Happy Face

More exciting than Japan… BRANDON’S COOKING FOR ME. It’s an early birthday celebration =). I’m not allowed to return home until 7:30pm! I also get my birthday present as well hehe. I’ll be spending my actual birthday in DISNEYLAND! I have the Birthday Passport already. Apparently I get a birthday medal, a sticker and a soft toy. You have to pay more for it but yayyyy medal! I hope I don’t whack myself in the face with it on rides.

The countdown continues!

Counting down,
Helen ♥

The Best

I know I don’t say this enough, but Brandon’s the best. For the last 3 nights he’s been giving me foot massages because I’ve been getting pains in my feet from wearing heels. At one point I fell asleep and he kept going =).

What more can you wish for =P. Well I guess less fighting haha, but we’re getting there. Slowly getting into that routine and meeting each others’ expectations.

Dinner tonight at Yaiyai’s!!! So excited. She always makes the yummiest food =D.

What else is there, helping Nathan move, James’ son’s 1 month dinner and JAPAN! We’re so close =).

Ooo I’m also dancing at Sadia’s Pre-Wedding with a few of the girls! It’s so exciting! We have matching sarees (man I did so much research trying to get the right spelling, apparently both saris and sarees its correct @.@. Sari is apparently used more in the US and saree more in India) and everything, even Brandon gets an outfit!

Lunch time! What an intense day so far!

So Close!

Tripit and the counter top the right → (if you’re reading this on the desktop version) is telling me there’s only 2 MONTHS TO GO TILL MY TRIP!!!!

I’m so excited!!! We’ve pretty much got everything planned, train times, JR Pass accommodation and the Ghibli museummmmmmm! Speaking of the JR Pass, we managed to get a great deal and saved $50. We were pretty lucky though cause the prices changed the next day. The only worrying thing about this trip is the exchange rate. AUD is tanking hard =(. But who knows what 2 more months might do.

We’re visiting all the theme parks, Disneyland, DisneySea, Universal Studios and Ocean Park (in Hong Kong).

I cannot wait for the food! It’s making me hungry already haha.

Speaking of food I still need to blog about our little dinner!

Till next time,
Helen ♥

Bus Blogging

2 months and 8 days.
9 weeks and 6 days.
69 days.

That’s three ways to show how long we’ve been living together and we’ve got some pretty good stats:

Deaths: 0
Blown fuse: 1
Broken dinnerware: 1
Forgotten keys: 1
Pressing a neighbour’s intercom to get in: 1
Breaking into our own place: 1
Rain drenched washing: 1
No light in bedroom: 1.5 weeks
Underwear/socks dropped in common areas: 2
Empty tank: 0

I think we should focus on the zero deaths and zero empty tanks for the car. I mean really, those are the most important things =P.

It’s been fun… and tiring. I’m actually really tired night now. There’s never enough hours in a day. We both get home after 6pm then we have to cook, clean and shower then it’s pretty much bed time. Sometimes we try to wake up early for the washing other times we scramble to get out the door.

But we wouldn’t give it up for the world =). It’s really nice having each other there and sharing a home together ♥!

Some quick updates:
– We finally bought a couch, though we won’t get it till October (whooo electric recliners) so we’re still sitting on the bean bags/carpet/floor/cushions.
– We have an amazing quilt cover with matching pillows!!! (those things are expensive). I’ll post photos later.
– We just installed a hat rack in the laundry for our coats and jackets (thanks Dad!!!)
– We purchased a dining table, but we had to return it cause it was faulty and the quality was so-so, but it looked so nice =(.
– We have 2 carpets, a soft high pile one for the bedroom and a beautiful blue one for the living room =D

The new coat of paint made such a difference. When we’ve gotten everything we want I’ll post pictures.

On a completely unrelated note, I CAN’T WAIT FOR JAPAN!

We’re finally kicking off the planning process. Hopefully we’ll have everything booked by the end of August, and then it’ll just be a waiting game. Our trip will be so jam packed but I can’t wait to have no sleep in another country hehe. I only wish Joseph could’ve come =(, at least it sounds like Daniel might. If they don’t we’ll just have to have extra fun their behalf!

I’m on the train now, only two stops till I’m home.

Should probably pay attention so I don’t miss my stop (I’ve already done that once before haha =.=”””).

Till next time,
Helen ♥
