Mommy & Me Monday

This photo is from yesterday, Easter. It was a little chilly out, so we didn't eat outside. But we got some pics outside. Our neighbor got a bouncy house for the day, so Tara was in that most of the day.

Nail Files week # 120

I did my Easter nails today. The pinky is Pure Ice~Turquiose & Caicos with Pure ice~ Twinkle, then Light pink is Essie~French Affair with Del Sol~Calypso, Middle finger Maybelline Color show~Blue Blowout with Sally Hansen~Hard Lemonade & the purple is Sephora by OPI~Iris I was Thinner.

The bunny didn't come out so good. I have the Turquoise & Caicos (greenish) & Pure Ice~Platinum & the black is Hard Candy~Bite of Black (This is new & I haven't used it yet, other than the eyes & nose on the bunny). The Pure ice Platinum is all thick & lumpy, so I need to get a new 1 soon.

Yum of the Day/Tasty Tuesday

 I found this recipe on Lauren Conrad's website. I tried it tonight & it's really good. I think I might add a little more honey & cinnamon though. I used Vanilla Rice Milk instead. Here is the recipe.

1 cup almond milk
1 tsp honey
2 drops vanilla extract
A pinch of cinnamon

Pour the milk into a microwave safe mug and cook it in the microwave until the milk begins to foam. Stir in the honey and vanilla, then sprinkle with cinnamon. Enjoy warm. This is also a great solution to try if you often have trouble sleeping.

Ice skating

Today was Tara's last ice skating lesson. Her 2nd session. She had her test today & got her 2nd patch. My Dad was a hockey referee when I was a kid. So I was always at the rink & also took lessons when I was a kid. I hadn't skated in 14 years. I went & my Dad too since it was Tara's last lesson. I didn't do too bad, my ankles were really hurting though. It was so cold too. My nose was totally pink & it took me 2 hrs to warm up after. It was a fun day.

Nail Files week # 119 & Spring Polish swap reveal

My Partner was Sarah from Small Town Iowan. I had mentioned that I loved purple. It was a Spring polish swap. Stop by her blog. She has 2 adorable girls.
When I opened my package, it was all wrapped up pretty.
She sent me Wet n' Wild Megalast~On a Trip. I love the color, but I already had it. So Tara added it to her stash.
