Starbucks, St Patrick’s Day, And Sex Toys (18+)

Since coming to Japan, one of the things that every wife seems to collect Starbucks mugs. I held out for about a year before I decided to start collecting them too. I bought a Hiroshima coffee mug shortly after I came back in November. Then in February Starbucks released their Sakura line of mugs. As usual, they sold out everywhere in about 48 hours. Luckily my neighbor, Dacia, was in Tokyo where they sell out a bit slower and was able to grab me one. It is a really pretty metallic hot pink travel mug. Two weeks after Starbucks released these mugs, they released the Purity line of Sakura mugs. Dacia and I decided to drive to Hiroshima the day they released to go pick up some new mugs. … More Starbucks, St Patrick’s Day, And Sex Toys (18+)

Lighting Up The Holidays With Katniss

Right before Christmas, Jeremy and I wanted to go back to Hiroshima to see the Dream Illumination Lights near Peace Park. We decided that we would take Katniss with us. My mom had given me a kitty stroller for Christmas and I was excited to try it. For all the outings we had done with cats, they had been close to base and only about an hour or two. Hiroshima would be an almost two hour drive one way alone but we felt that Katniss was ready for the challenge. We would have taken Bagheera too if we felt he was ready but he hasn’t been out as much as Katniss and not as comfortable with crowds yet.

Wanna wrassle?

One of the things that has been at the top of my Japanese bucket list is to go see a Sumo event. Normally they are really expensive and far from us so I haven’t gone yet. On October 29th though there will be a sumo event in Hiroshima!!! I can’t wait to go with Jeremy. … More Wanna wrassle?

New Adventures In Same Hiroshima 

One of the great things about being stationed at MCAS Iwakuni is that new people are always arriving. One of the new neighbors in our building is Domenik and her husband, Larry. Last week Domenik and I decided that we needed more Lush in our life. If you don’t know what Lush is, I apologize. Please go to Lush and order a bath bomb ASAP. They are amazing. … More New Adventures In Same Hiroshima 

Delightfully Scary Fun Labor Day

Today has been an interesting day to say the least. I went to Hiroshima with some new friends Sam and Jaime (the couple I went to Costco with last week), and their friends Michael and Graham. We wanted to go try out the haunted house that we had been hearing about. It is only going on until September 8th. The Japanese haunted houses are associated more with Obon than Halloween. Today was our only chance to visit it before it closed. This haunted house was located by the Hiroshima Carps stadium.
