I had my sister Lisa come this weekend for a visit. We had such a great time just being together. Its always nice to not have anything planned and still have fun. We went shopping for her upcoming trip to Ireland. We cooked and played the Wii and celebrated her birthday. Its really next weekend but since she was here we had her favorite lime cheesecake. Its always hard to have her go back home but I am glad she is close enough to visit. Thanks for coming Lisa it was so much fun! Isn't she so cute and photogenic!

I love Disneyland and since I missed out going last year I wanted to go this year. I am having a milestone birthday this year so what better way to celebrate? My opinion of course I am sure everybody has different ideas:)So I was really excited when Disney put out there usually promotion for the year. They asked what will you celebrate? Give a day of service and get a free ticket to Disneyland! I was really pumped since I enjoy helping others and then they are going to reward me for it?! So I signed up and there were so many opportunities around our community to serve. I chose to make cards for kids who are facing cancer and other life changing illness's. I got a list of the kids and their favorite things. I thought it would be fun to send them a package with a card. So me and my roommate signed up and went today and did our service. It was great and I hope the kids like the things we sent.Its nice to get a fun reward but sometimes its nice to know you made a sick child smile. I know after today's experience that I want to get out and help more. I want to celebrate this year by doing a service of some sort for someone each month. I think thats a good way to celebrate this year dont you?
