All Cats Go to Heaven

We got Rosy when I was six years old. She was our second cat and we loved her so.

I remember picking her out-she was so tiny! She was such a good kitty-she let me dress her up in my doll clothes and push her around in my doll stroller (unfortunately I don't have these photos on this computer). She loved chasing birds around our yard and once in a while would bring us one, so proud of her catch. She got along really well with Goldie the goldfish-loved to stick her paws in his bowl. Other pets came and went, but Rosy still stuck around. My dad was convinced she'd outlive us all. He pretended to hate her but we know he loved her just as much as the rest of us.

After a good 19 years, Rosy finally decided it was time to go. It is going to be so strange to go home for Christmas and not have Rosy around-napping on her mat and meowing away.

Rest in Peace Rosy!! We will miss you!!

Halloween 2010

This was the first Halloween in a while that I actually dressed up. And I think it was a success. Remember this white dress...from the white party this summer...

Well, I got crafty and turned it into this....

Thanks to a little bit of cutting, some gold items from American Apparel, and some safety pins, my white sundress became my Egyptian tunic/dress thing. I was actually pretty pleased with how it turned out. And not really sad to modify my dress, I didn't like it much to begin with...Here are more photos from Halloween...

Karen as a duckie, Jen rocking the 20's vibe, and Erin the Egyptian

Justin Beiber made an appearance, complete with hand bedazzled jacket and hat

Anita the geek and Antoine Dodson

My favorite costume of the night-NYC stockbroker, complete with coke remnants...

Jen, Betty White, Alice in Wonderland, and the Queen of Hearts

All in all it was a good night. After the party at Kristin and Ruthy's some of us went down to the LES to dance the night away. It was a good time but suffice it to say that New Yorkers on Halloween are crazy...don't think I'll be making any more Halloween trips to the LES...

How was your Halloween? Did you dress up?!?
