My trip to the USA

In June, it was time for Ciera to go back to the USA, as her working holiday visa was expiring. This was a pretty convenient time for me, as I was on my winter break from university which meant I could go with her. This was the first time I had been out of Australia so it was all pretty exciting.

Anaheim – Disneyland, Medieval Times

The first stop on this trip was in Anaheim California. During our time here, we stayed at the Carousel Inn. It was in a great location, right across the street from Disneyland and California Adventures. The hotel had a rooftop pool which was great at night when the fireworks in Disneyland were going off. You could also see all the key parts of both parks from there. Ciera’s friend Luci and her boyfriend Sterling were also in Anaheim at the same time as us. They were staying at a different hotel for a few days, but joined us and stayed at the same hotel as us a little later on the trip, on the days we visited the Disney parks. […]

Our Gold Coast Vacation/Holiday!

OH MY GOSH GUYS! I’m sorry it’s been so long. I have no legitimate excuses for it but Daniel does. He’s been super busy with Uni and work. I’ve just been busy keeping myself mentally healthy. I guess that is kind of a big deal, huh? Anyways, I’m sure you guys would love to hear about the trip we took to the Gold Coast. Even if it was… 4 months ago! 😉 I got some footage of everything but I don’t know how to video edit and the clips I took aren’t that great just by themselves. We did upload a whole bunch of photos though, which can be found in our photo gallery.

On the airplane.

It was Daniel’s first time out of Victoria and on a plane so he was really excited (and super cute to watch!!). The flight there was alright. It got a lot better when we were getting close to landing. If you looked out the window you could see the ocean and the shore line. We were lucky that no one sat close to us so Daniel and I scooted over one seat to look out. It was beautiful! […]

Week 29 – Preparing for the holiday

Ciera, Daniel and Louie!

This week has been awesome. Mainly because I’ve been so excited about the holiday Ciera and I will be going on!! I’ve never been outside of Victoria, so this will be quite an experience for me. We’ve been preparing stuff and booking things that we’ll be doing.

Monday wasn’t too amazing for us. I worked, and Ciera did… something. She can’t remember what she did on Monday. It was probably something so incredible that even she can’t remember it. Wow, that’s very awesome!! Erm… yeah… Anyways. Tuesday, Ciera needed to purchase a few things, so she went to our local shopping centre, the Northcote Plaza. Unfortunately, she wasn’t feeling too happy during the day :(. I tried my best to comfort her and make her feel loved, and I think I did a good job. I’m sure she appreciates what I do for her, as she does the same for me! We’re both pretty amazing :D. […]

Week 28!

I don’t feel like blogging today, sorry guys. I’ll just briefly touch on what we’ve been doing, okay? Just to keep you guys up to date. :)

Daniel didn’t have work on Monday, because it was a public holiday, so we spent the day together. It’s been so good having extra time together. We went to Northland AGAIN. This time we went because I wanted a body pillow. NEEDED a body pillow. We found one for $9 at K-Mart and then got some nice, soft purple fabric from Lincraft so I could make a pillowcase for it. It turned out really nice. :) We had Lord of the Fries for lunch. Daniel loves that place and we always seem to get coupons for it.

Tuseday through Friday is all in a jumble to me. Daniel had work the rest of the week, of course. He’s a working man. I remember being really depressed for a few days. I think the main cause was me being homesick and not having a job added to it. I feel so useless when I have nothing to do during the day.  One night we ordered a Flip Mino (video camera) and scales (so we can tell how fat we are) from catchoftheday.com.au. They arrived on Thursday and we’ve been having fun with them since. We were considering on doing a vlog (video blog) today instead of typing something out but Daniel thought it’d take too much time to get ready. Next week, you might be lucky and get to see a vlog! Friday wasn’t very exciting either. Daniel had work. He got out earlier than usual but missed the early bus so he got home at the usual time. 😛

We made a trip to Costco on Saturday with Silvia, Daniel’s mum. It was crazy trying to catch all the busses. We had to run for at least two because we were slowpokes or just didn’t know what we were doing. 😛 After Costco, we stopped at K-Mart to get some more shorts and look for things we need to bring on our holiday. We only found the shorts but that was good enough for us. :) I’ve finally gotten Daniel to wear something other than jeans! Haha! I just started wearing things other than jeans too… *shifty eyes*. At night, I got to talk to one of my best friends, Luci. We talked about soooo much and were on the phone for two hours. It was so good to hear from her. I need to make sure we talk on the phone more.

