Nail Files. Week # 126

I'm wearing China Glaze~Pool party. I thought I already had this color, but realized that I didn't (even though I have a few that are close). So I just got it last week.

Early Anniversary lunch

Our anniversary is tomorrow, but Anthony has a few meetings, so we went out today instead. We finally had a Sunny day, so we sat out on a patio at Tuscan market. I got gluten free gnocci. It was okay. It was nice spending time with the hubs. We never go to lunch during the day when he's at work.

Random stuff

Well I was going to do Wordless Wednesday today, but I can get my photos to open on here, so I can't add any. I guess this will be Wordful Wednesday. Lately I've had so much trouble with my computer & ipod. I really depend on both of them so much. It's hard when new apps won't upload on the ipod because I don't have enough space or when my computer kicks me out of aol, when I'm in the middle of something because we need a new router. It's hard to get anything done. I didn't do a blog post last night & really don't want to skip 1 tonight because of a moody computer. Anyway, Friday is our anniversary, but Anthony has a few meetings on Friday, so we are going out tomorrow instead. We never go out for lunch during his work-time. My birthday is a month from today. yay. I'm not happy about the getting older part, but I love birthdays.

Still dreaming of Summer here

So we had a cookout today, but it was cool & cloudy & towards the very end it started raining. So I thought I would post some Happy Summer pics to cheer us all up.

Nail Files. Week # 125

I've changed my nails a few times this week, but this is what I have on for the weekend. Ulta~Cocktail waitress (red), China Glaze~Splish Splash (blue) & Salon Perfect Silver Sparkler topcoat. I painted my nails the red color for Blood clot awareness day. I'm in a Nail polish group on FB & 1 of the girls had a blood clot & survived. So she asked if we would all wear red nails for the awareness day. I posted it on Instagram, but didn't really do a blog post or anything. I got this blue China glaze yesterday & I'm not sure if it's a matte, it doesn't say matte, but it's not shiny. I really like the color, but I'm not sure why they don't mention that it isn't shiny. It seems like a lot of the China glaze polishes are like that.

Busy days

There's been so much going on lately. Appointments, a fish that might be sick, a cat that went to the vet yesterday for her yearly check-up & had a spot shaved on her back so they could snip a bit of her wart. Poor girl. I have tons of notebooks, to-do list pads, day planners etc... Like 4 calendars hanging up & I still can't keep up with things. Today we were at dance class & I reserved the dance recital tickets on Sunday since we had a bunch of things going on that day. I went up to the desk to get the tickets & the lady told me they don't take credit cards, only cash or check. I guess if I had read the papers about the tickets I would have known that. I sometimes skim through things & miss some details. I only have 1 kid & feel overwelmed with all of her stuff going on.

Summer Vacation~Bar Harbor, Maine

We are going to Bar Harbor again this Summer. We haven't been there in a few years. We went here for our 1st vacation with Tara when she was a baby. It's about 5 hrs away. I'm really looking forward to our trip.

Photos from google.

Mommy & Me Monday. (Flashback)

This pic was taken in May of 2008. She looks so different now. I almost can't remember those days.

Tara's fave Disney Princess is Jasmine. Her friend had the costume for 3 years or so & she finally passed it on to her. She's so excited. It's her fave costume ever. I think she looks great in this color too. She's been wearing it around the house the past few days. We also got her 2 dance outfits tonight for her recital. They are awesome.

Skin problems

Lately my skin hasn't been so happy. I'm planning on getting some new cleansers & creams hope they help. I had bad acne for 20 years & now I have rosacea. The roascea doesn't usually act up much, only if I'm really hot (if it's humid or we have the wood stove on) or sometimes if I take a really hot shower or take a nap. But lately it's been getting red once a day & I feel like my face is burning or like I got slapped in the face. So I'm going to try some different products & see if they help. I need to start wearing stronger sunblock too. I should always wear sunblock, but in the Winter end up just using the spf 15 or whatever is already in my powders/creams. I'm also planning on going to the dermatologist soon.

Nail Files. Week # 123

Earlier this week I had on my new Essie~Serial Shopper. I don't really like it much. I'm not a fan of orange, but thought it was more of a coral. I might try to return it, if not just use it as an accent. Maybe when I do polka dots or something.
