Thanks, Brooke!

>> Wednesday, May 27, 2009

The time has officially come to start a blog. This will come as a shock to many of you who have written me off as an incurable "non-blogger." Here I am turning over a new leaf, biting the proverbial bullet, and taking the inevitable plunge. It went something like this......

{a few days ago..}

Brooke: "Cat, why the heck don't you have a blog?"

Cat: "Oh, you know, blah, blah, blah; let's get to the point, I am too LAZY to start one."


Brooke: "Cat, here's your blog that I started for you. No more lame excuses, now."

Cat: "So I guess this means I'll have to find my camera and resolve to take more than two pictures per year."

Brooke: "Yep."

So, as my first official act on my blog (I still can't believe I have one) I want to thank the lovely Brooke Oldroyd for giving me the final (and quite substancial) push onto the blogging scene. You are amazing. I really am going to try.........

I could not be more excited about this, no really I'm flipping out!!


Amy and the boys May 27, 2009 at 2:29 PM  

Woohoo! makes so much sense after leaving all your beloved friends behind in Milwaukee. :D

I'm always thinking about checking your blog and repeatedly disappointed when i remember there isn't one- HA! A big thanks to Brooke.

Btw, your boys look like little twins in their red shirts!!

And, one more thing- I thought your email was a prego announcement. hahahaha LOVE YOU!

What adorable boys! I can't believe how old they are. Glad you're blogging!!

Heather Dawson May 27, 2009 at 3:02 PM  

When did your name morph into Cat?

Robs May 27, 2009 at 3:48 PM  

Thank you thank you thank you! I'm loving it!

Catherine Call May 27, 2009 at 3:51 PM  

It has always been Cat (since childhood). YOU girls in Milwaukee just never caught on.

Aubrie May 27, 2009 at 4:37 PM  

Yea Cat!! I can't tell you how excited I am that you have a blog! Thanks Brooke for flipping over the leaf Cat was standing on : )

Nic@Nite May 27, 2009 at 5:19 PM

Dinah May 27, 2009 at 6:54 PM  

Seriously thrilled to read, look and experience your blog! Welcome to the blogging world...

EmmaJ May 27, 2009 at 7:21 PM  

So glad to know you are all alive.

EmmaJ May 27, 2009 at 7:21 PM  

Oh, and thanks to your friend Brooke for pushing you over the edge.

Kim Cannon May 28, 2009 at 8:58 AM  

Yeah! I am so happy you have a blog! Way to go Brooke! I will look for updates often!

Jen T May 28, 2009 at 9:34 AM  

I'm so glad! Whip out your camera... and you'll be so glad you did. Blogs are a great family journal -they're so fun to look back on and have things documented.

Jen I May 28, 2009 at 1:00 PM  

Yea! I would probably never hear from you otherwise! At first I thought the title was cattle call and I thought THAT was really funny. :)

CK Black Family May 28, 2009 at 3:04 PM  

Way to bite the bullet Cat!! Love that we can stay connected this way. Cute, cute boys! (And you, woo woo!)

Tysons May 28, 2009 at 7:56 PM  

Congrats. Now to just keep it updated. I am the worst. We can only do our best right? Happy Birthday to Brady. Sam had the same birthday cake--special order.

Winnie May 28, 2009 at 11:38 PM  

Blogs are so '03, you really need to be on Facebook... wait, that was '07, for '09 it's Twitter... better late than never I guess. Good to see you guys are doing well.


Laura May 30, 2009 at 5:38 PM  

OMG - too good to be true!

JoAnna May 31, 2009 at 10:45 AM  

And off to such a great start! You are one of the most entertaining people I know! And I LOVE LOVE LOVE your guts!!

Brett and Melissa June 1, 2009 at 1:14 PM  

Yea Cate!!! I would love to see more posts of you guys and if having your own blog helps more than the family ones then GREAT! The pictures you have on here so far are so cute. If blogging is really tedious to you, you could try setting aside a specific time for it, like Fast Sundays or something to start with. It's fun for all of us to see how you are doing, and you will probably enjoy looking back on your old posts of the boys, in the future too!

marticall June 1, 2009 at 2:32 PM  

Love the pictures!!!!Happy Birthday Brady. Fun name for your blog :) Love you guys

Rachel Hogge June 11, 2009 at 3:24 PM

(If you have and life's been busy, no worries.) I accidentally put my phone through the washer and I'm not sure I have your most recent numbers (I see you're pretty popular *24 comments* maybe I need to take a number ;) Luv ya and miss you tons! CALL ME!
