The latest introduction EVER.

So I just went back to the beginning of my blog and realized that I never introduced myself or Mr. B or our furkids. I just jumped right into posting. How embarrassing. I don't know that anyone cares at this point, but I guess I will make a very late introduction post now...

I am Mrs. B. I turned 27 in June. Mr. B turned 29 in October. We met in 1999 in high school. He was a senior, I was a junior. We dated off & on (mostly on) until November 29, 2008 when Mr. B proposed in Paris. We were married at my Grandparent's ranch on April 10, 2010 and started trying to get pregnant on our honeymoon at the end of April. We are on our 9th cycle now.

We have one Mastiff named Apollo, who I talked about here. We love him so much. We call him Man Bear Dog. South Park, anyone?!

BG (Baby Girl) is almost 8 years old now. She was our first cat together. She is a total sweetheart who always pesters our guests for love. She loves to talk to us. We always say "beeeeeg" and she meows back, we say "beeeeg" again and she meows back again. That can go on as long as you want it to :)

Norman, or Normie as we like to call him, is our lazy tabby/Bengal mix. He loves to lay in his cat tree, snore loudly and rub all over my legs when I get home from work. He will be 4 yrs old in May. My, how time flies!

And last, but certainly not least.... TOM (The Old Man) He is a 75 yr old Desert Tortoise. He is an endangered species. Once a Desert Tortoise is picked up and brought to rescue, they cannot be released back into the wild. They can be "adopted" to families with the proper set-up though. He came to live with us a few years ago and we adore him. He has the funniest personality. He is hibernating right now, but this is a photo of him from the summer.

There you go! An introduction to our little family :)

Mrs. B


  1. You have such cute animals! I loooove the turtle, that is so cool! How long do they hibernate?

  2. The turtle is definitely cool! And my hubby was Man Bear Pig for Halloween last year, tee hee.

  3. TOM hibernates from around late November to early Spring. It all depends on the temperatures and the rain, so it varies each year.
