I'll re-read the books if there's time to spare.




Yay! Our first Disneyland trip this year! We live even closer now so it was a breeze getting there and back. We also listened to Gary Lewis and the Playboys on our way and they are one of my favorites.
Gabe ran in and got me a spinach and goat cheese bun at Bottega Louie before we left. It was like a savory croissant. SO GOOD. He got himself a beignet.

We took Birdie dog parking in the morning so she would just be tired and sleep while we were gone. It seems like there's always one mean dog at the dog park that ruins everything. If your dog is mean to other dogs, why on earth would you bring it to a dog park with no leash? Geez. I might start running with her. But I hate running. Maybe we should just get her a playmate of her own! Boston #2. :)

Anyway, I love Disneyland. We'll probably go once a week this year. Magical dreams can come true. I just want to keep the wonder alive in my life for ever and ever.

An interesting note about my companions shirt is that it is a vintage Pendleton shirt that was sold exclusively in Disneyland's Frontierland in the 50's. EEK! My sis and mom found it for Gabe on etsy for Christmas and it just so happened to fit perfectly and have such a fun history.

So, I had to wear red polka dots. That's a given for Minnie Mouse-ness. I just got these tights yesterday from J.Crew and I really like the color. I keep calling it mushroom but it would be more like a sauteed mushroom than a raw mushroom. Also, I can't get enough of red and pale pink together. Other than that, this little beaded bag was perfect to hold my iphone (Yes! Got the iphone 4 finally!), lipstick, and ID for Dland.

Ok, I'm going to try and convince Gabe to take us to get some Thai take-out to round out our weekend. :)

  3. "Sauteed mushroom than a raw mushroom" I love it! You're so adorable! And... if you ever get a Boston # 2... I have 2 papillons and trust me, it's worth it. They play ALL. THE. TIME. They get so tired from playing and it's so nice to see them play together and not be bored!

  5. what a fun day. it was only appropriate that you wore red and polka dots. i haven't been to disneyland since i was a little girl but i've been dying to go back.

    my frenchie is not so nice and i know better than to let him off leash around other dogs. shame on those naughty dog owners.

  6. Love the tights! Such a fabulous color! And your Disneyland polaroids are so much fun! I'm so jealous :D I haven't been to Dland in so long. I'm much over-due on a SoCal trip in general; I need my Huntington Beach fix!

    And it always takes that ONE to ruin everything for everyone else. There's a lady who brings her dog to the park all the time and he's mean as all get-out. He actually snapped at Schnitzel once and I reported it.

    I don't understand why people bring their dogs if they know their dogs are grouchy or possibly a danger to the other animals. It's ridunkulous! Lol!

  10. This outfit is perfection for a Disneyland trip. I miss Disneyland so much. I haven't been since 2007, which I know is beyond belief but I guess we just haven't had the time. I wanna make it a priority to go this year at least once. I owe it to myself right? Anyway, I'm glad you had a lovely weekend. :)

  13. i've wanted to go to disneyworld since forever but i never have! i am in LA this June though so i'll have to look into it.

    and you look gorgeous as ever :)

  14. you look so adorable in the top left hand photo! best blonde minnie ever! also, i know i'm meant to be concentrating on your fashion but the background of your street shots make me long to go back to LA. I love that the steets are paved with wonky slabs rather than boring tarmac like in the UK and the light in your photos makes me want summer more than anything! also, this probably makes me sound super creepy but your hair looks so soft! x
