My Week in Sketches

This was my week!

I'm not a drinker at all...so when I was the one claiming our evening's alcoholic beverage got stronger towards the end, it was assumed that I was just a wuss.

I attempted "pancake art" for the first time, making pancakes in lots of fun shapes.
My favorite was when the four-year-old asked if I could make her a "double-decker couch like in 'The Lego Movie'", which resulted in this:
(I like to think that perhaps I am the first person in human existence to create a double-decker couch pancake.)

At my soccer game this week, the other team's coach and substitute players kept "warning" their team about me, as if I was a threat that needed extra coverage. I was so flattered.

I went out to sushi with friends, and I tried not to make it obvious that I don't like sushi...which lasted about four minutes.

Playing and eating and chatting with my friends' kiddos...

This is me in shock as the fire marshall approved our building after weeks of not approving us. I just couldn't believe how nonchalantly we finally passed inspection! 

When I have a straw that sticks really far out of my cup, it's one of my biggest pet peeves. I cannot stand it. So my mind imploded a little when I discovered one of my friends chooses it on purpose.

My Week in Sketches

My friends and I discovered a dice game called “Tenzi”, which involves a lot of rolling dice and shouting nonsense.


You know how sometimes kids try to give you a present, but it’s really just a wooden skewer that they colored with marker? Yeah.


My friend and I had THE BEST DAY watching a Downton Abbey marathon.

I went to my friends’ wedding and it was like a magical reunion with all kinds of wonderful people. It was such a great time.


This week included a spur-of-the-moment trip to my parents’ house for an evening, which is always a delight.


My coworker and I discovered how tricky it can be to hang sticker-signs on glass.

I was trying to squeeze out of a table where there was no leg room, and it ended with me virtually somersaulting out of the booth.
