Cat is really one of the most genuinely nice people I know. She's just bright and pleasant and being around her is so much fun. I entirely agree with the making of this thread. :P

I agree. Cat is a wonderful, sweet, and caring person. I feel truly blessed to finally call her a friend and am glad someone thought to start this thread.  ;)

She is all of those things, but I will tell you what she isn't....

She is NOT innocent!

I just felt that needed repeating. :P

Well, yes, that goes without saying. As we've proven by unbiased poll, the most innocent member of the forums is me. :P

Thank guys! My ego is now HUGE!...

No seriously, I'm extremely flattered :) Ya'll are too sweet.

Graham, remember that I'm a married woman now! Some of my innocence is now gone! :P

Now, for the real reason for a personal thread...

PICTURES!

Kimmie suggested I add some of the Chihuly Nights pictures from Facebook for everyone to see. So here they are! (BTW, I'm linking from Facebook and experimenting. If this doesn't work, let me know!)

Chihuly Nights:

Japanese Garden:


My favorite part:


These things were just COOL:


People were standing in front of this, so I couldn't get the best pic, but...


Also very cool when lit up:


Again, loved these things!

Glass sculptures by this guy named Dale Chihuly. And, two nights a week, they light them up. Absolutely breath-taking!

Cat! :o   ;)

Your glass sculpture pictures are absolutely beautiful!  It's amazing what talent God can give us.  I believe there's a chandelier at a mall in Seattle that Dale Chihuly crafted. Incredible!

It was absolutely amazing to be there. I had seen pictures of them during the day, but when I heard they lit up at night, I told Erik and Ian, his brother, that we HAD to go at night. Let me tell you...WOW!

Haids, I bet you're right about the chandelier. There were two of them crafted at the Cheekwood house. I couldn't get pictures of them since they didn't allow photography in the building.

Oh, and I'm LOVING the pictures of cats ya'll are posting! Too cute!

Gorgeous photos!

And yes, Cat is totally awesome and wonderful and sweet! And has an adorable Southern accent, too.

And what's hilarious is that most people in the South ask where I'm from XD

Oh, and I'm thinking next Skype chat, I need to thicken my accent and give you guys a taste of a REAL Southern accent :P

Depends on what part of Tennessee you're from :P West Tennessee is more country, East Tennessee is more mountain, in the accents. And yes, there is a difference between a country accent, a mountain accent, and a Southern accent :P

Kimmie, message me the advert and I'll let you know :P

If you're in the bottom left corner of West Tennessee, you'll also come across a lot of southern ebonics. Actually, around Memphis, the Southern accents are very weak--a lot weaker than yours, Cat. I'm surprised people ask you where you're from! Lol.

Awww, I guess I never really pictured you with a Southern accent, Cat!  That's too adorable! Does your husband have an accent too?
