When you wish upon a star...

I don't love when my blog is just "here's what we did and it was awesome" posts but February was good to us and it just so happened that we had two awesome weekend get-a-ways in a row! We got to go to Disneyland for President's Day weekend and we just got back today from Phoenix where me met up with my family for the weekend!

So since I have a need to document, the next two posts will be "here's what we did and it was awesome" posts...


First off, a huge shout out and thank you to Jordan and Britton Osborne, for making the whole trip possible and making it oh so magical and thanks to Beau Lawler for letting us stay at your house-you are the best! The trip was so fun, the road trip included.  We headed out Thursday night, stopped in St. George for Cafe Rio and then stayed the night in Las Vegas at the Excalibur! 

We left from Vegas in the morning and got to California in the afternoon and headed to the Rainbow factory, where I got a much needed new pair of my favorite flip flops on the planet and Ben got his very first pair.  We then headed to the beach! I'm always blown away at the beach and the ocean and how amazing it is! Why do I live in Canada again? JK I love both...Anyways we then headed on a long, traffic filled field trip to find a place to eat and after a series of unfortunate events we ended up having a great meal at Ruby's Diner on a cute outdoor rooftop.  We ended the night at the third largest mall in America-South Coast Plaza and a game of rook of course.

Saturday was pure bliss, Saturday was Disneyland day and I seriously can't explain in words how amazing it was.  Again, it was my first time, and when we walked into the park, climatic music playing and people surrounding me in mouse ears and the Disney castle is the distance tears streamed down my face! I know I know so dramatic but it was seriously like all my childhood dreams and the happiness  of it all came rushing in!  Jordan and Britt are Disney experts so they knew exactly what to eat, where to be at what time and the best things to see! We opened and closed the park with about a 14 hour day and it was better than I ever imagined! The park was so clean and special and detailed.  My favorite part was World of Color, the amazing light/fountain show  (also a tear-jerker), or maybe the fireworks or maybe Tower of Terror? Or Pirates? I couldn't choose a favorite part, but the whole atmosphere was just so happy and my dreams really did come true!  Now get ready for a major slew of Disney pictures...

These were supposed to be "Minnie" inspired nails

bahahaha-splash mountain! Our last ride of the night!

So to sum it up Disneyland was amazing and I want to go back tomorrow, there is so much to see!

Also on the trip we got to eat lunch at ESPN zone in downtown Disney, which is every guys dream restaurant, went to Balboa island and eat at BJ's, and we got to meet up with Kylie, and it was beyond good to see her and her boyf!  It was a perfect trip and again thanks to Jord and Britt! I'm thinking this will be a new annual tradition!
