New blog and doggie and hot springs and weekend!

Well. I've been reading tons of design blogs, and I just added approximately ninety bajillion of them to my Google Reader, but I was struggling to remember all the pretty things I liked. So, I started a Tumblr blog where I'm posting all the interior design images that I find attractive or inspiring. It's really fun. I spent awhile going over archives of a bunch of sites that I liked, and I feel pretty caught up now, so I can just add photos as they get posted, for the most part.

Also, I showed the blog to Torsten? And he hated pretty much every one. Really, it's a miracle that we managed to agree on a house. But actually, I think he'd like the things about the pictures that I like, once he saw how they were applied in our own house. He just has trouble extrapolating from model homes to our own lived-in space.

In other news, we went on a hike out in the foothills last weekend, and had a great time. The landscape was gorgeous (full set here):

And Montana enjoyed herself, despite still having to wear her t-shirt (we figured out that we needed to tie it up, 80s-style, to prevent her from tripping):

But the good news is, she got her staples out yesterday and she's healing great, so no more t-shirt for her. We even took her to the dog park last night, and she was fine. And perfect timing, too, because this evening we're going to a hot springs as a pre-birthday trip for me, and she's coming with us. Though of course she won't be coming to the actual hot springs, there is a river nearby and I'm sure she'll appreciate going on lovely nature walks without having to be humiliated in front of the other dogs in her hobo-esque t-shirt.

It should be an awesome weekend. I'm excited for my first-ever hot springs trip, and for turning 25 in just a few days. I hope you all have awesome weekends too!


  1. sigh.. i do love CO scenery. so fantastic.

    hah, i had forgotten about poor montana's tshirt!! i think she looks surprisingly stylish w/the 80s knot :-)

  2. Those look like vacation photos, not every day life photos. Lucky you!

  3. Happy early 25th! I think it will be a great year for you. :)

    Glad to see that Montana is healing well! I think that the shirt is awfully cute, though.

  4. Hee. Okay, NOW I'm saying something. Montana!! As a dog name. I love how her collar is purple, though I'm not at all surprised.

    I think you're rubbing off on me. I never disliked purple, but I never really considered it either - for decorating or wearing. Now every time I go shopping I end up with something purple. You're definitely to blame for this new purple infatuation I have.

    And I'm so glad you live in Colorado - such a beautiful area.

  5. I'm excited to hear how you like the hot springs- it's something I'd like to try out myself!

  6. I love me some Natural Hot Springs. They're amazing! (Although, I hope yours don't smell like sulphur...because that can get nasty.)


  7. Happy early birthday! that t-shirt is just too funny.

  8. All the things you've accomplished before you turn 25 is pretty darn remarkable, my dear. Happy pre-birthday weekend!

  9. Have a fantastic weekend! It sounds awesome =)

  10. I sure hope you guys have a great time!

  11. Hot springs! My favorite! Which ones are you going to?

  12. My goodness, I'm gone for a few days and you've got a dog, bought a house, turning 25 and who knows what else? Congrats on all of it! What an exciting time to be YOU!

  13. I love almost all the pictures you have posted on your Tumblr blog. They all look so nice and clean and organized.

  14. I've been silent for a few posts now because I know ZERO about buying a home, but decorating? Decorating, I can do! I love subway tiles in kitchens and bathrooms! And clustered art hangings. And bold colors for paint and accents.

    P.S. Montana is adorable as always. Don't think I could say that enough.

  15. Those outdoor pictures ARE beautiful and we're loving the cool t-shirt.

    I was just thinking about a tumblr blog the other day but I can't make up my mind. The ceiling in the nursery photo scares me a bit, but both the green in the bathroom and the green in the living room are fantastic!

  16. I'm glad that you guys are settling into your new surroundings.

    I gave you an award on my blog.

  17. Those pictures look so great. Your dog looks adorable in the shirt.

  18. Great pictures! I just started following you on Tumblr too. I'm

  19. I think the design blog is a great idea to help you keep track of things you like. I used to paste pictures from catalogs and magazines in a sketchbook for the same purpose, but your way is much more "new school." :-)

  20. I recently came accross your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I dont know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

  26. Hello everyone! Who knows where to upload the film Avatar?

  27. I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
    The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

    The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

    For the first 10 clients the price 15$

    To all clients free updating and support.

    Behind purchases I ask in icq: 588889590 Max.
