Bugaboo announces the Cameleon3

Babyology in Australia has an awesome write up on the brand new Bugaboo Cameleon3 stroller. If you wondered why the old Cameleons are going on sale, well I guess this is why. There are several improvements, the biggest one being that it is now easier to fold. Other highlights include a bigger underseat bag, plusher seats and a flat-fold carrycot.

The most comfortable bra for pregnant or nursing boobs!

 What I told my sister: This is the most comfortable bra I've ever worn.
And what goes down during "sister talk", is some real deal truth! I love this bra so much. I actually have this baby on right now. I love it so much I bought 2 in white and 1 in black. And I bought one for my sister.
 I have  ordered and purchased so many awful nursing/maternity bras...only to be be piled up in the corner of my bra and undie drawer. They are either too tight, too loose, no support, too sweaty, the straps hurt your shoulders, the snaps dig in....but this bra, I am not kidding you- is the most comfortable bra ever to be wrapped around my rib cage and shoulders! And I've been wearing mine since I was pregnant!
Yes, you too can have the most comfortable nursing/maternity bra too....ha ha ha
I'll share with you "sister talk style" where I got it:
A Pea In The Pod (now if you don't have a store near you, just order it online!)
Here's the link for the Seamless Clip Down Nursing Bra (and don't be fooled by the nursing name...this is THE BEST, MOST COMFORTABLE MATERNITY BRA for while you're pregnant!)

PS. Plus, if you are going to be nursing...you are probably going to need to wear a bra at night too, because you are going to need to wear nursing pads to avoid milk leaks. So just get one in maybe a slightly bigger size, if you want to use it as a "sleeping bra" too!

If you are not preggy, but know someone who is, pass this boulder holder info on...they will thank you. Just like my sister did. She said: "this really is the most amazing bra!"....

hip hip hoo-bra, kandee

Goodbye to Betsey with my lil Fashionista...

 This is/was the Betsey Johnson store in Santa Barbara. I have loved Betsey Johnson since I was little. When my mom was in Fashion School, before she had me, she did a whole project about Betsey Johnson. So ofcourse, my litte budding designer, Alani loved the Betsey Johnson store too!
We went there, to get something that I can't wait to show you all....and it's nothing you can wear! It's much more amazing, I think.
Here is Alani, trying on her "favorite" neckace. 
I went there with just my girls- Me, Alani and Ellie.
And ALL the photos, except for the one above (of her wearing the necklace) were taken by Alani. I told her just to have fun and take pictures of what she liked!
So here is her photos of the last days of the Betsey Store- which today, wednesday is their official last day....

 we love turquoisey shades....
 and jewelry....
 this sailor necklace was one of our favs...
 I kinda love artsy and blurry this picture came out...
Alani designed some really great outfits too...
She had so much fun, giggling and taking pictures...she was very busy...
I just loved seeing her little eyes light up and have fun being creative.
And we drove home talking about how she could design her own jewelry someday, like the fun jewelry we saw.

Oh I can't wait to show you what I got! Soon, soon it should be here...they had to ship part of it to me. I wanted to buy the necklace stands so badly...they were only like $5 a piece, but someone had already beat me to buying them! "OH GRAPES!", and Blakey says. Instead of "oh great!", he says "OH GRAPES!"....I love it!

oh grapes, kandee

Do you have THIS in your bathroom?

 Ok, Ok. I know I already bogged about this a while ago...but I still love it. Still use it in the kids bathroom. And I had to buy one for my lil niece, Sydney, when I was at my sisters.

So this is for all everyone that may have missed it- this is the AQUEDUCK!
Above without water...and below...
ready for some fresh, hand cleaning action.
It is just the right reach for little hands to wash those little fingers comfortably, without smashing their armpits against the counter to try to reach. And it's really fun to wash your hands with thus, it feels more fun, like a little river of water too!

All I have to say is- whoever thought of a "faucet extender", is brilliant! Such a simple, yet awesome idea! I know they were a parent!

this is a great gift idea too, you'l seem the "hunter of all cool kids things"...(ha ha ha ha), kandee

Proud Moments in Whole Foods!

 Just look at the food that my babies picked out at Whole Foods for lunch! I am so proud of my lil Health Nuts- just like mama! I let them pick whatever they want and this is what they picked! I'm serious, I did not even tel them what to pick- and they could have chosen pizza or mac n' cheese, even!
Blake's Food Choices:
Raw Broccoli
Hidden under that is Cauliflower, peas and some corn and brussel sprouts (yes, they picked brussel sprouts on their own)
And a hard boiled egg
Alani's Food Basket:
Raw Cauliflower
Raw Brocolli
and un-shown here was the hard boiled egg she was getting too
And they eat it all!!!
 Then we went miniature golfing....Blake and Alani both got hole-in-whole-one's!
 And Ellie's favorite part was riding in the "BMW" ride in the arcade part!

