ah, 2020. the year where everything and nothing happened. while it really was quite the shitshow once march hit us, i have to admit that there was more good than bad for us this year. we spent a lot more time together as a family, we're all healthy (despite the hub's brush with covid), everyone is happy and we didn't kill each other. ain't that a kick in the pants?
it all started off so well, with one of the bean's last days of winter break spent with friends at the funko pop store in hollywood:
i cashed in a groupon at the spa at the langham hotel in pasadena with lilcee and dailygluttony. little did we know that this would be our last GTG...
we just went about our lives, going out, having fun, just doing...stuff. like the one day that the old lady took me to the lip lab and we made our own lipsticks:
we went down to staples center one night to watch the bean perform with her zumba class during halftime at a clippers game:
we managed a few trips to disneyland. just a few. here, for their lunar new year celebration:
we finally stopped to have our silhouettes done at the little shop on main street.
one morning, the old lady and i headed out extra early to grab boarding passes for the new star wars rise of the resistance ride. and it was that same day that we got to meet up with my good friend weezermonkey, on a very rare visit to the 'land to celebrate her daughter's birthday.
and on what turned out to be our last visit to our happy place in 2020, we enjoyed brunch at la brea bakery and saw their valentine's day decorations.
we got to watch the bean in a handful of cheer competitions.
speaking of the bean, we took her to costco to snap new pictures so we could renew her passport. hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha, yeah.
and with some pretty great timing, i managed to check off one of my bucket list celebrity sightings when the old lady and i ran into john stamos at downtown disney. have mercy.
there were lots of birthday parades, including two for herself.
