What Makes Catfish, Catfish?
The day after Christmas, we mailed in a swab of Kitty’s dog slobber to the Embark DNA labs, and we not-so-patiently waited for the answer to our question: What makes Catfish, Catfish? Our guess was a mix of Bully breed, a touch of Labrador, and a big splash of herding pup. (When she gets going, you should see this girl run circles around us!) There are many times where a quick glance reminds us of CC, and her dainty crossed paws are reminiscent of Jack. Without a doubt, our angels are sprinkled in there, too.
Welp, the results are in! We weren’t at all surprised that she’s Pit Bull Terrier (Jack!) and American Bulldog (CC!). Our herding dog suspicions were proved true (Australian Cattle Dog! Border Collie!), but Australian Kelpie was a fun surprise. We made a Reel right here if you’d like to see, and this is her family tree:
We used the Embark DNA test, which was a first for us. (In the past, we’ve also enjoyed Wisdom Panel.) The Embark test was very comprehensive, and it included a sweet video that we could share with friends and family. Now we can (continue to) be those annoying dog people that know the ins and outs of their pet and obsessively talk about it with other pet parents.
Have you done a DNA test for your pup? If so, were you surprised with the results? Let’s be annoying pet parents together!
I’ve been on the hunt for an everyday cup that would encourage me to drink more, more, more water. On my wishlist? It must have a straw, it must be insulated for cold water all day, it must be at least 24 oz, and it must be able to fit in our car’s cup holder. Oh, and it must be cute. This one is it!
I’ve been using CBD as a part of my daily routine for the better part of a year, but Equilibria changed the game! I was gifted a Brilliance Box and oh. my. word. While I love the morning soft gel and evening dropper, the relief cream has been a dream for headaches, back and shoulder aches. If you’re interested, they’re offering 15% off when you use the code yellowbrickhome!
All together now. Black. Is. Good! ✊🏽— @mariebeech
As lovers of music, it makes our heart sing (pun intended!) knowing that Lucy loves music, too! Her top requests are consistently Stevie Wonder and Mariah Carey, so I recently added this to our vinyl collection. All the feels!
I devoured SJP’s words. (Hey, another pun!)

Have a Happy Weekend!
We’re at Tree House for the weekend to soak up the snowy weather – which is one of our favorite times of the year in this corner of Michigan – and I thought it would be fun to do a Stories tour of the items in this home that we use and love. Like, let’s dig inside the medicine cabinet(!) and all. Be sure to follow along @yellowbrickhome if you’re not already, and I’ll share today or tomorrow! If there’s something you’re especially interested in, let me know in the comments.
Wishing you all a full weekend of whatever it is that makes you feel the happiest!
