Birthdays, Bows, and Banana Leaf Jammies (Or Hedy’s Birthday)

Monday is my Aunt Hedy’s birthday. (It also happens to be Tom Cruise’s birthday too — in case you care.)

Hedy’s leaving tomorrow for her annual holiday in Hawaii, so it was imperative that I deliver her present today.

OK, technically it was presents, plural, but whatever. 

I put shells on her plunder because she’s planning to bask on the beach for two weeks like a boss, and I like to be thematically appropriate when I can.

I may have used a glue gun… and paint pens.

Also?

I made sure the ribbons matched the card because I’m me — and I care about things like that.

Please ignore the dog toys on the floor. 

My attention to detail only goes so far; sometimes usually there’s an errant dog toy in my pics. (I’m all about gift wrap, but photography and I are NOT friends.)

So that’s the latest in my life.

Well, that and the super important thing that happened yesterday: my Katie Kime jammies arrived!!! They are a banana leaf print with a pink monogramed breast pocket and they are the absolute PINNACLE of bedtime fashion.

More on that later… I promise.

Now I need to kiss my beast on his gorgeous dog face 14,000 times before I go to work.

Enjoy your nap while I slave to keep you in kibble, kid.

Just kidding!!!

He’s the best baby ‘roo who ever lived, and I’d do anything to make him happy.

I fell in love online today.

See?

Just look at those lines! (source)

It would be SO perfect with monogrammed pillows I ordered from Joss & Main.

Can you IMAGINE? (source)

The only problem?

This guy doesn't bathe regularly.

This guy sleeps on my couch… and he pees on his own feet.

He’s my favorite living creature, so I have to take him (and his pee feet) into consideration even if my design heart breaks a little each time.

So… I didn’t order the couch… and I died a little inside.

I did order these gilded creatures in an attempt to assuage my grief, though.

I can't wait to throw a party with these! (source)

The angry hippo is my favorite. (source)

They make me want to plan a party.

So does the frozen rose in my freezer.

More on that later….

XOXO
