MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: NOVEMBER 6–12, 2017!

The week leading up to my first ever 10K race (taking place at Disneyland through both parks). Spending the weekend after the race on a retreat in the wilderness (with lots of chickens).

Enjoy!

Happy Monday! Apparently took no notable photos before dark. Was leaving work on Monday and noticed that they put up holiday lights.

Untitled

Parked my car and heard a *boom* in the distance. I saw a plume of smoke rising and the smell of rubber in the air, so naturally I walked toward the sound. Turns out a car that was parked in the back corner of a parking lot (nobody inside) caught on fire!

It’s actually getting chilly in LA, time of the year to make even more soup!

Installation views of Photography in Argentina: 1850-2010: Contradiction and Continuity. This exhibition features photographs made in Argentina that examine the complex history over 160 years to dispel the notion that Argentina is a homogenous society with a dominant European-immigrant population and no indigenous culture.

Sushi! We sent to see Lady Bird which was so good and sweet. I appreciate a good mother/daugther/coming of age story so much.

Untitled
Thursday! Working from home today.

Eczema has been really really bad this week. I complain about it too much, it’s really not a life threatening condition, just uncomfortable and gross. Shoutout to my mustache

Back home still wearing my pajamas but feel cozy as heck. A few hours till I need to head out again…I mostly lounged on the computer.

Untitled
Sorry for so many pics in this mirror (Shoutout to Marie for gifting it to me) but I’ve been TRYING to care more about trying new outfits and wearing more of my closet even if it doesn’t always work out.

Untitled

Much love friends.

  1. Giiiiiiiiirrrrrrrrrrllllllllllllllll your fashion was on POINT in this post! I loved all of your outfits! I need that blue/white plaid top and those black and white pants in my life.

    Congrats on the 10k! I decided to put that on my bucket list for next year!

    1. Ahahahah thank you! I was going through photos and thought to myself, “geez, why did you take so many mirror pics this week” and was a little embarrassed to include them all but HERE we are! Most of my clothes are from Uniqlo or a thrift shop, there’s no in between.

      The 10K was totally not bad, you can do it! I followed an 8 week training schedule and it wasn’t the worst!

    1. I’m so sad there will be no more Great British Bake Off episodes 😦 I seriously love the pacing and calmness of the show compared to American competition shows.

      I still am unconvinced I can do a half marathon (I have feeble knees haha) but I think for now maybe another 10K??

  2. Love your overalls lewk!!! Ahhhh, makes me wanna run too so bad 🙂 That basketball court on the trailer of the movie you posted looks an awful lot like your high school gym!

    Like

    1. I’m so glad you caught that because I’m 100% sure that IS my high school gym (other parts in the movie feature a coffee shop that is always used in indie films that I also know is in my hometown).

  3. Congrats on your race!! It looks like so much fun! That might be the only way to get me to want to run a 10k, is to have it go through all the neat parts of Disneyland! So cool!

    Also — can you please make a cookbook? I want two of your recipes: the famous gyoza soup and rosemary chicken!! Pls! 😀

    From, long-time (ex) LJ-er from ADIML days! ❤

    1. Thank you! Aha my two favorite things to make, they are really so easy! Maybe I can do a few recipe posts, I’m just nervous you won’t like how it actually tastes and then it is revealed I have weird taste buds haha.

      Thanks for following me over from LJ! 💕
