New Years Goals!

Hello Beautifuls! Happy New Year’s to all of you beauties. I hope you all had an amazing time ringing in the New Year with family and friends. We kept it really simple at the Boucha home, we went out to dinner and were home by 9pm, it was a wild night. I was able to call my mom from the future, which was pretty funny and so weird that I was already in the year 2019 and my parents where waking up on New Years Eve. Since, we were so “wild” we went on a little adventure and took Jason ice skating for the first time. It was about the cutest thing I have ever seen. Before, getting on the ice he spotted a little train and it was the first thing he wanted to ride. He has a little obsession with trains or as he calls them “choochoo”, he had his money ready for his train fare and everything. Jason didn’t do much skating due to him going all limp noodle when he was put on the ice so, daddy did much of the skating and pushing him around. I stood on the sidelines and took as many pictures and videos as I could and I didn’t trust myself on the ice with my squishy or trust my husband to get good pictures. Needless to say, we all had a great time and made some awesome memories with my little family. Look how cute my little squishy looked all geared up for the ice.

Now, onto a little rewind of my goals last year and my new goals for this year. In the year 2018, I felt like I accomplished a lot of the goals I set for myself. Last year, I wanted to revamp my wardrobe and I actually did it. Living in Japan, most of the women are so well put together so, I felt inspired to step up my game. I also set a goal for my education, and I’m getting closer to finishing my certification course. Last year, I put up some items I wanted to get and I am so grateful that I achieved getting all of the items I wanted. One of the biggest goal I had last year was going home and seeing my family. Although, I accomplished some of my goals 2018 through in some surprises my way but, who doesn’t like surprises.

My 2019 goals have little less materialistic and more travel and working on myself. This year my main goal is going to Tokyo Disneyland, even if all my other goals don’t happen, going to Tokyo Disneyland will make 2019 an amazing year. Along, with going to Disneyland, I would like to travel to different places in Japan. One of the places that we are for sure going to this year is Okinawa, to see the beautiful beaches and spend time with our friends. In 2019, I would like to lose a few pounds, I’m not trying to be a Victoria Secret model or anything, I would just like to go back to pre baby weight. I want to work on reading more books and watching less Netflix, I want to be the example for my son and at the age he is at right now he copies everything mommy and daddy does. I’m hoping I will be able to potty train my toddler this year, so this can go one or two ways I either go crazy by the end or I’m one happy mama and I have a potty trained toddler. Sooooo, wish me luck! Finally, I would LOVE to reach 100 followers or more here on my blog by the end of the year.

What We Got For Christmas.

img_4217

Hello Beautifuls! I hope you all had a great Christmas with friends and family. We had a great Christmas Eve with our friends. This is our second Christmas in Japan, for some reason this year it hit me super hard that I was not with my family. To be honest, im still a little down, but I have to push through and just think that we just have a year and a few months left. Thank God I had amazing friends that came over to celebrate this holiday with. My friend I call my nugget bestie and her husband came over and we had a great time. This was our first time ever doing a Christmas dinner, I think for it being our first time cooking a big meal, we kinda nailed it.

So, let me start of by saying I’m not a cook or baker by any means. Now, y’all may think mashed potatoes aren’t that hard to make but, for someone that has never done homemade anything, it was a big deal for me and may I add they came out super yummy. The other thing I made were Texas sheet cake cookies, I got the recipe from Pinterest! The fact that it didn’t turn into a Pinterest fail is huge and they came out super yummy. Another, Pinterest recipe I saw and managed to not mess it up was making a crockpot creamy hot cocoa, best hot cocoa I have ever tasted. It was a proud moment for me and it gave me a little bit of confidence in the kitchen. My husband also threw it down in the kitchen he made a delicious prime rib roast, a cheese cornbread casserole, and some peanut butter balls. Overall, it was a great time and very blessed to have been able to celebrate this holiday with my little family and friends.

 

 

 

 

Now, onto what we got for Christmas, we will start with the person that got all of the gifts under my tiny tree, my squishy face.  He sure got spoiled by my parents this year, they got him a power wheel Silverado, shoes, clothes, and some learning toys. Santa brought him cars, Lighting McQueen stuff, more clothes, and t-ball gear. We tried to not get him useless toys they we will be stumbling on in two days. My aunt also sent him some more clothes, so you can say he is somewhat set on the clothes. Our fur baby got the biggest bone ever and he sure is enjoying it.

