MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: SEPTEMBER 8 – 14
I attempt to cook more than usual with mild success, an overdue visit to LACMA, kimonos with squiggly delight, seeing Louis CK and experiencing a little rain (finally). That and more beyond the cut. Enjoy.

Untitled
Walking downstairs Monday morning was pretty confusing. Droplets of water? From the sky? We haven't had that in ages!

Untitled
It was so exciting to see a bit of water. We desperately need it in California.

Untitled
Now kiss.

Poker night! I actually played this time, and I got a STRAIGHT. THAT'S RIGHT. But of course I also lost first.

Untitled
Tuesday morning was the perfect time to shoot some more book shots for #NowReading. Our latest.

Untitled
Some tram action before it got too busy.

Untitled
On Wednesday I enjoyed a really interesting talk by a UX designer named Jared Spool. Talk was called "Experiencing Delightful Content". Definitely check out his talks if you're into design. And there was pizza.

Untitled
Also went to a tapestry lecture. Lots of big tapestry shows happening in the US in the next year.

Untitled
Attempting to work a poop emoji into a report.

Untitled
Hit my 150th gym visit! Woot.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
As I left the Getty that evening, I was struck by the sunset. Like, dang! Calm down skies.

Untitled
Framed.

Untitled

Perfect time to walk down the hill.

Untitled
Bumped into my colleague who (while sick) went out to get balloons for a photoshoot. He was returning after 8 PM, crazy dude.

I hate being the last car on my floor of the garage, so scary.

Untitled
The next morning I woke up with a sore throat *Noooooooooo*

Untitled
Tweedy looked mildly concerned and then went right back to staring out the window.

Untitled
I get into work and I see the infamous balloons, but he's out sick. *Sickness let us go!!!*

Untitled
I'm ready for the day.

Untitled
Wasn't feeling 100%, left work around 3:30. That was enough time to get dinner prepped in my baby.

Untitled
Slow cooked chicken seasoned with cayenne and pepper in a green salsa. YUM!

Untitled
Cute idiot

Untitled
I took a lot of medicine and thought "yeah, I feel okay" and went out with Zach and Eli to a comedy show that is upstairs in a Chinese restaurant. The room got so hot, I felt like I was gonna faint…

Untitled
Escaped to the bathroom, feeling like death.

Untitled
Waiting at the doorway for the rest of the set. *Take me home plz*

Untitled
Woke up Friday feeling like 85% okay. I promised a friend we'd go hiking earlier in the week, so I thought. Okay. Fresh air will be good for me. (And got to see Cash, her delicious kitty boy)

LOOK HOW GORGEOUS

Untitled
Hitting up a new trail over in Arcadia

Untitled
It was 80% shaded and flat, which was great for me. Taking it easy.

Untitled
Untitled
The trail had these huge boulders along the path. And a bunch of cabin housing. I wonder if peeps live out there.

Untitled
We reached the end of the trail. It was supposed to be a waterfall, but alas…drought.

Still a good hike. And the last stretch of switchbacks to get out…is hard…and therefore means you deserve to eat out.

Untitled
Untitled
Fancy mall pho

Untitled
For dinner I whipped up some spicy sausage pasta, avocado garlic toasts and a spinach salad.

Untitled
Egg scramble and bacon for brekkie!

Untitled
And a smoothie with some grapes that were kind of on their way out. Grapes, raspberry and spinach! Not bad.

Untitled
Gabby came over and we waited for Zach before heading out to the Los Angeles Country Museum of Art. Wine in the afternoon on the porch, hello Saturday.

Not drunk, just weird.

Untitled
Tweedy looking guilty for sitting in the water trickling from my freshly watered tomatoes.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Here to see the John Altoon show before it closes.

Untitled
Untitled
I've only seen his Ocean Park paintings, as OCMA owns one that I'm familiar with. Saw a bunch of his illustrative work, love it.

Untitled
A new Sam Durant installation as well

Gabby and Bradford

Untitled
And finally got to see Kimonos of Modern Japan!

Untitled
RIIIIGHT?!?!

Untitled
Gorgeous show. If you're in LA, you can see with with the price of general admission ($15).

Untitled
And the Japanese Pavilion is awesome on its own.

Untitled
Gabby and Burden

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Zach runs errands and we play Wii U!

Untitled
Untitled
Went into work on Saturday eve, the last of the concerts series was happening.

It's always exciting to see visitors enjoying the site.

Untitled
Peeps milling about before Kan Wakan goes on.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Kan Wakan, check 'em out. They are a pretty mellow sound with soothing vocals.

Untitled
Don't be fooled by my smiling, I actually cried because my local deli is now officially closed. *Are you kidding me* One of my favorite comforting places to eat. IT'S GONE. *Tears* A special place closed after 52 years in business. Sigh.

Untitled
Last bowl of matzo ball soup.

Untitled
Untitled
DISNEYLAND SUNDAY! WOOO! And I've never taken the monorail into the park before, that was fun.

Untitled
Rode a bunch of random stuff that I usually don't. Alice and Wonderland just re-opened, so we checked it out.

Untitled
Untitled
It's um…pretty much the same? We also did ghost galaxy (aka Halloween time Space Mountain)

Untitled
Scary scary Pinocchio ride.

Untitled
Untitled
THEN saw Mickey and the Magical Map which had POCAHONTAS, MULAN and Tiana. POCAHONTAS!!!! MY FAV. They put all the non-white Princesses in a show about "being different" hmmm. Too bad that's the only place to see Pocahontas and Mulan around the park that I've seen, but still exciting to see them. The little girl in me squealed. And hopefully little mixed girls now can squeal too.

Untitled
Also went on It's a Small World. Which for some reason got my really really excited about my month long European romp coming up!

Untitled
A stop at the Lego store, cause why not.

Untitled
Then meeting up with friends who were chilling at ESPN zone in Downtown Disney to see the football games. ESPN zone is insane.

Untitled
ESPN zone even has TVs in the bathroom stalls. Yeah.

Untitled
Then to Oddball Comedy & Oddities Fest.

Untitled
I didn't know there'd be oddities till I saw this sword swallowing madness.

Untitled
The boyos are disgusted? Unimpressed? Not sure.

Untitled
Main stage with the majestic mountains behind.

Untitled
5 hours of comedy. My face hurt. So sleepy.
Here's who we saw if you're interested! http://www.oddballfest.com/tour-dates/ <–Hover over Irvine line up and you'll see (And also Dave Chappelle was a surprise guest closer!)

*Whew*

I'm sleepy. My cheeks hurt. My throat still hurts. Help.

Much love friends.
