Looking for My Groove

Can a mid-life crisis strike at any age?

From personal experience, I’m going to have to say yes because I’ve felt like I’ve been in the middle of one for months now…sigh.

Growing up is hard isn’t it?!

Since before I started this blog, I felt like I had finally found my path…but lately I’ve felt like I’m way off course and struggling to find my way back.

Recently it’s gotten even tougher and I haven’t felt like writing much and I wanted to share the reason why I’ve been so absent lately.

I have lots of blog ideas though, so I plan to write when I can…but for now I have to focus on getting my groove back.

Petition for Cats in the Workplace

The following video comes courtesy of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Ellen proclaimed this cat as the “Cat of the Year” and I think she may be right – I mean it’s not every day you see a cat refusing the advances of a tasty looking parakeet!

Urban Outfitters Sells TOMS Shoes!

Urban Outfitters is just one of those stores I always go into whenever I come across one because they always have fun stuff to look at.

So when I came across their Chinatown location recently, it was a no brainer to head inside…and I’m so glad I did because I discovered a huge display of TOMS shoes within!!

As you know, I love everything about TOMS (from their philanthropy goals to their über cute and comfy shoes) and I was so excited to find them in an unexpected place!

And even better than that, was the fact that I found a pair that features my favorite color – teal!! So if you are lucky enough to have an Urban Outfitters store nearby, head over there and get a pair for yourself!

You can thank me later.

Florence + the Machine: My Current Music Obsession

Have you ever taken the long way home just to finish listening to a song?

I did recently when “Shake It Out” by Florence + the Machine came on the radio because I am OBSESSED with it!

The song is so unbelievably powerful and the words so incredible that it literally moves me every time I hear it.

What do you think??

Petition for Cats in the Workplace

So you know my first blog post of 2012 had to include my favorite thing…cat pictures!!

And while I haven’t quite solidified my list of New Year’s resolutions, it appears (from the pictures below) that Wylie and Sami have resolved to “play nicer” this year.

The first time I caught Sami crawling into Wylie’s bed, I thought it wouldn’t last 5 seconds…but surprisingly it did! And then it happened a few more times over the next couple weeks!

They are so adorable and I loved getting to spend so much time with them over the holidays.

I hope your holidays were equally wonderful and your new year is off to a fabulous (and fuzzy) start!!

Sami even looks a tad surprised at being in Wylie’s bed!

So sweet, side by side!

Silly Sami literally laid on Wylie to squeeze in the second time!

My two peas in a pod!

Happy Holidays!!!

Even though Sami and Wylie are content playing with paper balls and empty boxes, I couldn’t resist getting them a Christmas present.

And once I bought it, I couldn’t resist giving it to them early!

It is an adorable knit octopus-on-a-rope from Target and not only do I love the look of it, but the cats love playing with it!

And I think we’ll be playing with it quite a lot during the holiday break since I’ll be at home with them for almost two weeks – yay!!

So until I sign back in next year, I wish you and yours the happiest of holidays and a wonderful New Year!!

Three Hundred is a BIG Number!

Holy cow, this is my 300th blog post!

I was definitely surprised when I found out because I haven’t been doing that much writing these days.

And while I don’t feel guilty about that, because I’ve wanted to focus more time on myself, I do feel guilty about the fact that I haven’t been in better touch with all of my blogging friends. I miss checking in and reading about what you’re up to and I feel badly that somehow I’ve let you down by my lack of comments.

My hope is to do better in the New Year and to come up with a more balanced approach to this thing we call life (blogging included). I’m not sure if one really exists but I intend to do my best!

In the meantime, please know that I think of you all often and am grateful for your place in my life.
