photography

I have a camera.. quite a nice one. I don’t know all the technicalities of it, such as terms, settings, etc.. heck I can’t even figure out how to shut the shutter sound off!

 

But; I love it. Here are some of my adventures with it. Some photos I’m quite proud of.

For those who enjoy photography, here you go!IMG_0229IMG_0190IMG_0050IMG_0056IMG_0057IMG_0061IMG_0301IMG_0302IMG_0513IMG_0515IMG_0620

Today’s horoscope:

 

“The solution to a financial issue may suddenly come to you today, Virgo. The answer will be so simple that you probably won’t understand why you didn’t figure it out sooner. That’s okay. Sometimes the best and most important lessons come to us after much trial and error, but they can turn your life around when they do. Don’t regret not knowing before. Just take what you have learned and make your situation better.”

Peeved in Public

First things first, I’m the real-est.

Haha, I love pop culture references! I just wanted to say, before starting this post,that I am a list person. I love lists. All lists. I have a list of the lists I want to publish for you on here. Not all are negative, and we all have things that irk us and one of the ways I feel better is by talking about it.

 

Okay-that was a fun fact. Now back to the post.

Pet Peeves:

1.) When you are at someone else’s house frequently, and they are constantly out of hand soap.
-Annoying bc A: I can’t wash my hands properly and now have to go (hopefully) find some dishsoap. and B: I know you don’t hand-wash on the regular and now I am fearful that every surface in your house is filled with E-coli and the like.
2.) When people assume my car is a smart car, simply because of it’s size.
-Annoying bc A: Not every non-average sized car is a smart car and you are most likely insinuating my car is less because of her size, and B: You sound uneducated and as the saying goes, when you assume you make an ass out of U and Me.
(Also should go without speaking the “small car” jokes are a peeve-I mean hey after 2 yrs it gets old, y’know?)
3.) When anyone uses their bare hands to grab a pickle out of my pickle jar.
Even if they just washed them in front of me. Bc A: Don’t be a savage if you’re old enough to open the pickle jar you’re old enough to know how to hold a damn fork and B: You are lucky enough I’m sharing just use a fork!

Let me know what some of your biggest/weirdest pet peeves are in the comments! Have a great day everyone. xoxo

I’m sure theres more. These are just big ones. Sorry for no pictures.. maybe I’ll edit this later to include some? Also, horoscope for today is:

I know your probably confused- Why would I have a panorama of Hyvee as a header on a post about hiking? Well- We stopped for food and water beforehand. (Something I definitely recommend.)

Here is what I chose!

IMG_0734

The Rockstar isn’t mine. First of all, I don’t like Rockstars. Second; I wanted pure hydration. The Mist was just for some fizz, B had purchased waters from KT after the Hyvee stop.

 

Below is my salad! I tried to go healthy (Ish) and went with a ‘Light’ ranch dressing packet… didn’t like it so much. Haha. IMG_0735

The   blueberry yogurt was extremely delicious.

We went with a (Somewhat) local trail that was right next to a prison!

I love that pic of B because it looks almost like he’s flexing. :b

 

We have decided to go on weekly hikes. It was such a good time, great exercise and it got us out of the house! (And, unless you pay for parking-its FREE!) Win in my book. 🙂

Hi, I’m Virgo Vixen.

Nice of you to stop by.
If you’re looking for random ramblings, photos, and lists-you’ve come to the right place.
Every post will included that days Virgo Horoscope as relayed from my horoscope app on my iPhone 6s. I am 21, a thrift-er, perfectionist, and cat mom. I enjoy spending countless hours on YouTube and daydreaming of moving to a warmer climate, while sipping pina coladas and getting caught in the rain. 😉

Its funny, when I was younger I always wanted to do one of two things: Become an Nurse or become a writer. Now I have the opportunity to become both.

The Aforementioned App:

I simply typed in “Horoscope” on my… app, app. (What? That is what it’s called. Well OK the ‘App Store’ app to be technical…) and it was the first option. I didn’t pick it for that reason, I actually tried a deep lavender one too and then once I downloaded this one and tried it out, I knew it was a match made in astrology. (Get it?)

  • The app background is usually pink like it’s icon, I am just feeling festive since St. Patrick’s day is tomorrow! (Maybe not by the time this posts..)
  • The icon picture is grainy because I am learning how to edit photos straight off my iPhone.. I don’t want to pay for Photoshop!
  • In case you couldn’t tell, I am a Virgo and while I may or may not believe in my actual daily horoscope, I certainly know that there is truth when they describe my sign’s characteristics.
  • It was a free app, go ahead, humor me and just try it out! I’m sure they have an android version and if they don’t, I know for a fact there are other horoscope apps for android/windows/what-have-you-not.

 

 

*DISCLAIMER* Lots of #Hashtags, cat content, and mild religious references. Leave meow or forever read about my life. Just kidding. 😉

The Kidtens.

So if you don’t know by now you will soon, that I have five fur-babies. Annnd if you couldn’t tell, they are kittens. (As seen above in my  self-proclaimed punny title.)

 

I know what you are thinking.. and yes I take the nickname “Crazy Cat Lady” in stride and I am taken. See Below

*Pokes me* Look babe, I’m George Washington!

See? Proof. Hahaha I love him. Almost as much as I love my kids. (;

 

 

Here is BooBear. I got her and her brother Oliver from an old family friend in 2014. They were born on July 1st.

IMG_0229

Named because when we first brought her home she was so scared of us (as was Oliver) and they would both hiss at us and hide! Haha. I was really sad at the time but it only lasted about two days.

 

 

This is her brother Oliver with Trouble Girl. Oliver doesn’t like to sit still nor look at the camera head-on. So this is the best I have of him so far.

IMG_0212Him and Trouble Girl have always been close, even had a litter of kittens together last May.

Since you’ve seen a sneak-peak of Trouble Girl Here she is.

IMG_0184

Trouble Girl was named because when I went to pick up Jaspur ( I had always, always wanted an orange cat growing up and Brian knew this so when his co-worker’s mom had a litter with orange ones he told me and let me go pick one up.) Annnnd she kept jumping into/sniffing my pet carrier bag so I just knew I had to take her home with me. (B was not happy at first.. but now they are buddies and he loves her just as much.) Trouble doesn’t meow normal, and its super cute the sound she does make.

 

Here is Pheebee. B got her from an ex-girlfriend who didn’t take care of her and prior to that she was abused. (SO sad.. and she didn’t take to four new kittens very well, but now they all get along. Well, Pheebs still gets annoyed time-to-time, but who wouldn’t?)

IMG_0190

If you don’t know much about cats/cat Pheebee is a mainecoon.

And last, but not least, Jaspur. I know as moms we aren’t supposed to pick favorites.. but I didn’t really pick him, he picked me! (That last parts actually true, though. I actually wanted the other orange cat from the litter but he was the runt and since it was a gamble if he would make it or not I chose Jaspur.. thank goodness.) He was named Lucy, until he grew about the biggest pair I’ve ever seen. He’s the most talkative and is still so so tiny in build!
