Toontown Bound

Okay, so this next one isn’t necessarily a bound, but more of a Disney style ensemble. It takes me back to those days as a kid where I’d go to the parks in a Mickey shirt and a hat and call it a day. This is what I would call a “ride day” outfit, because it’s practical for a whole day of gallivanting around the parks (not that I go on that many rides lol)

Second day, second bound!

Once again I was faced with the challenge of coming up with our winter Disneybounds. Then I realized, when I think winter, I think snow! And just like that, we knew what our second bound was going to be:

Frozen.

Quite literally too. We really were frozen. It was the coldest day of our trip.

But you know, some people are worth melting freezing for, so we strapped on our warmest winter gear and ran around the best park in the world as Elsa, Anna, and Olaf.

Dogs of Disney

My annual birthday trip blog posts are here! In March. Lol.

For those of you who have been following along since last year, yes my birthday is in January. And yes. I am blogging late again. But see, the first two months of the year have been insane. There was Disney, there was my best friend coming home, and there was my students performing in their very first musical. It doesn’t sound like a lot. But it was. My eyebags will tell you so.

Anyway, like my Disney trip with mom, there isn’t much information I can give you that hasn’t already been covered here, so this will be more of a style blog than anything else. But if you have any questions about Tokyo, shoot me a message and I’ll gladly answer them as best as I can.

Planning the outfits and Disneybounds for this trip was quite a challenge. I’d never gone to Disney in the height of winter before, so I couldn’t exactly follow my skirt-and-off-shoulder formula this time.

For our first day in DisneySea, I knew we were heading to the park in the afternoon straight from our flight. So that meant that we had to be extra warm. We were coming in from Manila weather, and I could not afford to get sick, so I thought, what better Disneybound than characters who actually have fur?

5 Things My Kids Taught Me

No, not my biological kids. (I mean, look at them they’re all teenagers, and there are 24 of them lol) But you know, they may as well be my real kids for how much I love them.

I haven’t been a teacher for very long. I’ve taught before, but not like this. Not in this life-changing, soul-changing, heart-changing way.

Some of these kids have been with me for almost two years, some barely one. But in my heart I’ve known them longer. Because I’ve gotten to know them through a very special way: music. I have been given the beautiful opportunity to see them grow into both incredible performers, and wonderful people.
