it's time for a random photo dump! i take pictures all the time of stuff we do and then find that a lot of them don't really deserve a whole post...so here you go. heh.
for one of their friends' birthdays, the bean got a bug up their butt to craft a handmade gift. i don't really know what the significance of the wombat is, but that's what they created - she has a scoop of ice cream on top of her head and she's sitting in a skillet with a deep dish chocolate chip cookie. i'm sure it's filled with all kinds of inside jokes, but i was just marveling over the bean's creativity because this was created with no pattern, not following a youtube video or online tutorial or anything like that. the bean just knew what they wanted it to look like and it turned out exactly as they'd envisioned:
one weekend while the hub was off doing stuff with his friends, the bean and i headed down to little tokyo for some shopping and a fun lunch at our favorite udon spot. they love a little shop out there called mokuyobi, which is a super cute shop filled with clothes and accessories in really bright colors and all made locally.
