What's Up

So what's up with the Lowry's recently?? Well i'll tell you.

We recently received some bad news. Maikal received his last rejection letter from Dental School. Which means we will be living in Lethbridge until next Fall. It is of course very upsetting. No one likes getting rejected! But I'm also not going to dwell and do nothing until we do get in. I plan on working very hard this next year just focusing on my marriage and trying to build a happier and more loving home while he's around more.

4 weeks from tomorrow we will be leaving this Island! It's so crazy to think about. Do I really want to leave??? I'm having mixed feelings. You seriously can't beat the weather here... plus there's the ocean! OHHHHHH THE OCEAN!! I'm gunna miss you..... It's been Ben's own playground and I'm afraid I won't be able to match the awesomeness of this place, but Im sure he'll forget over time. But, it is definitely time to leave. I miss home with every bone in my body. I miss my family, I miss my friends, I miss our home, I miss all the wonderful canadian foods, I miss sooooo many things that I didn't even think I would miss....like the COLD! Believe it or not...I actually miss playing in the snow, it's just been too long! We've slowy been selling all our stuff, and it's going good so far. I'm having my first open house this weekend so we'll see how we do.

As of recently, Ben has learned how to climb out of his crib and now all our schedules are messed up. For the first 10 days or so, he would just play in his room for hours before he would collapse on the floor for his nap. Plus he now gets out of Bed 2 HOURS earlier than before. He now wakes up between 6:30-7am, which is killing me. This morning he thought it would be a good idea to wake up at 5:30...no Ben...it was NOT a good idea. But now we've managed to figure out the naps. He stays in Bed and sleeps his regular 2 hours from about 1-3pm. Now we just need to work on the mornings...which I don't even know how to start! But I guess this will be another learning curb in sleep training. Wish us luck! Especially for the 4 HOUR time difference we will be experiencing soon!!! BARF!
But here are some funny pictures Ive taken of him since this all started. It gives me a good laugh.




Ok so now onto Baby Aurora.
I am 24 weeks and feeling very large and in charge! Seriously....i need to stop eating or I'll probably explode all the candy and sandwiches Ive been eating. I can't even bare to look at the scale now. I've still tried to keep up with doing Zumba, but it's getting harder every time to do the moves. But it sure does feel good to exercise. 
I don't remember this much movement with Ben, she is a WILD ONE! And it's probably just me, but she seems humungous! Like super big. She can punch both my sides at once so it makes it seem like she's so long and will end up being a 10 pound baby! Please stay small please stay small please stay small...

The Bangs

My whole life I've always thought that I could never ever do bangs just because I have curly hair and I would look ridiculous with short curly bangs. And although none of these pictures are curly hair, I think I can imagine what it would look like. I really like a lot of these styles, but that could just be my plain eyes just looking for a change! And I do straighten my hair way more often when I am back on the mainland so these photo's wont be unrealistic. I found this sweet website that allowed me to change up my hair styles to what I somewhat wanted and these are the ones I've chosen to base what I want on.

I was just wanting some opinions on these style for me! What do you think? Fairly short? Somewhat short? Keep them long? Obviously these look a little off, but use your imagination for the actual finished product on me!

Hmmmmm...choices choice....
