Babies hanging out in my office

30 Mar
I had just bought them this new tunnel bed and it took them no time to find it. In fact Pip found it so soon I didn’t even notice she was inside it and ended up locking her in the office for a few.

But she’s a good barker so as soon as she was ready to be let out she let us know.

Shots From My Last Day On Alcatraz

28 Mar

Sarah and I both wrapped in Vancouver at the same time.

Partners to the end.

This is Sarah flipping the bird to everyone.

(Just kidding.)

Because we were going to be moving back to California for hiatus we thought it would be funny to take a picture in front of this truck that says “I [heart] Moving.” 

And this is the guy who whips us with chains when we get “out of line.” I’m surprised they actually posted this picture they’re usually very hush-hush about that guy.

Sweet (& Sara) Easter Basket!

28 Mar

Now I’ve talked about Sweet & Sara before.

These are not only the best vegan marshmallows, they are the best marshmallows period. And today I just got an awesome Easter basket full of their treats. Including S’mores with Bunnies on them and Peeps-like  “Skippers and Sunnys.”

They are a little tough to find but are totally worth it. If you check the refrigerated section of your nearest Whole Foods you might get lucky or you can just order them direct online. 

And not an ounce of animal by-product inside.

It’s a shame Beth is all the way in Hawaii the day these arrived.

 

Spoiler Alert!

25 Mar

There is only one day left before the Alcatraz finale.

Well this photo’s begging for a caption

19 Mar

Nice catch there Jo.

Touché.

You kids play NICE now…

Brown Dog Cafe

16 Mar

My favorite breakfast in Vancouver might be Brown Dog Cafe out in Point Grey, specifically for their Whole Wheat Vegan Pancakes.And I think the woman behind the counter has a sense of humor because after I placed my order at the counter the “number” she gave me for the table was this:

Hotel Alcatraz?!

That’s some serious promotion.

One More Detail about Aulani

11 Mar

I’m clearing out old pics and posts that I wanted to write about but never got around to it.

One final detail about the Aulani that I thought was a really nice touch was this little toothbrush and razor holder the housekeeper made with the towel.

I usually leave my stuff in a cup and housekeeping tends to remove them and place them on a washcloth.

But this little extra towel origami thing was pretty sweet. 

This a pic we took from the balcony. That look on my face is discomfort because Beth is holding the nice camera over the railing making me nervous for it.

 

P.S. I’m back in LA and we’re all together again. I’m looking forward to WonderCon and then a nice vacation in Hawaii, hopefully these crazy storms will have blown over by then. Don’t know if you’ve heard but they are getting battered  over there, it’s even been hailing. But Hawaii still feels like home so if our rental is still standing we’ll be going.

 

Aulani Menehune

8 Mar

One of the details I liked the most about the Aulani resort were the Menehune they have hidden all over the property. A Menehune is a type of “little person of the forest” in Hawaiian mythology. This is just a random selection that I found during my visit.

Last Day of Work = Bindsanity!

7 Mar

Yesterday was the last day of shooting in Vancouver for the crew. And because of that everyone was wearing bindis. So after I shot a little bit for the Legends of Alcatraz event this weekend at SXSW, I had our makeup artist Rebecca set me up with this sweet widow’s peak for the crew photo.
