Lots of changes going on right now.
Our new van! Perry and Christi came this past weekend to deliver our beautiful new vehicle--a Toyota Sienna--and take our old one back to the dealership in NM. (Their visit is for another post.) I have to say that I am in love with our new ride. It's not the hottest thing ever, but it's awesome. We don't have to bend over to put both carseats in the car, it has a brand new DVD player (especially for Eva, and she LOVES it), and it's just a great family car. With two kids and a mini-van, we have officially arrived in family land. It's good to be here.
My haircut! After weeks of desperately wanting to cut it and completely giving up on styling it, I chopped it off. Short. And I LOVE it. Who knew that my favorite haircut would happen in Altus, Oklahoma? I feel so much happier when I look cute. I am NEVER growing my hair out again. Please, people, if any time in the next 5 years you read on this blog that I am growing it out, stop me. For real. I am a short-haired girl, and that's all there is to it. Don't I look hot? I know.
Sleeping habits. Both of our children are normally amazingly good sleepers, but we have had a couple rough nights this past week. Can I say again how much I want to get into our house??? It will solve so many problems...
Eating habits. After one day of South Beach diet, I decided I couldn't do it while nursing. But I am trying to lose weight so that when I get to Utah in a couple weeks I can hit up Park City outlets and get a new fall wardrobe. New clothes are always a great motivation to lose weight--especially after the yucky maternity phase. I LOVE not being pregnant!! So wish me luck on healthy eating. Oh, how I love food...this is not going to be easy.
Clothes. I am so over maternity clothes. Like, it hurts my self-esteem every day when I have to wear them. Why do I have to wear them? Because all of my real person clothes are sitting in boxes in Washington. So today I went shopping (oh, and yesterday too) and bought a dang cute new pair of shorts and three new shirts. I feel MUCH better now. Like my grandma used to say and my mom still does, sometimes all you need to make you feel better is a new outfit. And I say, why stop at one outfit when you can get three?
