Almost two weeks ago Jeff and I went with family to Disneyland. It was a Tuesday, the week before all schools had gotten our for the summer and Everyone was there! Seriously, the place was packed with teenagers and middle school kids who were all celebrating their graduation. You literally had to hold on to the people you were with to get through the park. But it was SUCH a fun day!

This is on the Jungle Cruise, which was probably one of the shortest lines but a very relaxing and funny ride with lots of hippos, piranhas, elephants, and tigers.

The lines that we waited in ranged from 30 mins to 2 and 1/2 hours. We saw an awesome parade and a really cool firework show, ate their delicious churros, had ice cream, and took our picture in front of the castle of course!

We had such a fun day and I loved spending time with my cousins. Todd, Jeff and I waited in line for the new Star Tours from 9:45 pm to about 12:30 am and though some of us have different stories, I'd say it was well worth it.

The Walls are Changing!

So its been a while since the wall next to the stairs has been decorated so I decided, (and mom gave me permission) that this would be my project for the day. Here is how it turned out.

The first shelf...

Second shelf and as part of the update I redid the frames.

I Love Lucy

For as long as I can remember I have been in love with the show

I know every episode and know most of the punch lines in them and still love to watch them when I get the chance. The things I love about the show are these;
It is simple and easy to follow
It has a light and uncomplicated humor
I love the clothes, the style, and the beauty
And its a show about a family, friends, and love with no drama, no hate, and no bitterness.

Of course the most appealing thing about it is the humor and there are really some hilarious episodes, like this one where she gives my favorite line"Do you pop out at parties? Are you unpoopular?

And this one where she does the act "Slowly I Turn" in which if anyone says the name Martha she sprays them in the face, and hits them with a bag until she "snaps out of her trance" (which sounds violent but it really isn't that bad).

And this one where she is training to be a ballerina and is told to lift her leg level with the bar and ends up flinging her leg up and getting it stuck and then hanging upside-down when she really tries to get it off.

But my all time favorite episode is where Lucy tries and tries to tell Ricky that she is pregnant in a cute way at home, but nothing ever works out, and she gets so sad and frustrated. She decides to go to his night club and requests a song "I'm having a baby, My Baby and Me" anonymously, and while Ricky is singing and asking couples if its them who requested it he finally makes it to Lucy and she calmly nods yes. While he goes on unbelieving then realizes and stops singing and it is the happiest moment where he is So So excited to be a dad and they are so in love! And that makes Me Love Lucy even more. The fact that on TV such a special moment can be shared and displayed in they way it should-in a loving marriage.

Our First Home!

Well we just got back from our house hunting trip in San Antonio, TX. We found a home that is in close proximity to Jeff's medical school and my work and we might just even be able to work out driving together to and from. Here are pictures of our future home.
