At the moment I have two kitties snuggled up in the laundry basket and I'm dying of cuteness. It's amazing how much trouble and also love animals can give a person. Aside from pooping everywhere, the little guys are my favorite :)
My sister in law is/will be staying with us for a few weeks which has been fun! Last night she made us cupcakes, know she can pretty much stay forever in my book. My sister is coming to stay with us tonight as well-I just love having a full house! I have a squash roasting in the oven right now, which makes the entire house smell like fall deliciousness...and love. So it should be a pretty great day.
If I had gotten some sleep the day would be even better! We still don't have a proper window in our bedroom, just plastic so when it thunderstorms you better believe we aren't able to sleep until the storm passes. The rain pelts the plastic like it's a metal sheet and thunder is twice as loud too. I cannot wait until we get that baby fixed!

Well, I'm off to get some dishes washed and run a few errands, pretty much the daily routine :)
Have a blessed day friends!

Glad that you are surrounded by your family - that is always so fun!

Kaaaatie, the more I read your blog the bigger girl crush I get on you. I LOVE that vest, especially with the matching ribbon. I seriously can't stop swooning over it! And I like the far away bridge shots- very fun :)

What a beautiful setting for photos. You look so gorgeous. This is probably my all time favourite outfit of yours. I still cant believe what an amazing find it was. It represents your flawless style perfectly. Kitties are just the best. It sure is amazing how much love a kitty cat can provide. Wish I was with my kitty right now.

Hahah, the oldest of my kitties tends to pee on strategically important places. I had a gorgeous pair of leather boots, which she destroyed in a matter of seconds with her pee :-D

Love the whole ensemble, the color suits you a lot!

Can I just say how happy those pictures I see of your cats on Facebook that pop up every now and then on my newsfeed makes me? So happy. SO HAPPY. I'm glad your two new balls of purring fur are just delights (aside from the pooping everywhere, as you said wink wink).

Aaah! Plastic windows would scare me during a thunderstorm. I love thudnerstorms, but not when they're super loud and close, eeek! Hope you get that fixed soon!

I remember this exciting outfit... gosh, I love it. The blue and greens are so rich and vibrant. This dress reminds me of an Alice in Wonderland gone 80s or something, and I mean that in the cutest way. :)
