  1. Next time you come to visit your mother - in - law and my wonderful neighbor Mrs.Villa! Check out our Humane Society of Imperial County. You will surely find your furkid here with so many different personalities and breeds (especially chiwahwas) this shouldn't be a problem for you. Since you live in AZ now you can volunteer in other ways. Like our Humane Society has a foster program. Just an idea (: Love your blog!

    1. I would love to give back to all those furry pets, and we would love to adopt another dog, but as of now all we can do is give our time and love to the humane society. We can do so here in AZ or in the Valley :) Thanks for stopping by :)

  2. I'm so happy you have a 30 before 30, I am totally doing one too!
    I actually got into blogging because I was terrible in the kitchen (looking at your #8), and 2 years later I feel pretty good about my skills.
    Also why the Japan interest?? My hubby is Japanese and we are going this Fall, so excited~~
    Love your blog, thanks for stopping by mine earlier!

    1. Hi Gina! I think it's great to have a 30 before 30. This is a great way to document your goals before you turn 30. My goal is to also become somewhat of a better pastry cook, I'm so glad blogging worked for you. As for my Japan interest, I have never been to Japan, but I have had a chance to study a little bit of the culture and I love it. How exciting that you get to go to Japan, if you post about it in your blog, I would love to see it all. Thanks for stopping by and following along.
