Planes and Trips and Babies, OH MY!!!




So we are off to Puerto Vallarta on Tuesday!
We are taking Jamie to meet his Great Grandparents, so EXCITING!

 I have to admit I am a little scared about taking Jamie on his first flight.  John and I have been googling "babies on trips" like it is nobodies business, of course I am even more apprehensive after reading all of the articles. Oh you can definitely tell we are rookie parents. I am even thinking of taking his favorite pot and wooden spoon just to keep him occupied. :)

We are off to purchase luggage tomorrow I saw these on the nood website and fell in love, they also come in a beautiful blue!  www.nooddesign.ca/
I'm also jonesing for the TUK TUK LUG Carry all bag! View it at http://www.luglife.com/


Enough day dreaming!
Here is a website that was actually very helpful, it breaks your entire travelling day down

HOLA

I am so excited to be starting this blog!

My name is Aubrey, I have been a wife for just over 2 years to my amazing husband John and for the last 8 months I have been learning how to be a MOM to my lil' man Jameson and will most likely still be learning 18 years from now. I have just started reading blogs mostly DIYs, design, art and mom stuff, I am becoming addicted.

Recently we have placed our townhouse on the market for sale in doing this I was able to finally put my passion for design to use, this time with my husbands blessings! Once I started designing I couldn't stop. John was seriously thinking of banning me from Craigslist and Etsy! I am soo in love with those sites. Oh the treasures you can find.


So I thought why not blog about all the things we have done and gone through to make our house sellable and how we will make our new house our home and survivng inbetween!!

Off to Grandma's House we go!!



I heart my Grandma's style! She is definitely a fashionista of  her time, not to mention her beautiful traditional design style.  I have always loved going to my Grandmas house, looking through her closet of beautiful stylish dresses that she designed and sewed. There is this pink coat that absolutely screams Coco Channel. (I am going  to take a picture of it next time I am there or possibly kidnap it and bring it home!)

 My Mom, Jameson (my lil' man)  and I packed up and headed out for the hour journey to Grandma's house.  Today I actually looked and my Grandma's house, took pictures and fell in love with it again but this time for its incredible decor. My Grandma is amazing for putting together vignettes (they are beautiful but VERY traditional). I took a few pictures for all to see, especially how she groups things so that they are shown off in the best possible way.

Stilll Waiting......



Well we hit day 100 on the market yesterday..... I wish we knew why our place wasn't selling we have at least 4 showings a week and the most negative feed back we have received is the 2nd bedroom is small. Well we can't change the size of the room but we definitely keep trying.

We had a celebrity come and view our home on Thursday Erin Karpluk from "Being Erica" I soo wanted to tell her that I love her and her show but I got nervous.

So we are off to Puerta Vallarta to visit John's abuelitos and introduce Jameson to his GREAT grandparents soo exciting!!

I have posted a view pics of our town home if anyone has any new ideas on how to show our home so it will sell I would be greatly appreciative
