I bought another bathing suit!

I'm super excited because it is exactly three weeks until we arrive at our warm destination. One way to express my excitement is to browse Japanese clothing websites and find a cute, yet unique suit. I love one pieces, I feel like they are really sexy, but it's hard to find one that's a.) under $160 and b.) one in my size. I don't know why companies assume just because you're a size 2, means you want to show everything you have.

If you click on it you can see all of the angels and awesome pictures of the suits. I bought the pink and brown one, and it's arriving in 3 business days.

long time no posts...

a.k.a. this entry will be pic heavy
It has been a while since I posted. I've been extremely busy with fun family activities, snowboarding, skiing, and of course, eating. Luckily, I didn't gain any holiday weight with our vacation right around the corner. Yay! ^.~
I had some fun holiday adventures trying to cook some Japanese dishes, first, I made kani udon (udon noodles with crab) for my husband one day.

here is the HUGE crab leg. Crabs are spiders of the sea, I wonder if spiders taste as good as crabs...hmmm..

the finished product.

On Christmas we started our tradition for the first time, EVER! We made Crepes! I love crepes, because they aren't too sweet and with Japanese style crepes you can pretty much stuff anything in them, ranging from fruit, to even raw fish. Yummy ^.^

This was our little crepe station we set up, I melted down some 72% dark coco from ghirardelli and drizzled it on our crepes.

Then it was my mother-in-laws birthday, so we made crepes again. My sister-in-law also made a German pancake, I fell in love with it and I want to make it on my own. It wasn't very sweet, it had a touch of powdered sugar on it, and I had it with fruit and really good maple syrup.

For Hiromi's birthday I decided to make a Japanese cake, Japanese cakes are very tedious because they are so precise. Instead of measuring it out by cups, Japanese recipes call for weight, which I am use to because of school, and I prefer to bake in oz and g's, it reads for more accurate nutritional intake. My sister-in-law helped me bake it, and I decorated it. Thank you Heidi! <3

end result. :3

Now that I look at this entry, all of these recipes were foreign haha. The key for me this holiday was to not over indulge, I ate until I was satisfied, and I ate a variety of foods. Also, I hate eating past 6 p.m. :3.
What are some of your food habits you have?
Happy eating~ xoxox
