A Trip to Town Shoes

A trip to Town Shoes is always a lethal expedition for any woman...particularly when that woman is a shop/shoe-aholic! My girlfriends and I make Friday's "girl days" or "girl nights out" and this particularly Friday we have planned to do both! We went shopping during the afternoon and are heading out to a bistro tonight for dinner and drinks to catch up after a very long week of classes.

As you can probably tell from the zebra print design, these pumps immediately caught my eye: a) because they're flashy b) because they are fluorescent pink underneath and c) because they were part of the Barbie 50th Anniversary collection.

What can I say...I HAD to have them, and I can't wait to wear them out tonight!

New Additions to the Family

The boys doing what they do best...napping


Well, it's official...I am the proud mama of two beautiful cats, Angelo and Douggie.

A friend of mine has parents who own a beautiful farm that just happens to be infiltrated with cats...the most beautiful, well behaved cats you could ever imagine. I picked these two gorgeous boys out and we've been getting acquainted over the past couple of days. So far, I know that Douggie is the leader...he loves taking naps on my bed (and the kitchen counter). He's also fascinated by the computer and laptop. He loves leaping up on ledges and knocking things over. He follows me around like Ben used to. He's also partial to sleeping behind the microwave. His favourite toys are his felt fishy.

Angelo is a tad more complicated...he likes to hide behind the fridge most afternoons, then come alive in the early morning hours. He is much more shy then Douggie. His favourite corner is in my hall closet where I have a basket and fleece blanket set up. He loves plunking himself on my duvet and getting his belly rubbed. Did I also mention I've been feeding them dinner while on my duvet? It gives a whole new meaning to 'breakfast in bed'. I'm pretty sure both of them have me pegged as a 'sucker' already, and they know they have me wrapped around their little paws.

I am so excited to have these little guys join our family, and I can't wait to play the role of 'proud mama' and give you reports on how they're doing!
