any college kid would be jealous

It's time to talk about our Sasebo bathroom. Granted, this is our temporary apartment and the next place may be 10x better or worse. Considering we pick the next place, I doubt it will be the latter.

First off, we LOVE our toilet. We had this toilet in Hawaii on our honeymoon, and it was spectacular. When I was in school, Dr. Brandon did her best to describe a bidet, but they are just the type of thing you must experience. Being an American I quivered at the thought of water shooting up at me from down under...but at the risk of getting too graphic, I will just say, bidet's just prove that cleanliness is definitely next to godliness.

Thank goodness for symbols. Everything here is operated by a button, and it is very handy.

The only thing we can't figure out about or toilet, is the water spout at the it clean water? or is it recycled water? is that where we are supposed to wash out hands? who yo know?

The shower. The shower is something we can only call triple the awesomeness. At first step you are in the shower, which has the most powerful shower head with the softest feeling water. Next comes the sink which you can have running at the same time as the shower, by it's self, or you can rotate the faucet to fill up the bathtub as you shower. This all sounds very complicated, and it was, until we figured out that as long as you keep the control knob on faucet mode you won't accidentally turn on the shower when all you want to do is brush your teeth. Brandon is in heaven. He has dreamed of an efficient way to shave for as long as I've known him, and finally after all of those years of the suction cups on the "fog proof" mirror giving out mid shave...he has won!

Just for fun, here are some other shots of the apartment.


We don't really even acknowledge the kitchen. Luckily Brandon is spending so much time at work that he doesn't have time to get sad. We are currently using it to store things and hoping our next place has at least 4 burners...


This is our sleeping loft and futon mat. It would fit a full size mattress perfectly, but then we would only be a foot from the ceiling, and if I could describe how much it hurts to hit your head on the ceiling you would understand why we wont be doing that. We just keep saying to ourselves...nice and cozy.

It's so insane the things we have explored in this first year of marriage and we have so much to look back on and be proud of, but we do miss our bed though!
**I forgot to mention another great thing about the toilet. You know when you get up in the middle of the night and cringe at the thought of sitting on the toilet seat for fear it will freeze your rear end worries here! This amazing contraption has an automatic heated seat! Oh yes, I can feel the jealousy seeping out of your pores.

  1. This reminds me of some of the bathroom experiences we had when we traveled in Europe where they don't believe in washcloths, some bathrooms did not have a light, or the shower was outside the bathroom....and next to the bed. Yours actually appears quite decent.
