obsessions & confessions.

Tuesday, December 6, 2011


birth stories. When it comes to tales of babies being born, I'm all ears. There's just something about a good labour & delivery play-by-play that gets me all misty eyed. Bet you can't read this or watch this without getting a bit teary eyed yourself.

baby wearing. It's the only way this momma can get a hands free moment around here {no my babies aren't spoiled much}. I actual scored a 2nd bjorn off craiglist the only day for $35; this way I have one in the house and one in the vehicle at all times.

mexico. I want to go back SO bad and bring the kids this time. All you facebookers with your Cancun countdowns and Tulum tans, please stop.... you're killing me.

cinnamon. The taste, the smell, the colour - be still my beating heart. 

the advent conspiracy. I usually LOVE finding perfect gifts for family & friends and wrapping them up pretty holiday paper, but this year I seem to have lost my Christmas shopping mojo. I'm so over the spending spree {as in we haven't bought a single gift for Gabe and Saige has slim pickings under the tree}. Instead we're leaving the presents to Santa and treating ourselves to a few memory making weekend family getaways. My friend Melissa shared this video and it pretty much sums up my attitude this holiday season...

scalding baths. my tub philosophy: the hotter the better. Halcyon Hot Springs can't come soon enough, 3 more days.

iphone apps. I don't text or twitter, but I want an iphone just for its instagram capabilities; oh and thanks to Bri, Saige has taken a liking to 'Tom Tom' the talking cat.


I'm addicted to my computer. I've been known to turn down social invites just so I can stay home in my pajamas and read blogs, surf the net, shop etsy and pin things to pinterst. Seriously, what did I do before high-speed internet came into my life?

I haven't showered. I think we're on day 3; if I don't go in for a hug the next time I see you, you'll know why.

I don't love newborns. Of course I love MY newborn - and not just cause I have to - but if given the choice I might opt out of the whole newborn stage... it's just not my thing. Maybe I say this cause I haven't had the easiest {or robust} babies; something about their fragility and complete reliance on yours truly freaks me out a little lot. Gabe 100% trusts that I know what I'm doing so I feel like a big fat fraud somedays most days because I seriously have NO clue. I'm definitely on Team fake it 'til you make it.
I don't pay full price. I wasn't sure if I should make this an obsession or a confession, but I'm truly.madly.deeply obsessed with deals, coupons, discounts, savings, etc. If it's not on sale, I don't buy it {or I try to barter}. Something inside me refuses to pay full sticker price which is why browsing these sites has become part of my daily routine:

I'm not a fan of the Ergo. Moms rave above this carrier, but Gabe & I just can't get on board. For now we're staying loyal to the bjorn brand.

I don't fold laundry. I used to, but now I just leave heaping piles of clean clothes scattered around the house in baskets. How do I manage the wrinkle situation you ask? confession #2 - I don't iron either... I'll just put on a creased cardigan, give it a good spritz of water and let gravity & my body heat work their magic.

I eat cookie dough. And so does my daughter... it must be genetic.

LOVE this list! Especially love the confession about not loving newborns - I'll take a 3 month old please. :) And, as for the birth stories, go read C Jane's. I can't find the link... But google "Erin Caroline's Birth Story." It is NUTS.

I also love birth stories and videos! But - as cute as the video you linked was, I'm slightly weirded out by the amount of posing she's doing during her labour. Hair and make up was the LAST thing I was thinking about. I guess that's why she ends up with a super cute birth video and I've got pictures of me sweaty, naked and screaming.
