My Week in Sketches

7:12 AM

Playing with my friends' kids can be dangerous when I'm so outnumbered...

I got to decorate Easter eggs with some little buddies, which I enjoyed.

An awkward drawing of me at soccer practice...

I got to attend the Easter service at the Hollywood Bowl for the first time, and it was a really great experience. I was up at the very top and it was a cool vantage point to take it all in.

I spent Easter evening and the next day at my parents' house, before driving my dad to the airport.

Back at work, I've been found out! Only a few of my coworkers knew I ever sketch-blogged...until this week.

We had a really good staff meeting this week. I know that sounds lame, but it was really great.

My coworkers and I got to tour our new future office together. It was so fun having all of us in there at once, with so much life within those walls!

My little 6-year-old buddy just lost one of her front teeth, and it was quite the victory.

A good friend of mine just turned 30, and I was glad I got the chance to celebrate it with her.

Our pastor overturned some tables as he was giving his sermon on was pretty intense from the second row!

My small group met in an old restaurant I'd never been to before. It had dim lighting and big booths and red leather chairs...It seemed like the mafia would eat there. Or guys smoking cigars.

My boss has been out of town for a few days, which prompts me to gleefully take over his office.

My friends invited me to lunch with a dramatic car-pulls-up-and-someone-shouts-"Get In!"-technique. Very effective.

Last Thursday was fun because there were only two of us in our normally-overflowing office, so I was super-productive.

I visited our future office space with our tech guys, and was happy to have their expertise at hand.

I got to play soccer on Saturday! I hadn't played in 14 years, and it felt like coming home. I've missed it so, so much!

I spent part of my weekend sanding and staining some wood that I'm hoping to make into a headboard.

My friend and I were able to acquire some wood from the bleachers that are being torn out of the Hollywood Bowl! I love the idea of making things out of it and knowing the history these planks have been through.

I like my boss a lot. He's pretty great, and I feel like we're a good team.

My friends and I went out to lunch and they tried to serve us "Fanta Cola" when we ordered Cokes...which did not go over well.

 One of my good friends is a bit of a tech (end everything else) expert, so the poor guy always gets cornered by me asking for advice. 

I finally got to watch part of the movie "Frozen", which I've heard so much about. It was being narrated by a four-year-old, but I didn't mind.

 I got to celebrate my wonderful friend's 30th birthday (with an equally wonderfully chocolate fountain!)

At church on Sunday, an analogy was made that required several balls of yarn to be thrown into the congregation. It made for quite a spectacle, all of us strung together.

This is when I accidentally agreed to go out dancing with friends on Saturday...which I quickly took back. Dancing at a club is pretty much my worst nightmare, no matter how fantastic the company.

I joined a soccer team this week! This is SUCH happy news in my life. I've been whining about a "soccer-shaped hole in my heart" for YEARS. And I finally found a league and a team and suddenly I have the willpower to go running!...Well, lightly jogging until I'm out of breath. Close enough.

I finally got a chance to connect with my friend who just became a new mom, and hear all about her new little baby.
