My Favorite Flower!

I am not sure why but my favorite flower is the Marigold. I love the smell and the colors. orange and yellow. I like african Marigolds the most! It might also be because they keep bugs away!

A unexpected dinner!

So Joe and I went on an adventure... we wanted to try a new restaurant. We found a fun area and just couldn't decide where to eat. We walked and walked and walked and finally realized we had gone so far... and there weren't any restaurants where we had ended up. well we found a little shopping center that had a McDonald's and we were both so hungry we decided to settle. Joe had never had McD's in Japan and it is a little different than in the states.. so Joe had a hamburger with an egg on it. I I just had a classic burger. Not exactly the night we had planned on but it was still fun, and boy did we get a lot of exercise!
Joe wasn't sure if this is what he wanted to eat.
It wasn't to bad!

Joe looks very satisfied!

These are two lane roads!

Some times Hummers and Big SUV'S drive down these roads... I really don't know how but I have seen it. It reminds me of the bus in Harry Potter when it sucks in really small.

Ok so here in japan everyone hangs there clothing out to dry... well this person hung there creepy dolls out to dry.

Ramen and Gioza... yummy! The Ramen place... there are a lot better Ramen shops but this is ok.
This is the Mall Food Court

Two parties in one night...

The first Party we went to was a house warming party for Ken and Patricia... we played games and ate food, it was fun to be with everyone.

The next party was a farewell for friend who is deploying, great party sad reason.
This party had a lot of food too, I didn't eat much of it but it all looked really good/ crazy!

Can you believe they even make stuff like this.
Bacon explosion I think this is Bacon wrapped meat with more Bacon... I didn't try this just took pic's.

They are NOT my friends!

Okay so yesterday I went out and swept our balcony outside of our bedroom... and I normally find maybe a tiny spider and it doesn't worry me... but oh my I found a huge huge spider, and I freaked! I grabbed a can of raid and killed him. I left to put the can of raid away and when I went back to see him he was gone, ick ick ick! Right after I did this I had some friends stop by I told them what I had done and jokingly said I hope he isn't still alive, because spiders are vengeful! I should have knocked on wood! Because this morning when I look out my window what did I see... several spiders looking at me!
I am so creeped out right now! Joe said it was good because then we don't get mosquito's... I would rather have 100 mosquito's than one spider!

Look at this guy

This picture is so you can compare a grape to the spiders! SICK!
