17 Hours at Disneyland

That’s right y’all. 17 hours at Disneyland…on a VERY crowded day at that! 

But it was so fun! Especially after two days there the week before. Some recent outfits & fun photos:

Wait, who are these two? Rocky has a partner in crime, Roxy!! They like to adventure:

Space Mountain at 9:30pm? YES PLEASE!!

Stealin a cell phone to call an uber to go back to Disneyland? They did that too…

And poor Roxy riding the Jingle Cruise sans Rocky because this troll mama left him in the hotel….I didn’t want to lose them trying to carry both by myself that day…

I know y’all. I’m ridiculous. I made lots of pie and food this week too:

And it’s officially my FAVORITE time of the year…when the screeners come in:

And I can catch up on all the movies I never had time to go see. Instead of shopping (which I have done well with not shopping all weekend!)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Wednesday

This week is flying! My husband gets Friday off, which makes tomorrow our “Friday”. Which I am excited about! We have a packed weekend, our oldest is running CIF Prelims this weekend for cross country and then Sunday morning we will be at the post-race water table at the Disneyland Superheros Half Marathon!

Some recent outfits:

  1. Dress: Kate Spade (old)

And a recent addition handbag-wise:

I daren’t spill the beans on how inexpensive this bag was…but I will confess I also bought the rosy pink one too. OOPS! Total fluke find at my local outlet. 

On a more somber note, I know our country is in the middle of much turmoil. I typically avoid political posts/subjects, just because this is a fashion/FUN/shopaholic diary/blog, but I know it’s been a very emotional couple of days for so many. I don’t know what the future of America is, I just know we WILL survive because we always have. I hope healing can begin after a very ugly and brutal campaign cycle and that we will be okay. I have stayed neutral this entire time on any social media/internet platform, and will continue to do so. But my heart hurts for all the hate and violence, from everyone. 

Until next time,

Jules

I am trying to not look (it’s very hard). I really don’t need another dress. In fact, I should probably continue to clear my closet out. 

Some recent outfits….I’ve been settling into the “new normal”, and combined with the insane hot/cold/hot/cold weather patterns which flares up my health challenges (ugh), but still make an attempt to dress every day!

Some photos of the new holiday items at the outlets:

The pink polka dot bags are not real leather, but they sure are cute! I did pick up a penguin, I mean, with my collection of creatures I HAD too. He’s super cute! I haven’t made it into specialty, but there is some super cute pieces online. I’m not excited about the apparel (which my closet is probably excited about!), but they nailed it on keychains and glitter this year. 

Until next time,

Jules
