Hello Kitty Snowboard

posted by:

“Tis the season to be jolly…fa-la-la-la la-la-la-la-la” it’s that time of the year where everyone loves to head to the mountains. I cannot even remember when is the last time I’ve seen snow, maybe 4 years ago when I was in Japan :D James and I were talking about going up to the mountain this year. He got me so excited! I wanted my very own snowboard. But as you can see I don’t just want any ordinary snowboard, I wanted a Hello Kitty snowboard and it was definitely hard to find. About two weeks ago, eBay was auctioning a “Baby Blue Angel Hello Kitty Snowboard” sold to a lucky person for $455 USD, just looking at the bill made me sad :[

I was hunting for Hello Kitty items on a local classified advertisement website and saw a Hello Kitty snowboard up for sale. I immediately called the person to see if it was still available :D and went on the very same day to pick it up. I couldn't afford to miss out on this lucky offer, how often do you see people selling a Hello Kitty snowboard within your budget? Very very rare!

This Hello Kitty snowboard is officially mine <3 The very same design they had at the Three Apples exhibit!

Close up front view of the Hello Kitty snowboard featured in 1998, Made in Japan. I’m assuming this Hello  Kitty snowboard is a pink leopard design:] Comes with Hello Kitty’s signature and logo!

Close up back view of the Hello Kitty snowboard, it has a pink background with a pink strip in the center along with Hello Kitty’s signature and logo. And on the bottom it says, “Everybody Gets to Shine Sometime”

For the past day, I have been so excited about going snowboarding. I am completely prepared for my first snowboarding experience tomorrow!! Lake Tahoe, here I come <3

This year we decided to stay away from the traditional gingerbread house. We finally settled on a Hello Kitty inspired gingerbread house :] Gingerbread house making is always a lot of fun especially when you work together with friends and family. You create happy memories and frustrating times while debating how the house should be structure.
