Conversation with Felines

Oliver & Topher love to be together.
They keep each other company and are best buds.
They both wanted my attention when I came home the other day
and they looked so cute that I decided to have a photo shoot.
Hi handsome boys!  How was your day?
 We missed YOU!
 Why did you leave us for so long?
 Topher was naughty... 
he slept on your pillow, made a mess of his food and meowed all day long.
 That's a LIE!  
I was an angel; Oliver snoozed the day away so he has no clue what I was up to.
 Who are you going to believe?
Let's all just get along.
You're both sweet and you deserve a treat :)
My cats crack me up! :)  Hope they made you smile too!

Pencil Flags

I'm always amazed at how excited my students get over
a brand new, perfectly sharpened pencil.
I knew when I found these at The Dollar Tree that I couldn't pass them up:
 I put them on sharpened pencils and topped them with a new eraser.
 The kids loved them!
I was amazed at how their handwriting improved
and how proud they were to write with their new, bedazzled pencil.

Sweet Shot Tuesday

I've been practicing using my new camera lately.
 Here are my favorite shots this month:
 I'm linking up with Darcy for Sweet Shot Tuesday.

Floral Statement

Dear Anthropologie,
I'm craving a bright floral chair for my house.
However, I'm not a fan of your $1,600 Anthro price tag.
Thanks for the inspiration.
I'm going to be on the lookout for a more affordable option.
Love, Whitney

Slightly Chilled Cat

Ever refrigerated your cat?
I was trying to clean out my fridge,
took the drawers out
and within seconds found this little surprise peeking at me:
 Cold cat anyone??
*No cats were harmed in the making of this post.

Eat Well Everyday

We were out of town for a good chunk of this week
so I didn't do a ton of cooking.
Here are the healthy things that I had time to fix:
 Hoping to fix more fruits & veggies this week.

What are little brothers good for?

"Arm rests and foot rests," says Oliver.

Official IU Plaid

I was pretty pumped to find out that my alma mater, Indiana University,
now has its own official PLAID pattern:
I placed my vote a few weeks ago and this was the winner.
Here's a link to the story behind the plaid

The possibilities are endless... ties, pants, skirts, scarves, etc.
Can't wait to see where this plaid debuts.


It seems like everyone and their mom are getting bangs these days.
I'm getting a little bored with my hair 
and am wondering if I should jump on board...
 Even the boys are jumping on board :)
Is this a trend or trash??

I do a lot of work from home but sometimes I run into roadblocks.
Cute, orange roadblocks...
Not. sharing. the. mouse.
Hairy eye ball telling me to go away.
 I left the computer for just a few minutes, heard a crash, and came in to see this:
Wonder how that happened?
"Helping" me write a list.
 My work here is done.
Thanks for your "help" Topher.
