MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: NOVEMBER 28-DECEMBER 4, 2016!
My fridge broke…alas. So this week is a lot of eating out, preparing the advent calendar, helping Marie with her video, being 75 year old grandpas at a steakhouse, and a few hours at Disneyland…
Woke up on Monday to a totally warm fridge…things were stinky and rotting. Somehow during the Thanksgiving break, it had turned off and stayed off…and we had to throw a lot of frozen and cold items away. 😦
Made it to work after the fridge fiasco. Landlord having somebody come look at in the coming days…*DAYS*
The Getty put up the lights, this year they are a lil’ different
Happy hour sushi with Kiki before a screening of La La Land
Wandering around at sunset for some photos for the Getty instagram
“Hey, need me to take any cups back to the kitchen?” I turn around and see this…Tristan Mughands
Hot soup. It’s a blessing and a financial curse to have to continue to eat out with no fridge.
This year we’re using an old advent calendar that Zach’s mom gave him last year and refilling them. I took the even days, he took the odd days, so we hit up 2 different dollar stores to get 13 items each (so we both got a thing for Christmas day)
Got this baby at the Dollar Store
A preview of some of things I’m putting in the advent cal
Breakfast out (still have no fridge for eggs…milk…wahhh).
Walked past another 99 cent store, and there were some scary creatures in there
One doesn’t look like the other
Zach put his half in!!! Eeeek I’m excited
Had to stop by Samy’s on the way to help film Marie’s crowdfunding video
Made it to Marie’s with a mic in hand
Marie getting ready and her actress enjoying some of Marie’s cooking
Marie not happy to be in front of the camera
Much happier on the other side
We spontaneously decided to check out this steak house that I pass frequently
We were in the La La Land spirit of dark jazz clubs with a bit of a crusty vibe
My turn to open! Awww a lil’ reindeer
We’ve come to microwaveable meals T____T WE NEED A FRIDGE
Day 2 – alpaca lil’ towel/handkerchief to take to the studio
Wore my crummy shoes to work but I was feel v. casual on a Friday
Working with curators of the alchemy show to do an Instagram Q&A
To meet up with Kiki at Disneyland!!!
We went to CA Adventure first to check out the special food carts
Grabbed some beers to go wait in line at Toy Story
Made it over to Disneyland to find Kiki
We had to branch off from Kiki’s group again (she was there with work friends)
Zach decided to get a penny made
Meeko! I feel connected to Meeko because my favorite Disney priness is Pocahontas and I loved it as a kid and always liked his name because it’s so close to my middle name!!
There she is! In line for Matterhorn
My turn to open the advent cal…wow these are great
Kiki brought us to volunteer with the Children’s Institute at their winter carnival. Helped kids make cookies for a few hours, twas delightful.
Love all the little festive nooks
Saturday was a D&D night plus a potluck, so I made some rosemary chicken. Here’s the recipe, it’s simple: get party wings, spray pam on the baking glass track, then lay the wings down. Add seasonings…whatever you want! I use lawry’s, garlic salt, and dried rosemary. Bake 60 minutes on 400, but flip the wings halfway through. They should be crispy!
The plate! Salad, rosemary chicken, and chicken shawarma
The gang getting their plates together
Since we were playing D&D at Kiki’s place we need to make our characters (we usually use legos) so we had a little arts and crafts time…
Finally got the old fridge out…it was smelling terrible. No real fridge yet, unfortunately…but Marie let us borrow a mini fridge she’s had since college
Stuff is everywhere to clear the path for the old fridge to leave and the new one to come…in another week. So that’ll be 2 weeks without a fridge T___T
Went downtown with Kiki and Ders and Zeen, stopped for cocktails and lunch at Far Bar
Walked over to Angel City Brewery
Perfect day for some corn hole
Didn’t have dinner till late…so we shared a pack of doritos tacos like idiots.
Much love friends!
