Happy New Year Dear Friends

We are so happy to be moving on and starting fresh with 2010.
Thank you for being part of our 2009.

We have had a number of black and white days during 2009 and we are hopeful that 2010 will be full of color and wishes come true for all of us.

We spent part of our New Year's Eve at one of our favorite places (Denny's) writing lists.
I figured the only good thing that happened in 2009 was Daniel's graduation but the list was longer than I imagined it would be.

My favorite part of the night was when we made our wish list for 2010.
That and having our last sundae of the year and visiting some favorite Seattle spots.

We hope your New Year is full of optimism.

love love,
Kitty, Dan, and Bono Baby

p.s. Remember to sign up for the giveaway.

Like Stars That Glitter In The Sky

Five years ago today, Dan and I had our first "offical" date.

We also had our first kiss.
Here is a poem that Dan wrote about it.

I wouldn't change a thing.
Thank you for 5 wonderful years Dear Daniel.
I love you.

xoxo,

You Can Never Have Too Many Christmas Wishes

I have a list of Christmas Wishes this year.
One of them is for us to have a baby in the next year or so.
I think this movie, Babies, might be a good substitute for the time being.
It looks super cute.
But then again, all babies are super cute.
They just can't help it.
love love
To Me You Are Perfect

2009 is quickly coming to an end. One of my favorite modern day Christmas films to watch is Love Actually, it reminds me that Christmas is a special time of the year to share your feelings, the truth, and LOVE.

2009 has been one of the most stressful years of my life. Some days I think it is the most stressful year for sure. But, as I have my two year blog anniversary coming up next month (keep a look out for the anniversary giveaway) I am able to look back and see all the positive and amazing things that have happened to me in this year, 2009.

I love that I can look back to my old blog posts and see only goodness and growth.
2009 may have been stressful but it has also been full of happiness and good times.
LOVE is all around.

I am most thankful for my family and friends.
My support system.
Thank you for being you.
Thank you for checking in with me on this little blog.
It means so much to me.

My Christmas Wish is for us all to be happy.
For us all to find LOVE in our lives.

love love love,
Kitty

p.s. What is your Christmas Wish?

I'm A Little Bunny.
I Love Me and I Love You.

My dear friend Pam is moving in two weeks.
We were able to get together for lunch this week and spend some time together.
She is wonderful and I am going to miss her so much.
I love learning about the story of her life.
That is my favorite thing about friendship.
Sharing.

She gifted me this little bunny.
I am in LOVE with it.
I named it Pam.
Every time I look at my little bunny Pam I will think about my dear friend Pam and our sweet friendship.

Pam, I will miss you.
I hope I can come to Minnesota one day and see you.
love love love

Kitty Loves Christmas
I am a Christmas girl.
I love Christmas.

This is my first Christmas away from home.
I have been very blessed.

I've shared all of my Christmas memories with these 3 kids.
I wish I could be with them next week.

This year I will be in Washington with my family here.
But, I'll be thinking of my family in California.
Wishing I was with them.
I love you family

It's So Hard To Let Go Of The Lil' Bandito

I've been busy updating our shop, Fritzi Marie.
I'm about 1/4 of the way through.
I've found so many wonderful treasures lately and I haven't had time to list them.
So, I am overwhelmed with treasure goodness right now.
This lil' bandito has caught my heart. I am so tempted to keep him.
I LOVE HIM.
I hope someone loves him as much as I do.
He is the cutest.
love you,
Kitty

The Universe Is Looking Out For Me

I bought some gloves the other day. It's been cold, I needed them.
I came home and realized that they were overpriced and mediocre.
Blah. Blah.
The next day I found these pretty gloves at an estate sale and I'm in LOVE with them.
I took the overpriced gloves back.

Then my in-laws gave me these gloves. They were Daniels' Grandmother's.
I feel so lucky.

I have another blog that is private (Fritzi Wishes) and it is a place where I put all of my wishes.
It's kind of like an inspiration board.
I blog about the things I would love to have.
It's my wish catalog.
Anyhow, I wished for one of these scarfs a while back.
Today, I found one on a shelf at the thrift store for 69 cents.

Thank You Universe
Are you a believer?

We are big BELIEVERS in true love around here.

