photo share: final summer zoo visits

It's hard to believe that summer zoo visits are over, even though it's almost October already. I made it to the Milwaukee County Zoo five times this summer, which is pretty cool. I edited the last couple sets from this summer and am sharing a few of those photos today. Enjoy.

Peacock babies! There are tons of peacocks at the Milwaukee Zoo that roam all over the grounds, but I'd never seen babies before.

This was my first time seeing the bird show.

Did you get to the zoo this summer?

Saturday is Caturday

Are you ready to start your weekend with some amazing cat photos?

They boys are still getting a lot of enjoyment out of the computer monitor packaging.

What? My brother is fine in there.

 Checking out the pictures on the wall while balancing on some notebooks and the back of my desk chair.

Apollo pulls off the balancing on the back of the chair act much more gracefully than Ares.

Ares has been fully embracing the awesomeness of the laundry baskets lately.

Apollo spent a solid half an hour hanging out in the empty laundry basket on the dryer during part of the washer and dryer cycles.

Ares sleeping with us tongue sticking out. Priceless.

Last weekend Jake bought our kitty clan an S toy. It's already been well worth every dollar.

The possibilities are endless.

Recently after Apollo watched part of a Boardwalk Empire episode with us, we decided to find a video on YouTube that he might like. We settled on this one. To say that it's been a big hit is an understatement. I feel like the bad parent letting them stare at the TV for a half an hour at a time while I'm working, but they love it so much.

I didn't want to get closer to Ares to take the picture because he most likely would have moved before I snapped the shot, but he's too adorable sitting on the S like that.

Back on the computer monitor Styrofoam. It makes a great kitty bed.

So does a laundry basket.

Take that, S.
What have your cats been up to lately?

Friday Feature: black and silver

This Friday Feature is in honor of a couple of my newest jewelry shop items. Do you remember when I floated the idea of black and silver celestial pieces? A lot of people were on board with that idea so I went with it.

(Blue and purple sets are in stock right now, too. If you've been thinking about picking up any of these pieces, I'd highly recommend doing it before the holidays so you don't end up with a made to order wait.)

I've found some other black and silver fashion pieces that you could rock with these of these celestial items. Enjoy.

Do you ever wear or work with the black and silver combination?

S is for Solvay Coke

Are you ready for another round of Alphabe Thursday? Let's go!

Do you remember my first photo share of the Solvay Coke & Gas Site? If not, no worries. I got to make a second excursion there last month and am sharing some of my photos from that trip today. If you want more information about this site, check out the links that I included in my first post. Enjoy.
