My girl turns 3 today.  I never had a pet growing up even though I desperately wanted one. My parents felt a dog would be too much work given everyone's busy schedules.  My mom was allergic to cats.  It wasn't until I was in my very first apartment without a roommate or boyfriend that I seriously considered adopting one.

Then one day, while on a break a work, I came across a picture of this tiny fuzzy creature standing on a pink blanket.  I knew she was meant to live with me.  She was the smallest and most timid of the litter.

So in thinking of names for her, I chose the smallest orphan in "Annie" as inspiration.  I named her Molly.

She was oh-so little when I bought her home.  Timid though? That trait disappeared the second she was away from her brothers and sisters. She's been running, jumping, playing and getting into mischief ever since. As bratty as she can be, she makes me laugh daily. I wouldn't trade my fuzzy girl for anything.

Happy Birthday Molly!

Balcony Makeover v2

Due to a myriad of circumstances since I moved in here, my balcony has never really looked the way I envisioned it.  Its pretty big as balconies go but its never been as comfortable or as much of the oasis that I wanted.

But 3 weeks ago, the demolition and renovation of the balconies on my building began and I think I should have access to it again by July!  So I'm daydreaming about finally making it the way I've always wanted.

Here's my wish list:

1. A colorful outdoor area rug (from Target but this pattern seems to have been discontinued)
2. Colorful throw pillows (from the Pillow Chix store on Etsy)
3. A grey outdoor sofa with chaise (from Maison Du Monde)
4. I've always wanted a Budda head statue. So beautiful!
5. Lots of flowers and plants
6. Strings of lights (I've seen these everywhere lately! Target has a great selection)

I'm not sure my balcony oasis will appear this season or if I'll have to wait until next summer but I enjoy daydreaming about it nonetheless.

Now that the warmer weather seems to be on its way, what's your plan for your outdoor space?
