pretty sure you make the best cupcakes, brownies, pies and cookies in DC right now. why are you so awesome?
dear radio station,
isn't there something besides lady gaga to play?
i'm still sad you refused my brilliant birthday party idea for your big day this saturday. i will continue to bring this up for months.
dear ladies of the world,
do we really have to shave our legs so often? i'm tired of feeling guilty about rarely shaving. let's stop this madness.
dear pneumonia residing in my puppy,
leave. forever. and never come back.
thanks for being kind about this blog turning into a kingsley blog. and for being so supportive and kind while he's been so sick.
dear readers (again),
have you checked out the mini DC guide yet? my post about things to do in the district here, places to eat in the district here, music venues here and a few of my favorite DC shopping spots coming tomorrow.
dear pet insurance,
it's such a shame we didn't meet a few days earlier.
you are very hard to make. and you make me feel like i have zero skills.
thank you for finally getting here. hopefully i'll enjoy you while catching up on all my missed zzzzzzz's from the week.
it breaks my heart to see kingsley hooked up to an IV, isolated in an oxygen tank receiving breathing treatments with some stupid cone on his head so he won't pull out his IV. but the good news is, he's eating again and finally responding to us when we visit. we can't wait to bring him back home from the pet hospital.
also, thank you thank you thank you for sending good thoughts and positive energy his way. it means a lot.
such a brave little king.
kingsley, i love you.
*and these were taken with my iphone so sorry for the quality.
i took kingsley into the vet today because he didn't eat dinner last night or breakfast this morning and had a runny nose and cough all night.
i thought i was being paranoid because he just had a check up last week and all looked good. but turns out, he had to be admitted to the pet hospital this afternoon and is in the ICU being treated for pneumonia. it broke my heart to see his little lungs all cloudy on the xray.
please send good thoughts his way so he gets better and can come home in a few days. he's all we have and we love him very much.
everything going on in haiti is hard to stomach. the pictures, the stories, the reports. it's all very terrible and my thoughts and prayers go out to the people of haiti.
while it's a humble and very small offering, i'd like to donate all proceeds of the sales made in my love,taza shop over the next two weeks to the doctors without borders fund to help in haiti. so if you feel so inclined, click here to order a headband and donate to haiti.
***update: i should have know the haiti response would be so awesome. while i stocked the shop with a over 50 headbands this morning, we've sold out. i will try to make more this upcoming week for haiti. thank you everyone!!!
