That Wedding in Kagoshima

*Throwback Thursday: I'm slowly (very slowly) going to be bringing my old posts to this blog.

The special day is finally here!
My BFF's wedding!

S was so beautiful.

Everyone saw how she shined
especially her husband. Aw.

The wedding reception was fabulous, too!

S had asked me to do the speech at the reception.

Ended up taking over a month
writing it, fixing it, and practicing it.

Somehow I got through it.

My speech instructor in college used to always tell me
"Speak slowly, don't cry."

Well, I tried to speak slowly
but couldn't help crying here and there.

I mean, it was my best friend
and this was my first ever wedding speech!
(Cut me some slack here...haha)

But I made S cry, too, so it wasn't just me ;)

Happiest of marriages to this amazing couple!

That Weekend at the Tennis Tournament

Back at the tournament again this year!

I always think it's going to be my last year
but then they invite me and I can't seem to say no.

I really love my peeps.

My sister Y was here again this year, too.
So much fun seeing old friends back here every year.

This was the finals match.
A beautiful Sunday afternoon.

A full house always gets us all pumped up.

The final match was between
Nadal and Murray.

Somewhere along the way
I started rooting for the Spaniard.

Maybe because he smells so good even
right after finishing his match?

But he lost 36 62 60.

Hope he comes again next year.

And I really hope our team
can get together again net year, too!

That Night at Oedo Onsen in Odaiba

What do you do when a tennis match ends
earlier than you expected?

Go to Oedo Onsen!

They have different types of baths
and we got to walk around in our yukatas.

Super touristy but a great way to relax!
