Mimi’s Super Bowl Adventure, Part 4 – A Photo Story

1 Feb


Happy Super Bowl Sunday, my lovely readers! I’m not a big football fan myself, (I’m watching Downton Abbey as I write this post. :) ) but I always look forward to Mimi’s Superbowl Adventure photo story every year. (You can read the last three years’ posts here, here, and here.) And so, without further ado, I’ll hand it over to everyone’s favorite kitty, Mimi!

Mimi's PlanHello everyone! It’s moi, Mimi! As I do every February, I went on an epic Super Bowl adventure with my best friend Lavender, and I’m here to tell you all about it! Enjoy!

“Ooh! It’s Super Bowl Sunday! Better call Lavender,” I said this morning, happily jumping into my favorite chair.

Mimi Talks with Lavender“Hey Mimi, what’s up?” My best friend Lavender greeted me cheerfully when she walked into the room a few minutes later. “I have a brilliant idea!” I answered back. Lavender groaned. “It’s Super Bowl Sunday, isn’t it?” I nodded and made room for her on the chair. “And you know what everyone’s favorite part of the Super Bowl is? The commercials! And this year, we’re going to star in them with all our friends! Onward!”

Take 1“Oreo and Juliet’s Baked Goods Commercial: Take 1!” Princess Minnie called out in the film studio when we arrived. “Look it’s Juliet!” I said happily. My pink elephant friend gave us a small smile and wave before turing towards the camera.

Juliet and Cupcake“Oreo and Juliet’s Baked Goods has all sorts of yummy treats! They’re perfect for Valentine’s Day, parties, or any time you’re craving a bit of chocolate. Your sweet tooth is sure to be-“

Mimi Crashes 1 “Hi Juliet!” I burst in. “Hi Mimi!” She answered, tilting her head back so she could see me. “How’s it going?” “Great!” I answered, “See you at next week’s art class!”

Lavender Says Hi “Super Bowl adventure?” Juliet asked my buddy Lavender. She nodded before running off to join moi. “Great cupcakes Juliet!”

Minnie 2“Purple Panda Books Commercial: Take 2!” Princess Minnie called out in the next film studio when we arrived. “HI ELSIE!” I waved ecstatically at my sparkly friend. She gave me a wink before beginning her commercial monologue.

Elsie“Do you love reading? How about purple? How about pandas? If you do, Purple Panda Books is just the store for you! Come to our lovely store and discover shelves filled with loads of purple books and read to your heart’s content. You’ll be falling head over heels for these stories in no-“

Mimi Crashes 2“Hi Elsie! Nice work! Can I borrow one of these books?” I asked my awesome friend. “Sure Mimi! I just have to do one more take.” I shrugged, “That’s cool! I’ll see you at tomorrow’s book club meeting!”

Lavender Explains“Is this one of those Super Bowl adventures you told me about earlier?” Elsie asked Lavender, who nodded. “Awesome!” Elsie added.

Minnie Take Three“Dot-lightful Clothing Commercial: Take 4!” Princess Minnie called out in the third film studio when we arrived. “There’s Dottie!” I told Lavender, dragging her towards the set.

Dottie“Dot-lightful Clothing sells apparel with fun colors and prints that are sure to brighten up your day. Our styles can be purchased in one of our three locations across the-“

Mimi Crashes 3“Hi Mimi!” Dottie said without even taking her eyes of the camera. “Hows the Super Bowl adventure going?” “Fabulous! Thanks for letting me be in one of your commercial takes. See you at the Sparkle Lovers Convention on Tuesday!”

Lavender Explains“Oh. You were expecting us?” Lavender asked Dottie.

Mimi Begins Planning “So. What should we do next year?” I asked once we were back in my fabulously pink bedroom.

The End :)

Have a great night,




Mimi In Hutch!

7 Jun


So sorry for not posting lately, but I have lots of fun posts coming up! Today I just wanted to do a quick post starring everyone’s favorite kitten, Mimi! This one has an extra special surprise in it, but I’ll let Mimi explain… (Apologies for the quality of the first few photos–they were taken during the evening when the lighting wasn’t very good!)

