Four Parts

Hi Steffi, this post comes to you in four parts.

Part one. So this happened today and my life could not be more complete.

Two. We are going to Japan in 6 weeks! My mom was being very cute and told me she was looking up ‘traveling to Japan’ to make sure we knew about everything possible. I showed her our emails and the place we booked and I was like, see Steffi has it all figured out 🙂

Part three. I did my first 12 hour livestream on twitch last weekend, it was awesome! And it looks like I just reached my first goal on Patreon so I will make the 12 hour streams a monthly thing. (Thank you Jamie!!)

And part four – I’m almost done with my Harry Potter blanket, only 2 squares and the banner to go. Can’t believe this has taken me a year!

PS – I have stopped reading for right now. My mind’s just not in it, but I’ll let you know when I do start again!

Hi Steffibun! Last Tuesday was a beautiful day when I received this in the mail! Thanks to Jamie, I had a credit and I needed new tops for work so I went ahead and ordered one. I bought everything in my last box when I asked for all sleeveless tops. This time I ordered all sleeved shirts. This is what they sent me!

 From top left to bottom right:

Vidal Henley Blouse – this was too big so I didn’t keep it.

Londonderry Henley Blouse – this preppy style was adorable but it was just a bit too see through.

Ervin Cutout Detail Blouse – I kept this! The material is super light and I love the color.

Piazon Scallop Detail Blouse – I kept this one too. The sleeves are see through!

Lisbon Stud Detail Blouse – the shoulders are puffy so I wasn’t sure about it at first but the color and studs got me. I kept it!

Japanese Friendship Garden

Hi Karabean and Cheese,

I have had the most wonderful week celebrating my mom’s 60th birthday in San Diego! 

Today we went to the Japanese Friendship Garden (or San Kei En), which is an “expression of friendship for San Diego’s sister city Yokohama,” which is just south of Tokyo. It was a wonderful place and Andrew and I left there feeling so refreshed and even more excited for our upcoming trip! (If that’s even possible) 

Here are some pictures that I took and I hope you enjoy. じゃあね  (It means see you! Andrew helped!)

This one is for Alison 🙂

Happy Belated Birthday

To 2 of my favorite people, Harry Potter and JK Rowling!

Hi Steffi! Their birthday was on Sunday and we spent the first few minutes of the day together at the Cursed Child book release. It was a sort of lackluster evening (mostly due to the butterbeer that was only beer and no butter), but we spent it together. Here’s some celebratory Harry Potter things that I find awesome. Click the photos for links!

Escape from Privet Drive is a virtual race. It’s 50 miles from Surrey to King’s Cross. I’m thinking about registering so I can reap the benefits of this, fitbit and PokemonGO at the same time. Efficiency.

A Pokemon Walk

Hello Steffibun,

I didn’t know what to post about this week so I decided to take you along on one of my Pokemon walks last night! I wish taking pictures while Pokemoning were easier, but just experiencing outside—me and Grayson notice so many things that we normally wouldn’t have. Thanks PokemonGO!

20160718_185543.jpgIt wasn’t hot for once! There was a storm that rolled in but it was over in 3 minutes and it left behind all these lovely clouds.

20160718_185808.jpgOur park is so green and the grass was so fluffy from the bit of rain. Bonus, no one here yet!

Mom, what ARE we doing?? Can I go pee on that tree now?

20160718_193206Here’s where I caught and hatched 2 Pikachu’s! Such a beautiful place to be with friends!

I’m really loving these daily walks. It means it looks like I’m actually trying in my fitbit challenges. Plus all the time with my husband and stuff. I really love this game ❤

Reading update: I downloaded the audiobook for Name of the Wind and I read 2 chapters while listening. I’m on chapter 18.

Nerdfighteria Again

Steffi, last weekend was one of the greatest. I am so thankful for Nerfighteria, for John and Hank, and for the awesome that founded our friendship.

First things first. WE SAW AN OWL!!

We got to hang out with Christowaffle, who made 4 attempts to take a photo that I demanded and ended up with this masterpiece:Share from Pixlr

We reminisced about the night that changed our lives:

We saw another Hank Green concert, where we were absolutely living when we got to sing along to Everybody.

I gave Katherine a Hanklerfish.

We finally got to experience a Harry & the Potters concert TOGETHER. This means so much to me. And don’t mind me, I’ll be listening to them for a solid straight month now.

We Went to Vegas

Hi Steffi it’s Wednesday, but I don’t get a punishment because you said so! We went to Vegas last weekend and I got all of 3 pictures. We were just having too much fun. Or we were just too lazy. Based on my shirts, let’s go with lazy.
