MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: MARCH 26–APRIL 1, 2018! (SINGING, GRILLING, RUNNING)
Alex is in town from Hawaii! Karaoke, mini golf, grillin’ meats, and running a 10K race along the beach. Enjoy!
Monday evening in the neighborhood. Some atmospheric evening light.
Zach and I made a trip to Marukai, the Japanese market and came away with some goodies.
Haven’t had these in so long! I remember I used to go to my friend Rachel’s house in high school and we’d sneak them and her mom would tell us to only drink one a day but they were so good we wanted to have the whole pack at once.
Zach helped me cut up some things and now he has the pleasure of knowing how hard it is to cut up kabocha.
Attempting this recipe from the cookbook I picked out a month ago or so.
Made some adjustments in the ingredients based on what was at the market.
Yum! Seared chicken thigh.
It had been too long since I had destroyed something with my clumsiness
Pretty good! I would make the sauce for the side I think next time, but it was really good as leftovers too…hmm.
Good morning! Packing my leftovers.
Really looks gross but happy to have warm lunch instead of salad.
Went with Miranda and Tristan to Father’s Office
Ellie’s Brown Ale for me
Tables are scarce there, but we stayed long enough to see them all free up.
Heal my guts
We were meeting up with friends for karaoke and I saw Gabby parking her car. I picked her up and we parked my car and she’s such a *good* friend, she waited for me for like 7 minutes until it was 6pm so I could safely park my car for no ticket.
Alex Chamb in town and that means we sing for at least 3 hours.
More karaage and onigiris for dinner in the karaoke room
What is your go to karaoke song? I need to update my list…
Blockheads! They didn’t have melon so we went with oreos, graham crackers and rice cakes.
Alex looking stressed before Zach made him do VR.
It’s a foggy day in the neighborhood. Today I’m listening to Ear Hustle’s new episode. This one is about sex trafficking, and how two people (one a victim of trafficking and one the trafficker) had a conversation about their experiences. Restorative justice in action. It’s a pretty intense episode.
Usually June is this “gloomy” but I like it. My carpool buddy is originally from France, and she likes to say that people told her LA has no weather and that they are wrong haha. So there!
Our life changed when Tristan bought that frother.
2014 to February 2018. My team no longer manages the Getty’s Instagram, it changed names and owner departments. We had these books made to archive our work before the change happened. So weird to see all your digital work in little books (well not so little, they were hundreds of pages each).
Tristan puts in ear drops
~I wanna soak up the sun~
At the top of the tree of life there isn’t love: there is lulz, Jeremy’s thesis show about the economy of attention and virtual identities in this digital era.
Downtown from dusk to dark
Andrea’s doggo Kevin!
Zach picked up my prints for me! Finally. These are going to Lauren up in San Francisco. They came out pretty nicely. Still not sure if I like the white or red better.
Happy Friday! Woke up to Sufi sitting on his Mickey.
A Sara-Alex reunion over Gyu-Kaku grilling
Then we went from the grills to the mini golf course…
Full of teens and middle schoolers on a Friday night. A great peak into the youth life of Sherman Oaks kids. Sara won btw. And Alex got last place. Sooo.
Quick Glenn snuggle
Good morning, happy Saturday from a screaming Sufi
Did some computer work and photo editing with Tweedy tucked behind me like this.
Tweedy bath time
COME ON PLEASE
Leftover korean food from the two evenings before when we picked up stuff for Alex.
Toys R Us stores are all closing down, so we went to one near us to see what we could get on discount.
It was like a weird post-apocalyptic world where people took toys as survival supplies quickly and ran out
Our haul. An amiibo and two 2000 piece puzzles
The check out line
A stop at Ralphs and here we go
Listening to the new My Favorite Murder
Evening in the neighborhood
A perfect shrub
Here are Kiki’s for pasta night
Two kinds of pasta and I brought some garlic bread.
Elevating that leg
Chats and Peanut
Quick game of Friese’s Landlord
Good morning, it is Sunday at around 5:30 AM.
Great butter job, Alex
Today is the day we’ve all been trainin’ for, the 10K!
Everybody pumped to go.
10K is like 6 miles and change.
Tristan kicked all our butts and finished in 53 minutes!
We did it!
Little Easter medal
Ah, all finished and showered and it was like 9:30 am.
Wanted to start one of these but I realized that the table is too small! The puzzle won’t fit…
Decided to do this one my mom gave me a while back instead
Alex helped me get the puzzle started
Then we had to say goodbye!!!! 😦 😦 Miss you, Alex!!!!
Easter brunch with my parents and auntie and uncle
My mom got a pork and sweet potato hash and I got huevos rancheros which were really good!
The ones I’m wearing I’ve had from my mom for a few years. I love them so much. She found the same pair on EBay so I could have a new set without wearing hers out more…*treasures*
We went to see Isle of Dogs. My mom’s maiden name is the same as the evil mayor aha, she cracked up about that.
Preparing for May, getting that Easter discounted candy.
Home! Pretty exhausted.
Decided to try my usual wings recipe but do half for buffalo wings. Made a mix of Frank’s buffalo sauce, butter, salt and pepper to go on top of the baked half that had lawrys, salt and pepper.
They came out and they were *dare I say* really really good!
Later that night I worked on my post about day 1 in Roma. You can read part 1 here.
Thanks for reading! Hope you’re having a good week.
Much love friends.
