Sassy Pants did Locks of Love yesterday!

Yesterday I took my 7yo daughter to Great Clips to have her hair cut for Locks of Love.
She's been talking about it for a while, spent the last week begging me to cut it, then thursday her friend told her SHE'd done it yesterday we took the plunge.

Overall it was a great experience! Maybe someday I'll do it again (I've done it twice)...

Sassy Pants before...with her Waist Length hair. Sassy hasnt really ever had more than a trim, so this was a HUGE decision for her.

I need to remember to stick that braid in the mail!

Sassy! We are SO proud of you!!

to donate or not to donate- that is the question.....

About a year ago my sister talked me into growing my hair out for her wedding. She talked Sassy Pants into it too. Now that the wedding is over, Sassy and I are talking about donating our waist long tresses to Locks of Love.

At first I was really gung ho- ready to hit the salon and chop it all off. Go for something short and summery and be free of my daily ponytails and messy buns. Sassy Pants wasnt so sure about participating this time around (I've done it 2 other times). Then suddenly I saw pictures of my hair at the wedding and I want to keep my long pretty hair!

I'd love to hear opinions!!
Enjoy the long pretty hair while I have it or chop it off?
I know- I know...this blog entry is nothing without pictures!!

hmm....maybe I'll keep it a while...

wednesday- "new" shorts

ok technically these shorts are new...
I bought them last spring and then discovered that I bought the wrong pair- I tried on 2 sizes in the store, and accidentally put back the ones that were just right and bought the pair that was too small. I thought I'd wasted $8 but prayed that I'd lose some weight and be able to wear them eventually...
So they've been sitting in my closet for a year. AND NOW THEY FIT!!

Lost 10lbs and gained a summer wardrobe!!

Its official, I lost 10lbs!
My goal was to lose it by my sister's wedding last weekend, and I lost 9lbs by the wedding. Not too bad...I was trying to nurse a toddler AND lose 1 pound a week...
The best part...

Because I lost those 10lbs I decided I should dig around in my just bearly too small clothes box and see if I had any shorts that fit, because otherwise I would have to go shorts shopping (ugh!). Normally I would have just felt bad about myself because I couldn't even get the shorts up over my thighs, cried a little and then had a bowl of ice cream. Today was a different story. Not only did I get the shorts on, but I zipped them all shut too. AND I could sit down comfortably in them! I ended up with 4 pairs of shorts and a skirt! (this is all pre-baby #4 stuff!)
