happy birthday to me..... and arabella?

so... for my birthday weekend brook took me to some gay bars. let me tell you, i have found my place. no bff but me and my robe were quite the hit at one bar and deemed me a nickname and plenty of friends.... then the next day she gave me a kick ass haircut because i've needed one for way too long. then the day of my birthday, yesterday we went to disneyland... it was super cheap because we only had to pay for seth and i was able to use birthday money for it! perfect.

we didnt get to go on a bunch of rides or anything because it was just us and the girls, but i think it was my favorite trip to disneyland ever... and i think you'll see why....


i love how she has no idea what she's about to encounter.




look out disneyland... here comes arabella..





we went STRAIGHT to toontown to meet mickey.







then minnie... which wasn't as big of deal since ara pretty much always likes boys better.. even mickey.



her very first time having cotton candy...
i love the process of deciding whether its good...








YEP, its good.

my most favorite part...
we waited an hour and a half to see princesses..

here's what happened while we waited..




the three that were there were mulan (who freaking cares about her??) sleeping beauty, who checked out seth and had the creepiest eyes we've ever seen..
and
cinderella...




here they were having a very long conversation about arabellas dreams coming true at disneyland.




me and seth were just fighting back tears during this. it was insane. no belle, but i think we were all satisfied with what went on here.


then my tie for favorite event that day...
taking ara on her first ride, which was my favorite ride as a kid.
dumbo.





at the end of it all we told ara she could pick one thing to bring home.

RIGHT when we walked in the store, she chose pluto... we told her we should look around and make sure... we walked and looked and walked and looked... and after all of it...



pluto was the answer.

a girl who knows what she wants. i love it.


it was a beautiful day.

Cute! I'm so glad that you got to do something super cool on your bday. Nothing is better than seeing your babes super excited and happy. Looks like you guys had a really good day. I love the pics of Ara eating that cotton candy. She was so surprised! Love you guys. And cool that after Disneyland you didn't have to drive for hours and hours to get home.

This is outrageously cute.
I almost teared up too looking at her hug Cinderella!!! I felt the SAME way when Sera did that.

Soooooo sweet.

this made me super stoked because we are going Friday and I'm not a huge theme park person but I'm excited to see Benji's expressions and smiles. Seriously this gave me goosebumps...I can't wait. I'm jealous about the princesses....I'm sure Benji won't care as much.

cats outta the bag... it seems you didn't just make friends you got real friendly with some old ones as well. How'd it feel to go to the happiest place on earth with your fam after you did what you did?? seems as though you can really fake a smile can't you....what a sociopath do you have any remorse? or a conscience for that matter? maybe you shoulda visited jimmy the cricket while you were there...

wow creepo. what happened is between seth and i, although i have no problem admitting to my mistakes and even letting anyone watch and judge how they please. i know we both know you in real life or you wouldn't have known about this and i hope you don't consider yourself a friend of mine or seths because if you do looks like you've missed it. its funny to me when people have such grandeur opinions on my life but don't even have the courage enough to sign their name at the end of their bold statements. you are not a hero for your words, you are a coward.

hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm said...

I'm not trying to be a hero freakshow....and I actually don't know you. And don't get all narsicistic and think I have a grandeur opinion about your life. Just a small one....you suck.

ps. It's funny to me that you think your so damn honest.

skylana said...

well thanks for signing your name tom. i can at least respect that you will back what you have said. you can have all the opinions you want of me, i do not mind. i know exactly who i am, and clearly you have no idea. you thinking i'm not honest just proves the very fact that you have no clue what you're talking about. making judgments on things you in reality have no idea about is foolish.

you obviously do have very strong opinions on my life or you wouldn't be here commenting about it, you wouldn't care.

if you think i suck, then dont think about me.

love.

p.s. its jiminy cricket, not jimmy dumbass.

wow, just wow. This makes me insane. I guess subscribing to blog comments can not always lead to awesome, sometimes it leads to crazy.
love you, always.
