MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: SEPTEMBER 28 – OCTOBER 4, 2015!
A flu shot and sunrise work day before heading off for a four day weekend in Austin, Texas! Another year of ACL Fest in Zach’s hometown but this time with Aryn in tow!

Enjoy!

Untitled
Starting the week wearing my new lil’ boots I got from Goodwill. I wish it was fall so far. Well, it is. But it’s so hot in LA still.

Untitled
Hey kitteh

Untitled
Was good and brought my own lunch for once!

Untitled
Eye balloon, very tempting. I’d put it on my balcony and signal to the neighborhood that I SEE YOU.

Untitled
Got my flu shot. The room was kind of sketchy, the shot really really pinched, and of course there was a man coughing his lung out in the waiting room… *but I’m alive now*

Untitled
I woke up to a pretzel that Zach made for me at work using some left over clay and brass dust. Preeeeetty cute, except I’m pretty sure the brass dust swirled into my nose and throat while I was sleeping.

Untitled
Untitled
Selfie in the gym, selfie at the Getty. Actually this “mirror” at the Getty is actually just a very reflective window and there are usually people and staff in the other side looking at you taking your selfie…just fyi

Untitled
Wandering around, photographing for @thegetty instagram

Untitled
Cute grass dumplings

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Worked a lil’ late, and suddenly I was alone in the parking garage T___T

Untitled
Me ‘n Kiki as eggs

Untitled
Untitled
Kiki was in Chicago for the last 5 days or so, so we’re doing our 2nd post-Chicago “meat up” at Tender Greens for steak steak steak

Untitled
Sittin’ on the same side practicing for our wedding day

Untitled
Watching Kiki buy lush but hurting inside that I can’t use it anymore *please eczema clear up please!!!*

Untitled
Tuesday night, attempt to throw together clothes to pack for Austin

Untitled

Arrived to work a little after sunrise so I could get a full day in. (Leaving a lil’ early to catch the flight to Austin)

Untitled
So beauty!

Untitled
Untitled
*Sleeeepy*

Untitled
Curried cauliflower and potatoes…so yummmm

Untitled
I asked Zach to meet me on the street with my old crockpot…ahahh

Untitled
LAX!

Untitled
Managed to get my greasy hair into a braid

Untitled
Bye LA

Untitled
Made it to Austin! *Sleepy*

Untitled
Untitled
Sensual moments in what we hoped was a cash cab…but is actually just an uber driver with the heart of a club kid

Untitled
ARYN IN AUSTIN!!

Untitled
At Magnolia’s Cafe, we come here every time

Untitled
Little clothes rack was set up! I decided to unpack for once.

Untitled
Good morning, Texas! We’re here for ACL Fest, but have all Thursday to just explore.

Untitled
Zach checkin’ on the bees

Had to go out on the lake!

Lovely day, not too hot (yet!)

Untitled
*SKUNK*

Untitled
Untitled
Important first stop

Untitled
Untitled
Fatty brisket, jalapeno & cheddar sausage, garlic sausage, green beans, and potato salad!

Untitled
And of course shiners!

Untitled
Went to Barton Springs (last time we only went to the dog park area) but alas…CLOSED ALL DAY FOR CLEANING??!?!

Untitled
Well it is a natural spring, guess it needs a little de-algae help

Untitled
So we went to the other side to the dog park area again

Untitled
Untitled
Aryn decked out in her cutie vintage swim suit. We went in the water for a bit, played in the current. It’s really slippery out there. (And FREEZING)

Untitled
You can actually see somebody falling in in the background…haha so slippery

Untitled
Untitled
Gotta have snow beach after! Zach since he was a kid says he always gets half cherry half black cherry with the condensed milk

Untitled
Peter Pan putt putt after…was a hard game to finish. It was so hot and none of us were very good…

Untitled
Finding air conditioning and other treasures at Uncommon Objects! It’s an antique store that’s truly like a big curiosity cabinet. Many things are vintage and expensive, but it’s fun to look around.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Zach is tired.

Untitled
Untitled
Walking over to the South Congress bridge to see the infamous Austin bats. 1.5 million bats take off at dusk for the evening to hunt. Here’s a video I found on YouTube of the bats at a duskier hour (you can see them better). We waiting nearly an hour and they came out when it was dark. Still cool!

Untitled
Everybody waiting to see them

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
It got darker and darker and finally they came out, but yeah, it was hard to see! Oh well!

Untitled
Good morning, Austin! First day of the festival.

Untitled
Untitled
The next morning we met a snake!

Untitled
Cute little beauty owned by Zach’s friend

Untitled
And off to the fest!

Okay – yeah – bad photo. But Dave Grohl has a cast on his leg and they built him a rock and roll chair on a track that moves forward and backwards…it was so silly and awesome

Untitled
Untitled
Ruining life

A rare sight of no lines at the toilets

Untitled
Untitled
Everybody ready to hear Drake

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Watching Aryn loooove Drake was my festival highlight for sure

Untitled
Also got these little bandanas, dust protection. We were all getting pretty cough-y/sneez-y from the dust.

Untitled
Dead zombie legs.

Untitled
Sunday morning we ate my favorite queso and texmex from Torchy’s

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Went out to find a rope swing Zach knew about on Lake Austin

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
I never really grew up as a water person so various fun lake activities are very foreign to me. BUT, I did conquer my fear and did the rope swing (we had to swim over to the swing, and yes – swimming in lakes is another fear of mine). My arms were so sore for days after.

Untitled
Untitled
Day 3 festival means sleeping in a hammock

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Hi how are you

Untitled
The Strokes! Who didn’t give a shit about playing haha

Untitled
Untitled
And that ends a sweaty weekend in Texas!

(Sorry this was so late – I’ve been doing an extra leadership program this week…)

Much love friends.
