How I know he missed me + Mavis is getting big!

I’m not sure how, but another week has gone by since I last posted! It was quite an eventful week, as Jimmy was out of town from Tuesday through Saturday, I spent some time with my family, worked, and met my friend’s baby.

I dropped Jimmy off at the airport on Tuesday evening so he could fly to Las Vegas and meet his friends for a bachelor party. They visited Zion National Park, Sequoia National Park, and the Grand Canyon. He came home telling me I must go out west with him ASAP!

I really, really missed him while he was gone, but I’m so glad he had fun on his trip!

You know how I know he missed me? I got ready for church on Sunday while he was eating breakfast and asked his opinion on my shoes and how they went with my outfit. When he finished getting ready a little while later, he came out of the closet dressed in the same color as me, LOL.

Jimmy thought it was so cool that we matched 🙂

My mom spent the night with me on Wednesday night and I spent the night with my parents on Thursday night while Jimmy was away. It was really nice to spend a good chunk of time with my family. Mavis and Lola enjoyed spending time at my parents’ house, too!

Mother and daughter

Comparing Mavis to my parents’ cocker spaniel, Brandy, made me realize just how big Mavis is getting! I’ve always thought her paws are pretty large, and wondered if she would be big. The fact that she isn’t even five-months-old and is almost the size of Brandy (who is four-years-old) is crazy!

Cocker spaniels

While at my parents’ house, I visited my friend Kim and met her son, Jackson! One thing I miss about living with my parents is how easy it was for Kim and I to hang out. She lives maybe two minutes from my parents.

We used to see each other at least a few times a week, and now that I’m on the other side of Pittsburgh, it’s a little more difficult to get together. It definitely makes it that much more special when we do see each other, though!

Life has been very busy lately, but it always feels so wonderful to take time to come to this space and document it all. I’ll be back again soon, with a post on some house projects Jimmy and I have been working on!

Tell me about your life lately!
