On To The Next One... Holiday Season!

Hello All! Hope everyone had a beautiful Thanksgiving! I sure did! We went up to New York to spend the weekend with Jake's sister Jen and her husband, Tom, along with their precious baby girl. Mia is six months old and is without a doubt the cutest little girl in the world! It was so nice to spend a little time with her and her awesome parents. My new and beautiful family is definitely what I am most thankful for this year. Move to Pittsburgh guys!

Meet Mia!

Dinner was incredible. Jen and her bff, Kimmy, outdid themselves this year. Everything was delicious!

Stuffing has always been my favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner.

Mia's Thanksgiving feast! Turkey, gravy and cranberry baby cereal!

We didn't have the traditional pumpkin pie for dessert ...
but chocolate covered strawberries and cannolis did just fine!

On our way back home we picked up a Christmas tree! Decorating for Christmas has always been a favorite of mine, and I am always very eager to get it started.

Our perfectly crooked tree!

Maybe I could have waited another week or so but I just couldn't help myself!
Happy Holidays!


Childhood Crushes

Many of our first loves were not people we went to school with or sat next to on the school bus, but celebrities we never met! You know the ones. The teen heart throbs plastered all over Bop and Tiger Beat magazines. The boys you had daydreams about running into on the street, or them picking you out of a crowd making all of the other teeny boppers jealous. Real life goals here people. We put our boy crazy heads together and came up with our favorite untouchables from our days of training bras and braces.

Jonathan Taylor Thomas. Sweet mother of feathered hair. We would have all gladly accepted those flowers. I don't know about the other girls, but I was even excited about him being the voice of Young Simba in The Lion King. Even though he was my childhood doppelganger, I still loved him. Does that make me an extreme egomaniac?

Devon Sawa. Now and Then, Wild America (which also starred JTT, be still our delicate, adolescent hearts), Casper, even SLC Punk! You are probably very sweet and not a bit Sawa. Couldn't stop that one...

Andrew Keegan. He has the dreamiest, wavy hair in the entire world. He has popped up on shows like Boy Meets World, Full House, and Step by Step. He is probably most known for 10 Things I Hate About You, and Party of Five. Sigh, yep, Ah-Ooo-Gah!

Elijah Wood. This one is for Melisa. She really fancied ol' Frodo Baggins from way back!

New Kids on The Block. There isn't much I can say here. Danielle and Melisa are the experts on this one. They even met Donnie this year after the concert. Not a big's because they have the right stuff.

 Rider Strong and Will Friedle. Boy Meets World brought us not one, but two boys to crush over. Shawn Hunter may have been the first bad boy I swooned over, and the streak is still strong (why are they so easy today?). And Eric, when a crime breaks out we will definitely all shout, and call the good looking guy.

Bob Dylan. At a young age Sarah fell for Bob Dylan. If you know her at all, you know she still digs The Dyl! I can't say that I blame her, no one can.

Luke Perry and Jason Priestley. 90210 was a very attractive zip code. If you want to chat about BH90210 and gab about your favorite episodes, Danielle and Melisa are your girls. They had merchandise..dolls, pins, shirts, posters. Melisa just informed me that Dylan was for the girls who liked bad boys and Brandon was for the girls who liked good boys.

Leonardo DiCaprio. He still remains high on my list. Growing Pains was the first time I set eyes on this handsome devil and there is no looking back. What a stud!?! Everything he touches is great...all of it. Don't argue. I am actually having a hard time forming sentences with this one. There is something nothing wrong with that last thought.

Who were some of your childhood crushes? You know you still love them ;)

Cash Cat Takes Over.

Hi people. My mum Melisa has been very busy working on her handmade goodies, so she asked me to write a little blog in the meantime. Allow me to introduce myself, my name is "Cash" (as in Johnny Cash... they thought it was clever because I am all black). I am very handsome.

This is me after a haircut.

I have 2 eyes, but I often keep one closed to keep people guessing.

I will be social if it means I might get a bite of something. I will eat anything. My favorites are PB&J sandwiches, cereal, pizza, and french fries.

I have been told that I have a face only a mother could love.

Anyway, I have picked out a few of my favorite cat items found on Etsy to share with you...

These things keep me busy for awhile. Buy it for me here.

These toys look pretty fun. Buy them for me here.

Now this is a bed! Luckily too small for my dumb dog brother.

Ok, now here are some things for cat ladies like my mum...

Some ornaments I would not destroy. Maybe.
She has been wanting this shirt for weeks. 
These postcards would be great to get in the mail.
This is classy.
Ok friends, I have some cat napping to do. It was nice meeting you all.
Enjoy these fine cat-inspired handmade things.
