Back Home Again in Indiana

Back Home Again in Indiana

Today I have decided I need to just relax and do whatever I want to do.  (If I did what I need to do I would be cleaning the toilet. Ew)  Lately I’ve been going 100 miles an hour and then I’ll crash.  Like 3 hour naps, then watch Game of Thrones then back to … Continue reading

Boy or Girl?

Boy or Girl?

Chris is 100% sure it is a boy.  I’ve been just ga-ga over little boy sweater vests and bow ties.  But although my husband says he just has a feeling that it is a boy, we decided to do some gender predicting tests. BUT FIRST!  I have the videos from our homecoming to Indianapolis airport … Continue reading

Tin Roof Rusted!

Tin Roof Rusted!

Only one line showed up on the test we took on that Thursday.  And to be honest, I was devastated.  But it is going to happen when it is supposed to, right?  But on Monday I thought, well, we have another test here so why not try again.  Maybe I took the last one too … Continue reading

The Almost Snow Monkey Experience

The Disappearing Mt Fuji and Onsen

So there I was standing completely naked with four Japanese women holding a towel just slightly bigger than a hand towel.  Two of the women were our friends Kayoko and Michiko.  Apryl wasn’t able to get in the onsen since pregnant women are not supposed to soak in such hot temperatures.  (Although Japanese women still … Continue reading

Tales From the Trip

Tales From the Trip

Last night I got naked and soaked in a natural hot spring with a bunch of Japanese women.  How’s that for an opening line in a blog post?  Now that I have shocked half of you, intrigued a few and caused at least 3 of my relatives to pass out… let me catch you up on a … Continue reading

A Vlog Recap – Japan is awesome

A Vlog Recap – Japan is awesome

Words cannot describe how amazing Japan is.  I haven’t really had any time to blog because we have been so busy.  We have two DSLR cameras and the new Nikon my parents got us for Christmas so you can imagine  the amount of photos we have to sort through.  So I thought I would take … Continue reading

Our Arrival to Japan and 2012!

Our Arrival to Japan and 2012!

I’m writing to you with a belly full of traditional Japanese New Year’s foods and a sake induced headache.  The past few days have been full of meeting new people, trying new foods and learning about a culture that is fascinating and very different from our own. When Chris and I boarded China Airlines I … Continue reading
