a little love

I have something special happening in my life, and they all relate to a few of my favorite bloggers. I am going to be an Aunt. This will be my first non marriage niece/nephew, and I am so excited. I cant wait to meet my new love.

From India With Love

I love this blog, and blogger. Kay* and I have been blog friends since I started blogging years ago. She originally wrote a blog on décor which was FAB, but things changed once she made the decision to volunteer in India for a year. She leaves this month. The kicker is this…her sister is giving birth to her first niece within days. She wont get much time with the baby because of her voyage to India. I am so touched by this. I recommend reading her blog to get more details on this story, and follow her in India. Oh…Kay* is the one in blue, and her sister is by her side. Not only this, but she has a puppy by the name of Howard. When we Skype, I get to see Howard in person with his cute self. But she loves, and adores her dog. I am sure leaving him for a year will be so hard for them both. Strong woman with a big heart. Awaiting your return for a collabo lady!

Hitting My Stride

Desiree and her husband have been blessed with a baby. She gives such a true voice to her story, and her feelings of wanting to be a mother. Moves me to tears because some women feel absolutely nothing. But the wanting of a baby is even more special, once your blessed with it. She is due very soon as well, and what a beauty I am sure this baby will be. Head on over to her blog to get the personal feel, and honesty that is written with every post. I enjoy reading, and even laugh out loud sometimes as I do. Wishing you guys the best.

Diamonds, Pearls and Crazy in the world of Barbie Jones

Miss Barbie. Miss Barbie. Feisty, Honest, and always ready to tell it like it TIS. Well she had told us that she too is with child. In fact, she and her sister are both pregnant. What a blessing their parents will have. Two babies!!!! She documents whatever she likes from home décor, to thrifting, makeup, TV name it. There is even a video of her cooking fried chicken, and popping grease everywhere as she talks on the phone. She gives me comedy relief at times, just in time. So head on over to get to know her. You can tell by her smile, that she is a riot…just to fun.

Chic Little House

Mrs. CLH is…yes with child. She gives us a great insight on changes in her home, with her hubby and son. I tell you she is always up to something. I cant keep up half of the time, but enjoy the read. I am enjoying the baby posts that she gives, and just adore the bed for the bambino. Check out all her projects, and where she stands now. She is just as sweet as she wants to be. She has that smile that I call welcoming. And yep, that’s her and her hubby up front and personal with Nate Berkus.

So pretty soon, I will have a few baby posts to share as my niece or nephew grows. Gosh you would think I was the one pregnant. I am still sworn to secrecy…I know that I am blogging it, but as I mentioned in the past….I have no family members that read my blog. So word wont get out…until my Aunt in ATL reads this blog. Which by then, the baby will be here I bet…LOL.

Okay. The lady with the fro in the first picture was on Property Virgins with Sandra. Is this the one moving? I recognize the "model" lol and her baby bump.

Hey Tam, do you want another...nevermind...I see the eyes you are giving me so I won't continue.

AWWWWWWAAAH!!!!! THANK YOU TAM :) I so ADORE YOU! and congrats on being an AUNTIE!!! YAY!

kay*(from india.with love) said...

Tam...seriously when I opened your blog this morning (now) and saw this - I'm a bit choked up. My sister is due in TWO DAYS and I couldn't be more excited. I've had a dream every night for the past week (seriously!) that my sister was in delivery and I get to meet my niece. This is my sis' first child and my first time becoming an Aunt...I'm just so excited and hope she delivers on time (and not late!) since I'm scheduled to leave this weekend....Thank you for the kind kind words about me...and for shouting out Howard!!!

Congrats to you Tam on becoming an Aunt! I know you will shower this baby with so much love.

Congrats to all the ladies and their fams you featured who are expecting their own bundle of joy!

(& you have a very good eye Mr. GWH - my sister, with the fro, was on Property Virgins years ago though they constantly replay the episode. I was also on with her as her 'support'. Fun times.)


TamStyles said...

@MR GWH I just figured out what you meant..DUH TO ME. But I would have loved another baby a few years back. But my kids are to big now. I enjoy them being able to feed themselves. See with me being an aunt, I can do it when I want to....LOL.

Mrs. Chic said...

Congrats on becoming and Auntie!! Such a huge blessing :) Aunts have the best of both worlds...I wish my sister would have another!

I'm so excited to read these ladies journeys into motherhood and becoming an auntie too :)

Thanks so much for including me among the ladies you've mentioned, we are beyond thrilled to have another one!

Desiree said...

Thank you so much for the shout-out! I feel so humbled that a big-girl blogger like you comes by to visit! It's an honor!

Congrats on being an Auntie!

Awww, how exciting!!! Aren't babies just the BEST!!! I love all the babies, maybe that is why I have so many god-children. LOL

Congratulations on becoming a Aunt! I saw your announcement on facebook. This child will probably feel like your own, minus the stretch marks and labor pains, lol.

Best wishes to all the other bloggers mentioned! What a beautiful privilege in the ability to give life.
