Meow Meow Meow Meow

Meet our new addition to the family
Long story short, my grandpa who lives in Spanish
Fork called Thursday and said that someone had dropped off and abandoned 7 kittens in his field and asked if we wanted one. I said yes so he picked the cutest one and sent the rest to the animal shelter. And let me say, he picked the perfect one. I am smiling ear to ear writing this because I am just so happy with her! She goes through cycles throughout the day: extra hyper, jumping, pouncing, attacking and playing with anything and everything (sometimes just the air around her) followed by a crash which involves her cuddling up to us and sleeping. The minute we brought her home she went potty in the litter box. Also, she has already taught herself to climb up anything, she will even try to climb up our bare legs which kind of hurts, but we let her try. She barely cries when we go to bed, and she is downright ADORABLE! We named her Kona because as you may know, Ed is a trithlete who aspires to one day go to the Ironman World Championships held in Kona, Hawaii. But that's not it....she has a black spot on her back that looks exactly like the Ironman symbol! I will post pictures of it later. When we saw it, we just had to name her Kona! Anyone who lives close is welcome to come over anytime to play with her, she would love it. Welcome to the Christenson family, Kona, we couldn't love you more.

A Bug Connoisseur

Things that will get me through this semester:

1. Love notes from Ed in my lunch on the days that he knows I'm stressed out.

2. My shows that start in the fall: Parenthood, Glee, and House to name a few.
Looking forward to finally getting back to Georgia for Christmas.

3. Thinking of buying a kitten? maybe just maybe :) I know that I have said I hate cats my whole life, but they are really starting to grow on me. Ed and I feel the need for a new the animal form.

4. CREAMIES! This is a box of 24 with only one left.....we have had this box for a week and a half, that's scary. We do need to cut back to one creamie per day, but we will definitely be buying more of these boxes.

5. Awesome friends: Janie and Sam sent me about 20 pictures that they took all around GA with a mini-me that they made. It was so hilarious, I was dying laughing when I got it. They went to my house, the ballet studio, my high school, the place where I had my bridal shower, Berry college, and took pictures with all of their dogs that I dearly miss. Here are two of my favorites. It's nice to know they haven't forgotten about me. This first one is pretty creepy.

6. And lastly, my sister and parents come to Utah in a week and a half which makes me very very happy.
