Welcome to my new blog! (Formerly, but new and improved!) Now it’s melissadawnmakes, same as my Tumblr, so there’s less confusion!

I thought it would be a nice first post to introduce you to the members of the household! That way, when I refer to them, you’ve got an idea who I’m talking about. ๐Ÿ™‚


This is me! I really take photos, so this is almost 2 years old, but not much has changed. I’m still a cat on my days off. ๐Ÿ˜›


This is my wonderful boyfriend! Both these pics were taken with my DS, so that explains the sunglasses and kitty.

This is Odin, the Manchester terrier who loves to steal my cozy spots on the couch whenever I get up. But he’s adorable and cuddly and loving, so we ignore the fact that he’s veeeeery gassy and his breath smells like fish.

And this is the jerk of a leopard gecko, Tank! His favorite past times include climbing his plastic bonsai, scowling at people, and generally scorning everything that isn’t food.

The fish won’t let me get a good photo, but there are 6 of them! 4 harlequin rasboras named Nimble, Newmoon, Rogar, and Ambrose (Gamersย anyone? We drew Mark on the side of the tank with a dry erase marker), one plecostomus named Sven, and a gorgeous, friendly betta named Zevran. (yep, Dragon Age reference!)


food, our pets, playing video games, playing board games, playing card games, playing any games, RPG’s, ethnic food, reading books, reading magazines, reading labels of things if we don’t have books, cuddling on the couch, hanging out with friends at our weekly wing night, and other stuff.


mornings, early mornings, lack of food, lack of games, lack of books, having to do grown up things like cleaning and laundry, phones that run out of batteries too quickly, things that misplace themselves, and other annoying things.

There you have it! That pretty much sums up our house!
