New Year's Eve. 2013-2014

Happy New year everyone.
I saw this on a Wiccan website. I think we are going to do this.

I found this on Pinterest & printed it out. I am going to fill in the answers & put it in a scrapbook or a Smashbook. I'll cover over the date on the bottom with some glitter #s.

Late Christmas party

We went to Anthony's friend's house for a late Christmas party today. His friend's wife always decorates things so nice. Things you would find on Pinterest.

6 months

6 months from today will be my 44th birthday. Eeek. I can't believe it. I always love my b-day, but not so much this time. It is hard, getting older & my daughter is growing up. She'll be 7 in July. I will still have a fun birthday, but maybe won't be as excited. I know it's how you feel inside, but once you hit 40 the aches & pains come on. No one tells you that.

Nail Files. Week # 104

I went through some Christmas nail looks on Pinterest. I found this tree & thought it was cool. I didn't get a really decent photo of it though. I added a few different 1s on my instagram page, but I have no flash on there, so those pics are even worse. I also started a snowman on the other hand, but our friends arrived at our house on X-mas eve & I didn't get to finish it. I just painted over it with the green polish that I used for my tree. I got some free nails strips from Thierry Mugler in the mail. So I used them on my fingers. They are light blue with stars (like the perfume) & the middle fingers are silvery/white with glitter & blue stars. The index finger is Pure Ice~Platinum (my fave white nail polish). The green polish is Fresh Paint~Dragon Lady. I also used a few clear stones & a blue scrapbooking star. I did a top coat over it & it stayed on pretty good.

Below are the nail strips. I didn't use them all & I'm thinking the 1s that I didn't use are going to be all dried up.

Already ready for Spring


I'm ready for Spring & nice weather. I know it won't be here for a while, but I'm dreaming of it. I'm working on my yearly planner, decorating it & writing in all my appointments (at least 2 doctors appointments a week). Starting to sell some stuff on Craigslist & changing out my decorations soon. Brighter colors, greens & blue accents. Selling some stuff on Craigslist, mostly clothes. It's school vacation week, so we're trying to find things to do. We had snow all day, so we stayed in all day. It was a really long day. But we are going shopping tomorrow. Hoping to get some Christmas stuff marked down.

Christmas eve

You can tell which pics were taken with the ipod touch & which 1s were taken with the real camera.

Matching scarfs. She had it 1st & I liked it, so I went & got 1. We both just happened to wear it today.

Keep calm. Christmas is almost over

Christmas has been extra stressful this year. We've had 3 root canals this year (hubs had 1 & I had 2), I got new tires & had eye surgery. So $ is tight this year. I love giving, but end up buying too much & feeling guilty because we really don't have the $. So I really think next year I will make more of the gifts. Now we have Pinterest, so I might try making some ornaments, cookies in cute tins, lip scrubs etc... Time flies, so I will have to start early. I also like the idea of gift baskets, maybe buy a package of nail polishes or lip glosses & put them in a stocking or basket. Split them up. I saw that on 1 of my fave You tuber's pages. I want Christmas to be fun, not stressful.

1st snowstorm of the Season

We had a snowstorm overnight, but we didn't get all that much. Not sure how much, but probably 4 or 5 inches. Tara got to play outside in it for a little while, she was too cold, so she came inside with her friend.
