Motivational Monday

Good Morning!

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend! This weekend was nothing but pure joy for me. On Friday I attended my boyfriend’s company Christmas party and I couldn’t believe how much fun I had. The people there were so welcoming and made everyone feel so comfortable. They had delicious food and games that included prizes.

Then on Saturday we slept in and decided to go on a small adventure to another city. While on Sunday we decided to do the opposite and wake up early to go see Rogue 1. I absolutely loved the movie and felt like they couldn’t have done a better job. We managed to sneak in Trader Joe’s holiday cookies that were so delicious and fit the mood so wonderfully!

It was sad knowing that the weekend came to an end. But then again I’m beyond excited to know that I get to enjoy my three day weekend at home with my boyfriend. He is pretty lucky and has a five day weekend. So he knows that I’m jealous that he gets to stay home longer than I do.

So as I start my Monday I hope that you guys remain as strong as I do and power this the week strong. I know that the days will just fly by and before we know it, it will be Friday!!!

She was on a journey that required her to be fierce. It was called Monday.:

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.
