Wow, boy did I let this thing get behind. By my calculations I owe 10 blog for the year, and you better believe I will pay them back in full. While my original resolution was an astounding failure, I still want to try and salvage it. This is the first post in the mid-year revival.
This won’t have much content: 1. Because it’s late and I’m very tired. 2. Because pictures will make up for it!
I went to Mitsuwa with Lauren yesterday. If you are scratching your noggin as to what Mitsuwa is don’t fret; I will explain. It’s basically this giant Japanese market/bakery/bookstore/food court in Arlington Heights/Elk Grove. It’s one of my favorite places and I like to make as many trips to as I can, which usually results in every other month or so. The inner Japanophile gets a hold of me and won’t let go until it is satiated.
Here is some pictures from the excursion!
Sometimes happiness is a piping hot bowl of Ramen.
Azuki Beans with Soft and Hard Server Ice Cream. Dee-lish.
Do you know what time it is?
My payload from the trip included:
- Ramen (worth the trip by itself)
- Calpis (Bottle and Can)
- Ramune (Bottle)
- Hapi (Chili Bits and Peanuts, My favorite Japanese Snack)
- Recent issue of Famitsu (Video Game Magazine from Japan)
- 3 Navy Blue 0.5 mm Pens (Favorite pens that I can only find there, I can’t even find them online!)
I cleaned up pretty good for being on a limited budget.
We also trekked to Ikea in Schaumburg which is only about 7 minutes away if you don’t go the opposite way of the directions which I did many times. ^_^; While I have no pictures, that place is amazing. I could spend all day in there and not even see everything. I want to buy pretty much all my furniture from them. Overall, super fun time, spent with super fun girlfriend! 1 down, 9 to go. I will catch up!
