Disney Days

A couple weeks ago we went on a semi-spontanious trip to Disneyland. 
It was Madelynn's first time. 
We went on It's a Small World very first. Madelynn loved it and danced like crazy. 

My mom and I took the kids on the tea-cups. I was excited because we usually steer clear of Fantasyland but with three smallish children I got to go on them. 

We spent more time on the carousels than I care to admit. But let's get real. With a 5 minute wait and with Mckinley, how could we pass them up. They are her FAVORITE!!! 

Hunter and Mckinley both got hats this trip. They were pretty sweet. 

The new Little Mermaid ride is now one of my favorites. It was actually SUPER adorable. Mckinley was fun to take on it. One night it was closed and her world basically came crashing down. 

Hunter and Mckinley have this quirky love for maps. They always had their maps out and Mckinley was amazingly good at telling us where things were. It was quite impressive for a two year old. The picture above is Mckinley showing my mom where we were going next on the map. 

The first day we took the monorail into Disneyland. 
A little later that day Mckinley said she wanted to go on the thermometer. We weren't sure what she meant but we figured out that she meant the monorail. My mom and I ended up taking her and she loved it! 

 A rare picture of no one on the tea-cups. It was closed on account of the down pour that would occur 3 seconds after this picture was taken. 

My best score I've EVER gotten on Buzz Blasters!!! 

It was a very fun and successful trip. Seeing the kids love every minute of it was what made it worthwhile. 


Growing Up

Good news! In 4 weeks I will no longer be living with the current roommates I have. I know, I'm so sad. How will I ever live without them?!? Living in an unsanitary environment, listening to them and their boyfriends all night long, disgusting smells, gross food, raw meat left out for days.... I'm terribly sad to be leaving.

I hope you can sense the sarcasm. 

I'm moving to the cutest little apartment downtown at the end of this semester. I'm SO excited I can't even say. It's basically brand new and nicer than I could ever imagine. I did lots of house hunting before my mom and I decided that this would be the best place for me. You wouldn't believe some of the places we looked at. They were definitely pretty sketchy. It's amazing how people don't take care of  anything. 

I made my very first large purchase for my new/future homes. A living room set! 

It's so cute and super comfortable which is a major bonus! 

Feast your eyes. . . 

I am also in major debate mode about this kitchen table. I need to decide soon and don't know what to do.  Any opinions and comments are more than welcome! Help me out here people! 
I'm so excited to be moving words can't even say. I feel like this will be a huge stepping stone for me. Even though I'm in an "apartment" now I feel like this will finally be MY place and MY home. I already feel so much more grown up and I haven't even moved in yet. 
I can't wait to just hang out and be totally comfortable in my own place!
