If there is one thing that I have always valued, it is my sleep. From the time I can remember I have loved sleep and can get upwards of 12 hours at times. Sleep and I get along, and we get along well.
Sadly for my husband the opposite is true – he is lucky to get 2 hours in a row on any given night. The disparity in our sleep patterns are obvious and at times frustrating, I have begun the process of researching mattresses that are good for me, yet will also work for my insomniac spouse.

Mini Monthly Box of Awesome – December 2016 Review
Whew! December is over, and we are now in a new year filled with hope, dreams and goals.
As we enter the new year, I am making it a goal to send people more happy mail and to commemorate the special events in our family and friends lives. Since the mail used to contain marriage announcements and baby announcements and have been replaced by group messaging, sending a card can make a lasting positive impression.

Summer is a constant “on the go” time, if it is not the beach it is amusement parks, family gatherings and even overnight excursions. Many times with all this travel the cats are left and home, and while out of sight, they are not out of mind.
I am a cat lady and proud of it and even when we travel our cats are never far from our thoughts. I love to have cat items sprinkled throughout my daily life. I have a cat wallet that sits beside a cat umbrella in a cat bag. My girl Maggee is also my background on my phone as well as hundreds of photos on my phone.
Since I love getting cat related items as much as my cats enjoy getting toys, I was excited to be given the opportunity to review The Cat Kit, The Cat Kit is a filled with 7 adorable items for cat and human and really is “purrfect” for any cat lover.
It’s THE Scoop By K-Kat Innovations: 2015 Holiday Giveaway!!!
I have mentioned in the past that of all the duties of cat guardianship there are, cleaning the litter box is my least favorite. I have found that there are advantages, albeit unconventional. The biggest advantage is that by the daily cleaning of the litter box you can make sure that your cat is using the provided facilitates in the proper intervals and proportions. The lessor, but equally important advantage is that the feline is indebted to you and gives you extra snuggles in appreciation of your sacrifice. Alright, maybe the reality is that they do not know who cleans their box, but it still has to get done.
Back in September, I had the opportunity to review a scoop that had it’s beginnings on Kickstarter. The it’s THE scoop by K-Kat Innovations is not the previous generation’s pooper-scooper. The it’s THE scoop is able to get the smaller particles that many other scoops leave behind, and does not create any litter dust, which is good for humans and felines. This scoop has made cleaning the litter box less of a chore and more of a challenge and adventure. I am enjoying seeing that no matter what the cats leave behind this scoop can handle it. I still think that this is MUST HAVE for all feline guardians!
Cat Lady Box Monthly Subscription Review and Giveaway – October 2015
There is a trend happening around the world that I would like to mention to all of my fellow animals lovers – the dressing up of animals. The outfitting of attire for animals is not a new trend, but one that has been around as long as animals have been domesticated.
As humans we tend to put our emotions into the animals, thinking that our desires are their desires when in fact this is not the case. There is no better way to express this than in the dressing of our feline friends. I am not sure when this began, but i think it is more our desire for laughter and “awws” than for the cats themselves. I would imagine that the dressed animal is uncomfortable and a bit confused. That being said, I dream up outfits and costumes for the Muggles and plans have been made.
Since Halloween just passed I saw many dressed up animal photos on my social media feeds and I have to say, confusion aside, many were very inventive and cute outfits. In support of cat ladies I was very excited to see this months Cat Lady Box (*spoiler alert* – It contains cat ears). It makes me happy to say that this is the fifth month and the first “special editions” box. Each month it is just as good as the previous month, (see previous reviews here). Despite the previous months printed boxes, this one was the stamper version. I have to admit that I like the printed name and log on the box as opposed to the irregularity of the stamped boxes. Despite this minimal complaint the box contents were nothing short of creative and diverse.
There are few options in the picnic plate type product area, and for a member of a barbecue loving family this can be limiting. Since I am all about truth and disclosure around here I will share a story that was quite embarrassing. I am sure we all have done the precarious plate and cup dance at a BBQ. When my husband and I were dating, it was one of my first large-scale family functions (imagine about 30 people witnessed my moment) and I was doing this precarious balancing act when I tripped and down I went, plate over cup. Needless to say I was embarrassed and NEVER want a repeat of that event and lucky for me I may never have to with my latest discovery: The Great Plate!
I came upon The Great Plate while watching Food Network recently (this is how I expand my culinary wings – steal ideas from the professionals). My first thought when I saw these was that fateful afternoon six years before and how this product could have saved some embarrassment. Given my propensity for dropping plates and cups, I reached out to them and they were very gracious and sent me a couple of plates for review. I chose yellow and blue plates, as we are always and forever Charger fans.
