Tiny Baby Cat

cat 1Last Friday night we had a few people over to celebrate our friends Darren and Kay being in town. We were hanging out on the balcony and heard a cat meowing outside. We looked down and saw the tiniest kitten hoping across our front yard. The next morning we brought him inside, gave him 32948029384 flea baths and took a few pictures.
cat 3 Isn’t he cute? We’re currently calling him Yellow Cat 2.0, Tiny Baby Cat, Phillip Seymour Cat, George W. Cat and Jennifer Love Cat. We’re not great with names.cat 2Tiny Baby Cat has been living in our bathroom, which is much nicer than outside in the rain, but still isn’t ideal. He’s real cute and lets you hold him like a baby. Anyone want this guy?

Nailed It!

green nails 1Pretty green stripy nails! 3 green polishes and 1 white nail striper = easy and interesting color gradient nails. This is a great example of easy nail art without using any tools or nail stickers. green nails 2I want to try this same look using another color. I’m thinking about going from black to white with grays in the middle. What do you think?

Shovels and Rope

shovels and rope
We are currently OBSESSED with the band Shovels and Rope. My friend Kayla mentioned them several times over various social media sites, and because I know she has great taste, I decided to check them out. Shovels and Rope is made up of a married couple from South Carolina. Their debut album is called O’ Be Joyful and I think you should definitely check it out.

Guys, they’re so good!! Ray describes them as delta-folk-country-rock, and I think it’s pretty accurate.

Who are you musically obsessed with right now?
