Dogs and cats

I am about to overload your screen with freakishly cute pet photos all snapped within the last two weeks. If the amount of photos I have taken of my pets are any indication of how many I will take of future human dependents, I’m going to need some more storage on le iPhone, knowwhatiamsayin.

I definitely thought we’d still be in hardcore separation mode with the dog and cats only two weeks in, but we can now happily enjoy the same living space most of the time. However, Tory remains extremely interested in all cat behavior, especially when they sit quietly and ignore her. She likes to stick her face in their fur while they hiss and attempt to scratch her eyes out. Swatting her face appears to have little-to-no effect on her, in fact, I’m tempted to believe she actually enjoys it. I have diagnosed her with the typical youngest sister syndrome — she wants to play with her older sisters at all times. The cats have typical oldest sister syndrome in that they want nothing to do with her at all times.

The important thing, though, is that I no longer wake up in the night with nightmares of Tory devouring the cats as a midnight snack. Though, I did have a dream the other night that Casey and I were in the middle of a little kissing sesh and woke up to Tory licking my lips, so ya win some, ya lose some.

That tongue is something special, isn’t it?

“Bonding.”

“Staying as far away as possible.”

I do still make time for intense cat cuddling so they’re fully aware that this is still their house, and Tory’s just living in it…forever.

But I have also taken to carrying Tory around like a toddler.

And making her homemade snacks.

So on the way back from Fredericksburg we decided to stop at CAPs in Katy, because...I guess we wanted to be sad about all the animals who need homes? And also maybe we had a small desire to get a dog. As I've mentioned in previous posts (uhhh … Read more…

Hiking and fancy carrots

I apologize in advance for the amount of selfies in this post. It's very difficult to get tangible photographic evidence of your anniversary when you're hiking around in the wilderness-ish. The mutant and I meandered to Fredericksburg for a short … Read more…

Cat hair and little children

First some big news: WHAT A JOKE. Our friends Jordan and Andrew had a little tiny baby boy, and we are so so excited! Why he doesn't look at Lucy and Molly like that is beyond me. Speaking of the cats, they have been remarkably … Read more…

Pinterest successes and cooking (obvies)

I haven't posted my Pinterest kitchen victories in awhile, so figured it's about time, because I've definitely had a few. You can check them all out on my Pinterest Success board, but I'll name some favs here for ya lazier folk. These are not going … Read more…

Housewarming gifts and Consumer Reports

It's been an adventure putting this house together. And I hope you don't take that to mean that it is put together, because it's definitely not. My shoes are still everywhere (but what's new?) and we still have plenty of boxes to unpack, but things … Read more…

So on the way back from Fredericksburg we decided to stop at CAPs in Katy, because...I guess we wanted to be sad about all the animals who need homes? And also maybe we had a small desire to get a dog. As I've mentioned in previous posts (uhhh yesterday's...) Casey is a very hesitant consumer. It took a total of nine test drives and months of reading the same edition of Consumer Reports before he bought the new car. So, I had told myself there was a 90% chance we wouldn't get a dog and a 10% chance we'd fall in love but be too afraid to commit. But turns out I was super wrong, because WE GOT A DOG. Her name is Tory, and she is … Keep Reading...
