scenes from the weekend: venice bar crawl, saturday beach walks, an obnoxious afternoon of shopping, tacos at james beach (from the movie i love you, man!), hollywood sign hike (and yoga attempts), cold brew coffee from stumptown, and an amazing sunday brunch with three lovely ladies.
If you look closely you can see that the whole world is garden- The Secret Garden This weekend was pretty brilliant. Yes it had hard work attached to it, but it made all of the wonderful things we did oh so magical. There is something just so beautiful about working farmers markets, mainly though it’s because everything is beautiful. My dear friend Alexis lead the most beautiful yoga class on…
My Friday reads. Finished The Scorpio Races on Saturday (such a good book holy cow), still working through Donna Tartt’s The Goldfinch (audiobook) and Christopher Isherwood’s A Single Man (ebook). Really enjoying former, on the fence about the latter at the moment (loved the movie adaptation so I’m reserving judgement until i finish the entire book).
Pouty dogs thought they wanted my food. Pouty dogs did not understand that they don’t like carrots.
My new face mask matches our bathroom walls!
These fox mugs look super sneaky and smug. I almost bought one.
Happy hair accident: Manic Panic Atomic Turquoise in my blonde streaks gave me an awesome mermaid-y ombre effect! Can’t wait for the weather to clear up so I can take pictures of it in full sunlight.
Dinner and drinks with Dad! I’ve officially added cosmos to the list of Drinks That I Like and I continue to defy my step-mom’s prediction that I’d be a “fruity drink girl.”
Bear decided to try to bring part of the yard in with her. Yay for rain, but boo for having to bust out the garden hose every time she spends more than 5 minutes outside.
Zoey conked out early after hours of running around with the small dogs and getting her nightly Benadryl. Keeping a very close eye on her since she’s starting to have allergy flare-ups again and we’d rather not have to put her back in the Cone of Shame for months again.
Wrote a stolen scene from when Aaron was in hospital (so over
the weekend in real life timing).
needed to write a small moment of happiness after today’s episode.
Aaron stirred as he heard the door to his room open. He squinted to allow his eyes to adjust to
the florescent lighting of the hospital room.
Claire, his nurse, mouthed a greeting before checking his cannula and
doing his routine observations. She gave
him a thumbs up to indicate that everything was within normal range. As she changed his bag of fluids, she gave
Aaron a friendly smile and nodded her head towards the end of the bed.
“You got a good one there,” she said. Aaron followed her gaze to a find Robert
slumped forward in his plastic chair head on Aaron’s bed, in deep sleep.
“Robert?” Aaron asks,
scrubbing his face with his hands.
“Yeah. Seems like the
perfect boyfriend. Dedicated, concerned,
easy on the eyes.” Claire said the last
bit with a chuckle. “Shame he’s taken. I could do with a guy like that.”
Aaron furrowed his brow in confusion. “Who told you that he was my boyfriend?”
scenes from last weekend: phil vassar on friday (we got so close!), saturday did a LOT of prep for our strolling west loop dinner (i made crepes) and so many people handmade yummy food like pasta and meatballs, spanikopita, and periogis, and sunday i had an event to work so a vendor and i went to capital grille for some really awesome (and cheap!) steaks. it was fantastic.
this week has been one for the books. i’m super emotional, stressed, tired and all around a mess. i’m looking forward to relaxing (and working a little) all weekend and just destress.
