The Black & Whites Return!

Happy wordless (wordy, whatever!) Wednesday guys! Hope everyone had an amazing unofficial last weekend of summer. We were pretty lazy! Basil, Willow, Sebastian, Nate, and myself spent the weekend relaxing and getting settled into our new house. Now that the work week is in full swing its been hard not to be our lazy weekend selves.

This morning I was able to catch something on video that has eluded me. No, its not the Loch ness monster or big foot, even though you would think it was with how hard its been to capture it. It’s a video of Basil and Sebastian playing under our coffee table!

Usually they start playing and I reach for the camera but the second I point it in their direction all movement stops. You would think these two were professional mimes or something!

That didn’t happen today! Enjoy this video because I don’t know when I’ll be able to get another one!

Black and white brothers! Cat & Dog!
Coming at the end of the week is our FreshPet Vital Raw review and a few photos of Basil’s new “dog cave” in the new house. Make sure to check back for those!

Do you have cats & dogs? Do they love to play with each other?

Basil’s Favorite Things — Pink Case NY

TGIF! This week has some how gone by super slow and ultra fast all at the same time. So much has been happening and we have been so very busy. On top of all of it Nate and I got new phones. That being fun, and exciting and all but that also means needing new accessories. My husband found his new case right away. It has everything that he enjoys which includes typography, and dinosaurs.

For me that search was a little more intense. I was looking everywhere online and after more than a few days of spending way to much time on the internet I found it.

The search came to an end on Etsy. The place where all unique, beautiful handmade items go to find their forever homes.  My fabulous new iPhone 6 plus case was found at Pink Case NY. It was perfect for me. With the combination of Starbucks, and an adorable Boston terrier, I was hooked! 

My new phone case is not only super cute but really durable. The price was great (Just about $20!) and shipping was quick and easy. I highly recommend checking Pink Case NY on Etsy. They not only have Boston terrier cases but almost every dog breed under the sun. Also, if you are more of a cat/bunny/penguin/horse/sloth/bear person they have you covered too!

Tomorrow I’ll be posting about a few upcoming trips that we are really excited about. Hope you guys are enjoying your Friday!

Super Snuggle Bros.

Sometimes I walk into my living room and everything is normal. Sometimes I walk into my living room and its cuteness overload! Sebastian decided he wanted to snuggle with his brother and Basil was not complaining! They were even so comfortable they let me move the arm chair they were cuddled on, to get better lighting, of course. I’m so glad I was able to capture this moment on camera. I think this gives me an amazing Halloween 2014 costume idea. Yes… Yes… Everything is coming together!
