if you love owls

if you love owls you need to head to target now! nick and nora came out with the cutest owl print pjs. i couldn't find a pic online of the pink adult version like i bought but here is the kids blue set.

target online only has the adult owl pants. but in the store they had the little cami/capri set that i bought, the pants, a pj length tshirt and all over print pants with a pink t. i could not decide which set to get! and i was even thinking i might buy a set to cut up and make a sewn bag from because the fabric is SO frickin cute. i love that the print is really big.

in other owl news, i was sitting on my deck enjoying the sunset and freak lightning storm this evening when an owl swooped by and perched in a near by tree. i admit the size freaked me out a little and i hurried my cats inside for fear it would try to come for them (i know that is completely irrational but birds freak me out). later in the evening after the owl left bats started to fly around and usually if they are far i am ok but they were getting a little too close to my deck so we headed inside. i don't know where my fear of flying critters comes from but i was really freaked out tonight (although also in awe of the owl).

hey mom remember this?

the poster that adorned my bedroom door back in the early eighties. the internets dates this poster as 1983. that means i was 8 when i was a big mj fan. beat it was my favorite video ever. although i admit that i was not a fan of him in later years he was a big part of my childhood. memories i didn't even know i had surfaced over the past week and it's been really nostalgic. seeing the image of this poster flash on cnn brought back visions of my old bedroom and jumping up and down in front of the tv waiting for the premiere of the thriller video in my parents rec room. he was most definitely a childhood icon for me. rip.
