Here is what I've been up to lately, courtesy of Instagram! I don't have anything big to report. I can't wait for the weather to clear up and for yard/estate sale season! Speaking of,  if you are in Nashville, look at this estate sale coming up this weekend! I have to work at 10 both days so I don't know if I'll be able to get in (I have a feeling there will be huge lines!) but I'm going to try! 
I got a new tattoo! I'm almost done with my half sleeve, I just need to get clouds and more lightening around this little moth. Isn't he cute? Then i have to decide what I want to work on next!
 I caught Travis doing a "what's in my bag post" for his instagram and it made me really happy! Haha, now I'm not the only one in the house standing up on a chair taking pictures for the internet. Also, check out Scampi supervising down there. She was concerned that he was near her food.
 We've had lots of game nights lately! Even a few at our house. (Everyone I know seems to be allergic to cats and never wants to come to this three kitty house.) Our current favorite game is Ticket to Ride. We've also been playing Tripoly(a mix of poker and rummy and hearts), and the other night we played a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle game that I bought at an estate sale last year. It was dumb and fun!
 I baby sat for the first time ever! It was only for two hours, but still it felt like an accomplishment. The baby slept most of the time, but I had fun with Felix. He loved taking photos of ourselves with my phone. Isn't he cute?
Speaking of, I tried to wait a while to buy gifts for the little baby someone close to us is having this summer, but I couldn't resist! Do you have any favorite kid stuff shops on etsy? I had a really hard time finding good stuff for some reason!
 It has snowed three times this year, and of course I've been at work all three times! One day I'll get to stay home and cozy on a snow day.
The kitties have been happy that the sun has been out more. They love to take naps on the kitchen table. And Scampi likes to take naps on any wet sweater I put on top of the dryer so that it dries flat.
 RuPaul's Drag Race is back on tv and I couldn't be happier! Do you watch it? I don't have cable (we don't get ANY channels for some reason, not even PBS!) but I watch it online. My favorite is Jinkx Monsoon!
 One of my best friends is getting married in the fall and I'm going to be in the wedding! She brought us some little "mood boards". How cute! I'm excited to buy a floral dress, and I'm thinking about getting one from this shop.
I've been doing really well with my healthy eating! I've gotten a little too lax on how many times a week I can get take out french fries but other than that I've been filling my belly with fresh, colorful food for the most part. I cooked broccoli for the first time and it was good! I've learned to make my own salad dressing too, which is fun! I'll have to post the garlic tahini one because it is SO GOOD. 

A friend told me about the East Nashville Community Acupuncture center and I've been going one a week. I really love it! And it is really affordable. If you live nearby I would encourage you to check it out. I've been going mostly for stress and anxiety and it has been great. I always come home and want to go straight to bed, so I try to get the latest appointment I can! 


  1. Wow, lots been going on with you. I love your new tat, are you gonna do a whole post about your half sleeve? I'd be interested cause I think I wanna do half sleeves too. And your kitties are so cute, gah I love seeing a sun bathin kitty.
    Does the acupuncture actually work? I've always been interested in trying it out. Maybe I'll look into it this summer.

  2. Oh wow - so much going on in this post! (and in your life!)
    Tat looking great.
    First time babysitting! He is cute alright.. I guess his parents saw that your dogs and cats are all happy and healthy so he would probably survive 2 hours with you lol!
    I'm fascinated with the estate sales system and how it works over there.. We don't really have estate sales. Dealers get rung by people with an estate and they come and give them money and take the stuff they want away. I think! they then put it in their shop or sell via the web. That one looks like a cracker for sure - good luck! I would like loads of that stuff..
    That wedding looks like it's gonna be fun - cool idea with the mood board. I've pinned that floral dress wedding pic on pinterest before - that bride was INSPIRED!
    My sister is an accupuncturist and physio.. it really does make sense how it works..
    Phew! I must be in a 'talkative' mood!

  3. So many fun things in this post! I'm going to try to make that sale if I can...your new tattoo is very cool...that little boy is adorable...and now I'm reminded that I need to eat more veggies this week. :)

  4. Jinkx is the best! I hope the funny one finally wins one.

  5. 1) I love how colorful your moth is! Gorgeous!
    2) Scampi on a wet sweater makes me laugh, cat's are just so odd. Weasley's favorite place to nap is a freshly febreezed couch. After I spray it down he will come running & turn into a major sexpot while smelling the couch & rubbing his face on it purring loudly.
    3) Drag Race, so good. I put past seasons on Netflix while I'm cleaning house because ... well, just because. We don't have cable either so I've been hunting down the new episodes on their Tumblr.
    4) Try roasting broccoli in a 400 degree oven with olive oil & sea salt. Deliciousness.
    5) I miss estate season so much, though it makes me feel like a morbid creeper to say that out loud to folks who don't understand my obsession with old stuff.

  6. tattoo! board games! cats! ahhhhh too much fun in one post!


  7. I love your moth tat so much...but that ticket to ride game is SO DAMN HARD. I played it in december and it made me crazy. I was so bad at it...but i think I will be better at the american idol wii game.

  8. Beautiful tattoo! I`m exited of how it will look, when your sleeve is almost done!

    Haha, Ticket to Ride! I love that game! It`s so easy to lern, but makes so much funtime by playing it!

    Nice greetings

  9. the cats look happy! I like the tatoo I have ben wanting a new one, I have four but Im running out of places I can cover at work that Id be willing to let someone tatoo me. Im thinking of something with moons and stars

    urban hounds

  10. I love your moth! Did you design him yourself?

  11. 1) Love your new tattoo

  13. I have heard so many good things about Ticket to Ride, but I haven't plaid it yet. Have you played Settlers of Catan? That game is super fun!
