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.
Sunday, back on set of Causality again. Also, the Super bowl, so most everybody I knew was more excited about that but hey, I do makeups, I don’t watch sports. My dad was pretty excited though ’cause his favorite team was going this year (the 49’ers) sad for him that they lost though…(posting late enough that this isn’t a spoiler right?).
Again, lucky for me, they cut me loose from set after lunch, so I was able to jet back over to my parents house to be home with Sofie that night. I was worried that it would be another long day and I wouldn’t have been able to see her until Monday, but I was super happy to be able to go home to her!
Any time I’m away from her for long periods of time I get withdrawals, I love that little girl so much.
Snuggling up with her is just the best thing ever, and it was a great end to my weekend.
Sunday, Sofie spent one last day at my parents house while I spent another afternoon working on set of the webseries (Causality).
My call time for set was a little later in the day, so before leaving in the morning, Jason and I got up a little early to do some cleaning around the building. Our management duties had been a bit neglected over the holidays, so we did a clean sweep and got some organizing done as well.
Then I left for set and we spent another day out in the elements filming, so very very cold, I’m glad I bundled up! Once I got home and un-thawed again I was so tired!
However, one of my best friends from high school, Amber, was in town visiting for the week, so I went out to grab some coffee and catch up with her. I wanted to be able to spend as possible while she was visiting.
Amber is staying with another old friend along from high school, so I went down to pick them up and it was a nice little reunion. It honestly felt so surreal walking around back in Seattle with these girls, but it was also pretty nice too to see some old friendly faces.
Alrighty, a couple more catch-up posts from this weekend and then I’m going to allow myself time to do some fun stuff (and by that I mean, play some video games before bed.)
Saturday Sofie was off at my mom’s for the weekend, so I left the house early that morning to head out to the web series I was working on with my friend Autumn for the weekend.

It was FREEZING. Took about 10 minutes to even thaw my car out to drive anywhere, then we spent the whole day shooting in the basement of a cold house. Even though it was cold, it was definitely better than being outside.
The shoot was plenty fun though, and it’s always nice working with my friends. I’m really looking forward to seeing how this all is going to come together.
I headed home later that evening to warm up and relax, Jason sort of got me back into playing video/computer games, nerdy RPG stuff, and I’m not too proud to say I’m getting pretty into it again! Hence, why I want to have some time to play before going to bed.
There does, after all need to be a balance between work and play. 🙂
Thanks to my parents for this adorable picture of Sofie from Saturday.
