I’m writing from a sunny but rainy LA, where I’m sure a rainbow is imminent. I’m told we’re experiencing “May gray”, which is something I’ve never heard of before. I know that obviously April showers bring May flowers, and that Mayflowers bring pilgrims, and I even know about “June gloom”, but May gray is a new one. Is that just me?
I thought I’d keep things light today, as it’s been a crazy week around here. I thought I’d revisit a post series called Snapshot Thursday, where I share some of the random photos I’ve taken recently but not posted on the blog along with the actual names I gave them when I saved them to my computer. As you’ll see, the names I choose do absolutely nothing in the way of helping me find what I’m looking for at a later date. But sometimes they’re funny. Here we go.
Snapshot Thursday v.2

…As in freebies. The gym where I work was giving out free samples of these Meta “health bars”. I tried one and it wasn’t phenomenal (taste-wise or nutritionally), but people sure go crazy for free stuff.

This was a drive-by picture, while my dad was taking me on a tour of the town (I hadn’t been home in a while). The Roundup is one of maybe three bars, total, in any sort of convenient vicinity to my parents’ house, and yet I still refuse to go. It’s a very post-high school hot spot, and I’ve always felt like I wanted to save those awkward encounters for my actual high school reunion.

This is the treadmill in my parents’ garage that I use when I’m home. It’s not exactly the most inspiring location to get a workout in, but I’m just grateful for any sort of gym space. Equinox it is not.

While I was home, my sister, Katie, and nephew, Cooper, came over to play. My mom, a retired preschool teacher, rolled out this play mat for Cooper to play with and it was a pretty big hit. I tried to explain to Cooper that while this city has plenty of parking for all the cars, that is not always the case. Life lessons.

I took this picture mid-party while in San Francisco with my girlfriends. I was so proud of myself for remembering to drink water along side my moscow mules, that I took a picture for proof. I guess I’m that girl at parties.
Saved as: 50915 streets for days
This picture was taken by me leaning out of the Uber like a tourist, but it actually came out pretty well. We were driving through the Castro, as you can see, with rainbow flags flying and streets that went on for days.
Ok, I better finish up and hit ‘publish’ on this post before the clock strikes noon and my initial Good Morning is no longer a valid statement anywhere in the country. Happy Thursday, everyone.
Question: How do you name your files? I’ll take any and all suggestions.
