Our Song!!

At my friend Jenn's wedding, my other friend asked me if me and Matt had a song. We had been dating for over 2 years at the time, but as much as I wanted to say that we had this ultimately romantic song that summed up our feelings for each other in a perfect way...ultimately I had to say that we did not. "Oh well" I thought, "I'm not in a high school relationship anymore, so no big deal." And...I didn't think about it again...until...

.... a couple of weeks ago Matt informed me that we now had a song. I had never heard the song before, so we pulled the video up on youtube and watched it together.

If you've already pushed know what the video is about. But, I was completely surprised when I saw it that this is what Matt had thought was "our song" and represented our relationship. But...since he had only listened to the song on the radio, he also was totally surprised by the video also..

I think Matt picked a good song for "our song". The lyrics are great and the video is hilarious... and I think it makes me love the "our song" even more.

An Indulgent Post..

I'm calling this an indulgent post because I want to blog about some of my favorite kitty pictures.... I'm calling it.....
"The Top Ten Most Kitty-licious Moments Caught in Pictures"
(in no particular order)
#1- The human and the CatThis is one of my favorites because Stormy hates to be held, and this is a rare picture of her with a human..most!!
#2- Kitty vs the Laptop
The newest kitty Ella loves to jump up and chase the cursor on my laptop...she's so curious about everything...I love it!!...even if she does step all over the keyboard and cause my laptop to freak out!

#3-Christmas kitty
Chas is such a good sport to let us drape tinsel all around him for a photo opportunity.

#4-Chas exploring the pantry
In our new house we have a nice big pantry...which Chas loves to hang out in and climb all over the shelves. Luckily he hasn't broken into any of our food while exploring.

#5-Stormy and her kitty tent
My mom bought the kitty tent for my cats at IKEA and Stormy especially grew very fond of it. This is one of my all time favorite pictures of Stormy...she's so cute!!

#6- Chas in the hamper
We got Chas when he was just a little guy, full of curiousity and spunk. He obviously was jealous of the time I spent with the laundry, so he thought that he'd better get in there so he could get attention too!!

#7-The one and only
Until 6 months ago, we just had the two cats Stormy and Chas....this is the only picture I have of the two of them together...precious!!
#8- Chas with eyebrows
Boredom is a dangerous illustrated by this picture of Chas..with eyebrows drawn on by Matt. Hilarious!!!
#9- Toilet training
I think this is a sign that Chas is ready to toilet train!!
#10-pure excitement
This picture was taken at the adoption fair where we got Ella...the excitment on Matt's face tells it all!!

I've never been a huge fan of Halloween. Of course I've never had anything against the holiday, afterall, I've got no complaints with a holiday that gives free candy to children...or at least I didn't have an complaints when I was the kid getting the free candy.
Since it was our first Halloween in our house, we decided to dress up and have a mini Halloween party of our own. I dressed up as a rocker chic and Matt dressed up as...umm..I'm not sure...but it was pretty scary! Here we are in our outfits...
...and here is a close up of Matt's face in all his scary glory! Unfortuately he didn't keep in his outfit very long since the wig made him want to itch his face...which doesn't work too well when covered in face paint!
Our friends Daniel and Dominique came over...along with Daniel's brother Steve.
Here we are all just goofing off! Steve-the crazy gun nut (And don't worry---it's not loaded), Daniel-the escaped prisoner, Dominique-the old-time bar maid, Matt-the guy in the Avatar wig, and Kristin-the rocker chic!!
We had a great first Halloween in our new house, and we had a lot of cute trick or treaters show up for free candy...despite the rain!
