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!

Proud To Be A Military Wife.

IMG_3324

Today’s post is inspired by a video my lovely friend Elizabeth posted on her channel talking about “Why She Loves Being A Military Wife”. I have always felt blessed being a military spouse, some people don’t get what being a military spouse is. While it does have amazing benefits, it also comes with crazy sacrifices. I’ll start with the reasons why I love being a military spouse and then I’ll get into not so loving parts.

Getting into the first reason why I love being a military spouse is the amazing benefits we have like 100% insurance and housing. I was able to give birth to our beautiful baby boy without having to worry about medical bills. Housing is another great benefit, we either have the choice to stay on base rent free or rent a home off base and be given extra money to cover the costs. Since, we’ve been married we’ve lived on base and haven’t had a bad experience since, well, home wise… people that’s a different story. Haha.

In addition, to the previous reasons I love being a military wife because, it lets us travel the world. If you have been following me for a while y’all know that we are stationed in Japan. Never in a million years did I think I would ever get to see Japan let alone live here for three years. Not only do we get to see different parts of world, but the most important reason is I’m blessed enough to be a stay at home mom. I get to see my squishy grow and see him learn new things everyday. It is a great blessing to be able to stay home and not be financially struggling. I get to only focus on school and my home, you know make sure my husband and child are fed and has clean underwear. Lol. With my husband being in the military once he reaches eight years of services, he can transfer something that is called the GI bill, which gives Jason the opportunity to go to college and have it all paid for.

To say the least, being a military wife it has given me the amazing blessing of meeting greats friends who now we basically consider our little military family. Even though we are spread in different places and may not talk to each other everyday we know that we are there for each other whenever it is needed. Making friends in the military is super important because, like I said before some people just don’t understand what we go through, not even family can understand as well as another military spouse will. So, thank you to my little military family for always being there for me.

Now, onto the sacrifices we have to make as part as being a military wife. Some people look at our lives as being luxurious and being lucky that we can stay home without having to worry about bills and such. Let me tell you, it gets on my ever lasting nerve when people compare their lives and tell me I am lucky I don’t have to worry about bills and we get paid so well that I can stay home and not worry about things most civilians have to worry about. Yes, it’s true I don’t have to worry about these things and yes, my husband is able to give me a luxury every once in a while, but it ain’t all rainbows and butterflies I’ll tell you that. I hate the fact that people only see the good things but, never seem to think or see the sacrifices. One of them being, my husband is not always with us, he can be gone for days, weeks, or even months at a time. It is not always for sure he will be home on time to say goodnight to our child. Being in the military us, wives, need to get used to the words “I Don’t Know” nothing is ever for sure in the military. My husband could be called out to war in a second and there’s nothing I can do. The people who think the pay is so great, don’t think about when my husband comes home late he doesn’t get paid overtime. He can be gone from 5am to 10pm, that’s way past an 8 hour day.

Although, we get to live in different parts of the world, it is a struggle to be so far away from family. Only being able to face time, not being able to be with family on the holidays. Many families have to deal with family members being deployed. Heck, I don’t even know if my husband will be here for Christmas. Like I said we have to get used to the words “I Don’t Know”.

Nevertheless, I love being a military wife, it is a great honor to stand next to a man in uniform who is serving our country. This isn’t a life many can handle but, I wouldn’t want it any other way.

Christmas, Love, Marriage, Mommy and Me, Shopping

Family Funday.

Today was a fun day for the Boucha family. We went on a little trip to Hiroshima, it is about an hour away from where we live. We have gone to Hiroshima before, but today we went to this gigantic Japanese mall. I mean it was huge! It was three stories high, they had the cutest shops. I was obsessed. If only I could fit in their clothes. But that did not stop me from doing a little shopping. Most of the shops were having a sale, I could not pass that up. I bought four cute snow globe ornaments. I love snow globes, I think they are so magical. There was no way I could not buy these adorable ornaments. I also bought a mug with the initials “Y” on it. I was never lucky on finding my initials back in the states, but in Japan I find them everywhere. Yay! There was this sponge shaped like a popsicle, it was perfect to wash Jason’s sippy cups. Lastly, I bought the cutest spoon and stirrer for my mother in law. As soon as I saw it I told my husband, “mama law would love that.” She loves butterflies, so now when she comes to Japan her coffee will look pretty. Not only did they have the cutest shops, but they a lot of delicious food. We had a hard time deciding what to eat. We finally chose to eat chinese food. I had spicy rice with chicken, it was delicious. For dessert we went to a Hawaiian themed restaurant. We ate a shaved chocolate and banana pancakes. So yummy. Jason enjoyed them a lot. It was an overall great family day. Hope you all will keep up with my blogs and follow our little adventures in Japan.

Love, Marriage

My Hero. My Marine. My Soulmate.

Like many people in this world, I make mistakes. No one is perfect, especially me. I am not the perfect wife, the perfect mom, or a perfect person. I do not regret my mistakes I made in the past because in that moment it felt like the right decision. I view my mistakes as a lesson to learn from. Before I met my amazing husband whom I am married to now, I was married to a guy that did not show me the love I deserved. At a very young age I was blinded by love and jumped into a marriage for all the wrong reasons. I gave my all and never got the same affection in return. An accident had to happen in order for me to open my eyes and realize that this marriage was not a marriage I wanted to be in. I know that sounds awful, but there comes a time where you have to know your worth. Even after my accident I was still the one to blame, I was never right, and I was never a priority. This is not what a marriage is supposed to be. That day I packed my bags, called my parents to pick me up and left. As I sat in my room that day crying and saying to myself “why is this happening to me?” and realizing I had to end my marriage, something I never thought I would have to do. I knew I deserved more; this mistake taught me that I was worthy of love, deserved to be treated differently, and be loved the same way I love. Even though my marriage was falling apart I had to try to work on it, yet I was the only one willing to work on it. After my divorce I swore off love or the idea of being with someone and letting them in. My husband came into my life unexpectedly, never in a million years did expect this amazing human being to come into my life. He gave me the ability to love again. He made me feel safe and beautiful the first day I met him, it was the weirdest, most amazing feeling ever. A feeling that I never felt before, EVER! He became my best friend, my hero, and my soul mate. This sign is above our bed, with one of my favorite verses from the bible. This verse means so much to me because I would pray to God to send me a man who would love me and make me feel like the princess I am, and God answered my prayers and sent me my soul mate. I hope this helps anyone who is in a bad relationship and feel unappreciated realize that you are worthy of love and that love is out there. Do not settle for anything less. I am now happily married with a beautiful baby boy and I would not trade it for anything in the world.
