12 things that make me smile



Dreamy postcards,

Flowers that look like they're about to sing,
Japanese candy
Fun candy sent to us from Japan,



Chin straps,
(They look like they're wearing bike helmets. I imagine if I unstrap them all their hair will fall off!)
Camouflage trees,
Pee supervisors,
My pop fell asleep
Messing with your pop in his sleep,
Spotting a teeny rainbow on a gloomy day,
Getting panties in your birthday card from your bf's mother,
My brother's long, flowing, braidable hair,
(he's like the sister I never had!)
Matty hangin' with his dawgs,
and Moo hangin' with his bad self.

julia said...

This made me smile too :) I just started following your blog yesterday and I already love it. Any chance you know what the candy is called/where to get it? I love fun little things like that from Japan.

I have no idea what it's called since it was all written in Japanese and someone sent it to us. I wish I had more!

linnykins said...

Hehe! Thanks for making me smile, Katie! :) :) Moo is adorable. Makes me want to pick him up and give him a biiiig hug. Would he be okay with that? :)

Hannah said...

Simple things that cause a smile are the best. The tiniest ones are always great, just because of what a suprise they are. Little rainbows, singing flowers...
Just darling.

Kimberly said...

ampersandity said...

lisa said...

you're too cute! I love reading your blog!! you have the most creative ideas...like your speech bubbles you stick on the wall, they're just too COOL!

i have to help organise decorations for a ball coming up and the theme is james bond, do you have any interesting quirky ideas that come to mind? I'm finding it a bit hard to think of things :(
maybe like a silhouette of footsteps or a guy holding a gun on the walls?
and tables...casino chips?

it'd be really great if you could help me toss out one or two ideas :)

thank you so much!!!
<3 lisa, from australia :)

Renée said...

RUBIA ARGYI said...

Livie said...

i love the cat! reminds me of my cat libby, she will climb on the tallest most unstable thing and just lay there like it's no problem. oh kittys!

anna said...

This section of The Enchanted April made me feel this way today:

"Colour seemed flung down anyhow, anywhere; every sort of colour, piled up in heaps, pouring along in rivers-- the perriwinkles looked exactly as if they were being poured down each side of the steps-- and flowers that grow only in borders in England, proud flowers keeping themselves to themselves over there, such as the great blue irises and the lavender, were being jostled by small, shining common things like dandelions and daisies and the white bells of the wild onion, and only seemed the better and the more exuberant for it" I love your blog Katie, I am absolutely inspired by it!

Tibi said...

You are just hilarious.
Thanks for making me happy everytime I enter here!!

emmajane said...

You just made happy, and that's always a good thing to be able to do.
How you bless, Katie!

Kayla said...

Your cat moo is so bad ass! I love all the pictures of him :) he reminds me of my cat max except a little less acrobatic (hanging on a door frame? very talented!)

Mike said...

Spotting little light spectrums is the best. They seem like miniature pathways to some different dimension :)

Becca said...

Ha ha ha this is such a fun post. I like the part about the chin straps. You seriously got underwear from...? HA HA HA. Love it.
Have a great Thursday, girl!

The Kid In The Front Row said...

it's amazing what a central part of your blog the cat has become, very funny! In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if it's actually Moo that does most of the blogging..

Fee-AMore said...

My goodness, that camouflage tree is way too cool. And moo as usual cracks me up. Pee supervisor he sure looked like one!

Bodil said...

Sunny said...

aproapealb said...

I like your blog, your happines, your creativity and your pictures! I guess you hear this a lot so I just read your blog silently, but then I thought that maybe there are days when you need even more encouragement, so here it is: I encourage you to keep doing this. Maybe it could seem shallow, but I thought about it and it really brings smiles on people's faces, it gives us a touch of optimism and it puts us in a good mood. :)

I can't believe they sent you underwear... hahaha. I would think that would be so awkward! (They are pretty cute though)

Jessica Brookman said...

Hi katie,

I stumbled on your blog while looking for photos for my review of Paulie Gee's in Greenpoint. I linked one of yours and put it in my post (giving you photo creds, of course). I also noticed we have something in common: big black and white cats named Moo!

cheers!
Jessica

Elyse said...

I almost can't believe that cat. Does he actually get into those places by himself? If he does, I love him even more.

Agagooga said...

I love French braids

Ask your brother to grow his hair longer so the braid will be longer!

milk tea + polkadots said...

You find Moo in the funniest places! How is that door even comfortable?? Hahaha...

Lisette said...
