“This was a really eventful week! I had coffee with a few other Tokyo-based bloggers (Universotokyo and The Spendy Pencil). I’m hoping to get something of a blogging community going here, so please let me know if you read any Tokyo-based blogs that I need to check out.
I also hosted a KitchHike lunch for a mom’s group. I had 5 wonderful women and their 5 adorable babies over for an arepa lunch. It was slightly chaotic in happiest way!
We rounded out the week with a lovely dinner with friends at the beautiful Nodaiwa, a restaurant that specializes in unagi. I hope the rest of January is as great as this week was!”
*In love with these pretty little etched monogrammed glasses with a silver rim. And they’re surprisingly affordable!
*Baby bloomin’ onions. Absolutely brilliant.
*I’m a little obsessed with preserved lemons, but sometimes I don’t have a stash ready to go. I pinned this shortcut to quick-preserving lemons for one of those days.
“You guys! Hawaii! It’s so great. Seriously. I have so much to say! I’m compiling a travel post for you all about the trip and my favorites (…and a not-so favorite or two), but here’s a brief sneak peek: GET SOME KONA COFFEE, stat. There’s volcanic rock everywhere! It WILL be 30 degrees on Mauna Kea so, yes, it’s weird, but PACK A JACKET.
All that and more, coming soon! 😉 Right after I unpack this house. Did I mention I MOVED? I’m super duper excited to have tons more space, but whoa. Holidays and work and vacation and packing all at once sure does take it out of a girl. Have any great tips for stress-less unpacking and purging? If I had a genie, I’d be asking him for one perfectly minimalist household with about 1/4 of my current belongings, please.”
* Free printable goal sheets! I got goals, I know how to use them.
* I don’t know about you, but January always makes me super excited for tax season. (I know, I’m a weirdo.) I just discovered this tip that lets you easily find purchase records in your gmail inbox and it’s SO HELPFUL.
