Happy Birthday Akira and Me!

I've been late wishing my little Akira happy birthday (sorry hun). Not that she can read.. but it's the thought that counts. It also happens that our birthday's are only 4 days apart, so I figured I would wish myself a happy birthday and let you in on what I have gotten so far!

Akira turned 2 this year and she has been a joy and a light in my life! I absolutely love my cat, and I cannot tell you how incredibly proud I am of her.

What do I have to be proud of? Well, this has been a hard year for her. She recently has had to give up her room, and some of her toys, to her new baby Brother, Storm Cloud. Yes, they went through a rough "adjustment" period, hating each other, and chasing each other around the house... but today they enjoy nothing more than lounging around near each other and licking each other in what can only be described as a somewhat disturbing display of kitty affection. It's like they cant get enough of each other's fur... gross.

Anyway. Akira has really done a lot better than I thought with the new addition to the family and I am really happy to report she's no longer angry with me and is again giving me "face rubbies," "kissies," and has started some new behaviors no doubt learned from Storm Cloud, sitting on my lap and licking my fingers.. weird but kinda cute.

As for me, I brought in my birthday last night at Karaoke! I had a great time! My friend, Kristed, got me some really cute balloons, and we all had a blast performing for Karaoke.

This morning Jeff came through and got me some awesomeness... dark chocolate and blueberry bark, massage envy gift card, and a cute card. A few months ago, my mom got me a really great pan set from La Creuset, and I have been using it religiously! My Dad got me a gift card to Bed Bath and Beyond! Much needed, thanks Daddy! So overall it's been a good birthday and I'm happy to have been born 2 dozen years ago! Wow I cannot believe I'm already 24. I always pictured 24 was the year I would start having children... now I feel like that might be too early. Guess we'll see?

So happy birthday Akira and Me!
