2 Month Ad Giveaway and Guest Post by Melissa!

Happy Hump Day, ya'll.

Exciting things are happening today.
For the first time ever, I am having a guest blogger!
I know, it's pretty amazing.
And not only that, but Melissa is giving away 2 months free of ad space on her blog!
So read, enjoy, and go show her some love!



Hey Friends!  My name is Melissa and I blog over at Forever and A Day.  

I could go on and on about myself; how I live in Los Angeles (the best city IMO) with my husband (who works for Disney and has better hair than I do... seriously he could be an herbal essence hair model), how I love going to new restaurants and bars, hiking in Malibu, reading pretty much any book I can get my hands on, oh and of course blogging... but I'm not.  I'm going to talk about who's REALLY "lovin' life" these days and those people, my friends, would be our cats.  

Yup, cats.  Plural.  

You know how some women can't go to a mall without bringing home a new outfit or a killer pair of shoes?  That's exactly how I am, but replace mall with animal shelter / pet store and outfit with feline.  

That kind of explains how in the middle of this fabulous L.A. life that I'm currently living, I ended up in an apartment with 5 cats.  

Like a good sample sale or an enticing happy hour, I just couldn't help myself, I had to help them.  

I know I'm crazy, but I've been like this my entire life.  Over the past 25 years, I've taken in cats, dogs, hamsters, lizards, guinea pigs, and rabbits.  I "adopted" a bat at Carlsbad Caverns (and named him Carl, obviously) and manatee from Florida (named Manny, duh.)  

Our home has always been a halfway house of sorts for animals, some we keep forever, some we just help find a home when no one else can/ will.  

But these kitties of ours mine?  They have it pretty good.  

I mean check out Olivia up there.  She gets kisses every day whether she wants them or not.  THAT my friends, is the face of a happy cat.  

Sunshine gets regular kitty therapy sessions from Tim.  

 Their days are spent sleeping all day, while I toil around the house.  Note Stormy sleeping in a bag of laundry.  

Diego uses my pants as a pillow.  

And Dharma, aka Moo Moo is always well fed.  (She prefers the broccoli cheddar soup.)  

It must be good to be a cat.  

But really it's pretty good to be you guys too, because today I'm giving away two months, TWO!, of medium ad space on my blog!  

And just in case the crazy cat pictures weren't enough to entice you to come say hi, here's some other fun things I blog about.  

Tim and I recently had our wedding featured in The Knot magazine and online, so I bombarded my readers with wedding pictures.  

We go to Disneyland a lot and I'm writing a series about the best places for adults to have fun at The Disneyland Resort.  Drinking in The Tiki Room?  Kinda.  

We travel a lot, and I love to photograph the heck out of our vacations, like this one to Big Sur.  

Oh yeah, and we have the world's cutest nephew, Max.  

There's a lot going on over at Forever and A Day.  Come on over and say hi and share your thoughts with me on my favorite topics like apartment living, marriage, and fashion.  

I hope to meet you soon!