Bookstore 1Hi everyone, it’s Mimi! On Wednesday evening, Lulu took me to this bookstore called the Blue Bunny where they were having a publication party for Hutch magazine. When Lulu had me pose with her copy of my magazine, I was so surprised to see her artwork on the cover!

Bookstore 2I got a chance to explore the bookstore and have Lulu take pictures of me! Here I am posing with the adorable bunny! Aren’t we so cute?

Bookstore 3Ooh, this is my favorite one! Here I am riding the coolest tiara wearing, hula dancing lamb ever!

Mimi and HutchYesterday I got a chance to look through the whole thing: “Oh my gosh! There is a monkey. This is awesome!” I squealed as I looked at the cover.

Article 1And then, the very best part came. When I was flipping through pages, I discovered a brand new photo story about me and my eco-spa right there on page 24. “This is so cool!” I flopped down so I could read my latest adventure.

Article 2“I really have to see how this ends!” :)

Have an awesome weekend,

Lulu and Mimi :)

P.S. I’m going to be doing some work on the blog design this weekend, so just be aware in case the appearance keeps changing.

Mimi’s Easter Egg Hunt-A Photo Story

21 Apr


Happy Easter everyone! I had my annual Easter egg hunt on Friday, and today I went with my family to see Mr. Peabody and Sherman again, (plus I got the Cedar Wood Ever After High Doll! She’s adorable:)) Mimi had a wonderful Easter too, and invited three of her friends over to hunt some eggs…

IMG_3688Mimi’s friends Priscilla the Pig, Quacky the Ladybug, and Rosebud the Bunny were all gathered in her backyard, ready to start their egg hunt. Everyone grabbed their brightly colored baskets and stood together in a line as Mimi announced, “One…two…three!” And the friends sprinted off!

IMG_3693Pastel colored eggs were scattered throughout the sunny yard, and Mimi immediately spotted one sitting on the tree swing. With a tall jump, she grabbed the edge of the turquoise seat, and pulled herself on. “Perfect!” Mimi said happily, adding the blue egg to her daisy-covered basket.

IMG_3699As Mimi hopped off the swing, Priscilla was busy reaching into the long white pipe to grab her next egg. “Almost got it…” She groaned as it rolled away from her grasp. “Got it!”

IMG_3700Rosebud had spotted an egg sitting in the branch of a tall tree, and had hopped her way up to it. With a final little jump, she knocked it right into her overflowing yellow basket.

IMG_3714Almost all the eggs were gone, but Quacky noticed one more nestled in the cracks of stone on Mimi’s patio. “I wonder what’s inside…” Quacky wondered, plopping it in to the silver basket.

IMG_3722And then there was only one egg left…but it was stuck at the top of the fence! Agreeing to share whatever treat was inside, Rosebud gave Mimi a boost so she grab it. After throwing the egg down to Quacky and Rosebud, who were still on the ground, Mimi discovered she couldn’t find a way to get down! “Oh no…”

IMG_3735Luckily, the three others were able to grab a soft pillow from inside that Mimi could fall on, convincing her to jump. Since there were no eggs left, the friends sat down on the grass and began to look through their baskets. Hidden under a chocolate bunny, Mimi noticed an unopened egg with something special inside…

IMG_3738A hot pink collar with a charm of herself on it! “This has been an extra awesome Easter!” She declared, trying on her new piece of jewelry.

How was your Easter?

Mimi and the Scavenger Hunt-A Photo Story

7 Apr


It’s springtime! There have been some warmer days lately, and there was plenty of sunshine this weekend, so to celebrate I decided to do a Mimi photo story! This week, Mimi and her friends went on a scavenger hunt…


IMG_2972“Is everyone with their teams?” Mimi asked when they ensembles on the grass. The six friends had split up into two teams of three: The Pink Bows with Mimi, Willow the Lamb, and Harold the Unicorn, and the Springtime Snuggles with Daisy Lou, Emma, and Sir Pugs A Lot. “Okay!” Mimi announced, ready to read the rules a loud. “There are five locations with clues and prizes! There are two clues at each spot, so only take the one for your team. Whoever gets to the final destination first wins!”

