The End of The World

Matthew 24:36
"But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of Heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only."
Just thought I'd share this today, since it is "the end of the world."
I don't know what it is about snow that makes me so happy. Maybe it's the fact that being from Arkansas, we only have limited exposure (if any) to it growing up.
Snow is beautiful to me and it covers all of the worn grass and trees with a gorgeous blanket of white. God knew we needed a little beauty on our "last day."
Somewhat ironic that in the midst of all this "end of the world" talk and all the evil going on in the world, God showed us a little love by sending us some snow.

Shout out to my girl Brenna! Pictures courtesy of her Wisconsin-ism.
We can't all be blessed to be born and live in the South. Thanks for the pics though, my little Yankee friend!
Here's what we experienced here in good ole Kentuckiana!
Hope everyone has a blessed day! And enjoy the snow!

The Beginning of the End

So, for those of you who don't know me, my name is Jaime. I've decided to start blogging after following several blogs and

The name of my blog comes from the countless stories I have/will encounter with my cat Toby (pictured below).

Yes, yes he does have crossed eyes. Although Toby is cute, he has had his share of terrible tales. Hence the pun of the name of the blog.

To start this blog off right, let's delve into Toby's most special tale. The day Toby swallowed a nerf dart head.

Do you see that little blue rubber head? Yes. Well that would be the part that Toby ate. After three vet visits, too many throw up sessions to count, and a $1500 exploratory surgery later...Toby is alive and well.
Now, before you go off thinking I'm some kind of crazy cat lady, this blog is not just about my cats (yes, that is plural...and before you ask, I have two). Meet Tillie.

Like I was saying earlier, this blog will be about more than just my cats. I hope to share valuable shopping knowledge, great deals I've come across, and great personal stories for your amusement.
Oh, and I almost forgot...the title "the beginning of the end" is in honor of the alleged end of the world tomorrow.
Hope you enjoy and feel free to comment!
