Anything Goes Friday

Today I wanted to share with you some things I am super excited about. Mainly, movies and TV shows. The number one show I am eagerly anticipating is:

Game of Thrones (Season 3) March 31, 2013

I am literally on pins and needles of excitement waiting for this show to start up again. HBO is doing a great job with it so far and having to wait almost a year for each new season is pure agony! I am actually still reading all of the novels and it really makes me want to try my  hand at a fantasy one day. 

Vikings (Season 1) Showing Now

Hubs and I have recently started watching this new series on the History channel. I'm really liking it. For the History channel it is done very well and it's been holding me over until Game of Thrones starts up again. Learning about the vikings and how they discovered the lands to the west of their home has been very interesting. Good series! I highly recommend it.

Olympus Has Fallen (March 22, 2013)

1. Morgan Freeman
2. Gerard Butler

Need I say more? But I will, one of the best composers of this generation, Trevor Morris, has done the soundtrack. Looks like a good flick and Hubs doesn't know it yet, but we're going to the movies this weekend! =P

Star Trek Into Darkness (May 17th, 2013)

The Trekker in me is jumping up and down screaming like a little school girl at a Justin Beiber concert. No lie. And yes, I called myself a Trekker. Why? Because I have seen every Star Trek series and movie. My aunt is a HUGE trekker (she has the Enterprise phone, guys) and her and my mom introduced me to the original series with William Shatner when I was a kid. I spent my childhood summers going from one Star Trek convention to the next. I even had a pet tribble. See...I bet you didn't know that about me.  Seriously, I could do the live long and prosper signs on both of my hands before I was even in kindergarten. These movies have been well done and my heart sings with joy that they didn't mess them up royally.

P.S. My aunt doesn't actually use the phone. It's a collectors item, never opened, tucked away safely in it's original packaging. Amongst all of her other Star Trek paraphernalia. 

Leornard Nimoy and I share the same birthday. =P

Iron Man 3 (May 3rd, 2013)

Omg... I love me some Iron Man!!! Robert Downey Jr. Enough said! (I've always pictured him as my Lucifer in the Nether Books).

The Great Gatsby (May 10th, 2013)

Seriously, all these movies speak for themselves. But - I was so sad when they pushed the release date back on this one. I love Leo, he is a great actor. I've seen all of his movies. I also love that this movie is done by the same director that did Romeo and Juliet as well as Moulin Rouge. It will be epic!!

Man of Steel (June 14th, 2013)

Henry Cavil + Superman = loads of awesome! I fell in love with Henry while he was on the Tudors so to see him star as one of my favorite super heroes is beyond fantastic. Also, there are so many other great actors in this flick. Russell Crowe, Amy Adams, Kevin Costner and so many more!

Seriously, I will be at the movies every weekend in May. Did you see all of the awesome coming out in May? Those are my picks for actually going to a theater to see a movie. All the other stuff I will just Netflix eventually. We only go to the theater for totally awesome movies we just have to see on the big screen. All of these I posted are a must see for me. I will also own all these movies and shows once they are on blu-ray. 

My plan this weekend is to see Olympus Has Fallen and do some registry stuff at Baby's R. Us. Also...I get my new bengal kitten Loki on Monday! The day before my birthday - YAY! What an awesome present!

P.S. Thank you all for the wonderful congrats on our baby! I felt her kicking for the first time last night. =) It was super exciting. Also, I think she is going to be a night owl like her momma. =/

Have a great weekend!

Birthday Bliss

I turned thirty seven this past weekend (cringe), but I had a blast doing it!

My husband and daughter made me cards (I prefer these versus bought cards). I love that they take the time to make a card each year, it makes me feel extra special. Although, this year kiddo's car was a "flat card", her words. She didn't want to fold the artwork. I totally get you, mini me.

Saturday I had a kid free day with a friend and we spent hours laughing and thrift shopping. I found some great treasures and even a pair of bright flowery running shorts. I will take a picture of said shorts as they embarrassed my friend and she vowed NOT to be seen running with me at our next race if I wore them. I took that as a compliment and a challenge. =P Later that night hubby and kiddo took me to dinner at my favorite Thai restaurant (they aren't open on Sundays).

Sunday I finally checked out one of those bar/painting shops. Five girlfriends and I drank, laughed, painted and had a great tim…

Help, My Cat is Pooping Outside the Litter Box!

This is Princess Leia. Lately, little miss Leia has had a bit of an issue. She's been pooping outside of the litter boxes. See? Even a cat behaviorist can have cats with issues. Luckily, Leia's problem was quickly and easily diagnosed. My Bengal, Loki, had been bullying her away from the litter boxes. We set up a nice little box for her in a quiet area of the house and she hasn't had any issues since. I really think she is enjoying the fact she gets her own powder room. But, there can be many reasons a kitty starts this type of behavior so I am going to go over the most common ones below.

Here are some of the basic reasons:

1. A recent litter brand change.
Cats are huge creatures of habit and often finicky when it comes to their poop dirt. If you recently changed their litter try going back to the old stuff.   2. The litter isn't deep enough.
Some cats love a lot of litter and are big diggers. If they don't have enough litter (an amount to their liking, not yours) k…

Cats & Vaccines

This gorgeous boy had to get some vaccines yesterday. I keep all of my furbabies up to date with their vaccinations and you should too. My kitties rarely ever go outside, but I still get them all their shots just in case. You never know. I once had one of my indoor only kitties get let out by an old roommate. The cat was missing for three long weeks. I was in agony not knowing where my baby was or what could be happening to him. Lucky for me, he showed back up but not without some very serious injuries. I never vaccinated him for outdoor stuff because, he was only indoor. Well, many years later I lost him to Feline Leukemia. The only time he could have contracted it was during the time he was lost. I was devastated. He could have lived a much longer life and I learned a very hard and valuable lesson.

That being said, Loki is normally a very active and spazy cat. Call it a Bengal thing. However, after three vaccines yesterday I could tell this morning he was feeling a bit blah and ten…
