PSSST: Today I will be sharing some pictures from Friday night with all of you of the most beautiful baby in the world. You won't want to miss it. <3
PSSSSSSSSSSSSSSST: Make sure you check out this website. They have the most delicious recipes.
My precious niece was born Friday night at 11:53pm.
Becca started having contractions around 2am on Friday. Caleb and Becca went to the hospital, and were told to go back home. It wasn’t time yet. Later that day she started having contractions about 4 minutes apart. This worried them, for Selah wasn't due for another three weeks. They called the doctor, and she told them to go ahead and come into the hospital. Caleb packed up a bag, and they headed to the hospital. Becca was so strong through it all. She stayed positive the whole way, and I was so proud of my brother. He was so casual and calm, and eased Becca while she was in pain.
While holding her today, she fell asleep on me. I’ve never felt so much love. <3
Our friend Heather Amer was there on Friday night. She is a photographer and took many beautiful pictures, so be watching for those soon. :) My Facebook is flooded with status updates, wall posts, and pictures of this precious little baby. Don’t expect any of that to change any time soon.
Be sure to visit Becca’s blog or Caleb’s blog for future updates on baby Selah Grace. We are all so happy and excited that she is finally here. :)

Christmas is drawing nearer and nearer. I know this because of two reasons: the date on the calendar says so and the amount of Christmas posts in my blog feed is increasing.
I feel kind of left out that I’m not doing a Christmas series or a ton of holiday posts. It’s really not like me!
Christmas hasn’t really started around my house yet. As I said before, we don’t have our decorations or tree up yet. We’re putting them up on Saturday. We have this tradition where we listen to Elvis Presley’s Christmas cd while we put up the holiday decor. We line our kitchen doorway with all the Christmas cards we receive. We each have our own ornaments that we hang on the tree.
This will be the first year that my brother won’t be home Christmas morning to open up presents. I will admit, it makes me sad. It makes me feel like an only child!
This week I find out my roommate for CofO. I’m super excited! I keep checking the housing information online to see if they’ve updated it yet! I’m so excited.
I only have six days left at work, and then I’m done! FOREVER! It kind of makes me sad! It was my first and only job I’ve ever had.
Did anyone catch Glee last night? It was the Christmas episode! And am I the only watching the Sing Off? I hope not, because it was awesome!!
I’m off work today, which means I’m supposed to be productive on my own. Haha! Yeah right…I’m going to watch Ellen and then make some more hair accessories to take into Indie next week. Sounds like a productive day to me!
What are your plans for today?
Whatever they are, I hope that you have a great and fun-filled Wednesday!

Can I just say that I love this girl so much??
She makes me laugh so easily, makes me feel so comfortable to be who I am, and we are so alike that it's a little scary.
But it's normal to be exactly the same as your best friend.
Every time we're in her car we belt out songs on the radio, and try to harmonize. I think next Monday I'm going to bring my video camera in the car to record our (attempt at) singing. She thinks it would be a pretty funny video.
We have these long talks in her car when we hang out.
Talks about college, work, life...I'm really enjoying them.
She encourages me and makes me excited about my future.
Best friends have a way of doing that. :)
PS: Here's another good song that I've been listening to lately. I love it!
I am still a Broncos fan.
PSSSSST: I just finished giving my friend Tiffany a little blog makeover. You can check it out here. I designed her banner, her pages and tabs, her sidebar art, customized her colors and text...gave her a complete makeover! If you would like me to design you a blog banner, sidebar art, pages/tabs, etc...let me know! I'll do it for absolutely free! :)