I've been up to my ears with work, Christmas preparations, and Etsy shop shopping.
We needed a break from our Christmas movies so we watched Paper Heart last night.
We put off seeing it because I thought it would be like Juno and that movie bugs me.
I loved this movie.
Charlyne Li is just about the cutest thing ever.
She makes me wish I had dimples.

xoxo,
Kitty

Comfy Bed Day

I've been feeling under the weather.
Boring.
I had to call in sick to work today (one of my least favorite things to do).
I spent the day in bed sleeping the day away with Bono Baby.
I woke up to watch Doc Martin with my Mother-in-law and I am so happy that I did.
Doc Martin and girl time with my Mother-in-law helped me feel better.

Happy Weekend Friends and Family

I've missed you all so much,
Kitty

Brrrrr...It's Cold Outside.

It's so cold that even Bono Baby is wearing a turtleneck.

I think he looks like a Northwest dogie in his outfit.
But he is a California puppy deep down.
He doesn't like to walk with his sweater on.

hugs,

Kitty and Bono Baby
I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm

The holiday is swirling around about us.
It's beautiful, even with the grumpy shoppers.
We have been busy watching our favorite Christmas movies.
Last night we watched, White Christmas.
I'm sure you'll love the Sisters as much as I do.





I hope we all have a White Christmas.
I don't really mean a Christmas full of snow (though that would be nice) but instead one full of family and good times.

p.s. What Christmas films do you like to watch every year?

Treasure Hunt Goodies




We found some lovely treasure for the shop this week. I thought you would like to see what we decided to keep for ourselves. I still have to show you the tie we found for Dan and the turtleneck sweater that Bono Baby found.
Keep and eye on the shop this week. We are going to be super busy updating the shop on Monday.
I think you'll find some treasure for yourself for sure.
Yippee.

"Rocks?"



We went on our date to see Everybody's Fine.
Friends, go see this movie.
It made me think about how thankful I am for my dear family.
I can't wait to go home sometime soon.

Happy Weekend

p.s. I had a lady compliment me today. She said I was so wonderful and that I should be working at Nordstrom. That tickled my funny bone.

Preparation

Dan and I went on a mini date tonight. Tomorrow night is the real one. After work we are going to do it up right. We're even going to the movies to see Everybody's Fine.
I can't wait.

Do you have any special plans for the weekend?
Happy Mail

This cute little kitty arrived on my doorstep this week. She came from Century Finds and I am in LOVE with her.

p.s. You'll be seeing a lot more of this little Kitty soon. Look out world.

The Issaquah Boys

Dan's best buddy Craig humored us and took our Christmas photo today.


Here is a preview.

Thank you Craig.
You're the best.

Man Man

I've had this song by Man Man stuck in my head all day.
I saw them play in Hattiesburg, Mississippi (of all places).
My friend Genevieve, who I miss so very much, introduced me to them.

Listen to them, I think you'll be humming their toon too.

hugs

Make Up

I was cleaning out my makeup bag the other day and I thought I'd share some of my favorites with you.
Just for fun.
I fell in LOVE with Benefit makeup ten years ago.
My must haves are:

1. Benetint: It gives your lips the perfect tint and doubles as a cheek stain.
2. Ooh La Lift: It works magic on my under eye circles.
3. High Beam: It makes you glow.
4. Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow: My favorite shades are R.S.V.P and Flatter Me.

Check Benefit out, the packaging it beautiful and the goods are GOOD.

Do you have any favorite beauty products to share?

Happy Mail

My dear friend Lindsey sent me some happy mail.
I'm in love with this magazine Uppercase and so thankful that Lindsey took the time to introduce me to it.

She also sent me my very first Betsey Johnson dress.
Thank you Lindsey.
You are TOO much.

love you,
Kat
Shop Business

Bono loves to help me put together packages of love for our little shop Fritzi Marie.
I like to call him my little investor.

p.s. We are hoping to put up new treats in the shop this week.
Too fun.
Dog-End Of A Day Gone By


The pretty fall leaves have fallen and it seems like our neighborhood has been covered with moss. I love how the red's of the leaves and the green moss yell, "Christmas."
It makes me want to watch Amelie.
I'm always looking for a reason to watch sweet Amelie.

Have I mentioned how much I love my boys?

Happy December 1st Dear Friends
