My car hit a huge milestone this morning on the way to work:

It may not be the fanciest car. It doesn't have XM radio or built in navigation or bun-warmers but it is the only car I've ever had. It is the car that I learned how to drive. I plan to drive it until the wheels fall off. Happy 100,000 "Bliz".

My 3 Tiny Little Reindeer

For many years now, I have had a tradition of humiliating my cats by dressing them up in festive headgear.  The tradition started in 2008, when I found a pair of pet antlers and thought my then 17-year old cat, Katy, would look adorable in them. Since she was the most easy-going cat in history, she played along:

The following year, Willie and Kimmie got the antler treatment.  Kimmie was still way too tiny for the antlers:

In 2010, we took a break from the antlers and instead dressed up like the big man himself- Santa Paws:

Willie as Santa Paws.
This year, I had a challenge with the antler pictures. Goog was out of town, so I had to set up my camera on a timer, place the antlers on the cats, and position ourselves in the chair all within a 10 second time frame.  It worked with Kimmie, but when the pipsqueaks both wiggled out of their antlers, I had to go with my trusty iPhone.

Even though you couldn't see my whole outfit in any of these, I was completely antlered out head to toe.  Antlers, reindeer shirt, and big-nosed reindeer pants:

Testing the Blogger+ App


Long time, no see! Guess what I've had running around my house the last 2 months- new kittens! They are about 5 months old and just had their bits removed. Mitzi is in the first picture; Pippa is in the second picture.

This random post is to make sure this Blogger+ App doesn't crash on me the way the BlogPress one did!

My sweet baby boy, Willie, past away a week ago. He was just 2 years old. I'm heartbroken. Rest in peace, little buddy.

I Was a (Future Corporate Accounting) Senior Hottie!

 I had a strange request this past week. My Sis needed me to scan a couple of her senior photos, and it was URGENT. I soon found out it was part of a link-up with  a Belle, a Bean, and a Chicago Dog where everyone was digging out old high school photos. So, I "dug up" my class of 2001 out of the depths of my external hard drive.

First up, the classic senior portrait, including gold leaf name and date in the corner.  The most tragic thing about this picture is that I still look exactly the same 10 years later.  Not the worse thing in the world, except when people think I'm a certain co-worker's daughter.

Starting my corporate accounting look early in life.
The most memorial thing about my senior year was my future husband and I started dating about 6 weeks before graduation.  We started dating just in time to go to senior prom:

Fun fact: I wore these same shoes on my wedding day.
We also got to spend our senior spring break together in exotic Cincinnati, OH (before I moved here for college):
Old married couple?
Finally, graduation! We were forced to chose a career path in 8th grade, so that big pink ribbon I'm wearing meant I was going to be in the medical field and the Goog's yellow ribbon meant he planning on being in the liberal arts (as a radio broadcaster).  Neither of those career choices lasted much longer after this picture was taken (I'm now an accountant, and he is a physics teacher!)

I promise I own more clothing than light blue shirts & dresses!!

Go join in on the fun!
