April & May

I'm currently working in the same building where Radio Disney is recorded and broadcasted. I heard the likes of Bieber and Selena have been seen around the campus a time or two and was just waiting for the day when a celeb might appear. Well, it happened!

Flo Rida was recording a segment for Radio Disney. Once we got wind of it, my coworker and I may have waited outside the studio for a good 20 minutes so we could catch Flo on his way out. Totally worth it.

Fangirling so hard and I only know one of his songs.

A few weeks later, we walked into the lobby and spotted these two. I didn't know who they were, but when you see strange people hovering about our tiny reception area, you assume they might be famous. The lady to my left called it, they're from Pentatonix.

Was feeling a bit crafty and made a couple canvas paintings. 
A bible verse,

and Cinderella quote.

My brother graduated college! Perfect grades, pitcher on baseball team, double major, just landed his dream full time job, AND his team made it to the World Championship. The Lord's blessings are overflowing. So happy for this guy. 

Happy faces headed to Disneyland.

It was dapper day so we wore "dapper" attire. We're not sure what that means exactly, because some people were dressed as if they lived in the haunted mansion. But most people were styling 40's and 50's fashion. You can even spot some in the background.

I'm so excited for June and the beginning of summer. These two friends and I have some exciting vacation plans. We've been waiting since February and it's finally here!

January to March

April already? Where has the first quarter gone? Apparently I now measure time in quarters.

The past few months have been filled with fun, little moments. 

Back in January, I kicked off the new year with family and our traditional Japanese feast. Can you tell we love sushi?

We also attended the annual Rose Parade in Pasadena! Here we are all bundled up and trying not to freeze. 

My favorite part of the parade was The Bachelor float (hello dreamy Ben Higgins!), the Disney float, and the marching bands. Shout out to them for walking the entire route in unison, carrying those heavy instruments, and keeping the tune. Seriously impressive.

Our first Disney visit of the year! 

How cute is this mickey pretzel? Our first time having one.

For a volunteer event at work, we had the chance to participate in a Habitat for Humanity build. We scattered new grass seed at a preschool and helped plaster a retaining wall. 

I've always wanted to participate in a build and loved this opportunity. But I also learned I'm not cut out for construction #toomessy #tooheavy. I'll stick to my office job.

Disney round #2 of the year!

And later that month, Disney round #3. Pretend I'm holding up 3 fingers.

Some coworkers and I headed down to Disneyland one evening for a moonlight madness event that's held for cast members. We completed puzzles and trivia throughout the park until 2 am! It was so much fun, even if we came in 300th-something place, haha.

The park is still magical at night.

In March, one of my friends from college got married. She made a truly gorgeous bride. 
 Everyone in this picture spent a semester together in Israel 3 years ago.

Photo booth fun and carpool buddies who were late to the wedding because we entered the wrong address into our navigation and ended up on a dirt road!

Happy birthday Mom! Hope you enjoyed your 6-tier mini cake :).

Also notable, but no picture to prove it...in March, I joined a gym and have been going consistently for a couple weeks now. It feels great to be in a routine of burning calories and getting in shape! Having a faithful gym buddy definitely helps too.

That wraps up the first quarter. Onto spring!
