SO I found this website. I'm ready to decorate my dorm now, please!

Monday, June 27, 2011 § 0

It's called Houzz.com.  You can go and look through pictures of houses and the decor inside, garnering inspiration for your own decorating projects.  And THEN you can create an Ideabook of pictures that you like and want to group together for an upcoming renovation/decorating change/etc.  Here's a few of my favorite pictures: 



Vintage Renewal Loft eclectic kitchen

Loft shots eclectic living room


Office with lacquered black walls eclectic home office

Montlake traditional home office

This last photo is going to be the one I base my dorm off of. I love the idea of mixing pure whites with wood and other dark, boho textures. I can't wait!

I'm getting way too excited about this. But it's fun. So I refuse to chill out.

Happy Monday,
Cooper

I just love to make videos. This one's about CO.

I'M ADDICTED.  To video-making.  However, I thought freshman orientation was pretty important, so therefore, I AM JUSTIFIED.

ENJOY.

Mountains and trees and elk, OH, MY!

It's not a library.  It just says library on it.  





Best friend and her mom.


  






Lunch in downtown Fort Collins at Cooper Smith's WHAT WHAT

So damn delicious.

A spontaneous trip to Estes Park. 


Oh, yeah.  I took that. 


ELK!



The End. 

An A+ Idea.

I'm going to channel Emily from Secrets of a Stylist once more.  In her shows, she tends to do a lot of arranging of picture frames, and therefore I'm going to do the same in my dorm room.  Here's what I have so far:

I bought two prints from Etsy for the frames in the middle, and I'm still deciding what to put in the others.  

ART! 

Colorado pics to come soon :)

Visit to College.

Well, orientation's over.  I have pics, I promise, but they take forever to upload and I have a million and one things on my plate tomorrow.  So yeah.

I don't know what it is, but ever since I got back from CSU I've been so nervous about August.  Well, actually, that's a lie. I know exactly what it is.  I'm nervous about leaving home.  I know that CSU is a place that I love and I know I'll be happy there, but I'm just nervous about leaving home.  Why does it have to be so dang far away? (oh yeah, because I picked it all the way over in Fort Collins)  I'm going to be so homesick.

I just want to fast-forward and plop down in November, when I've gotten used to classes and made some friends and gotten involved and all that.  I hate easing into things.  I hate the beginning of school years.

Well, I've got another two months to worry about this.  Please tell me my fears are rational?

Happy Father's Day...

So typical.

I walk into Target, ready to buy some simple flats and get outta that mother and then...something happened.

My dad decides to try on some jeans...cut to me wandering the ladies section, browsing and killing time, and finding some sweet pants.  Well, dad's in the dressing room and I've got time to spare, guess I can try these on!

I ended up trying on four different pairs of pants and revisiting the shoe section about six times.  I also bought a cashmere-ish sweater.  Why?  I don't know.

Then I went to Payless to fufill my original mission...almost bought snow boots.  It's 106 degrees in Texas.

FINALLY bought Toms knockoffs at Famous Footwear.

That was my night, and it all started with a pair of flats.  I have a problem.

I finally finished it, and I must say, I'm quite proud of it.

The song is Right Before My Eyes by Cage the Elephant.

Enjoy!

Here's the pictures from our recent Los Cabos trip.  Gotta love my best friend for taking me all around the world with her fabulous fam :)
Check out the pirate ship!

The arch, that is only accessible every 4-5 years!


Getting crazy in the gift shop...

We definitely crashed a wedding.


The wedding arch.

The end! I had an AMAZING time :)

Graduation- FINALLY!

Monday, June 13, 2011 § 0

I say finally in reference to the fact that I finally graduated and to the fact that I'm finally uploading pictures.   I've been in Mexico with my best friend for the past week, so I haven't had time to update!! I'm glad to be back, as much as I loved the free drinks (drinking age in Mexico is 18, so I felt like a classy lady with my Pina Colada non-virgin, haha) and the beautiful beach.

Anyway, I now present to you the class of 2011 (or, um, just me):







Post-grad Benihana dinner was FAB.   

WOO HOO, I'M A GRAD!!  Now I can get my butt to Colorado to get my degree! I'm going to orientation there soon, and I can't wait to take a bajillion and one pictures of my future home :)

Until manana, 
Cooper
