Daily Prompt [Recreate]

There are several moments I wish I could recreate:  my high school graduation; graduating from college; the day before my Dad passed away; a trip to California Adventure the beginning of July 2011 where I watched World of Color, and those are just to name a few.

I can absolutely 100% state that there is one moment I wish I never experienced, nor ever wish to experience again.


Daily Prompt [Shimmer]

As I first read today’s prompt, I thought to myself, “How does that song go?  Shining, shimmering, splendid?”

Since I am clearly not a writer, I have recently made more effort to write on these Daily Prompts.  For a ton of reasons (practice makes perfect!) but mainly so that I can (hopefully) write about other things than brain tumors and cancer, to show you I can be a really well-rounded person!  🙂

I love Aladdin.  It’s actually one of my favorite movies!

I have such fond memories of watching the Aladdin show at the Hyperion Theater at DCA in California.  Still heartbroken the show ended, but I know life must go on.

Want to know a secret?

I used to wish  hope  pray that if I ever got married my husband-to-be would propose somewhere at either park, but deep down I hoped the Aladdin show could have been the place.  “A Whole New World” kills me every time and I used to dream that would be the first song my husband and I danced to. ❤



Daily Prompt: Blanket

I’m sicker than a dog; burrowed under my blanket praying for daylight.

Please – Someone, somewhere, anywhere:  What do you do when you’re sick? I am drowning in Ginger tea with no end in sight.


This isn’t a Wordless Wednesday

I just am missing Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure something awful! 😦


Fun Fact Friday 7/4/14 (Happy 4th of July!)

Today’s Fun Fact is from 2007-ish; years ago I had an annual pass to Disneyland and California Adventure.  (I sure miss those days.  Fun, fun times.)  One of my favorite rides at California Adventure is this ride.  I don’t know what makes this ride so special for me.  Many rides at either park are dark rides and while I do enjoy Splash Mountain with the best of you, there’s something special for me here.  It’s just one of my faves.

At the end of the ride Roz watches each car as they drive up and makes pertinent remarks to the passengers in the car.

NOTE:  I had long, curly dark hair back then.  (You’ll see why this is important in a moment.)

I was with 2 other people in the back row, and Roz said to me, “Girl in the back row?  I like your hair.”
