MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: OCTOBER 23–29, 2017!

First week back in Los Angeles after three weeks abroad in Southeast Asia. Battling jetlag, seeing friends, eating nothing but junk, and getting back into the routine of life in LA while attempting to embrace the Halloween-time glee in 100 degree weather.

Enjoy!

Untitled
Good morning! First morning waking up back in Los Angeles. We just got back from our three week trip in Thailand, Vietnam, and Cambodia the night before. Basically only enough time to get the dogs and come back home and pass out.

Untitled
Tweedy catching sun rays, a familiar sight. It’s almost like the trip was a fever dream. Everything so similiar and familiar like we hadn’t just spent three weeks abroad, doing new and unfamiliar things every day. A weird feeling.

Untitled
Attempting some fall colors and trying to break free from the 3 outfits I cycle through at work. Of course the week we get back Los Angeles is in a heat wave with highs reaching over 100 degrees.

Untitled
Got to my desk and somebody who knows me really well left some garlic spam.

Untitled
Happy to see a happy atmospheric sunset on my first day back to work.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Zach promised me that we’d visit the pumpkin patch to grab some pumpkins and attempt to squeeze a few “fall” things into our week before he heads to Texas. Here we are.

Untitled
Untitled
Picked out a few small babies and headed out. Lots of families doing evening photoshoots.

Untitled
Craving buffalo wings, I’m sick.

Untitled
Zach swears he has a copy of Hocus Pocus but DOES HE

Untitled
A nice healthy return to Los Angeles…hah, cajun wings on the left and buffalo wings on the right.

Untitled
Fell asleep on the couch around 9pm while watching Hocus Pocus, woke up around 10:30 and went to bed. Of course then fell asleep till around 2:30am and couldn’t go back to sleep around 4:30. The jetlag is real.

Untitled
Sweet little pumpkins

Untitled
Feeling so exhausted. *Wahhh*

Untitled
Zeen happily doing chores

Untitled
Untitled
Still over 100 degrees today.

Untitled
Such a turtle. I need a new gym bag that isn’t ripping apart.

Untitled
Got home and had myself a little snack of leftover wings before heading out to the metro.

Untitled
Beautiful sunset again, this time viewed from the metro station

Untitled
Untitled
A welcome back Clippers game. The Jazz are in town (somehow Zach grew up a Utah Jazz fan haha) so we got some tickets the first night that the Dodgers were playing in the World Series so nobody was really there.

Untitled
Have to get nachos with extra jalapenos

Untitled
Clippers won.

Untitled
Got home, not tired at *all* so we decided to carve the pumpkins.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Not creative so of course I do another Tweedy and Sufi.

Untitled
They came out cute though.

Untitled
Another night of wrestless jetlag no sleep that a face mask couldn’t solve

Untitled
Tired me couldn’t chose a better outfit so I failed already and went bck to repeats.

Untitled
Tristan is back in office!

Untitled
He brought me treats from Mexico City

Untitled
Untitled
Find your light

Untitled
Another day, another sunset at the Getty

Untitled
Heading home

Untitled

Untitled
Got my plants back from my kind neighbor who watched them but alas…the bamboo didn’t make it. I’m so sad!!!!

Untitled
I set out the carved pumpkins (don’t worry, I turned them around so the neighborhood could enjoy the crafty work)

Untitled
Neighbor goes all out.

Untitled
Tristan meets me at my apartment and we walk to get some dinner.

Untitled
We got distracted at the grocery store and somehow came back with a little charcuterie board, a little overboard for a Wednesday night maybe?

Untitled
Untitled
We continued watching Game of Thrones from Season 2. I am the master guide as Tristan watches for the first time.

Untitled
Untitled
My skin is so confused from being in such a humid climate and coming back to such a dry one.

Untitled
Thursday.

Untitled
Untitled
Gabby comes over and I share some leftover cheese with her.

Untitled
Untitled
She’s craving Thai food so we order some delivery.

