and we got to go back in for 5 hours. No lines, discounts on food, and no crowds. I repeat.. NO CROWDS! It was awesome. It was a bit cold though even by Nor Cal standards.. in the low 40s, so no water rides. :( Splash Mountain is my favorite but I just couldn't do it! The castle looks so pretty during the Holiday season. It was truly magical.

Other then going to Cali Adventure and DL we pretty much took it easy. Explored around Fullerton and ate some Pinkberry. Being a frozen yogurt connoisseur I will say that it was fantastic frozen yogurt. It's expensive though so that would stop me from eating it daily if I lived close to one. I do wish I could have some right now though. yum yum!

Can't wait to go back down to LA and visit again. Next time we will make it more adventurous and hit up the beach and some nightclubs. :)


holiday season

It's here again! I just love this time of year!

This Thanksgiving was probably the least stressful one in awhile. I did the usual rounds to different family members houses but it just went more smoothly than usual. I spent the greater part of the day at my Grandma and Grandpas house. My aunt, uncle, and cousins from Reno,NV were there too. They brought a new friend with them too.. An exchange student from Japan, Macky. It was his first Thanksgiving so it was neat to show him what it was about. I also made the pies for the occasion.. A yummy apple pie and a new recipe I tried which was a sweet potato pie (so southern!). Both were delicious and I'm not just saying that because I made them! Haha

This weekend I'm doing something pretty exciting... I'm flying down to LA to visit with my sis that just recently moved there. She works at Disneyland so we get to go into the park and have some fun. I have never been during Christmas time, so I'm ecited to see it all decked out. They close th park at 8 on Monday and have a Christmas party for the employees and their families. How sweet?!

I'm not sure what the rest of December holds for me yet but hopefully lots of fun and joy!

Oh and I'm just loving listening to Christmas music 24-7, aren't you?!
