Hey everyone!

I know I just posted an update a few days ago (and if you haven't read it, go do that now because it's a goodie), but I just wanted to let you know that we are leaving for Disneyland TOMORROW MORNING!!

It definitely snuck up on us after our crappy/stressful week last week, and I feel slightly overwhelmed because we have stuff we need to get done before we leave, last minute packing, etc... but in the end, we'll be in Disneyland at this time tomorrow for a longer time that we were last year, SO HOORAY!

We'll be staying at the Villas at Grand Californian for 4 nights, and we're both BEYOND excited that we'll get to experience Disneyland while staying on-property at such a beautiful resort.

Obviously, I won't be responding to TR comments until we're back, and same with updates, you'll have to hang tight and wait until next week.

But don't worry, I have lots of updates already written and waiting to be posted, so I won't make you wait too long!

BUT like I mentioned before, if you really want to see what we're up to in Disneyland, you can follow me on twitter (dani_maroo) or instagram (dmags), as I'm sure I'll be posting lots of photos/tweets while we're there.

So with that, I will talk to you guys next week because...

Have a fabulous time in DL!!!! Glad you are able to escape your terrible/stressful week.

Finally caught up on your last 2 updates. Yeah!!! Now I just have to wait till you get back and watch for the next ones.

First off glad Matt's mom is okay. Scary that she had those complications but glad everything worked out.

How awesome to finally get to meet up with Jenn and her family. I love that you became friends on the DIS and have "known" each other for such a long time but finally got to meet face to face. Great picture of you and Jenn together.

I have never eaten ice cream at Ghiradelli but I am going to have to do that this time and have that Gold Rush cause it looks delicious!!!!!

Awesome that you got to go behind the secret gates in Epcot but how hilarious that you had to be escorted so that you couldn't sneak into the event going on. The Vinylmations that you got for attending the event are really cute, especially Pluto as Scar.

The 3 foot Vinylmation is CRAZY!!!! How cool would it be to have that in the entry way to the house. My DH would not be amused.

Anyway have a fabulous time and look forward to your next update when you get back!!

Oh man, I hate that there were problems with Matt's mom's surgery.

Yay for DTD and Jenn! I can't even handle how cute the photos of this are. I want to hang out with y'all so bad!

I am the same way as Matt with debating all week on purchases. I make mental and physical notes of things I love.

Man, those EPCOT pins are my favorite. I wish I had the whole set because hello, childhood.

Okay, I know the boardwalk melting feeling all too well. The day Anna was sick I parked at Boardwalk, ate at Beaches, walked to Epcot, proceeded to walk to FW, then all the way back to my car. IN LATE APRIL. Pretty sure I looked like a wet dog.

I love that Haunted Mansion bag cause it's one of those things that most people would just think is a nice bag, but Disney fans will get it and geek out when they see you with it. I WANT IT!!!

I'm with you on eating several different foods to make a meal as opposed to one big meal. That's why I love the Food and Wine Festival so much. It's so fun to have a variety.

YAY BASIN!! I'm so happy my recommendation helped you. I'm so crazy about those shampoo bars.

The story about getting recognized from your trip video is SO hilarious. She must have been shocked to see you there at that moment!

The sandwich Matt got at Earl is the one I get every single time at the NYC location. I want to try another one but I'm just in love with it.

This Vinylmation event sounds so awesome! How much was it to get in? Pin trading + Vinyl trading + Villain M&Gs = extremely happy Lia.

You are SO LUCKY to be in Disneyland!! I hope you guys are having a beyond magical time!

Aaaaand we're back from Disneyland! Well, we've really been back since last Sunday, but this week has BONANZA BONKERS! No surprise, since coming back from vacation means lots of catch up at work, PLUS our company threw a huge open house to debut our remodeled office. Soooo I just haven't had ANY time to actually give you guys any updates.

I owe a TON of replies, and I'm planning on getting to them here soon, but I thought in the meantime, I'd actually get an update out for you guys so you wouldn't forget about me or think I forgot about you.

This next week is going to continue to be crazy. Matt and I are hosting Thanksgiving for the first time this year, so we have a ton of food shopping to do tomorrow. Plus we're decorating our house, and his parents' house, oh and did I mentioned that my birthday is on Thanksgiving? Yep, because it is. First time I've had a birthday land on Thanksgiving in a loooong time. So with all of that, I'll try to be around and keep updates flowing, but just bear with me since life is just crazy right now.

OH! And I will be writing a Disneyland TR. We had a fantastic trip, and I got some fabulous photos while we were there. I'm debating on when to start it, since I have a LOT of photos to edit, plus I'm still writing this one and I don't want to overwhelm you guys with two TRs... So I don't know, if anyone has a preference or an opinion on this, please let me know.

And with that, here are some new updates... finishing up Day Three!

Continued in next post
