MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: JULY 28 – AUGUST 3
An experimental video, life brings us back together in Orange, #steaknight and faux-sophistication, and super delicious shrimp tempura. This week had ups, and downs, but the through line was the lovely people I get to call friends. IT'S TRUE OKAY. Enjoy!

Trying something out with video, just cause! There were some sounds, sights and movement I thought would be fun to capture. I've been recording other little clips, will try to do little 30 second glimpses if they are fun to watch! Let me know your thoughts. Sorry if I'm like soooooooooooooooo boring and too self-absorbed (cause really??? A video about my week??!?!) I know I know. *Whew* *okay*

Monday night was just begging to be a semi-homemade pizza night.

IMG_2831
Dirty shirt, Zach, the usual

IMG_2832
Tweedy trying to get in on some salad

Baby sat the neighbor's children, had a mad-drawing and painting sesh with the 6-year-old neighbor's daughter in the middle of the kitchen floor.

IMG_2833
Tweedy?

The next morning the light was particularly blue and dramatic

IMG_2835
My favorite soup at the Getty! Green chile pozole okay OKAY!

Nectarine from my farm box yum!

JAMES! Sleepin' over a few nights as he's between apartments.

And on my Wednesday off Yoko came to visit as well. My parents missed me, I guess, and they wanted to come to my neck of the woods for brunch.

George's! The best for breakfast near me.

IMG_3002
It's currently owned by a Korean woman, which means there is a great diversity in what you can get for breakfast and lunch. I got chorizo, eggs, rice and tortillas.

IMG_3003
My mom got a cheeseburger and fries, and my dad got a bulgogi platter.

IMG_3006
My gorgeous tomatoes are almost done producing fruit! 😦

Okay, this is my messy bedroom before I got a little crazy and moved stuff around by myself…

IMG_3011
IMG_3012
And after! I like it a LOT more. Something feels a lot cozier and comforting to me.

IMG_3013
PLUS the dogs can do this now and it's adorable

IMG_3014
Sweaty from moving stuff around. (Yeah, I stubbornly moved the whole dresser without taking clothes out of it or things off of the top)

IMG_3037
I spent the rest of the afternoon babysitting for different neighbors. They have an adorable dog.

IMG_3038
Got home, tried out some bake-able ribs and made a lil' salad

IMG_3039
Kiki ate it and didn't die! (And it's picture worthy…kind of)

IMG_3040
Thursday. Thursday.

IMG_3041
IMG_3042
Ah, yes.

Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming…

IMG_3043
Where are my arms? I got this dress at a Goodwill that I attempted to document the whole experience for the blog. It's not very interesting, actually…

Carrying dinner

IMG_3044
Semi-fast food

IMG_3046
Gorgeous dusk on the way to Pasadena

IMG_3047
Here to see Stupid Fucking Bird! It's an adaptation of Chekhov's The Seagull and is just so well-written, performed, tragic, happy, fucked up, fucking smart and just really attempting something new. I don't know much about theater, for sure. But I very much enjoyed the performed reoccurring themes of human relationships.

Blah blah Sarah

IMG_3048
SUFI!!!!!!!!!!

IMG_3049
I get to work and they are hanging the employee art show up in our hallway

Scooterin' to my neighborhood's downtown area

IMG_3057
Hey not bad! Had some dinner, had some beer (it was International Beer Day heyyyyyyyy)

IMG_3058
And in the morning Tweedy FAILED at hiking.

Met up with a friend from college, and we couldn't even make it halfway up to Griffith Observatory…but it was quite cute to have the pups with us.

IMG_3059
And of course had to reward ourselves with the Mitsuwa food court deliciousness.

IMG_3060
Headed to Orange County…

IMG_3061
Haven't been here since Aryn's graduation. Weird.

IMG_3062
ALEX! Home from Oregon.

IMG_3063
Actually went out to Paul's, a college bar near campus. *Flashbacks* But it was a refreshingly fun evening with people who I don't see too frequently. I really enjoyed their company, and just really felt loved and like I was just *being*.

IMG_3064
IMG_3065
Jill reacting to my *adorable* kitty phone case haha

IMG_3066
The streets of Orange…YEAH it started RAINING. NUTS.
Weird that this place went from day-to-day nothing, to painfully nostalgic, to sadly tragic, and now to …well, I'm not sure. I know it's none of the previous.

IMG_3067
IMG_3068
So…Sunday morning, getting psyched for a "family dinner"

Bust out the patterns

IMG_3069
STEAKNIGHT! #

IMG_3070
IMG_3071
Got a little fancy

IMG_3072
Got a little schmancy

IMG_3073
And we went all out on some steaks, potatoes, and greens!

IMG_3074
Good old fashion apartment cooking

IMG_3076
IMG_3075
With wine of course

IMG_3077
Steak, roasted red potatoes (with rosemary from my herb garden!), and a kale/baby spinach salad. So lovely! Props to Kiki for being steakmaster.

IMG_3078
And of course finishing the week and evening with a lil' game of Settlers.

Here's some bonus footage of the 4 of us on a rollercoaster from last week's time at Knott's Berry Farm. This was my favorite rollercoaster when I was growing up! And it feels even faster now. Sorry…if you have headphones in the screaming might be loud? *Warning!*

Much love friends.
