MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: FEBRUARY 4–10, 2019!

Sushi, hunting for Nandos sauce, hamburger dumplings (yes, all food-related highlights) and a weekend in the snow in Park City, Utah.

Enjoy!

Monday morning, wearing my Hufflepuff scarf to work why not.

Early morning sun touches the tops of the snow peaks. We’re out on the slopes today and I will *try* to ski.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Challenged myself a little more than usual (still doing greens, but at least did new ones…and a face of a blue accidentally)

Untitled
Was rewarded by hot chocolate

Untitled
Good selfie Zeen

Two boardgames later we had some short ribs for dinner (made by Chris in the Instant Pot) overall great food day

Untitled
Untitled
Good morning, a beautiful quiet morning puttering around before others wake up.

Untitled
Looks chilly out there

Untitled
But somehow I agreed to go out for one more half day on the slopes

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Definitely snowier and colder and again we did a few new slopes. Zach insists that I’ll get better if I can try to go days in a row. But my poor legs were sore from the day before…it was hard.

Untitled
Went back in a bit early and breakfast was being served. Zach stayed out to do scary black diamond slopes and such.

Untitled
Untitled
Empanadas and eggs and bacon for breakfast

Had a good game of Tortuga until we realized Margie didn’t understand the rules halfway through hahah.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Over to Zach’s aunt and uncles place, waiting for the next round of snow storm to hit.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
By the time we were leaving, it was full storm. Cars were skidding off the sides of the roads, the freeway was crawling so slowly with lanes out of view (covered in snow). It was a mess.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
But spoiler, we made it safely back to Los Angeles later in the evening, just a bit delayed.

Thank you for reading!

Some questions that you may or may not feel inclined to answer? I dug up some questions from a tag question website…so original. So! Let’s do it. I invite you to answer in the comments:

  1. What is the last album you listened to?
  2. How has your birth order affected you? (For example, you a middle child? Youngest?)
  3. What do you love about living in your neighborhood?

__

  1. What is the last album you listened to?
    Re-listened to Album by Girls while making dinner
  2. How has your birth order affected you? (For example, you a middle child? Youngest?)
    I’m an only child sadly…and I’d say I can be pretty stubborn in my way, but also have been trained to be an excellent mediator. I also value my independent alone time. Maybe there’s more obvious about me and my only-child-ness but that’s what comes to mind.
  3. What do you love about living in your neighborhood?
    The trees, and the ability to leave it quickly (as in access to the freeway, which makes it convenient to get around Los Angeles)

Much love friends.
