I think I ended with July adventures, so let's revisit August and see what happened then.
Technically the film festival was at the end of July, but who's counting? Kirsten and I found the dead witch and the yellow brick road.
And then we made it into the Emerald City! It had popcorn, snacks, movies, and a wizard.
There was an extra Dorothy hanging out. Awesome braids.
All the film submissions are on this Youtube page. The Most Interesting Mormon ones are always pretty good. I think Urban Climber was the winner. They're all under 4 minutes, so go check a couple out! Disclaimer - I didn't think this year's films were as good as last year's films.
After films, there was food - Bossa Nova, of course. This chicken was wrapped in bacon in a gorgozola sauce with some garlic bread. New favorite dish!
I went to church at our funky building.
Darryl came to LA for a work project. We had dinner and I took him to Cafe 50s for a shake. He couldn't believe how good it was. (Get the the Sunshine Shake, you will love it).
I was Olympics OBSESSED.
I dressed up for Team USA.
Conveniently, my work computer stopped booting up. I gave it a rest one weekend, and come Monday morning, she didn't want to work any longer. This is sort of a problem when you work from home, so I had a few days to kill. I went here:
The beach at Huntington because this gal was in town.
This poor little guy had a bloody wing. I wish I could've helped :(
Oil rigs abound in HB. Do the neighbords get a cut?
Despite the gorgeous views and knowing that I couldn't have been at work since I had a broken computer, I was still pretty stressed out.
August challenge - drink more water. Two of these bottles a day.
I should've gone to Melrose night, but I didn't. Next week . Look at all those food truck options! Some of my favorites - right there.
I think this is from a neighborhood run that I did?
Okay, more updates later.
