Hi guys! Happy Thursday! Only two more weeks until Thanksgiving in the United States. Crazy! I’m super excited :). Jimmy and I will be having some family members over, and we’re going to be pet sitting. I love when our house is full of dogs and people, haha.
Speaking of family and dogs, here’s a cute picture of Hannah with Moses, Brandy, and Reggie…
Alright, I’ll get into today’s post now.
Here are some interesting links I’ve found around the internet recently!

I hope everyone has a wonderful rest of the week and weekend! I think it’s supposed to snow a little bit in Pittsburgh today, and I’m going to the Pittsburgh Pet Expo this weekend to report for a school assignment. I’m so excited because pets are allowed to go to the expo! I can’t decide if I want to take Lola or not. I don’t want to get too distracted and I also don’t want her to pick up any germs (I’m such an overprotective fur mom..). Would you take your pet?!
