MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: OCTOBER 30–NOVEMBER 5, 2017!

Enjoying the last week of longer days before we fall back an hour. Celebrating Halloween at a bar (where nobody else was celebrating). Food: empanadas, tacos, cheese boards, clam chowder bread bowls, and korean fried chicken. Accompanying my little cousins to their birthday trip to Disneyland (and the Bippity Boppity Boutique), and spending time with my dad over his birthday weekend.

Enjoy!

Untitled
Monday. The morning started and I worked on passing around these school picture day collages I made at Joe’s Halloween party the Saturday before. Somehow Halloween felt very over but it was actually only October 30.

Untitled
Can you find me?

Untitled
I refuse to take the Halloween costumes off the dogs. I crack up everytime I look at Sufi because it looks like a skunk is holding onto his back.

Untitled
Got my second half of my Hep B vaccination I got for my travels.

Untitled
Home to the dogs and a face mask.

Untitled
Tuesday!

Untitled
Walk into the kitchen and Tristan pours coffee all over the counter.

Untitled
HAPPY HALLOWEEN

In the Halloween spirit we turned out little closet office into a Yayoi Kusama Infinity Room

My mom told me I had to wear this bat costume at least twice to get my money’s worth so that I did.

Flew down the hill and discovered nature.

Goodnight, Getty

Untitled
Home with enough time to throw on the little costumes I got the dogs when I was in Chiang Mai (yes the night markets have everything)

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Pika-Su and Froggy-Twoo

Untitled
Untitled
Kiki and Ders brought witch Peanut over so we could all hang out, be mildly festive, and get photos of the dogs in their torture devices.

Untitled
Eheeh

Untitled
Untitled
OH cool. Nobody at this bar is dressed up.

Untitled
Well we came for the happy hour anyways.

Untitled
Wood.

Untitled
A festive hang out

Untitled
Wednesday. Unashamed to admit that I still have all my stuff from my trip to Southeast Asia on the chair. I’ll get to it. (I think secretly putting everything away means I didn’t just come back and it’s all over…)

Untitled
Untitled
Bundled.

Untitled
Seems like fall to me.

Untitled
Utensil drawer at work never has the right utensils

Untitled
Untitled
Walking down the hill. I haven’t done this so consisently for a while because I’ve been carpooling (and we normally park in a different lot) but it’s nice to wind down after a long day and just walk.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Yes I even took an embarassing timer shot.

Untitled
And passed these deer!

Untitled
It seems by the amount of photos the walk is like 3 miles but it’s less than a mile hahah.

Untitled
We’re back! After discovering how great the happy hour here was the night before we decided to come back again to see the final Dodgers game (last game in the World Series).

Untitled
Untitled
Went next door to a bakery right before they closed to get empanadas

Untitled
As we were finishing our empanadas at the bar a taco stand started setting up. Yaaaay!

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Al pastor tacos. Mmmmm. (And hate to say but Dodgers lost)

Untitled
As much as I try to protect the pillows they will always find a way to sit on them.

Untitled
It’s raining today…

Untitled
Untitled
Also finally brought in like three weeks of junk mail.

Untitled
I love rain!!

Untitled
Untitled
It only rained for a few hours but it was still nice.

Untitled
My sweater is like a forest green and Tristan was like “oh we are matching!” Gray/green is a hard one for his colorblindness.

Untitled
Untitled
Tristan trying to get a photo of me in the sun (but it was too bright!!!)

Untitled
Desk lunch

Untitled
Left a little early to head to USC Fisher Museum to take some photos of their Pacific Standard Time exhibition.

Untitled
It was fun to walk around a college campus.

Untitled
After wandering around a while we found it!

James hd Brown exhibition

Untitled
James hd Brown was born in Glendale but moved to Oaxaca later in his career.

Untitled
Untitled
We walked across the street to see what was on at CAAM

Untitled
Untitled
Had to take a shortcut through a decorative brick fence but we made it! California African American Museum.

Untitled

Exhibition about the multiracial Chinese/Black community in the Caribbean and the artworks they were making.

