Five Things I’m Loving Lately

1. My Boys. Malcolm is definitely a daddy’s boy. He loves Jimmy (and vice versa!) and basically any time I see Jimmy around the house, Malcolm is in his arms. So sweet.

2. Awesome clients. One of my pet sitting clients surprised me with chocolate covered pretzels the other day! Sometimes pet sitting is tough work (gotta love picking up dog poop in below freezing temperatures over and over again haha) but the relationships I’ve established with my clients and their pets makes it all worth it a million times over. And some good chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt πŸ˜‰

3. Dog sweaters. Tis the season for cold weather, and for my family that means dog sweaters! I bought Lola a sweater last year, but it ended up being a crop top (LOL), so I gave it to my parents and I’m happy to report if fits their cocker spaniel, Brandy. I also bought Mavis a sweater so she can stay warm while we pet sit together. Now I just need to get Lola one that fits her!

4. A new cereal addiction. First it was pumpkin spice cheerios, then cinnamon puffins, then cocoa bunnies. Now I’m onto pumpkin spice life. What’s your favorite cereal?

5. Mavis when she first wakes up. She looks exactly like I do when I wake up before 7:00 am!

What are you loving lately?



  1. Hooray for the pretzels your client surprised you with. I bet pet sitting really is a tough job with the cold weather there, plus you have a big responsibility with someone else’s pet. They have to really trust you, but the pet has to trust you too.

    My favorite cereal… well, I really like vanilla chex but my guilty pleasure is the Oreo O’s imitation that comes in the big bag at Walmart.

    1. Pet sitting is SO tough in the winter… like it’s currently 0 degrees in Pittsburgh right now. Zero!! But I try to think about how awesome it is in the summer! It kind of makes up for the coldness in the winter!

      Mmmm, I forgot about Oreo O’s! They’re SO good!

  2. I have to say lately I’m loving our Christmas lights… needless to say Dad and I went a little crazy (for us anyway) this year and strung lights up around our entire fenced back yard. After a few issues, we worked it out and now I really love it!!
    May May in her little sweater is adorable, as is Malcolm constantly in Jimmy’s arms ❀ When you said Lola's sweater was a crop top is seriously LOL'd! I'll look around the house and see if I have an old one for her.
    Love you!!

    1. Your Christmas lights look AWESOME mom!! They are so twinkly and bright and beautiful!

      Lola in her crop top was so funny. I’m glad she could pass it on to Brandy πŸ˜‰ Let me know if you find one that can fit Lola!

  3. Life cereal is probably my favorite! I don’t eat it that much but it’s so yummy. One thing I’ve been loving lately is our Christmas decor! I can already tell I’ll be sad when it has to come down since it makes the apartment feel so homey.

  4. Pumpkin spice Life?! Oh noooooooo πŸ˜‰ I am all about sweaters for my brother and his wife’s dogs. It makes having small animals even more fun!

  5. Oooh those chocolate-covered pretzels look delicious! Haven’t seen them before! And I just love hearing about your fur babies…they sound like so much fun πŸ˜€

    1. They’re really, really good! They’re from a chocolate factory here in Pittsburgh… I can send you some if you want! Shoot me an email and I’ll ship them out!

      The fur babies really are so much fun… and work. But mostly fun!

    1. The dog sweaters crack me up! They’re just so cute. It has been so cold here, so I’ve found they actually need the extra warmth when we’re out pet sitting, haha. And Malcolm and Jimmy just make me so happy! Love those boys!
