I'm back! And what a week it has been!
Disneyland was wonderful. The weather was perfect and it wasn't crowded at all. Most of the rides we just walked right onto. I got to ride Haunted Mansion three times which made me happy. I have to say I was a little disappointed with the changes they made to Pirates of the Caribbean. It's all about Jack Sparrow now. Sacrilege!!! We were also two weeks early for the opening of the Finding Nemo ride. Guess I'll have to do that next time.
I'm really glad my husband likes Disneyland. I think that might have been a dealbreaker. (that and I could never be with someone who doesn't love animals!) It will probably be awhile before I get back back to Disneyland so I made sure that we did it up right!
My mom threw a lovely backyard party for me on Sunday. We had thirty people come!!! I don't think I even KNEW thirty people in Denver. My life has really changed. Mom made all of my Tex-mex favorites and Gary grilled artichokes and chicken and vegetables. It was a lot of fun. I really wasn't expecting people to bring gifts and I got so many wonderful things. Even from my faraway friends like Vieve and Gary and Purl!!! And I received some really unexpected gems as well. One couple gave me a book from their family library that was published in 1878! And a family friend gave me a set of Depression glass that belonged to his grandmother. Wow! I can't believe how spoiled I am. My cup runneth over!
I will do the birthday giveaway drawing tonight. I'd say your odds are pretty good. Maybe I'll try to find a small prize for everyone who entered. Entries are now closed.
Now, you'll have to excuse me so I can catch up on my blog reading!
