How Catty!



I'll start this post off with wishing a very special Joyeux Anniversaire to Aurélien! We had a lovely birthday celebration weekend filled with champagne, cupcakes from Williston Park's Cupcake Contessa, friends and family, a homemade dinner prepared by me which consisted of pre-made appetizers from the supermarket (my gift was to not cook), and an extra special surprise to him from me which I'll share with you in a bit. 

Per usual, an element of drama managed to creep in. The weekend was absolutely perfect until...


...I found THIS in his drawer.
 A homemade red-light district inspired card by another woman who addresses my boyfriend as sir. I guess nothing or no one is 100%..
I'm so disappointed...

Before I let myself jump to conclusions, and start the crisis of Summer 2012, let's just see who it's from...

Who could it be? Who could it be?



Quelle Salope! I'm being Soon Yi'd by my cat Charlotte. As it turns out, the sneaky little minx sent this over to him last week to be the first to wish him a happy birthday! I not only gave this Jezebel a happy home but rescued her from her previous owners that posted in their Craigslist ad that if someone didn't adopt her that day, they would dump her at the Nathan's Hot Dog Parking lot on Old Country Road and drive away. 

This is the thanks I get! A boudoir photo of her peeking out from under a little blanket surrounded by farfalle pasta, and signed it Charlotte "Forever", an obvious Serge Gainsbourg reference that she knew Séb would appreciate. I knew something was up when she sat on his suitcase looking at him longingly before he left for Paris last April, or how she sunbathes spread eagle in the window letting the sun reflect off of her rich mink colored highlights whenever he is in my mother's kitchen. I better watch out, she's good, and she's after my man.

Despite the betrayal from my furry femme fatale, we enjoyed Séb's birthday celebration that happened to get even more festive, if you can believe it. While we were already planning on going to New York this week, I surprised him with a Montauk getaway where it's now 90 degrees, sunny, blue skies, and la pièce de la résistance is that we're staying with the other half of my crazy Italian family where the senior members from that side and our side haven't spoken since the vendetta of '79. I'm not even joking...

It's about to get interesting in this little beach town...

What was going on a year ago today? This!

  1. Happy belated birthday, Seb! I'm only sorry that I wasn't able to slip a sappy card into your drawer à la Charlotte. Imagine how that would have freaked out Mlle Ella. Two woman (or a cat and a woman) after her man! ;)

    And Ella - what do you mean that you're in Montauk?! It seems that we're forever playing cross-the-ocean at different times. Talk about ships passing in the night.

    Have fun with your crazy Italian family. Does the vendetta of '79 have anything to do with pasta?

    1. She is too funny. She thinks that making the card all Italian will lure in my man. I'm hip to her game. : )

    1. WE LOVE MONTAUK! Isn't it so much cooler than the Hamptons? We never want to leave! We've extended our trip by a few days. Have fun out there! When, when, when will you be in Paris!? You should try to zip over when you're in London!

      Let's get a drink in the city next week if you're around!

      xo.

  7. Now you know why they wanted to dump her in a parking lot! No good deed goes unpunished. Just be glad she doesn't have a passport.

    1. We've been seeing signs for Block Island but so many people are out here, I don't think we're going to make it out to Block Island.

      Ahahahahah you really thought Seb was having an affair?! LOL!! I figured you all would have known I was joking around after the photo of the leopard print card! Glad I got you good!

      Thanks! WE LOVE THIS PLACE!!!!!!!!!! We're such Montauk posers..we're "locals" now.

  12. Charlotte is just adorable. I would not mind sharing my man with such a cutie! After all, I cannot purr as she would, and everyone needs a warm purring cat in the lap in winter.
    I loved the Soon Yi'd.
