Motley Cat loves to cuddle with Bosco. She rubs up against her, flips herself over Bosco sometimes when she gets over-zealous, kisses, and cuddles with Bosco. She's much more affectionate with Bosco than with us. I'm only a little jealous.

Photographing the two of them being sweet can be tricky. Both of them know what a camera is and even know when we're taking pictures with our phones. They don't often allow us to capture their sweetness on camera.

Sunday they were being so adorable and even tolerated a couple of photographs.

Mardi Gras

Although I had hoped we'd be living in New Orleans for this Mardi Gras we had a small celebration at the house.

And by small I mean three people, including us, shrimp creole from a package and nutella bread pudding. Still though, it was fun to celebrate with a close friend who loves New Orleans just as much as we do.

Valentine's 2012

This Valentine's day Bryan had to leave for a work trip on the actual day of Valentine's. So the day before I came home from work to find a fort in our dining room. We had a nice dinner at Alchemy and came home to watch Downton Abbey in the fort.

The next day I came home from work to an empty house but a little gift.

Even though we both think the holiday is a little Hallmark-ish, its fun to do something special for each other.

Jackson Day trip

Bryan had to go to Jackson for a anniversary party for one of his accounts. Knowing I love Jackson (in short spurts), he convinced me to come with him. Actually, I was sick all week and it really came down to which was a lesser evil. Staying home all weekend alone or going on a trip with him despite being sick and super tired. So we went.

It was actually a really nice little getaway, despite the creepy hotel. Dinner Friday night at the Mayflower, breakfast at Primo's, tacos at Babalu.

It has been a couple of years since I've really been back in Jackson for any time longer than 30 minutes. I wish we could have seen a few friends, but there is always next time.

New Orleans - Feb 2012

Almost a year to the day we went back to New Orleans after our first trip (as a married couple). (We went one time together when we were dating for my friend's Heather's wedding, but we didn't have too much time to see the city on that trip.)

This time Bryan was working, seeing accounts. We managed to attend a King Cake Death Match, try a couple new restaurants and bars, and be in a movie.
