My Christmas present to myself was the most adorable creature in all of existence. I’ll let you decide which it is 😉 🎄🐾
Some thoughts from a Monday morning:
Over the break I got a blood test back and I’m apparently sensitive to some nuts, yeast, wheat and gluten so getting my head around that has been fun. I haven’t even really started properly cutting things out and I am already grateful for A. Potatoes and B. That I’m not a full vegan. But I just really love and miss bread, and I’m still eating what’s left in my freezer. Baking’s a whole new adventure now.. 🍰🍪🥧 When I’m stressed about something that’s on the horizon, all of my energy goes into-not preparing myself, but rather avoiding even thinking about it for as long as possible so I’m not full blown stressed for a longer period of time. While that’s all well and good, it means I also forgo anything that reminds me of working towards that horizon,and so I’ve been dawdling with posting on Instagram again post-social media break and part of me just wants to stay off. It’s so much easier to go around with your head in the sand and disconnected from everything, but that’s not how the world moves forward.
Fun lil storytime behind this photo: I was in the mini Mary Poppins exhibit in Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln when I felt someone come up right next to me while I was reading a plaque. I looked over and was spooked by none other than Mickey Mouse! We “talked” for a little while (there was a line that followed him inside from the rain), took a selfie, and messed with my hat. Disney is magical for those little moments!
Happiness is enjoying a #beyondburger at #hungrybear in Critter Country! 🐻🍔😋 I absolutely loved the Messy Melvin vegan speciality burger & it was such a relief to find a filling veggie meal that didn’t cost a fortune. Plus no crowds, no bathroom lines, & a calming view of the Mark Twain. 😌 What’s your favorite burger at @Disneyland?
I got my new Christmas Mickey ears! I know, it’s after Christmas now, but it’s my favorite time of year and I wanted a way to celebrate year round!
Big thank you to @enchantedalexandra for getting them to me so quickly! I have another pair of ears from her that I bought last summer (last picture), and she is one of my favorite ear makers ever! Definitely check her out!
