full-on christmas cheer this weekend. george was tied up with pesky finals, but I was free to enjoy the december weekend.


  • spent some time fighting with the pilot light on the heater, as it has been annoyingly chilly in the apartment. the lack of insulation makes it literally warmer outside.
  • christmas tree shopping!! I will never get over how much trees, even tiny ones, cost in LA. I guess that’s the small-town-most-years-i’ve-cut-down-my-own-tree in me. whatever, it’s worth it.
  • falafel at the farmers market, followed by a craft beer run to whole foods (we found some good ones…)
  • came home and hung out, then natalie and lucas crashed with us after doing an LA photo shoot


  • brunch at house of pies in los feliz, before natalie and lucas headed back to san diego
  • did some shopping in los feliz, then made the mistake of making a target run… not fun on a saturday in december.
  • tried to take the camera to a repair shop, but alas, the legend repairman luis only works during the week.
  • came home & decorated the tree with our new ornaments and lights!
  • ordered indian take out (crown of india, of course) and finally watched away we go. such a cute movie. <3 john krasinski.


  • early morning iyengar yoga w/ rosalie. first time trying yogaworks, so we were able to sign up for 2 weeks for $30. first time trying iyengar too, and the sweat factor was a little low. still sore today, but I prefer a more fast-paced practice.
  • larchmont farmers market and peet’s coffee
  • came home and made breakfast pasta carbonara, pretty tasty
  • after that it was full-on santa’s-elves-go-crazy mode- stamping, calligraphying, knitting, cutting, pinning, all to the tune of christmas albums. george emerged from studying and was astounded at my capacity to make such a mess of my desk/the entire living room/dining table in just a few hours… good times. i blame the fresh pine scent of the christmas tree.
  • laundry, indian leftovers, and finding out our change jar was full enough to cash in for our beehive blender! what to save for next?
