I might be broke and throwing myself into my work at a speed beyond 200%, but this is never going to change. It's time to welcome the next month with open arms and fun plans. And the first of these plans is occurring in less than 20 days.
If you can't tell by the above photo, I'm on my way (again) to the happiest place on earth (my Mom thought I was going to say San Francisco, haha, actually pretty much everyone I know did come to think of it. They also guessed New York. Close, but no cigar) which is....
I cannot wait! I'm going with my old college roommates (how freaky does that phrase sound?) and it's going to be amazing. Rides all day (Splash Mountain is re-opening from the winter months), mint juleps and churros, firework show, those fat, delicious, half-baked cookie dough cookies from Main Street, seeing the Disney princesses (Cinderella, yay!)...this list really never ends.
I'm not a Disney fanatic by any means, nor do I jam on amusement parks in general but damn do I love Disneyland. Most of this has to do with the fact that I grew up on Disney and unlike crappy amusement parks, their rides work and aren't run by toothless carny dudes in wifebeaters.
Also, this next part is going to sound bad, but I love the overpriced everything they offer. There is seldom a moment in an adult life or otherwise that you can justify spending over six bucks on a slice of pizza or $12 on a mug with Ariel's face on it. With Disneyland, the justification comes in:
a) Dude, I haven't been here since 2009. I don't come here often so it's worth it.
b) Awww! I'm making a memory with my family and/or friends! so it's worth it.
c) I'm being forced into being an adult and I didn't sign up for it. JUST LET ME ENJOY THE STUFFED SIMBA AND RIDING SPACE MOUNTAIN 12 TIMES IN A ROW BEFORE I HAVE TO DISCUSS 401K OPTIONS. OH DEAR GOD WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN so it's worth it.
d) I just like spending money. Even when I don't have it. This might be classified as a problem later on in life for me. But for now, let me bask in young twenty-something ignorance...so it's worth it.
All of the above in one form or another apply to me.
This blog speaks from experience.
I would also like to see Rapunzel, if she's around. I watched Tangled a few weeks ago and enjoyed it much more than I thought I would. She's adorable.
And Flynn Rider...dayum son. Prince Eric, you may have a competitor in the Hot Disney Dude Showdown.
2 days later, I have a date with the Roxy Theatre to see my ultimate icon...

There will be pictures, I promise you. Me and one of my closest girlfriends are going to see her burlesque show. I cannot even tell you how excited I am. It sounds a little like this: fergjerghergulrnfutkewyjtx
Basically, anytime I think my day sucks (which is a really rare occurrence these days), I think of these good moments coming up and life is so incredible, it's practically shooting ice cream out of rainbows at me.
Here is a quick photo of me (my hair dominates the photo) with my newfound love from Perricone Farms. Strawberry Lemonade. It's delicious, comes in a fat little pouch, you can get them from most Bristol Farms and Albertsons locations, and only a dollar a pouch. Go get one now, your summer will rock with them!
Love to you all,
