The hubs and I took advantage of the Cash for Appliances program and got ourselves a new fridge with part of our tax return. ๐Ÿ˜›

Isn’t it pretty??? I’ve always wanted a stainless steel fridge with french doors.


I’m anxiously awaiting the arrival of my new Sketchers Shape Ups! They’re supposed to get here today. I really hope the whole thing’s not a huge gimmick and that I really will be able to work out my calves and butt while walking around. ๐Ÿ™‚

Recently, the hubs and I have both started going to the gym again. He goes to the 24 Hour Fitness by our house at 5 A.M. (!) and I go to the gym at work. It’s worked out well for both of us so far…even though it’s only been 2 weeks. He wakes up at that ungodly hour everyday ANYWAY because he’s weird like that and I get to go to the gym during lunch rather than stuff myself full of unhealthy food. I hope we can keep it up. It’s been more than a year since Tyler’s birth so I can’t really use that as an excuse anymore. Plus, nothing’s a bigger motivator to get healthy than the thought of not being able to keep up with and not being able to be with our little girl simply because our bodies have given out, ya know?

Tyler was WAAAYYY overdue for a haircut. She was born with a full head of hair that stood straight up. Then when it finally settled down, it turned into a mullet. Now, with her new do, she looks even MORE like a little boy. Sigh.



When I first got pregnant, tons of people came to me and offered me tons of advice and warnings on what I’d be feeling and impulsive things I might do from my raging hormones. One thing that I kept hearing over and over was that most pregnant moms will go and cut off all their hair. I never thought that I’d be so impulsive as to chop off all my hair since I’ve had long hair since 1999. But this weekend, I did it!! After weeks of dreading my morning showers from the thought of having to blow dry my hair and enduring the heat, I went and cut off all my hair. And I’m not talking just a trim. I don’t even think I can measure it in inches! Haha..considering how long my hair was before (more than half way down my back) and how short it is now (above my jawline), I think I cut off a good foot of hair! ๐Ÿ™‚ Cat actually reminded me that I could’ve probably donated my hair. Drat! Ah well, next time.

Do I like it? It’s definitely different and much MUCH cooler. Not to mention A LOT easier to take care of…but I think I’m still getting used to it. It’s been a day and I still find myself doing a double-take every time I walk past a mirror. One major plus is that I don’t have to worry about holding back my hair when I get sick at night! Ugh. But I do have to admit, it’s a lot shorter than I intended it to be. My hairstylist got a little scissor happy once he heard that I wanted a new look. And my haircut does kind ofย  remind me of an Oompa Loompa. ๐Ÿ˜›

Anyhow, I’ll go home and take a picture tonite and let you be the judge. Ha.
