MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: FEBRUARY 11–17, 2019!

Valentine’s day with a steak night at home, Zach-themed pottery, and ramen at lunch. I also spend some time with my parents, get into Pen15, and eat too many spicy Dorito tacos before going to the horse races.

Enjoy!

Good morning! Our bag from Utah is still sitting right in the middle of the kitchen.

Untitled
Looks like the veggies have survived the weekend

Untitled
However, my chia pet did not.

Off to work

Tuesday—Zach whips up some shishito peppers and salmon

Sufi and I wait for dinner

Untitled
Untitled
Delicious salmon, but the shishito peppers had so many unusually spicy ones.

Untitled
Untitled
Tweedy joins the party. Sometimes I think he’s a liquid that forms to any container.

Wednesday morning, catching my carpool. The rain has left behind a trail of gravel.

Untitled
In Tristan’s cars there are extra passengers.

Puffy turtle at work

Untitled
Zach’s mom sent some cute ass baby photos for Valentine’s Day. Zach’s love for dogs started young.

Untitled
Valentine’s present—a small Zach head I made in pottery studio.

The rain has returned, and today I’m at the Getty Villa. I brought my laptop and wrapped it in a plastic bag because it didn’t fully fit into the backpack.

In the office, cute Valentine’s donuts and cards.

Untitled
For lunch, I got a special delivery!

Untitled
Untitled
YAY poke and spicy miso ramen

Untitled
Untitled
Way better than my normal lunch for sure

Untitled
Took Zach to see an exhibition at the GRI, and then parted ways. Thank you for lunch!

Untitled
Back at home, mini-grocery shop complete.

Untitled
Threw on the dress I got for Christmas from Japan, it’s flowy and big and I love it

Untitled
I’m in charge of potatoes tonight

Untitled

Untitled
Untitled
Garlic potatoes ready for the oven

Manhattans while the potatoes roast and the steaks rest for their big night.

Untitled
Rub garlic on the bread, rub tomato on top, add some olive oil…enjoy!

Untitled
YAY, they survived.

Let us feast

Untitled
After spending much time in storage, the pinball machine Zach got from his dad’s old house is finally up and running.

Peek-a-boo

Back to the Villa, driving with my car Yeti protector

Another gloomy day

The beach from Pacific Coast Highway

Untitled
Untitled
Sometimes you have to stop and watch some surfers

Untitled
Untitled
Back to the Center

Untitled
Untitled
In time to have my leftover ramen

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Rainy night—got home and watched a video about a salt expert guessing cheap versus expensive salt because boy do I always want to know more about salt.

Untitled
Another round of Manhattans

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
It is time for the Ru Paul Drag Race All Stars 4 finale!

Untitled
Untitled
Drag with a side of hot wings

Untitled
Untitled
Saturday morning and we’re getting some orchid action!

Untitled
My mom and Zach dote on the money tree who has been feeling unhappy inside. My mom thought maybe there was too much soil packed too tightly.

Untitled
Untitled
Tweedy get out of there

Untitled
Sufi the explorer

Untitled
Got the hummingbird feeder set up

Untitled
Untitled
Quickly planting these chives my mom bought us

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Brunch with my parents at a pub nearby. I tried for the most English breakfast thing on the menu, but it wasn’t a full one for sure.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Caught my dad helping my mom put on her shoes…wow, a real life Cinderella moment.

Untitled
Gave up on this winter puzzle, it was uninspiring and I didn’t want to finish it. So! I decided to quit.

Untitled
Busted out the Haunted Mansion puzzle yay!

Untitled
Binged all of Pen15 which I truly connected with and loved dearly. It’s gross, funny, and as stressful as being a girl in 7th grade felt—plus it really beautifully captures the intimacy of a early teen friendship where you both are teetering so closely between childhood and teenage life unsure of how or if you should cross over.

Untitled
Plus one of the co-creators/stars is half Japanese too so extra relatability points. She’s cuter tho.

Untitled
Untitled
Later that day we took advantage of a free delivery for Taco Bell promotion and like SICKOS ordered a true feast to watch Spiderman with Rob.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Our trilogy tradition continues, now with Spiderman from 2002.

Untitled
Untitled
Sunday, a mildly rainy day but we had planned to spent it at the Santa Anita Race Track. (This was before all the news of the horse deaths came out, which has been so sad to see! 21 horses this season have died at Santa Anita apparently, potentially attributed to the usually wet winter we’ve had in Southern California)

Untitled
Untitled
Gobbled down a half a sandwich before the first race

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Will it rain? Will it not? (It did)

Untitled
Placing those steep $2 bets

Untitled
A brief Lunar New Year celebration moment

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Back to gambling and walking to and from the stables to more closely observe the horses.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Follow that intuition

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Loser

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Tiny losing bets everywhere

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
The sun peeked out!

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
We even got a rainbow!

Untitled
Untitled
Well that rainbow was lucky for somebody…

Untitled
Untitled

Afterwards, we went out to eat some house special crab, chow mein, and salt and pepper shrimp mmmmmmm. Craving it all over again. A beautiful Sunday with friends.

Thanks 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 hardest part of your job?
  2. If you had time to do volunteer work, what would you do?
  3. If you could give your younger self any advice what would it be?

  1. What is the hardest part of your job?
    It’s a fun challenge to work with so many folks across my organization—I’m always trying to learn to be a better communicator and collaborator, listening to where people are coming from and doing the best work together we can. Everybody’s work style is different.
  2. If you had time to do volunteer work, what would you do?
    I used to be a camp counselor, I miss working with kids.
  3. If you could give your younger self any advice what would it be?
    Be a better listener,  you’re not always right, learn about the world, be nicer to your mom, and hug Yoko even more.

__

Much love friends.
