My hubby and I have been on kind of winning streak this past year. I'm sure at some point the streak will end, but until then we're just going to sit back and enjoy anything that gets sent our way.
On Sunday, March 20th, we attended a Pacific Northwest Mini Mouse Meet. These are put together by a group of Disney enthusiasts to provide a time where we can all get our Disney geek on without feeling self-conscious.
This particular meet was held at Pogacha Restaurant in Issaquah, Washinton, and included a nice lunch with unlimited soda, lemonade, and iced tea. I had a vegetarian sandwich with pesto, fresh mozzarella, and tomato. It was delicious. I also enjoyed a side of salad and a little of penne pasta in a white sauce.
I'm still getting used to taking pictures for my blog, so I failed at getting pictures of the food.
Everyone that attended received at the door a small plastic Disney-themed Easter egg with candy inside and a Disneyland 60th Anniversary trading pin.
Oftentimes, they also have drawings for some door prizes. The door prizes on this particular day included scented candles with scents such as Haunted Mansion, churro, and Main Street Bakery. There was also a pin set given out, although I don't remember exactly what the theme of the pins were. The "grand prize" was an original pencil drawing by Disney animator Eric Goldberg. It was a drawing of Genie from the movie "Aladdin". I've included a picture of it below:
This will be added to our wall of Disney art in our family room this week.
We sat at a great table and made some new friends. One of the reasons we love these events are the wonderful friends we make and the fact that they understand our Disney-geekishness. (I know. I know. That's not a word...yet.)
Also announced were the speakers for the 8th Annual Pacific Northwest Mouse Meet which will be held in July at the Lynnwood Convention Center. Speakers will include Disney legends Bob Gurr, Marty Sklar, and current Disney artist and historian Stacia Martin. We've already bought our tickets and are counting down the days.
Hopefully, up next time, will be my review of the movie "Zootopia" as well as updates on a few projects I've been working on.