Untitled
Untitled
Gabby appreciates the Mexican candies. When we were little she used to share her Pulparindo with me. ❤

Untitled
Doing what we do best, chill with dogs.

Untitled
A box from amazon arrives for me. That’s right…I ordered the cheapest bat costume I could find that had prime delivery. I was last minute invited to shoot some photos at a costume party on Saturday. Needed to be ready.

Untitled
Friday. SUPER. Jetlagged again. STILL.

Untitled
Untitled
Sunrise

Untitled
Tweedy won’t even get up

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
The sun is beating down already. Another day in the 90s.

Untitled
Took casual Friday too far? Oh well. No meetings today!

Untitled
Heated up some leftover soup in the afternoon.

Untitled
Exhausted but happily eating Thai leftovers.

Untitled
Untitled
Tweedy chills on the couch as I continue to work from home.

Untitled
Gabby invited me to stop by her work for a Halloween thing. She works not too far from me.

Untitled
Decided to wear my Dobby ears from my zombie Dobby costume I made a few years ago.

Untitled
Made it!

Untitled
They do an annual pumpkin race with decorated pumpkins on wheels. Of course this one is a watermelon so it was smashed and disqualified.

Untitled
Child fairy dancing in the creepy red light.

Untitled

Untitled
Proud to represent Dobby

Untitled
Untitled
Stopped back at Gabby’s house to see her new apartment and Russ. Then called a Lyft to meet up with Kiki and Tristan.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Friday night, not too busy at the bar. Just in time for happy hour.

Untitled
Untitled
Tristy makes a good Dobby.

Untitled
Saturday morning.

Untitled
Kiki and Ders pick me up and we head out for breakfast.

Untitled
Untitled
Spam and eggs place at Rutt’s Hawaiian Cafe

Untitled
We strategize a Target run afterwards for some last minute costume things (and I needed some basic shopping done haha).

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Was out in my neighborhood and casually saw a turtle wandering the street. I saw a woman run out looking for it too. (She found him!)

Untitled
Untitled
Dug out their old costumes from years previous. Why not start early. Sufi may or may not be humiliated.

Untitled
Kiki and Ders came over to do last touches getting ready for the party.

Untitled
Pre-hair tease.

Untitled
Whoa feels like 2010.

Untitled
Untitled
Getting the pic

Untitled
We gotta go!

Untitled
There early to set up

Untitled
There to shoot some school pictures and crowd shots.

Untitled
Untitled
Lurking above the party, a classic Waldo move.

Untitled
Untitled
The photobooth for school pics all set up with Kiki

Untitled
Adriana Grande challenge

Untitled
Untitled
Home! Tired. Late.

Untitled
Untitled
A little sad to take out my little buns

Untitled
Woke up with a hotdog next to me. Yes.

Untitled
Untitled
Hotdog in the streets

Untitled
Untitled
Spent the afternoon in bed, editing photos and being a slug. Some ramen on the stove to match the mood.

Untitled
Addams Family

Untitled
Editing. Photos. Doo teeeee dooo.

Untitled
Untitled
Went to take the dogs out for an evening walk and the whole neighborhood was so pink and magical from the sunset.

Untitled
Cotton candy skies.

Sad to not be traveling and experiencing new things every day, but happy to be back with the dogs and seeing friends again.

Much love friends.

  1. Hooray, a post!

    I love how halloween is such a lovely, festive holiday in the States! Here it’s not lol…wish I could carve pumpkins someday. Love all the lighting in your photos, particularly how you capture sunlight. Also, those pink skies are so beautiful. The turtle is so delightful! Kiki’s costume does look very 2010, and you’re the cutest bat! I can’t do buns if my life depended on it 😦

    1. The buns on my bat costume night were so lucky, I️ normally cannot get them even and usually they won’t stay up. It was a Halloween miracle for sure.

      I️ wish I️ could send you a pumpkin to carve. It’d probably be all rotten by the time it arrived tho… 😦
