Random Thoughts and a Princess Wedding

Lady D,

You read my mind. I was just thinking I have too many daily emails in general... and then promptly signed up for one with Refinery 29. Ooops! Oh, and I added Fab. Gracias!

So first and foremost. A message:

Just kidding. What did you think? I.... think... itwasgorgeousandamazingandwowican'tbelieveitwastherealweddingofaprinceandprincess. For serious, the dress was not a surprise! But I thought she looked so, so beautiful!!

Phew. I'd love to say I think the craze is over. But in fact, I think it's just beginning. This is funny, though.

D, thank you so much for the sweet wishes about our anniversary. We had a wonderful day spent mostly on a blanket in Central Park. Then it was off to ABC Kitchen. Wow, so incredibly beautiful... maybe the most beautiful atmosphere I've ever been in to eat dinner. That is, if my chair wasn't getting smacked by a XL throw pillow being carried out by a shopper every 15 minutes.

Some of the yummies I ordered included a clementine fizz cocktail, fresh mozzarella, and well, frankly said, the best dessert I've ever had at a restaurant. There, I said it. It's the ABC Kitchen Sundae and is described as: "salted caramel ice cream, candied peanuts & popcorn, whipped cream, with dark chocolate sauce". Sounds like something you might make at a 3rd grade sleepover, am I right? Popcorn... on ice cream? CRAY-ZAY!! But, oh, let me tell you, this sundae rendered me speechless. Nick was speechless at my speechless-ness.

The only thing that could be better than that dessert was the arrival of a new addition to our little family! No, no, not a baby. Too much responsibility! A meow-meow? No, no. Still. too. much. responsibility. What is less responsibility than a cat? You guessed it! Our very own lil' guy:

We named him in honor of our 10 year anniversary. He's very pretty and a good swimmer. I'm not going let it get to me that he is in a not-so-pretty purple plastic container.

I think that's it for now. What are you up to this weekend? I have a funny feeling mine is going to involve an extra dose of laughter!



  1. So exciting that you've become beta-owners! They are the friendliest of fish! Sadly I have an empty bowl that's yours if you want it... Can't wait to meet Senor Diez!

  2. L-Love I was too scared to write back to this on Friday for fear of ruining your surprise party on Saturday (I had to cut down all communication with you!). But I would love a bowl! I will have to pick it up next time I'm home. RIP R.P.!

  3. You are the slyest, slickest bunch - I doubt I would have even noticed. Was I in the dark or what?! Thank you again for an amazing weekend and I'll definitely save my fish bowl for you - RP would be happy to know that his new cousin is using it.

  4. RP is Rice Patty ... Lori's beta who recently passed away. JEEZ. :)

  5. Lady D - How do you not know the names of all my past betas!? :) We must not forget Big Tuna who also rests in peace. The trend that you notice here is why I think I need to bequeath my fish bowl to Blythe and Nicky J...
