Finally. Ugh. I have waited and waited so long for an Iphone and finally took the plunge.Yes yes I know, a little late eh? I had 3 friends left on my BBM. 3. You guys, I love it. I got the Iphone 5 so I can't say if it's any better than the 4 or 4s. Either way, Iphones are fab machines.
You may have noticed on the left hand side of my page I now have Instagram! Feel free to follow me there as I will be posting photos daily of random stuff.
There is something about becoming an auntie. I'm not a mom, and I don't know how it feels to be a mom, but there's just something about being an auntie. Especially a new auntie to a new baby. Warms my heart doesn't even describe it. I guess you could say it's adding love to my heart.
Baby Kayla was born Thursday evening...
This is the new daddy. My brother. I've never seen him hold a baby before. He could't take his eyes of her. Even when I wanted to take a "family" photo. It was precious and totally fine.
We went to see them yesterday at home. It's amazing how fast babies change. Here is a couple photos from yesterday...
I can't wait to watch her grow. I can't wait to have tea parties with her and brush her hair and be the best Auntie CC ever.
Love love love her. This is going to be the best Christmas ever with my brand new niece and my growing precious nephew.

For as long as I can remember I've always loved plaid. Even in elementary school I would take my dads plaid shirts and wear them to school even though they were super huge on me. There's just something about the print that I love. Maybe it's because it brings me back to my younger years. I dunno.
Anyways, here's my take on dressing plaid up a bit. And tis the season to get some good use out of my hunters!
I apologize for the lack of posts, but this week has been crazy busy with a lot of Christmas cheer. Husband's work Christmas party is tonight. I'm looking forward to meeting all of his work mates that I hear so much about!

It's really amazing what happens to your mind after you get married. I though for sure I'd want to wait a least a couple of years after marriage to have a baby. But when I see my twin sister's little guy and my brother has a baby girl on the way (sissy-in-law is due on Monday!) and my very best friends little girls, I can't help but feel like the couple years is closing in. My husband is amazing with all babies and I call him the baby whisperer.
I feel like something has kind of clicked.
The only things keeping me back and this one might be kind of selfish is I still have my 30th birthday coming up in June. I wanted to go to Vegas. I've never been to Vegas. The more I think about it though, Vegas isn't going anywhere -but my years are.
I was also traumatized by what my sister went through during labour. Holy-smokes. Why would I ever want to endure that! And I know-I know, look was came after! But it still scared the bejesus out of me. Although she didn't have an epidural...
And money. You sure don't make a lot when you're on maternity leave!
Decisions decisions. This is the biggest decision ever. And I don't know how to make it. Some may say by reading this is maybe you aren't ready or you'll just know. Maybe I'm not ready right now, but will be 9 months down the road when the baby is ready? It's scarey to even think about. Gah
How did you mamma's know you were ready?
Enough of my rambling, I'm really digging faux fur type things right now, like this vest!
