Cat photos. Everyone likes cat photos!

IMG_8940

Juniper and I were hanging out this afternoon. She was rolling around and just asking to be photographed!

IMG_8946

She ignored me for the most part.

IMG_8950

She was sleepy.

IMG_8951

And I just love that little face!

IMG_8954

Rollin’!

IMG_8955

Scratchy back.

IMG_8957

And dirty paws.

IMG_8958

She’s active in the afternoon when we come home from work. If it’s after 3pm…she’s zonked out on “her” chair.

IMG_8959

Shy little girl.

IMG_8961

Deep in thought. Not really deep…she probably just saw a fuzzy on the floor.

IMG_8965

Close your little mouth baby kitty!

IMG_8967

Two paws up for kitty time!

It’s a Birthday!

Today is Eric’s Birthday! We woke up, had some gift giving AND ate a chocolate peanut butter silk pie that I made! Today was also the Mother of all Yard Sales in Everett. I bought some pink lemonade from a little girl selling it along the sidewalk. She even had lemon slices in the cup! She was selling pink lemonade, limeade and regular lemonade. We opted for the pink lemonade since she said it was her favorite.

Eric wanted to go to Bamboo Garden in Seattle for lunch and I’m not one to say no to some Bamboo Garden. I had some wonton udon noodle soup. So good!

IMAG2066

Bamboo Garden serves sizzling plates that Eric has been lusting after for a long time. They’re a little pricey but since it was his Birthday I was able to talk him into finally having one. He approves.

IMAG2068

These were my finds for the day! I’ve heard good things about Stiff so I picked it up at my favorite used book store in Fremont. The (racist?) Canadian Mounted Policeman was a yard sale find. I have a thing for Mounties so I had to add him to my collection! Also I’m apparently starting to wear nail polish. In the past week I’ve purchased three bottles of the stuff! I’m almost girly.

And this face was waiting for us at home! Cute little girl.

More packages!

Today was another fabulous mail day! I don’t know about you, but I love getting letters and packages in the mail. When we get mail though it’s not just for us…it’s for Juniper too! She demands to hop in every box that comes through our door. She will check out envelopes and junk mail for us too. You never know…maybe we missed something!

IMG_3577

Fantastic packaging! I can’t tell you what’s inside though. You’ll find out the day of the wedding. Hold your horses!

Last week I had a treat yo self moment from Cisthene.  I’ve been eyeing some bangles for a few weeks.  I just went for it.  Treat yo self!

IMG_3581

I love fancy packaging! I don’t like snakes though so the faux snakeskin creeped me out a little bit. I can appreciate it though!

IMG_3587

Bracelet!

IMG_3590

Juniper thought it was for her. She tried to pick the bracelet up in her mouth after batting it around a bit.

Eric and I took a little drive tonight to a park that we had never been to before. The park seemed pretty nice from what we could see. There were trails around a marshy area, but you had to park about a half mile away and walk to the trails. We decided not to do this since it was starting to rain. You’d think we’d be used to the rain by now. We did find some lovely blooming flowers and bushes near the trails!

Happy Thursday!  Come on Friday!

Kick it!

Eric and I posted our Kickstarter project a few days ago!  I get wordy and confusing so here’s how Eric described the project on Hey I’m Over Here

“Following our June wedding on the east coast, Sarah and I will be embarking on a honeymoon trip along Route 66. For three weeks, we’ll be photographing the Road and the oddities along it with vintage Polaroid cameras.

Unlike many Kickstarter photography projects, our end goal isn’t a book – it’s the photos themselves. We want to travel Route 66, take photos with vintage Polaroids and send them to people – friends, family, even strangers. Each photo will necessarily be a one of a kind, you will have the only copy in existence. We won’t even have one! . Each will be taken along Route 66 and will in some way capture the essence of the old road. And to be clear, regardless of whether the project is funded, we’ll be traveling Route 66 this summer. The support you give will allow us to purchase film, additional cameras and needed supplies for shipping the photos. Rest assured you will not be funding our vacation.” 

In less than two days we actually reached our funding goal!  We were so surprised and thankful that people wanted our photos!  You can still support the project and we’ll send you photos from the road if you’re interested.  Head on over to our Kickstarter page to check it out!

This post needs a cat photo.

Happy 2nd Birthday, Juniper!

IMG_2239

Our little kitten turned two years old today! I can’t believe she’s that old already. I bought her a few toys to celebrate the day. I also bought her a new soft brush to get rid of that pesky winter fur. Juniper had this same exact toy when we adopted her. She lost it somewhere…I assume under the washing machine…but she loved it! She started playing with this right away after I took it out of the package.

IMG_2243

She likes to play fetch with the mint toy too. She likes to play fetch with most of her toys, but this one is easy for her to carry around in her mouth.

IMG_2245

It’s Birthday-bath time! Someone needs to vacuum up those sock fuzzies!

IMG_2251

I also picked up this little comfort toy for her. You can warm this toy up in the microwave for 30 seconds and the beans inside the toy will be nice and warm for your cat. It’s supposed to be comforting for the cat. I plan on warming this up everyday for her and giving it to her to cuddle. I hope to have the person watching Juniper while we’re travelling this summer warm this up for her everyday so she feels comforted. I feel really bad about leaving Juniper this summer!

Miss Purrito investigates!

Happy 2nd Birthday my little rescue kitten!

Sunbathin’.

