So I’ve been up to a lot lately and every time I want to sit down and write a post of what happened the day before, I get too busy with what I’m doing the day of, and then the cycle continues the next day! I finally have a morning of nothingness so I just want to share the second half of my eventful first week of 2017 with you guys (wow that was a mouthful, if you understood that +1 brownie point to you). Also, you guys heard about the beginning half of the week since I was coming back from Big Bear and then relaxed a few days, so I’m going to start on Wednesday(:
This was my boyfriend and I’s 2 year anniversary! Woo! I’m a real romantic so I gave him one of the roses from my yard in a water bottle lol. First, we went to lunch at a cool, trendy place called the Anaheim Packing District. It’s kind of like a small food mall type of a place. It looks really cool inside, and the food isn’t half bad (or half cheap..).
Then, we went to Santa Monica, which was insanely pretty and so welcoming. I don’t remember ever going to Santa Monica, so I was in for a new experience and a great time! We parked at the mall just after 3rd Street Promenade (a high class shopping kind of street for people and no cars = super fancy for a filthy casual like myself) so that we wouldn’t have to pay an insane amount for just parking (it was still around $18, but that’s the price you pay for posing as a fancy person lol).
Then we headed to the Santa Monica Pier to go on a ride or two. Initially we planned to go on the Ferris Wheel and the Coaster, but we didn’t have enough time for both, so we just rode the coaster. It was so fun, while still being a little janky haha, and there was a surprise jerk at the end that made me die laughing both times we went on it (1 ticket = 2 rides). Then we walked up and down the pier, seeing performers and enjoying the scenery ❤
We also took a look at this tiny aquarium under the pier, which turned out to be way more fun than we both expected. While it was tiny, there were ‘touch tanks’ so you could feel squishy starfish and get hugged by those stick-like tentacles on sea urchins. There was a decent variety of fish and even one that we named Mr. Santa Monica, because he looked like he owned the place lol (as seen to the right).
After the aquarium, we made our way back up to 3rd Street and walked up and down it to check movie times, look at the big sales (which made some things actually normal priced lol) and EAT CREPES! We shared a strawberry and banana crepe, and it was sooooo good! Crepes are love, crepes are life; I’m a changed woman.
It started getting later so we ate dinner at a place called True Food Kitchen, and even though I wanted to try new and interesting food, we were both pretty hungry and went with the safe cheese pizza option (foodie failures). To be fair, it was still freaking fantastic for cheese pizza, though.
Then we went and saw ‘Why Him?’ and WE DIED. WE ACTUALLY DIED FROM LAUGHTER AND WE COULDN’T BREATHE AND EVERYONES INVITED TO THE FUNERAL, WE DIED. Sooooo funny! Plus we were in an AMC theater, so we got leg rests and comfy ass chairs- it felt so good to be fancy.
My feet were murdered by my shoes that day, so rest in piece feet.
On Thursday, I went over to a friend’s house and a couple of us made magazine collages! I freaking love magazine collages because they always turn out so funny (I guess depending on who makes them). I mean if you do a magazine collage with me, you will instantly understand my humor and who I am as a person. Like just look at that deer woman, like same hunty same. I’ve never related to art so much.
We also tried our hand at pancake art, which was not our first time as you can tell by the absolutely stunning pancake I made (not). Practice does not make perfect pancake art. I blame the fact that all our ingredients were expired (milk, eggs, etc.), because I’m a true artist and obviously my talent was diminished by these plebian products. Like I said, Santa Monica has changed me haha.
We went to a dog park! We took my boyfriend’s cute ass dog (Bailey) and let her roam free with a million adorable dogs! Like I’ve said before, I am a cat person, but dogs are chill too. I only get a little frazzled when dogs fight and start to whimper and then everyone’s just like ‘lol its cool they’re playing’. I’m just not down with that aspect. But there were so many good dogs there! Personally, I like the slow, thick ones (probably because they’re the most like cats) and he liked this one colorful, fast one. We stayed for a couple hours and let Bailey get soo dirty haha. Then we went and got Taco Bell for dinner because the fanciness from Santa Monica had worn off at this point lol just give me a 35 cent tortilla and I’m a happy girl. (Bailey’s the first fluffy dog, the second one is the colorful and fast one, and the last one is just some cutie that walked by ❤ )
Disneyland! It was like a triple date with us and my cousin and her boyfriend, and then his brother and his girlfriend. This was the first time I had gone with this group to Disneyland, and they were so fun! We went on a total of 6 rides, which completely tired us out. We started with Splash Mountain (which wet my pants like I peed myself- what can I say, those singing animatronics are scary), and then got lunch. Next we rode Big Thunder Mountain, Indiana Jones, and then made our way to Space Mountain. My boyfriend and I got to ride in the first row, which was awesome! It was insanely fast and made my face so cold lol. After that, we ventured to California Adventure to get free bread and some ice cream (only the essentials). Then we made a big mistake and tried to wait in line for California Screamin’, but the queue was so messed up by that time for some reason, and they were only letting on fast passers. We finally left the line after 40 minutes of waiting (ahh) and settled for Ariel (which actually was not settling at all since we got to sit for so long and give our feet a break). At this point we were so tired we could hardly come up with conversation. They had dinner reservations, but my boyfriend and I left a bit early. When I got home I passed out on the couch, full face of make up and fully clothed. I couldn’t even make it to my room haha.
Anyways, that was my week! Lots of fun, lots of money spent (oh god), but it was all worth it. Also, I HIT 100 FOLLOWERS?!?!?! Mind you that was my year’s goal so..WHAT. I’m so happy and feeling so grateful to have people somewhat interested in my lifestyle blog. I see so many themed blogs and sometimes feel like I went in the wrong direction with my blog, but hearing back from others reassures me that writing about whatever I find interesting is actually entertaining some people (which is amazing!). I’m so glad to have this place to track my life and find incredible people. As for my year resolution coming true in the first week, holy shit. Sorry for the language lol I’m still processing. I suppose my new goal is to hit 500 since that’s the next major milestone (idk about this folks). Lol like that’s going to happen.
Similarly to my 50 followers post, I want to ask you guys some questions to get to know you! Feel free to answer whatever you’d like in the comments, because I am genuinely interested!