There was another exhibition we wanted to see but we also wanted to check out the Endeavor

Untitled
California Science Center! Just as I remember. Used to love coming here.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Science Center was closing so we got outta there.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Home at last. Packed up my things, walked the dogs, and drove over to my parents house to get ready to take my little cousins to the happiest place on earth.

Untitled
My mom made me an avocado and cream cheese bagel. That’s love.

Untitled
Untitled
So…you excited or something?

Untitled
First ride of the day? Splash Mountain. SO! I’m honestly so honored to be here because both little cousins had a birthday in the summer and their present was to come to Disneyland and do the Bippity Boppity Boutique and they could have gone earlier but wanted to wait for me to be able to go with them. Doesn’t that just melt your heart!??!

Untitled
Untitled
Younger sis not afraid of Splash Mountain at all (or Space Mountain or any rollercoaster) but was so so scared to go on Haunted Mansion.

Untitled
TIANA

Untitled
They were such balls of energy but we had to remind them that we were attempting to make it all the way to the fireworks show (9:30pm!) which they had never seen before.

Untitled
We cut through Fantasyland to get to Space Mountain

Untitled
Untitled
Had to ride in two separate cars but I’M SO PROUD cuz littler one put her hands up the whole ride. You can see her little hands in the pic.

Untitled
Cute moment where the storm troopers encountered this little storm trooper kid was standing there. They go up to him and say, “Hey…you look familiar…”

Untitled
Star Tours

Looking stressed ahah. They have never been on Matterhorn before, so this was a big moment. But they liked it!

Untitled

Untitled
Before!

Untitled
So! It was finally time for their big birthday special present, a visit to the Bippity Boppity Boutique. Children can come and choose a dress, choose a hairstyle, and get pampered.

Untitled
Untitled
This was like…their dream. They love princesses (and they wore these dresses as their Halloween costumes) so they got a chance to be Belle and Rapunzel.

Untitled
They got glitter all over their hair and bodies. And had a chance to sing Disney songs and joke back and forth with the “Fairy Godmothers” who did their hair.

Untitled
After!

Untitled
Don’t be fooled, we still made fart jokes while they were in costume.

Untitled
Untitled
The sweetest

Untitled
Hours passed and they changed out of the dresses (“Too hard to pee in it!”) and just kept it Royal Casual.

Untitled
Thunder Mountain

Untitled
So beauty

Untitled
We went again and PROOF they BOTH had their hands up for the ride

Untitled
The first time they’ve seen Disney at night! Getting grumpy and tired…

Untitled
Untitled
Refueling with some bread bowls

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Fantasmic! We made it!

Untitled
Fireworks!

Untitled
Good morning! We slept over in Anaheim and had some Mickey breakfast.

Untitled
I documented this whole day, but here are a few clips.

A few hours later we ordered some korean fried chicken and spicy rice cakes.

And that’s how we spent the end of the weekend. Food, wine, friends and some collective imagining…

Much love friends!

  1. In the Halloween photos, what is Zach’s costume? Is he maleficent? Ahaha. That Infinity Room concept is so amazing, personally haven’t been! 😦 I missed out on her Singapore exhibition.

    Sufi as Pikachu is too cute. And yes, night markets have everything! And I say this all the time, but really love how you capture light 🙂 & I think it’s so cute that your little cousins love you too much and waited for you! I think all your cousins love you. Lol I can’t stand kids so it would be too much of an effort for me T_T

    Belated happy birthday to your Dad! 🙂

    1. Zach wasn’t at the Halloween party! Maybe he has a doppelganger 🙂

      I wish we had night markets here more frequently (or big markets that aren’t just farmer’s markets). We are missing out!

  2. You’re making me want to go back to DisneyWorld, I hope you know. I haven’t been in at least ten years. Blech.

    That is so sweet that your cousins wanted to wait until you could come with them. I’m glad y’all had such a great time! And I’ve always been so curious about Bibbidy Bobbidy Boutique, like I knew what it was but I was curious as to the process. That looks like something I think anyone at that age would be super psyched about. It’s an awesome/adorable concept.

    Happy birthday to your Dad! I hope he had a great one!

  3. I love Sufi’s costumes. He’s the cutest.

    Also adding how sweet your little cousins are that they waited for you to go to Disneyland together. 💓
