I started writing this post at 5am today as I was up feeding my baby and feeling very awake. I had just had 5 straight hours of sleep. YES, 5 whole hours!! That's rare thing with my babe. She likes to eat every 2 hours or so. Well I wrote 2 posts and scrapped both of them. They just weren't right. Maybe because it was 5am. Who knows.

So in place of those posts, here is a new one - my top 5 favorite things!

1. Being a mom
Being a parent takes the cake. Quite literally - who has time to bake or eat cake?
I knew I'd love being a mom, but had no idea I'd love it this much. It's challenging, rewarding, amazing and so much fun wrapped into one big ball. Once the nerves and postpartum hormones went away, I felt like I was meant to be a mom. It probably helps that I have an amazing husband that is also an amazing dad :)

2. Miette
Miette is a pastry shop in San Francisco. I've never been there so I can't comment on the baked goods. But I do have their cookbook and I'm obsessed with it. I got it last Christmas and it's the cutest most charming cookbook I own.  The colors and pictures are beautiful and the page edges are scalloped. It's very unique. The desserts in it look so good - life changing good! My goal is to make something out of it before the end of 2012.

My name is Amanda and I'm a pin-a-holic.

Yep, I still love pinterest!
 I spend a lot of time there especially around 2-3am. When I'm up....feeding my baby :)

I've decided to change my Top 5 to my Top 3. It's taken me over 6 hours to do this....that's life with a baby!

Have a great weekend!
