My First Basketball Game!

Guess what, guys?  Last night I went to my very first basketball game!  Auntie Emilie brought me with her to cheer on Danielle, who helped her school's team to win the League Championship, the first time in more than 30 years!  Wow, huh? It was so much fun.

After the game we did a little shopping.  All the winter gear was 50% off!  You know how I love a bargain!

Of course, I had to carefully inspect the goods up close.

Baby Brunhilda

I already embarrassed Iggy by sharing some of his baby pics, so it was only fair that I embarrass my sister too, so here's a baby pic of Black Mamba.  She was about 3 months old, and still had her puppy fat.  Now that she's grown we call her fat "curves."

Union Station

Had to swing by and pick someone up at one of my favorite places in town recently, our gorgeous Union Station.  I love this place:  the spectacular architecture, the hustle and bustle, hellos and goodbyes.  Also known as "The Last Great Railway Station," it's such a romantic place, it makes me feel like I'm in an old movie from the 30's or 40's.  Loves it!

Workin' it outside the entrance.  Work!  Turn to the left!  Work!

People-watching in the dramatic lobby.

I wore what I call my "Casablanca" jacket--my cute stylish white trench.  Whenever I wear it I feel so glamorous, like I'm on my way to Rick's CafĂ© AmĂ©ricain, and romance and intrigue are about to ensue.  An afternoon duck breast treat is about the most thrilling it gets around here these days.  But mark my words, oh yes, exciting adventures will be mine.  Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow...but soon and for the rest of my life!

At Union Station I was also lucky to meet this cutie, Ami Yares, a musician from Joisey.  
He was on his way to his gig but made time to chat with us and give us a CD.  Ami was cool and friendly as can be, and he's super talented!

Be sure to check him out: 

Hope you enjoyed the Union Station pics!  10 points to whoever can name a movie or TV show filmed here!

Happy 2011....

Hello everyone!

Hope everyone's had an awesome 2011 so far!  I know, I know, I haven't been posting lately.  I don't know why, really...I just know that I've been feeling so...just...blah...lately, a serious case of doggie-ennui.  It started with all the rainy weather gettin' me down (I'm an LA girl through and through and can't handle precipitation).  Maybe it's also because another year passing has gotten me thinking of my own mortality.  Chis only live an average of 12 years and I hate to think my best years are behind me.  Maybe it's all downhill from here (shudder!).  Also, it's tough being the big sis--having to worry about everyone else all the time.  Chairman Meow's been sick, Davis is going through her rebellious teenage phase, and we're fostering a new kitty, Binx (pics coming soon, he is aDORable!)  I'm starting to snap out of it, though, so stay tuned for some fun posts.  Here's to a happy year to come!  Cheers!
