Hubs Bday!

Hi Friends! Happy Thursday, this week has been NON stop for us! My Hubs birthday was this week, we had doctors, dental, and vet appointments (Riley has some skin issues) UGH! It’s been exhausting. So we’re taking it easy tonight (KFC for dinner, PLEASE don’t judge!HA) and hot chocolate and cheesy hallmark movies is what we’re doing for self-care!

Anyways, Hubs wanted sushi for his bday dinner so we went to our neighborhood sushi place.

Happy Birthday Ga!

Randomness this week:

I’m still enjoying our thanksgiving flowers (daisies and dried hydrangeas).

A cute welcome note for BOO!HA

Grandma got her a mickey night gown! so adorable:)
Grandma baked us a carrot cake for our bday! YUM! so moist…the best carrot cake ever!

Have a great night friends!

Thanksgiving 2018!

Hi Friends! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your loved ones. We have always hosted Thanksgiving since my In laws downsized their house. It’s OK with me because we do potluck style, so all of the responsibilities are shared. We enjoyed our traditional Thanksgiving food (turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, green beans casserole). I’m so thankful for all the blessings the Lord has given me this year. Thank You Jesus. We’ve had a busy Thanksgiving weekend, we went to Seattle and decorated out Christmas tree. I will post more of that this week. Have a good week Friends!

Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours!

Happy Birthday!

Hi Friends! I had my birthday last week and to celebrate my Hubs and I went to John Howie (my personal fave steak house in WA). Thanks to my In laws for watching the Boobear. Hubs bday is 10 days after mine,so we usually have a combine bday celebrations/gifts. They gifted us a John Howie certificate so we used that. We decided that we will not give each other birthday gifts this year. We really don’t need anything right now and we are saving for my car that we plan to pay for with cash:) I did get my free birthday drink from Starbucks earlier that day! YUM! I got their hot chocolate:)

I’ve tried the Japanese wagyu before and I personally don’t like it, it’s like eating butter in my opinion!HA

We we’re already too full and decided to skip dessert! Thanks to my family and friends for all of the birthday wishes. I’m so grateful for what the Lord has done for me this past year. Have a blessed week friends! Happy Thanksgiving:)

Appetito Craft Pizza and Wine Bar!

Hi Friends! I wanted to share another restaurant we tried while we were in Waikiki. Appetito is so convenient for us because this restaurant was located in our hotel. After a long day at the beach we wanted to just have a relaxing night, where we don’t have to go far from our hotel. We really enjoyed the place, we had Pizza (what they are known for) and it was really good. I totally enjoyed the Prosciutto Pizza. Prosciutto is one of my favorite cuts of meat so no surprise there! The Hubs dug their pasta, it was a lobster bolognese or something. If you’re in Waikiki, I recommend Appetito and you gotta try their Spicy meatballs and burrata Caprese salad too.  As if we still needed food to eat, we decided to get dessert at Leonards and get their famous malasadas. Thanks to my brother In law who recommended them to us.

Prosciutto Heaven!


Have a great day Friends!

Weekend Fun!

Hi Friends! How’s your Saturday? Hubs baked some Pumpkin cream cheese swirl muffins. They are really good!  I will probably post the recipe this week. I’ve been nagging him to take our Christmas tree out of the garage because I wan’t to decorate already:) We’ll have simple decorations this year because thinking about the cleanup after the holidays are giving me anxiety already!HA!

So good and very moist!

I’m on a hunt for a new car! We started car shopping 2 months ago, no plans to buy a car right now (I’m thinking early next year) but it’s good to see what cars I might like out there.

Twinning with my Boo!
Car shopping with Boo

We went to Dickys BBQ after we checked cars. YUM!

Car shopping can be exhausting! She has to have her nap:)

Have a great weekend friends! About to watch Hallmark Christmas movies now while my Hubs is making our hot chocolate! He’s the best:)

Our Halloween!

Hi Friends! I hope you had a fun Halloween and that you got to enjoy some treats. I personally do not participate or do something big during Halloween, we do buy candies for the trick or treaters in our neighborhood. Since we have Mia now, we joined the craziness of the holiday:) I got her a Snow White dress because we’ve been watching some Disney shows lately and she really enjoys them.

We attended my husband’s Office party too!  It was so much fun to see the other kids dressed up, but Mia didn’t win the toddler contest! Next time Boo:)

My In-law’s joined us for our neighborhood trick or treats, we were blown away with all of the creative decorations. Some of our neighbors went all out!

We didn’t go to a pumpkin patch this year, so we got our pumpkins at our local grocery:( HA! My hubs did amazing carving pumpkins this year. Good job Ga!

My In laws brought bbq for dinner before went out to trick or treat! My MIL got too many bundt cakes! It was good though.

Off to get some candies:)

What a fun and tiring day! She had a good sleep after enjoying her treats:)
