Thanksgiving Dinner...

A late post but better late than never!  We were invited to our very first Thanksgiving a few weeks ago.   It was a brilliant night filled with lots of friends and so much yummy food!  Good times. 

We were each told to bring a dish so with twenty people each bringing something, that means a lot of food!   I think our lovely hosts were having leftovers for the rest of the week. 

I was feeling a bit ambitious so the Mr and I decided to bring 3 dishes - Mac and Cheese, Pecan Pie and Red Velvet Cupcakes. They all turned out quite well I think!  Unfortunately I did end up with a Thanksgiving burn on my hand, my Mac and Cheese turned out a bit too dry for my liking when I reheated it to take with us and I forgot to put in an egg in my first batch of cupcake mixture (yes I know now that it makes a massive difference*) #domesticgoddessfail. 
Recipe links below for those interested.

 *luckily the Mr showed off his baking skills by whipping up the second batch.

Music memories

I have the office to myself this afternoon so I can ditch the headphones and am turning up the music.

I used to be really up to date with music, read music blogs and keep up with new songs, artists, go to gigs.. but this has sort of faded out in the last few years. These days I seem to rely a lot on Spotify and their playlists and recommendations which is great for busy people!

But this afternoon I am feeling a bit nostalgic so reminiscing and playing some songs played at our wedding back in 2010 which is bringing back some beautiful memories.

Japan love...

Some friends of ours are currently holidaying in Japan (they were also our wedding photographers and have an awesome blog here. If you are getting married I definitely recommend them)...
Anyhow, I have been reading their tweets and status updates and am reminiscing and dreaming about Japan.  I spent a year in Sapporo on exchange whilst at uni and have visited Japan I think at least 4 other times... it has been about 2 years since my last visit so perhaps another one is due soon?!?!  There is just something about the place that I love - perhaps it is the memory of some amazing times, the delicious and unique food, the shopping or the wonderful people... I can't put my finger on it but you MUST get there if you haven't already.  
On shopping, some of my must visit stores are:

Uniqlo:  Your one stop shop for basics.  They have also partnered with many designers, companies, artists for the UT project - limited edition tshirts.   UT t-shirts are available in all Uniqlo stores but c…
