Friday Letter's with a Little Music

Friday, April 26, 2013


Dear apartment-Get yourself in gear. As in, unpack all the new fun things and find space for them. Yes, like yesterday.

Dear Bikini Series-I am very excited to take part in you and get my beach body just in time for the honeymoon! If you want to know what I'm talking about, check out Tone it up!

Dear wedding planning- May 1 is aboutttt 6 days away. The deadline I set for myself does not go well with what wedding vendors like. Why can't I choose my music a month ahead of time? Not a big deal, people.

Dear Beast-Let's tone it down on repairs until say, about August at the minimum. My wallet can't afford much more.

Dear tax refund-Please be on your way in the mail via the USPS system. The wedding could use a little bit of this extra moola in my pocket.

Dear new shorts-I'm in love. Not showing my booty and don't ride up? Perfection. Might even have an "I love my new shorts" post sometime soon so all of you can see the amazingness.

Dear weekend-Let's do this. 70 degrees. Wedding planning. One week until Iron Man.

And now time to #backthatazzup, Please don't judge me. Or do. It's cool. But this song by Selena Gomez is quite catchy and I can get a good jam goin with it.

Meet Lily: Paws to Claws Link-Up

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

Hi Everyone! I'm Lily!  

Hey, that's me!
Having a serious moment
I am a 3 year old "fluffy" kitty. That's what mommy calls me instead of chubby. Even though I am carrying around a little extra weight.

I was saved from a wood pile in the middle of winter. Thank goodness. I couldn't live that life.

Wee Baby. Messy face.

Mommy graciously took me in and has made a wonderful home for me. I really enjoy the little things. Like my very own bed and occasional workouts.

Me in my slimmer days.

I have a few best friends. "Man" is one of them. He might be a Christmas bear but we've been buddies since the beginning.

Love him.

Some of my hobbies include looking out the window spying on my neighbors, watching TV and checking my Facebook.

I was waiting on Sandy.

Not an attractive view of my butt.

Wait, is the screen off?

My favorite parts of my day are all of the lounging around. I can not get enough.

Can I get any cuter?

And mornings cuddles.

 Me and this guy are becoming quite the buddies. And I won't even mention the fact he didn't like cats before me...

Mommy and I have our cute moments. I'm more of a cuddler than a be helder.

Please, let me down.

When I have bad days, I take a time out in the bathtub or under the couch. I think it has something to do with the fact that the bathroom was my home for the first few months of my life.

where am I?
Mommy says I have some crazy antics. I just see it as having fun and living the cat life.

What? Is this weird?

And that is me. In a nutshell. I'm sure you'll want to see me a lot, so best follow my mommy on Instagram!

Happy Birthday to the Sweetest Angel

Saturday, April 20, 2013

Today is full of memories,
Happiness and tears, 
Of birthday celebrations
we've shared throughout the years.

And though I'll always miss you
The endless joy you brought
Warms my heart with gratitude
And fills my every thought.

Wherever you are resting,
I hope that you can see,
How precious and uplifting,
Your memory is to me.

I feel that you are with me
In everything I do
So I'll celebrate your birthday
But I'll spend it missing you.

Always miss you.
Always love you.

Happy Birthday in Heaven, Mom!

Wedding Wednesday: My Bridal Shower!!

Best friends have a love for Etsy <3  You can find it here 

This past weekend I was "showered" with lots of love and gifts at a lovely shower thrown by my wonderful bridesmaids. They are seriously the best and I had an amazing shower. The theme was "Tea." I love me some tea!

Get ready for a fabulous picture overload!

True love.

My bridesmaid (Big) made these adorable cupcakes. Also, notice Mrs. Potts!

She needs a bakery now.
