a very disney rain.

I had a season pass to Disneyland for the past three years so I went a lot. There's something about the magic, the happiness, the children running around all hopped up on sugar, and Mickey Mouse that excites/awakens the inner 7-year-old-chubby-girl who still lives on in my heart. For me, Disney is a place of magic and a place where dreams come true. It's a place that inspires me and makes me strive for better in what I create and produce.
I want to bring joy to kids and to future generations. I want to make them believe in the greatness in themselves.

I'm so lucky to have a sister who loves Disneyland as much as I do but we do the parks differently than most people. We don't stress about the rides (we ride maybe three or four at the most) and we spend the rest of the day people-watching, eating, shopping, and reveling in excitement. For my sister's birthday, she and I took work off to spend the day at Disneyland. 
Lucky for us, it was expected to rain on Monday. Yes, we now consider that lucky because we were one of the few people who went prepared. Rain boots, huge umbrella, nylon bags, sweaters, coats, thermals, scarves, and ear muffs were all taken with us. 
Like my Disney bling?

First up was California Adventure and the park was empty y'all. We got through the entire park in one hour and we got to make beautiful pictures.

We got to ride every single popular ride with a maximum 10 minute wait. We were super excited for the Toy Story Mania ride and the lack of an hour wait.

Little Mermaid is magical.

Up next was Disneyland.

Are you ready?

What a beauty of a park. 
God was kind to us that day. He gave us a few hours of sunshine so we ran to take a picture in front of the castle.

There was a cool Lunar New Year display at Disneyland.
Notice how the animal characters are all Disney animals? 

I'm the year of the Dragon so I am a dragon! ROAR!

Sister wanted to take a fun picture too so she became Godzilla.

Sister and I spend most of our Disneyland trips shopping and every time we go I fall in love with these candy boxes..
Which do you most relate to? I have a hard time picking. I don't like any of the candies inside the box so I never buy them but I think product design is cute.

It is now Friday and I cannot wait for the weekend!

Hope you have a fantastic weekend! I have meetings planned so I'll be working most of the weekend but I'm going to try throw in some spurts of shopping, baking, and some time for fellowship. 

Happy Friday!
