life moments

some pictures of life lately~


i finally dove into the challenging world of smartphones! after having my old one called "archaic," i was pretty much shamed into it. new phone on the left, old one on the right.

i read somewhere that animals who show you their bellies put a lot of trust in you. she lays like this 50% of the time.

an owl dish that i picked up at michael's for only $1.50!! i'm only sad his face is eventually going to be covered in trinkets.

    1. it's a samsung dart. evidently, it's a very "entry level" smartphone, and one of the cheapest ones. but i've been liking it so far! it seems pretty easy to understand. x

  6. Birthday flowers, strawberry candles, thermals...this is my heaven. Love this post. Had to tell you that you inspired me to splurge on a new swimsuit! :) It's from modcloth and super out of my budget but I decided to spoil myself anyway. :) Hope you have a great weekend, love.

    1. i'm so excited that i inspired you! which one did you get?? i felt the same when i bought mine, but i thought to myself- "self, you haven't bought a new swimsuit in over a DECADE. it's high time you have a new one." i had seriously been wearing an old ratty black american apparel bra and shorts to go swimming in. not no more!

  8. Love those flowers! ;)

    I didn't know that about cats! Dimitri would never let you touch his stomach before we moved and now he's always showing it to us and lets us rub it :p. I guess that's a great improvement, then.

    Michael's has so many great deals; I never leave empty handed. I can grab one thing from their bargain baskets and leave happy and smiling, hehe.

    Best luck tomorrow!!! ;D

    1. yup, it's true. similar story- max used to freak the hell out if we tried to touch his stomach. it's really taken him years to warm up to that area being shown any attention.

      i know, michael's can be a cheap thrill :)

    It's so much fun to find stuff you weren't even looking for.

    Have a great weekend!

  16. I've heard that about kitty bellies too- I always feel extra special when my cats are lying that way :) I got a uke a few months ago but haven't started learning it yet, I'm the queen of having musical dreams and being a total slacker!
