Sister

A Sweet Baby Boy Sprinkle

Family and friends gathered at our church on Saturday to celebrate my sister and her soon-to-be-born baby boy with a little sprinkle!

My mom, Hannah’s sister-in-law, and I had such a great time planning this special day. When we found out Hannah was having a boy as her second child, we knew there were a few things she would need since her first child is a girl.

Everyone who was invited was more than excited to gift Hannah all the boy things! From swaddle blankets to sleepers and everything in between, I think she is set and I could not be more happy for her.

Things I don’t want to forget about the big day:

  • Watching Hannah open all the adorable boy clothes and gifts
  • Baking sugar cookies and frosting them with blue buttercream
  • Decorating with my mom and Hannah’s in-law’s before the party
  • Cleaning up afterwards and feeling so happy that my sister was able to have a special day
  • Spending time with friends and family

Ah, what a happy day! I mentioned in my last post that I filmed a little vlog for the big day, which is here.

It feels like just yesterday we were celebrating the impending arrival of Hannah’s baby girl, Caroline! It has been such a joy to watch my sister and her husband become amazing parents to their daughter, and I have no doubt they will do just as well with their son, Lawson ❤

A Parade, Dogs, and Vlogs

Hi! Whew, life has been full and busy and good lately.

The Parade

Jimmy and I spent Independence Day with our church family. Just like last year, we walked in a parade and handed out pens and candy. I think it was a great way to reach out to the community and hopefully see some new faces at church in the near future!

The Dogs

First and foremost, my sister and her husband got a puppy! He’s a golden retriever and they named him Indy.

Secondly, pet sitting has been keeping me busy! I’m pretty sure I’ve figured out over the past few years that the Fourth of July is the peak of the busy season for pet sitting. I have families on vacation, new clients, people wanting dog walking, and more.

My days revolve around dogs (and a few cats here and there!) and I absolutely love it. This week I’ve been spending time with five dogs, a cat, and a hermit crab. I even brought one of my clients to the parade with me on Independence Day!

It’s definitely a balancing act with pet sitting, working, and just keeping up with life in general, but I feel very blessed to be able to do what I love!

The Vlogs

I’m still enjoying filming vlogs here and there. My sister and I filmed a few together, which was a blast. I miss living with her! I also filmed one and discussed how I majorly embarrassed myself and basically detailed the day in the life of a pet sitter.

Tell me about your life lately!
