Sometimes during the weekend, Bryce and I go to Barnes & Noble and just walk around.  It’s fun.  I LOVE walking around and browsing!

On our most recent trip, Bryce got caught up in the graphic novel section (which we all know is just a fancy word for comics).  So I left him because I didn’t want to just stand around looking silly and ventured into a section I never went to before.

The cook books!

And I found such cute things.  Would you believe they weren’t related to cupcakes or doughnuts at all??  I know.  Amazing.

I actually found books about preparing creative (and super cute) bentos!  For those of you who don’t know what a bento is, it’s basically a home cooked meal that is packed in little containers common in Japanese cuisine.  What usually goes into a bento is rice and some sort of protein along with cooked or pickled vegetables.  Sounds boring right?  They usually are.  But look what I found!

Isn’t it just the cutest thing ever?  Could you eat those?  I’m not entirely sure I’d be able to.

There’s also this one for the cartoon lover:

When I showed Bryce these books I told him I’d totally make these for our kids.  And he said, “Hey what about me??”  He’s such a big kid, which I love about him.  I said if we were married now I might consider it. 😛

Jokes like those are common among us, but I think it’s funny how we think about these things (like having kids) when it won’t be happening for years.  I love it though.

And I’m loving these bento books.  Check them out if you want to liven up your daily lunches!
