Only 33 More Goals to Go!!!

I thought I would give you guys an update on my '35 before 35' goal list. In case you don't know what that is, it's a list of goals that I want to accomplish before I turn 35. I'm happy to report that I was able to cross off two of my goals. Yay!!!

What were they?

#12 See my favorite K-pop boy band Big Bang live
Oh yes I did that with a lot of screaming, laughing, dancing, singing, jumping, crying, and hugging my husband. The show was AMAZING and it's a night that I will never forget!

#26 Be more patient about having children - they will come when we are both ready and the time is right
This one came pretty easy to me surprisingly. I never thought that my husband and I would see eye to eye on the children issue. But, I guess with time and reasonably looking at your circumstances, you can come to a logical conclusion pretty quick. 

I'm so excited to see what else I will accomplish before I turn 35. I'm still a little hesitant about riding a roller coaster, but since I put it on the list I MUST DO IT!!!

Where Have You Been?

Hello everyone! It's been such a LONG time since I've been on here. So long in fact, that Google automatically logged me out of my blog. Lol! Has anyone ever had that happened to them before?

Anyway, I've been asked by numerous people, "Where are you?" or "Where have you been?". Before I answered the question, let me just say that it's so nice to be missed :)

So, where have I been? Last month was CRAZY!!! As soon as we got back from our road trip to New Jersey/New York, I was flooded with orders from my Etsy shop. It was a very exciting time, as well as stressful. With it being November, I knew that the chances that these orders were going to become gifts definitely spiked my anxiety levels. I was trying so hard to be perfect with every piece, even though I know perfection is impossible. I got through it though with a lot of comfort from the hubs :)

Now that I have some breathing room since the shop has slowed down, I can now get back to blogging. Yay! I would love to share pictures and stories from our road trip we took last month. Look forward to it! Also starting next year, which is oh so far away, I want to cover different topics and features. If you guys have any suggestions as to what you would like to see/read, just let me know.

Anniversary Surprise Video!

Hello everyone! I'm so sorry for being missing in action, but I've been feeling pretty miserable these past few weeks. If it's not allergies, it's Tourette's, and if it's not that it's something else.

You remember me posting about the surprise my husband gave me for our anniversary? Well, my friend edited and posted the video to YouTube. Now, I can finally share it with you guys! I know a lot of stuff that goes on in this video will probably be lost on you guys if you don't watch the web show "It Your Kimchi" on YouTube. So, you just want to see my reaction to the Big Bang tickets, you can skip to 5:30 on the video. Hope you guys enjoy :)

Best Surprise EVER!!!

Hello everyone! I couldn't wait until today so that I could share with you all something wonderful that happened to me over the weekend. My husband, brother, and one of my best friends set me up with the best surprise of all time!

We were making a parody video of a YouTube show called "Eat Your Kimchi" where a husband and wife discuss various K-pop videos and life in Korea in general. My role in the show was to be a rabid fan who just won tickets to see Big Bang live, who just happens to be my favorite k-pop group. Needless to say, I didn't know that the ticket I was given was REAL! 

That's right, my husband is taking me all the way to New Jersey so I can see Big Bang! That is his anniversary gift to me! Hands down, I have the most awesome and thoughtful husband of all time! Plus, my brother is going with us...ROAD TRIP! Now I can mark this off my '35 Before 35' list!

I tried to upload the video so you could see my response, but it's not working :( Let's just say, there was a lot of crying and screaming on my part. LOL!