 

This Christmas I didn’t get much, like I mentioned before we are saving up to go to Okinawa to visit our friends. From my hubby I got grey UGGS, from my amazing parents and brothers I got money I’m still debating on what to get, my in laws and Brent’s grandmothers also sent Jason some cash. My friends really out did themselves this year, like omg! My boo boo kitty, send me a Kate Spade tumblr and the cutest necklace ever, it made me cry. My other bestie sent me a gorgeous rose gold Minnie necklace, absolutely gorgeous. My nugget bestie got me cute and dainty Japanese earrings and necklace. My friend and old boss got me the new Gabrielle Chanel perfume, she is the bomb. Finally, my friend Taylor got a cricut and made a cute mason jar with my name. I’m a sucker for mason jars. I treated myself to a cute mug that gives me Henri Bendel vibes and a sparkly Starbucks tumblr. I mean how amazing are my friends, I am beyond blessed to have them in my life. Love you guys soooo much!

It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year.

It came in flash it seems but, the most wonderful time of the year is here! It’s the first day of December and we already had a day full of winter fun. In the afternoon, since my hubby volunteered to be Santa Claus, I went with some friends to the winter market on base and did a little shopping. The winter market is a place where little home shops can be in one place and sell their products. Yes, you read that right, my husband loves dressing up like Santa Claus and surprisingly he doesn’t scare the kids, they actually like him. Haha. Like, I was saying it was a fun time and Jason got to take a picture with Santa aka daddy. We were scared that he would recognize him and pull down his beard and ruin the illusion for the other kids but, he didn’t. Thank goodness.

Later in the evening, we went to the tree lighting event. There were brownies, hot cocoa, delicious apple cider, yummy food, and Christmas music. This was a great experience and to have been surrounded with friends made it so much more fun. It wasn’t the tree lighting at the Rocker Feller but, it was beautiful nonetheless. We made great memories already and it’s just the first day of December, I can only hope there’s more fun to come.

Fall, family, familytime, Zoo

Family Day At The Zoo.

Hello Beautifuls! I hope you guys had a fantastic weekend and have a great Monday. Well, as great as you can make a Monday be so, throw back a cup of good cup of coffee and start your week off strong.

Anyways, my weekend was full of fun and excitement. It has been a while since we had a little adventure in Japan. On Saturday, we went to a sushi go round with some friends, Jason loves some California rolls. In case you don’t know what a sushi go round is, it’s a place where different types of sushi is going around on a belt line and you can pick from the line up. We thought it was going to be super expensive, but to our surprise it was quite affordable for the amount of sushi we ate. It has become a favorite spot for us now, amoung other amazing restuarants we found this weekend. On Sunday, on our way to the zoo we stopped at this Italian place called, Jolly-Pasta, since the hubby was craving some pizza. We ordered a pie of pizza and a plate of pasta to share and after we ordered a slice of apple pie, by far the most yummiest pie I have ever tasted. Everything was absolutely delicious.

Once, we were done stuffing our faces we were ready to walk it off at the zoo. We went to the Hiroshima City Asa Zoological Park, this was the first time Jason has gone to the zoo and boy, was he excited. The animals were quite close, we saw bamboos, rhinos, turtles, lions and the main animal there the Japanese red panda. It was my favorite animal, it was sooo cute! Jason’s favorite animal was the tiger, when he saw it he roared at it and had his little hand like paw. The hubby was excited to see the chimpanzee, he was a little sad that there were no gorillas there. I was so happy that he was having a great time and it made me so much more happier that the hubby was having a blast too.

After, the zoo we were headed home and we starving, we decided to give this little restaurant close to home a chance and I’m so glad we did. It’s called Cusco, a Peruvian restaurant, y’all dont understand how happy I was to have found this place. It had some of my favorite hispanic dishes, I wanted to order the whole menu. I got some fried yuca and beef empanadas for appetizzers and a lomo saltado for dinner. The struggle is real out here without any hispanic food, but this will do for until we go back to the states. We were ready to go home and relax, Jason was so tired that by the time we came home he was looking for jammies and his bed, he was so tired he put himself to sleep.

Overall, it was a great family outting, we haven’t had time between work and school to go out exploring this great land of Japan. I what our little adventure will be next time…
