Nail Files. week # 171

This week I tried my 1st Jamberry nail wrap. I have on Revlon~Divine & the wrap is Cup of Tea. I didn't love it. Well it was pretty, but 1 side was a little warped. Which was my fault. I kept touching it with my other fingers. It was really annoying. I had 1 on the other hand too & took it off the same night. They kept getting caught on things too. Not a fan of any of the nail strips or wraps.

Tuesday blues

It was a rainy day here. Stayed in & got caught up in a few things. I've been thinking about how fast time has been going lately. I have another review to do & some swaps that need to be mailed on Thursday, so I'm busy working on that. The main thing is getting my scrapbooking room together. Since the shelf fell, the room is just messy & crowded. I'd like to paint the wall a different color. Haven't mentioned that to the hubs yet. But we should have the shelf back up in the next few weeks. I will feel better once it is up. I hate messes & clutter. So then I can start working on scrapbooking & smashbooking once again. They both make me relax & feel good about being creative.

Mommy & Me Monday

When Tara came home from school today we did some silly selfies. We haven't done any in a while, so it was fun.

Mike's Hard Pink Lemonade & Circle K. #mymikesmoment #mc #sponsored

“I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Mike’s hard lemonade. I received a Circle K gift card to facilitate this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.”
Summer is over & now it's back to school & homework, dance, brownies & other fun activities. As a busy Mom, I like things to be quick & convenient. Long days & nights so sometimes I like to unwind at night, either with the hubs or alone. Read a book, light some candles & have a drink sometimes. Mike's Hard Lemonade makes it easy to grab a quick drink. No mixing & measuring.
I love the owls on the Limited edition box & the top of the bottles. I'm totally in love with owls. Limited edition Mike's pink hard Lemonade is available until October. Since 2009, Mike's hard pink Lemonade has released it's seasonal pink lemonade flavor. In support of Breast cancer awareness & Mike's has contributed more than 1 million dollars to breast cancer awareness. So when you enjoy a Mike's pink lemonade you are supporting a great cause by helping to raise awareness. Every year I buy a few pink items to support the cause. I have a few t-shirts, bracelets & a few cute bags. They now even have nailpolish.

 The caps are really cool too. My daughter decided that she is going to collect bottle caps. This is her 1st cap to start her collection.

With the gift card besides the Mike's hard lemonade, I got a scarf, we got Tara a Big eye racoon named Rocco & put some gas in my husband's truck. You can see all the different types of things that you can buy at Circle K. I didn't know they had scarves & Big eyes. I always thought they just had candy, soda & chips. They also had some winter hats & gloves & cool bags with different teams on them. They had The Red Sox, Celtics & Patriots. Circle K makes it easy to grab whatever you need & get on with your busy life.

So go to your local Circle K & see what fun items you can find & pick up some Mike's Pink Hard Lemonade to support a good cause.

How do you meet new friends?

Now that our kids are getting older & in school all day, it seems like my Mom friends are all going our seperate ways. Some are getting jobs & some are home with younger siblings. But we don't see each other much. So it's time to make some new friends, but how do you make new friends when everyone is always on their iphones? T has 2 dance classes. The 1st 1 I know a few people, the 2nd class I don't. So it would be nice to meet some new people, but everyone is on their phones, playing games, reading e mails, texting. I don't have wifi on my ipod, so I bring a book & some magazines & get caught up in that stuff. I think it's harder to make friends the older you get, but the whole iphone thing doesn't help. I'm hoping to meet a few FB friends & a pen pal soon. None of them live that far. I met 2 people from FB last month. I always love meeting people in person, so much fun. Also ran into an old friend yesterday, who lives in the next town, so we are getting together with another friend from elementary school & we all have girls around the same age.

I'm getting ready to go to bed. I love night time & dreaming. Also cozy spaces with lots of pillows, blankets & candles. I'm thinking of starting a dream book with all of my awesome dreams. Dreams that I have at night & dreams that I have to do & want to accomplish someday.

Happy Mail

I've been doing a lot of swapping on some FB groups lately. I got these 2 swaps this past week.

This is a castle in Ireland that a girl in DE sent me. I love it.

I got this from a girl in MA. Love covered bridges.

Mommy & Me Monday

This is a flashback to Sept 2011. She's so tiny. I miss those days.
