My ‘children’

14 01 2011

We don’t have kids. Yet. In fact, we’re not even sure we want kids. But that’s a discussion for another day.

What we do have is 2 wonderful lovely kittehs. Want to meet them? Of course you do.

Here’s kitteh #1. Mr. Cat.

We adopted Mr. Cat shortly after we moved to Iowa. He’s almost 6 years old!

Kitteh # 2 is named Cobra Commander. Cobes for short. Cobes was given to us by a co-worker of mine. She had found him abandoned in her yard. His eyes were barely starting to open. She nursed him back to health but because she was severely allergic to him she couldn’t keep him. So she showed me a picture of him and then of course I had to have him. ha ha.

Anyone who knows me knows I love cats. Like seriously love them. I can hardly go into Petsmart to buy cat food without wanting to bring home another cat. It’s tough. Someday I’ll have a house big enough to take care of a ton of cats. I’ll be the crazy cat lady. Except I won’t be single. And I’m not really crazy. I just love cats.

Maybe I am crazy since I just wrote a whole post on cats.

Fail Blog

14 12 2010

So I kinda suck at this blogging at least twice a week thing… Oops. Oh well. I’m not a pro blogger and hey, sometimes after a long hard day at work in front of the computer the last thing I want to do is come home and sit in front of the computer and type out a blog post. (for some reason work bans sites… not sure why)

So here I am. My birthday has come and gone. Officially I’m 28 now. But I choose to only be 25. I don’t really want to get older. My life isn’t really at the point that I thought it would/should be at the age of 28 so for now I’m staying 25. So what.


Cute cat pictures help me smile when I’m having a down day.

Husband and I are *finally* going to do some real snowboarding over Christmas break. (no, we aren’t teachers but we do get a Christmas break… sweeeeet) We’re driving to Colorado, meeting up with a couple friends, renting a townhouse and snowboarding at Loveland Ski Area. I can’t wait. It’s going to be awesome.

This is a random post but I just saw the trailer for the new Transformers movie and it’s going to be good. The trailer doesn’t show much but it’s okay.

Well I’m going to get a little bit of reading in before bed. Hope you all are doing well.

Weekend recap

28 11 2010

Did you all have a good Thanksgiving? I took Monday-Wednesday off so I had the whole week off work. Let me tell you. It was greatly needed. I thought I’d link up to a few posts that I enjoyed from my Google Reader.

Running a cat ranch like this would be my dream job.

I love brussel sprouts. I’m going to need to try this recipe ASAP.

If you’re looking for an awesome craft/cooking/wonderful blog, go visit Sandy a la Mode.

Another recipe I need to try soon. With recipes like this no wonder I’m gaining weight.

Unfortunately it’s back to work tomorrow. I’m sure not ready. Husband and I have been looking for jobs in the Seattle or Portland area. If you’ve got connections, let me know! I need to get closer to my family. Oh and my birthday is this Friday. Husband is going to take me to dinner. I can’t wait. :D

I feel old

20 11 2010

So the husband and I went to see Harry Potter after work yesterday. It was great! I couldn’t keep husband from talking the entire time about how they did things different from the book. It was pretty funny actually. He kept getting so upset. But I loved the movie. I know it’s not as good as the book. But it’s still good for a movie. I can’t wait till Part 2.

Anyway after the movie we got some dinner and then came home. We were going to watch a movie but ended up falling asleep a little after 10pm. lol. I can’t remember the last time I went to sleep at 10 on a weekend night. But I was sooo tired. I worked last weekend so I haven’t got to sleep in for quite awhile.

I’m taking all next week off from work. I’m so excited. My brain needs a little bit of a break. Later today I’m getting together with a friend and we’re going to cook up some stuff for dinner for our husband/boyfriend/friends. It’ll be fun. We get together every once in awhile and cook up some foods.

Hope you guys have a good Saturday!

A Royal Engagement

16 11 2010

I can’t look at the Internet without seeing another article about Prince William’s engagement.

Actually I think it’s sweet. They make a cute couple. And I’m a romantic at heart. They’ve been together like what, 10 years? That’s longer than my husband and I have been together. I can’t wait to see pics of the wedding!

Here goes nothing

15 11 2010

I’m going to try and get into this whole blogging thing. I love reading blogs. My Google reader is constantly overflowing with new things to read.

I’m not really sure how to have a successful blog. I don’t think I know enough about any one subject to have a dedicated blog. So, if you’ll tag along with me I think I’ll blog about anything and everything. I may talk about an article I read on Yahoo or a recipe I saw on another blog. I may tell you how frustrated I am about something. I’ll try to tell you about my hopes and dreams.

For now, my goal will be to blog twice a week. Join me, won’t you?
