To be (pregnant) or not to be? That is THE question...

Here's the deal...

I had two roommates in college, Jennifer and Cara. As best friends go, they're pretty awesome. We forged some strong friendships while living together and were practically inseparable for 4 straight years. So, it makes sense that our futures have turned out so similarly. Jennifer was the first of us to marry her college sweetie and have a little boy, then Cara married hers and had a boy. A year later I married my college sweetie and, you guessed it, had a boy.

Jennifer announced that she was pregnant with #2 a couple months ago and Cara just informed me that she is pregnant with #2. Notice the pattern here?

Not sure if I'm ready to be pregnant again, although it would be fun for the roomies to be pregnant together. I'm hoping God doesn't find the coincidence as entertaining as my mom and sisters do...if He does, I'm probably pregnant right now.

Children are a gift from the Lord;
they are a reward from him.

I have red hair!


I needed a change so I decided to change my color.
Okay...that's a lie.

Honestly, it's time I stop pretending that I still have golden locks. Unfortunately, embracing the truth means that I have...ugh...dishwater blonde hair, dark dishwater.
Yeah, that wasn't happening.

In the past my hair has pulled red when I've had it dyed blonde and it never bothered me, I've had a few stylists tell me that I should go red and I have 3 sisters with different hues of red hair.
I figured, 'what the heck' and started looking at pictures.

Me before.

I have always loved the classic Julia Roberts red.


I really liked Lindsay Lohan's blonde highlights in the red.


My red hair!


I absolutely LOVE it! What do you think?
Special thanks to my stylist, Colleen Baartz
