project 365 // days 30 - 37

30 : 365 A drawer of tiny dentures at Big Fun.
 31 : 365 I'm a sucker for french bread pizzas. I can never resist when Target has them on sale. I'm not pretending that I only buy them when they're on sale. I just mean that when they're on sale I buy even more than normal. I love loading them up with extras; feta cheese, pepperoni and a boatload of banana peppers are my favorite.
 32 : 365 New goodies from Explorer's Press. I'm crazy about the film pin.
 33 : 365 My little bat.
 34 : 365 Bouqs sent me over a bouquet of lillies. First of all, let's talk about the fact these puppies ship from either an active volcano (!!!) in South America or California. I mean California is cool and all but you guys, a volcano! They only cut what is ordered so no flowers are wasted. They shipped quick, arrived in pristine condition, bloomed in a few days and are absolutely beautiful. Yeah, Bouqs is pretty cool in my book!
 35 : 365 I finally got around to figuring out what I wanted on my living room walls. I like picking out things to decorate with but I hate hanging things. Luckily Jeff was a good sport while I bossed him around. "No, a tiny bit higher. To the left. Uh, I don't think so..." I can't walk into the room now without just stopping and taking a second to admire it. This place is looking SO gooooood! 

After Jeff was done he sat down and Professor immediately hopped up and started nuzzling him. I darted into my office, grabbed the camera and captured this super sweet moment. It might just be my new all time favorite photo. I can't look at it without getting butterflies. Those two are seriously way. too. cute. 
36 : 365 Not a very pretty photo, but a very important one nonetheless. Squid is head animal in this household. She commands respect from the others and she has never liked Klaus. It used to be that if she was in the hall, Klaus was in the bedroom and I was on the other side of the hall calling him he wouldn't come because he was afraid of her. And now look at them here, sharing a ray of sunshine. This is seriously such a big deal. I doubt I'll catch them cuddling any time soon but moving into this new apartment did wonders for the animals. I don't think they were unhappy in the old one but they're definitely LOVING it here which makes me love it even more.
 37 : 365 Jeff and I took a trip to Pittsburgh just to go to Ikea to pick up a specific rug that I thought would tie my living room together (spoiler alert : it does. I cannot wait to share photos!!!!) We, of course, had to stop for macarons too. These are from Jean-Marc Chatellier's French Bakery, literally the absolute best I've ever had. I bought one of each flavor, I can't even choose a favorite.
Pretty awesome week if I do say so myself!
xoxo

  1. If you love those french bread pizzas try making your own! Don Pepinos canned pizza sauce is freakin amazing! I was buying tons of those pizzas and decided to make my own. I was always loading them with extras also.

    1. I'm a classic type. I load mine up with black olives, green pepper and onions. I buy the cans of whole black olives-slice some for the pizza and eat the rest. Ha!

      My hubby loads his with pineapple-we buy the small indiv cups-its just enough to top a small pizza.

      Also, if you like green, red or yellow peppers you can buy fresh cut them, freeze on a baking sheet then put into ziplocs in the freezer. Then they are ready to put on a pizza without having to cut them each time you use them.

  5. Oh that pizza looks so yummy! I am a banana pepper fool. It's so sweet Squid and Klaus are finally warming up to each other. Two of my cats don't really get along but the other day I caught them sharing a blanket on the couch, I wanted to squeal with joy!

  6. When doing research to see how long it make take my two kitties to like each other (5 months in and they're doing SO much better!) I read that a big event like moving will often break some ice and bring them together. :-)

    1. I've heard that too but it's just strange that moving into the first apartment didn't do it for them.

  8. I got hungry just staring at that pizza. I love the pins, too. My fave would be the flower. And I just love the fact that you're both a cat and dog person.

  9. "That rug really tied the room together, did it not?". Now I really want to leave work and watch the Big Lebowski. And eat pizza, haha.

    1. Hahaha. I've been making Big Lebowski references about the run since I got it. But in seriousness, it REALLY really does tie the room together.

  10. I love French bread pizza, but I choked while eating it once, and my boyfriend had to give me the Heimlich (yes, it worked, and yes, it was scary!), so he won't let me eat it anymore. LOL!

    I'm so in love with Ikea...our house it full of it. Have you tried their cinnamon rolls? I just ate a tray of 6 this past week after our last visit...so good!

    1. Hahah! Oh no!

      Yes, I actually had one for the first time when we went to pick up the rug. It was amazing. I could definitely go for one right now.
