Friday Favorites: My Boyfriend
(Still life with cat)
Tomorrow is my wonderful boyfriend's 33rd birthday! I'll be taking off from blogging tomorrow, so today's post is dedicated to him.
We met almost four years ago and became romantically involved by chance. A little something I (and Hollywood) like to call a "meet cute." I was a journalism major and had to interview a writer I liked, admired, read, etc. Kurt Loder from MTV never answered me, so I requested an interview with this guy who, at the time, wrote an amazing weekly column in a local paper. He agreed. I primped beforehand, knowing he was young and, from his header photo, his mouth looked cute (that's all you could see).
When I met him, I found out that he was knee-bucklingly handsome and frankly, the interview was stilted because of my anxiety. I thought he hated me (I assumed aloofness where shyness actually dwelt). Later, I had to follow up with a few more questions via e-mail and we resumed a conversation about the film Lost in Translation. He, fortunately, mistook my polite chitchat as a hint and asked me out on a date. The rest, as they say, is history. Now we've got two precious cats and a lot of life to live together. Thanks, baby, for making these years so great!

He collects sneakers, Nike Dunks to be precise, so today's (short--blogger cuts me off when the posts get too big!) post is in tribute to my love and his collection:
Crocodile Stars Nike Dunk hi (I call these the Disney shoes cause they look straight outta Fantasia. There's a lot of purple, but I'm not sure if you can see it here.)
Amethyst and agate ring, 'Bright Peace' $282.85
Send Help Nike Dunk Hi (These are pretty cool sneakers even to a person who rates sneakers a 4-ish on her most interesting things list. They are apparently highly collectible as well.)
Custom Necklace (made for me by the jeweler I've collaborated with before)
Be True to Your School Nike Hi Dunks (He wears these all the time. 50 billion pairs of sneakers and these get action every day!)
Diamond and Sapphire Earrings, $2200
