Disneyland in a nut shell...

So I thought I could talk about DL for more then I couple of days but now that the holiday speed by me I'm over the DL until it's time to scrap it! LOL. And I just took a look and I shared most of my fave pictures! And soon enough (I hope) I'll be sharing the layouts!

So onto the next event...

Reed and I went to Cali as I said in the last post and we had a BLAST! We went to Simi Valley I had never been to that part of Cali and it's so pretty there!

We rented a car when we were at the airport and the guys hooked us up with this hot red convertible Mustang baby! As we were driving to meet Reed's co workers I heard on the radio that Tori Spelling was having a yard sale. It's been all over the media so I'm sure some of you heard about it. Well me being the NERD that I am insisted that we had nothing better to do and I REALLY REALLY (in my best little girl voice) wanted to go. So we get there and the line is LONG. So I had Reed go get some food and MONEY! While I waited. We ended up waiting for a total of 2 hours, met some awesome ppl had some great laughs and then met TS! OMG so fun going through all her stuff or things she bought to pretend was hers (who knows) and then to talk to her. It was fun! I got some good cheap stuff for family and me! You weren't allowed to bring camera's even your phones inside so this is me outside the house. Then was the work holiday dinner which was a blast and we had some amazing food! But I'm a true nerd and didn't take one picture! UGH! We totally dressed up and everything! Bummer! Oh well!

When we woke up the next day we decided to go to Hollywood Blvd and then we were planned to go to Rodeo but we got lost! LOL! Walking down Hollywood Blvd was fun, but so not what I expected. But I'll leave those comments for the layout! HA HA! Here's a pic of Reed and I in front of the Kodak theatre but not of the theatre. LOL.

Over all we had an amazing time! So happy to have that couple of days alone with my hubby! Love ya Baby!

I had never taken photos from the plane before (which duh you're not allowed too!) Opps, but no one has to know right! Just loved this shot!

A trip without the girls!

WOO HOO! Okay maybe that's mean to be that excited but OMG after driving 8 hours each way to DL we're so in need of a trip alone! And besides the girls are with Grammy and we'll be having a blast! My MIL said they're getting a visit from mrs. Doorknob today too (not sure what's with that) LOL, but they're going to have a blast! So when we return I will conitnue with the Disny pics! Until then...

California Adventure day two...

We so thought we could do this park in one day..yeah right! LOL! Now that the girls are a bit older it was hard to cram everything in, but I think we did a pretty good job. The fave was seeing Lightening MacQueen (sp) and Mator, that was awesome! The cars came down from afar (not sure how they were driven) and they had the music from the movie playing, it was way cool! The Aladdin show was another big favorite, along with the playhouse Disney show and the Bugs life land. I think the favorite for the entire family was the block party bash, this rocked!!! It was a lot of the characters from toy story along with the regular Disney faves. They were all dancing up a storm and right before they 'party' ended they would grab everyone from the streets and have them come up and dance too! So fun I tell ya! We had dinner at the fabulous Goofy's kitchen (by far my fave of all we're had) Chip and Dale were Neely's favorites and they could tell so they kept coming back it was so cool! We wanted to end the night with the fireworks and snowfall at DL, but it was canceled due to the wind...bummer. But Rylee and daddy had fun on SPACE MT. that girl is CRAZY! The theme for the rides was this..."Rylee did you like the ride (space/splash mt)?" YES "Are you glad you did it?" YES "Would you do it again?" NO! LOL!!! She cracks me up! So brave!

On to the pictures...

Disneyland day one...

