Happy Black Friday Friends! Mike and I are in Japan, traveling around the South so we’re missing out on all the Black Friday sales, but I’m not complaining because Japan is my jam and I am in heaven, eating ALL the things. We’re going to be here for a while and I could not be more excited. I just love Christmas in Japan. There are countless illuminations, Christmas music everywhere, and festive foods. I am crazy excited. If you guys have any must sees/must eats, please let me know!

And thank you, thank you for all your sweet comments on my last post! It warms my heart :) I’m going to reply to everyone, soon!


  1. These sweat suits are too hilarious! h/t to Mike for that one. Should he get one?!
  2. More and more cookbooks are starting to look like comics.
  3. I’m into it: more sci-fi in Hollywood.
  4. Gaming addiction and losing it all.
  5. CBCC! Even more addictive than PPAP :)
  6. I love Drake and T.Swift!!!
  7. I can’t imagine flying 24/7.
  8. Have you guys heard of Hatchimals?!
  9. Kinda excited to watch Gilmore Girls again…

Link Love:

  1. These steam scrambled eggs look so creamy and delicious.
  2. Fun funfetti donuts!
  3. These lattice cookie ice cream sandies with pumpkin pie ice cream!
  4. I love tortilla soup.
  5. I guess it’s soup season because this lentil soup is calling my name.

I’ve got my eyes on you:

  1. We absolutely wanted to buy a Classic NES but they sold out in seconds. Patiently waiting until Nintendo releases more.
  2. Kinda want to buy this for myself for Christmas because I love polaroid pictures.
  3. Super practical, but kind of romantic because Mike and I can charge our phones at the same time!

Lately on I am a Food Blog:

  1. Have you guys checked out this year’s Holiday Gift Guide? It’s full of fun stuff :)
  2. Give me all the crispy pan roasted lemon and dill brussel sprouts.
  3. I could eat crispy duck fat potatoes all day, every day.
  4. Fluffy Yorkshires/popovers and deep thoughts on what the difference is.
  5. Tipsy cake because let’s get turnt.

Happy almost December!

PS – If you wanna follow along our Japan trip, I’ll be posting mostly on our travel insta, The Les, when I get my act together. I’m actually really bad at the instant part of instagraming and all about the latergram!


  1. Such a great list of links this week! Omg, and those funfetti donuts, SWOON!

    Lurker here but OMG, you are in Japan! Current Kyoto resident here, would recommend Eikando temple (On a weekday is best. There’s just too many people on weekends). Bungalow is also a great pub near Shijo Horikawa. Enjoy your stay! :)

  3. Lori says:

    Eeee going to Japan in a little over a week and am very interested in what you have to recommend ;) Will be in Yokosuka, Tokyo, Sapporo, and Kyoto!
