Sanrio throwbacks and Wish me mell

i. Sanrio throwbacks

These are the sheets I use for my table in massage class :3
You know... for learning purposes! x]

I'm really digging the fact that Sanrio is bringing back their old school characters! I mean... Strawberry King?!? Oh muh goodness!! It's been ages! So I was really excited to see that Sanrio sheet set :) It's like it was meant to be! "Twin sheets"?? "Sanrio"?? "Old school characters"?? "The"?? YES PLEASE, COUNT ME IN!!

ii. Wish me mell

On December 27th, 2010, our friends at Sanrio Japan welcomed their newest friend to the Sanrio family – Wish me mell!

When she was first introduced – she didn’t want to leave her egg shaped house because she didn’t have any friends. But thanks to all the kind correspondence from fans all over Japan, Mell finally decided to leave her house this week! - Sanrio

I love that even though Wish me mell is a new character, Sanrio had her drawn with a more "dated" feel. She looks like a vintage character. Actually, when I first saw a picture of her, I seriously thought she was another one of Sanrio's old characters that I must not have seen before because it was that old! But I was so wrong. Even so, just looking at this new character makes me feel so nostalgic. Especially with seeing all these older characters Sanrio has revived :)

Mell resides in the pastel-colored world called “Merci Hills”. Among her friends in Merci Hills is a turtle named Marin, a bear named Aro, a kitten named Chico and a panda named Poco. - Sanrio

To new beginnings!

Last week Jojo decided to make a "surprise" visit and flew out to hang out with me for a couple days. We hadn't spoken for weeks and he heard through the grapevine that I was feeling sad. Though I was feeling very down, I wasn't able to shed any tears until we finally spoke. But they were happy tears.

Of course, I was also upset with him that he would waste his money on a plane ticket just to come see me. I've never had a friend go so out of their way for me just because I was sad. I guess since I was putting so much of myself into other friendships and not receiving much in return, I wasn't used to having someone else do so much more for me. I'm so blessed to have Jojo. He's my BESST friend :)

Anyway, we had a good time walking around downtown Huntsville and having great conversations.

I've always wanted to go to the art museum downtown.

We had a nice walk around Big Spring Park, though it was SOO cold!!

Huntsville was built around this spring.

The "Friendship Bridge"

The spring is full of koi. I like the "special" koi, hehehe :D

Birds fly south for the winter.
Right, we're in the south.

Being silly... this is how we do.

"These are our recreational clothes"
We love Nacho.

I'm gonna have to come back out to Big Spring Park when the cherry trees are in bloom and the grass isn't dead.

We had lunch in town, met up with my friends and hung out at Bridge Street, and finished off the day walking around Parkway Place Mall.

Welcome to Huntsville, "Rocket City"! I love this rocket :)

Plenty of legroom!!

Though I'm still a little bitter about Jojo insisting on flying out during the coldest time of the year, I had a good time. It was refreshing hanging out with a guy who's got his head on straight and doesn't have ulterior motives for me. Seriously, there needs to be more guys like him. I really appreciate him doing all he could do to make me feel better.

So, even though the first few weeks of this new year had me down, I'm on to better things!

F%#! happy endings, it's all about the new beginnings!!
