A Change...

Good Friday Morning!!! Life is going along pretty well here with baby Kat. Last night she finally slept soundly for the first time in a few nights so we are both feeling a bit better and happier today. In fact, she is asleep again right now so I better get this blog entry done quick so I can get a shower in this morning too. :)

A lot of you know about my aversion to finding hairdressers...I don't do it. Since we moved to North Carolina two years ago my hair has not been professionally cut the entire time. I have simply trimmed it myself. But after 9 months on pre-natal vitamins, my hair had gotten entirely too long and Kat had taken to swinging on it every time she threw a tantrum so a cut was in order.

Before:


I had no idea what I wanted to do with my new cut so I simply went in and gave the hairdresser carte blanche to do what she wanted (for all of my aversion to getting my hair cut...I really have pretty easy hair to manage...it works with pretty much any cut.) This is the result:


I also re-joined Weight Watchers yesterday. My weight was a big part of why my pregnancy was so distressing. I lost my extra weight (that I have had my entire life) 5 1/2 years ago and have pretty much kept it off...until I got pregnant. I am a lifetime member of WW, but really haven't been to a meeting since we moved to England 4 years ago. So I am starting anew on the weight loss boat, although I am happy to say that I have already lost 30 lbs since Kat was born 3 weeks ago...only 25 more to go (yes, I do actually gain that much when I get pregnant!) UGH!

And just because we can't have a blog post without a photo of little bit...here she is snuggling with her daddy yesterday afternoon...


I hope that you have a fun weekend planned! I am *hoping* to find some time without a baby in my arms so I can get some serious crafting done. I am quickly falling behind and there are a couple of DT's that I want to do submissions for that need to be done in the next week.
smiles,
