Coco-Nut! + Cake for a Cause
January 16, 2012
Aw, what’s cuter than a kitten to brighten your Monday morning? Hey kids, this is the big news around here, guess who is the newest family member in our house?
Yep, there’s a new 8 week old critter in our house, we found Coco on Craigslist and she has the best stripes in town! Plus she’s already showing signs she’s a good mouser…
I never shared on the blog, but we had to put both our 17 year old cat and 14 year old dog down last year, very very sad. *sniffle* The house has felt a little empty for many months and the kids have been begging for a kitty so we brought home this gray tabby on Saturday, she’s so cute!
I’ve barely seen my children all weekend, they’ve been up in the bathroom where she’s living for now, doting on her every “need”.
Look at that kitten’s face, poor thing. What is the caption in this photo, what is she saying? “Somebody save me from this bondage” or “Gee I’m not really a fan of pastel pink” or “Was that the crack of a can of kitty pâté?” Likely all of the above. :)
As you can see from the grin on her face, my girl is bursting with the pride of new motherhood and she’s inviting all her friends to come look at her new baby. I confess, it’s really nice having Coco around the house…
In other news, the powder room makeover is done! I went with the darker color on the walls (oooohhh drama!). And we’re in the midst of Operation Office Organization too, I’ll shoot some pictures and post them soon!
Finally, I wanted to share this wonderful cause with you, I just love this idea. One of my sponsors Love Feast Table is raising money for Feed My Starving Children. For every Coffee Cake sold from their shop through the end of January, $3 is donated to Feed My Starving Children, a non-profit organization that ships meals to over 70 countries around the world. The all natural nut free coffee cake currently comes in 4 flavors Signature, Pumpkin, Chocolate Chip, and Triple Berry, you can buy them in the Love Feast Shop.
They also are sending a traveling cookbook around the country to many bloggers including Pioneer Woman, where each blogger cooks a recipe, signs the book and sends it off to the next blogger. The signed cookbook will be auctioned off to raise money for the Feed the Starving Children cause, you can follow its journey here.
Did y’all watch the Golden Globes last night? What did you think of the fashion? Lots of belted gowns and bold red lips! I can’t wait to read all the fashion columns today, who did you think was the best dressed lady and gent?