Today was very much a spring day in the Pacific Northwest! The sun was shining and the skies were clear. I think it was even close to 50 degrees F! I came home from work and opened all of the curtains for Juniper to look out of. We’ve been getting more and more sun the past few weeks. Juniper has been sunning herself more often too.

IMG_1803

Sunny little toes.

IMG_1804

Kitten shadows.

IMG_1807

I was getting ready to exercise after letting in some light and then I spotted Juniper taking an afternoon bath.

IMG_1808

She had a dirty face.

IMG_1809

Don’t forget to wash behind your ears!

IMG_1813

Put your tongue back in!

IMG_1815

Juniper was sleeping when I came home from work. I guess she needed a good scrubbin’ after a long nap.

IMG_1817

Too much cute!

IMG_1834

All done!

I’ve started to work out with Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred!  I’m on day 4.  I’ve been feeling great after working out!  I wasn’t expecting to get as sweaty as I did but she honestly gives you a good workout.  Give it a try and get moving!

Merry Christmas, Me!

IMG_1402

Along with many fun things I received for Christmas, there were some gift cards. One was for Etsy. I knew exactly what I would buy with it! A faux longhorn cow skull. Maybe it doesn’t seem very vegan of me, but I’ve been wanting one. The crazy horse lover and romanticised cowboy lover in me has been wanting one for a very long time. And since I’m a fan of obnoxious colors…metallic silver is was.

I bought my skull from this Etsy shop.  She was super helpful and even used a custom color for me at no extra charge!

IMG_1407

I used to collect Breyer horses when I was a kid. This is a horse that my Grandma gave me.

IMG_1409

Sometimes the crazy horse girl side of me comes back and then I make purchases like this at the thrift store. It needed a home!

IMG_1411

The skull is actually make out of a lightweight resin. Yee haw!

IMG_1418

I’m making a little altar with my horse and cow tchotchkes. An altar worshipping what?…you got me…I just don’t know really what else to call it!

IMG_1419

While I was hammering away this afternoon I heard some rustling behind me.

IMG_1426

Surprise! It was my little American Tourister!

It sure is a Monday.

I made a ton of food tonight after my jaunt on the elliptical machine.  I like making a bunch of food at the beginning of the week so I don’t have to slave over the stove later in the week.  I have other things I’d like to do besides cook!

IMG_1367

Pasta with beans and peppers. Hawaiian chilli with pineapple. Jasmine rice.

IMG_1373

I put my new copper dishes to good use.

IMG_1377

I started to feel a little mopey tonight so forcing Juniper to have a photo shoot with me always makes me feel better.

IMG_1386

She didn’t mind though. She had things to play with.

Cyndi Lauper can always make things right too.

Weekend reading list.

  1.  I found and backed this Kickstart project to restore the only carousel in Wyoming AND the world’s only Cowboy and Indian carousel.
  2. And since saying “Indian” isn’t PC…here’s an article about proper and improper Native American appropriation.  I hate to say it, but I’m super guilty of loving the Native American-inspired patterns that have been littering the fashion world this year.  I can’t help it.  The patterns are gorgeous and you can’t deny that!
  3. Now today I DID find some websites that are owned and operated and made by Native Americans!  These earrings from The Soft Museum are so much fun!  I might need to buy some of these for the wedding.  Sister Sky sells body care products inspired by Native American Herbal wisdom.  They also contain NO animal products and are NOT tested on animals!  I plan on trying their products super soon!  I have my eye on the Sweet Grass Body Lotion.
  4. And on a lighter note, 20 Signs You Are a “Native American-Inspired” Hot Mess.  Number 16 and 19 are my favorite.
  5. This is probably my favorite camera information site.  Moose’s Camera Tips For Beginners is my go-to site!  Give it a browse and you’ll agree with me.
  6. I found this article that listed some right and wrong ways to juice.  Apparently kale isn’t the best veggie to be juicing.  I did not know this.  I always wondered why I see people using spinach more often than kale in juicing recipes.  The more you know, right?

I caught Juniper trying to nap and watch football at the same time a few days ago.

Stocking up with a kitten and a new book!

After work today I made another trip to the local Asian store, Mekong, that will be closing in a few days. I’m so sad! Eric and I stocked up on rice noodles, tamari, seaweed, rice vinegar and green tea.

IMG_1263

The green tea is organic too!

IMG_1284

It was super cold outside today, but the sun was shining! Miss Purrito was checking out the sun and looking for the other neighborhood kitties.

IMG_1288

She’s so curious.

IMG_1291

Can you see her curly whisker? She has one whisker that always curls up. It looks like she used a curling iron on it. She’s always had it and it’s super cute!

A few months ago while browsing Kickstarter, I spotted a project for a vegan cookbook.  The design was lovely and the recipes sounded like food that Eric and I would love to try.  I backed the project and it was funded!  Today my cookbook arrived in the mail!  The book has huge photos with almost every recipe!  I like that.  The book also has a matte finish which I prefer over books with glossy covers.  There were also a handful of stickers and a bookmark in the package.  If you want to order your own copy of the book you can do that here!

IMG_1312

From Germany with love.

IMG_1316

Gorgeous photos, no?

IMG_1317

ANNNDD…what I’m most excited about…GULAB JAMUNS! These doughy fried sweet balls are so good! I’ve had them a few times at Indian restaurants when I ate dairy. This might be the first recipe I try out of the book!

IMG_1319

Fun stickers to stick on everything!

IMG_1321

Oh, and there’s an acknowledgements page at the end of the book too.

IMG_1322

And there she is!
