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!
