When determining the hybridization scheme of a certain atom, all electron domains should be counted, whether they be bonding or lone pairs. Bonding electrons will essentially singly occupy their respective hybridized orbitals (allowing sigma bonds to form via interactions with other orbitals only containing one electron) while lone pairs will fill entire hybridized orbitals.