IMG_2988With that they all scrambled off to read the first clue with their teams. “Here’s the clue” Mimi handed a folded piece of paper to Willow, who read aloud. “You’ll find the next clue where the crown on the frog’s head sits.” The three stood there puzzled for a moment until Harold called out, “The frog prince garden statue!”

IMG_2996Daisy Lou’s team was already there, and Sir Pugs A Lot had grabbed one of the two papers hidden beneath the metal crown. “It says that the next clue is in the empty pit–what pit?” He wondered, as his teammates shrugged and started looking around.

IMG_2998Mimi’s team had worked out the clue and where sitting on top of the fire pit…well two of them. “Did you find it yet?” Mimi called down to Harold, who was searching the ground. “Uh-huh!” He yelled back, “It reads, ‘Your next clue is hidden among the grapes.” Mimi and Willow started pacing back and forth. “Umm, guys? How am I going to get back up?” Harold shouted.

IMG_3000Emma had figured out the clue was hidden in the grape-vine, but since there were no grapes yet, the clue was tucked between two high branches. The three started climbing loose vines in order to reach their paper. “Almost got it!” Emma exclaimed, reaching her hove out. “It says, “Climb the fence to spot the final clue…”

IMG_3005Minutes later, everyone was climbing the old fence in order to reach the final clue, which was in the middle of a bare bush. Harold the Unicorn was able to grab one of the papers, but the other flew flying away in the wind. “Oh no!” Mimi said, “Why don’t you just read it out loud, and then we’ll race to the prize!” Everybody agreed, so Harold opened the paper. “The prize is under the shower of flowers,” it read.

IMG_3019Suddenly it was a speeding foot race to the old watering can that had flowers in the top. Mimi managed to arrive first, and still breathing heavily, she was greeted with a full platter of delicious looking cupcakes. “Congrats!” The sign read, “You found the prize, and don’t forget to share.” Mimi nodded, and announced “Perfect!”

IMG_3015So the six friends spent the rest of the afternoon enjoying their yummy sweets and playing in the bright sun shine!

Happy Spring!

Mimi’s Super Bowl Adventure, Part 3-A Photo Story

2 Feb


As some of you know, every year, I do a Super Bowl themed photo story with Mimi, (you can read the first two here and here,) and Mimi started the tradition of telling them herself last year, so here’s Mimi’s Superbowl Adventure #3 told by Mimi herself…IMG_1352Hello everyone! it’s your favorite cat, me, Mimi! Anyways, last week I was sitting in my favorite chair enjoying a delicious lunch I made for myself, (but that’s a totally different photo story) when the phone started ringing and interrupting my relaxation. (Sigh…)

IMG_1354So I got up from my chair and went to answer the phone, and was surprised to find out that it was one of the Minnie’s, (although I’m not one hundred percent sure which) an announcer at the Supreme Bowl (the stuffed animal equivalent of the Super Bowl.) Our conversation went a little something like this:

“Hello?” “Is this Mimi, the same Mimi that accidentally broke into the Supreme Bowl football field last year?” “Yep!” I nodded my head as I answered. “Alright then, apparently everyone was impressed by you not knowingly winning the Supreme Bowl, and they want you to perform at the half time show.” “Really?!” I exclaimed before accidentally dropping the phone.

IMG_1357“This is awesome!” I said as I jumped up and down, “I wonder if Lavender wants to do it too…” I ran out the door to go find my friend.

IMG_1359After I told Lavender about the half-time show, she couldn’t wait to do it with me, so we went back to my room to brainstorm ideas of what we should perform. “I could accidentally pass by everyone in hide-and-go-seek like before!” I suggested, but Lavender immediately shook her head. “Ooh! Or I could give everyone hair styles like that time when I opened up my own salon!” I still think it was a brilliant idea, but Lavender didn’t. “There’s way too many people, and I don’t think they want a hair style from you…no offense.” I shrugged, and stroked my chin, hoping it would give me a good idea, (it didn’t.) “Oh! I know!” Lavender said suddenly, “Remember when we pretended to be trapeze artists in your backyard? Let’s do that again!”

