Favorite Kitty Pic Friday!

I hope you all have been having better weather than we have the last couple days.  Rain, rain, rain!  Today is supposed to be sunny though, but slightly chilly, so Bean will get to wear his one new fleecy outfit for the first time (if it fits him yet – he’ll be 5 months old on Wednesday, but still wears some 0-3 clothes and some 3-6 are still a tad big on him!)!  I can’t wait to see how cute he looks in it!  Fleecy baby clothes are just too cute.   :)

Well, back to the original star of this post…here is my choice for the week:

DSCF0356 Dusty sunbathing by the patio door.  He’s such a pretty kitty!   :)

I hope you all have a good weekend.  We will be preparing the house for Thanksgiving, and hopefully doing some outside prep/clean-up for the winter.  I also hope to buy my chest freezer between today and this weekend, so hopefully we will have that in time for Thanksgiving as well!  I never thought I would get excited about having a chest freezer…  Oh, the life of a domesticated, stay-at-home, breastfeeding mom!

Calling all bloggers!

I have never done this before, but since I don't get to blog as much as I would like to lately, but would like to keep the readers I have as well as get some new traffic to the blog, I'm opening up to guest blog posts. If you are interested, you can write about whatever you want - from recipes, parenting, crafts, TV, etc. I only ask that you don't pick a topic that is too political or controversial, and no major profanities. Sound like something you want to do? E-mail me to let me know, and as soon as I get responses, I can figure out a good posting schedule. Looking forward to hearing from some fellow bloggers!

Favorite Kitty Pic Friday!

Well, I haven’t done this in a while either!  But here’s a most recent picture that I think is just too funny:

Ben and Jasper Bean and Jasper!  Bean looks very happy, Jasper not so much.  But he actually stayed there and let Bean lay on him to take the picture!  He makes for such a soft pillow.  ;)

I hope everyone has a great weekend!  We will be going to the Redner’s Family Expo on Sunday, where the twirling group I teach for is performing, and this performance I will actually be the announcer!  Oh boy…I hope they like my voice, because I don’t really like it.  I’m a little nervous, but at least I have cards to read from.  Wish me luck!

Seriously?! Thursday

I haven’t participated in this since before Bean was born, and I can’t do it from the iPhone, so I got him to sleep in his rocker and now I can finally participate this week!

1 – I have a 4 month old!  I can’t believe it!  Now that he’s over being colicky, he’s more fun everyday, and I can’t wait until we get into even more fun times!

2 – The builder of my house has yet again angered me.  My driveway is sinking where it meets the sidewalk.  It took my MIL tripping on the separation and falling face first in the street for them to decide it was time to fix it.  2 years we’ve been waiting for this.  And now?  They came and cut the driveway to remove that section, and left it like that!  First we were arguing with them about re-doing the entire driveway because my car is also creating divots, but they say no to that, and now I have this cut in my driveway and no one has come to do anything with it since.  It snowed, so they couldn’t then, but the temps are warmer now, the snow is melted, so where are they?!

3 – Speaking of snow, it snowed here!  2 days before Halloween, and a good couple of inches too!  Crazy weather.  I never thought we’d have a white Halloween!

4 – Old people need to learn how to drive again.  I was leaving Babies R Us yesterday, did not have a stop sign but the old dude did, and he started to pull out on me and almost hit the side of my car…then he had the nerve to glare and yell at me!  Seriously?!

5 – There are way too many pictures of Bean.  Well, not really.  How can you not take a picture of his cute face everyday?  But seriously, need to find a better solution for storing these digital images and sharing them with family.  We’re running out of room with our current way.

6 – We’re already in November!  Thanksgiving is coming up, my house is a wreck, Christmas is sooner than I’m ready for…I’m at a total loss as to how to handle Christmas gifts for Bean this year now too.  He’ll be 6 months old then (half a year already?!), so he’ll start to be able to play with more toys, but how many do you get?  What’s too much and what’s not enough?  Usually Hubby and I just spend a certain amount on each other, so number of gifts depends on what we buy that fits into that spending amount.  Is that how we handle Bean’s gifts too?

I guess that’s all I have for now.  I am going to try to start doing Favorite Kitty Pic Friday again, but it probably will just be once in a while when I get the chance to sit at the computer and deal with photos.  I hope to get one scheduled for tomorrow though!  I have a few other posts I want to do too, including a photo heavy post of Bean’s first Halloween pictures, but I have to get them off the camera and into the computer yet.

Have a great evening!
