MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: JULY 7 – 13
A week of visiting friends, tea time, broken glass, a bloody nose, time with nature, and of course dogs.
Lots going on and less sleep than usual, but it's fun RIGHT?!?!?!?! Enjoy!

I wore my hair down for once. Received many remarks about my haircut. I guess I really don't wear it down that often. I'd like it to be shorter…but the stray hairs on the back of my neck are so miserable in the summer.

IMG_1436
Convergences at the Getty Center! If you're in LA, you should pop over to see a few of the summer shows. 🙂

IMG_1437
Mr. Charlie! This half-pug was so cuuuuuuuuuute. He's just a puppy! Gabby was pet-sitting.

IMG_1438
So naturally we took the pups to the dog park.

IMG_1439
SUFI never socializes with other dogs. He just runs around and gets pet by all the people. *sigh*

IMG_1440
Sufi's future kingdom

IMG_1441
Time for a clean up party. Mad scrub down.

IMG_1442
Hair be in loop-de-loops

IMG_1443
The view from the Hollywood Hills! Not bad! Just another reminder of how flat LA is.

IMG_1444
This restaurant has a little Japanese garden you can walk through. Met a calico cat.

IMG_1445
Trying to be cute.

IMG_1446
Can't match patterns. And my shoes are literally always covered in dog hair. But I tried. Love my granny flower jacket.

IMG_1447
Sunny days.

No idea where he learned that.

IMG_1457
My mom and I went to Goodwill. I've been itching for a few new items. I ultimately got a dress, 2 tops, a skirt, and a jacket for $24! Noooot bad. Should have taken a photo of everything together.

IMG_1460
Waldos

IMG_1461
My mom wanted to check out the Paseo, which is just a huge shopping center in Pasadena. If you were a cool kid growing up (I was not), you'd probably hang at the Paseo.

IMG_1462
Shoes on clearance that could either be … worn by ladies on a yacht or potentially cute?

IMG_1463
MY BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

IMG_1496
And while by home, you must eat too much garlic at the Boiling Crab.

IMG_1497
Crab all in the belly.

IMG_1498
Blockheads! So thrilled they opened one right across the street from the Boiling Crab. It's like shaved "snow" or icecream. Lighter in texture than icecream, but creamier than shaved ice.

IMG_1499
Yei.

IMG_1500
Weird face but in one of my new shirts! It looks like a rice pattern.

IMG_1501
Cones waiting for the elevator

IMG_1502
This wall always reminds me of my south pas home

IMG_1503
Ghostin. I always wear this huge backpack around when I go to the gym and I'm sure everybody thinks I'm really unprofessional. I just have stinky gym clothes! Why would I throw them in a huge bag!

IMG_1504
Gabby is waiting for me at the top of my steps.

IMG_1505
My peaches

IMG_1506
These weekly photos always remind me that the Santa stocking Gabby gave me for Christmas is still up

IMG_1507
Making spicy italian pasta for the girls

IMG_1508
Woke up with a bloody nose. Haven't had one in so long…maybe it's the fan constantly blasting on my face.

IMG_1509
Tweedy sleeps in longer than I do

IMG_1510
Somebody left an embarrassing mess on the side of the road

IMG_1563
Werk in the galleries

IMG_1564
Alter ego?

IMG_1565
Had to get in the car through the back right side. I blame both of us.

IMG_1566
At the pet store near me grabbing treats for the pups and I NOTICE THE KITTENS. I DIDN'T KNOW THEY HAD KITTENS HERE.

IMG_1567
And right next to the pet shop is a delicious deli. Got to have the matzo ball soup.

IMG_1568
IMG_1569
I make my way over to Hollywood for some quality time with Alan, Alyssa, Bryan, Joe, Marie, and Lenore. Alyssa and Lenore were visiting for the weekend.

IMG_1616
The next morning I wake up eeeaaarllyy (for me) around 6:15 so I can be out the door by 6:30. BUT DRAMA. I broke the coffee pot *nooooooooooooooo*

IMG_1617
Though the excitement over my new hiking backpack (equipped with a water pack and straw) is enough to motivate me.

IMG_1618
I have some builder's tea instead.

IMG_1619
I grab Kiki by 7, and we're off to Malibu. About 45 minutes later we're on the trail on the way to Escondido Falls.

IMG_1620
I recommend this hike to anybody who doesn't want an uphill battle. It's shady and quiet, and doesn't really do anything crazy.

IMG_1621
There's two waterfalls (normally). Here's the first one. Well. Here's where it SHOULD be. From here the hike does get rigorous. But the path is short to the next fall. You just have to rock climb and hold on to ropes to help you up the trail.

IMG_1622
The hills have eyes

IMG_1623
Gorgeous views of the mountains!

IMG_1624
And here's the second falls. 😦 It's normally gorgeous and mossy and green, but here it is all dried out. STUPID DROUGHT. I hope it doesn't fall apart too much.

IMG_1633
I'm an embarrassing person I guess.

IMG_1625
You can hike up into the first little "mouth". I recommend getting to this trail around 7:45, by the time you're out it'll be like…9:45/10. And lemme tell you, people will be POURING in.

IMG_1626
We really wanted fish tacos after the hike, but the place didn't open til 10:30. We stopped off at El Matador beach to check out the rocks.

IMG_1627
I wish I had my swim suit on!

IMG_1628
Awkward photoshoots. I JUST WANTED TO CLIMB ROCKS not witness this mess.

IMG_1629
Neptune's Net! It's a pretty famous spot. I totally remember coming here senior year of high school when my friends and I did OSS (Outdoor Science School) and we were cabin leaders for 5th graders. We had an afternoon off and all ate here. So weird to be back!

IMG_1630
I got fish tacos (comes with 3!) and Kiki got fish and chips. Very tasty.

IMG_1631
I changed out my shower curtain to this grey patterned one. I like it.

IMG_1632
My little tomato plant is still growing strong! The tomatoes are turning orange in color now.

IMG_1634
And I HAD TO BUY $1.50 FLIPFLOPS FROM TARGET cause my awesome ones I got from palm springs are falling apart. NOOOO.

IMG_1635
By the afternoon I was so exhausted I fell asleep outside on the bench. Ugh. So dazed and confused.

IMG_1636
All my best friends.

IMG_1637
Finally got around to putting up curtains in the work room.

IMG_1638
And then I got dressed, put on new shirt #2 and headed to meet up with Alyssa!

IMG_1639
We all met up at this sushi place that does happy hour ALL the time. How do they profit from this?

IMG_1640
Friends and sushi…

IMG_1641
And agedashi tofu. *Ahh*

IMG_1642

Back to Alan's place where gin and tonics and dancing to Beyonce were on the menu.

Walking to a bar in West Hollywood is always fun

IMG_1659
Bye Alyssa! Have a great time abroad in Spain. You teach that english.

IMG_1660
I scurry to the market. Always have to have my snacks for work.

IMG_1661
If I ever have a place with a raised ceiling. I'm going to do a full lamp display.

IMG_1662
Shrimp chips for the car ride home…and then a looooong night of relaxing.

Much love friends.
