In n Out

buttney: kill her!
buttney: save the burgers!
me: YES

In N' Out(our beloved California burger chain) might become the next McDonald's after grand-daughter and inheritor Lynsi Martinez, takes over the chain when she turns 35. Why? Why?

A few articles here and here and a new book out all about the controversy over Martinez taking over and potentially making In n Out a franchise. :( Sad times.

Buy this vintage paper paraphernalia here at etsy.

This couple only generated one bag (ONE BAG!? ONE BAG!!!) of trash over the course of a year.
How is that possible?

Really? Check it:

The Annenberg Foundation has set up a free community beach house right here in Santa Monica, complete with free pool (swimming pool, view deck, changing room with showers, restrooms and lockers), tennis courts, activities, and more.
FOR FREE. I don't know how long the free part will hold up, but yea, so far so good.
Reserve your pool passes here.

I don't know what I'm doing.

*update: I'm sewing a complete dress for the first time. It's for my Apparel Process II midterm. Definitely has not been easy. The first day I started (and this is after hours of patternmaking and cutting out the fabric pieces) I worked for 6 hours straight in my mom's friend's garage, where she has an industrial grade sewing machine from the days she used to own a sewing production company. She's a pro; she raised 3 kids as a single mom with her pattern making and sewing knowledge. I'm lucky enough to bike a few blocks over to her house and have her help me. All that experience hopefully rubs off on me. Finished product update soon...I hope...

Something about these thumbprint rings...
It'd be cool if you could customize them with your/someone's thumbprint.



I made a flower cake! And marshmallow frosting! Guess who has lots of time on their hands! Ok, ok, but not for much longer anyway...
