Bits and Baubles

I am finally back in the blogging world! I was out for a while due to school, but now that school is out tomorrow, I am free to start blogging again for the summer!

There are a few things that I wanted to share with you that have happened over the course of the time that I've been away.

For one, I turned 17 on May 7. And it was the best birthday ever.

Firstly, I got this honey bear from my little brother: 

In addition to him, I received Mary Poppins on DVD, Snow White pjs, and 
Disneyland Tickets

Disneyland here we come! My family and I and my best friend are all coming along! That means I must get busy! I have a 6-hour playlist of Disney songs for the drive up to compose!

I also received an iPhone.

I could not believe it. My reaction was probably priceless. We have it on video.

I have not asked for iPhone or even remotely considered the possibility that I might receive one.

For 3 years I had lived with my dinky little phone with its limited capabilities, and that phone was about to end its life span. But I always thought that I would just get a small something to replace it, not an iPHONE!

Already I cannot imagine myself without it--pathetic and sad, but true. How did I survive all that time with my simple non-smart phone Pantech???

Beats me.

Also, we went to Universal Studios and the Hard Rock Cafe in a limo for my cousins' graduation. 

That chandelier below is made out of saxophones, and since my brother plays the saxophone, I had to take a picture of it.

It was wonderful :)) 

Can't wait for the Mad Tea Party, either! I have such major plans for that event, I cannot even tell you. My best friend and I will be planning it out together and throwing it at her house, because she has a perfect backyard for the event. I simply cannot wait! We have been discussing this since Christmas! If it doesn't live up to our expectations, I am going to be so disappointed.

Here's a little idea of what I think it should look like, on a miniature scale. (I actually had to set up this setting for a photography project called Mini Me, in which you had to use Photoshop to shrink yourself down to size to fit multiple times in the setting of the photo. I made myself walk across the teacups, hang from the clock hand, get trapped in a jar, and hold a key whilst balancing atop the Mad Hatter hat.) 

Do you have anything good planned for the Mad Tea Party? Do tell!!!

Until next time, ma poupées!

P.S. I have been really obsessed with Marie Antoinette fashion lately. That is what inspired the banner of my blog (the picture inside is one that I took. I'm going to try and only post pictures that I take from now on, instead of ones from the Internet.) 

P.S.S. Here is a pic of the knapsack I'm going to bring to Disneyland!

You had best resign yourself to much Disney chatter over the next couple of weeks.



  1. Oh Jessica! Cute little honey bear ;) I love love love your pictures. And your excitement! And I WANT SNOW WHITE PJ'S!!!! Happy belated birthday! I remember last year (was it last year or the year before?) we made each other art! I still have that Alice piece and it is proudly displayed on my wall, I love it so!

  2. Thanks Jenn! I know, Disney pjs are the best! I think our gift exchange might have been last year...but for some reason the years are blurring together at the edges and I can't remember! I still have the gifts that you gave me and I love them so much! Can't wait for the Mad Tea Party chatter to increase to hype and then full on OBSESSION. I get a little...too enthusiastic about these things!

    Talk to you soon, doll!
