Princess Pictures and Stuff, Just Stuff

Here she is after coming home from the vet's office yesterday.

Poor thing has to wear the collar until the 27th of March. The 27th people!

It is a soft Elizabethan collar versus one of the hard plastic ones so I'm thankful for that even if she isn't.

Feast your eyes upon her new stylin' haircut. They shaved her butt area even more than the Brazilian and part of her leg where the IV was.

I about fell out when I saw the bill and noticed it was $30.00 for that little bit of action.

Mars said it must of been a salon quality cut.

At that price I should of gone ahead and requested the full on lion cut but it is not warm enough yet and I figured if only part of her would be shaved, I wouldn't traumatize her further.

This is a somewhat close up shot of her bootay. I think the drains resemble little bows.

One last picture for all of our viewing pleasures.

Now let us talk about the pillow she is laying upon.
The other night I received a text from Fiwa saying she felt the need, the NEED for sushi.
Once I got past the Top Gun reference I laughed and we set up time for Thursday lunch.
Just so you know, I'm still not able to enjoy the Top Gun movie or soundtrack. Thanks Crazy Lady. It used to be one of my favorite movies. What child of the 80s doesn't like good looking men in uniform, beach volleyball, a little bit of romance, and jet planes?
After lunch I asked if she wanted to accompany me on some shopping errands and she said yes.
Yay for me to have company.
Off to Bed Bath and Beyond we went. I was on the hunt for new pillowcases as the ones I had were looking worse for wear. Ace would have told me to take my arse to Ikea but I thought I would give it a try first since I had a coupon.
Once I came across the furry cheetah print shams marked down, I had to. I just had to.
I knew the furbaby would love them and the color scheme matches perfectly. Plus I seem to have a small thing for animal prints.
You can tell I was right as evidenced above. There she lays on her new furry feline pillow sham.
My bedroom has now gone to the animals. Rawr!
From there we went to Pier 1, Trader Joe's, and JoAnn's.
Thank you again Cheryl for the gift card for my birthday months ago. I used it yesterday to buy diffuser refill oil and room spray.
Trader Joe's is almost a weekly stop for me. Gotta' stock up on the kitty food and we all know I need my Chai Tea Latte powder mix.
JoAnn's was a necessary stop as well. See my bouncing around comfy jeans need a repair. There was no "boring match the patch to the jeans" iron on patch selection going on.
Nope, I went for a camo one.
Since I was unable to find the stamp I have in mind for my Easter cards, we're going to Impress today. Ikea too but not before we meet Mars for lunch.
Oh and some of y'all keep your eyes on the mailbox. I mailed 30 cards this morning. I didn't do Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's or Valentines Day but boy howdy I did St. Patrick's Day good this year.
Ok, technically I made those cards last year and didn't mail them on time for 2008 but still!
When Fiwa asked me yesterday if I enjoyed making cards I told her yes. I really do. Without a doubt I like to play with paper, ink, and stamp or two.
What sometimes seems like a daunting task is to write the sentiment and hand address the envelopes in mass quantity.
I have found through the years once you get in the habit of sending a handmade card the few times you don't peeps will ask why you didn't make one and almost scoff at the store bought one.
It's nice to have my crafty creations appreciated but sometimes I run out of time.
Shame on me too. The list of people I want to send them to is 20+ so we're talking mass production.
I've done this to myself so if I sound like I am whining or complaining, I'm not. I am just sayin'.
With all this being said, I hope you have some fun things planned for the weekend and will be able to spend time with the ones you love and that love you.
For now I need to go and get ready to do just that.
Peace and Love Peeps.

Awww... she LOVES her pillow! Man, that was worth any price - sale or not. Poor punkin, she looks zonked out.

Sorry about the thoughtless Top Gun reference, I didn't realize you were that traumatized. Heehee...

This post is bordering on CAT PORN! Poor baby! I hope Princesses dignity isn't dented too much.

And: "My bedroom has now gone to the animals" is just asking for a wise crack. I get Brownie points for resisting the temptation on that one.

Poor baby! Hope she is all better soon.

I hate Top Gun!

Aw, poor kitty. I'm glad too, that she got a soft ConeHead - haha, get it?! :)
After making Jeffrey's birthday party invitations, I'm hooked (thanks FW) - so now,I too want to make all my cards hand mande. They are so appreciated!
