DISNEYLAND!!!

Disneyland is probably my favorite place on this planet.  I don’t really know why, but when I think of Disney, I just immediately become overjoyed!  So, I’m thankful for having some friends who feel the same way about it!

My lovely friend Lacy had her 19th birthday on February 28, so we decided to go to Disneyland to celebrate!

So, Monday the 27th at about 11pm we got on the road from Vegas to Anaheim. There wasn’t any traffic so it was a smooth drive straight there!  We stayed in a little motel for the night and got some sleep for our big day!

As we arrived at Disneyland and walked up to the gate, we scanned our tickets overjoyed when we head the WORST sound EVER!!!! The ticket was being declined.  Not just one ticket either, no, 2 tickets.  Nick and Ashley’s tickets were both declined and Lacy and I had already gone through the gate.   Now, if you haven’t been to Disneyland before, the tickets expire one year after purchase, so as long as you don’t scan them you can go anytime.  However, once you go through the gate you can’t get a refund.  Whether you were inside for 5 minutes or 5 hours.  It doesn’t matter.

Now we start to panic, because Disneyland tickets are not cheap.  Apparently, what had happened, Disney refunded the tickets to the cards and the money would return in 3-5 business days.  This is upsetting because now how are we supposed to enjoy our day at Disney if we don’t have everyone there.  So, I ended up paying for Nick’s ticket in full and then Ashley and Nick payed for her ticket.  We made it in the park!

Now, the world was our oyster!  We walked around and rode on so so many rides!  I don’t know about you, but I love to be comfy at Disneyland.  So, before we left, Ashley and I went shopping!

Pretty much, the moral of the story is – don’t take life for granted.  Take an adventure, stay up that extra hour, do what you want to do to be happy because in the end that’s all we have.  Memories and joy.  Live your life.

Break Over!

I’ve just returned from Washington, and boy oh boy was it beautiful! I am so excited to share everything I did!

First things first is the flight!

IMG_2351

I love flying (as you may have read in my post Traveling!) and I was so happy to fly to Washington for my visit with my family! When I arrived, I walked straight off the plane down to the baggage claim and lucky me my bag was right there on the carousel waiting for me! Then I proceeded to my grandma’s house to hang out and relax for the day.

While we were there, my grandma insisted on bringing me shopping which, obviously, I would never pass up! IMG_2354These are the things I bought! All of the shirts are from PacSun, but the shoes are from Famous Footwear (I think).  Anyways, I bought a white shirt with a red collar that has a cute pup on the front and says “snap me” in cursive above the dog (snapchat is tasianicolec).  I also got a grey shirt with a  maroon collar which reads “too cute to care” in cursive! Also, there is a grey long sleeved top that cuts down the front in a low V with strings across, and then also a black and white stripped dress.  My grandma also insisted on buying me a pair of Adidas, black and white and they are so super comfy!

So the next day we just stayed around the house and then went to Olive Garden for a late lunch, but then the next day I hung out with my cousin and we had dinner at my grandmas and I met his lovely girlfriend Meghan.

Finally, on Friday I hung out with my cousin David and Meghan all afternoon/evening.  We went to a park and we were pokemon hunting (pokemon go is an awesome game, might I add) and then we went to the roller skating rink and we hung out with a few more of David’s friends from his school.

Saturday I sat around the house bored, until my grandma decided that I needed to get a new purse so we left the house and went shopping again!IMG_2370I got a black Michael Kors purse which was quite expensive but it is so cute and simple and I love it so so much.

Finally, Sunday came and it was time for my cousin’s party! We hung around by the pool and ate lots of food.  The party was very fun and I was so happy to have gotten to see him before he left and also I really loved meeting Meghan and her sister Ellie (who is her twin).

IMG_2393After the party I went back to my grandma’s house and had quite the dilemma with 2 spiders in the room I was staying in, so I decided I was going to sleep in the living room for the night!  Overall, the trip was so so amazing and I am so grateful I got to go on it!

Monday morning I woke up at 5am to catch my flight back to Vegas, and I was sitting next to a guy who oddly smelt like Ritz crackers… I know, weird.  On the flight I wrote 18 pages of a story that I have been avidly writing for my friend Rachael, and I was very productive! When I stepped off the plane it felt as though it was a hot hair dryer outside considering I had just come from 70 degree weather and it was 105 degrees when I arrived home.  Yay for living in the desert… 😦

winter is here, better bundle up!

Thank you to everyone who continues to read my blogs, you’re all awesome.

 

But winter is here! So it’s getting a little cold out.  How can we fix it? BUNDLE UP!

I love winter time because it is the best time for cuddles, hot chocolate, sweaters, boots, scarves, you name it.  It also is the best time for winter dates to the movies to see a Christmas movie or go and see the lights at different places.  It’s all so exciting and wonderful.

How do I bundle up?

Below I have a few pictures of me and my friends at Mount Charleston where we encountered snow.

So how did I stay warm in the snow?

I wore plain black leggings, grey UGG boots, a black t-shirt, a cream colored sweater, a white and grey scarf, a cream mittens like headband, and black and white mittens.

This outfit kept me warm in the snow and I was able to have a wonderful time.  I had such an amazing time up on the mountains so thank you Dane and Owen for inviting me.

 

Thanks for reading! xx
