Cows & Mountains

Wednesday, September 1, 2010


I'm kind of excited about how bizarre my life feels sometimes - like how I can go pet a cow on the top of a mountain any day I want! Look at how freaking cute he is! And how I watched a cow being brought down on a gondola lift thing...I just never thought that is something I'd see - which proves you just never know what the day is going to bring!
Ok, I wanted to pop in and say hi in the midst of my hostessing marks fam. Mostly because I'm really excited about the cow picture - THAT'S ME PETTING A COW! I've seriously pet cows before, but this is like bona-fide Swiss cow with a cow bell and er'thing. Anyway, I'm going to stop going on about the cow - just don't judge me, I'm really a normal person.

Kelly Leigh said...

yeah that bell makes him (her?) a million times cuter!

Crazy Little World Of Mine said...

Yay for cows!!!!! :) And the bell's awesome! Believe it or not I think it's been years since I saw a cow. A swiss one that is. ;)

Ms. Emily Ann said...

Oh my goodness! You lucky girl! How gorgeous it is there... and I have never ever pet a cow, or even thought about doing so...but these pics are too cute!! Now I want to pet a cow, on top of a mountain!

Katie said...

Very cute pics :)

Christina said...

I definitely love cows...two of my favorite advertisements ever star cows...The California cheese commercials and Chick-Fil-a. Trust me, it's perfectly normal. :)

Panda said...

Thats so cool! what a beautiful view that cow has too! they say cows are happy in CA (you know the comercials)but i think they are happier in Switzerland!!

Have a fantastic time Hostessing!!

Galit said...

Haha, you made me laugh as I see my life as peculiar at the same way - still can't believe how it is possible that on my weekends I come to 'meet' kangaroos and on my everyday walks at the park I sometimes spots a little koala.
Life is wonderful!!!

Galit said...

Love your new banner by the way!! Super lovely!

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

That's the coolest thing EVER! I'd be way excited too :)

lancelonie said...

Yup, freaking cute! ...and I think cutie cow is looking at me. :)

Indie.Tea said...

How adorable that cow is . And it looks like you are having lots of fun.

Brina said...

I'd probably be WAY too scared to pet the cow. Something about the fear of it possibly biting me would go through my head and I'd freak out.

(I don't claim to be a normal person at all, though.)

Signe said...

Nice pictures and lovely scenery! Switzerland really does like a lot like the northern and western parts on Norway, with the snow on the mountain tops even in summer and also cows walking around freely with bells :)

la bovaryste said...

taryn said...

such a cute shot... how beautiful it looks there! i love cows.. they are super sweet.

Emily, Ruby Slipper Traveller said...

How very swiss!

La Boheme said...

Cows need to get better rep as "pets" and you are giving them a good shout out. Seriously, I used to pet them too and they can be really sweet! Go Krystal! xoxo

Elise said...

Haha - this is so adorable!! Lucky you! And is it just me or is that an insanely pretty cow? :)

à la Modest said...

You just created a stereotype for Swiss people--- cows and green grass! :P That place looks so surreal. The closest I've ever got to that place was probably a Photoshop version.

PS your comment from last time-- Yes, I was just avoiding the question!!

Bella *Bellgetsreal said...

haha I use to ride my pet cow, Poncho, but he never looked as cute.

You look like your having a wonderful time. I love it when I need to be the hostess, you get to do so many things that maybe you have put off.

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

That cow is awesome!

brittany said...

that is fabulous! cows on a mountaintop. love it.

Pop Champagne said...

awwww you petting a cow! the view in the pic is fantastic!

Marcie said...

Seriously, I love this! You have an amazing life and great views in your backyard!! Great photos! My husband was raised on a dairy and I can pet a cow anytime too, but I don't have those amazing views.

xo M

Claudz said...

cute cow!!
Have fun with the family

Sympathy for the Devil said...

aaawwww can i pet him toooo?????

Kristin said...

You crack me up. The dude would be jealous. He loooooooves cows!

Becca said...

I can't believe how awesome it is that you're on the mountain with a cow. That's incredible!

Catita said...

Oh Krystal, that is truly a cool picture and you seem to be having so much fun! Once more, you are so lucky to be living in Switzerland, it's gorgeous! And the cow is huge! Well they are too here in the Netherlands and I have my theory that it's the reason why Dutch ppl are the tallest in the world. They spend their days eating dairy products and their cows are huge! I think I should have emmigrated here earlier, I might be a bit taller now... hehehe!

Paislea Elyse said...

look at you krystal! just petting cows!! hahahha. it's such a cute picture, and what a fun, weird once in a lifetime experience. i adore it.

i have pet a cow before though, my dad is a farmer! so it would be expected. hahah...

The cows in Texas don't look anything like your sweet cow! Lol. The atmosphere is beautiful, and I think you are totally normal for going on and on about the cow.

LyddieGal said...

You need to get a photo of one on the gondola!

Let me add a fresh, Swiss cow to my list of things I need from Switzerland. x

Wow! I've never been that close to a cow in my whole life!

Heather {A Measure Of...} said...

Oh, how I do love a good cowbell! There are so many strange and beautiful happenings like this throughout the Andes, too. But the experience would be totally different of course!

Also, I'm just playing catch up on blogs finally, and wanted to say in response to one of your comments: Happy Anniversary! (although nearly a month late)...
xox

Bron @ Baby Space said...

Looove the pic of you petting the cow but more than that, love how excited you are about it! Fun to be excited, boring to be cynical. Moooo.

Liz said...

Haha that makes you an awesome person! Lucky :)

Jessica said...

Aren't you just the cutest girl?! The cow looks so sweet. :-)
