* I'll save my obsessions for later *

I haven't unpacked from our mini-holiday and we got back on Monday. Our bags made it as far as the kitchen floor and there they sit. I even stubbed my toe one of the suitcases this morning and did nothing but curse. 

My truck is wearing a Rudolf outfit. I impulsively got a set of antlers and matching red nose for the Avalanche and it's surprisingly awesome. I'm not sure when I became that person, but Saige thinks I'm the coolest mom on the road and Trev is a mixture of mortified and amused.

I'm an Amazing Race super fan. I would pretty much do anything to be on the show; I'd even shave my head {although I hope it would never come to that cause I'd make one ugly baldy}. I'm quite certain I'd be cast as the walking anxiety attack from Canada and as for my partner, I've narrowed my choices down to 2: Trev -  my quiet, patient, frustratingly stubborn hubby or Jill - my hilarious, overly friendly big sister who can seriously do anything and everything.

My 'thank you for the lovely baby gift' notes are 3 months too late. I just sent out the last of Gabe's birth announcements yesterday {along with our almost-missed-the-deadline Christmas cards}. Better late than never? I'm sure friends and family know that he's here otherwise I would be in the Guiness Book of World Records for longest human pregnancy ever.

I played Barbies in high school. There's nothing else I can say about this little factoid other than I wasn't alone; my BFF and I would hide under her bed so her hot older brother wouldn't catch us having Skipper sleep-overs.

I was slightly horrified when Gabe came out a ginger. I had visions of my son growing up to look like the not-so-funny comedian Carrot Top or the Olympian snowboarder Shaun White who now stars in Stride gum commercials. But now that Gabe is showing us more of his boyish good looks, I'm fairly confident he's going to be cutie {maybe even a hottie}. Being a red head is no picnic - the teasing, the freckles, the SPF 60 - Gabe's got some tough times ahead of him, but I wouldn't have him any other way.

I tore a second pair of good pants. True story but instead of my favourite pair of jeans it was my favourite pair of pajamas. I think I should take it as a sign that I need to lay off Baba's Christmas baking.

   Thanks for the fun link up E...

I was slightly horrified when Z came out a ginger too. I cringe when people comment in a not-so-complementary way. The saving grace is that he's awesome and handsome and totally his own person. He'll be an amazing ginger...

I realllly hope my son is a red head (at least an auburn like my DH)!! I'm partial to gingers though, I guess! Ha!

I think the rudolph decor on trucks is cute! :)

What?! I love gingers! Michael is a ginger and I was PRAYING that baby J would inherit his awesome red hair...instead of my brown BOOOOOORING hair :( but I don't think my prayers were answered. Red hair is gorgeous, and I was always jealous of girls that had it.

I LOVE this post. I cracked up out loud at your comment about Gabe being a ginger. :) Sam is 100% bald, but I'm pretty sure he's going to be a ginger too. And, I'm a little worried about it. BUT, then I remember hot gingers like Prince Harry, and I'm ok with it. Thanks for joining in!
