I got so wrapped up in Crazy Mama Drama that I didn't even write about my yakatabune experience.
Roomie and I were invited to go on this yakatabune excursion back on the 9th. We met up with Mr. Big Bear and M-sensei and headed to the meeting spot where we were picked up by a large tour bus. There were about 30+ others on the bus already. We were given drinks and snacks as soon as we sat down, then we headed off to Tokyo.
The whole boat ride pretty much just consisted of eating and drinking. When we tired of that we could go up onto the roof of the boat and hang out. It was a fairly nice evening, especially with the breeze from the moving boat. Got lots of really nice pictures.
Also, just last night Roomie and I went over to Mama Ann's apartment, because she wanted me to show her how to make bibimbap. So we had a delicious dinner then rode our bikes over to the closest Aeon mall. I didn't plan on buying anything but there were some really good deals that would've been silly to pass up!
I had been wanting some jean capris for a while.. now that it's finally cooled off I probably won't get to wear them until next year, but they were marked down from ￥1980 to ￥980, plus an additional 30% off at the register, so they were only ￥600-something!
I've always been a one-bag kind of person... the thought of having to transfer everything from one bag to the other each day just seemed bothersome. BUT! This bag was cute, red plaid flannel material, and no leather handles or anything. Only ￥980. :)
And lastly.. Roomie was looking at baby clothes for her new nephew who's due in January, and I saw this and thought it was too cute! Normally I wouldn't've bought it, but it was on sale for only ￥100! It seemed too good to pass up. My reasoning was that someone I know will get preggers eventually, right? Well, if it's a boy then I've got part of a gift already bought! But for now, I guess it's just going to sit in the closet, lol.. Any takers??
