Disneyland Day

Most women, ahem, my age (over 30 under 40) tend to enjoy a day at the spa. Being pampered. Me? I prefer a day at Disneyland with a handful of wonderful friends I have met over the last few years. We show up, we cruise the park, hop on a few rides, and EAT! Well, today was a Disney Day! Well, California Adventure to be exact (for me anyway, I didn’t park hop). The weather was spring like and gorgeous, so I wore this: 

   
    
 

  1. Cardigan: Kate Spade (outlet find 2+ years ago. Back when I would order from Woodbury Commons in NY)
  2. Dress: Kate Spade (this is an older style, 2012-ish?)
  3. Belt: Kate Spade (currently on sale!)
  4. Shoes: Christian Louboutin, strassed in Alexandrite AB
  5. Handbag: Kate Spade (outlet style)

I don’t normally take lots of photos on a Disney day, instead I mainly just enjoy being there. Today we decided to play some arcade games, and I snagged some great prizes (hint: EVERYONE wins at the go fish game!), I actually pulled 3 “medium” prize fish out of the tank today, which netted me 3 of these guys:

 

I also had many small creatures, to which we created some “Disney Magic” by passing them out to unsuspecting children on Paradise Pier. I brought some home for my kiddos as well….but for the Mickey’s? I gave one to my friend and so I have two left….unsure what will happen to these! But it sure was fun to “win” them!! Yes you have to pay to play, but it was fun and I feel worth every penny. Disney may be pricey, but I feel it’s worth every penny. No one does it like Disney, no one! 

I was out of there by 1:30, fighting traffic all the way home. But it was a nice escape from the stresses of the last week. Now it’s off to an early bedtime to finish the “spa” experience! 

Until next time,

Jules

No one, and I mean NO ONE does fireworks like Disney!!!! Amazing!

Tuesday morning I was invited to attend a coffee master tasting at a local Starbucks (much needed after the late night at Disney the night before!!!!). It was SO amazing!!!
