I Heart Mickey. And Marshmallows.

...annnd we're back!

Disneyland was insane. The good kind of insane, not the straitjacket kind. I laughed. I cried. I ate chocolate and caramel covered marshmallows on a stick. This park is completely synonymous with "my happy place." Sure, tropical destinations are cool too, but Mickey > beach (most days at least). Here's the recap. Mostly in pictures because I'm lazy cool like that.

Thursday: Worked. Drove for hours. Watched live Royal Wedding coverage when we got to our hotel. We were exhausted, but I'm into fairy tales. ;)

Friday: The big 2-5. Opened the gift my sister sent with me. Had a blast at Disneyland and California Adventure. Wore a "Happy Birthday" button and felt special.

Sunglasses with a bow on the side. Cutest ever. Thanks sis!

Birthday OOTD

Oh hey Walt.

"California, California...Here we cooomme"

Saturday: More Disneyland magic. Wore a "Happy Anniversary" button and felt special again. Ate the best tacos in Downtown Disney. Continued my love/hate relationship with Hollywood Tower of Terror. Bought a Jack Skellington caramel apple.

Went from "happy to see this building" to...

"holy crap. Get me out of here!"

Bye Disneyland. =(

Sunday/Monday: Bask in the sadness that comes from leaving Mickey behind. Celebrate two years of marriage with Thrifty ice cream. It's what we do.


Pistachio and Chocolate Malted Crunch. Love.

Where is your happy place?


  1. Hi Vanessa!! Looks like you had a blast! How can you not have a good time at Disneyland! The weather was perfect down here!! So many fun things to do and yummy things to eat! Glad you had a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!
    And Happy Anniversary! 2 years!! Awesome! My husband and I just got married in October! Any good marriage advice?
    Random question, where are you from?

  2. Thanks Joanna! Maybe I'll do a "Marriage Advice from a Newbie" post soon. I definitely don't know everything, but there are little tidbits of info I've picked up. =)

  3. What a wonderful trip! I haven't been to Disney as an adult but I'm absolutely dying to go!!

  4. It looks like you had an awesome trip!! I love your outfit in that second picture :-) Great boots!

    My happy place is New York, or the camp where I grew up.

  5. I cannot wait to go to Disney again. I honestly think it's better than the beach for a vacation too. So much fun!!! Looks like you had a great time.

  6. @Vanessa: Do it! Mickey is waiting. =)

    @Jolene: Thanks. They're Forever 21 boots I picked up for about $22. I don't expect them to last much longer, but I guess that's what I get for buying cheap shoes! And I'd love to visit NY one of these days! =)

    @Tina: I did! One of my dreams is to go to Disney World -- we're already planning our trip, and that's about three years away! =)
