How's it hanging!
I thought I'd do a quick rundown on life in July.
At the first of the month, Grandma, Grandpa, and Austin came to visit. And we all had a grand time!
Then Hailey went to the dr for a check up.  She is now 40'' tall!
We have started planning Baby B's 1st birthday!  Where does the time go?!
Matt has officially been working at Petco for 6 months and hopefully will soon go through the training to be a full groomer.
We'll still trying to figure out our family's next step.  Where to move, what do to.  All that jazz.
I thought I had more to say, but I think I forgot haha.  If I remember, I will come back and update!

Top 10 Anime Crushes

I thought it would be fun to make a top 10 list of my anime crushes.
One guy per show/manga
Has nothing to do with how badass or epic they are, merely my "attraction"
MY opinion :)
#10 Soushi Miketsukami from Inu x Boku SS
He is a fox demon, his eyes are beautiful, and he is super protective.  Not to mention he has a sword!
Now, he's a little obsessive, but he's still cute!
#9 Mamoru Chiba from Sailor Moon
Now, I prefer Manga version better....but in both he is kind of useless.  That is why he is so low on this list considering he was my very first anime crush ever.  Will always love him, but lets hope he becomes a little more useful in Sailor Moon Crystal
#8 Tomoya Okazaki from Clannad
He is super funny and really sweet.  He doesn't fight any kind of mythical battle, since this anime is a 'slice of life', but he does help his friends with their personal battles.  He is also super sweet to *SPOILERS* his girl Nagisa and their daughter Ushio. 

#7 Saito Hiraga from The Familiar of Zero
He is also a sword wielder who protects his girl.  He can actually use any weapon with his special 'tattoo' from being Louise's familiar.
I really like him, even though sometimes his loyalty comes into question with his perverted-ness 
#6 Ikuto Tsukiyomi from Shugo Chara
He is kind of a trouble maker who is very sly.  He saves Amu whenever she needs it.
He can kind of seem rude, but he tries to keep people away from him so they don't get hurt in his families drama.
He can sprout cat ears and apparently his hair feels like fur! Love him.  Even when he is being annoying haha.

#5 Kirito from Sword Art Online
The sweet, kickass Kirito.  He is an amazing sword wielder and can even duel wield.  He helps out people whenever he can and has an adorable smile.
And of course, he's a badass! 

#4 Takumi Usui from Kaichou wa Maid-sama
He is a rich, cute boy who is devoted to bugging and making his girl fall for him.
His one down flaw is also a plus....kinda.  He is good at pretty much everything.  Seems like he doesn't even have to try. But he looks good while doing it! And he's a total goofball
#3 Tamaki Suoh from Ouran High School Host Club
He is very similar to Takumi, but instead of being good at everything, he is an adorable idiot!  He is easily depressed, but just as easily entertained and super happy! 

#2 Inuyasha from Inuyasha
Even though he can be a jerk and denies he is in love as much as he can.  He also has a loyalty problem sometimes.  But in the end he knows where he belongs haha.
Also, those ears!  I just want to rub them!
#1 Syaoran Li from Tsubasa Chronicles
I know that he isn't really as epic as the others, even though he does in fact have a sword.  I don't know what it is about him really, but I am in love with him!  He is completely devoted to his girl.  So much so that he basically breaks every rule imaginable to save her life.  And his sweet face just gets me!  LOVE HIM!
Well, that's my Top 10 Anime Crushes.
Tell me, who is your anime crush?

Sailor Moon Crystal First Impressions

Sailor Moon Crystal episode 1 just went live!
I had to watch it ASAP (which was a little behind because my family is in town).
I really did like it, and it seemed much closer to the manga.
Her sailor outfit was defiantly more accurate, same with her attack....and man oh man I cannot wait until they start selling those toys!
Like I had stated before, I'm not really a fan of the way it is animated though.  It almost looks sloppy.  Her hair goes super crazy and her lips always look like they have lipstick on.  In most anime (not all, I know) girls who had lipstick on were either older, trying to be older, or in some profession.
I also dislike her transformation sequence quite a bit.  Not only does it make her hands and feet look huge, but it's all computer animated.  To me, it just doesn't fit.  It looks like two different shows spliced together.  I understand that they are probably trying to be up with the times and want it to look amazing, especially since they have to compete with the original.  I just, personally, with they hadn't gone computer.
But, like I said, it looks like the story will indeed be closer to the manga, without all the filler. 
From the beginning, it looks like Mamoru will indeed be a high school student this time around.  And I, indeed, did fangirl....a lot
So I did really like it, just not perfect.....but what is?
Go check it out!
