Tortie Tuesday!

Happy Tortie Tuesday! Today's lesson in Tortieness is to do what makes you happy, recognize your strengths and enjoy everything you do. I am very happy when curled up on Mommy's lap while she's trying to work.
I recognize that I am a master lap curler upper!
I enjoy it very much and it puts a smile on my face!

What do you enjoy that puts a smile on your face?

Hide and Seek

Psst...it's me Angel. I'm hiding from my sisfur!
It's so fun to hide from her!
Uh oh, I think she might have found me!

The Best Thing About Sunday!

I love Sundays! We get to sleep in and also take naps throughout the day. But the best thing about Sunday is laying in nice warm laundry!
What is your favorite thing about Sundays?

Persistence Pays Off

Mommy tries to read every night but I have other plans so I need to get her attention. I'll start with a show of my floof. I wonder if she's paying attention to me?
The sly routine doesn't seem to be working. It's going to be one of those nights...
I guess it's time for the stare down!
Okay, any time now Mommy!
Finally! The safe has been cracked!
I have her wrapped around my paw!

Tortie Tuesday!

Happy Tortie Tuesday! Today's lesson in Tortieness is to accentuate your positives. Everyone has something that is unique and beautiful and sets you apart from everyone else. Be sure to highlight this feature and always be proud to display what makes you who you are! In my case, it's my Tortie nose and my Tortie paw!
What's your distinguishing feature?

Behind Closed Doors

Have you ever heard that saying that "you never know what goes on behind closed doors"? Or maybe the expression "you only get one chance to make a first impression"? Well, here's our closed front door...
And here's what goes on behind it!
What's the first impression from seeing this entry way?
All visitors get greeted by the furbabies. If they don't like animals, they don't make it in the house!
Disclaimer time now....there usually isn't as many toys or even a box laying in our entry way but during tax season thing such as picking up after the pets tend to get neglected. That being said, there's a pile of toys on either side of the door that can't be seen in the photos. In the last photo, Isabella isn't in view but is behind the door playing with her Ladybugs!

Special Sunday!

Today I'm going to do something a little different. I'm going to introduce you to three blogs that if you haven't met yet, they are really worth getting to know! To start off, last week I received the Lemonade award from two of these blogs - Katie at Mishkat and Meghann at Little Studio Photography and Jewellery.
To show my appreciation, here's some more information about these blogs beginning with Mishkat!
I met Katie from Mishkat through Etsy and liked her from the very first contact. She is a huge animal lover and has three kitties pictured below - Tasha, Dobby and Franklin.
Katie has been such a wonderful supporter of mine and I appreciate it more than I can say. Her blog has been entertaining and fabulous from Day 1 as we hear about the antics of her kitties. Tasha is a tortie so of course I enjoy posts about her! Franklin has such innocent playfulness in everything he does and his purrsonality shows in his expressive face! He's so cute! And Dobby is so handsome and has the cutest pink paws that I've ever seen! Be sure to visit their blog and I'm sure you'll be glad you did!
The next blog I'd like you to meet is Little Studio Photography and Jewellry.
I met Meghann from Little Studio through Etsy for Animals but I got to know her through her blog. On her blog she shares a little about her jewelry, her photos, her life and of course her dog Arwen!
Meghann has an ability to talk through her blog like she's sitting right next to you. Her caring personality shows through too. Be sure to pay her a visit!
Finally, I'd like you to meet Abby from Simply Charming in SC

Abby has the most wonderful ability to make her blog readers feel like you are long time friends. Her heart shows through in everything she does. A few weeks ago she received the Generosity award and passed it on to several people including me. But, she didn't stop there. She also sent each of us a present. I received beautiful earrings from her yesterday and she brought a very bright end to my really long week! I will be paying it forward after tax season is over when I can concentrate fully on making something special for my recipients. Abby also recently started a blog for her kitties called The FatKat Kronicles and Scooter is the main blogger for the kitty family.

Today happens to be Scooters 1st Birthday so be sure to stop by and send him your birthday wishes! While you're there, check out some of the earlier posts and I guarantee that you will have a smile on your face!

Mommy is always using that flashy box on us but not all the pictures she takes with it make it to the blog for one reason or another. Since we know we don't take a bad picture, we're digging out some of those "outtakes" and posting them today.

For our Daytona 500 post, Isabella got up close and purrsonal with a driver named Mickey. It wasn't posted just how purrsonal she got! No wonder Mickey is smiling!
When Mommy was taking pictures of us for a Thankful Thursday post, I licked my new string from Lily at Tulip's Talking but it stuck to my tongue!
One day while watching football with Daddy, I got up close to one of the players and he was trying to tell me something. Probably that I'm so cute!
And this is Sadie doing what she does best. I think this picture was used before but since she does about the same thing all the time, it's hard to find outtakes of her.
Enjoy your Saturday!

Nothing Gets Between Me and Sunlight, Well, Almost Nothing!

There is nothing better than lounging in the sunlight. Hey Angel, whaddya think you're doing? You're blocking my sunlight!
That's right little sisfur, keep on walking.
Can you believe the nerve of little sisfurs? They are always trying to get in the middle of everything.
Now where was I? Oh yes, lounging in the sunlight...

Tortie Tuesday!

Happy Tortie Tuesday! Today's lesson is to see your true beauty in everything you do and everywhere you look!
Even in your reflection on laptops!
