A Weekend In Aspen.

Day 1: 04/02/16 , Saturday
Hello everyone! 🙂   *waves*  If you have been following me on my Twitter (@xokittykatrina) or my Instagram (@kittykatrina) you know that Daniel and I went to Aspen for a weekend beginning of April, it was our 1st time!!! *giggles* We were super stoked! I didn’t get to take as much pictures or videos as I planned to since I was too busy enjoying it and keep forgetting about my camera in my bag. Lol but here are some pictures I’ve taken during our stay.

It was a pretty fast travel or at least it felt like it since we were up at 4am for our 6:30am flight. We all KO’ed throughout the whole thing. lol. Since our day is already filled with activities, we had to get more sleep. I was super excited when i saw the mountains covered in snow during landing. The Aspen airport was pretty small.. i mean the whole town is small. i was thrilled to know that everything was walking distance.. well almost everything is. First stop was to get our snowboarding pants and jackets and everything else from SAGA Outerwear. Then Snow Mobiling!! YAY!!!! =D

We went to T-Lazy-7 for our Snowmobile tour with lunch!!!! woooohoooooo! fun, food and amazing scenery!!! Sooo uhmm.. it was my 1st time riding a snowmobile and i was so nervous i thought i was gonna die. lol i was driving slower than how fast everyone wants to go. My little arms couldn’t hold that thing to go straight and the rough road doesn’t make it easy. My arms and hands got a super good workout i tell you. lol It was soooo worth it tho. I had an amazing time. If you ever visit Aspen make sure you add snowmobiling on the to-do-list. Check out their website for more info. http://www.tlazy7.com/snowmobile-tours/

Super friendly birds in the mountains. Our tour guide gave us a tiny piece of bread to hold out and a little gray bird comes flying towards you to take the bread. It was the coolest experience ever. lol   Photo by: @misshattan

After the tour we met up with friends for dinner and drinks at the bottom of the slopes where they have restaurant / bar. Everyone gathers after snowboarding or skiing. It was a super tiring but super fun day. Went back our hotel to shower and nap before any night time activities. We stayed at The Sky Hotel ( http://www.theskyhotel.com/ ). It was such a cute hotel. Outdoor pool and Jacuzzi. Beneath it is a the gym and the snowboarding gear rentals. It also 5 mins walking distance from the slopes. AND…. they take dogs!  You know.. everyone seems to LOVEEEE dogs in Aspen! Everyone has one! i love it!!!!

After napping after dinner. We didn’t wake up till 11pm and were hungry and we need water. You need to drink lots of water so we don’t get a headache. Daniel and i walked to the gas station which was only 15mins away walking. I love it. Everything was so close and Aspen is so beautiful at night. I’m inlove! And everyone is just so sweet and friendly. i mean.. i almost wanna live here. hahaha

i was super excited about this hot chocolate machine!!! lol

Day 2: 04/03/16 , Sunday
Its snowboarding day!!!! woooooooooooooooo!!!!! We went to Buttermilk Mountain cause they have a less intense slope. ha! jokes on me. I ended up all the waaaaaaaaaayyyyyy to the top TOP!!!! i thought i was never gonna make it down. i mean… i did maybe half way… on my ass… -_- i was in so much pain from falling that i took the lift down.. i swear the mountain was gonna close and i would still be not even half way down if i kept going. *shrug*

So umm… since there wasn’t a direct flight from Aspen to LAX.. we took a prop plane from Aspen to Denver airport. Holy cow…. the most exciting and scariest time of my life. eeeeeekkkk! The plane was sooooooo tiny! it sits 5! Five people including the pilot. Although the view was beyond beautiful… i  was way to sick to appreciate it. i was trying my hardest not to throw up.. lmao. Motion sickness for the win! …….not. -_- I got off the plane and my knees were shaking… hahaha. i took videos. ill be including it in mu vlog.

Some of things i got for Christmas this year. 🙂

Hi everyone! i since some of you are asking what i got for Christmas this year, i decided to make it my 1st blog post. Since i love sharing with you guys my favorite things anyways. And also i wanted to give back for how supportive you guys are with everything that i’m doing. I have the sweetest followers and i hope to meet you all one day and give you all giant (all 4’11 of me) bear hugs. haha.

If you have been following me on all of my social media then you know that i LOVEEEEEEEE love love anime and super kawaii things. The only reason i want an iPad is so that i can watch my anime anywhere since i don’t think my phone screen is big enough. lol. I’m not sure when i tweeted about it but when i found out about Apple came out with an iPad mini 4 already, i went and looked it up and started looking for a case for it immediately and i started blabbering to how i want and that i’m gonna get it myself for  Christmas. But since Christmas was around the corner, none of us was allowed to buy anything for ourselves until after the 25th.

So… with that being said my boyfriend got me an iPad mini 4 and the cover and case i wanted. We did a secret santa with his friends and what are the chances??!! He got my name and he was my secret santa. lol. I love all the gifts i got but my ipad is my absolute favorite! Thank you baby!!! im in loveeee!!! i swear ill never let this go. Here’s to losing sleep cause ill be watching anime all night or playing games. hahaha. Next is the pink Dagne Dover mini tote my best friend Raichelle got me. (pictures of it will be posted as soon as i get them, she ordered it for me but they sent her the wrong color.) Daniel also got me a naked 3 eyeshadow pallet. I wont be posting a photo of it since im sure everyooooonneee knows what it looks like. lol
