Unboxing The Kawaii YumeTwins February Box

In February's YumeTwins box, there were cute and loveable items to help celebrate Valentine's Day. These boxes ship from Japan, so there's always exciting things inside.

The first thing Natalie pulled out was this fabulous chocolate ball point pen. We love our chocolate, so this is a hit.

There was also a heart shaped accessory holder. Right now Natalie is using it for all her hair ties.

This Sanrio Letter Set is perfect for notes for friends and family:

I love these zipper gift bags! I've put some Girl Scout cookies in there with Natalie's lunch before.

Finally, Natalie thought the Hello Kitty Sanrio Pouch Plush was cute. She's been putting her change into Hello Kitty.

You can get your own YumeTwins box for less than $40! Click here and you'll get $5 off your first box! Each month you'll get 6-8 surprises from Japan. Pokemon, Gudetama, to name a few.

What was your favorite item in this month's box? Mine is the chocolate ball point pen!

Hey, It's Okay

I got this idea from Glamour magazine. You can link up any day of the week. All you have to do is make a list of what you're okay about. Simple! Please do not link up a post that has nothing to do with Hey, It's Okay. It's rude and I'll delete the link.

HEY, IT'S OKAY.... be in disbelief that my son is turning 18 on March 2nd. Ack! How did that happen? be picking Tommy up early from school on his birthday so we can have lunch and celebrate his birthday. He's had perfect attendance, so I don't feel guilty. have told Tommy he can pick wherever he wants to eat on his birthday. Lunch and dinner. He's all, "We can go out TWICE?" That rarely happens. And no, my kids don't ask me to cook a special meal because I burn things. Right now Tommy is saying he wants Logan's Roadhouse for lunch and McDonald's for dinner. be picking up a Shamrock Shake when we go to McDonald's. I tried the new Mint Oreo McFlurry and it was tasty! The mint flavoring wasn't mixed in that well, but you could still taste the mint at least. have gone to Pass Member Appreciation Day at SeaWorld San Antonio to check out the new wooden coaster Texas Stingray. I'm too much of a wimp to go on, so my kids did it, and said it was tons of fun. We also got this beanie and cookie for being pass members (plus sunglasses):

Discovering Texas Tulips In La Vernia, Texas

I had no idea there ever WAS a tulip farm in San Antonio until I saw it mentioned on Facebook. I thought, awesome, we can go there and get some birthday pictures for my daughter.

Texas Tulips is actually located in La Vernia, which is about an hour from San Antonio. (There's another location in Dallas!) They are open 7 days a week from 10 AM-6PM. They open in February and close in early March. (The Dallas one stays open longer.)

As you see, it's $5 per person, which makes sense because unfortunately, people will step in the fields to get that perfect shot and ruin the tulips. I also saw people picking tulips and use them for a shot, then set them back down. DO NOT DO THIS. There are even signs saying "You pick, you buy." Also, dogs are not allowed, but I did see one in a carrier which made me go, "What?" I guess so long as the dogs aren't on the ground it's okay.

Basically you go up, pay, and then you can grab a basket and pick some tulips. It's $2.50 a stem. We opted not to pick any tulips and just go for photos.

When we went, it was a Saturday so it was busy. If you can make it during the week, I recommend that, because I imagine it's not as crowded. However, since I needed my daughter for birthday shots, a weekend was all we could do. It is tough to get a shot without people in the background, but I did my best.

Also, be mindful of people taking photos. I tried to take care and stay out of shots when I could. DO NOT STEP ON FLOWER BEDS. Go around.

The tulips, as you can see, are gorgeous:

My daughter? Well, she had a tween girl flare up and was in a MOOD. I'll share more about that and if we got birthday shots in a future blog post.

Oh look, she's sort of smiling.

There is a building where you can get snacks and drinks as well. Plus this pretty background:

And Natalie did apologize for being moody at least. But sheesh. (Again, I'll share THAT story in a future blog post.)

Do you like tulips? I love them, but I am terrible when it comes to keeping flowers alive, so I admire them from afar and on film.
