jesus, what a weekend! i don’t know how to start. thursday evening i went to my friend abby‘s house, and met her new puppy. they haven’t decided on a name yet, but the one most people in her family agree on is layla. i like that one the most :) for a baby bernard, it’s adorable!
so at 5am on friday morning we had to get up to catch a 7:15AM flight to long beach, since we were heading for disneyland in anaheim! it was only an hour flight, but compared to an 8 hour drive it was worth it. i felt kind of sick at first, it being so early and the plane was so small…only 25 rows! so i had a minor headache which went away after we landed.
i can’t even describe what we did in disneyland. we went on practically all of the fun rides…we didn’t have time to go to toontown though. i went on california screamin for the first time, along with thunder mountain. i didn’t like cali screaming but i loved thunder mountain! i thought i would be afraid of space mountain, because i was last month when i went briefly, but it was a lot more fun.
we stayed at the grand california hotel, which is one super nice hotel. we got tons of coupons for things such as preferred seating, free lanyard and pin for the strange pin trading thing disneyland has, and also a private entrance to california adventure and downtown disney, along with tons of other things. and also, fastpass…:D
i had the greatest waffles ever. if you ever go to disneyland BE SURE to try the mickey shaped waffles. my goodness.
i actually wore my minnie dress on sunday too…even though i’m 14! i had to tell the ticketing ladies that i was 12, and i was fine. i had to even wear my dress to the airport, eek that was so embarassing lol! i didn’t get to meet minnie though! since i couldn’t go to toontown :( but i went on a lot of rides so i’m pretty happy.
uglydoll is not to scale with bag, i just wanted to edit them together xD
so, things i bought? well, the kitson kids store in downtown disney was really exciting and i wish i could have bought the store. but i settled on a kitson edition uglydoll that you can only buy there…since i love uglydolls :) his/her name is ket! there was a night time version too, which was blue, but i prefer the regular one :D
i also bought my little brother an adorable goofy hat. i wanted to buy him this cute toy tigger, but i was too poor…since my debit card is still broken! by that, i mean when i try to buy with it, it reads ‘invalid’. so i was left with $100 – $20 uglydoll – $25 goofy hat which leaves me with $65. which brings me to my next and last buy, which were minnie mouse slippers! i’ve decided my favorite character is not bambi or thumper anymore, but it’s minnie mouse! (sorry pooh, i love ya but i’m gonna go with the classics for now.) so that was another good $25. it took me a while to find them since i needed a small and i assume little kids wanted these slippers so their parents had to buy them size small. i originally found these at the world of disney in downtown disney but found my size at the ‘emporium’ store on main street in disneyland. aah i sound like a disney nerd…i’m not! haha. so $65 – $25 leaves me with $40 which was spent on ice cream, sodas, a really bad frozen lemonade DRINK when i really wanted the ICE CREAM kind, and caramel apple. it was the first caramel apple i’ve ever had in my life! but man it was good…except i only ate like a few bites of it since it was messing up my braces D:
anyway, blah blah blah rides walking hurting legs etc. then we arrive at our destination and i find tons of little gifts for me; first off, my mom went to a jewelry show of one of my family friends and bought me a blue flowerly necklace. it’s handmade and it’s really pretty. i didn’t bother asking how much it was considering it was a gift…xD
AND the ponyo keychain that i ordered came. i bought one in japan last august, but my mom gave it to my friend a few weeks later when the new people mall in san francisco opened, which is like a japanese fashion mall in SF. i was sorta devastated because i really like it, and so i finally found one on amazon and it came super fast. it’s so cute, and it’s pretty rare! i think there’s only one more on amazon and a few on dreamkitty.com..but dreamkitty has really expensive shipping so be careful!
and last but most definitely not least, my mom was super kind and dropped by the BABY THE STARS SHINE BRIGHT lolita fashion store in new people mall and picked up a lucky pack. a lucky pack is…a ‘blind box’ bag that contains 4-5 times more than what you pay kind of? so you might get a dress, blouse, and socks (lolita, of course) which is worth 500-600 dollars but you pay $140. so my mom went by and had the sales associate pick out one based on which fits me (size M, since japanese sizes run small, and light/sweet colors in sweet lolita.) my mom opened it before me but she laid everything out on my bed upon my return! so nice XD
and i am SO HAPPY! i got the snow dot bunny set!!! each lucky pack is different, and in some cases it can suck badly. but i love mine! my mom picked bag #20 since my birthday is january 20 (my mom always picks things on my birthday, even like lotto tickets! and most of the time she wins like $20…exciting much?!) the bag is to the left. i never throw away the bags. some people even collect them O:
SO the first thing i see is hanging on my door, and it’s the mint necklace~! it looks/feels like a piece of candy aah it’s so cute! it can be worn casually too! and on top of the heart is the BABY logo :)
next was a white…nightgown, it seems? it’s not really my favorite but still cute, and i think my mom really likes it..but if she ends up not, i’ll just sell it to someone who really does want it.
next was a …bonnet o__O i’ve never really worn headdresses when in lolita so i thought this was really hilarious. it looks cute though! and it matches the ‘jumper skirt’ that i got. yep that’s right, i got the snow dot bunny jumper skirt in off white! so awesome, since i really wanted it last time i went to the BABY store too! aah i’m so happy! okay lots of pictures now.
btw it all looks like it’s an icky yellow but it’s just under 1AM artificial lighting…eek hahaha
the nightgown thing XDthe bonnet! :D
upsettingly, i found out this morning that i left my REALLY expensive hair straightener in the hotel…i’m talking $500. (yes it’s expensive, but awesome hair like mine takes effort…;D). i was really pissed off at first but i called the hotel twice and they ended up finding it! it’s gonna be sent back to me, yay :D i was so upset for a few hours haha!
