A Few of My Favorite Things

How is December right around the corner already? Not sure if I'm quite ready for winter weather, but bring on the peppermint mochas and twinkle lights!

I'm pretty certain my wish list looks much like all the others out there, but in case you're at a loss for ideas, here's some of mine.

Linking up with April, Elise, Katie, & Zelle!

Hunger Games Cupcake Toppers

Who's excited for the Hunger Games: Mockingjay coming out this Friday?!

In anticipation of the movie, I've whipped up these new cupcake toppers for the etsy shop.

Little mockingjay cupcake toppers!
or brownie toppers in this case ;)

Wouldn't they make the prefect addition to a pre-movie get together or a hunger games themed party?

Backstage Disney

Another Disneyland post? I just can't help myself.

Our "team-building" day for this year was held at Disneyland / California Adventure. It was loads of fun! I still can't believe that I got paid to go to Disneyland.

First, we headed backstage to tour the stables. Sadly, no pictures were allowed, so you'll just have to believe me that behind toon town live at least five horses, some goats, and a turkey. The horses are the ones that travel along main street for events and parades.

After the tour, we ventured to the parks. Our challenge was to see which team could ride the most rides before lunch. I think our team may have come in last place, but we did get stuck on the top of Goofy's Sky School, so that has to count for something, right? The view from up there was awesome. Walking down the roller coaster was significantly less awesome and a little bit terrifying. The ledge only had a railing on one side!
Stuck at the top of the coaster.
For lunch we ate at Carthay's Circle. The restaurant is modeled after a theater and is pretty fancy, especially for a theme park restaurant. Their cheesy fried biscuits are amazing and so is their wildberry lemonade.
Can all work days be like this?
