Heading Home!

We are finally headed back home... But while I was in WA, I've been enjoying a big helping of Crunchyroll!

Ao Haru Ride/ Blue Spring Ride by Lo Sakisaka

Has become one of my faves. 
Funny thing is I fell in love with the photo above, shared on Facebook by the Manga Fox group page. I saved it and it became my wallpaper on my iPad mini and iPhone! When we got to my sister's place I decided to look up the photos information...the rest is history!

A simple beautiful love story.
These two are the main characters, Kou and Futaba!
The end credits and the characters above...
Futaba and Kou. I'm on the last episode for this season! So, if you get a chance check it out and tell me what you think?

I'll be home soon!

To Tukwila We Go!!

My sister wanted to take us to Seafood City in Tukwila, WA
A great place for Asian foodies, and pastries! My father loves to get his fish here!
Just outside the entrance to Seafood City...I found a Daiso Japan store!!
I told my sister after we get lunch. I was going to check it out!
So, awesome!
We made our way to the eatery, since the girls were starving. So, we had food from "Villa Italian Pizza".

Just a few pics of our surroundings...
Afterwards, we headed to a few shops before deciding to go back to the Daiso store.
I got this keychain for my husband! We shopped for a awhile at the Daiso store. Then, we made the drive back to Olympia. It was an hour drive back, and there was a lot of traffic!
So many times I tried to capture a shot of Mt. Rainier... It's a lovely view from SeaTac!
Seattle Tacoma dome too!
When we got home, I picked up from the Bakery in Seafood City, Kalamai, and ensaymada both with Übe! Yummy!
My goodies from the Daiso Japan! Chocolates, tiny ribbons, a plastic pill case, envelopes, and gift boxes in dollhouse form!
These chocolates were tasty!
I will use these ribbons on my dollies!
The cute dollhouse gift boxes! Below, the three styles available...
And the origami clothe envelope.
Soon it will be time to head home... It's been a fun relaxing trip. But I'm ready to go home!

Enjoying Washington State!

Since the graduation ceremony we've been just enjoying our time w family and the
Sights, but mostly shopping!

My neice took us driving through a town called, "Rainier". So, that we could get a better view of
Mt. Rainier!

Mt. Rainier, below.
Then, to the mall we go...
After eating at Panda Express... My fortune! Lol
Sara enjoying her drink as we walked around the mall!
I found this cute iPhone 5 case! Sadly, my iPhone can't fit it...ugh!
From Hot Topic.

Thanks for looking! ~ ggsdolls

One of the reasons we came out! To enjoy seeing my neice's graduation!
Sneak shots, as we waited in line to go into the gym...
Someone below was bored...
Finally, inside the gymnasium. We got good seats and waited for the ceremony to begin!

Congrats to my neice Amy! We are so proud of you!

In transit...

We are still in transit! Ugh!
Jiji hanging around...

While we waited at our gate this cute kimono dressed couple came thru...

Finally on our way to Chicago! I was actually in first class upstairs! My very first time in the second level of a 747! Nothing different, other than having to go downstairs to use the restroom!

Sara having McDonald's as soon as we arrived into Chicago O'hare Airport!

Taby too! We were exhausted and ready to get our last leg over with!

Finally, our last leg into Seattle WA! Poor Taby, she finally got to sit by the window!! Yup, No window!!

We made it into SeaTac airport by 11:39pm! Exhausted! Our summer vacation begins!

Thanks for reading! ~ ggsdolls

On a trip!

In Narita, Japan! On our way stateside!

Sara playing in the kids area!

Yummy, yakisoba for lunch!

We found a "Kabuki" Store...

A cute anime hostess! Directing you to the cashier!

Just in front of the anime hostess! A Totoro display.

On our way to our gate... Ice cream vending machine.

We got strawberry and banana! Yummy!

My favorite game above, Gatcha Gatcha of One Piece!

We also met a famous band member from "Common Kings"!!
Bassist, Ivan. Popular on Guam for their island reggae!

Off to fly... - ggsdolls

New Hair Color for Arnval!

Just before leaving for my trip to Japan and Disneyland. I decided to make sure I repainted Arnval's hair! Sorry no 'work in progress' photos, but here is a before and after shot!!
Before she had a lovely shade of purple and then I repainted it pink below! There is just something about pink that draws me to it...
 Arnval in my dolly cabinet! I will try to take some newer photos of her soon!

Below, Kikipop wearing Azone Pure Neemo Dress on the left.

Then, thru the mail today, I picked up this 'Another' anime manga figure named Mei. I don't know anything about the manga and will have to do research, but she is the only other figure I know of that has a tiny bjd dolly!! Thus, why I bought her! I love teeny tiny figure dollies! They are just tiny enough to carry in your purse or wallet!
 I will need to read up on the manga to find out why she carries this dolly? Still eerie and cool in so many ways!
 The cute bjd doll in her hand as you can see below has a ribbon around her eyes to keep her from seeing? For something so tiny, there are painted areas to show joints and even her hair is painted.
 Front above and back side below.

 Arnval is holding her!

My two teeny tiny figure dollies, Mirai Suenaga, and doll. Maybe I can add a lace skirt on the other...? I trimmed off a bit of the ribbon.
 An outside shot...
Thanks so much for reading! ~ ggsdolls