IMG_1364Since we finally had an idea, Lavender and I were going to go outside to practice, but I had to come back to grab my delicious smoothie! As I was running back, I came up with an idea, “Hey Lavender we should have matching outfits!”

IMG_1371So, at the Supreme Bowl, the game was getting intense…but no one cares about that because it was time for everyone to see how amazing our trapeze act is! “The score is tied, but for now we’ll be taking a break to watch the half time show…starring that cat that lost all of her popcorn on the field last year and her purple dog friend!” French Minnie announced into her microphone. “Take it away Mimi and Lavender!” Princess Minnie added.

IMG_1381We had exactly a minute before we had to start our awesome act. “Okay Lavender, let’s do this!” I encouraged her. “I’m a bit nervous…do you think we used too much pink in our costumes?” “Uh…duh, there is no thing as too much pink! Anyways, we have to get going!”

IMG_1389The half-time show started off with Lavender flying in on her harness. the crowed cheered and looked in awe. She swished through the air, performing tricks and flips with ease.

IMG_1392And then I came in! I was holding onto the string-thingie upside down! How cool is that!? I mean, I may have been screaming my head off at the time, but it was pretty cool!

IMG_1395So after a few more spins, tricks, flips, and a bit-of almost falling, the half-time show came to an end. When we did our final trick, the crowd applauded wildly!

IMG_1400Together, Lavender and I flipped down and gave each other a hug:) The End!

I hope you enjoyed Mimi’s latest adventure!

Mimi’s Birthday Party!-A Photo Story

21 Jan


Guess what?! Last Tuesday was Mimi’s birthday! To celebrate Mimi turning four, I decided to have a photo story birthday party  for her just like I did last year. I got some adorable photos that I can’t wait to share with you, so…

IMG_4378Mimi can’t wait for her party to begin! She had been setting up all morning. (She had such a tough time getting that banner up!)

IMG_4381She even made party hats! I guess she should have measured first though (they’re a bit too large)…Oh well!

IMG_4384Mimi skipped over to the snack table, making sure everything was ready before her guests arrived. She had made cupcakes the night before and spent all yesterday afternoon frosting the cake! The balloons even match the color palette of the food:)

IMG_4387“Ooh! That’s my balloon!” Mimi exclaimed when she noticed a random red balloon floating around. She grabbed it, and stuck it under her paw just as she heard the doorbell ring. “Those are my guests!” Mimi said as she ran to answer the door.

IMG_4393“Happy Birthday Mimi!” Lavender and Fifi each gave Mimi a big hug, and handed her their gifts. “I’m so glad you guys could come! We’re going to play all sorts of games, and have pizza and cupcakes, and open presents, and-” Suddenly, the doorbell rang again, and Mimi rushed to greet her friends.

IMG_4395It was Willow and Dottie. “Hi!” Mimi said excitedly. “Hi Mimi!” The two friends answered at the same time.”Okay, we just have to wait until everyone else gets here, and then we’ll start the games!”

IMG_4402Once all of Mimi’s friends had arrived, they came into the room and Mimi made an announcement, “Okay! First we’re going to play some games, and then we’ll eat pizza and desert, and then finally we’ll open presents.”

IMG_4405Mimi’s favorite game of the party was Pin the Bow on the Mimi. They even found a use for her too big party hats; they could acts blindfolds. “Alright…one…two…three…”  Her friends chanted as Lavender spun her in a circle, “Go!” Unsteadily Mimi wobbled to the photo, and after a few moments of feeling around, she taped her bow to the wall.

IMG_4408“So how did I do?” Mimi asked Lavender when she hat taken the blindfold/hat off. “Well…” Lavender replied, ” Just look.” She pointed to the wall.

