Absent for quite some time

I have not been blogging as much this past week. It was my week off from school so of course that means it was my busiest week ever. I did finally get my new do. LOVE IT! It's amazing how empowering a new hair cut can make you feel. I do love my life as a mother, wife, student, employee, daughter, friend, Young Women Leader, etc. but with my new cut I feel it's more me...who I was before I was in all of those other roles. Does that make sense? I guess what I'm saying is that I love that I get to spend 10 minutes doing my hair instead of 10 seconds. I don't get enough me time, which I don't think anyone who is a mommy ever does. So with this hair cut I have to make a little extra me time. Anyway, last week I also got my jewelry. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT! I tried taking a picture of it not on me since my hubby isn't home to take one with me in it. (That's why my hair cut picture is in the kitchen...lovely self portrait.) So I'll have to post a picture or two whenever he gets home. I received the circle necklace that I won. I decided to put Carson and his birthday on it. Whenever I sent his birthday to Lisa, I had to check it like 500 times because I'm so bad at saying his birthday is July 25 not July 24 (His cousin was born the day after him and I guess that's why I always say the 25th). Anyway, the necklace is so cute and I have received tons of compliments on it. I also got a blue cobalt pearl necklace with a pottery shard pendant and matching earrings. They are absolutely STUNNING! You have to check out her blog and website!! So right now I'm totally obsessed with jewelry, if you couldn't tell. Two Sundays until my birthday!!! Anyone wondering what to get me?? THE PERFECT GIFT!! They're only $16. Of course they are from Lisa's blog. Alright enough about cousin's wife had her baby, little Abigail. Carson now has two cousins named Abigail. He calls her Abbey and it is so flippin cute! It makes me want a baby even more! She was supposed to send me some pictures via e-mail, but hasn't yet so I thought I'd post some of everyone in the waiting room at 1 a.m.
We were watching some late night poker tv show. I definitely knew why they showed it at that one would watch it at any other time. Anyway, Abigail was 7 lb. 12 oz. and 21 inches long. She is ADORABLE! Well, I have to finish dinner. Chicken Salad! YUMMM!
