Its Saturday!


It's Saturday, yee! I'm so glad it's the weekend right now. It's annoying while Jimmy is gone at work. He's all mine this weekend. Things are going really good out here in Japan. I'm so glad that we are together. He did the sweetest thing on Thursday and I'm just now getting to post it. After a long day of work he comes home (I'm upstairs doing something) calls me downstairs and has Popeye's all set out which I was excited about to begin with AND he surprised me with massive pink hippo, roses and the movie despicable me.  Oh and lots of cuddling :)
How sweet is this?!
If you haven't seen despicable me I would totally recommend it. I was completely overwhelmed by the cuteness in that movie so now I'm obsessed. I've made the guys sit down and watch it with me at least three times now BUT the funny part is that they don't object! I named the cutest pink hippo in the whole wide world, Popcorn. This is her trying to steal my man when I walked away. How adorable is this?!
That night was amazing and I felt really special. Thanks Jimmy, love you so very much!


Friday wasn't that bad either. Friday was actually VERY good. I've been running more and more so I'm starting to get better. I shaved another minute off my two and a half mile time AND I also ran that run TWICE. I walked a total of 7.5 miles going to base three times during the day and then ran later that night with Jimmy. It's so motivating running with him and I'm thankful he does it with me. At one point during the run he's like, "Don't stop baby!" and me being able to reply saying "I'm not going too." is just awesome. I feel like I'm progressing and it's pretty great to be able to say we did it together, ya know?

After the run we went to this place called Mike's Mexican. I will need to post pictures of that next time I go (I forgot the camera). The food was pretty good. Here's something funny though....this Mexican food place is in Japan and on the wall in the back where they cook the food was a book that said, "Cooking Mexican for Dummies." LOL I thought that was just too funny.


Other than all of that it's a lovely Saturday and we are taking the day off and enjoying sometime together. I have a little bit of homework to finish and lots of loving to give. I hope you all find love some where today and soak up every little thing that it has to offer you.

  29. Hi, I just popped over to say hello from the Boost My Blog Hop. That's too funny about the mexican restaurant. It's great that you can find decent mexican food in Japan. I have yet to find any in New Hampshire. Go figure. :)

    Have a great weekend,

  41. I totally agree with you about Despicable Me! Astrodad didn't really want to watch it, but I talked him into it anyway. Then he thought it was super cute, too! :-)
