MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: APRIL 3–9, 2017!

A few visits to the dentist to get my missing retainer sorted, preparing for my week on a family cruise, winning as many stuffed animals as possible with Gabby, and finally my first few days on board.

Taking my old tupperware home

Untitled
Leftover pizza from the day before

Untitled
Worked on some freelance graphic design stuff—font licensing is confusing.

Untitled
Early morning! Off to the dentist.

Untitled
Untitled
Doggos hid my retainer (maybe they ate it? Destroyed it?) So I’m here to try on a new one that was made from an impression of my mouth the dentist took last week. Unfortunately…it didn’t fit. And they had to make new molds of my mouth.

Untitled
I left empty-handed and listened to Episode 3 of S-Town, the podcast story by the Serial and This American Life teams. If you listened to it…guess what episode caused this cry face?

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
I see these lil’ kittens in and around my neighbor’s front yard and it brings me joy to see them.

Untitled
Sara came over and we decided to do a night ride to the ocean.

Untitled
Untitled
We went as fast as we could to beat the sunset (so we didn’t have to bike in the dark)

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Unfortunately we lost the race and the sun was setting as we reached the marina.

Untitled
After biking we went out for vegan sushi. Not bad.

Untitled
Untitled
Tristan gave me his croutons from his salad so I had DOUBLE CROUTONS.

Untitled
Got into Peak for brain training for a while. Crusty brain.

Untitled
Hey Gabby.

Untitled
She got me out of my apartment to a nearby Dave & Busters. That face says “I’m ready for a stuffed animal.”

Untitled
Untitled
We destroyed some nachos and wings before turning our attention to half-priced game night.

Untitled
Gabby is unusually good at claw games

Untitled
Untitled
Look, she won again!

Untitled
I had my time to shine with this 500 ticket win

Untitled
She’s a winner

Untitled
Untitled
Touching a pug outside the grocery shop

Untitled
Untitled
Gave my winning plushies to the pups and Tweedy took control of all four and wouldn’t let Sufi play.

Untitled
Untitled
Too cute!!!!

Untitled
Packed up Glenn and brought him into the office.

Untitled
Shiny post work out…eczema flare on my face acting up

Untitled
Is Spring here?

Untitled
Glenn and I waiting for Miranda in the cafe for the hand off

Untitled
She brought some pug gummies!

Untitled
After work I met Zeen for dinner at a poke shop in the valley

Untitled
Spotted through the window

Untitled
Untitled
Mmmmmm

Untitled
Ate my poke and then we headed over to Evan’s birthday celebration

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Evan organized a night of comedy and music for his b-day. Lots of dancing and big band music. HBD Evan!

Untitled
Morning, Tweedy! Still hoarding the stuffies I see.

Untitled
Back to the dentist once more!

Untitled
Untitled
My dentist is like 40 minutes away, and I always make my appointments in the morning…so I generally am tired when I arrive.

Untitled
Untitled
I asked to keep the molds of my mouth…eheeheh what will I do with these. Endless possibilities.

Untitled
Untitled
Got my new retainer and a second mouth all in one appointment

Untitled
Stopped by my cousin’s house

Untitled
Worked on a Spongebob puzzle for a while. Totally in my element.

Untitled
Untitled
My dad shoves some flowers into a small vase for my mom and I to take to the hospital for my cousin who just had a new baby

Untitled
My dad wants to paint the house, I’m *lucky* to give some input.

Untitled
Tubby dreaming of escape

Untitled
Tiny tiny

Untitled
More cousins! Yay!

Untitled
Got home from visiting the new baby and my dad pinned some hot cheetos for me to find

Untitled
Bye Tubby! See you soon!

Untitled
Testing out this waterproof case (it worked!)

Untitled
A friend from college is a designer and released this cute swimsuit top that I had to snatch up for my cruise. Her site is here if you want to look at her other beach-inspired designs.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Happy hour sushi

Untitled
We were the only folks in there

Untitled
Cone gathering

Untitled
Time for a visit to coinstar? The next photo is a pic of the total. Wanna guess how much this comes out to?

Untitled
$37.89!

Untitled
Untitled
Started packing for my trip but had to stop to snug the pups cuz I’ll miss them!

