March 2010 - A Sequel to April 2010

I forgot to mention in March that I got 19 inches cut off of my luscious locks and donated it to Locks of Love! I was in shock, as well as everyone else, when I saw the end product. I wasn't expecting my hair to be so short afterward. I really really like it!

April 2010

So, I guess I should catch everyone up on what's going on with the Jacksons. We sold the Beamer (did I tell yall that before?) anyway, Larry's parents in San Antonio found us a 2001 Chevy Suburban that was used on a ranch. The burb was in good shape minus a dent in the rear bumper and some brush scratches on the side. Other than that, it's in great condition and I always wanted one! Now we can take my family on road trips with us and when I have 6 kids (haha, soo just kidding) it will come in handy! Now the caddy is in SA trying to be sold but if it doesn't sell down there we may just take it back and use it as a second vehicle for a while.

We're still trying to plan our third trip to Disney World for the first week in December. We haven't bought our tickets yet but hopefully with our tax return we can do that. I'm so ready for a vacay! I know it's a while away, but just planning for it is exciting!

I'm still excercising pretty much every day. I'm down 26 pounds since September, but I could still do better. I finally hit the 2000 calories burned mark last friday 4/16. Actually it was 2026! I've picked out a 2 piece from VS that I want but I haven't purchased it yet. I still want to lose more, plus I'm hoping it goes on sale!

We're doing some small renovations in our house. Larry has taken down most of the cherry wallpaper in the kitchen (which I really liked but whatever). Now he has to take down the rest of it, texture and paint the walls. We are going to repaint the living room and den too. We just want to hire somebody to do it though. When we first moved in it was an ugly peach color, we had it painted "Autumn Stroll" which is really a more burnt orange color and now we want it more neutral like a stone or a grey color. I really liked the Autumn Stroll but it's just too much for two large rooms. Larry also took out the cabinets over the bar and now we're missing one smaller cabinet door and some stain. We have to get this all done before I host Bunco in September!

So, that's it for now!
