Missy Foo is going under the knife this week to remove bladder stones that recently developed. The surgery is routine and my Pops, who is a vet, will be performing it, so she'll be in the best, most capable hands. But, I still can't help but be a bit nervous for my girl.
Missy Foo's latest development has caused a change in diet for both Missy & Betty. As you can see from the photo, Betty is not happy about it. We've taken away the bowl of dry food and switched them both over to wet food only, which means no more free feeding. Our little 8 lb angel, who never seemed interested in food before, has become a food-obsessed ferocious beast. Well, not really all that ferocious, but she's definitely pissed. She points the blame at Missy Foo and makes it known by hissing at Missy Foo several times a day. Where did my shy little angel go?
As for Pipo & I, we worry about whether they are getting enough food, if Missy Foo is comfortable, and when Betty will be happy again.
It's funny how the smallest change can throw us all off course.
I toured the quaint and charming neighborhood of Floral Park, Santa Ana with my mama this weekend & it was so much fun.
Started in the 1920's and developed further in the 30s and 40s, this neighborhood is home to a wide range of architectural styles. From Tudor, Colonial, and Ranch masterpieces each home had its own character and allure. It was great to see all of the architecture, and getting to see inside the homes was particularly fun. So much inspiration to take home with us to our non-tudor homes and neighborhoods where every house looks the same. But, the grass is always greener. Floral Park Home & Garden Tour
Anthropologie is one of those stores that never disappoints for me. They always offer new, exciting, and treasurable pieces. From clothing, to jewelry, to shoes, to goodies for the home, I rarely walk out empty handed. The quality of the offerings is on par along with the attention to detail and thoughtfulness, which is why this episode of Steals & Deals is dedicated to our beloved Anthro.
Not all items that line the rustic wood-paneled walls are worth the dough, but some can be justified because of that something special that the pieces contain. And, there's always the sale rack, which is my favorite corner of the store. Fall in love with something one day, go back a week later and you will find it on the goodie rack for half price.
My favorite way to snaz-up my wardrobe is to find new accessories to give my basics a fresh feel. Many fabulous jewels can be found residing on the open racks at Anthro & at a great value. $48 per item is my self-imposed limit and there are so many choices at this price point and under. I never even glance in the direction of the jewelry in the glass cases because there aren't any real diamonds in there, even though the prices may imply that there are.
Anthro is a great source for finding those key pieces for spring (preferably on the sale rack) without breaking the bank.
Over the past month, I've received some really wonderful books, which I've added to my ever-growing stack of must-reads on & under my nightstand. The only problem lies in where to begin... Any recommendations?
It's official, we booked our trip to Paris for New Year's!
I've been planning this trip in my head for many years & can't believe it looks as if it is actually going to happen. We found a fantastic deal through Swiss Air that we couldn't pass up & decided there are few things more romantic than spending New Year's in Paris.
In honor of my upcoming b-day and because a girl only turns 30 once, I felt it was necessary (and entirely appropriate) to buy myself a party dress (or two).
I tend to obsess (just a little) over finding the PERFECT thing and have wasted little time thinking about much else over the last few weeks. As a result, I have the following options to choose from...
