Valentine’s Day Treat Bag Printable

I love Valentine's Day. I think it is safe to say that I love Valentine's Day even more now that I have children in school. The V-Day crafts and parties are really exciting. Although I'm not there to celebrate the day at school, Gaia and I get to plan out treats for her class each year together. This year she tried to go all boring mode on me. When I asked what she'd like to take to her friends for Valentine's Day she said she wanted "kitty cat cards and Tootsie Rolls." Um... okay? So I utilized my excellent tracing skills, scanner, and a tiny bit of digital design knowledge and came up with this: Totally adorable, right?! I am quite … [Read more...]

Today Was A Good Day.

I love me some Ice Cube. I honestly dig everything he does from his music to his acting career. I was so excited to find out that his original "good day" was discovered using some mad research skills. Although Ice Cube only responded with "Nice try," I'm going to mark January 20th in my calendar as the anniversary of Ice Cube's fantastic voyage through the gangsta life. "Today Was A Good Day" was originally released in February of 1993 off of Ice Cube's third solo album, The Predator. The song has been featured in the top 10 on the infamous Billboard charts, is number 77 on VH1's Top 100 Songs of the 90's, and is included in the Grand Theft … [Read more...]

We’re now officially part of #ClubFreshStep!

Disclaimer: I am a member of the Collective Bias® Social Fabric® Community. I was compensated for this post, however all thoughts and opinions are my own. I shall not tell lies! It's been a while since I talked about my kitties. I admit that my love for my fur babies fades for a brief period in time when I have a new baby in the house. They shed, they invade my space, and they have this box of litter to remind me of how gross having cats can be. I have been trying to move past that as a mom for the second time, and thanks to the new and improved formula for Fresh Step Odor Shield I can move past the gross factor and concentrate on my love … [Read more...]

You Need More Cats

I've been promising a cat update for a while now. I must admit that although they are still cute as ever, I haven't had much motivation to grab my camera and ruin some delicate moments. If you're a cat lover you must realize how as soon as you grab the camera the cute vanishes. I admire those who can snap thousands of adorable fluffy photos of their feline friends. I am a failure in that way. First up is Tonks. She's all pregnant (more on that later) and lazy so this is the most cute I can get these days: Tonks is a very fickle cat. She's super lovey, but only if she gets to choose where to snuggle. You can't pick her up or move her or … [Read more...]

Le Photo Dump – Kitten Time!

I love Tonks. She always snuggles me when I'm on the computer. The other night I was playing video games and she was hugging me giving me kisses. These photos are old, but Tonks is practically the same size where as Herby (the orange kitty) is a big manly cat now. … [Read more...]

[Almost] Wordless Wednesday #18

I've always been a fan of the family bed. I never purchased a crib, you know. Gaia has always slept next to me as a baby. It wasn't until she was 3 that I transitioned her to her own bed. She slept in my room in a twin for 6 months, then I moved her into her room. She comes in and snuggles every morning and when we wake up everyone is happy. I love waking up to all my sleepy babies. Forgive the unmade bed. We did just wake up, but even so it doesn't get made. They say if you make your bed your room feels clean. Well, my room is clean except for the bed and I feel just fine. Thank you. Beds should be able to just climb in at any moment and … [Read more...]

[Almost] Wordless Wednesday #15

I'm so excited to have this photo! I keep talking about how adorable Tonks is with her coloring, and now that she doesn't run every time you get within 3 feet I can actually show you! Hutch was photographing my lecture to Miss Gaia... We need a bakery so Gaia can be our adorable mascot. Balloon animal from Chili's? Pikachu, I choose you!   … [Read more...]

[Almost] Wordless Wednesday #13

I don't even know what's going on here... These are some glass animals I inherited from my grandmother. I need to doctor the display case so some of them can fit properly. My baby girl and her baby kitten. <3 Gray and pink zebra nails for the first half of the week. :) I won some stickers from Print Runner and I turned them into address labels. They're adorable, right? … [Read more...]

[Almost] Wordless Wednesday #12

First time using the tripod. I am gross from rearranging stuff. Shhh. The hand made labels for the lactation cookie giveaway. Kitties! Failed photo sesh with my nails. Thought it was coolish looking. Now yours for WW. My mailboxes have no distinctive marks. I now have a sticker on mine. :)   … [Read more...]

More Kitten Pictures!

Round three of our U-haul adventure happened yesterday. My ex wasn't able to fit all the things into our first U-haul from Orlando so he had to get another. I finally got Gaia's bed and my shelves... only the hardware is still in Orlando so I won't actually get anything more done until Friday. I am annoyed, to say the least, but what can I do? My interview Friday at Olive Garden went great. She has to check my references. Assuming that they all check out I'm pretty sure I got the job. I have to wait til Wednesday to know for sure. Tomorrow I'm going to apply at IHOP and maybe find the Massage Envy. I'd hate to waste time waiting and then not … [Read more...]
