Trippy time zones and a sushi experience

Sweater, Belt: J.Crew Factory; Skirt: Downeast Basics; Tights: c/o We Love Colors; Shoes: Buffalo Exchange

I'm a little weirded out by this time zone difference. I wake up on Saturday morning, and everybody on Twitter is talking about how its Friday afternoon. Trippyyyy... This is why my blog schedule has been very strange. I don't like the idea of late afternoon blogging... but for me, it's early morning blogging... My mind just exploded. 

The other night, we went to an authentic Japanese sushi bar. (It is authentic because... it's in Japan.) It was a very small mom-and-pop type place. The owners were an elderly husband and wife team. There were three other customers in there, who we could tell were 'regulars'. I think they were all thrilled to have us around. I don't think they speak to foreigners that often... so they found us quite fascinating. It is fun to be fascinating. The guy to my left kept watching every single thing I did, and the lady with him called us "kawaii". I've always wanted to be kawaii! 

Today, Matt and I are going to take the train into town, eat at a little French bakery for breakfast, and run some errands. And it's freezing and maybe raining out. I guess that's what I get for flaunting my warm Arizona winters these past couple months, huh? Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. I know, it is so weird having such a huge time zone difference! I love your skirt, in fact, I just thrifted one like it a couple of weeks ago because it reminded me of you!

  9. The ruffles on the neckline are so cute. I'm always fascinated with time zones, don't really know why. But it's so enchanting that someone is living tomorrow or vice-versa.

  18. Aw, you are definitely kawaii, haha! :) I'm loving all of these Japan posts. It must be so exciting! I know that Will and I are getting excited and planning our move to Oregon and it's only a few states up from AZ. (Well, loosely planning, I should say; the move wouldn't be until December 2012/January 2013.) Oh and I hope your sushi experience was better than mine, haha.

    Anyways! Sorry for rambling! You look adorable like usual! I'm loving that floral skirt and skinny belt.

    Have fun and stay warm!

  19. you are kawaii. hehe. that's cute that they were happy to have you there because I've heard that Japanese people hate foreigners and that's part of why the human trafficking is soooo horrible there.
