MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: NOVEMBER 26–DECEMBER 2, 2018!

A week getting into the festive spirit. We get a real live Christmas tree, eat some Japanese bbq, and I spend more time with my family as we wait for Snow.

Enjoy!

Good morning, unfortunately Snow report is still that he’s missing.

The new medication for my “moderate adult acne” has brought my eczema up on my cheeks, very dry, my skin very thirsty, but I’m hanging in there.

Super super yummy! A little pricey, but we picked some good cuts and probably could have had one less dish.

Untitled
Then we ventured over to Daiso so we could stock up on our advent calendar goodies.

I spent way longer picking out my items for the calendar than Zach did…hmmm, wonder what he got.

Walked around the rose garden after we shot, it was so fragrant and pleasant. My little cousin’s asked the rose garden volunteers what it takes to name a new rose, and they told them they had to pollinate and invent their own. They were up for the challenge.

Some questions that you may or may not feel inclined to answer? I have let this slip for a few weeks, but I always love reading your answers. So! Let’s do it. I invite you to answer in the comments:

  1. How was your week?
  2. What’s the best present you ever got?
  3. What’s a good last minute present idea?

  1. How was your week?
    It was alright! Lots of holiday events at work, and finishing up some freelance jobs. Mentally in a little funk, I’m worried about Snow, my parents, getting older and I think all those doom-like thoughts happen for me around the end of year anyways. Wow, too much.
  2. What’s the best present you ever got?
    I think I’ve already asked this, but still curious! I am still so appreciative of the backpack Zach gave me one year, it is the school backpack all kids wear in Japan. I mentioned that I wanted one when we watched Totoro together for the first time, and then *bam* it was mine a few months later. SO surprising and thoughtful.
  3. What’s a good last minute present idea?
    Hand-painted card? I have no idea, asking because I feel like I’m a terrible gift shopper…

Thank you for reading! Much love friends.

  1. I hope Snow returns! Also, it’s so hard to find good pubs and they’re even dying out in the UK!! So it’s rather sad, especially since they’re such a nice addition to a neighbourhood.

    How was your week?
    My week was all right. It felt rather long, tbh.

    What’s the best present you ever got?
    I’ve gotten so many good presents in my life! I got a handmade corset once, that was awesome.

    What’s a good last minute present idea?
    A journal and a nice pen.
