MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: FEBRUARY 9 – 15
A long work week, and lots of home cooking. A fun Valentine's weekend at a historic home, at Galentine's, and making steaks on steaks on steaks. Enjoy!
THIS WEEK IN PHOTOS LAST YEAR: HERE!
When Mondays are foggy it feels right
Pre-sun soaked travertine
Had lunch in the cafe, in the sunlight. Also got a bag of arugula and an avocado to take home from the "farmer's market"
I met with a conservator to discuss an upcoming event, and their labs have the best bright blue cutting mats.
This pimple won't leave me alone! 🙂
Marie is a super kind soul and brings over tendon from Mitsuwa! T__T
And simultaneously introduces me to The Mindy Project. I've been enjoying, I've only watched about 6 episodes now.
Dogs being weiners
A quick coin-worthy #selfiewithsufi
So happy to share these printable Valentine's cards for art history lovers! (Link to The Getty's tumblr)
Meat salads are weird and should be stopped
Having a lazy food night after leaving work late, popped by Pei Wei to get some hot and sour soup
Saw this dude carrying this HUGE BEAR across the street…forgot Valentine's Day was approaching…
Hot and sour soup, about $4 for a huge thing, enough for 2 meals. It's decent!
Wednesday I babysat, which meant seeing my fav westside puppy that's not my own
Kikz came over to eat after work. And we did a bit of wandering at Target.
When I was grocery shopping I grabbed some of these lil' guys. I love them! I'm not really a flower person, but these are like little fluffy dustbunnies.
Got to work about an hour early to prep for our live Twitter chat #SeeingRedChat. If you're interested at all in science, art, pigment, paints, etc…check out the storify of the event.
Plant pre-meeting, and then 30 minutes later…
Sun doing cute things like really highlighting my red pimple
Slow cooked chicken with salsa verde for dinner
Mmmmm. Really yummy.
Friday I documented! Worked from home, ate some food…
Took these dummies to the dog park
Bought this top from Aryn's vintage shop, and wanted to send her a cute pic, but…yeah, need posing tips.
Made some choco covered strawberries
And the most tender awesome hot wings my oven could ever produce
Friday night was also Galentine's at Kileys. Ate hot cheetos. 🙂
Saturday at dawn I dragged Zeen to the newly reopened Hollyhock House by Frank Lloyd Wright
I'll have more and better pictures soon.
They had it opened for 24 hours straight, and for one day only you could take photos inside.
We arrived around 6:15 am and left just before 8 am.
Breakfast at one of my favorite diners
Spam and eggs, of course. With Jack cheese and hash browns!
Plus a side of avocado to have it on toast!
Got my books in the mail that were recommended by a co-worker. Hope he's not saying I'm the asshole.
Setting up happy flowers to welcome Kiki and her boy over for dinner
Also unrolled my new white backdrop
Working on some headshots for Zach
BUT THEN, time for steaknight round 2
Kiki, steak queen
Split between four, don't worry!
Plus busting out the new IKEA addition to the room, an actual fold out table!
And a little bundle of Tweeds to end the night
Basil! Kiki was babysitting my basil plant, but he's home now.
Met up with friends at the LA Zine Fest
Hanna, a friend I met while studying abroad in London, is visiting!!!
Also ran into Kass
Purchased this, really excited to read
Simpsons mural in Glassell Park
Went for lunch at the Golden Road Brewery
Oogling the zines we got
Kiley getting attacked by Gus
New puppy friend
Gabby came over to chill while we shot more headshots for Zeen in a different lighting set up
But ended the weekend with a long game of Cards Against Humanity and a marathon of Face Off episodes.
Much love friends!
