11 years & counting

11 years ago Anthony & I went on our 1st date. We met on & had been e mailing & talking on the phone for over 2 months. It was Summer, so we were just both really busy & it took a while for us to finally meet in person. We met at a Mexican restaurant & it isn't even there anymore. To many more years.

Got Some New Books

I love cozy mystery books. I got a few @ Barnes n' Noble recently. I got "Postcards from the Dead" by Laura Childs, "It Takes a Witch" by Heather Blake & "Hexes & Hemlines" by Juliet Blackwell. I just started reading "It Takes a Witch" last night. I felt like it took me forever to read my last book, just too much going on. So I want to try to read the next 1 quicker.

Nail Files. Week # 138

Lately I've been getting some Funky Fingers polishes @ Five Below (I love that store). I used this 1 this week. It kind of chipped a bit. I noticed a few pieces of dried polish on my ipod. So I'm not sure what I think about these. The glitter polishes that I got are textured & I'm not a huge fan of textured polishes. So I'll try the other 1s that I bought & see if I like them any better. This is Lazer Pink.

Want to see what I got with my Gift card that I won?

So I had planned on buying a few things with my gc that I received & then getting food, having the whole family go & pick out things. Well we are hardly ever all together at the same time. So I went today alone. Of course I had wanted nail polish/make up. So I went to that area 1st. There is only $8 left on the card. Oops. I even put a few things back. So I told Anthony that he can buy whatever he wants with the $ or let Tara buy what she wants.

I would be buying Mums anyway. So this saved us some $.

She's growing up

Today we met Tara's teacher & saw her classroom. We missed some of the kids because they got there before us or after us. She is in a portable room again this year. She knows at least 7 kids in her class. Which I think is great. We live in a small town, so she usually knows at least 4 or 5 kids each year. There will also be a few new kids too. I'm hoping she'll make some new friends. I still can't believe that she is going into the 2nd grade.

Hi. So how has everyone's Summer been? I think it has just flown by. It does every year, but this year seems faster than before. It already feels like Fall here. It was 55 this morning when we got up. If it's below 78 degrees, I am unhappy, so I guess I am going to be unhappy for the next 8 or so months. haha. We are getting ready for back to school next week. I can't believe that T is a 2nd grader. I remember worrying about her starting Kindergarten & elementary school. So we will be back on a schedule next week. I think I am ready for all of this.

Mommy & Me Monday

We went out to eat tonight. We sat on a comfy couch. We always think of sitting there, but this is the 1st time that we did. Good food & good times.

Nail Files. Week # 136

I'm all about purple this week. I have on China Glaze~Sweet hook & Funky Fingers~Anna. I think I might be done with glitters. This has some chunky blue starts & only 1 showed up on my pinky nail. It keeps getting caught on things. Ugh. I love the way glitter looks, but hate when it gets caught on things. I got 11 nail polishes in the past week.

This is how they look on.

5 Things making me Happy this week

1. New nail polish. I bought 10 new 1s this week. I am going to try to not buy anymore polish until September.
2. Tara slept over my parent's house Thursday night. So I got caught up on a lot of my dvr'd shows. Got some other stuff done too.
3. My Dad had a Barnes & Noble gc that he didn't want, so he gave it to me. I got 3 books. yay.

4. 18 days until school starts. I'm so excited that I think I might get the hiccups.
5. 1 more week & Anthony will be on vacay for a week. My car will be getting fixed & we'll be going to Boston & Hampton beach. Not sure what else, but it will be fun.

Tasty Tuesday~Jello Cool Whip Pie

Tara did a Tasty treats camp last week at school & she brought home this recipe. She had the pie in school, so we didn't get to try it. But it sounds great for the Summer. They did watermelon jello & added real watermelon into it.
