Happy Birthday To My Love!

Hello beautifuls!!! Today’s post is dedicated to my ride or die, my best friend, the love of my life; My Husband! We have been celebrating his birthday all weekend long leading up to his birthday today.

He turned 25 and now he’s as old as me, until I turn 26 in a few months and feel like an old fart all over again. We started of the celebration with going to buy his big gift. I’ve never seen him so gunho about anything our entire marriage. This man is super hard to shop for, he deserves the world but, rather have a sticker type man. So, this year he wanted a kayak and I was so excited I finally had a great gift to get him. Friday night I sorta tricked him into coming to the store with me to get his gift. I’m a tiny person there was no way I would be able to carry and put a kayak on the car. He had no idea he was getting a kayak that day. Let’s just say he was like a little kid that saw a mountain of presents under the tree on Christmas morning. His excitement made me sooo happy.

After, dropping of the kayak, we had to go get him and Jason some life vest but, not any kind of vest, a fisherman vest. Haha. That’s right, my man now is a fisherman or he wants to be. What kind of wife would I be to kill a mans dreams. Hahaha.

Moving onto Saturday morning, I took him to get a pedicure, we use to get them all the time in the states and it has been a while for him. He now says he’s sliding in his boots. After, the pedi, we headed to this restaurant my nail lady recommended. It was a 50s diner and had pretty good American food. Headed to the restaurant and it was the cutest place I’ve been in Japan, restaurant wise. They Marilyn Monroe and Elvis everywhere, a jukebox, and all things 50s. Besides, the amazing 50s aesthetics, the food was delicious. I didn’t even take a picture of how good it was. But, I did take a picture of our yummy dessert. When we were done with our parfait, we headed out to the backyard where they had some tables, a swing, and a pond with koi fish. It was so beautiful and we are definitely going back.

On Sunday we took the kayak for a swim in the lakes of Japan. I stayed on short, due my fear of open waters but, that’s a story for a different time. Both my babies were ready for some kayak fun. They had in their life vests and were off. I thought my toddler would be overboard in a matter of seconds but surprisingly he actually stayed calm and enjoyed the ride. I may have lost my husband for the majority of the weekend but, it’s totally worth it. The happiness on his face was everything.

Monday was a work day so, we didn’t do much. We were pretty tired from our exciting weekend.

Tuesday was his birthday, so after work Jason gave him presents, he got daddy some under armor running shorts and a champion sweatshirt. We then went to dinner at chili’s and stuffed our faces and Jason stole his birthday dessert.

It was an amazing birthday filled with fun and some spoiling. Is there any other way to celebrate a birthday?

Happy Birthday My Love!

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!

Girly Day With Tay.

Hello Beautifuls! Today was a very much-needed girls day. It has been quite a while since I’ve gone out and did a little shopping without a toddler running around or a nagging husband telling me “hurry up”, “why are you taking so long?”. Today we shopped in peace, it was so nice. We stopped for some coffee at Starbucks, did a little shopping at H&M, went to Louis Vuitton for a little treat for the eyes and to reserve a little something I’ve been eyeing for a while, stopped at a little Luxury thrift store, and finished with some lunch. Even though we went to a lot of places, our mission today was Starbucks. Why, you may ask? Because here in Japan, Sakura season is about to start, which is the cherry blossom season. (this honestly is my favorite season).

Starbucks in Japan came out with a Sakura season collection, about the most beautiful collection ever. I don’t know about y’all ,but I love mugs and tumblers, so I had to get my hands on this pretty collection. I mean look how gorgeous and pink everything is. This is totally my type of esthetic.

The next stop was H&M. I just got a couple of things, it’s not like I can fit in a lot of their clothes. H&M already has sizing problems and being in Japan makes it even worse. But, I can still find some cute stuff that I can fit in. The struggle is real! Today, you will see a lot of pink. At H&M I got two shirts, a cardigan, and the cutest beret. Yes, they are in different shades of pink, I did say at the beginning of this year I wanted to add more pink in my wardrobe. The shirt is so comfy, it is supposed to be a shirt dress but my butt and hips do not allow it to be a dress shirt, so I’ll be wearing it with some leggings. The second shirt is flowy and gives me spring vibes, the sleeves are bell sleeves, which adds a little girly and dressy look to it. The cardigan can be used with anything and knowing me it’ll be worn a lot. It is very thin, so it can be worn during the spring without having a heat stroke. Lastly, the blush pink beret, this was something that I was uncertain on buying, but surprisingly was very cute on me.

The last stop was the luxury thrift store. Japan has the best thrift stores ever, especially when it come to finding luxury items. My friend Taylor is the one that opened my eyes to thrifting. I honestly never even stepped foot in a thrift store until I went with Taylor. I know that sounds snobby, but it just wasn’t my thing. Anyways, at this thrift store I got a Louis Vuitton 4 Key holder. I have been wanting this for while, but I always debated on whether I wanted to pay $200 for something my keys were going to scratch and be tossed around. But, I found one that is in great condition for $70! I mean that is a good amount of money being saved that can go towards something else. I was so happy I was able to find this. I know I will not be loosing my keys any more.

Best Juice Bar, Ever!

Let me tell you about the best juice bar I have ever been to. I don’t know what I’m going to do when it is time to go back to the states. It’s so delicious, no other juice bar in the states can compare. I have yet to find another juice bar as good out here in Japan. The first time I went was with my friend that introduced me to this beautiful place. I was hooked. Jason loves this place too. Today, I took my husband for the first time. He was pretty impressed, he was surprised that the actual drink looks like the picture on the menu. This place makes all the smoothies with fresh fruit, on top of being made fresh, they also put whip cream with fresh fruit on top with powdered sugar. SO GOOD! I would’ve never thought to put powdered sugar on fruit, but it’s yummy. The other times I have been to this place, I get a green grape smoothie. This drink is a mixture of sour and sweet. Like, it’ll get you in the back of the throat when you take that first sip. Today, I got a purple grape drink and the hubby got a strawberry drink. The purple grape smoothie was sweet, unlike the green grape one. Both are delicious. The shop itself, is small, like many places in Japan. It is so cute and chic. They are really Instagram ready. They seriously have cute props to make your smoothie look cute for an Instagram picture. I wish everyone could taste these delicious treats. I mean look how amazing these drinks look. What are y’alls  favorite juice bars?
