My Summer Reading List 2015

Hello Darlings!

Every time I go to Target or find a book store (they are pretty much nonexistent now) I always see so many books that I want to pick up and read. Summer is the perfect time to head to the pool or the beach and relax with a book in hand. Here are some books that I've spotted and can't wait to pick up!

A Hot Glue Gun Mess by Mr. Kate- Mr. Kate is one of my all time favorite bloggers/vloggers. Her video on how to do a sock bun was the first beauty tutorial YouTube video I ever watched. From her channel I discovered so many other bloggers that  introduced me to the world of beauty blogging. I've started reading this book and I have to say it's HILARIOUS. I've found myself laughing out loud so many times. Plus, in between the funny stories there are awesome and easy DIY's. I'll definitely have to try some of those out too!

Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee- To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my all time favorite classic books, so when I heard Harper Lee wrote a follow up I knew I had to read it! I really hope it's just as good as TKAMB, and I'm sure it will be. Can you imagine the pressure Ms. Lee must be under to have a great follow up to Mockingbird?!

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion- One of my very good friends read this one and she said it was SO good! She also said it's a lot like what being in Sheldon Cooper's mind from The Big Bang Theory must be like.

Fight Club 2 comics by Chuck Palahniuk- So Chuck Palahniuk is my favorite author and Fight Club is my favorite book. You can only imagine how much I freaked out when I heard Chuck would be making Fight Club 2 into a series of graphic novels. I've read the first two and I'm not disappointed! I can't wait for the rest to come out!

What are you reading this Summer?

Happy 60th Birthday Disneyland!

I realize I'm a couple days late...Oops...

But Happy Birthday to my favorite place in the whole world!

I remember my first time going when I was 4 years old. I was in awe of this magical place from seeing Mickey walking around, to eating my first Mickey shaped ice cream. Everything was perfect. As I grew up I discovered that Disneyland was a place where I didn't have to worry about the outside world. It was my one break from reality where I didn't have to worry about tests coming up at school, or now the work I have to get done at my job. When I go I really do leave every stress at the gates and enjoy every moment I have there. I can go on the rides over and over again and never get tired or them. I can eat a churro every night and never get tired of their sugary deliciousness. And at the end of every night I enjoy sitting in front of the castle and taking in the moment that I'm in my happy place.

My favorite people to go with are still my parents. Even thought I'm 25, it still feels as if I'm a child experiencing everything all over again for the first time when I'm with them. My parents love of Disney has passed down to me, and I hope to one day pass that down to my children as well. Disneyland isn't just a place to me, it's my childhood, my happy place, and a place that gives me hope when I feel like I can't accomplish my dreams.

The tradition lives on with family vacations to Disneyland and I will be there next month! It's all I can think about! I always watch all my vacation planning Disneyland videos before I go to gear up, as well as my super old Disneyland Sing-A-Long...( I'm starting to sound like a crazy person, right?).

So cheers to 60 glorious years Disneyland. Walt would be proud of how far his park has come...but I don't think very proud of the crazy expensive prices to get in...

I love you Disneyland. See you soon!
