Sunday Selfies: Week #96

Hi efurrybuddy and welcome to our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. As I always do, I am dedicating my photo to my handsome fiancé, Sampson (Kitty Cat Chronicles).

I discovered a terrific and easy way to take selfies while I was sitting on my mom’s lap this morning. I had her open Photo Booth on her MAC, and once I was settled, I just had to hit the trackpad with my paw, and voila…the purrfect selfie. It only took a second, and then I could go right back to working out my paws and claws on mom’s thighs.


Bride-to-Be Astrid shares her selfie dedicated to Sampy.


In just eleven days I will become Astrid Blue-Hall when I marry the love of my life, Sampy Hall. Our flat-selves stand-ins will marry at the BlogPaws Conference in Phoenix, on Thursday, June 23, at 10:30 a.m. All humans and furkids attending the conference are invited to attend. The invitations to our wedding arrived today. They are super cute. Look for my mom or Sampson’s mom, Emily, when you arrive at the conference to get your invitation. Don’t worry if you can’t attend, my dad will be taking lots and lots of photos.

I’ve started working on my vows as they need to be extra special. I’ve asked my mom to help as she’s much better with words than I am. Maybe I’ll have her help me write a poem for Sampy as well.

This is our weekly Sunday Selfies blog hop, so you know what that means. It’s time for you to snap a photo of your handsome or beautiful self to share with us and all your admirers. We had a new pawticipant last week, the adorable kitten, Tiger, from SoPurrfect. If you didn’t have an opportunity to visit last week, we hope you’ll drop by this week and meet this darling.

The link to add your post to the hop is below as is the code if you’d like the hop to appear on your blog. Please just do us the courtesy of adding our badge and/or a link to The Cat on My Head on your post. And, as always, should you have any trouble adding your link, let us know in the comments, and I’ll ask my mom to add it for you.

Thanks for hopping!

Purrs and paw-pats, Astrid with love and kisses for Sampy
