MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: FEBRUARY 12–18, 2018! (DIY BOILING CRAB, FISH MARKET, HORSE RACING)

Food illustrations, a visit to the fish market, meeting up with old friends, and going to my old high school. Enjoy!

Untitled
Sunrise on an early carpool morning, a real treat for having to wake up at 6am.

Untitled
The hot sauces and seasonings arrived! I’ve been googling DIY Boiling Crab cajun seafood boil recipes and these ingredients kept popping up.

Untitled
The evening sky also a beautiful treat.

Couldn’t be bothered to cook! Thai food delivery for dinner.

Still very into my short hair. I wish I could be on top of getting it cut more regularly.

Untitled
It’s the best when my lunch leftovers aren’t just a sad bag of salad.

Untitled
Untitled
Tristan organized a letter writing lunch to send letters to Little Miss Flint for the Black Panther screening she organized for the kids of Flint

Untitled
Untitled
Everybody’s sticker collections were astonishingly good. I got to take this baby back to my desk.

Untitled
Hi! Happy Valentine’s Day.

Untitled
Untitled
In traffic for love

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
We went to try izakaya at Tsubaki in Echo Park. I think it was overpriced for a slightly better than okay meal. I did like their salad with fried lotus though!

Happy THURSDAY! Tonight I am going back to my old high school to watch my little cousin’s playoff basketball game. Busted out my old volleyball sweatshirt that I designed that makes absolutely no sense.

Untitled
Anybody recognize? Hahah

Untitled
Weird to be back…but it was really a fun game. The whole time it was super close and at the very end we pulled ahead.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
If you remember my high school days, I probably showed this place before. It’s a staple for the city’s youths.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
You have to put the seasoning salt on the fries and in the ranch!

Untitled
Home in time to catch some Olympics

Untitled
I took my blanket out of the dryer and put it on the couch. Went to refill my waterbottle and when I came back a little booger was sitting on it…

Untitled
Untitled
Happy Friday! Marie is in town and we agreed to meet at 6:30am at a downtown fish market.

Untitled
Untitled
Great traffic before 6:30am

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Los Angeles Fish Co!

Untitled
Untitled
Everybody is required to wear little hair nets and gloves and then you enter what is basically a big refridgerated warehouse of fish.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
I think we missed the rush where the restaurants pick their fresh seafood, so you could tell there were some areas where everything was gone. Wonder what was there…but they had crabs, scallops, oysters, fish, and were busy cutting up salmon and tuna!

Untitled
Untitled
So many things I want to come back and try sometime.

We’ll meet up later to cook all our goodies.

Didn’t end up keeping the hairnets on all day but we should have

Untitled
Untitled
Thank you Marie for suggesting the 6:30am meet up, worth it!!

Untitled
Untitled
On our way back still no traffic or anything. Nice.

Untitled
I’m definitely late on this, but I didn’t realize they sold Tim Tams at our grocery store!

Untitled
Set up to do some serious photo editing today.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
After watching a few youtube tutorials we figured out how to shuck the Kumamoto oyster with a screwdriver

Untitled
What a delicious treat

Untitled
My mom made me a sweater!!!!! Look at how beautiful it is. I love it.

Too much bacon

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Working into the evening. Marie came over and also worked in the other room.

Untitled
Then it was time to cook!

Untitled
Got the seafood out of the ice chest

Untitled
Untitled
We are attempting a seafood boil

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
So we boiled all the seafood separately. I really need to get bigger pots at some point. And I tried to make a Boiling Crab sauce dupe but it was a fail. My bad!

Untitled
Before sauce

Untitled
After sauce! We still ate it all.

Untitled
We’re going to the race track today! I thought this was too formal but I’m always trying to wear my coats but California life doesn’t really let me.

Untitled
Untitled
Horse racing today! Wooooo, first bet was a win!

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Everybody “studying” the races for the day but nobody really knows what we’re looking for.

Untitled
Untitled
Horses baby

Untitled

Untitled
Untitled
*Whew* The day was a blur of 9 races every 30 minutes. We had to pick our horses, look at them, grab food and drinks, and place bets. All in all I left with about $10, pretty good!

Untitled
Untitled
Craving thai iced tea boba!

Untitled
Caught another basketball game, the second playoff game. My high school lost unfortunately…was still fun to watch!

Worked on a pizza illustration! You can order any food you want and I’ll try my best to illustrate here.

Untitled
Untitled
Continued working on an illustration for Lauren

Untitled
Tried the Blaze doritos and Zach made smoothies. ALL about balance.

Untitled
Untitled
Pleased with my shirt purchase

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Met up with a former colleague at Cafe Dulce. How can you resist! I don’t even love sweets but everything looks so cute.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Hong Kong Milk Tea

Untitled
Untitled
Andrew! I miss you!

Untitled
Then I met up with Jill and her boyf to grab a beer at Boomtown.

Untitled
Untitled
BBQ sandwich and a game of Flash Point. It’s a collaborate game and we usually lose…but we won this time!!

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Derpin’

Untitled
Ended the night with some Coolhaus icecream. I got a fruit loops and bourbon flavor.

Untitled
Untitled
I’ll leave it here. Goodnight.

Hope you are having a good week! Much love friends.

  1. Sarah! I really love how you treat your photos, perhaps one day you can make a tutorial on how you edit your photos *_* (unless it’s a secret, of course!)

    The sweater your mom made you is so beautiful, and I legit laughed at Tweedy’s scared face with Zach! :))

    Ahhhh, I love seafood!!!

    1. I can try! Thank you, so nice.

      Happy belated Valentine’s to you too!

      The races are only $5 to get in to and you don’t have to bet if you don’t want. All-in-all pretty affordable entertainment for the day! If you are ever near a track, try it!

      Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir are seriously amazing. I love how much the Internet wishes they were dating haha.

  2. CUTE HAIRCUT GAL!

    Aw Tristan’s letter writing idea is lovely! I bet those kids loved getting such fun and thoughtful letters. Black Panther was so good, and it must have meant so much to the kids of Flint to have their own special screening of such a special film.

    Is your cousin playing with the same team you used to play for? I remember those posts of you and your basketball games!

    You are a true friend to Marie to go buying fish at 6:30am! I bet it tasted amazing when you cooked it – so fresh!!

    I told you this already, but I love the pasta poster.

    1. THXX!!!

      Yeah! My little cousin plays for the same team, I’m so proud. I miss playing basketball…made me think I should try to find a place to play or a local league.

      I want to be sure the pasta poster can print well, I need to find a service online to try. Who knows, maybe one day I’ll print a few. I made it for Lauren, she’s gifting it.

      Hope you’re well!

  3. Haha I’m glad I’m not the only person on here who remembers that gym from your wayyyy back ADIMLs. I’m definitely going to order off of fiverr but I haven’t been able to decide on a food! I love all of your big, comfy sweaters!!

    1. ❤ Thank you for considering ordering something! And yesss I love winter because I love sweaters and scarves but often LA winters aren't cold enough to wear my fun coats or sweaters. 😦

      1. They really aren’t! It was really disappointing when I lived down south, but also now that I live somewhere with more defined seasons, I’m freezing. haha
