  1. HAHAHAHA, thanks for participating. I had to laugh at the eight places you have lived. So basically the house you grew up in, the house you lived in Japan before marriage, and the house you lived after.

    I am sure you are well on your way, if not already there, to being a hot mama- you run girl? That is insane but good on you. I was a runner in another life! Now if I tried to run I would probably knock myself out with my own boobs!

    Thanks for doing the meme!

  2. I also was going to comment on the places you have lived!! I can't believe in your whole entire life you have only lived in 3 places!!! That is definitely some sort of record :P

    I totally forgot about rockmelon when I was doing my list...

  3. I've been lurking on your blog for awhile now. Actually I'm a longtime lurker on a lot of blogs of foreigners married to Japanese men and I figured it's time I say hello as I'm also in the same boat.

    I also have a son very similar in age to Ashton, it's an adventure isn't it.
    Anyways when you have a chance check out my's not very exciting though as I only started it a couple of days ago.

  4. I relate to a lot of things you wish you could do! What kind of business do you want to start. I am looking into starting one when I go back to Canada. So exciting but scary too!

  5. Awww... if I ever EVER get back to America feel free to cross one of your list by coming to stay with us!!

    I hope Ryota can work less hours too and SO jealous about Cold Stone. When I come back in October please feel free to drive me to Nishinomiya Gardens as well so we can both enjoy ;)

    Don't worry about the mummy tummy you are looking great!!! You looked so HOT in that dress you wore to the "rainy picnic" back in April.

  6. Lulu~ hehe, my moving history is pretty funy hey, athough I fibbed a bit, I actually moved one more time but it was within Osaka so that's 4 houses!
    Oooo I know what you mean aout the boobs with running, I have to pretty much stap em down now I'm breastfeding!

    Nay~ I did the same thing when I was reading your list, I forgot cherries, so I'll swap you!

    Michelle~ Thanks for the comment!I lurk on many blogs and only recently started commenting, it's great having lots of people in the same sitation you can relate to. Look forward to reading your blog!

    Beamies~ Yeh the business thing is something we really want to do, but if we do it kind of means we have to stay in Japan for the long run and we're not sure if we wanna... If we're in Japan we want to open an international yochien and if in Aussie a landscaping business. Still really not sure though...

    Sara~ Cold stone was goooooodddd. And I'll definitely drive you there when you come back!
    hehe, thanks for the confidence boost, it's just hard to get back into the swing of fitness, I'm snacking all day and feel like a big whale! I gained about 20kgs when i was preggers so I've got a way to go yet!
    And will take yu up on the place to stay in America when we go!

  7. Cold Stone kicks ass! The smell just luuuurrrrsss me in.

    I am totally getting the Sapranos, did you see the last season part 2 yet? I have not, and have been waiting and waiting for them to get it over here, I might get weak and end up buying it.

    I got you covered in Greece and in America and I'll take any excuse to see my family in Greece, well just an Aunty.. but still..
