i hope everyone is having a spectacular holiday season! christmas time is over, but don't worry because there's still new years to look forward to.

here's a look at some of my favorite presents i received this year and pretty much all of them are from my sister and her family. they know me so well.
a beautiful vintage purse from time echo vintage on etsy.
vintage recycled necklace from noble town vintage on etsy.
lord of the rings plushes from think geek. i got frodo and gandalf; they're so cute! i'm a big lord of the rings geek.

heart shaped whisk from fred flare.
and heart shaped measuring spoons from amazon.

merry christmas eve!

i'm finally home in hawaii for christmas! it feels so good to be home and with my family, it's just the heat i can't take. it's so humid. but nevertheless, being near my niece, emily jay, is worth the sweat.

let's start off our christmas celebration with one of the best things i've ever seen.

while waiting for my flight at the airport on tuesday, i heard music coming from down the way. it started getting closer and everyone realized that it was a one man band going up and down the gates playing christmas music.

one man band

it was the cutest thing ever. he even had strings connecting his feet and the bass drum mallets, so he had to walk to the beat of the song.
yay for christmas!

i hope zelda and link get married one day.

i have a very special place in my heart for legend of zelda games. they are my ultimate favorite video games EVER. love the characters, love the game-play, love the traditions and call-backs that each game has.

i brought my gamecube up to seattle with me and have the collector's edition of "the legend of zelda: ocarina of time"
and "the legend of zelda: majora's mask".
so guess what i've been playing! i managed to finish ocarina of time and now i'm working on majora's mask.

i hear the latter is one of the hardest zelda games ever and it is definitely proving to be a challenge. wish me luck!
