BY ALEX

Its getting chilly outside here in Western Montana, so it seemed only appropriate that we honor the change in weather with a post celebrating cuddly fall clothes. Cue the scarves, socks, and sweaters.

What I’m {Catching Up On} Right Now

BY ALEX

I’m not a scrapbooker, a photo album organizer, or even very good about printing out my digital pictures, but I am an obsessive Picassa user and photo backer-upper. After loosing a good deal of my pictures a couple years ago to a fried computer hard drive, I now attempt to back up after every exciting adventure that involves any amount of photography. This has been a busy summer for me and I have traveled to New Jersey, Glacier National Park, San Francisco, Seattle, and Las Vegas since last backing up. I think I would totally lose it if my computer crashed at this point and everything was suddenly gone.¬†Tonight I will get my act together and transfer everything over to the big, clunky external hard drive where all of my photos go to rest. In the mean time, click through to see some choice shots from my most recent rambling.

Pinterest Wednesdays: Brights and Neons

BY ALEX

I am admittedly a basics girl. Most of the colors in my wardrobe range from gray to black with a bit of white thrown in. Lately though, with fall fast approaching and the promise of many cloudy days and early nights ahead, I am thinking that the neon trend might be on to something. Thought I am not a complete bright colors virgin (I have what my mother has deemed a “hunter’s orange” Kate Spade bag that I haul everywhere) I still approach it sparingly. Below are a few of my pinterest favorites that take bright colors and crazy combinations to the next level.

Hello there.

We’re Alex and Ashley, the bloggers upstairs. Though our friendship has already lasted through many pairs of running shoes, we only recently became roommates and bloggers when we moved into our tiny upstairs apartment in Missoula, Montana. Join us as we muddle through our 20’s living in this 100+ year-old house.

Hey everyone. It’s Alex. I spend my weekdays as a nonprofit fundraiser and my nights and weekends hopping from activity to activity. Whether it is mountain biking, snowboarding, hiking, or rafting, you will find me outside, often accompanied by the boyfriend, taking advantage of a flexible work schedule and all Montana has to offer. While I will be serving up a monthly foodie column, it’s called the “Uncomfortable Cook” for a reason (the kitchen is not my normal stomping ground), all of this boils down to me just living life and trying to make it all work here in Missoula.

Ashley here. I also work for a nonprofit, but as a magazine editor and website guru, while also growing my freelance design business. I like to keep busy and dabble in everything from running to crafting to trying to keep up with the tech and design world. I also hang out with a great guy named Nate and my fat cat, Oscar, that may make an occasional appearance on the blog (the furry guy always seems to get in the middle of my craft projects).

What do we promise to offer you? The traditional lifestyle blog with a small-town Montana twist.

  • A monthly fashion or decor related DIY post by Ashley
  • An experimental cooking post brought to you each month by Alex
  • “What I’m ___ Right Now” posts highlighting our thoughts/ feelings/ and current obsessions
