Follow Friday – Easter Egg Edition

29 Apr

Isobel loves to run around the house playing with the cats. In all honesty it’s about half playing, half terrorizing, but as long as it doesn’t get out of hand I’m okay with it. She thinks the cats are her best friends, and I know she considers them her partners in crime. If she’s doing something wrong and we call her on it, she’ll immediately point to the cats if they are doing something wrong, too, because if she’s going down she’s taking them with her. That’s what friends are for. I guess.

The house is for the most part packed up; we just have the large furniture left to move. Next week is going to be super fun, seeing as how I’m going back to work for one last month, and our house will be totally torn apart. Welcome to my crazy.

Have a great weekend!

What is Follow Friday? It’s a Twitter meme that I have taken a couple steps further.  See my nomination for a Shorty Award for Follow Friday here. You can read more Follow Friday goodness here. Learn more about it in my FAQ.
