Happy Thanksgiving!

I figured I would take the time to write a blog post about what I am thankful on this day where we are supposed to truly appreciate what we have in life.

First, I am thankful for all my fur babies (who are not all pictured here). Anyone who has pets know that while sometimes they may drive you crazy and you feel like you’re an idiot for having them they really bring joy to your life. I know a lot of people say pets are just dumb animals and they really shouldn’t be considered a part of the family, but they to me my fur babies are a huge part of my family and I love them all so much and couldn’t imagine life without them.

Next I am thankful that while we don’t own this house we are still able to live in a house with such a beautiful backyard and that we have food on the table as there are people who don’t have these luxuries.

And finally I am most grateful for my husband, Aaron. Of course we’ve had our fights and it hasn’t always been sunshine and roses, but that doesn’t mean I regret any of it. Having him in my life has been one of the best things that has ever happened to me and I wouldn’t trade a single minute of my time spent with or time I will spend with him for anything.

Let me know what you are thankful for and I hope everyone has a happy and safe Thanksgiving or day if you don’t celebrate Thanksgiving!

Finally Back with Lots of Updates!!

I’m sorry that I was gone for so long, but life got super crazy and I just didn’t really have the chance to write a blog post and to be fully honest I didn’t really have the motivation to do it either. But I am ready now to start writing on my blog again, so let me catch you up on everything!!

We went to Disneyworld for the first time at the end of August and it was an absolute blast! A couple of of our friends also came with us and that just made it even more awesome and I can’t wait to go back (honestly wish I was there now).

Right after out trip to Disneyworld we moved to Kansas which is something we had been discussing all Summer and so far we aren’t really regretting it. We actually have a three bed two bath house with a nice big back yard and everyone is loving it.

Another crazy thing we did is that we adopted three new dogs (the one not pictured is a Pit Bull/Mastiff mix) and a kitten (she is just a tortie). With the fact that we finally have a fenced in yard and a house we were able to give these fur babies a home and don’t worry we’re not adopting anymore pets.

That is a basic summary of what has been going on in my life. I’m going to start writing on here more regularly again and I look forward to that as writing a blog really is a lot of fun.

Some Stuff I Bought Recently

It has been a bit of a crazy month seeing as it was my birthday this month, I had surgery, and just some other crazy personal stuff, so I wasn’t really able to write much. Today I decided to share some stuff I bought recently.

As you may know Eevvee and it’s evolutions are my favorite pokemon, with Sylveon being the absolute favorite. I already have some Eevee bags, but one more couldn’t hurt and this one was smaller for when I only needed my wallet and phone which I find very convenient and easy to use.

It’s been getting starting to get super hot like it does in Colorado (yes I know there are hotter and worse places, the thing is I get super hot really easy), so I needed to get some tank tops that had lower cut arm pit holes for my rather sweaty self. This Zelda one looked awesome and it is super comfy and does exactly what I need it to.

This next and final tank top is one of my new favorite shirts. The arm pit holes are cut super low, it’s black so you can’t see any sweat, and it has Umbreon on it. It’s even better cause it’s like I’m carrying my dog with me when I wear it seeing as she is named after this pokemon.

My last item or items cause it came in a set of five are these adorable kitty socks. They are ankle cut which are the only kind of socks I wear and the colors are pink (obviously), light blue, lilac, black, and white.

That’s all I have to show for this post. I will hopefully be writing more soon as I really do enjoy writing on this blog and I know I don’t do it nowhere near enough.

Spring Has Arrived!!

The past couple days here in Colorado it would seem that Spring has decided to grace us with it’s presence. True, it still gets pretty chilly at night, but the days are nice and warm and full of sunshine that just rejuvenates you from that hibernating you’ve been doing all winter.

The trees for the most part haven’t really gotten their leaves or flowers, but they should start getting colorful and green super soon. Along with Spring arriving I have been doing a fair amount of cleaning around the apartment. It just feels new and fresh in the air, so of course I feel like I have to keep up with it and make my home new and fresh too.

It’s crazy to me that on my walk with Umbreon today I saw plenty of people who were still in jeans and sweatshirts and mind you we went on this walk at about 2 in the afternoon, so by that point it was quite warm considering the high was in the 70s today. Maybe I’m just the weird one cause I get hot really easy.

As I kind of mentioned above, the animals in the house have been enjoying the sun as well. Well at least as much as they can considering that all the windows in our apartment are on the side of the building that never sees the sun. Still I have the windows open so they can get the fresh air that way.

 

All About My Pets

I decided that even though the animals have been previously mentioned, it was time to formally introduce them all and write a little about them. They are all rescued as I personally want try to try to avoid buying from breeders, but of course there is nothing wrong if you do buy from breeders. This is just my personal choice. IMG_0018.JPG

First we have the dog and first baby Umbreon. She is a Hungarian Puli and this is her shaved actually. If we let her fur fully grow out she would have long dreadlocks and look like a mop and that is because her coat is perfectly weather resistant as these dogs were bred in Hungary to be sheep herders. She is a very sweet girl who isn’t too happy that our collection of pest has grown as that means a little less attention for her. Of course though she is perfectly nice to them all and she will always be special as she is our first baby, whether you count fur babies or human babies

Next is our currently nine month old American Short Haired kitten Spooky. He is a huge cuddle bug and actually very much enjoys being held and loved on. He is kept as an indoor cat and he is fixed. I have seen some people say they think it’s mean to neuter their cat when actually it is healthy for them. They live longer, happier lives when fixed, and they don’t feel the need to mark and destroy your house.

Now we move onto our more unique pets the fist one being the African Pygmy hedgehog Shaymin. Contrary to popular belief you can hold a hedgehog. Really the worst pain you feel is like getting poked with a needle that doesn’t pierce your skin. Hedgehogs do take time to adjust to human touch and interaction and you do have to play with them at least half an hour everyday. They are also nocturnal so that means you have to wait till night to play with them otherwise they won’t really be into it. Definitely do some research if you are considering getting one as their is a lot you need to know about them.

Finally our newest babies, the rats Tatl, Tael, and Peter Pettigrew. I honestly love all rodents and rats are super cute, smart, and clean contrary to popular belief about them. They love being held and cuddled and they can even learn tricks like dogs and can learn their names. Our babies are about 2 months old and each of them is so different from the other, with Tael being the most playful and Peter being the one who would much rather sleep than do anything.

That is all I have time to write about each of my sweet fur babies. If you would like me to write a post specifically on one of them just let me know and I will be more than happy to do that.
