MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: JANUARY 19 – 25, 2015!
I re-did my workspace and now I am so pleased with it. I also ate a lot of blue cheese, visited Ikea for the first time, went bowling, and wore my hair in little embarrassing buns way too frequently.

Enjoy!
And hope you're well.

THIS WEEK IN PHOTOS LAST YEAR: HERE!

Untitled
Monday was a holiday (Martin Luther King Jr. Day) which meant no work. This meant I could be a good dog mom and the take the boys out for a long adventure.

Untitled
I hope this series of Tweedy running is enough to blow your mind.

Untitled
Untitled
Kiki absorbing the sun and making sure doofy Sufi doesn't run away

Untitled
Untitled
Tweedy is adorable, but always gets pooped.

Untitled
Lazy afternoon after

Untitled
But then Kiki had the best idea for chili, adding a fried egg, cheese and some spicy buffalo sauce. Truly delicious.

We then played about 3-4 hours of the Mordor game on xbox.

Cut to noodle cam at Mitsuwa

Untitled
The three of us chipped in to buy 12.

Untitled
Mmm. Face nutrients.

Untitled
The night ended with a dramatic 2 firetruck/ambulance ordeal and smokey air. (Not at mine, but at the neighbors)

Untitled
Tuesday morning, some lovely light on my night stand while I enjoyed coffee

Untitled
Another foggy morning, happy to see rain!

Untitled

Gray sky at the Getty

Untitled
Caught my eye

Untitled
Another round of chili + fried egg

Untitled
Zach found a bowling alley nearby, but when we arrived it was CLOSED FOR RENOVATION! WAH! So we called around to a few other places…

Untitled
Untitled
Until we found one!

Untitled
Untitled
Pretty empty. My one complaint about this place was they had music videos blasting on the walls behind the lanes. It's easy to watch and like I get it…but if you wanted to like have a conversation or like joke or chat, mostly you're just distracted by a music video of Taylor Swift.

Untitled
On Wednesday I went home for a dentist appointment. Long story short, had to reschedule but got to hang out with my cousins.

Untitled
Which is the best!

Untitled
Untitled
And see the Tubby!

Untitled
Mom made yet ANOTHER scarf. She's really pumping them out.

Untitled
Untitled
Beautiful Snow

Untitled
Then off to my babysittin' gig where I get to see this cute pup.

Untitled
Some hours later I'm in Ralphs, scrounging up ingredients to make easy peasy dinner for the weekend.

Untitled
Thursday rolls around and I notice that the lights are still up in the trees at work! That's pleasant.

Untitled
I make a big helping of chicken tikka masala. The sauce was from a jar, so it was a bit too sweet for my tastes. I'll have to try out some other versions.

Untitled
We get in the game and slay some more Uruks in Mordor

Untitled
So Tweedy licked himself another hotspot, he gets to wear the collar of shame again!

Untitled
Happy Friday!

Untitled
Wearing a dress to work is fun. It's always cold in my room in the mornings so I like to get into jeans as soon as possible usually, but today I went more girly.

Untitled
Coffee with Tristan as a Friday pick me up

Untitled
Untitled
Saturday morning and the light was doing fun stuff on the ceiling

Untitled
The dogs were super cute, but I was determined to organize the cluttered mess in my workroom. It keeps me from being productive and I was determined to fix it.

Untitled
Lookin' weird at Big Lots. First stop was a Goodwill, then another thrift store nearby, then Big Lots. Then Target. I was just looking for a tall bookcase with doors. A cabinet, a chest, I dunno what to call it. But the key part is that it needed to be able to CLOSE, so that my mess could be contained.

Untitled
Couldn't find what I needed so had to suck it up and journey to Ikea. Twas my first Ikea experience…not sure what I was expecting but I thought it was going to be like 500 Days of Summer but more vicious?

Untitled
I like this room. ^__^ I'll live here

Untitled
FAKE PROPS. THE BEST. DOES IKEA ALSO MANUFACTURE FAKE HP COMPUTERS.

Untitled
While we wait for our pick up, we try the infamous Swedish meatballs. Emmy does an Emmy Eats on Ikea food…if you wanted to know

Untitled
Close up. So wrinkly…haha

Untitled
All done! It was definitely like…a whole journey. You can't just "swing by" that's for sure.

Untitled
New shelf unit made a nice human blockade for driving.

Untitled
Zach helping me set up the shelf

Untitled
Once it was together I spent a long while reorganizing, throwing away things, and cleaning up

Untitled
Found a little eyebrow I made for some illustrations aha

Untitled
Kind of ugly cause this was taken at night, BUT, you can see the new shelf/storage in the corner, and I reorganized the futon and the printer shelf. It's…SO much more spacious. I just love being in that room.

Untitled
Untitled
We were starving after all that, so met up with Kiki and Kass at Alibi Room for some kogi food and cocktails.

Untitled
Untitled
Then ventured to my favorite dive bar, Tattle Tale. It's the perfect level of dirty plus there's always karaoke. And like. GOOD karaoke singers.

Untitled
Being ladies

Untitled
Tried the Popeye Pinball machine which is actually the worst pinball machine I've ever played ahah

Untitled
Yeah, I went out looking like a mess, but sometimes you don't care at all. So.

Untitled
Juss wanna be with my frands!

Untitled
Sunday morning lazy Tweedy

Untitled
HIS FACE

Untitled
He knows what time it is. (The little dots on the bottom of the tub are cracks…tiny nasty cracks)

Untitled
Untitled
Rat boy

Untitled
LOOK at my workspace in the light. It's so lovely, I'm so happy with it. I think the shelf Zach made for me really stands out now, the wood and copper are so pretty against the white cabinet. *Sigh* Sorry I don't mean to be like "OH LOOK AT MY STUFF" but I just am so relieved that I finally have a space that feels really good to be in. That I want to be in! That doesn't have a TV or a distracting thing in it.

Untitled
Trimmed my bangs…

Untitled
Today Zach had errands to run and since he helped me yesterday, I tagged along

Untitled
Zach got some new frames!

Untitled
Untitled
We wandered around Venice!

Untitled
Pretty fancy area, like really pricey boutiques and restaurants. Not really my scene, but I didn't mind wandering around. It was actually crowded (For LA standards) on the street, so getting some hustle and bustle is nice.

Untitled
Ate a delicious blackened fish sandwich

Untitled

Visited an "antique" shop


Sufi and pug


Later in the afternoon we drove to Little Tokyo to meet up with Kiki and Kass again

After eating we wandered over to the mall to hit up the karaoke place


2 hours of karaoke. Hoarse throat alert.


But pretty lights on the way out!

*Whew*

And that's the week!

Much love friends.
