Heavy Hearts & Hectic Days

If you happen to follow me on instagram, you might have seen a photo of Skyh I posted earlier this week because she hasn't been feeling well. Skyh passed away yesterday. She was my fur-child for 6 years and K has had her for 12 years so she was his baby first. You never really hear of men having cats but he loved her to pieces.


Skyh's favorite things in life were to eat and sleep (and sometimes get into mischief) so when we noticed that she wasn't eating a few weeks ago, we got very worried and took her to the vet. All blood work tests came back fine and we were given some medicine and special food. However, nothing seemed to be getting better over the days. She was refusing water and food so becoming very weak. We had a follow up appointment set for today to do further tests and scans but she didn't make it and has gone to kitty heaven. Unfortunately we're entering another hectic weekend with heavy hearts.

Also, in the wake of the loss of Robin Williams earlier this week, I find this quote fitting.

In better and brighter news...

I ordered my bridesmaid dress for one of the 3 weddings I'm a bridesmaid in next year. It's one of those cool wrap dresses where you can choose your own style. I'm curious to see how it will look.

New towels make me happy especially when they're fresh out the wash & smell like Gain or Tide. Same goes for my bedsheets and comforter.

The highlight of my week was meeting up with two pretty bloggers yesterday for happy hour ~ Pam and Kate. I had a great time and look forward to doing it again!

I think we picked the best happy hour spot in town. You seriously can't go wrong with $5 martinis and $4 wine and small plates.

Have a great weekend everyone!

    And still so sad about Skyh :( I hope your hubby is taking it ok.

    I think that dress is going to look amazing on you! I think either the first one or the last one would be workable. Definitely can't wait to see what you decide to do!

  7. So sorry for your loss. My husband had a cat for 19 years (since he was a toddler), and I considered Leo my cat for 5.5 of those years. I was devastated when he passed away. Pets are totally a part of the family, and their losses are felt just as deeply as others. We got 2 new kitties about a year later, right after we got married, and they filled a huge hole in our hearts:)

  18. I'm sorry about the sweet kitty cat! It's always sad to lose a furry family member.

    I love your bridesmaid dress! I'd wear it the strapless/sweetheart version. After the wedding, I would probably have it shortened and then you could wear it more.
