What's happened since I last updated? My photos remind me of the timeline of events, haha. This is going to be one helluva entry. But it’s better than me spamming ya’ll with a million entries for each separate event, right? ;)
We had an ice storm in January. Ice/snow is always exciting for us here in midwest Georgia, because we don't see it often!
Valentine's day was great in the Brooks house. We surprised the kids with little treat bags... candy, stickers, a card, and a stuffed animal. They love little surprises!
Jeremiah and I got a date night for Valentine's. I would have been happy with an evening alone with him, but he made it even better by surprising me with a BEAUTIFUL heart-shaped diamond necklace, a nice card with a wonderful note written inside, and a rose. ♥ I had already surprised him with a Nook and cover for Valentine’s day, a few weeks earlier. :) We had a great dinner at Houlihans, which has pretty much become our 'special place' to go whenever we have a date night.
I was in dire need of a haircut. Every year I get it chopped short, then grow it out the rest of the year, and then chop it off again. Not this year! I chopped it all off in January 2010, but for 2011 I decided to grow it out. But I had to get something done to it, it was looking plain, so I got the ends trimmed and added some layers. Not a major change, but noticeable enough (for me at least!).

Several of my friends on LJ were doing this, so I made one of those accent videos. Was fun! ^_^ I liked getting to hear everyone's accents. My still pic makes me look like a crazy person. No bueno.
