Dr. Seuss and Catheters

I'm super obsessed with Dr. Seuss as of late.  I literally sat in the middle of the book store floor and read Dr. Seuss for at least half an hour today. Seeing as I can't actually afford to buy the books, I had to quickly read before anyone caught me. The books have totally new meaning to me (as compared to when I was 5).

What a pimp.
My mom bought a ton of Dr. Seuss books. For me?! No. She informed me today that they were for her grandchildren. Seeing as I am her only child, isn't that a bit premeditated? A bit?

In other news, today I tried to be a housewife.

See! Look how domestic I look!
I made Catheter Cupcakes! Neil's little sister, Sarah, is having heart surgery on Wednesday. And what better way to celebrate a repaired heart than a slightly morbid batch of homemade (crumbly, not so tasty, not so good looking) heart-shaped cupcakes with real live "catheters" in each!
Mmmm... Catheter.

Canyon People. And new stylish house decor.

I'm back from my recent trip to southern Utah to do South Maidenwater Canyon and a Leprechaun Canyon.

While not as near death-y as last time, I was pretty excited about how the trip turned out. The canyons were awesome. And the people I got to go with rocked. Even more awesome? The people we met. While it's best that I don't blog about most of them, just know: I met some interesting people. 

Here is the whole awkward clan in Leprechaun Canyon. 
And here is the whole awkward gang in Maidenwater.

Thanks for all the planning and thought you put into this trip, Neil. You're a cutie. And thanks guys! You're...cute too?


This is big you guys. (False) Meo and I have been working out our decorating differences. I think we came up with a nice compromise. 

Cats. Because, in Meo's world, you can't go wrong with cats. While I don't TOTALLY agree... I went with it to prove to my little crafty housewife friends out there that THEIR HOUSE IS NO BETTER THAN MINE. Whew. Had to get that off my chest. 

Take that everyone. You'll be clawing (pun) to get your hands on cat paintings soon enough. 
Yes yes. The rest of the house has some vintage flair and classy women.
BUT don't mind that.
Cats go with everything...

Can you tell who made which one?

I know. It's hard.
