you’ve got to be kitten me.

these have got to be some of the cutest freakin’ things i’ve EVER seen! cute cats in fashionable clothes, does it get any better? here’s a little fun fact about me: i’m a complete kitty fanatic. i love their walk, talk (meoooow), attitude, and confident nature. simply put: i pretty much love everything about cats. i mean, i was the crazy cat lady who back in the day believed my favorite cat of all time, alley, really understood me. actually, i’m still quite sure he did (hehe). he was so intelligent! alley was part cat and part grumpy old man/mama’s boy. oh, how i miss that cat! i used to think about what voice he would have if he could talk, which i was certain would be a distinguished british accent. i also think that if he got dressed up he would have chosen a sweater vest and blazer like the kitty in the top left hand corner. {insert: this girl is totally nuts} don’t all pet owners think about these things?! maybe not.

one or two of these heather mattoon prints will definitely be added to my christmas list this year. i can’t wait to hang them in the apartment!! wow, i can’t believe i’m already talking about christmas. i’m not going to lie, i’m pretty excited about the holidays and definitely in the festive spirit this year. there are so many things to look forward to, including going home next week for thanksgiving. it’s going to be so much fun. we’re taking a road trip down to riverside to spend the holiday with family and friends. this year my mama is cooking for our immediate family and my friends. and let me tell you, there’s nothing like a mom’s cooking. am i right? i can already imagine the delicious smell that will greet me when i open my mom’s front door. mmm! i can’t wait to eat my mother-in-law’s thanksgiving treats either. two moms equals double the food fun!

anyway when we get back, i will be totally set to go out and get a christmas tree. we will have a another tree trimming party just like we did last year and it’s gonna be totally awesome! food, drinks, friends, christmas music for as long as brian will tolerate it, and games! i better keep running to burn all the holiday calories i’m going to take in! oh, calories shmalories.

falling for fall sweaters.

falling for fall.

dear sweaters,

i love the four of you equally. to my geometric lovely, i’m not sure my closet will be complete without you! dearest peter pan collar, i need you, i want you, i looove you! polka dots, i can’t get enough of you! and to my eternal love, stripes- i will always adore you forever and ever! why can’t i have every single one of you? why do you have to break the bank? we’re going to have to do something about this! pronto.

with love,

aimee lynn

heart of gold.

a little over a week ago we had to say goodbye to our baby girl, mallory. our apartment feels so empty and we are having a difficult time accepting that she’s gone. but all we can do is remember what a beautiful, funny, and loving doggie she was. she had such a big heart and shared it with us everyday. brian and i are so fortunate that we got to spend over ten years with her. we will always love and miss our baby girl .

p.s. when we moved to san francisco we had to write a pet resume for mallory (most people chuckle when i tell them that). anyway, the top photo was her pet resume photo. she’s sooooo cute with that big ol’ smile. she was owning it for sure!

i have to return some video tapes.

here i am lost in lost weekend video. is it just me, or does anyone else get totally overwhelmed inside video stores? i swear i always have a list of movies in my head that i want to see, but when i go into the video store, my mind goes blank and i start picking up movies we already own. so what did i do? i headed to the wes anderson section and realized i wanted to watch bottle rocket. yep, a movie we already own. i saved more than a few bucks i suppose (especially since i’m the queen of late returns!) and then headed home for a ton of laughs watching bottle rocket.

on the list for tonight? american psycho (again).
