Favorite Thing Friday: An Unlikely Pair

Standard

Every once in a while I’ll buy something silly for no reason other than it’s really cute and I can’t resist. In this case, I came face to face with a plush toy of Grumpy Cat. My credit card was out of my wallet before I could rationally understand that I don’t need this incredibly cute cat and that I should save my money for something else (like yarn).

After searching through about twenty-five Grumpy Cats on the shelf, I settled on the one that had both the best likeness to the real Grumpy Cat and the cutest face. No easy feat to say the least, but I ended up with a fantastically crabby stuffed animal cat. Yes, I realize how ridiculous this is, but rational thought never kicked in while I was at the store.

On the way home, I decided I had the perfect place for him to sit. Not only would he be warm and comfortable, but he would also have a friend. At the foot of the bed in the guest room there is a thick knit wool blanket (yup, I made it) and one very adorable plush Simon’s Cat.

The two look like enemies with one grimacing at life and the other with wide eyes and that goofy grin, but they seem to share their space quite nicely. Aren’t they just the sweetest pair?

It’s hard not to smile whenever I walk into the guest room to grab my laptop!  I guess I’ll never be too old for toys.

Favorite Thing Friday: Pug Face

Standard

A cute, bug-eyed pug has been roaming around my house this week. My in-laws are on vacation and we got to babysit their adorable pug. He’s been snuggling with us on the couch and snorting up a storm when he grabs a toy and plays. I’m sucker for that smashed-in face and googly eyes that never seem to stop moving!

This is one cute pug face . . .

My dogs are both pretty old, so having a younger dog around has been really wonderful. It’s nice to see my Tough Little Dog and the Old Man do more than sleep all evening! We have to bring him back on Saturday, but I’m hoping they’ll let us keep him until Sunday. He’s too cute!