Today we slept in until 11:30 this morning. We both have been needing it although it doesn’t feel like it helped me much now. I’ve only been awake for 6 hours and I’m tired. :( We were trying to decide if we wanted to go out when Andrea (one of my friends in America) reminded me that I was going to webcam with her and Josh (another friend from America). Daniel and I played Mario while I was waiting for Andrea and Josh to get ready. I ended up talking to them on webcam for at least and hour and a half. There was a lot of laughing, which I definitely needed. I miss hanging out with them and laughing that much. Those were some really good days.

That’s it for now, guys. I’m sorry I’m slacking. I just can’t be bothered with a picture or typing much this week. I might update this post later so keep your eyes peeled. :)

Until next time 😀
-Ciera

P.S.  There may not be a blog on the Sunday after this next one coming up. Daniel and I will be leaving for a trip to the Gold Coast the next day so we might be too busy with packing. I’m going to try to get some clips of our trip on camera so I hope that makes up for it :)

Week 27 – Happy New Year!

Daniel got a haircut!

This week was pretty good. I had Monday and Tuesday off work (public holidays for Christmas and Boxing Day), and also took a day of annual leave on Wednesday. So I actually only worked for two days in the week, and ended up finishing work early on Friday. This meant I had heaps of time to spend with Ciera! It was awesomely amazing, definitely a great change from the day-to-day work I have to do. I love Ciera, and spending time with her! <3

On Monday, Ciera, my mum, two of my uncles and I all went to Costco. Costco’s been around for quite a while in the USA, but only recently opened in Australia (about  a year ago). There was some pretty good stuff there. We ended up buying a game for our Nintendo Wii (Epic Mickey) as it was only $50 at Costco (compared to $70-80 at other stores!). Ciera’s been playing the game quite a lot, and seems to be enjoying it. A few weeks earlier, she bought me New Super Mario Bros. Wii, which we’ve also been playing quite a lot. It’s a great fun game!

On Tuesday, Ciera suggested that we buy a board game. We took a look around a few stores at Northland (like K-Mart, Target and Toys R Us) and ended up buying a version of Monopoly – The “Here and Now – The World Edition”  version. It was a limited edition and was cheaper than most of the other versions of Monopoly. […]

Week 20 together!

We were both excited for the parade!

Saturday was probably the best day for us this week. The rest of the week was normal except for a couple of bad days I had.

The week seems to be all jumbled up in my brain so I won’t go by day; I’ll go by what I remember happening. The start of the week wasn’t fun for me. On Tuesday I lost my phone while heading to work so I had to turn around and look for it. Of course this made me a tiny bit late (5 mins) during the week they were checking on punctuality. After that day I decided I needed to have a day off to get things done and avoid any other bad luck. When I tried to call in, the house phone was out of credit. Such bad luck with phones! Anyways, I got that fixed and called in. Then I went out to meet up with Daniel for lunch. We had a good lunch, of course. :) Then I went home to wait for Daniel. We decided to meet up at Northcote Plaza to grab some things I needed. After we got home from that, it was just a few minutes until I had to get shifts for next week. I only managed to get 3 :(.

Daniel and I have been feeling sick this week. It’s an off and on thing but still no fun. Since I’m allergic to everything, I blame my sickness on things in the air. Daniel hasn’t been tested for allergies but I still blame allergens for his sickness as well :P.

The Myer Christmas Parade was on Saturday. […]

Week 16 together – 4 months!

Non-stop Happiness

Oh snap! Daniel and I didn’t even notice that we’ve been together for 4 months (this year) until I started working on this post! That is so awesome! This is the longest we’ve physically been around each other, yet we’ve known each other for over two years. 😀

I don’t have much to update you with this week. Unlike most other weeks, we’ve spent our days working and then relaxing at home. We met for lunch a few days, which was nice. We also went out today just to say we did something. I got a new umbrella and we got some LOL to try. It’s basically just carbonated juice and it’s really good. :) Other than that, we’ve been laying around the house, working on the computers, watching movies… the good stuff! 😛 […]
