Apparently, I'm 30

So I was checking out Miss J's blog and found this to be very interesting... Personally, I think I'm pretty mature, but 30????

You Are 30 Years Old

Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view - and you look at the world with awe.

13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.

20-29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.

30-39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!

40+: You are a mature adult. You've been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.

Hey...That's not Cool

I used to hate cats. REALLY hated them. Growing up, my family had dogs, fish, and a turtle here and there.

I had a friend who had a few cats. For some reason, all of her cats were assholes. They weren't playful or friendly, and they smelled funny. Don't get me wrong... sometimes a fish/turtle tank can get a little stinky, and a dog can get really smelly sometimes, too, but at least they weren't assholes.

Up until I started dating Jason (which seems like forever now), I never really gave cats a chance. He was the complete opposite when it came to pets. He grew up with a cat that remained in his care for about 15 years. He would tell me stories of how she was so sweet and was quite honestly his best friend growing up. So when we decided to take the plunge and invest in a pet, I was very hesitant about getting a cat.

We used to live in this TINY apartment in Long Beach, so a dog really wouldn't be feasible, so I gave in and we ended up adopting our kitties, Lilo and Stitch. They are the most wonderful furry beasts, and I've never regretted getting them.

Stitchy can be lame sometimes, because he loves eating my plants and has this thing for opening packages that aren't meant for him (he loves bags that come from Macy's most).

On the other hand, he waits for Jason in the morning to wake up and head butts him as a morning greeting. See, it's cute.

Lilo is technically my kitty. She's always been attached to me, but ever since I got pregnant, she's been like guardian for me. She sleeps on my belly when I'm in bed, and when I wake up, she massages my belly with her front paws. She watches me brush my teeth, and sometimes jumps in the shower with me in the morning. Adorable...

So I'm online looking for pumpkin carving ideas, and I randomly find these pictures:

I know I'm probably just really sensitive and all, but dude.. those pictures suck!

Happy Birthday!!!

My favorite sister, Myra is celebrating her 29th (gasp!) birthday today.

Happy Birthday, Myra!!!

I woke up, took her to lunch (at our new favorite place, Corner Bakery), went to the mall for some shopping, drove her to the bank, then to the post office, (chauffeuring is also a requirement when you're celebrating someone's birthday) then bought her ice cream at Cold Stone Creamery . As we were driving back home, we stumbled upon this awesome jewelry store and I ended up buying her a pair of earrings she thought were cute but didn't want to spend the money on.

We'll be having dinner at C & O's Trattoria in Marina del Rey. Apparently the food there is super fabulous and I'll be spending a pretty penny for everyone's dinner.

It's only 6:00pm and I'm EXHAUSTED!!! Wish me luck and lots of energy (because I surely need it!)!

Happy Halloween!!!

Happy Halloween, everyone! All I've been hearing all weekend is "Are you going to WeHo?". Unfortunately, I can't go, but wish everyone the best in their Halloween adventures on the Blvd. Every year, there's always a really cool story of how someone saw an old friend they haven't seen in years or how had a great time drinking or how WONDERFUL all the costumes were.... If you go, I'm sure you'll have a great time. Have a drink for me. :)

As for me, my plans consists of carving a last-minute pumpkin for my boyfriend who volunteered to work the closing shift so his staff could go out and have a good time tonight. (He's so adorable sometimes) Other than that, I'm on candy distributing duty, as that's pretty much the only thing my pregnant ass can tolerate.
I made a pumpkin like this last year and it freaked my Mom out. I thought I'd do it again. :)

I will be spending a few minutes paroozaling the candy aisle very soon... sooo tempting...

So yeah.. have fun! Can't wait to hear about the festivities! :)
