Well, I thought I should finally update those of you who haven't seen us in the last month... we got a letter in the mail from a car dealership stating that they would give us above market for our car if we traded it in... and below market for a brand new or used car on their lot. So we thought we had nothing to lose and went in to see how fair a deal they'd give us. What we didn't expect was to come home with a van! We got a 2008 Chevy Uplander for less than half the price and they gave us almost double what our little 2005 Chevy Aveo was worth! We love our new van- it's fully loaded with all the bells and whistles. And Serra loves watching movies on the DVD player while we drive- especially at night. Also, her car seat is on a captain's chair so it's a little higher up than she's used to and she can actually see completely out the window! So we're all thrilled. Here are some pictures I took today, but we've had the van since the end of November- we were keeping it a surprise for our Thanksgiving and Christmas vacation, but decided we've waited long enough!
Also, I have been kind of sick of wearing ponytails everyday, but I didn't have the time or the energy to waste on doing my hair each day. So I went to a new stylist and paid the most I've ever paid for a haircut [not hard to do since I would go to the student places here and use coupons...] but I LOVE it! There are so many ways to style it- and it just takes a few minutes and sometimes a little product. Here's one of the styles I wear it in most of the time. [It's also dyed black, but my sister Paige did that for me a couple months ago... I need to redo my roots]. Sorry the pictures are a little blurry, but our camera is kind of on the fritz.
