The last month: Birthdays, dancing, kitty trees…

Yeah, I can’t do these posts lol I just have a hard time keeping up! I think I subconsciously wait at least a couple weeks to do this so I’ll have something to say seeing as I hardly go anywhere. But this time I have something to say about each of these pictures.

End of July and beginning of August

[1] I celebrated my 25th birthday at the end of last month (Woohoo! *old*). My sisters from the church were there to celebrate with me and bake me this cake (it’s chocolate, a favorite of mine).

[2] My husband’s birthday is six days after mine, so when our birthdays come around every year we tend to mash them together as far as cake and presents and all that stuff. This year presents were had by both of us and the cats, who love their new kitty tree; they’ve been missing one ever sine the move so we thought it was time to replace it (finally). We each got a couple things for ourselves for our birthdays. I usually only get a couple things I’ve been eyeing or wanting for sometime before that, nothing crazy but I will share them at the end of this post.

[3] I’ve been messing around in Photoshop again. I’ve done two of these kind of pieces; they are characterized my a somber, morbid kid of mood and are very minimal otherwise; I’ve decided to put them into a series. I’m actually working on another.

I’m thinking now that I’m going to put all of my old stuff into series as well, and while I’m at it, I’ll be combining my sites – they’re just useless on their own :(

[4] The hubby and I did some serious cleaning and sorting (again) last month and rediscovered our love for Dance Dance Revolution. When we first got married we were so enamored with playing DDR that we bought arcade-style metal pads to dance on. It’s still fun :)

[5] I included a picture of my baby boy, Max because I can’t wait to see my other kitties! I’ll be going down to SC at the end of the month to visit my parents, friends and of course, my kittens!

[6] Eariler this week I went down to center city and discovered this lovely place. John F. Collins Park is a tiny, zen-like oasis in the middle of the tall buildings and bustle of the city; I sat there for a while and I imaged that the space must be invaluable to some of the people that work downtown in the busyness and noise. Best part is that there’s a sushi bar on the same block (sushi’s my favorite food ever). I think I may have found another spot in the city that I like to be in.

Birthday haul time! Actually, I only gifted myself two things so I don’t know if this qualifies as a haul but…

Per my Instagram, I went to Target a few weeks ago and found this little beauty of a dress…and I do mean little, the XS was a perfect fit! I knew that I wanted to go back that grab it as my birthday present to me ;D Now to wear it before the summer’s gone!

Perfect summer dress.

I’m actually considering altering it a little so the straps are not criss-crossed in the back. What do you think?

Next, probably the sexiest keyboard EVER. I saw it on Sneakpeeq and had to have it.


It hasn’t arrived yet but I can’t wait. I’ve been in the market for a new keyboard for a while now and when I saw this one I knew I wanted it and not just because I fell in love with the design -it’s so 80slicious, yes? I also like it because of the space between the keys – good for coding purposes :D

That’s what I call a “haul” lol Not very exciting.
