Last week we had to say goodbye to our sweet Tali bear, the best friend and shadow ever. We adopted Tali in 2010, when we were still newlyweds living in MS. She traveled the country from MS to CA to TN and was the sweetest, most patient cat her entire life. Especially after Amelia arrived,… Continue reading Meow Monday: Miss Tali
Introducing Derby D.! This weekend we met Sam’s grandparents halfway between TN and MS to pick up a new friend to join the family. Amelia was very excited to meet Derby, and kept peering into his carrier and jabbering excitedly. So far Derby has been shy and sleepy during the day, but his nocturnal nature… Continue reading Meow Monday: Meet Derby
Cora the Cat has been part of my life (and this blog!) since 2009, and sadly we had to say goodbye on Saturday night. Since bringing her to our newlywed home from the humane society as a wee kitten to moving across the country from MS to CA, then CA to TN, she’s been a… Continue reading Meow Monday: Miss Cora
We had a taste of winter last week with a few flurries, then a couple inches of snow this week… it doesn’t take much to get excited around here! Amelia was fascinated by the individual snowflakes falling from the sky, and kept trying to pick them up. Eventually she got tired of the cold and… Continue reading Snow Day!
The cats don’t make it to the blog nearly as often as they used to, but I had to put together a special edition of Meow Monday for their latest adventure: modeling! They were featured in the “Precious Pets” column of our neighborhood magazine and I got a kick out of seeing them in print.… Continue reading Meow Monday: Precious Pets
Happy Labor Day! I am just getting back home from a week visiting my parents with Amelia,and today we’re planning on resting up before my parents go back to Alabama tomorrow. Last night we got together with my aunt and uncle who are in town. Amelia loved the company and refused to go to sleep… Continue reading Meow Monday: Happy Labor Day!
It’s been a while since we’ve checked in with the kit cats! Amelia tends to steal the show around here, and the amount of photos on my camera roll that feature the cats have dwindled. But as Amelia gets more mobile, she’s interacting with the cats more and more, and of course it’s super cute!… Continue reading Meow Monday: A Baby’s Best Friend
Cats (and babies, hopefully) don’t care if their home is Pinterest-worthy, which is a good thing, because we still have plenty of blank walls waiting for art or furniture, and we’re keeping all the baby furniture in our master bedroom for the first few months so we don’t have an official nursery set up. From… Continue reading Meow Monday: Nursery Tour
Happy Labor Day! Most years we are either going on a trip or gearing up for a trip over the long weekend. This year, I guess you could say our journey is happening a lot closer to home, but there’s still plenty to do to prepare for it 🙂 I’ve been organizing papers, kitchen cabinets,… Continue reading Meow Monday: Happy Labor Day!
We just got back from our trip to New York City yesterday, and I wish we had a couple more days to explore! The last time we were in NYC was in 2009, when we spent a couple days on either side of our honeymoon cruise to Canada. So it seemed appropriate for today’s Throwback… Continue reading #TBT: New York City
