I was tickled pink to see my article published on The Yummy Mummy Club yesterday! If you are not a subscriber over there, I am re-posting it here for all of you - and avec pictures of the things I actually bought recently to add some colour to my wardrobe for spring. Click on the clothes collage to head over to Polyvore for the full info on each piece.

Congratulations to Mommy Eden on the arrival of beautiful Emmerson. You can see photos of her maternity shoot (gorgeous!) and her sweet little bundle on Tickled Pink Photography's Blog. I also happen to know that she designed an ah-mazing nursery for her little princess.....perhaps you'll see it featured on the blog soon!

You all know my love for daily deals websites since I posted them here a couple of weeks ago. I log in every morning and take a quick look at each website to see what goodies are on sale that day. I don't often buy stuff online (contrary to the way I post about schtuff on here), but when it is a great deal, I just can't help myself. Mostly, I fill up my cart with stuff and then close the window. All the fun with none of the cost, ha! Anyone else torture themselves like this?

If you have not yet heard of Kelle Hampton, you will soon. Her beautiful blog and photography are inspiring me (and millions of other people around the world.....check her out on CNN.) lately and I wanted to share her blog and her story with you.

Baby should never have his chin resting on his chest.
Baby's head should be above the rest of her body.
Baby's knees should be higher than his butt.
Baby's face shouldn't be covered by fabric.
Baby's head should be supported.

If you are a fan of the show Dragon's Den, you might have seen the beautiful Christine Poirier pitching her Momzelle nursing tops to the Dragons last week.

Started my day with some BT and saw a great interview with author of How to be an Everyday Philanthropist, Nicole Bouchard Boles. I love the concept of the book and can't wait to pick it up at the library. Who knew there were 330 ways to make a difference in the world at little to no cost to you?
Have an old pair of sneakers lying around the house? Nike's Reuse-a-Shoe program will recycle them into safe playground surfaces. Getting rid of that old cell phone? Call to Protect will refurbish it as an emergency lifeline for abused women. Racking up frequent- flier miles? Donate them to an ill child so they can travel and get the care they need. Like to knit? Knit hats for cancer patients.
Start a petition, sign a petition, send out an awareness e-mail, and network with like-minded givers and doers at Care2.com. There are ideas for giving things you might never have thought of--your hair, old prom dress, breast milk for African AIDS orphans. Ideas for using your hobbies, talents, time, trash, technology, and more. Each suggestion can be accomplished in the course of a day, most within an hour.
Use your Belongings: You're not just giving away stuff: You're keeping an abandoned animal warm, helping a woman land a job, making a sick child's dream come true.
Use your Body: Give with your body. Use your legs to run for a cause. Use your arms to snuggle a hospitalized baby. Give of your body. Donate hair to create mats that clean oil spills. Donate umbilical cord blood to save lives. Donate breast milk for premature or critically ill babies in need.
Use your Family: Give new meaning to quality time: Adopt a puppy; become a frog watcher; be a host family for the Fresh Air Fund; deposit change in a Giving Jar; sign up for National Family Volunteer Day.
Use your Talents: Match your skills with a cause: Are you a whiz at Web design, accounting, writing? Help a school in Guatemala design a brochure; organize the books in your community center; write a grant proposal for a local homeless shelter.
Use your Computer: Give back without leaving your desk: Use a search engine that donates money to charities each time you click; be a virtual mentor to an orphaned teen; shop at charity malls.
In tough times it's more important than ever that people and communities pull together-- How To Be An Everyday Philanthropist makes it easier than ever before.
And then..... on a related note..... I found Toy Society - which is a blog to bring together people who want to bring joy and handmade toys to a child in a whimsical and magical way. I LOVE this idea and it will give me an excuse to make one of the cute crafts I have been drooling over on www.craftgawker.com. Check out some of the toy "drops" in the pictures below. Wouldn't it be so neat for your child to find one of these while out on a walk? I just LOVE it!

What do you think? Boy or Girl? Will Michael find some way to be in the delivery room? Will Dwight try and give some breastfeeding advice? I can't WAIT!

p.s If you are ready for a new pair of jeans, Rock & Republic jeans are on sale at Haute Look today! I just bought a pair for more than 50% less than I can get them here in Calgary. So excited to have an option other than leggings (I gave up on ever fitting into my pre-preggo jeans again - boo!)
