Kitty paws and musicals




What I'm Wearing:
Shirt: Jenna and Jessie (TJ Maxx)  |  Jeans:  Grane |  Necklace:  Maurice's 
Sunglasses: Gift from mom   |  Shoes: Dr. Scholl's (DSW)

Today I'm rocking my new necklace from Maurices.  Also, I've discovered that my camera and I do NOT get along outside; most of these photos came out way too bright.  Sigh.


I have a confession to make...I have a fetish.  Not just any fetish...a CAT PAW fetish!  Seriously, is there anything cuter than cat paws?  And I'll let you in on a little random factoid: cats sweat through their paw pads!  They do this both when they're warm (and need to cool down), AND when they're nervous.  Just like when you or I get sweaty palms when we're nervous about something, cats get sweaty palms too!  Isn't that adorable?

GAH!! Too cute!!!

In other news, today I discovered that Stephen Moyer (of True Blood fame) can sing.  He has been chosen to perform opposite Carrie Underwood in the live NBC broadcast of "The Sound of Music" as none other than Captain von Trapp.  Originally I was worried, until I found these gems from Stephen's run as Billy Flynn in Chicago last month:

By the way, he was part of a cast that included Ashlee Simpson (as Roxy), Samantha Barks (as Velma), Drew Carey (as Amos), and Lucy Lawless (XEEEEEEENA!  Ahem. I mean, as Mama Morton).  Ordinarily I'd be annoyed by Hollywood names in musicals like Chicago, but this?  This I would see.

I have to admit though, I am a little worried about Carrie Underwood playing Maria in "The Sound of Music".  Girl can sing, but hopefully she can leave the country twang out of Do-Re-Me.  What do you think?
