It is actually snowy and rainy today in the Duke City but I couldn't resist this sexy ass bike made out of hardwood that came across my path on the for the love of bikes blog today. This is a bike that I would consider buying for Pato if he was a bike rider. But yeah, it's a sexy bike and the one who owns it, is the one who I'm sure gets all the play!
Maps, I love them!
I seriously can't wait till I can afford to buy a large map and hang it up on our dining room wall. We do have a shower curtain map in our bathroom (which needs to be replaced) and it has come in handy on many shower day dreams of traveling while getting ready for work. Lately I've been staring off into the Europe part of the map as I am traveling to London, Paris and Scotland this year with some of my good friends from college Danielle and Allison. However, I'm always looking for new places to travel and maps really keep me focused on my travel goals.
The countries on our list so far are:
Yes, it's quite a list and Brazil is actually the first on coming up on that list because Pato's sister is moving with her husband to Sao Paulo. Pato has already traveled to 27 countries in his life and 5 of them are on the list above. I guess it's safe to say that I have a seriously kick ass travel partner.
Today on design sponge they featured these cute maps from These Are Things and JHill Design
Even though they are a bit pricey, I am in love with the world map from These Are Things and the Mexico and Argentina prints from JHill.
JHill also has a New Mexico print that was in my opinion sort of lame. It was focused on Roswell which as us bleed Zia New Mexican's know is only a small and sometimes annoying part of what our bad ass state has to offer. All in all they had a cute approach in mind and I am a fan of their work!
You know you had a good weekend when you come to work on Monday in a chipper and happy mood that annoys the shit out of everyone!
This weekend I had an amazing time with my amore Pato. We scored some free passes to Ojo Caliente Hot Springs and got to soak away our stress in the most amazing NM setting. We also decided to took a detour to Chimayo and ate at Rancho de Chimayo Restaurante a place with great food and great chile.
We wrapped up the weekend by going to see Avatar in 3D. Holy amaze balls that movie rocked and we are glad we paid the extra money to see it in 3D.
I hope everyone had a great weekend and you are currently annoying the shit out of your coworkers on this lovely first Monday in February.
