Cutie owl necklace

Note: This is post 100

A darling gift from a dear friend. I adore it.

Owls are so cute and so I wear owl clothes, pins and now a necklace. I'm excited to show it off!

Thanks Clare.

Disappointed by cuteness

Why do I always think that Disappointed is spelled with two esses? Silly brain!

Perhaps, disappointed describes my feelings a bit strongly regarding my Recent acquisition of a pale pink Tofu bank, but here's the story:

I saw this little cutie at my favorite cute things store and on the generic tofu box style packaging, it said "tofu saver." I thought, "finally, someone else with my dilemma of how to save leftover tofu. Maybe it keeps even longer in this little box." I'll admit, I didn't look very hard at the item inside, it was too cute and I wanted it, no matter what it was. So, I bought it, brought it home, opened it up and was promptly shocked; it was a tofu shaped money bank. oh! that's what it meant by tofu saver. A tofu shaped block of plastic with a slit in the top designed for saving money. Makes sense. But I already have a piggy bank with kisses all over it and a little owl bank with glow in the dark eyes that scare me at night. I haven't filled those "savers" up yet.

Maybe I'll use this little pink creature to save up for some tofu, or perhaps I'll use it to save up for a trip to Japan. Who knows what I'll do with it, but despite it's total uselessness, I still like a happy bank named bean curd.

Stolen Photos

I stole a few photos from Jessica's Flicker page just to show what Matthew and I looked like at the Kentucky Derby party. I really have to start taking my camera to these sorts of things. I'll forever be stealing photos from people at this rate.

a little visit to the zoo

Today, we took a little trip to the zoo, just a quick hour or two to see some animals. The zoo was too busy to stay long, but we caught a few cute animal pictures.

My favorite animal at the zoo, the Arabian Wild Cat

On the way home from the zoo, we spotted one of the few bunnies that hops around the park, there used to be more of them.
