Candid Carrie's Friday Foto Finish Fiesta

Well I am a bit cat crazy right now so here's my submission for today's foto finish.

These are fotos of my family.


Sadie (BTW at the Vet today she weighed 1.5 lbs- Vet thinks she will be fine.)


Sadie and my thumb

This is my mother, me, my sister-in-law (to be) Alison, and her sister-in-law (Blechy) I mean Becky (haha--if you knew her you would understand) and my brother's new Mother-in-law.

Yes, those are my sagging titas, which is one of the reasons my friend Sarah is taking me bra shopping this Sunday.


Carrie said...

Your cats are adorable and your titas are ginormous. Thank you, Sara, for pulling those together and up front where they belong ;)

Cute Kitty photos!!!!!Give them a hug for me!!

Jessica said...

love the furr babies. :)

Kandace said...

Look at all those kitties!

Lauren said...

Carrie, I will pass on your t/y to Sarah! :-) Would you believe I am only a 38B, although Sarah swears I am not that large and will be proven correct on Sunday.

Leezee52 - DONE! :-)

Jessica - Sounds like a new toy. Hmmm, let me know when they hit the stores. HEEHEE!

Kandace, Actually only three, but yes, thank you for reminding me that I am now officially the crazy old cat lady ;-)

Drowsey Monkey said...

lol @ titas. Never heard them called that before. Have fun bra shopping! They can be so expensive.

Okay...now to the important stuff...the cats :) OMG ... they are so sweeeeet! Love em! :) That one of her on the chair, omg, she looks so itty bitty!

Lauren said...

Drowsey, pronouced TEEETAAAAS! HEEHEE! Oh yes. Good word for them. HAHA! Yes this is going to be an expensive purchase but I do seem to need some help at this stage in the game so it's time to make that investment.

Sadie is a tiny one for sure. 6 weeks old now and only 1 and a half lbs. :-)

Gypsy said...

My favourite is the pic of KC next to the phone but they're all beautiful little fur children and you should be proud.

Lauren said...

Gypsy, You mean you didn't think the one of my gynormous TITAS was the cutest photo of them all? :-O

I love the way you spell favorite! :-)

Jessica said...

your furr babies are your kids. :) You're welcome and thanks for viewing my blog.

Hippie Family... said...

What a cute baby!! love the pics... too cute!

Lauren said...

Jessica, let's hope they remain my only furry babies...if you get what I mean. When I was born Mom said I had hair on my back and stomach. ICK!

Hippie family, Thanks for stopping by. Glad you liked.

Ok Ok I was reading your entire blog and I was looking and looking....hint #1..."G-D" only Conservative or Orthodox knows to write this way. Hint# 2 "Titas" I learned this from my husband who is Sephardic...you're M.O.T...me too. Cool

Lauren said...

Leezee52 -Actually, not MOT at all. Furthest from it. I am however EXTREMELY spiritual. Personally I am not one for following too many rituals or rules per se, but I totally respect those who do. I live in a community that has a large MOT community. I like the idea behind not writing the full name of g-d on something that might be tossed out. It's very respectful.

Titas, wasn't sure how to spell it, but pronounced TeeTaaaas. I heard this from some friends years ago and thought it was the funniest sounding word. It's a variation for tities.

But yes, I am a Jewish chick! And yes I identify with that strongly. But there is also a very strong hippie in my attitudes for life, in being and independent thinker.

I hope you will always enjoy my writings and rants...because they will come. The kitties are my main obsession right now, but other times will be writing about Israel or my thoughts on a date I met and how it affected me or pissed me off etc...:-)

I was born into a reformed family...where we went to synogogue on Kippur and after we went out for lunch...then I met Moe and he is from an orthodox family but over the years..."28" we went from being kosher and observant to doing a few holidays.... mostly for the kids. So I get where you're coming from...it's nice to meet someone from the same side of the railroad tracks as me.
