Hey Copper!

Since I have been in lazy mode these last few weeks of pregnancy, I have rekindled my relationship with Netflix. There was a period where they lost the rights to one of the shows I had been half way through and I gave them the silent treatment. That moody phase has disintegrated and I've since found some shows that I not only like, I fell deeply in love with.

Yes, deeply. Maybe because the main actor was a steamy dreamboat of hotness or maybe because it was actually a well written and well done show. Okay, a mix of all of those things. Today, I want to introduce you to Copper.


Tom Weston-Jones (steamy dreamboat of hotness) plays the main character, an Irish immigrant, Detective Kevin (Corky) Corcoran.

This man is on fire!! I loved him in "As the World Ends" (also on Netflix). Seeing him as a ruthless copper in 1860's New York put me in swoon overdrive.

Kevin is on a mission. He not only wants to crack down on crime in Five Points, New York, he also wants to solve a mystery very close to his heart. His wife's gone missing and his little girl was murdered.

If you like CSI or Criminal Minds, you will love this. It's an 1860's version that blew my mind away. The characters are colorful and exciting. The setting is rugged and believable. The mix of drama and crime solving is a perfect blend. Seriously, you don't want to miss this one!  Copper is currently airing it's second season on BBC America (which much to my displeasure we do not have here in California). Luckily the whole first season is available to stream on Netflix. Honestly, it's so good I might watch it again. (Mainly to stare and drool over Tom Weston-Jones). Hey, at least I am being "real" with you guys! I'll already know what happens so I can just concentrate on the eye candy this time around.

If you love history and crime shows, you can't go wrong with this gem!

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…
