Me and Dinkis

So this is Dinkis...our wonderful, crazy, curious kitten.

He is a little orange ball of fur...full of endless energy and has quite a fiery personality! We got him when he was only 5 weeks old. Skylar saved him from trailer life and he came and joined our family! He has been my friend and someone to play with while Skylar is gone all day. He's a cute little guy and we love his quirkiness!

Dinkis enjoys chewing on shoelaces, playing with his toys, running around the house, he goes crazy over his kitty treats, and loves eating and being involved in whatever Skylar and I are doing. He really is a Dinkis and sometimes falls off the couch and runs into walls and other such things! Skylar came up with the name, for he likes to call me a Dinkis. So its nice for me, cause I don't get called it as much now ;) 

One of our favorite games to play...haha, it just never gets old!

All in all, we love the little kitty even if he is a "Dinkis!" He brings us joy and laughs and has been my little friend all summer. He is a good kitten, doesn't damage or scratch the couch, but is known to nibble at toes and fingers! Don't worry, we're training him...gotta love the spray bottle technique. Let's just say sometimes he ends up really wet! :)

This weeks adventures

Well this weeks adventures consisted of Harry Potter movie marathons, midnight showings, fondue desserts, and a little Sunday dinner mishap! Quite the eventful week for sure. Skylar and I wanted to watch all of the Harry Potter movies before the newest one came out. So every day I run over to the local Blockbuster and grab a HP movie. Me and the guy who works there have now become good friends! Haha. On Thurs we went to the midnight showing, for those of you who don't know I am married to a Harry Potter nerd! ;) He LOVES the series and was soo excited for the new movie! He had it as a calendar event in his phone for like months! 

This is his "I'm so excited for Harry Potter face!"
  His newest dream vacation is to visit Harry Potter World in Orlando! Oh my... funny boy!

So after our late nights with HP we went to a fun little place called The Melting Pot. It's a fondue restaurant and we got this great dessert :)

So here's a good story for ya. Well let's just say anytime I cook, something always has to go wrong. Usually it's just something small and not a big deal, but Sunday was a little ordeal. So Skylar was taking a nap and I went to go check on the roast that was cooking in the oven. We only have one oven mitt, so I decided to use a towel as another one. Well the oven mitt fell out of my hand and onto the bottom of the oven. Me being the bright person I am decided to grab it with the towel. Big mistake! Towel caught on fire, so now the oven mitt and towel are burning in my hand. I scream "Fire!" waking Skylar up from his nap. I don't really know what to do with it, so I start waving it around thinking it'll go out...well that didn't happen. Eventually I throw it in the sink and turn the water on. Skylar comes running in and dumps water on the burning mess and puts it out. Meanwhile I am holding the kitty while all of this madness is going on. All in all, I ended up with a burnt and wet oven mitt and towel, a scalded counter-top, and an unhappy to be woken up husband. So that was our Sunday, in case you're wondering the roast turned out great! :)

We Have a Blog!

Yup, that's right! I finally succumbed to join in this whole blogging world! I figured with enough time on my hands this summer, I might as well. Not like we have loads of stuff going on other than Skylar working and me just hanging out all day, but hey... it gives me something to do right? I'm not going to lie, I am like so new at this and kind of don't know what's going on, but it's alright! I am slowly figuring it all out. (It took me like 4 days just to figure out the whole layout deal, haha). But I'll catch on soon enough. Don't expect like tons of posts all the time, but I will do my best to keep you guys informed on how we're doing in good ole Detroit!

P.S. For those of you who don't know, I cut my hair to like my chin and we have a new little kitten named Dinkis (further explanation for his name will come later!)
