Without further ado

Hehe, get it, ado? ha! Oh man, I think I need more sleep :P

I love my new haircut still, I feel all sassy and fun again. This picture was taken the day after I curled it, when I got up that morning I just brushed it, so easy and it looks good still :).

ETA: I just got back from Mervyns, I decided that I'm tired of my hand me down dresses and my dresses I purchased in High School (graduated in 1993, eek). I have two new skirts and a new shirt, ahh, feels great to spoil myself from time to time :). The "Feeling Old" blues are gone, yay!

I'm looking so old!

I started this post in my head about a week ago, after Stu and I had decided to get contacts. I've never had contacts so I wasn't sure I'd be able to get them. I was going to get new glasses at least. Much to my surprise, they do have contacts that work for me (I have astigmatisms in both eyes!), after a week and a follow up appointment, I'm now cleared for contacts and it's awesome!

I need to warn you though, I don't photograph well (and this is where the comment on the kids always making weird faces on my field trip post), not to say that I'm some drop dead gorgeous woman, but I'm not too bad looking, after seeing these photos I may have to re-evaluate that thought ;). I did take these photos of myself too, so that didn't help ;).

Here is a pic of me with no glasses....

And after, with my really cool sunglasses.

I just look so tired and worn down in these photos. I'm sure the, no style hair doesn't help either.

I do have to brag about the place we purchased these glasses from SunGlasses Only
They were awesome to work with and had a huge variety of sunglasses from "cheap" ($50) to "holy crap, how much?" (the most expensive ones I tried on were $350). I recommend them to everyone. Oh and they had these awesome massage chairs too, that's worth the trip in and of itself ;) (many people came in, sat in the chairs and got a massage and then left, it was funny (free to use the chair) ).

I also want to add that I went to visit my parents for the weekend and got a new haircut. I think it looks great! so I'll try to get L to take a pic of me and I'll update this post later today.

Remember my before shot?

Of my hardwood floors as I was refinishing them? No, well here is a refresher....

And here they are, all finished :).

I'm very happy with the results. I really dread doing the bedroom floors though, this was really hard work. I did most of the sanding by hand, with the little rubber block thing and it sucked. I'm thinking we'll have to get a nice big sander to do the other floors if we decided to refinish them too :).

Field trip!

Yesterday was our first field trip with our new homeschool group. We had a lot of fun and the kids *gasp* learned some new things in the process.

It was very windy, but pretty warm considering how cold it has been in the mornings. We went to a local apple orchard, we learned about cherries and apples and had a fun wagon ride to the apple processing plant. The boys loved going in the big refrigerator, no I did not take a pic in there, I'm whimpy and it was cold :P.

Here is Little Man, why can't I get a normal shot of him?

Or them? It must be genetic. (you'll understand why I say this in an upcoming post)

Oh wait, I can, if they aren't looking :).

Maybe eating fresh apple cider donuts will distract them enough to allow a good shot? Yeah, worked okay.

We had a great time and look forward to the next field trip at the end of next week!
