RSVP's "The List" - Fedelia Crenshaw

Everyone loves a good cake. We gift and expect them whenever there’s a reason to celebrate, so having a talented baker and decorator in our city is more than welcome! After working in sales for several years, Fedelia “DeeDee" Crenshaw took a leap of faith and opened Cakeology LLC. The custom-cake shop and bakery creates the perfect cake for any occasion, and she has made several for us here at RSVP. “There is no greater reward than hearing the client tell me how much they loved the cake I created. I enjoy being a part of any special event because the cake is often the focal point of any event, whether it is a wedding, anniversary, or birthday.” Read more about Fedelia here: http://www.rsvp-montgomery.com/the-list/november-december-2018

 

RSVP's "The List" - Julian Petty

Julian Petty has never met a stranger and his energy is contagious. A Mobile, Ala. native, Julian graduated from Auburn University as a wireless engineer and married his college sweetheart, Carla, who works as a nurse practitioner. After graduation, Julian departed for an active duty Army career and began obtaining his master’s degree in cyber systems. After ten years of moving, Julian and Carla returned to Montgomery with their son Elijah and daughter Avery. Concerned by the extreme lack of play among today’s youth, Julian was inspired to start a business that would get kids and adults to interact with one another and be less sedentary. LAF Game Co. (Learn Active Fun) has been a roaring success. Read more about Julian here: http://www.rsvp-montgomery.com/the-list/november-december-2018

PETS OF THE WEEK

 

Wonder

Well just take a look at me! I am a beautiful three-year-old terrier mix that feels like I have just hit the jackpot! A while back I was in terrible shape. I wandered into a shelter volunteer’s yard hoping to find some help! It looked like I had recently had babies and my skin was a mess. My friend Molly knew just what to do for me. She took me to the vet and started working on my skin issues. She alerted the shelter that I was with her incase my family came looking for me. My family never came and after weeks of treatment I am now ready for adoption. I have all of my vaccinations, I am heartworm negative, I have a microchip, and I have been spayed. No more babies for me!! Molly gave me great recommendations! She said that I played well with other dogs and kids! I can play fetch with tennis balls and I love tug of war. I am already crate-trained and I keep a clean cage. There is only one little problem…..I think I am a lap dog! Is your lap big enough to hold me??

 

Sophia

OH, hello. My name is Sophia! I am a sweet and pretty girl that is wondering why I am looking for a new home. I was told that my family was moving and I could not go with them. I was sad and a little scared when I heard the news. You see I am a shy girl and it would be easy for me to be over looked in a cat room with so many nice and outgoing cats and kittens. I am about four years old and I have all of my vaccinations, I have a microchip, I am declawed, and I have been spayed. I hope that someone will give me the chance to have a new home.
