Meet Frankie!

10153794_10153365646648363_7370507212575566158_nWe welcomed a new little bundle of joy into our lives last weekend. It’s a boy and his name is Frankie. He’s the cutest, most adorable ball of fur I’ve ever seen. I’ve always been a cat lover (dog lover too).

Growing up, we always had a cat or 5 hanging around our property or in the house. Not only are cats both soothing and wisdom holding but they are so adorable and absolutely silly. Unfortunately, the last few places we’ve lived, we haven’t been able to have a pet. Maybe that’s it. The cat-maternal instinct deep inside me was in overdrive seeing all my social media pals flashing their beloved pets in my face. I was definitely the definition of the term “jealous much.”

All that has since dissipated now that I have transitioned into the full swing of everything cat. PetSmart and Petco are my favorite places to go and don’t be ‘a judgin’ if you see me walking Frankie on a leash sometime this summer.

I’m a Cat Mom and I love it.10730819_10153365646598363_7813242617922223918_n

My “Thanks” Giving

orinickI was more excited than I have been in the past about Thanksgiving. Not because I really care about the heritage because lets be honest, the white people probably would have froze to death if the Native Americans wouldn’t have saved them. It’s been far too long since I’ve actually heard the accurate version of the “first” Thanksgiving but that isn’t what this post is about. Moving on.

Moving an extra hour away recently and all three of us kids are officially adults living our own lives, it’s hard to stay as connected as we used to be. So, getting together on Thanksgiving was really special for me this year even if it was only a few hours.

These pictures aren’t necessarily the most attractive you’ll ever find but they definitely summarize the three of us and our sibling-hood to a “T.” I also noticed looking through my pictures that I need to take more of my parents. I was busy taking pictures of my brothers, aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandma that I didn’t get a chance to snap one of my parents together. Christmas is in a few short weeks so I’ll have to make a point of doing that then. I hope you and yours had a very Happy Thanksgiving and I want to send out a special “Thanks” to my mom for making a delicious Thanksgiving dinner!
