Don't leave us hanging!

Can't wait for the next installment!

I definitely recommend Friday Night Lights ... but then again I am not familiar with the whole football culture! I really enjoyed this series because of the interaction between the characters.

LOVE.THOSE.PINS!!!!! I'm envious! What a find--and a great price!

I'm salivating over that pretzle--didn't know they had those at Whitewater Snacks!

Have you put up a picture of Stupey Doodle yet?

That's it??????????

I hope that next installment comes around quickly!

That was nice that the CM whipped up a fresh batch of pretzels!

We were shocked as well on how cold it gets here. When we moved to OC Jan 2011, we barely needed sweaters. By December we were lighting logs in the fireplace to take the chill off many mornings.

I never thought once about going to the Disneyland hotels' lobbies during the holidays but will try to do that this year when are blocked out from the parks, just to see the decorations.

And now I'm itching to know where that thrift store is. :D looking forward to more of your journey/story!

1. Weather - It always amuses me when people say that it isn't cold in California. I have lived here my entire life, and I know that it does get cold from time to time. Sure it's not Chicago-cold, but it can easily drop down to 30 degrees in SoCal and much lower than that in the mountains. It's certainly cold enough to bundle up and bust out the hot cocoa!

2. Christmas movies - "Love Actually" is on one of the HBO channels right now! Sam's dad just bumped into the Claudia Schiffer lookalike and is googly-eyed.

"Elf" (another favorite) was on Starz earlier this morning! Such a great movie.

Do you and Tracy get the Hallmark Channel? You mentioned "The 12 Dates of Christmas," and I wondered if you had ever caught any of the 2-month long Christmas countdown marathons that start on Hallmark in early November and run until early January. Every weekend during those 2 months, they run Hallmark holiday movies (along the lines of "12 Dates...") all day and night, and I have become addicted. The movies are usually frothy, upbeat, harmless, good-natured, Christmas fare -- almost always involving a disenchanted woman who dislikes Christmas and romance....and by the end of the movie she loves both Christmas and a guy! Some of the best movies they show are "Farewell, Mr. Kringle," "The Most Wonderful Time of Year," "Trading Christmas" and "Mrs. Miracle," but there are a lot of good ones.

3. Hidden Mickeys -- I love the hidden Mickey in the Marceline's Confectionery sign/logo. That's always been a favorite.

I don't know if you saw it, but there is a hidden Mickey by or on the front door of Vault 28 in DTD as well. You may have to walk right up to the door to see it, and it's better to do that when they have not opened yet and the front door is closed, but it's there!

Another favorite hidden Mickey is in the grandfather clock in the GCH lobby, but I don't know if it has been replaced. It was gone the last time I looked.



4. Gingerbread houses? I may have missed it in one of your previous posts, but was the little gingerbread neighborhood still up in White Water Snacks when you stopped in there during the holidays? It wasn't just one house -- there were two houses with cute little snowmen and reindeer in front.

Storytellers Cafe also has a different (larger) gingerbread house every holiday season -- the one in 2011 was really aromatic. The one in 2012 was not as fragrant, but it was still fresh gingerbread. In 2010, apparently Storytellers briefly put up an elaborate Haunted Mansion Holiday-themed gingerbread house...and then quickly took it down for reasons that remain mysterious. Only one waiter admitted to having seen it for a second, while everyone else in the restaurant feigned ignorance. A year later, some of the Storytellers employees confessed to knowing about the HMH gingerbread house from 2010, and they speculated that it was quickly taken down for "legal reasons." It was taken down so fast that some of the CMs who work in the restaurant didn't even know it had ever been there!

5. The picture of you and Tracy wearing the New Year's hats in front of the PPH tree is great!

6. I can totally relate to the cat allergy! I'm also terribly allergic to cats -- which is a shame, as I love animals. Are your allergies to the point where you could just be standing in a room -- even post-vacuuming -- where a cat had been at one point and still have a reaction? A lot of friends of mine have never understood why I couldn't go to their houses because I was allergic to their cats. They figured that since they were not allergic, neither was I! Or they figured that I would sneeze once and that would be the end of it. Wrong! Cat hair can find its way to an allergic person standing two rooms away if it wants to find them, and those allergies can get wicked!





