Today I have for you all another life update post, also known as my Currently post. I've been so into all the Holiday festivities and so much excitement has been brewing for Christmas. There's been so many things I've been currently loving and planning this month. Even though I've been extremely busy at work, today I decided to update you all, lets get into my currently...
I've seriously been loving all of the great things that come with this Holiday season. I love all of my Christmas decoration, by the way I'll soon be posting a post of my Christmas decor. I also love my theme for my wrapping. I've gone very rustic and used brown wrapping paper, twine, and some Mason Jar Lids Wreath Ornaments that I DIYed. I also loved that Ricky and I have finish all of our Christmas shopping. I think this is the first year I have finished this early. Thank you for online shopping! 
Couple months ago I raved about my Grande Iced Caramel Macchiato w/ an additional pump of Pumpkin Spice from Starbucks. However, currently I am obsessed over their Caramel BrulĂ©e Latte (Hot). Since it's been extremely cold lately and even raining, I've been drinking this coffee even more. There's something special about a warm cup of coffee on a cold morning. Another thing I've been currently obsessed with is Sushi. I'm a sushi lover. I love all kinds of sushi, actually take that back. I kind of still don't really like Unagi, but anyways, for some reason I've been craving sushi so much. Ricky and I try not to eat sushi too often for multiple reason but this month we've gone twice already! Normally he's okay going once or every other month, so going twice in the same month, and in the same week was very surprising. The first place we went to was our favorite sushi shop Ozu Sushi. What I love about this place is that they have delicious specialty sushi rolls. One of my favorite is their 49ers roll. I don't know what the name has to do with the roll but this is my favorite roll. I won't go too much into the details about the roll because I think I'll be sharing with you all a She & Him Adventures: Ozu Sushi, later in the future. The second place we visited was Sushirrito. Ricky and I use to go all the time to the Sushirrito in San Francisco. We had totally forgot that they opened a location here in San Jose. We went earlier this week and we both had their Salmon Samba, an Oven-Baked Agave-Soy Salmon Sushirrito with Tempura Asparagus, Namasu Cucumber, Green Leaf Lettuce, Ginger Guac, Pepitas, Wasabi Dust and Teri-Mayonesa. It was so good! I use to only order their Sumo Crunch but this time, Ricky told me to try the Salmon Samba. I am so glad I did, it was so delicious and I can't wait to go back. 
Since it's the most wonderful time of the year, I am currently watching some of my favorite Christmas movies. You should follow my Countdown to Christmas Movies and get into the Holiday spirit by watching one Christmas movie every day until Christmas. I've been having so much fun watching all of these Christmas movies at night, especially with a cup of hot chocolate. Another thing I've been enjoying watching besides Christmas movies is The Crown. This lavish, Netflix original drama showcase the life of Queen Elizabeth II from the 1940s to modern times. The series begins with an inside look at the early life of the queen, who became queen at age of 25 after the death of her father, King George VI. I've always been intrigued with the royal family and the royalty bloodline. Randomly one night, I played the first episode and quickly became obsessed. I can't wait for season two. 
It's weird I'm here talking about Lady Gaga again. However this time I am not talking about her acting in AHS, I am here to talk about her music. I am currently in love with her song 'Perfect Illusion.' Her vocals in this song are amazing. I also love that my Tame Impala bae Kevin Parker comes out in the club scene in a decked out in a 70s-style gold jacket. Parker not only did a cameo in her video but he also co-produced the track. The next artist I been currently listening to is Childish Gambino. He recently released his new album, Awaken, My Love! I am loving this album. His album is so different and I love the soul vibes I get when I hear it. My top 3 favorite songs are 'Redbone', 'Me And Your Mama', and 'Baby Boy'. If you haven't heard any of the song I've mentioned I recommend you should. I've linked each title so you can have easy access to the song.
Next month is my Birthday and I've been wanting to go to Disneyland since October. However, I couldn't find the perfect week for Ricky, so I decided to wait for my birthday. Ricky and I originally wanted to go on a weekend however, my birthday falls on a Tuesday. Right now, we  are deciding if we want to go the weekend before or after my birthday. We are leaning more towards the week after since the Main Street Electrical Parade starts on the 20th and I really want to see it. However, I know the park will be extremely busy since it will be the first weekend of the new parade and it is also the start of their Lunar New Year celebration. It's going to be a really busy weekend and I kind of don't want to go when there's even more people than usual. Oh and the weekend before my birthday is also the Star Wars Half-Marathon at Disneyland, so that definitely another busy weekend. I really don't know when to go at this point but we are planning to go soon. 
Something I am currently really looking forward to is all of the Christmas gatherings. I can't wait to gather with my family on Christmas eve and eat a ton of tamales and open up presents. I can't wait to go to Ricky's parents house and give them their gifts which they are not expecting at all. I also can't wait to go to my job's Christmas dinner. This is the first year that my boss will be hosting it at his house and not a restaurant. We are also doing a Christmas exchange between my coworkers, my boss and his family. I am really looking forward to seeing everyone's reactions when they open up their secret Santa gifts. It should be sweet and funny. 

Well I hope you enjoyed reading this Currently post. I love this wonderful time of the year. It makes me so jolly and excited for Christmas.
