What is today…?

Today is my amazing friends birthday!

So I decided on his birthday that I would make him his gift. I plan on printing it out and having it framed. I picked a photo of his girlfriend and him dressed up as The Incredibles.

I thought it suited the occasion perfectly because both of them are my personal super heroes. They can make anyone smile or die from laughing. Both are EXTREMELY caring and very talented. My friend Javier is going to film school while Brittany is striving to be a dentist.

She just recently came back from spending two weeks in Thailand so I know I can’t wait to catch up.

I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did to make it.Javier_22 (1)

DisneyLand

Yesterday was my sister’s birthday and we decided to go to Disneyland.

Since it was our last day as annual passholder’s I decided to take the day off of work. My mom and sister picked me up with Mc’dees and we were off.

We decided to meet my niece and cousin in Disneyland because she wanted to go meet the Star Wars crew. Since us three aren’t really any die hard fans we went on Radiator Speed Racer.

Once we met up we started to go on all the rides with them since they had to leave early. We went on the Buzz Lightyear, Matterhorn,  Its a Small World, Alice in Wonderland Tea Cups, Haunted Mansion and Thunder Mountain.

After that we went and had some linner (Lunch and Dinner) at the Plaza Inn. I had their fried chicken, green beans and mash potatoes. Since it was my sister’s birthday the crew member from the restaurant decided to make her feel special.  She was given a red rose and jam with a candle on top. This cute old man brought out his harmonica and began to sing to her and others that were also celebrating their birthdays.

We also went and got some treats after. My niece and sister got the Death by Darth. My mom, cousin and I had their Peppermint Beignets. I recommend trying them both. Later I bought a Mint Julep which is really refreshing and I got myself a cool bracelet.

Right when My niece and cousin were about to leave me aunt Sandra decided to join us.

We went on Buzz Lightyear again but got stuck and had to get taken out of the ride. My sister and I had fast passes for Space Mountain but since its the season of the force it was called Hyperspace Mountain. It was so awesome, if you are a die hard Star Wars fan you MUST get on this ride.

Meanwhile my aunt and mom went on the Buzz Lightyear and the Haunted Mansion since my aunt didn’t get to go on it with us. When we got out of the ride we met them at Pirates of the Caribbean.

When we were waiting in line my aunt surprises us and told us that with careful consideration they renewed our passes!

All in all it was a great day and I hope that my sister enjoyed herself.

* What I forgot to mention was that we say a Disney kitty there. It was so cute sleeping while everyone was oooh-ing and aww-ing at it.

My new favorite app

Celebrating Birthday’s

Good Morning Good Looking!

Yesterday I spent the day celebrating my loves birthday. We started the celebration this weekend since his birthday fell on Labor Day. But since I had to work on Monday I went in early so I could be able to afternoon together.

We had dinner at (enter here) and then went to get massages. When the night was almost over I surprised him with his favorite Red Velvet cupcakes and Napoleon dulce de leche.


When looking for the best delicious Red Velvet cupcake my niece and nephew recommended Porto’s. My boyfriend and I were anything but disappointed. They were so delicious! For the price and long ass line I had to wait, it was worth it. I highly recommend that if you have a sweet tooth or are craving a really good sandwich to check it out.

They are food and treats are affordable. But be careful what time and day you decide to go because on holidays like labor day they are PACKED.


Personally I love birthdays whether they are my own or others. I love going out of my way to buy something that will make them happy or feel loved. Every year I make sure to send an amazing loving text to close friends reminding them how special they are to me. I remind them how grateful I am, that they born and that I get another year to celebrate with them.

So if you are a September baby I hope that on your day you feel special. That you know that you mean the world to someone.