Okay so this serisouly was the BEST family vaca we have ever had. And maybe that was b/c we were ALL able to really get something out of the trip and ALL enjoy it. We started the morning off with breakfast w/ Lilo & cool! So many characters were there it was an awesome way to get the day started. We decided we were going to go down Main St. go left and then go around the park that way, one ride/show at a time, no skipping all around going back and forth. It actaully worked too. Go figure! HA! The tiki room was a fave, the hanuted house...not so much but hey they went on it! Rylee and I did Splash Mt. how I got her on that I have NO idea! She's so brave! Neely saw Pooh and was in HEAVEN!!! I didn't think she was ever going to let go it was too cute! We ended the night a bit early with a few Fantayland rides done...they have way too many there BTW! ANd of course we had to see the parade...I have NEVER had one of the girls on my shoulders before and let me tell ya it was so NOT fun! Lets just say we ended up and a resturant in Downtown Disney and Reed and I polished off 2 bottles of yummy wine! My shoulders felt much better after that. Then we did some fun shopping, we each got some kick a$$ watches, the girls got some PJs and I got my new Tinker Bell coffee tumbler! WOO for the pics...
the fam with Stitch
Neely LOVES Pooh...can ya tell? And where's Rylee? Mad at the world b/c of Pooh I guess! HA!
Okay I'm done, no food just let me sleep!
Some nice lady took a pic of us...thanks lady!
The best picture these girlies have taken in FOREVA! And look Nee Nee is looking at the camera! WOW!Yup very much needed at this point!
She's way too big for my shoulders!

So there yo have it in a nice lump some...kinda quick, I think. And I even hit most of the fun parts, well at least the ones I can remember! Until tomorrow...

We're home...

well kinda. We're actually at my inlaws and spending the night. The drive was a little too much for all of us so we decided to take a long pit stop at grandma and grandpas. So I thought I would show you all some pictures of our first night in Disneyland. We spent Thursday at Downtown Disney ate at the Rainforest Cafe and then spent way too much $$$ at build a bear! But it was so fun! The whole trip was a BLAST and I can't wait to show some of the pictures with all my friends and family as the days go by. There were so many fun times I thought I would post a few pictures from each day over the next few days. So here are some pics from Thursday night...

It's over!

And i'm glad! Yesterday was a BIG day and I'm tired. I know the strep has to do with that but man I'm beat! We did have an awesome time though. We started with my moms street I have two girlfriends who live over there so we met up with all 7 kiddos and it was SO cool! They have all known eachother since babies and it was cool seeing them so big. Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting Then my mom and I took the girls to a VERY nice neighborhood for trick or treating and it was so fun. The houses were spread apart which lead to A LOT of walking BUT it was so fun the houses were all decorated so cool and there were a TON of kids everywhere! We really worn those girls out! Rylee and Tiana were okay with ending the night b/c they knew that meant candy! Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting And Nelly well not so much...a little sad. Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Can't wait to see all the pictures for you all!

It's offical!

I hate this stupid strep throat and I DO NOT like my doctor! UGH! I'm off to bed I can't take any more of this. Sorry such a cranky post! Hope you have a better night!

So I hear you've been waiting...

LOL, you know who you are! ;) So things have just been INSANE! I don't even know where to start. Well I guess I could start with saying I'm one of the new DT members for Kit 'N' Kaboodles monthly scrap club! YAY! So excited to start this new adventure!

Tomorrow is Halloween and I'm freaking b/c I think I'm getting strep again! UGH! I don't know what the heck is wrong with me. My know the grandma that knows it ALL! Says I need to stop doing everything I'm doing and only take and pick up my girls from school. Yeah like that is going to happen. LOL! So I have a doctors appointment in a bit and pray it's not strep and that they can figure out why I keep getting this. Three times in 6 months is a little crazy, I think. And with Reed gone, Neely's birthday party Sunday this is serisouly the last thing I need. UGH!

Sorry to have another BLOG post with whinning but hey this is my life right now! At least I have you girls here for me! THANKS!

I'll post again later with my results from the Doc. Hey that will make 2 blog posts in one day, does that mean I'll be good for a month!? Just teasing ya! (Quote from Nee Nee)

I've said it before...

and I'm saying it again. I am a BAD BAD blogger! So after I posted the last time I worked for the entire night on my new website and blog through iweb and yes a still have A LOT to do! Then last week we were on vacation, so didn't do anything of course and then I was way busy Monday & Tuesday right after we got home and then the kicker...I now I have STREP THROAT! UGH!!! And of course Reed's not here so it's been WAY fun. PLUS Rylee didn't have school today, so that was another FUN thing added! Actually they both have been really good "taking" care of momma. We've just hung out watched cartoons and movies like all day. So I'm done whining, just wanted to let you all know that I am still working on the new blog!

Have a great weekend!
