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!

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.

family, Love, New Year

Adios, 2017!

Holy Moly! Can you believe there is only 1 one day left in 2017. This year has flown by in the blink of an eye. I can not express enough how great 2017 was. Of course, it had some downs, like moving across the world to Japan and leaving our family behind. Eventually, I started to see this was an amazing experience for us, we still can not believe that we are in Japan. God has blessed my little family so much this year. It was full of experiences and adventures. I can only hope 2018 is an even better year for the Boucha’s.

Going into the year 2018, I do not want to say the cliché saying ” New year, new me.” How many times have we heard this dumb saying and nothing happens. This year, I want to continue having adventures and hopefully do some traveling and start creating memories with my little family. One of the things I would really like to do this year is to go to Tokyo Disney. I love Disney and I hope to eventually go to all the Disneyland’s around the world. I hope Jason will enjoy it as much as I am. I am slowly turning him to a Disney fan, but he’s only one and half, he can turn on me. I will probably start to cry from disbelief of being in Tokyo Disney. Also, I want to ring in the new year with some organization.

One of my favorite things to watch on tv is “reality TV”, My favorite show being is Keeping Up With The Kardashians. My favorite of them all is Khloe, she is goals. I watched an old YouTube video of her pantry and giiirrrlll … I became obsessed with it. I began looking on Pintrest and other YouTube videos to get more idea. I finally got my pantry organized. It looks so much better. I have a few more things coming in the mail, but being overseas shipping takes forever and a day. #Overseastruggle. I may do an update once everything has arrived. I started with what I had, it is better than nothing.  I just love how it all turned out, it may not look as good as Khloe’s, but her pantry is the size of a room. I also organized under the kitchen sink where all the cleaning supplies are. ( I have child proof locks, so my rugrat can not get to them.)

I mean look how good it looks. It makes me so happy. My husband said it is turning into an addiction. I do not think it is that bad, I just like how clean and organize everything looks. I still do not know what to do with the cans. If any of you have any ideas please let me know.

I still can not believe this is the last blog post of 2017. I started my blog a few weeks ago, I was going to start it in 2018, but there was no better time than the present. Why wait any longer? Creating my blog has been an amazing experience. I have so much fun coming up with new content. I hope in the new year I will have more followers and more people will enjoy my blogs. To my amazing followers now, thank you so much for your support and I hope you keep enjoying my posts. I hope you all have a great New Years with family and friends.  XOXO.

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.

Christmas

A Very Special Ornament.

As I was placing this ornament on our Christmas tree I could not help but to feel blessed. This ornament has a special meaning to me, it reminds me that I am lucky to have these combat boots lying on my living room floor. I would get so upset and annoyed everytime I tripped over the boots or had to pick them up and put them away. One day as I put the boots away I began to think about those families who have lost love ones fighting for their country. I am very fortunate to have my husband come home every day to play with our son and give me a kiss goodnight. This ornament is a reminder to never take any moments for granted; because at any moment my husband could be gone and those boots will no longer be on my floor but will be on enemy ground. I will always try to be the best wife I can be, to always love and support my husband. These boots are our lives. boots
