Exonerated murder mom CASEY ANTHONY video diary surfaces!­ For the first time since her acquittal for murder in July, Anthony is speaking out and showing her face – in a personal video diary she said she recorded in October that has now appeared on "Good Morning America' and "Today".  It first appeared on a Facebook page.

"It's just a little surreal how much things have changed since July, and how many things haven't changed," she says in the video.

 "But the good thing is that things are starting to look up and things are starting to change in a good way. I just hope that things stay good and that they only get better." 

Casey sports a new look – a blonde bob with black-framed glasses and a white tank top on camera.

Anthony, 25, talks about her life in probation – how thrilled she is to be free and have a computer, phone and camera she can call her own.

She also says she has adopted  a dog. 

The video has few details about where she is, as she continues her probation at an undisclosed location. The probation ends late next month. 

It is unclear how the video leaked, but it may be just the beginning. 

"This is the first of many, and I'm looking forward to this," Anthony said.

 "It's a little scary, because I hate being on camera.

"But I need to conquer that fear at some point, and this is a good start."

FYI: Her daughter Caylee is not mentioned once in the video.
