Who’s Who

Here’s the lowdown on the people (and animals) who make frequent recurrences in my posts.

Joshua

Joshua

My wonderful husband! He's a Mercedes-Benz technician, gearhead and country boy trapped in the body of a geek. We met and started dating our senior year of high school. Six years later we tied the knot on our dating anniversary. His pride and joy comes in the form of a 1985 Mercedes-Benz 300TD station wagon.

Dani

Dani

My younger (and only) sister and best friend. A psych graduate from UCSC, this swing dancing, cheese-loving yogi currently occupies our guest bedroom. When she's not putting her degree to work she can be found blogging about curvy girl fashion and loving yourself at She Wears Floral.

Izzie

Izzie

AKA: Kitty, Lovie, Izzie-girl, Izz, Fuzzy. She's a calico cat that loves laps and drools with affection. I got her my senior year of high school, only a few months after Joshua and I started dating. She and Mr. Big are the most affectionate and compete for laps and attention.

Bella

Bella

AKA: Bella-bee, Bella-button, Bee-boo, Bee, Fluffy. She's a medium hair calico we rescued when she was two. She came to live with Joshua and I when we first moved in together. She's our resident shy diva and hall monitor (she'll swat at your feet if you walk by too fast).

Tucker

Tucker

AKA: Tuckles, Buddy, Puppy-bear. He's our short hair border collie whom we got a few months before we were married. He loves going for walks, playing with his little brother, and enjoys a good dollop of coconut oil with his dog food. Tucker likes to keep a low profile online, but he can be found on Pack.

Mr. Big

Mr. Big

AKA: Big, Weenie, Weenie-face, Wee-wee. Our youngest furbaby is our smooth mini dachshund named after Sex & the City's leading man. He's definitely the baby of the family and gets away with almost everything. You can follow his adventures on Pack and his very own Instagram.
