Happy 3 Months Leo!

He has been going through his three month growth spurt, which I would have never believed in except through experience...growing really is hard work!

We love our little lion!

We share a life-changing decision and all we get is 2 little comments? Come on! I know we don't usually get that many comments and it isn't as great as Leo's birth, but it has got to be more exciting than the post about the doctor telling me I was gaining too much weight which got a whopping 4 comments...right?

In any case this is our blog's 200th post- yipee!

Well, it is official...Nick and I have some news to share with the world. (Don't worry, we aren't having another baby! Can you even imagine?) Ever since we got married the plan was for Nicholas to go back to school to get an MBA someday. We had thought about starting a program in the fall of 2011 for a while and decided to still go for it even though we now had Leo to add in to the equation...one thing is for sure, it will never get easier to go back to school! Nick applied to a handful of programs and got accepted to them all, however when it came down to it we were stuck deciding between two excellent programs- BYU and Texas A&M.

Who wouldn't want to go back to their alma mater? A place that we know we like and is comfortable to us, not to mention a great MBA program...BYU had a lot going in the "pro" column. Texas A&M has a great program too and they offered Nick a scholarship, but it never would have been our initial first choice...but it just kept lingering around. For whatever reason we just couldn't count it out and whether we wanted to accept it or not, it just felt like the right decision. So there you go...


Now we are very excited about the decision :) College Station isn't the most glamorous place in the world and I have already shed tears about our housing options there, but we are really excited for Nick to start this program. Plus it is only an hour away from Grammie & Grandpa in Houston and a few hours away from the Cosbys, which includes Leo's "babysitter"...Belle!

We will be moving sometime in July so Nicholas can start orientation on August 1st. It is a condensed, therefore very rigorous and intense, MBA program; it is only 16 months! I am grateful that Nick wants to go back to school and that he is willing to do so for our family. Plus I am excited for Leo to be able to embrace his Texas roots!

Gig 'em Aggies!

Product Review: Noxzema Deep Cleansing Cream

One thing I have decided for sure is that good skin is essential for motherhood as I have neither time or desire to put forth the effort of doing much for my makeup (or hair for that matter). I was not one of those lucky souls who was blessed with clear skin and I have worn makeup since 5th grade...and I have tried just about every face wash known to man, prescription and not. Now I am not saying that my skin has been perfect since using this cleanser and I am not throwing out my makeup yet, but this wash has really been great...once I got over smelling like I was a teenager again (come on, you know that Noxzema smell). It takes off my makeup at night, is creamy and gentle, and leaves my face feeling clean; and my complexion is definitely clearer. :)

(Now I know everyone's skin is different and I am not guaranteeing that it will work for you, but I have already bought my sister a bottle because I liked it so much...so it may be worth a try if you are in the market for a new facial cleanser.)
