I have not been to a movie in months and saw 2 this weekend (New Moon & Blindside) and LOVED them both!

I only have 2 more care plans this semester. YEAH!!

I have 2 tests on Tuesday this week. Ahhhh!!

I have 2 boys who are begging for a sleepover this week.

I have 2 girls who need haircuts.

I was lucky enough to see my 2 month old nephew 2 times in the last week.

I am in charge of bringing 2 items to Thanksgiving dinner (rolls and my favorite cranberry jello salad).

It started snowing about 2 hours ago and I am wondering how much we will end up with? 2 inches, 22 inches?

is how I am feeling after today. I wish it was because I had lost weight but I am slowly working on that. Today I made another kind of change.

I went from this:

And this:

To this:

I decided awhile back that I would cut my hair and donate it to Locks of Love, but wasn't sure how long I wanted to grow it or exactly how short I would go. Lately I have been feeling....blah (stressed, stuck, in need of change, etc). So I decided to cut my hair now, it was long enough to donate, and I was hoping it would make me feel a little less blah. It worked! 15 inches of hair later and I feel lighter. Not just my head but my heart as well. I don't know how something as simple as a haircut can make me feel inspired. Inspired to try harder, inspired to make some much needed changes, inspired to smile more, to want to smile more.
Now, I just hope Mike likes it too! He is out of town working for a few days and I have not told him about lightening my load...can't wait to see his reaction!
