Sunday Selfies: Week #99
Well, the boomers have already started here on Caturday night. Pffft. We had a patriotic post for Caturday and will have one tomorrow for the holiday. But today’s selfie has nothing to do with patriotism but rather love. That’s right, it’s another post about my marriage to Sampy.
Mom tried forever and ever to get me to take a special selfie to show off my wedding gift. Let’s just say that I was not cooperative. This is the collage she put together from the less than optimal photos. I am displaying my tortitude in the top one.
I’m guessing you probably can’t tell what Mom’s trying to get me to show off, so here’s a photo of the world’s most meowvolous gift EVER!
Check out that bling on the collar buckle and the S ♥ A. You can see a bit of my new collar in my three selfies.
Did you notice the ring setting atop the collar? That’s right…we had a double-ring ceremony. My ring says, Sampy ♥ Astrid, and Sampy’s says, Astrid ♥ Sampy. There are close-up photos below. I apologize for my mom’s less than stellar photography skills. She doesn’t know how to use Dad’s fancy equipment, and he is still away.
Mommy had the rings made so she and Mom Emily could wear them if they want. Mom has mine on right now, but when the new ID tag she has ordered for my collar arrives, she will hang the two together on the collar. Mom said that I probably won’t wear my blingy collar everyday as I have two other collars with ID tags. Mom found the collar I recently lost in Dad’s closet (of course, after she replaced it).
Mom has added Sampson to our The Felines page as he now is an official member of the family. She will get his vital statistics on the page very soon. I am now identified as Astrid Blue Hall on that page. To avoid confusion Mauricio, my sisfurs and I still will be known collectively as Kitties Blue.
So this may be my final post about Samy’s and my wedding. Allie and Mau are scheduled to be married at Cat Scouts on July 23. I suspect they soon will be getting all the attention.
This is week #99 of our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. We are a bit in shock that we are quickly going to reach two years of selfies. And that’s not all that’s coming up: our fourth blogoversary is later this month, and sometime before that, we will hit 1,000 posts. I’m not sure we can handle this much excitement. MOUSES!
Anyhoo, we hope you’ll join us for the blog hop and invite all your friends to hop on board. The link is below as is the code if you’d like to post the hop on your blog. If you decide to do so, please link back to The Cat on My Head and or display our badge. That will warm our furry little hearts and make Mom very happy.
One or more of us will be back tomorrow to share The Fourth will all our American friends.
Purrs and paw-pats, Astrid with my undying love and oodles of kisses for my sweet Husband
Ee are here, and doing out best to visit everyone from San Francisco airport. We got here way to damned early but I will do my visiting now heh heh!!

My dearest Astrid, I am so glad that you like your collar. You look absolutely stunning in it – though you would look stunning in anything. My mom says that we will be posting about BlogPaws and our wedding this week – aiming for Friday. Mom also says that she is wearing her ring right now, and has every day since she got it. She loves it, and I do too. Thank you so much. I am sending all my love and a quadrillion kisses!!! XOXOXOX, Sampy

Ah, the fancy cam issue. I’m dealing with that here, too! My experiments with the new dslr camera are coming along, but I have yet to take a shot that I feel is as excellent as it could be. It’s a challenge!
But camera issues aside, kitty looks like a beautiful bride with all of her bling!

Your Selfies are very heartshapy nice, Astrid and your collar…it’s so beautiful that I hardly have words for it. We are hopping over to your wedding ceremony, I hope it is still there 😉 Pawkisses for a wonderful Sunday 🙂 <3
My goodness what a gorgeous collar and such beautiful rings for the double ring ceremony! Such a special thing and oh so romantic! I decided to do my “Patriotic” selfie for today’s hop because it’s the last hop before the 4th……we had boomers last night too which didn’t bother ME since I’m so hard of hearing but Mom was not happy about being kept from sleeping by all the booms! Happy Sunday KB Crew!
Your “heart” selfies are very nice, and your collar beautiful ! Our 4th of July is on the 21!
hopefully it will not rain when they start the parade !
I love that collar!
Sometimes you just gotta show off that tortitude! There’s nothing wrong with that. And, your new collar is so very beautiful, Astrid. And I love the rings your moms have. You and Sampy are so purrfect, and you have so many beautiful things that prove it!
Also, we can’t wait for next week’s 100th Sunday Selfie blog hop. How exciting, and of course congrats! Purrs!
Hi Astrid, those are the most lovely rings I have seen, and engraved too! Married life brings great responsibility and great fun too! Have a wonderful and SAFE 4th! purrs ERin
What a lovely gift and we LOVE that tortitude, Astrid!
Torties? Cooperate? Seriously? LOL, your collar is simply stunning, just like you!
Holy Cat! That’s an amazingly blingy collar, Astrid! Definitely befitting of your marvelous tortitude, and a special symbol of your marriage to Sampy. We love those rings that Mom got that she and Mom Emily can wear, too! 🙂
Thanks for hosting the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. Did you see who’s hopping for us today? 🙂
Congratulations on your marriage Astrid 🙂 I’m sorry I missed the event, it looked like it was beautiful and that is one special, blinged-out collar! Love makes everything worth it and you and Sampy are lucky to have found each other <3 And thank you to Mom for hosting the Sunday Selfies every week – almost 2 years!!!
