Look for Adventures Where'er You Are.

4.14.2011

Yesterday was lovely. 
The forecast called for rain all week, and yet the last few days have been sunny and bright. 
We took a trip to 'the big city' of Idaho Falls (not a big city-FYI) to get some maintenance done on the car before we head back to the Arizona. 
Which meant we were stuck in the old downtown of IF, for an hour, without a car. 

But the sun was shining and I was ready for a little adventure, so hand in hand, we started exploring this run down boulevard.

It was so full of character, I was practically squealing the whole time. 
We didn't have our good camera, but, once again, the iphone cam did not disappoint...
Can you tell I'm in love with texture?
Est: 1964
So classic.
*cornify*
Did you know I want Pink Flamingos in my yard one day? 
Is that white trash? Don't care.
Is that wall not the most beautiful thing you've ever seen? 
Oh my, I wish some of my photography clients lived in Idaho! 
This town was too good.
After our adventure of the street was over, we headed back to Big O and met some truly charming German Shepherds, who seemed quite fond of me. 
They were cuties. 
As Marcus filled out paper work, I kept myself (and those on my 'favorites' phone list) entertained with this gem I found in a waiting room magazine:
Fantastic.

How was your day?

also, do you get cuter every day? i'm just curious. / a liiiitle jealous.
and yeah, it's super white trash but i daresay you might be able to pull that one off.

I love the white trash question. I don't know why but seriously made me crack up.

Candice said...

Did you know that you are related to Scotty, of your Scotty's?

Gentrilee said...

hahahaha! That cat is awesome. :) THose photos are amazing! Seriously I would have never known they were from your Iphone unless you had told us! Someone told me "the best camera is the one in your hand" and it's true. It's just knowing what and how to capture the moment. :)

Gentrilee said...

OH! And are those the BP oxfords with the ribbon instead of laces?! I've had my eye on them FOREVER! (if that's them) How do you like them????

Sarah said...

ha ha I love it. Gosh I'd rather be in front of a rusted old wall than on top of a mountain when it comes to pictures. I love the character that texture can give a picture. As for your adventure, the exact same thing happened to me and matt and we ended up walking way farther then we thought, not getting back to the auto shop in time and then having to walk home. That was the day I knew what it was like to be a pioneer....or not.

those old neon signs are really cool. and yes, that wall is a winner!

Bnpdavis said...

Wow! I probably never would have guessed those were taken on a phone camera! Well done, iPhone! You're right about that place. So awesome! I don't think pink flamingos are white trash. My dad recently turned 50 and we filled the front yard with 50 pink flamingos. Yup.

Jessica Bruner said...

I love your high waisted jeans. The building in that town are awesome! They are so rustic. That's a great place to be stuck without a car for an hour.

2. The kitty picture is on the bathroom door of my friends next-door. It's "Their kitty", Bandit. Oh boy.
3. Tu es tres belle.
