Weekly Recap; April 1st – April 8th

I got to upgrade to an iPhone 8 (WITH 200+ GIGS OF MEMORY BOIIII) from an iPhone 6S. It’s taking me a bit of time to get use to it. I keep forgetting both sides of the phone are glass. Thus making it slip off of things even more easily.

When I handed the guy my phone at Verizon he took it from me, looked at it and said: “Do you not believe in phone cases or have something against them?” I’ve NEVER had a case on my phone ever since getting the iPhone 4. I had an Otterbox once that broke (and I never even dropped it so how the hell…) and I had a Snow White case when we moved to Disney the second time. But other than that, I DONT have a case on my phone.

I’m not gonna say I NEVER dropped it cause I do, sometimes frequently but even if it lands face down on hardwood floor I have NEVER broken my screen. The only damages I’ve done to my phone was probably water damage. Like, the first iPhone I ever got. But since then I’ve had a pretty good track record of keeping it in mint condition even without a case.

It worries me a little bit that this phone is glass on both sides. But I still don’t have a case, even though Bubba keeps insisting I get one. It’s my OCD, it doesn’t like cases on my phone (or anyone’s phone to be honest) so it makes it hard to find one that my OCD is okay with.

Hello, Travel

Valentine’s Day at Disney World

IMG_3359

I wish I had taken more photos during this time of year all the years I lived in Florida/Disney World but to be honest I only got to go to the parks once the whole time I lived there and I didn’t even get to walk around or really do anything so yeah, that sucked. But I did manage to snap this photo of hearts on the castle, this was back in 2013 by the way.

There was also a time when Candy Cauldron did customized apples, white chocolate with sprinkles were my fav. Last time I went there last April they said they didn’t do custom apples anymore. It was a sad sad day.

I don’t know what it is about seasonal sprinkles but they seriously make the treat that much more festive and enjoyable!

IMG_6722

Overall Valentine’s Day, Easter, Halloween and Fourth of July treats at Disney are probably my favorite time to see Goofy’s Candy Co at Disney Springs just bursting with colors and different treats of all kinds. I do love how around Valentine’s Day the Minnie apples and cake pop’s come out!

IMG_6724

The ones to the right were literally a pain to get a photo of because of the damn glare. But you can see the cutie cake pops next to the apples and I think those are better, personally.

I wish I could remember if we had Valentine’s Day themed treats when I worked at Candy Cauldron in 2011, but I honestly don’t remember at all. Working at a Disney candy shop though is a special kind of magic and if I’m being honest, my favorite kind of magic besides working in The Tree of Life and in Fantasyland.

I’m also slightly obsessed with Minnie and kind of always have been — at least since I first worked at Disney in 2011. I love that she wears an oversized bow. I don’t know what it is about that but I just love it! And plus she’s always decked out in pink and the world girly describes her.

Sadly I didn’t get one of these apples the day I snapped this photo and I didn’t get to go back as often as I’d like to so I never got to grab one. I was a little hesitant to be honest, as much as I loved my apple sliced I didn’t want to mess up the prettyness of this apple and it’s not like I could be like, “hey can I take a couple hundred photos of this outside THEN can you slice it?!” okay they WOULD slice it if I had asked and if I had done that, I know I did it for other people. The request really is not that crazy.

Huh, I don’t know why I didn’t get one!

But next time I’m in the parks around this time of year I’ll MAKE SURE to grab one!

IMG_3475

And just in case you needed proof — here’s a photo of when I use to prop my hair up so I could pin a bow to it like Minnie does, I don’t know how I got my bangs to part so nicely that day or how the heck the Pixie Dust looks like highlights but I freakin love this photo!

I’m also one of those people who stop by Sir Mickey’s at Magic Kingdom or the Bibbity Boppity in World of Disney to get covered in Pixie Dust. It’s my happiness, what can I say? My first Disney College Program apartment literally had glitter everywhere. It was awesome.

Have you been to the Disney parks around this time of year? What’s your favorite thing to do or your favorite treat?

Hello, Reflecting

Hello Spring \o/

Shut ya mouth, it’s Spring.

There was a Silverfish spotted on my wall — IT’S SPRING.

I’ve been sneezing my ass off for weeks — IT’S SPRING.

Bitch it ain’t 11° every night here in Texas — IT’S SPRING.

Hello

Happy Holidays!

 

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

Is it just me or does it feel like December just rolled by wayyyy too fast?! I swear I always have this problem every December… no, every Winter!

It’s been like 35* here lately and as someone who just moved from sunny always-summer-weather Florida I. AM. FREEZING! It’s making me feel like a cold baked potato and I just want to stay in bed ALL DAY LONG, it’s insane!

This year I’m not spending the holidays alone — I’m feeling a little bittersweet about it if I’m being honest! I’ve spent SO many Christmas’ alone that I feel like I don’t know how to function around people, if that makes sense. I’ve never been good at family get together’s as they’re not exactly something I have very much experience in so naturally I like just spending the holidays by myself watching the same movies over and over again: Serendipity, Misfit Island, and attempts to watch Love Actually (which I did actually successfully finish watching last year for the first time ever)! But I’m also happy people are looking forward to me showing up somewhere.

But still, I’m predicting I’ll be a little awkward and feeling out of place. After all, I am the new one to the family (well me and Sophie).

Hopefully next week I’ll have some super exciting (and terrifying) news to share. I was aiming for January but I’m getting super fuckin impatient lol.

I’m also going to be using the last week of December as my blog posts/IG posts posting catch up time because I was clearly a slug more times than I’d like to admit in December and didn’t get to post AS MUCH as I had HOPED to, not to mention I didn’t even realize hazearella had expired! Eep! I really need to work on that.

Speaking of working on things; I also need to work on a goals list for next year too! Bubba picked my {onelittleword} for 2018 as well and I like the word and idea he came up with! Not to come up with some goals for the year!

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday filled with laughter, love, good food and joy!

(Also, I’m obsessed with this Grumpy Poncho Bubba got me and yes, that Mario sweater IS what I’m wearing on Christmas Eve!)

Hello

Krispy Kreme adventures

I’m part of the Krispy Kreme rewards program (because when I lived in Florida I had to get my weeks worth every weekend) and I had gotten an email about half off a dozen assorted donuts so naturally I was like, hell yes.

I absolutely appreciate that my boyfriend knows that the majority of the time I buy snacks to take photos of them. And he totally understands. Well, as much as he can.

So we went and grabbed a dozen donuts and I had the hardest thing picking which ones. But the chocolate sprinkles are by far my favs!

Sadly the Snowman was crushed on the way home.

Hello, Recap

Weekly Recap; Nov 5th – Nov 11th

I can’t believe how fast this year is just FLYYYYYING on by! It’s pretty much mid November now meaning Thanksgiving is not too far away and once that happens it’s full blown Christmas until the end of next month.

The temp has been dropping here like crazy and I’m pulling out all my hoodies and I need to find my sweaters as well as reorganize my closet to fit all the winter clothes now that summer is finally gone!
