Floyd's Friends: Nestful of Love

Thank you Friday, sir, for showing up this week.  
Come Wednesday at lunch time I was pretty certain you weren't coming at all.

In more exciting news...DIET COKE TWEETED ME YESTERDAY!!
If you know anything about me it is my INTENSE love for Diet Coke.
I try to limit myself to 1 a day (besides Thursday and my 44oz Diet Vanilla Cokes) even though I could easily drink about 87 a day.
But Wednesday afternoon I was running errands for work and decided I needed a fountain DC (because we all know that the fountain version is the best version there is).
And I tweeted (as if the world cared)
and yesterday Diet Coke tweeted back
you. guys. I just died right there on the spot with my iPhone in hand.
And then I texted Mister, Kait and Bethany to tell them that Diet Coke had tweeted me and that my life was now complete.
Because that was completely necessary information that they needed to know on their Thursday afternoon.
You're welcome, guys.
And that, my friends, is just about is exciting as my life as been lately.

Today's Floyd's Friends is a Cincinnati favorite of ours!
We are so happy to welcome Allison, Bear and Sawyer to the blog today!
I have had the wonderful pleasure of meeting Allison last summer and she is just as sweet in person as she is on her blog!
Not to mention her love for PW recipes and cooking (girl after my own heart), her adorable Etsy shop (Simply Burlap) and all around cute blog
Take it away, Allison!

*Disclaimer to all you dog lovers out there. I personally am a huge lover of both dogs and cats, but my cats are taking over this post, therefore I have no control over what comes out of their kitty mouths.*
I'm Sawyer and this is my brother Bear and we are here today to tell you why we make better pets than dogs (except for Floyd, he's pretty awesome.) Cats have a bad rep and we have no idea why. We are cuddly, cute, and we take care of ourselves. What more can you ask of a pet?
We don't ask for much...all we need is food, a few toys and kitty cuddle time. We love kitty cuddle time and don't understand why Mom and Dad press buttons on these little rectangular boxes all evening long. Can't a kitty get a cuddle in around here? After we interrupt a few times they stop pressing buttons and give in to us. We can be a little bit persistent...just a little.
Unlike dogs, we don't have to be let out and actually enjoy a little privacy..we really can take care of ourselves most of the time, but we miss mom and dad while they are gone. When mom was gone at the beach for a wedding, I missed her so much I ran out the door one night looking for her and dad didn't know until the morning. I got in a cat fight and ended up in the E.R. It was terrible and my mom is never allowed to leave me again.
We often get caught hanging out in the bathroom. It's a cool place, what can we say.
We will pretty much sleep anywhere, anytime so there is no need to waste money on a dog bed.
You don't have to walk us, however our mom and dad did try unsuccessfully to put leashes on us one day. Do they think we are stupid? Cats can't be controlled because we know what we like and how we like it. While we may get sassy from time to time, we really do love our mom and dad and each other. If mom and dad ever decide to get a dog we promise to love it too, especially if he is as cool as Floyd.

Thanks for having us Floyd. Now go tell my Mom how cute you thought we were.

Oh Bear and Sawyer, you may be swaying us. 
You guys are awfully cute!!
Now go over to Allison's blog, take a look around and say hi!
Check out her Etsy shop too for some adorable banners (great for photo shoots, baby/briday showers, birthday parties, anything!)

Have a fabulous weekend, friends!

I have a Diet Coke obsession, too! I also limit it to one a day... but that first sip is like crack to me! Ahh so good!

Erin said...

Haha- I love your Diet Coke obsession and would totally get pumped about a tweet from them. Isn't it funny how tweets from 'celebs' or companies can make a day?!

I may have freaked out once when the Newport Aquarium tweeted me back and said the penguins missed me ;) lol!
