fly me to the moon....

J Fox here, hyperventilating over the perfect Christmas gift I just scored on Etsy.com for my rocket-building engineer friend.
This super cool graphic tee is made by the Psycho Reindeer T-Shirt Company and if you ask me, it combines almost TOO much awesomeness for one person: a saavy squirrel going to the moon! Doesn't get much cooler, and on an American Apparel unisex tee to boot!
You can view it modeled here!

Gift Idea #2

Inspired by our midnight viewing of New Moon yesterday/this morning...I thought this little gem might be a good gift for anyone with a Twilight obsessed girlfriend.

Whoa! That's a bling-alicious wolf! A bit on the pricey side, so start saving up your change now. :)

Have a great weekend!

And so the lion fell in love with the lamb....

Friends... the time has come, the countdown is over, we are sporting our Cullen crests and showing off our 'Team Edward/Team Jacob/Team Carlisle tees.

Our obsession with the Twilight saga continues with tonight's midnight showing of New Moon

Yes, we may be a bit old to be so hopelessly sprung on these complicated character's dark lives, but Edward "I don't have the strength to stay away from you anymore." :)

Hope you all get a chance to enjoy the movie this weekend, and do let us know what you thought of it! 

Until next time... "hold on tight, spider monkey!"

Gift Idea #1

The holidays are approaching! So, here's gift idea #1: Reusable Coffee Sleeve

Image from Cupkozy's Etsy Store

I know, I know...kind of an old idea, but this one caught my eye for a couple reasons.
1. much sleeker design than the knitted ones
2. it has a clip for you to clip it to keys, hook on your backpack, purse, etc.
3. the little elastic loop lets you roll it up so it's even more compact

What do you think? You can find it on Etsy for $7.

Happy Shopping!

Congratulations to the lovely Lauren and Catherine over at AsianCajuns for being included in 944 Magazine's 2009 list of people to know in Atlanta! It's so fun to know 'famous' people that are so sweet, beautiful, and down to earth. (We went to school together, so I can acutally say that I know them). Go pick up a copy of the magazine - available at Dancing Goats Coffee or UO in VA Highlands - and check out the awesome pic of Lauren and Catherine. I'm going to stop by and pick up a copy to see if I know anyone else on the list. I've been in the Decatur/Atlanta area so long that I can't help but run into people EVERYWHERE!

Anyone else have that happen?

Night night,

Meow-y Christmas!

Ho ho ho!

We had a dress rehearsal last night for this year's holiday photo card that will include our kitties and it was a good time had by all (except for George Michael aka Santa -- I'm not convinced that he is pleased with his outfit)! Perhaps he would rather be an elf? Or maybe he just isn't "feeling" Christmas and we will have to construct him a Grinch costume! 

Mia adored her little red striped sweater, and did not want to take it off, but she will just have to wait until the rest of us are all set with our coordinating outfits because we don't want her wearing that little number out before the official photo shoot :)

We will be sure to post the final product as soon as it is complete, as we are certain that you will get a laugh out of it! 

Until then,

Men in Underwear

My boyfriend sends me various articles about this, that, and the other throughout the day. I know how much work he gets done during the day by how many emails I get. :) The latest article was about men in underwear and is quite silly and probably true to a large extent. Does it ring true for anyone else out there?

Enjoy the beautiful fall weather out there! Hopefully you all have fun weekend plans.

Happy Fall!

Well if this does not make you love fall* than I don't know what will! My friend sent me this little gem of a pic knowing how much I love strange critters AND this wonderful season! (I have actually looked in to purchasing a chinchilla of my own as a pet, but have discovered that they do not like to be cuddled... which knocks them off my pet wish list!) 

 *and yes, I spelled 'fall' without capitalizing the "F" because seasons are not to be capitalized and if my grammar-police mother reads this she will be proud :)

Happy Fall! Go rake some leaves into a big pile and jump in them!

Hahaha! These are hilarious...you've probably already seen this site, but in case you haven't...

The photo comments sometimes really make the photo so make sure you read them. Now I'm going to go look through old family photos to see if I can find anything to add to the site... :)

Stay Dry Atlantans!

You can tell that fall is here...well, it's as "here" as it ever gets in Georgia. It won't really feel like fall until January, but the trees in my neighborhood sure are pretty.

Hope you all had a great weekend!

Free Coffee

I got free coffee today!! Yay! Went into Star-bu (Starbucks) and wasn't even planning on getting anything because I had already had my coffee for the morning...but the guy in there kind of knows me because he's the one I always see and he totally hooked me up! Free Caramel Macchiato. My fave. All I had to do was give him a wink...unfortunately for him I'm not a good winker, so I probably looked a mess. Anyways, thanks Michael at Starbucks in Decatur!

Happy Weekend!

What a Steal!

The Urban Outfitters near us was having a super sale this weekend! Half off already reduced home goods...so I picked up a new duvet cover...for only $16!! Can you believe it? Duvet covers are never that cheap.

It's so super cute. I love it. They didn't have the shams in the store, so I picked those up online today. So, the good news is that I got a super good deal on a new duvet cover and shams...the bad news is that this might be the start of a whole new room redecoration... :)

Off I go to sleep under my new duvet. Sweet dreams everyone!
