dog people vs. cat people

a friend posted this video and i had to share.  hilarious truth.

i am 99% sure that 100% of the time our cat, milo bojangles, would be giving me the middle finger if he could.

this guy on the other hand.  always up for giving love.  always up to play.  plenty of gross “dog behaviors” as mentioned in the video.

and my sweet girl.  always up for cuddles with her mama.  nothing is better than when collapses her huge head in my lap for snuggles.


merry christmas

wishing you all a merry christmas from our family to yours.

{us weekly} feature!

i should go ahead and apologize to my regular readers.  between now and december 15th (last day to ship for christmas delivery) i will be pretty absent from this space.

last week my etsy shop, kelsi creates, was featured in the us weekly holiday gift guide!  to see my shop in print has been one of the highlights of my life.  to see something that i created published is amazing.  since then, the orders have been flying in.  it is such an exciting time!  overwhelming.  but tremendously exciting.

so this has been my world for the last week …

the husband and i walked the greensboro gobbler 5k with my dad and stepmom on thanksgiving.

while i was showering, the husband snuck away to find an open store with the magazine on the shelf.  it is the one with will & kate, dated dec. 3rd.  he surprised us with several copies!  i am beyond thrilled.

since then, it has been emails and orders and emails.  lots and lots of emails.

the husband is my “logistics manager” i.e. he takes completed orders to the post office that is right down the road from his office.  needless to say, he has become quick friends with the postal employees at that branch.

with most orders having more than one pillow, it is hard to keep track of the number of orders versus the actual number of pillows needed to be made.  one order was for 11 pillows!  insanity.  another order was for a home that is getting ready to be photographed in the architecture digest magazine.  at some point, someone should pinch me.  it just feels so surreal.  it is truly amazing.

so this is my blessed life for the next couple of weeks.  the cut off date for orders to be delivered by christmas is december 3rd, so if you are interested, yes there is still time to get your holiday order in.  emails, pillows, gym, sleep.  thankful that i have these guys to keep me company.

mitt romney {the best of halloween 2012}

we don’t get any trick or treaters out where we live. this year our good friends, nancy and paul, graciously invited us over to their bustling neighborhood for halloween.  their adorable pup baxter dressed up for the occasion.

after a delicious dinner we piled on the front porch with hot apple cider to hand out to the neighborhood kids.

the costume of the night, hands down when to this little guy.  he was dressed as mitt romney and, well, lets just say i don’t think he was a huge supporter.

when he walked away he yelled, “don’t vote for me.  seriously, don’t.”  i absolutely adore carrboro kids.

on a slightly different note:  our vet was having a costume contest for all the cats and pups.  our pups are entirely too big for costumes but i put together the collage below of our sweet martha stewart.  yep, every year {every day actually} she attempts to be a polar bear.  so from our house to yours, i hope you all had a wonderful halloween.
