Rainy Days and Dog Bites

Hello loveys. It's a rainy day in Colorado. It didn't start out that way. This morning Laura and I took off to spend some time in Colorado Springs and Manitou. First we took a little walk around Garden of the gods. As we're walking, there's this little old couple walking their little dog. I think it was a Maltese or Shih Tzu or something like that. They're walking right past us and Laura looks down at the dog and he runs up and bites her ankle. Hello! The dog nipped at her ankle! The little old man just pulled on the leash and was like, "Hey, hey now," to the dog. Laura started laughing as she said, "Um, that dog just bit me. Who else would this happen to?" It was kinda funny. But I mean, it was a little dog; it randomly bit Laura; and the owners weren't the least bit concerned about it.


Anyway, we went on to Manitou, which was awesome. Such a fun little town. (The pictures above and below were taken there today.) Come to think of it, I should have taken more pics. I'm actually becoming a little obsessed with Instagram. But I didn't take too many. There's this little place there called Safron (combined with Black Cat books) that had amazing dresses. So amazing. Unfortunately, so expensive. Still, cute store. Laura and I had a great time. I need to go back and take the Jeffster to the arcade. It had all kinds of vintage games.

And hey, I am so excited that I'm almost to 100 followers! So if you're reading this and not a follower, please just go ahead and FOLLOW! For the sake of my self-esteem, people! I need you! :) And as for the loveys already following, thanks so much for listening to this cycle of nothingness. You guys are the syrup on my pancakes.
