The Newest Addition to My Life: Leslie Knope

As I mentioned briefly when we having coffee last weekend, I got a cat! She is five years old, rescued from a cat specific rescue league. Her name is Leslie Knope (but really goes by baby or sweetheart) and she is the most precious thing ever.

She doesn’t like to be held but she need to constantly be at my side.

 

 

If she’s not playing with my makeup brushes or jumping on and off the bed she is sound asleep at my feet or at my side.

 

So this is my kitty, Leslie.

Late Night Blogging with Mary: Part 5

Okay so I’m regretting numbering these. Like say I blog for another 80 years, Late Night Blogging with Mary (hereinafter referred to as LNBM) there could be hundreds of these, that’ll be embarrassing, but I’ll cross that bridge when I get there.

Can I just say, how much I miss my best friend. I’ve been home for a while now, I’m not really sure how long, but I’m still not used to Eric just not being around. It’s weird going from constant to phone calls and text messages.

I really want a cat. I think it’s because I’m not allowed to have one. Growing up we had my dog, and then he died this year so now I just want something and I think I want a cat because I never had one. Like they just look so cuddly. It’s kind of like when I get baby fever, I think I have cat fever. All I want to do is cuddle cats.

It’s very interesting to me what is sold for dorm rooms. Like there are things that I see and think “Oh yes, that would be useful if my room was three times bigger.” I feel like it’s kind of a ploy to get freshman to buy things they don’t need and won’t use, but that’s just my opinion.

Pinterest moms. HOW. I love to craft but those Pinterest moms are insane, like in the best way possible. I typically assume they are stay at home moms who have a lot of time- I’m probably wrong but I have created a stereotype in my mind that I’m going to stick with. Some of those crafts are just insane. I am curious as to if it actually saves money. Sometimes I think what it costs to make some of the stuff you might as well just buy it, however, that defeats the fun of it. I want to be a Pinterest mom, minus the stereotype that they are stay at home moms. They are admirable and creative. I wonder if their colleges had a Martha Stewart major…

Okay I’m cutting it short tonight. I’m tired and ready for bed.

Average Adventure: Animal Kingdom and Animal Kingdom Lodge

So I’ve edited a few more pictures from Animal Kingdom and Animal Kingdom Lodge and I decided that there are way too many for just my blog. So the rest (of the ones I like) will be up on my Flickr within the next few days. To be honest, I’m not fully sure how that website works, but here’s the link for it: My Flickr.

Here are a few of my favorite pictures from the trip. Honestly, most of them are giraffes (if not all). I’m literally obsessed with them. These are also just from the ones I have on my computer so far, there’s like another 500 on my camera from all of the places we went.

P1080325This was from the balcony of the room we stayed in. When I say this was a dream come true for me, it really was. For as long as I can remember I have always loved giraffes, I remember being like three or four and my aunt trying to figure out what sound they made before we went to the zoo. I’m not sure if that was the moment that they became my favorite animal, but that’s the first time I remember loving them.

Again this was taken from the balcony. I found it really cool how they fed the animals. They put food in the most random spots for the animals to get, it was hilarious watching the giraffes trying to pick food up from the ground.

Another one from the balcony. I cannot get over how majestic and beautiful they look just walking around. I would never get tired of looking at them, I could sit on that balcony for hours no matter how hot it was. It was incredible.

P1080251

It’s just amazing what they can do. They just reach up to the trees and eat. It’s breathtaking.

P1080228

This was the window on the Safari tour in Animal Kingdom. I thought it looked cool and kinda old, and kind of also a little authentic.

P1080198

Here’s an elephant to break up all the giraffes. They were also pretty cool on the Safari, but not as exciting for me.

P1080179

This was also on the Safari. It was a little harder to get pictures there because of the jerky movements. I was so happy in the moment, the one on the left is a baby. They might both be babies, but for sure the one on the left is.

If I would’ve been sitting on the other side of the bench during the Safari I would have been able to touch this one. On my bucket list is feeding one, touch one would also be amazing. It was so close to the jeep/truck/tour vehicle.

P1080136

This is from the walkout section of the hotel. It’s like this area where you can get the closest to the animals at our section of the hotel (we stayed in the newer “Kidani Village” area). I got some really amazing shots there.

The interactions among the giraffes were so peaceful. The zebras were ramming heads so were the other animals I didn’t care as much about, but the giraffes just grazed gracefully.

P1080128

 

Sometimes they would just walk places together or run around together. I thought it was really cute.

P1080122

I can’t get over how pretty they are.

P1080121

 

Okay so as not to overwhelm this is the last one I’ll post. I just love the patterns and the details that they possess. It’s just pure and complete beauty that they are completely unaware of, it’s just breathtaking.

I will be uploading all of the pictures at once onto flickr so it probably won’t be for a few days, but keep a look out for those!
