{foto friday : living vicariously through my camera phone – including like, three selfies!}

4 Apr

hey gang.  hope you are all doing well.

this week was a rollercoaster as far as emotions and happenings go.  and the only rollercoasters i like are the ones i build on rollercoaster tycoon and pretend ride.  and i’m actually serious about that, just ask my former roommate and still one of my best friends… he’ll tell you about my non-love of rollercoasters or things that go fast, in general… like waterslides. :/

nevertheless, here are a few happy highlights from my week via the shake-it app… {still my fav.}

mepixie-1

i went pixie, again!  i love it; brings out the new-yorker in me – and i just feel more like myself this way…

schwepps-1

i happily spent a ridiculous 75 cents for this little cute bottle of club soda.  i saved and reused the bottle for my liquid vitamins… i just love glass and i just love tiny things! 😉

image

it “sunny snowed” this week – and i am amazed my iPhone was able to capture the little flakes.

image

on that same day, my boss let me borrow his sunglasses ‘coz i forgot mine and he insisted they would make me cooler… i insisted that wasn’t possible. 😉

image

and despite the friggin mercurical weather, i planted my seeds…

image

and i hope to god they do not end up looking like this {clearly} genetically modified apple. i mean seriously, have you looked at conventional produce in the last couple years? it’s like that movie “cloudy with a chance of meatballs.”  — the food is getting abnormally large!  am i crazy or should an apple NOT be the size of two of my fists!??!?!  i digress…

deer-1

i had several very intense and wonderfully silent moments with my “neighbours”…

sopris-1

then there’s mount sopris… which just makes me happy for existing.  and – i applied for a job with this view. uhm, yes please!

image

this is where i currently work – it’s kind of like going to heaven every day – only with more people 😉

image

and sometimes snow doesn’t piss me off… cuz it’s pretty…

overit-1

but it’s also annoying… especially in april.

the end.. for now.

have a great weekend, ya’ll! ❤ 😉

xgames-13

walking through the filthy snow-packed hills during x-games this weekend, i became inspired… and thus, i have begun working on an actual artistic series called “the dark side of snow” 😉

i’ve been taking my camera with me to fotograph such things, but i wanted to share these few i snapped with my iphone.  do you ever stop to look at the details these old and dirty piles of snow create?! between the melting and re-freezing and various winds and plow trucks, snow forms from fluffy white flakes into slushy mixed-coloured mounds and stark white turns pitch black. it transforms from graceful to treacherous, from beautiful to ugly, from light to dense, from snow to something else entirely…

by the way, it’s almost time for mercury to go retrograde again… 😉

{it’s the first foto friday of 2014 : and i’m still obsessed with the “shake-it” app}

3 Jan

i don’t care if it’s like, 5 years old and moreover, that it resembles an old-school polaroid foto. i’m sure there are way “cooler” apps out there now, but i still love the good ol’ shake-it app.

and here are some snapshots from my week :

newyears2013-2

i enjoyed this amazing burger from the best place in the valley…

newyears2013-3

i made myself these amazing crab legs for new year’s eve celebration…

newyears2013-4

then followed it with this mostly amazing tradition for lunch the on new year’s day… i say mostly because it was a little dry, but i ate it anyway. 😉 Continue reading

{it’s the final foto friday of 2013!}

27 Dec

and this is what happened this week :

———

fotofridaydecebmer2013-4

i worked on christmas day for the first time in my life… which was kind of okay and kind of weird. naturally, i brought my vitamix breakfast cookies to the office – and all 4 dozen got devoured! 😉

fotofridaydecebmer2013-1

callee was adorable – every second of every day… just look at her! 😉

fotofridaydecebmer2013-2

i visited the best breakfast place in town… these mugs are personal for the local regular guests – how cute is that?! 😉

fotofridaydecebmer2013-3

it was so damn cold in the mornings, the windshield-washer fluid in my friend’s car totally froze… but also created this cool pattern 😉

fotofridaydecebmer2013-5

and i saw this family of ravens… they tend to follow me around – they are my spirit animal, no doubt! 😉

i’m pretty sure this was a mama and a bunch of babies. although i’m not certain because it seems odd that they would have offspring in the winter, but i didn’t feel like researching it… does anyone know when crows/ravens typically mate and reproduce?

happy last friday of the year!!

😀

i mean, seriously. the temps have been beyond frigid lately and i’m wearing more layers and socks than any one person probably should… but we’re due for a heat-wave this week – we’re going to hit 32 degrees!!!

{foto friday : more kitty yoga}

12 Jul

the first time i captured callee on my yoga mat, she kinda posed for me

calleeyoga-2

this time she was extra wiggly… movin’ all around on that thing, and bustin’ out poses i’ve never seen before… 😉

calleeyoga-1

she’s all like, “namaste – mrrreow” … seriously though, she is sooooooo beyond chatty!  the most talkative cat you’ll ever meet. one day i’ll get a good video of her talking and post it for you…

{just some pics from june}

11 Jun

the temps were absolutely perfect last week – 70-80 degrees during the day and cool nights that require only a light sweater, but flip flops are comfortable.  the smell of the grill lingers in the air, the frangrance from the various blooms waft from every angle, the sun is warm, the air is warm, the days are long… and that means i take lots of little walks.

here’s a few shake-it app inspired fotos i snapped last week while wandering around my ‘hood…

justjune-1

devouring the best pastrami sammy EVER – from masterpiece delicatessen in the highlands… my new favourite spot!!

justjune-2

my neighbourhood kind of reminds me of new york…
