Approaching the Final Countdown!

Final Stretch…

3.5 Hours
3rd Tank of Gas
115 miles
5 Mickeys

I left work around 4:30 p.m. today. When I was driving down Katella, I saw an All Star Mickey at The Grove of Anaheim and pulled in to take picture. I think this statue may be one of my favorites!  I took the long way home so I could stop by the Village of Orange shopping center where I found a puppy I wanted to buy at the pet store, but figured that may be a bad idea, and then I came across the Texas Ranger All Star Mickey. Jackpot!

This adventure has really been good for me! Usually, I only drive 8 non-highway miles to work and then back every day. I have seen so much of the OC in the past 5 days, I feel like I am on top of the world!

I headed home to eat some dinner, put on comfy shoes and grab my husband’s Fast Trak, because I was on my way to Rancho Cucamonga! I have never been to the “IE” before, in fact, today was the day I learned what “IE” stood for – Inland Empire. After being in LA for the past two evenings, it was a weird feeling to be going 65 mph on the highway for so long. When I arrived at Victoria Gardens, my eyes about fell out of my head. This shopping center is … incredible! I found the Washington Nationals Mickey near guest services and as much as I wanted to explore, I hopped in my car to drive 40 miles back to the OC. This was a BIG moment for me, because the Nationals Mickey statue was #30 on my adventure!

Next stop tonight was Disneyland! I had already found two Mickey statues on Saturday, and today I found two more: St. Louis Cardinals and an All-Star Game Mickey statue! As I was walking through Downtown Disney and back to my car, the fireworks began. This was the perfect ending to my night!

So, our wedding anniversary is this Saturday, June 12th! I found out today that traditionally, the 1st Wedding Anniversary gift you give to your spouse is Paper. I can’t think of anything more ideal for Trent and I, then All Star Game tickets! (printed on paper)
