MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: FEBRUARY 20–26, 2017!
Preparing for 5 days on a road trip with some of my best frands—we tackle the 11 hour drive to Salt Lake City through the night, cook, play in the snow, and teach Kiki how to ski.
Started hiding Xerxes around the house, and Zach has found him and he put him in the blender!!
Lazy pasta on President’s Day. Everybody had the day off work, so I spent it making food for the week and doing computer shit.
Go-to pasta at home, reminds me of my mama
Literally took all day to download photos from my iPhone, but hey, so glad I got around to it
Sweet pups cuddling for warmth
Morning! Checking on my phone progress
Another rainy day
I made all that chili and forgot it at home! Had to buy lunch at the cafe…the driest “bahn mi” ever
Working on a little clip of a mummy portrait getting scanned
Bundled after the gym, yes…left work like this…no shame
Chili for dinner
While watching the new Masterchef Jr!!!!
TWEEDY GET A JOB
Glenn getting some warm body time
Packing up for our road trip to Park City
Took Glenn to work with me
Tristy and I soaked up a few hours of sun during lunch
And of course played with Glenn in the office
Taking some work on the road with me
Leaving to a beautiful sunset
Cooked the last bit of pasta and italian sausage and leftover mushroom
And packed up the car (while Sufi anxiously watched through the window)
Ders and Kiki arrive, and we scarf down leftovers
We pack it in our rental (had to rent a 4 wheel drive, we were expecting snow on the 11 hour drive)
I drove the first 3 hours, switched just after 11pm
Driving through the niiiight
First snow encounter!
Daylight! Just as we pulled into Salt Lake City
So beautiful! It was snowing
Went directly to Eggs in the City to have some skillet potatoes and coffee
Then tried to squeeze in a few Salt Lake things before heading up the mountain
Hand sculpted and wonderful
Giant fake bird house
Sphinx with Joseph Smith’s head
Got p cold
Went to check out Temple Square
Zach and the space Jesus
Hi from in the Temple
Headed up the mountain, stopped for supplies at the Whole Foods
We were all exhausted when we got to the house, everybody napped. I did a little freelance work while we watched some casual Bob’s Burgers
Steaks for Chef Kiki to prepare!
I worked on the roasted potatoes
Beautiful steak dinner by Chef Kiki, meat tech bfa
Blue Planet 2!!! SWIMMING SLOTH
Meats on the skillet
Cheesy eggs and bacon and lil’ sausages
And then we got ready to hit the slopes
Snow pants are dumb
Kiki’s first day on skis and she did so well!
Magical afternoon in the snow
Kiki tackled a long green run within her first like 2.5 hours of learning how to ski hahah
I’m not flexible
Nothing beats this view!
Staring at the view
Making wings tonight
Wings and Codenames with Zach’s cousins
Elegant meat arrangement
Exploring Main Street
Couldn’t resist the sock store—really wanted the sumo wrestlers but they only had big feet sizes
The sun is out!
High West Distillery
We parked the car at the bottom of a ski run, and then casually rode the furnicular up and down for the view waiting for a Lyft back
Bundled and ready for an ultimate sledding adventure
We made it to the bottom of a big ass run on the sled. WE. DID. IT.
Had snow blasting in my face for approx 20 mins
Cleaned up and went out to eat way too much food
Whoops everything was way bigger than we expected
Twinkly last evening in Park City
Terrible pic, but this is the Anaconda opening credits. Yes. We watched it all
Dersin’ down to Las Vegas
Made it to Nevada
Chubby Cattle! Thanks, Yelp! In Vegas’ Chinatown
Any place that has a big basket of fried garlic up for grabs is for me
PLUS CONVEYOR BELT
Doin’ Vegas getting ready stuff
Bundled up for the Strip
Our hotel glowing in the distance
Bellagio fountain show
Zach photographing Olaf ripping off his own head
Kiki amazed at Ders’ bonus win on the slots
After wandering around, checking out a few casinos, we ended the night with a fake black jack woman.
Much love friends.
