Fun pics

So Meowface has always enjoyed laying on the back of the couch. Chris, however, likes to pick him up and put him back on the couch upside down. Luckily, Oreo really enjoys that too.
Stretching because he's so comfortable.

I turned the tv on in the guest room for a second and immediately all the cats jumped up on the bed to watch.

I took this picture in the middle of the night last night. No flash, sun has been set for hours. And yet, you can see everything pretty clearly. That happens sometimes around here. We have our non-night nights where it looks like this weird stage in between night and day. The sky is mostly dark, but you can see everything as clearly as if it were 4 o'clock in the afternoon. It's not from the street lights, or anyone's house lights. If you go all the way out in the backyard, it's just as light. It's like the air is glowing. We haven't figured out why this happens some nights and why it's black as pitch other nights.

Valentine's Day

Chris took me out to dinner for Valentine's Day. We went to Mohegan Manor in Baldwinsville. The food was delicious! Here I am showing off my updo.
Me and Chris.

Chris and his seafood special.

My ridiculously huge Cowboy Steak special. It might not look huge here, but keep in mind that the plate was the size of a hubcap. lol 26 ounces. Ridiculous. Happily, I had plenty to share with Chris, and I even made dinner out of the leftovers tonight. haha It made a delicious Cowboy Steak Burrito. Yum!

Valentine's Day

So we celebrated a day early ...

Happy to finally have a decent-paying job, I wanted to splurge a bit on Chris since he's been so good to me while I've been unemployed. So I got him a new GPS for his car, since his other one is ... well, awful. lol Chris picked up this delicious treat for us.

Chris also got me flowers. But he didn't just want to get me boring red roses. He told the woman that at flower place, and five guys buying red roses gave him dirty looks. lol So he picked the white roses and these pretty pink ones (lilies?). They're completely gorgeous together, and so sweet because he picked them out especially for me. :-)

I got a haircut today too. It's a lot shorter, but it looks so much fuller. Very happy about that. All in all, I'd say it's a great day before Valentine's day. :-)

Updates to the master bedroom

My new jewelry-holder my mom gave me for Christmas. So cute!
I put these shelves (from Target) up while Chris was off on his ski trip. Cute and simple right? Well, installing them was unbelievably frustrating. Unfortunately, Target seems to use some inferior hardware. The screws snapped off as I was screwing them in, all the plastic studs either fell behind the wall or ripped right out ... although I guess that could be the fault of either me or the walls. Oh well. I eventually pulled out my trusty hammer and hung them on the nails I have used to (successfully) hang all of the pictures in the house and in our old apartment. I love that hammer.

New bedding and pillows from Target. I snagged the flannel sheets for $9! Man, I love a good deal.

Best Friends

The kitties may be starting to come around and be friendly with Chris and I, but at the end of the day, nothing can come between these two brothers. They are and will always be, best friends.

Cell phone pictures of the kitties
