The school year is slowly but surely winding down and I am just dying for Amelie and my husband to be home!!! I can't wait to start our summer schedule! It's absolutely gorgeous out--the weather has been cooler than normal and the NY girl in me LOVES it!! 
Anyways....Maevey had a playdate with her BFF yesterday and came home with a surprise--HAIRCUT! The damage:
The pile I had to cut off to even it up:
  The super cute result!

It wasn't planned--but I love Maeve's short hair and I think it will be perfect for the summer. She looks so cute and big!
Not much else is new--just plugging along. I've stuck with my eating-right plan (using My Fitness Pal App) counting calories and have continued my morning running in preparation for a 5K on July 4th! My running is going really well and I can FINALLY run 2 miles again without breaking a sweat. WOOT! Weeks and weeks of dedication are finally paying off! I am soooo not a natural athlete so it's really difficult for me to even run short distances without lots of consistent practice. I've been going out 5 days a week for 3 months to get to this point. Gah. Oh well--thankful for working lungs and legs--that's for sure!! 
As far as eating--watching my food hasn't been as hard as I thought. I am eating a little differently but I actually can eat MORE now that I understand what calories are where. It's kind of amazing. I've lost 15 pounds in 3 weeks--I can't believe it! It hasn't even been hard! It will get harder as time goes on, I'm sure, but it's super encouraging to me! 
That's it for now--just going to lace up my shoes and take the kids for a walk to visit the ducks at the lake down the street. Happy Tuesday!

Ok, 2 things : )

Norah experimented with the scissors while at grandma's last week. It must be the age : ) THankfully, it was a smallish chunk and blends in pretty well, so we just left it alone. Although, she is begging for a shorter hair cut. And I am thinking I better do it before she attempts it herself! And Maeve's hair is adorable...you may have just inspired me!

And 15 pounds in there weeks!?!?! Way to go! Thant is awesome! I've been running for 3 months. And have lost NO weight. BUt am still eating everything under the sun and can only get myself out to run consistently 2 times a week. I am inspired by your 5x's per week schedule, and am trying to figure out a way to get more runs in! But hubby leaves for work at 6:00 and this girl is most certainly not getting up at 4:30 to go running...so I'l have to squeeze it in elsewhere : )