You and Tracy should join us in the Disneyland at Christmas Time/Holiday Season Superthread at some point (on the main DL forum) -- especially when we start the (3 Month) Theme Week Countdown in August. I think you both would enjoy it because you love Christmas and you love Disneyland! Cheshirecatty and Pesky post there too!

We walked to the back of the restaurant and found what we were looking for—the pretzel spinner! Unfortunately, all the pretzels in there looked like they were hours old. I may have poked one to confirm my suspicions. Tracy reprimanded me later, saying that I probably could have found a more hygienic way to figure out that the pretzels were stale. The point, however, is that these were not the Mickey pretzels we were looking for. We wanted a fresh one. So I went up to the cast member at the register and asked if they could make a fresh batch. Since we were literally the only ones in the whole place, she quickly obliged and asked the kitchen staff to start working on some new pretzels.

We waited for a few minutes while our pretzel got heated up. Here’s the (now empty) spinner after the cast member threw away the old pretzels.



Finally, out our treat came. It was piping hot, and we had to wait for it to cool for several minutes before digging in. Of course, we got the requisite side of nacho cheese to dip it in.



To say this was a glorious snack would be a gross understatement. At the time, we were swearing it was the best possible thing we could imagine eating. Disney food does that to you, and we had been deprived of this kind of snack for far too long. We gobbled down our pretzel and then didn’t stay too much longer at Downtown Disney.

We also discovered this cool thrift store near us that is run by two of the people on the show Storage Wars. We had never seen the show, and then we happened to catch an episode about a week before we accidentally found this place.



On our first visit, the display that caught our eyes most quickly was several Disney pins priced very reasonably (about $3 each). This was obviously a collection that someone had prided themselves on at some point. We jumped at these really cool Autopia driver’s license pins as well as this cool Minnie nametag cast member pin. We later looked them up on eBay to see if we had made some good finds and they were selling for over $50 each. Not that we were looking to sell. We just thought they were really cool, and they cost us less than $10 total.



These were actually the last few days of maintaining the routine to which we had become accustomed. The times, they were a-changin’ starting the very next week.
Those Mickey pretzels look so yummy!

I have watched Storage Wars and I think you went to the thrift store run by the married couple? Atleast one of the other bidders on the show also has a thrift store, but they just show the men. There is only one couple on the CA version. I would love to poke around that shop and hear them arguing!

Ummmmm I had just seen season 3 come onto Netflix, but I didn't know season 4 was starting on TV!!! So literally after I ready your post, I ran downstairs and looked it up on my Tivo. I missed the first ep, but the are re-running it before next weeks new one, so I'm glad you said something! And I'm slowly getting through season 3 right now, woo hoo!!


LOVE the Stupey Doodle cup, I laughed when you posted the picture. And that Mickey pretzel looks super yummy, it's making me crave Disney food just looking at it!

And way to go with celebrating Tracy's b-day all month, in my family we call it a "birthday season" and it goes from when you start celebrating to when you stop. Could be days, could be weeks, or at Disney, could be all month!!! Happy belated birthday to Tracy!

Hope the anticipation hasn't been keeping you up nights!

We would be the same way with Friday Night Lights. We don't care about football (we'll watch the Super Bowl each year, and that's about it), but we always like a show with good characters.

We were SO happy with our pin finds! We wanted to buy more from the thrift store, but at the time we couldn't really justify spending much more than our $10, and we definitely got the best ones.

The pretzel was just delicious. We were so glad we had wandered back there on a whim to discover White Water Snacks!

We still don't have a good picture up, though our Stupey Doodle calendar still gives us glee each time we look at it. Now we want to order one of those big canvas prints and hang it above the TV.

They were definitely a good find. And we didn't even go into the shop expecting anything related to Disney! Alas, the changes are a little boring in comparison to everything else we had been up to, but we had to pay the bills somehow...

