California Update - Day 1&2

Greetings from California! I told you I would keep you posted so here we go.

Day 1 - Travel Day
Day 1 consisted of travel. Yup that's about it. 12 hours to be precise!  Got settled in the hotel, had a nice meal and were in bed before 8pm local time!  

Day 2 - Disneyland
Needless to say, Day 2 started pretty early!  I think it was 5am and I had to keep telling my son it was too early to get up even though I was ready myself.   By 5:45 we were all up.

We decided today was the day for Disneyland!  A little play was definitely in order after all that travel. Here are a few of my favourite pictures from the day. 

We all had a blast.  I have to admit I was in tears watching the kid's reactions when we walked through the gates. They could not believe Mickey, Donald and Goofy were all there!  We got our very first picture and autograph of the day with Goofy.

 It is funny what you notice as an adult visiting Disney.  Trevor and I both were blown away with the attention to detail. Every square inch is perfectly thought out and designed. It was just incredible. 

Now for Business
Tomorrow will be another "play day" for this girl as we adventure out to the coast. But Monday will be ALL business as I "stalk" the show floor looking for (Tim...just kidding) THE hottest products and latest trends. Please keep the comments and suggestions coming. I am loving so many of the same lines as you!  I am keeping track of all suggestions and plan to see them all in real life and report back!!

Remember, tomorrow is our first Craft-Tea Time of 2014. Stop in the store between 10am and 2pm for a drink at Dekoko's and fun card craft at The Pickle!  Our SALE is still on as well! Check it out!!


Store Hours
Wednesday-Friday 10am-5pm