Untitled
Untitled
Packing things, getting ready for the morning.

Untitled
Zach’s socks and sandals look.

Untitled
Morning, greasy bangs.

Untitled
Ready for port

Untitled
Untitled
Tidied up a bit and played some Harvest Moon while waiting for my parents to arrive.

Untitled
My orchid is looking so good!

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
We got to port early, checked in, found our rooms and settled in.

Untitled
Untitled
Mrs. Doubtfire on the ship TV. One of Zach’s favorite movies.

Untitled
Untitled
Lunch in port

Untitled
Our luggage arrived to the stateroom, so we spent some time unpacking.

Untitled
Changed outfits, cuz WHY NOT.

Untitled
Untitled
Never had a strawberry daiquiri before—why not get one while waiting for the safety muster.

Untitled
Before we set out for sea there was a mandatory muster. Oh! By the way, my family is on this boat for a week for a cruise down the Mexican Riviera. My cousin works for Princess and my parents love taking advantage of *deals*.

Untitled
I packed clothes I rarely wear cuz hey it’s a cruise world now and I’m just livin’ in it

Untitled
Silly ornate ceiling

Untitled
Having a coffee

Untitled
Ceviche in the dining room!

Untitled
Untitled
It amazes me that food is included in the cost of the cruise. You can order as much as you want…

Untitled
Sunset!

Untitled

Untitled
Untitled
Sunset viewing of “Arrival” with Amy Adams

Untitled
Untitled
Arrival was aiiight.

Untitled
Voice of the Ocean auditions…aka karaoke. I got Zach to audition and he got a few votes, but didn’t make it into the final round.

Untitled
Bundled on board

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Good morning!

Untitled
We got up to hit the gym and pool.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Chilling and swimming and reading by myself

Untitled
Untitled
Working on my tan

Untitled
Changed into my cruise shorts ahah

Untitled
Veggie carving demo!

Untitled
Untitled
The unluckiest card

Untitled
Met up with my parents for lunch at the pub on board. This day was a sea day, so we didn’t stop anywhere. Had to keep ourselves occupied at sea.

Untitled
Untitled
Boddington’s

Untitled
Tried to be cute

Untitled
Questionable

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Spent the afternoon walking around, exploring, wearing colorful shorts.

Untitled
Went to a raffle and we both happened to win!

Untitled
I got credits for tournaments in the casino. I decided my mom and I would enter a slot tournament together ahha.

Untitled
Happy hour!

Untitled
Went full Princess Leia for dinner.

Untitled
Untitled
And I’ll leave you with this pic of my dinner.

And next week…three ports, more time at sea, and returning to Los Angeles.

Much love friends.

  1. DOUBLE CROUTS???? That’s real friendship

    Hahahaha Tweedy and his toys – so cute! Poor Sufi.

    I said approx $30! I’m quite proud of myself.

    I love your many and various cruise outfits. How many times did you change??

    Looking forward to seeing the rest of your cruise life!

    1. Sufi still hasn’t gotten a chance to snuggle any of the new toys. Whenever Sufi goes near…Tweedy can sense it and will show up out of the blue and take them back.

      Not bad guestimate!

      I changed probably like 3 or 4 times a day. I thought…why not wear something I might not normally, I can walk around the ship, feel like I “went out” and if it’s uncomfortable, go back to my cabin in a few minutes and change. Sometimes I changed because of dresscode, though—for example, the restaurant didn’t allow shorts, but the buffet did, so if we went for a sit down formal dinner, I had to wear pants. #CruiseLife

  2. ‘I packed clothes I rarely wear cuz hey it’s a cruise world now and I’m just livin’ in it’

    Lmaaaaaaao you absolutely kill me. It’s like reading myself writing in the future. I am going on a cruise and I’m bringing all the stuff I’ve bought for the ‘me I want to be’ but that doesn’t quite work for me in real life. ahahahahah brilliant.

    1. Yes! It’s the perfect opportunity to wear what ever you want—you’ll never see this folks again, you have opportunities to change quickly if you need to…so why not! Also your question about cameras…I didn’t have my big camera on board on sea days, I only used it for excursion days!