IMG_4412Somehow Mimi had gotten the bow all the way up near the ceiling. “We’re still trying to figure out how you managed to get it up there!” Mimi shrugged, and said, “So what I’m hearing is that although I didn’t win…I didn’t lose!”

IMG_4417After a few more party games, it was time to eat! Mimi went over to the food table and grabbed a slice of pizza, a cupcake, and one white chocolate covered pretzel. “So are you having fun?” She asked Juliet the Elephant who nodded eagerly in-between bites of frosting.

IMG_4418And then it was time for Mimi’s most favorite part of all…presents! She sat on the floor happily as her friends grabbed their gifts.

IMG_4420First Dottie, Stella, Willow, and Juliet gave her a board game. “We combined all of money to get you it!” Stella said proudly. Mimi gave each of them a big hug and thanked them again and again.

IMG_4422“I got you this,” Fifi told her, handing Mimi the most adorable and fluffy pink teddy bear. “It’s oh so cute!” Mimi hugged the stuffed animal.

IMG_4424“When I got back from my vacation this summer, I heard about your adventures in being a hair stylist, and so I got you some pretty ribbons in you favorite color so you can practice on yourself!” Lavender told her best buddy, giving her the package. Mimi’s eyes widened, “They go perfectly with my ears!”

IMG_4427“Thanks everyone!” Mimi told all of her guests, “This was the best birthday party I’ve ever had!”

The End:)

Isn’t Mimi adorable!?


Mimi and Dottie Play in the Snow-A Photo Story

3 Jan


Today is a snow day for me, so it makes perfect sense for me to post this photo story of Mimi and Dottie the unicorn (who I got for Christmas, isn’t she adorable?) playing outside in the snow…

IMG_4138Today Mimi and her new friend Dottie are playing in Mimi’s backyard. “Hi Dottie! Ready to play in the snow?” Mimi asked eagerly. Dottie nodded up and down, and the two friends went to grab their sled.

IMG_4140“Okay, I’ll steer, and we’ll go down that big hill!” Mimi pointed to a towering pile of freezing cold snow. “That seems pretty high, are you sure you can keep us from falling off?” Dottie asked nervously. “Of course I can!” Mimi answered optimistically.

IMG_4142The two friends pushed the sled to the to of the hill, and jumped on. “Ready, set, go!” Mimi yelled as they flew down the snow pile.

IMG_4146Suddenly, the sled came crashing down with no control. As they landed on the flat ground, Dottie fell off the sled into the snow. “Dottie! Dottie! Are you okay?” Mimi cried as she jumped off to help her friend.

IMG_4148Dottie got up excitedly, “That was so much fun! Let’s do it again!” Mimi shrugged, and they brought the sled back to the hill.

IMG_4150After Mimi and Dottie went sledding, they decided to try out ice skating. “Mimi? Why do you only have two skates?” Dottie asked as her friend wobbled onto the ice. “I couldn’t find the other two, but I’ll be fine!” Mimi replied optimistically.

IMG_4152Spreading her arms out, Mimi started to glide on the ice, and was only a little unsteady. Feeling confident, Mimi skated away from the edge of the ice and into the middle…

IMG_4153until she immediately fell down! “You did awesome Mimi!” Dottie exclaimed. “That was pretty great for only two skates!”

IMG_4154“Here, why don’t you try,” Mimi told Dottie, handing her skates over to her friend. She laced them up and slipped them on before going onto the ice.

IMG_4155“Ta-da!” Dottie announced as she successfully skated around the ice. After a couple laps around the rink she joined Mimi who had been watching in awe.

IMG_4156Once Dottie had gotten the skates off, Mimi announced “I’m kind of hungry, why don’t I go get us some snacks?” Mimi said to Dottie before she ran back to the house.

IMG_4159“Here we go!” Mimi returned a few minutes later, pushing two ice cream sundaes with spoons. “Mimi! You do know it’s winter right?” Dottie asked, confused. Mimi smiled, “Well, then they won’t melt!” Smiling she dug into her ice cream, and so did Dottie.

IMG_4161The End:)