And I'm still amazed that my kids chose brussel sprouts and raw broccoli all on  their own!

yum brussel sprouts, kandee

Manne-kids in the window

 No, these are not mannequins but real kids in the window box. Blakey, Alani and their lil' cousin Sydney...freshly dressed after a baths and ready for a fun day...

And again, my poor Blakey resorted to using the Betsey Johnson stickers to "tape" his "hot wheels" into their tray, "so they won't come out", he said. And wait til you see what I got at the Betsey Johnson store, it was going out of business and I got some pretty cool things- I can't wait to show you! I'll show you on my other bloggy (kandeej), next week!
These little ones make me laugh all day! I just love everything they say!

Baby Before & After

here was me and my sister when we arrived (VERY EXCITED) at the hospital on May 22nd, around 7:30-ish at night- after we had dinner!
My sister, Tiffany, with the biggest her baby belly can get!
The differences are:
she no longer had the baby in her belly
i have a different color tank top on
she took her contacts out- glasses on
my hair looks awful
neither one of us have really slept in the last 24 hours
she has a new, more faded gown on
and my heart grew even more proud of my sister, than it already was, to witness her strength and "labor" of love to get this baby here.....


And this was my "accessory-of-the-day":
....these 2 stickers for security to get into the Mother-Infant Unit!

I am too excited to feel tired, ha ha ha ha, kandee

My sister went into labor yesterday!

My little sister, Tiffany had her baby early this morning!
This is sort of how it went down:
I tell my sister I will massage her feet, because I heard someone say it starts labor.
(I'm chalking it up to my foot massage that sent her into labor! ha ha ha)
We watch a funny comedy video.
We go downstairs to eat dinner.
I go to feed Ellie.
I see my sister walk by the doorway and say "my water broke"....
I think she's kidding and ask, "for real?"
She says, "yeah"....
I grab my phone- and try to catch up with them at the car...
My mom takes Ellie and I say bye to the kids.
We race to hospital- laughing and she does awesome!

I was so honored to be my sister's labor coach! Me and her hubby were there the whole. Feeding her ice, snacks, water and juice.

The hours seemed to fly by at first...
and I was so proud of my sister!

We counted down through all her contractions, telling her when they were peaking and then that were going to slow down. She did so well!

Then at 5am, her little baby girl made it to the world. Perfect and according to this auntie- she's absolutely beautiful! (insert proud auntie smile!)

I don't even care that I haven't had much sleep...I just made it back to take a shower and all I want to do is go back to the hospital to hold that precious angel!

Off to go hold her....kandee

Kristin also gave her guests gift bags from Le bébé Coo skin care, which included shampoo, conditioner, lipstick and body wash.

Waiting for baby...

Miss Ellie Belle and her light-up, princess wand and Me...
My sister didn't go into labor yet...so we went to get sandwiches for lunch and smoothies afterwards.
Me and my sister had never been to an ULTA before, so we headed their after lunch- since it was right next door to the smoothie place.
Ellie found some fun little boxes with handles like a purse- we love "purse-like" things.
After we found some goodies we headed back for nap time for Ellie and my sister.
Me and my sister filmed a fun video- a sort of "what's in your bag for labor at the hospital" and what to take when you go into labor.
My sister is going to the hospital because she had some things with her heart. She will be good and my greatest excitement is to be able to be there to help coach her on! I am so honored and excited that she wants me there!
Then I made a haul video of all teh goodies I got at Ulta.
We ate a yummy spaghetti dinner, with yummy avocado and cranberry topped salad, roasted chicken and garlic bread...made by my sister's sweet in-laws.
Followed by an ice cream party.
My sister makes me laugh so hard, even when she's giant and pregnant!

And now I'm typing this as all my babies are fast asleep...
 I wish they made these silver gladiator like sandals (they are hand me downs from my niece) in my size! They are Pedipeds...I think the rest of her outft is from Target. You know me and my love of Target. And there is no Target in the Santa Barbara area near my sister! Cray-zay....ha ha ha

How to Play House

 First you take your pretend broom and sweep and your "playhouse". Then you stop and look at all that you swept.

Then maybe you realize you need to put your sweater on and go get something from the store so you hop in your red sportscar.

Ellie loved playing in my sisters backyard. My niece has fun things like a little playhouse with a doorbell, that we love.

It's so funny...me and my sister used to play house when we were little and pretend we were mommies, and to stand in my sisters backyard with her and watch our little ones playing together, it was just amazing.

i bet it's been a long time since you wanted to play house and pretend you were cleaning (ha ha ha ha), pretending I'm typing, (ha ha ha) kandee
