If you guys follow me on Instagram then you may have already seen my post from yesterday. It’s official, for the first time in THREE YEARS I am no longer a Disney Annual Passholder. It’s a sad day but at the same time I’m so grateful for these past three years! I grew up at Disney (Disney World specifically). Some of my favorite childhood memories include my mom, sister and I at Disney World!
And even though I’ve been a huge Disney fan since I was a young child, it wasn’t until my adulthood that I truly fell in love with Disney. The Disney Parks were always a blast when I visited them as a kid but as an adult, it was a whole new experience!
Thanks Disney for making my adulthood so magical!
Is it just me or is getting mail the best feeling in the world?! Packages, letters, catalogs, heck even junk mail, I love it all! I love getting mail so much even though I’m usually the one sending it (sometimes it’s better to give than to receive!) On the rare occasion that a friend (or anyone) does send me a letter or package, it definitely becomes the highlight of that day!
If you’ve been following this blog for awhile then you already know how much I love mystery surprises! (It’s been a hot minute since my last Blind Box & Bag Roundup post!). You might also know about my love of all things kawaii and all things planner related. (Seriously, I don’t know what I’d do without my planner especially since I recently started a new job!).
So when I found out there was a subscription service that combined my three loves: mail, planning and kawaii things, I was more than thrilled and KNEW I had to check it out!
I was doing laundry this past weekend and I suddenly realized that a good 65% of my wardrobe consists of Disney clothing. Seriously, I could go an entire month without doing laundry and I’d still be able to wear a new Disney shirt each day. I know I love Disney and all but I never noticed that I acquired SO much Disney clothing over the past few years.
In my defense, I’m not the biggest fashionista. Give me a pair of jeans and a t-shrit and I’ll be just fine. I remember when I was younger and all of my friends at school would talk about how they couldn’t wait for the red carpet portion of the Oscars, or Emmys, or etc. and I’d just be geeking out about the awards themselves! In fact, I loathe the rep carpet portion of awards shows. Who cares what people are wearing, I want to see how wins the awards.
I guess I’m weird in that sense.
Happy National Waffle Day! Yup, according to my planner today, August 24, is National Waffle Day. Is it just me or does it seem like every day is National ‘something’ day? Seriously, yesterday was National Sponge Cake Day and the day before was National Tooth Fairy Day. National Tooth Fairy Day?!!
Now I love a good holiday as much as the next person. (In fact, I’m “that person” who starts decorating for Christmas the day after Halloween. No shade to Thanksgiving). But even I can admit that there are way to many random celebratory “days” nowadays. Ah, who am I kidding, the more there is to celebrate, the better!
Bring on all the weird holidays!
(Side note: Since today IS National Waffle Day, make sure to check out THIS POST featuring those delicious Cars themed waffles from Flo’s V8 Café in Disney California Adventure pictured above).
I’m back! I had such a blast at Disney World and on my Disney Cruise but now, sadly, it’s back to reality. This was such a bittersweet trip because unfortunately, this was my last Disney trip for awhile. As most of you know, I’ve been an annual passholder at Disney for three years now (since 2015). And because of that, I was able to visit the Disney Parks quite often.
In fact, since 2015 I’ve visited a combination of Disneyland, Disney World and Disneyland Paris 20+ times. And I went on two Disney cruises in that timeframe as well! (That’s a LOT of Disney!). It’s hard to put into words but Disney is truly MY happy place. I don’t mind when people say things like “Disney is for kids”, or “Disney is a tourist trap” or “why waste money on Disney when you can visit to xyz!”. At the end of the day, it’s MY choice and I’ll always chose Disney.
But, there’s always a sliver lining. The reason I’m taking an extended Disney break (and not renewing my annual pass when it expires in October) is because I’m saving for a trip to Tokyo Disneyland! (Actually, I really want to spend a month in Asia and hit Tokyo Disneyland, Shanghai Disneyland and Honk Kong Disneyland all within one trip!).
A little ambitious, I know!
