Meet The Bloggers Hop

Meet the Pet Bloggers Hop

A bunch of pet bloggers have gotten together to form a Meet the Bloggers Hop. It's purpose is for bloggers to share information about themselves so that others can get to know you better, as well as to learn fun new stuff about fellow bloggers that you never knew.

On Mochas, Mysteries and More I *love* sharing pictures of my little cutie pie Truffles, pictures of myself not so much. One of the criteria of this blog hop is to share a current picture of yourself, so I decided to use the picture of me and Truffles the day I adopted her just 4 short months ago...that way you can look at her too! When this picture was taken it was the first time I had ever held her in my arms, and I was blissfully happy.

What’s your favorite non-animal related book? Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol

What’s your favorite non-animal related movie? Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho

What’s your favorite non-animal related food? Chocolate

Who’s your favorite actor? Michael Landon

What’s one thing you have to do every day? Read

What makes you feel fabulous? Sleeping in past 10am!

What do you wish you were more skilled at? Photography

What’s your favorite holiday? Christmas

Favorite meal? Pizza and Mexican food, love both equally

What do you like to do in your free time? Read

What one word would people who know you use to describe you? Efficient

If your pets could talk, what one word would THEY use to describe you? Worshipful

What is one thing you’ve done that you’re most proud of? My blog

How is your pet most like you? Truffles loves to sleep as much as I do!

What can your body do for you that makes you most proud? Good metabolism, so far!

Other than blogging, what are three things you do that bring you joy? Read, bake, NASCAR

What drives you nuts about your pets? What melts your heart? Truffles only drives me nuts when she won't let me sleep in on the weekends; everything else she does makes me melt.

If you didn’t have your current pets, what pets would you choose to have? I am 100% a cat person. I would love to have a dachshund one day, but can never see myself without a cat.

So glad I found your blog because of this blog hop! I'm a chocoholic too, and also love a bit of a lie in. Was great to read about you and looking forward to reading more in the future x

I love the photo you chose - what a wonderful and happy moment!

So glad you joined us on the hop - so fun to learn a little bit about you!

You and kitty look so sweet and I am so glad that I got to get to know you better.
Great blog hop!

Loved reading your answers, and thanks for including that cute picture :) Just a side note - I too love sleeping in and pizza.

Pamela said...

If Truffles slept in on the weekends, you'd explode from joy. So it's a good thing she has that tiny flaw. :)

This was really interesting ! Love this idea. Thanks for letting us get to know you.

What a great idea! Love learning a little bit more about other bloggers and animal lovers!!

Fun post! Cute picture. We listed the same book! Yours is the first blog I've come across that listed the same one as me. :) Oh, sigh - I used to have awesome metabolism. It's still pretty good - but not what it used to be. Getting old... it kind sucks sometimes! (Although it beats the alternative.) :)

Great post! I think that's a great photo - it shows true joy. I love Psycho too! That is an amazing film that shows you the true power of the horror genre. It engages the viewer's imagination rather than overwhelming them with disgusting/terrifying images. I'll have to join in if this hop ever comes around again!

jen said...

Yay! This is perfect and I'm so glad that you joined the hop and I could learn more about you!

I can hardly remember the days when I could sleep in past 10 and feel fabulous! I got close the other day-9:00!

Love that your a NASCAR fan! My son just got hooked this year and he's dragging me in with him!

Leslie said...

So pleased to "meet" you - thanks for joining the hop. What a sweet moment to capture on film and share with us. I love your choice of book.

Hi Melissa, I'm glad to know more about you! If we ever meet in person, we definitely have to go eat Mexican food together! Then have something chocolate for dessert with our mochas! : ) Melissa, too

Jessica @ said...

Yay for Dachshunds! I was a cat person until I was about 25 and then the "switch" my Dad says goes off one day that makes you want babies malfunctioned and made me obsessed with owning a dog. Ha, ha. I inherited a Dachshund (I had other plans but oh well) a few years later and adopted another 3 years ago. I can't imagine my life without a dog anymore but I sure love me some kitties.

I love that you said people would describe you as efficient. I believe your answers were succinct and efficient! LOL!
I absolutely love that your cat is names Truffles. How cute is that? Just love it. I also love to read, watch A Christmas Carol and eat Pizza and Mexican food.

Oh yeah, my name is Melissa too. :)
So glad you joined the hop!

So nice to meet you. Anyone who loves books and cats is an automatic friend. If I could only figure out how to attach a photo here, I'd show you the cat bed I have in my bookcase; I have a feeling you (and Truffles) would love it.

Julie said...

Truffles is SO CUTE! I have a sweet black kitty that looks very similar :) Thanks for joining in, it's so great to meet you!!

Thanks for joining us on the blog hop, it's wonderful to 'meet' you. I love the picture you choose of you and Truffles, it's a great way to introduce new readers to the key players.
