A very Happy New Year to you all! I debated whether to make this a year of favourites or just stick with December, but since I did discover some super cool things this month I decided to stick to that.

Here’s what I’ve been loving:

    Love that mug, fun fact up until a few years ago I totally thought Jackalopes were real, I remember seeing a taxidermy one when I was a kid and always thought that they were a legit thing. I gotta get me some of those oreos we never get any of the awesome flavours here in the U.K. I’ll have to stock up next time I’m in the U.S. xoxo

      I first encountered Jackalopes in the April fool’s edition of Ranger Rick magazine. I’ve thought they were cool ever since.

    If the ‘Mariko’ at the beginning of the vid is your husband, please give him a high five for me for being awesome. That was hilarious!!

    I think my hubs would die of happiness with Gingerbread Oreos…I wonder if they have them in the states?? I’ve never looked as I don’t buy Oreos often (I tend to have no off button with Oreos, and can eat an entire package in about three days :D).

      Rick has received your high five, and smiled bashfully. You would not believe the cajoling it took to get him on camera, despite him doing his best “Gamerwife” impression every chance he gets. And yes, you can get Gingerbread Oreos in the states. The packaging is a little different (I think this year it is yellow), but the yumminess is the same.

    I am OBSESSED with mind of a chef! The episode where they slow roasted a pig outside was my favorite. SO good.

      I love me some food porn, even better when it involves BBQ.

    Oh my god that opening was Hilarious go Rick! The mug is awesome. I found out I was allergic to dairy this year and stopped eating chocolate which was sooo hard and awful but then I discovered that a lot of dark chocolate over 70% is often made with soy, free of dairy! I know you have a lot of things you can’t eat so not sure if soy is on or off that list but if it is and you like dark chocolate there is hope! Though I must say since discovering this I have probably gained all the weight I lost from my chocolate withdrawals 😛 so be warned!

      My chocolate allergy is actually separate from my dairy allergy, so all chocolate: pure, white, milk, etc. is out for me. However, I’ve been allergic to chocolate since I was 3 years old, so I never really developed a taste for it.

    That mug is perfect <3 And I'm a huge fan of the Gingerbread Oreos. I picked some up on clearance at Target earlier this week!

      Oof. Last time I was at Target they had them on sale (2 for $4) and Rick was astonished I only bought one box. I had to tell him it was because I was afraid I’d eat both of them in one sitting (as it was, the one box I got didn’t even last the week). :p

      Thanks, Jane! I never got into Gundam myself, but giant interlocking robots will never not be cool in my book! Here’s to an amazing year for you and Yangkyu!
