MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: MAY 13–19, 2019!
A few days home sick from work turns into a weekend with out-of-town guests and a food tour through Los Angeles.
I’ve been trying to throw a sake pourer shape, and turns out I’m bad at it. BUT I will keep trying.
Some things just end up as bowls
My recent “haul” from pottery. I managed to recreate the robin’s egg bowl interior on another white bowl, plus some attempts at sake set, very clumsy but they were my first try.
Filming day for more of the Getty of Thrones videos we’ve been working on.
On Tuesday, I came home from work early the next day—felt feverish, achy, and my throat was just killing me. Spent the whole day just sleeping basically. Zach fed me some smoothies.
The next day, Marie came over to work with Zach on something and actually entered the biohazard zone that was me in bed
Feeling well enough to Stardew
Zach’s cousins arrived for a weekend
And that means taking them out to eat all over the city! First stop: OB Bear for Korean chicken wings and scallion pancake and spicy rice cakes.
Wearing the sweater my mom bought me for my birthday
We watched the clouds roll out
Thanks for my new sweater, ma! Love it.
Off Friday from work, but still had to upload this video. It’s always better to work in bed.
We put our names in at Din Tai Fung and then walked over to Eataly to smell all the cheeses and dream about purchasing a wheel of parmesan
Then we waddled our full butts up to Griffith Park to check out the Griffith Observatory
Enjoying all the views up at the observatory
Honoring that Charlie’s Angels Full Throttle was filmed here.
Tiki-Ti for some cocktails and the best bar mix
Another delicious feast, this time featuring Thai food from Jitlada
Good morning! We kicked off the Saturday by immediately diving into an escape room called Stash house. It’s been a while, but damn that was a fun time.
Time for some brunch at Openaire, on the rooftop of the Line Hotel in Koreatown.
Outfit change and we headed out for the evening.
Went to Three Weavers Brewing and played a few rounds of Decrypto.
My favorite Shin Sen Gumi ramen and mix-ins
Chris and Margie headed back to Utah, and then we went to get some bagels and soup. Then errands began.
Nothing better than grilling for my friends on a Sunday evening.
Game of Thrones finale, we are ready! (This was the before pic, and the after wasn’t notable enough to even capture hah)
Thanks for reading!
A question that you may or may not feel inclined to answer? So! Let’s do it. I invite you to answer in the comments:
When you have out of town visitors, where do you take them?
Much love friends.

We always take our visitors to the Saturday Market in Augusta. It’s a farmer’s market in the heart of downtown with great food, local produce, and fun booths to look at. My mother-in-law loves the plant booths and ended up taking 4 hanging baskets with her back to Indiana.
I live in Glasgow, Scotland, and I either take my guests to Kelvingrove Gallery and Museum and University of Glasgow for some Hogwarts style architecture, or I take them to my parents home 40 mins West which has beautiful rolling hills and views of the river. If the weather’s right they see beautiful deep sunsets and if its wrong… They see a really misty atmospheric view.
It’s the best.
(I never answer these questions but that one made me think!)
What a tiny world! I live in Augusta too; it freaked me out to see this.
Here in DC we do a night drive of the monuments and Ethiopian food! Lots of museum and zoo runs as well.
