Kitty Face

He is such a sweet little guy…when he is sleeping that is.

Meet Toulouse, officially.  I call this his Kitty Face because he actually is a good kitty here.  He isn’t the terrorizing alter ego that destroys our house and keeps the dog living in fear.










In a few short hours, when I am cuddled away and sleeping soundly, he will attack my head like it is his job.

So for now, I like to enjoy these quiet, cute moments where he actually pretends he loves me and is a good boy.

Cheer Up Best Friends

Lately I’ve noticed some friends that have been down and out.  Between boys, school, and work, it’s definitely time for a girls night out.  As a prelude of a great night, here are some favs that I think might cheer these friends up and help them get through some difficult times.

Beauty around us…

Sometimes it’s hard to remember the good in our lives when we are caught up in the not-so-good.  This quote from Anne Frank reminds me that there is still so much around me that I should be grateful and happy for.

Hottie Alert!












This put a smile on my face.

A needed laugh


Every girl needs to hear this at times.








This would help after(I really mean during) a hard days work.

Reasons to dress up every day(not that I need one)

High Expectations

Not that it’s terrible to have high expectations of yourself and others around you, but I find myself expecting too much, worrying I won’t achieve the expectations, then beating myself up if I don’t.  I’ve learned to take a step back sometimes and just let myself breath for a minute or two…or 10.







I Wish..








What makes you happy?

Case of the Mondays.

I am way behind the times when it comes to blogs.  It’s 2011 going on 2012 soon, and I am just getting one? Where have I been?!

My amateur blogging skills will document my day to day discoveries of laughs, fashion, news stories, and local happenings around South-Eastern Wisconsin.  Hope you like it mom 😉

To start my blog off, I like to cure my case of the Mondays with some internet funnies.  I compiled a small prescription to help all you sick ones out there that have come down with what seems to be the worst day of the week sometimes.

1 Dose of a laugh: Ellen Scare Montage

1 Dose of an IKEA moment: A-mazing desk idea.

1 Dose of a cute kitty:

Well that’s all I have for today. Hope this prescription cured your case of the Mondays!
