Sunday was a busy day of working, as are most weekends nowadays.
In the morning I was back again doing hair and makeup for the set of Causality, a webseries, for a few hours. Afterwards, I headed out to a charity event for breast cancer called Speed Rack on Capitol Hill. I was helping to do hair and makeup for the female bartenders that were competing in a speed bar-tending competition, all in support of breast cancer research. I got to work with a few of my makeup artist friends and also hang out and watch the event for a bit, it was volunteer, but we got lots of free drinks and even a free bottle of booze to take home, pretty sweet. I think that was the first time I’d ever been paid in alcohol before; it was a fun event to watch though, these girls are super talented!
Jason joined me for a bit at the event, then we headed out to grab some food with a couple other of my stylist friends I’d been working with. It was a fun evening and a fun day of working; always nice to be able to work with a group of people that are talented and get along.
Here’s Sofie, chillin’ at my mom’s rocking the sweet sweater my grandma got her from Ecuador.
That Saturday, I had a wedding to do, so after having a nice family breakfast with Sofie, I headed over to Jason’s mom’s to drop Sofie off for the afternoon.
My wedding was up north, and after realizing I had left my airbrush kit at my studio, I doubled back to Seattle before finally jetting off to my wedding.
I had a super nice, and chill bride along with her whole bridal party, so it just made my life all the easier.
After getting everybody finished and sending them on their way, I packed up and headed back to pick up Sofie.
Traffic was pretty bad on my way back home seeing that it was rainy, dark and slick. I passed two accidents on my way to get Sofie!
After picking up the girl, I headed back home for a late night family dinner, and crashed after a long busy day.
Here’s Sofie’s picture that I took before heading out for the day; she’s sporting a new dress I got for her! I think it’s adorable.
Alrighty! I’m less than a week away from being caught up… again.
Last Saturday I had a wedding to do down South so Sofie headed back over to her grandma’s (Jason’s moms) to hang out for a bit while I worked. The wedding was party was nice, and easy to work with (always a plus!) so I was able to get done on time and be efficient (another plus!).
After I wrapped up with the bride, I headed back to pick up Sofie and bring her back home. We spent the rest of the day doing a little more building work and organization, I also tried to spend a little time organizing the house too! (Something I still need to finish doing…)
And then picture time… we had to resort to a bit of bribery. Sofie was trying not to listen, but we had her newest vice (chocolate) on our side.
The day I finally catch up on these posts, and I am not going to let myself down!
Well, on the bright side, at least I’m on the same month now.
The day after Halloween…
Sofie was feeling much better and Jason and I had a lot of work to do as it was the first of the month and all the building rent was due! Since I had a lot of errands to run, Sofie stayed with Jason’s mom for the day so we could make the best use of the day.
After having a fairly productive day, showing the apartment, cleaning, and getting paperwork organized, I headed back to pick Sofie up and bring her home. She was already bathed and fed so all I needed to do was get her back to our house and put her to sleep!
Here she is in her pj’s all ready to go back home.
Ahh yes, Halloween. Sofie’s second! Since Sofie was still feeling a little icky, I decided to stay home with her and just make Halloween a quiet one. I spent a bit of the day seeing if I could wrangle up a costume for myself, but I figured since I wasn’t going anywhere with Sofie, why bother? However, I did humor myself and pulled together a costume for Sofie with her assorted cheetah print clothing. I wasn’t able to find my ears and tail that I had worn last year on myself, so just made a make-shift headband with printed out cut-out ears. It actually didn’t turn out looking too bad.
Either way, Sofie was just as adorable as could be, and then of course shortly after taking these photos Sofie pukes all over her outfit, and that was that. Then of course, when I was trying to soak my puke-covered clothing in the tub so they wouldn’t stain, my phone fell into the water and shorted out. I dried it as quickly as I could then stuck it in rice as the internet told me to do, and I listen to the internet. I left it over night and just crossed my fingers it would work the next day.
I added a few extra photos in honor of just how adorable Sofie’s outfit was. I kind of wish I was able to take her out, but there’s always next year… and I promise our costumes will be Epic! I have a whole year to make up for after all.
Ahh yes, I’m going to get these posts done tonight! I will, I will! Now that I’m just a week from catching up to the present, I feel the determination in me kicking in…
Last Tuesday morning was a rainy one. I was scheduled to meet the photographer I was working on the photo series on the past month to pick up some boxes of bobby pins that I had left at the last shoot we had done. So Sofia and I drove down the street to meet him at a coffee shop and look over some of the photos he had taken. I was really happy with how everything turned out, and I’m really looking forward to seeing all the final edits come together. I think it’ll be really great!
After our meeting, my parents were in Seattle for a little bit so I met them briefly since they had a few things to drop off at my house; Sofie was screaming and upset the whole while back home, so when I realized we’d forgotten her stuffed bunny at the coffee shop I had to double back to go pick it up. Lo and behold she stops crying the minute we get the little guy.
It was such a rainy day, we couldn’t really go anywhere, so we spent the rest of the day at home just tinkering about until we met the person moving out next door for a final walk-through inspection.
Unfortunately Sofie was also a little sick, and a little puke-y, so we took it easy the rest of the night with her.
Being building managers is a lot of work, but I actually really like having the responsibility. But maybe I’m just weird, and I like being super organized and busy…
Either way, I just really like my building and my neighborhood, and I think Sofie likes Seattle much better than Renton too.
Here she is, rocking her new dress that my mom bought for her the weekend before. What a silly pants, those little faces!
Sunday, I had a wedding in the morning so Sofie stayed home to hang out with Jason while I went to work.
Once I got home, I had some time to relax, and Sofie did make one major accomplishment! She was able to go potty on the “big” toilet! It hasn’t happened again since, but I’m crossing my fingers that she’ll start to catch on soon…
Welp, as everybody parties this election night, I’m here sitting at home with Sofie since she is sick again. On the bright side, I can at least get these posts caught up, finally!
Last Saturday, I headed back over to my parents house in the early afternoon to pick up Sofie and my car. I stayed for an early dinner then headed back over to Seattle with Sofie before it got too late.
All in all a pretty normal Saturday, once we got home Sofie took a nice bath and plopped off to bed.
We grabbed this picture of Sofie before heading back home.
