Couple Things

1. Don't you love our new heading!? The lovely Sam Ortega designed it for us and I just love it! It is so playful! You can read her delightfully snarky blog here.

2. My soon to be hubby (yay) is a horrible liar. We all know he is way more obsessed with Zeus than I am. (ok maybe we are the same...).

3. Tomorrow we are going to go to the famous Katz's Deli for deli sandwiches. Will report back for the couple foodies who are reading this.

Josie is craaaaaaazzyy. I probably mention Zeus' name once a week or so, she just goes on and on, it's driving me nuts! I mean, I guess he's alright, but jeez woman.


I think I could stare at Zeus for hours. I mean I know I could stare at him for hours. People without dogs just don't realize how amazing they really are. Ok, sometimes cats are cute, but they just don't do it for me.

There is nothing like little Zeus kisses (on my forehead) in the morning. He does this to let me know he is awake (as if I don't already know). He is just the perfect companion (except for Elliott of course).

Things I love about him:

-the way he snores when he is awake.
-how he spreads his toys across the apartment.
-how he waits patiently in the kitchen for his cookie after every walk.
-the way he sticks his paws under the bathroom door.
-how he does "chicken butt" when he is really tired.
-the way he gets so excited every time I come home.
-the way he follows me everywhere.
-how much he loves me.

This list could go on forever but I know most of you are sick of hearing about Zeus (except Elliott).

Zeus, mommy loves you!!
(yes I am crazy)

Valentine's Day!

What a great day! I came back from CT in the morning to find Zeus in a really cuddly mood and tulips (my favorite) on the counter! Elliott and I spent a lot time brainstorming what we wanted to make for dinner. At first the idea of making something new out of a cookbook was so exciting but then I hinted that I really wanted to make pizza.

So of course we settled on an old reliable (Pops' famous pizza). We decided that if we were going to eat a lot of pizza we should at least work out before so we wouldn't feel like fat slobs afterwords. We (yes we...I am so proud of myself!) took Zeus on a 2 mile run then came back and demolished 2 pizzas...1 for each mile right??

We finished our perfect day by watching HGTV in sweats.

Some people might say I like shopping...

Shopping is not just a hobby of mine (ok maybe it is pretty much my only hobby) but a form of therapy. In a way it calms me even though my heart races when I see something I love. I love the comfort of going into familiar stores and the thrill of stumbling upon a new store. Revisiting a store gives me a similar feeling as reconnecting with an old friend. You know what they are all about and you know what sorts of things they carry. When I have nothing to do or am early for an appointment I always think about shopping. I'm like "I must shop!". It's not even that I must buy everything but I always have this urge to see what is out there. You know the people who shout "who are you wearing!" on the red carpet? I would love it if those people were stationed at various corners of the city just so you could know what everyone was wearing. I must keep expanding my fashion knowledge! I live to see what people are wearing!
