I made a decision!

Remember the post about my hair? The one where I was trying to decide if I should cut my hair or not? Well, I finally made a decision! See:
Just a before and after! It's a bit different, but I like it! Sometimes I really miss the long hair, just because I really like ponytails, but change is good!

The rest of Christmas!

Okay, where did I leave off? Oh, yes, Christmas! Don't worry, this post will be MUCH shorter. Before I start, I just want to say that Tyler took his bike on a test ride yesterday, and judging from his smile when he got back, he really liked it. I think his words were "It's like riding on air!" 

Christmas Day was great! We actually got to have a Christmas morning at our own house, and it was lovely. I woke up at 6:00, but managed to wait a whole 45 minutes to wake Tyler up. I did pretty much all of the Christmas shopping this year (Amazon makes it way too easy to order stuff) and I must say, I did pretty good!

Oh, but guess what?? I got a KitchenAid from Tyler's parents!!!! 

(Tyler got me a KitchenAid attachment for Christmas that is pretty much the best thing ever!)
I love it! I'm so thankful for families and for all that they do for us, and for their examples. I couldn't ask for better people to spend life with. 

Can I just say one more thing? TGIF!!!

The great (early) Christmas surprise!

I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and New Year's! I know we did! I just want to tell you a Christmas story real quick before I forget... 

This year I was just real excited for Christmas! As soon as Thanksgiving was over I was in full-on Christmas mode. Mostly because Tyler's biggest present had already been ordered! (The present is really from my parents, I just picked it out. Thanks Mom and Dad!!) You see, Tyler and I have never really done surprises for each other, so this was a new experience. I'm not good at keeping secrets from him. 

Unfortunately, a week before Christmas I realized that I ordered the big present too early, and the 30-day return period would be OVER before Christmas even got here. How could I have not realized this sooner?? I started freaking out... What if he wanted to exchange it? There was only one solution...


I was slightly disappointed because the present didn't make it until Christmas morning, but as soon as it was time to open it I couldn't hardly contain my excitement. All along Tyler thought it was a gift for both of us... He was wrong...

It was a new road bike for him!! (the picture is after we opened it... I don't think I have taken a picture of the actual bike) 

Tyler was very surprised, and it just made me so so happy! I will say though, it was quite a relief to not have to keep that secret for the extra week.

I will tell you about the rest of our Christmas VERY soon. 😀

Did you have any fun surprises this year?