We were really glad the CM didn't mind making fresh pretzels. I'm sure it helped that we were the only ones in the restaurant...

I think a lot of things about the weather surprised me. I didn't realize we would have defined seasons at all, but they're definitely there (even if the temps don't vary THAT much).

I can't recommend heading to Downtown Disney during the holidays highly enough! It was such a great way to get our Disney/Christmas fill when we couldn't be in the parks. They just do such a great job with all the decorations.

The thrift store is called Now & Then, and it's located at 810 N Tustin St in Orange. We went back recently to see if there were any more pins, but they had all been sold They DID have some other really cool Disney memorabilia, however, including someone's whole collection of old Mickey Mouse watches, but everything was a little too expensive for us.

You and Tracy should join us in the Disneyland at Christmas Time/Holiday Season Superthread at some point (on the main DL forum) -- especially when we start the (3 Month) Theme Week Countdown in August. I think you both would enjoy it because you love Christmas and you love Disneyland! Cheshirecatty and Pesky post there too!
1. I think we were a little glad that it got kind of cold. We left the terrible East Coast winters behind because I never want to feel THAT kind of chill again in my life, but I still like having the feeling of seasons a little bit, and I think our seasons were good this year. You can definitely tell a difference between January and June at least.

2. Glad you've been getting a Christmas movie fix this week even if we're still several months away! We haven't ever really watched any Hallmark movies, but I guarantee we'd enjoy them. We'll have to check out a few this year!

3. I don't think I've noticed the ones in Vault 28 or the GC clock. New things to be on the lookout for! We always love spotting Hidden Mickeys!

4. I think we missed the gingerbread neighborhood because by the time we went into White Water Snacks, the decorations were definitely starting to come down. Sounds really cool though! We'll have to check it out this year. That Haunted Mansion gingerbread house sounds awesome!! I wish it could have stayed up. I'm sure there was some sort of copyright issue though... Boo!

5. Thanks

6. My allergies aren't QUITE that bad. I can usually be in houses with cats without too much of a problem, though there have been exceptions where the house just "smells like cat" when it starts to give me issues if I'm there for too long. Luckily I'm also usually fine petting cats as long as I wash my hands immediately afterward. I just start having problems if they try to rub up on me. I agree that it's awful having animal allergies! I would love to have a cat, but it's just really not a good idea...

I'll have to pop over to the Christmas thread. Sounds like a fun place to be!

The pretzel was so good! Just what we were in the mood for.

I'm not 100% sure who the thrift store was run by because I think the people who run it weren't really in the one episode we watched. Google tells me it's Jarrod and Brandi though, if that means anything to you. Unfortunately, it sounds like they're rarely there in person.

Glad that you're in the process of catching up on PLL. It's really good right now!!

Also glad that you liked our Stupey Doodle cup and our Mickey pretzel. We were very happy with both!

Definitely agree about "birthday season!" We love extending celebrations whenever we get the chance!

Happy Belated birthday to Tracy.

That monorail bracelet is just gorgeous! And I love your O'hana bread pudding cake. I'm going to have to try make it.


Congrats on your old new job. It is a regular paycheck and doesn't sound overly taxing. And it is convenient in that you can clock in when you want and clock off when you want. Seems like win-win all round?

Congrats on your old new job. It is a regular paycheck and doesn't sound overly taxing. And it is convenient in that you can clock in when you want and clock off when you want. Seems like win-win all round?
Tracy appreciates the belated birthday wishes. I'm glad you liked the Monorail bracelet and the look of our bread pudding. You should absolutely try to make it sometime!

Thanks for the congrats on the job. It isn't really our situation anymore, but it was good while it lasted, and it helped introduce me to the world of freelancing, which is what I'm doing now. But more on that later.

Thanks for the updates. I love bread pudding and have a fantastically easily yet sublimely delicious recipe if you want one! In fact I made it just the other night with some beautiful brioche which I bought from our local "Good Food & Wine Show". Yum!

I have a theory on your new freelance job ... you are the cats of Disneyland and are actually twittering and blogging on their behalf! Am I right??

Hope you are enjoying your new quasi-pets.
