A VERY Happy Friday to you all! I thought this drawing was appropriate as my mom and I are currently shopping in Chicago for her Birthday getaway. You are going to be so excited, like $250 excited, when you get to the end of this post to enter an Awesome Sephora Gift Card Giveaway. You know, in case no one told you, the VIP Sephora 20% off sale begins the 13th and ends the 16th. This is such an awesome sale to stock up on products and gifts!!!

I Absolutely bust out laughing every time I see this kitty funny. Cracks me up! Even a little gold fish in the martini glass. Which takes be back to a story from 20 years ago this very week.... (yes, sometimes my memory is tops)...

Here is the crazy thing about my cat story, the kitchen this occurred in looked EXACTLY like this one. A lady I worked with and her husband were going out of town so she asked me to come over and feed her cats. I thought by her stories that she had 4 or 5 so I figured, I love animals, I got this. I turned the key and saw ONE cat on the chair and thought aww, the others are shy, they must be hiding. I went to the cabinet where the food was stored and it was a new bag so when I went to pull it open......2 DOZEN, yes, TWO DOZEN CATS pounced onto the kitchen counter top for their food. They were hissing and clawing and I Freaked. I put the whole bag of food in the biggest bowl I could find and high tailed it outta there. She forgave me for wanting to never come back and I "think" I forgave her for failing to tell me she had 24 cats!!!

I have so much Christmas Decor. However, each year around this time, I feel the need to purchase a couple 10 more things for my holiday decor collection. This 2 feet tall battery/timer lamppost will be perfect for one of my console tables. The check out girl at TJ Maxx even complimented how cute it was.

Just and eclectic, neutral blend....
