Meet Olive.

Look at this face. Quite possibly the stinkin cutest thing I have ever seen.

effing adorable!!!!! Good Lord!

You know, I have been up until this point, a cat person. I love animals. But I have always drawn the line at the loveable creatures I would allow to cohabitate with me. Srtictly kittens. Then cats when they grow up. Ha ha. Ok, maybe a few fish here and there, once a turtle, and my first pet was a hamster.

But I couldn't have a dog. Not without a huge yard (which means I own a house....and that will not happen till i win the lottery) cuz dogs need their space too. To be free to express themselves. Plus enrollment in puppy boot camp is mandatory. Cuz I am NOT into getting jumped on at inopportune times or drooled on. Also, little yapper dogs are annoying.

Then I met Olive. She has changed my mind. I could have a dog. As long as it was just like her. :)

Here is a photo montage to help you fall in love too.

She is soooo small. And squishable!

Finding Nemo.

We had a run in with some good karma. We had arrived and were taking in the sights of Main Street Disneyland, attempting to take a self portrait of our first moments having fun when a family stopped us and asked us where we were from. Locals we replied. Which happened to be the right answer for they wanted to bestow upon us, bright shiny sparkly blue wristbands that would allow us to go on the newly revamped submarine ride to find Nemo. (It officially opens today.) We got to be VIP, pretend we won the wristbands through a radio contest and preview the ride before the general public. We felt special. Always a good way to start the day. I documented our voyage so that I could share it with you all. This way you are prepared for your adventure when you choose to take it.

Guess I do not need to go see the Great Barrier Reef anymore. I bet it looks just like this.

The Happiest Place on Earth

Oh how I love a day at Disneyland. :)

This is us having fun on The Tower of Terror.

Great ride. It is actually in the California Adventure part of the park. Did you know that you can buy beer over there? Whole new Disney experience. Ok, back to the ride.....

These small children on the ride with us were not having as much fun as we were!

Because we loved it so much we had to go on it again once Monkey had arrived. I loved it as you can see. Darcy can not stop giggling. Monkey doesn't understand. Betsey can't explain it to her in mid-ride so she gets caught between a scream, laugh and clap.

We went on rides.....and ATE!!!! The inspiration for the trip began with my craving for funnel cake. I feel like Disneyland may be the only place you can get that delicious pile of fried dough and powdered sugar. Well, maybe except for the county fair.....but I am not really sure where to find that here in LA. Churros and cotton candy were also consumed. Then there were the corn dogs.....about as big as my arm and fried to perfection as we watched!

Basically if it was fried or had sugar we ate it.

Search for new music.

Sometimes I will wander aimlessly through the internet from one link to the next, looking for new fun music.
Recently I found this new song I really liked. I had never heard of the singer before and figured I would share....
maybe you will like her mellow sound too.

Check out "Bubbly by Colbie Caillat".

Does anyone else have a new artist/song to share???
