Hello Everyone!

Sorry - I disappeared again, didn't I?  Weekends tend to be full of family, so there isn't much time to post... I did watch the playoffs last night- I was totally rooting for the Vikings!  Sigh, oh well...  Good for the Saints though.  I am playing a Superbowl mani that I will show you around gametime, Mr. Ski helped me pick the colors!

Here are my weekend NOTDs...

This was Saturday night, it chipped by Sunday afternoon...

base coat, 3 coats China Glaze Rodeo Fanatic, 1 coat SV.  I absolutely LOVE this color.  The pics don't do it justice- it is a blue color that shows a bit of green in the sun.

It also matched my fugly couch:

I let the Princess pick my mani today.

This is bc, 3 coats Zoya Katy, and SV.  I don't normally wear pinks too often, but The Princess insisted!!

That's all I have to babble about for now, I promise I will try to stop in tomorrow!

Until later,

Sorry for disappearing!

Sorry, I have been busy the past few days...  I did get a few nail polish packages in the mail- I will post those tomorrow.  For now, here is my NOTD.

Got my hair did....

I finally went and got my haircut today- way short!  It is a cute little shaggy cut...  I also colored it redder (I am a natural redhead, but over the years it has started to fade and the grays are popping out!)  I tried to take a picture of it, but the lighting sucked...  maybe tomorrow in the sun.  The camera and I are not friends, LOL!

Trying to figure out what I am going to do tonight.  Mr. Ski is out of town, so it is just me and the kiddies...  The Princess has gone to bed, and Ski Jr. is playing on his Xbox 360, so it is kind of quiet!  Maybe I will catch up on my reading- I have been reading the same book for weeks!  I will also be sleeping on the couch, I can't sleep when Mr. Ski is away... : (  I think it has to do with the noises the house makes and I don't feel as secure....  hmmm....

Oh well...  off to read!

Until later,

I Heard a Rumor....

Crap, now I have Bananarama stuck in my head! (haha- now you are singing it too!)  Anyway, I heard a rumor that Vanessa Marcil may be returning to GH as Brenda.  I know this rumor comes out every few months or so, but this time, I think they are actually working it out.  How cool would that be?  I didn't watch much GH when she was on, but I had such a girl-crush on her when she was on Las Vegas!  I hope it works out- if AMC can bring back Jesse, Greenlee, and Dixie (and those characters DIED!) then GH should be able to bring Brenda home from Europe, right?  

I guess we shall see what happens!

Until later,

NOTD- Blk-Bila-Bong

Here is the promised NOTD pics.  3 coats, no topcoat, pre cleanup.

This one is with flash

This color is very pretty!  In regular light it looks navy blue or black, but when the sun hits it it has a beautiful sparkle!  It isn't one I would have chosen for myself, but I am glad I tried it!

Until later,

I am feeling kind of blech today, and I am not sure why....  I think it is because I didn't sleep all that well last night, and had to get up a bit earlier than usual to babysit.  I babysit a friend's one year old son Monday through Thursday while he goes to school, but this morning he dropped him off earlier than usual.  Oh well... maybe I will try to go to bed earlier tonight.  I guess that all depends on the Princess, though!

On another note, The Princess has been using the potty for almost a week with no accidents!  I may finally be diaper free!!!

I am going to change my mani later tonight as well, and I will post pictures of it- I promise!

Until later,

Yay! I won!!!

I found out yesterday that I won the giveaway from Short n Chic!!  That means Opulent Cloud will be mine....  I will post pics as soon as it gets here- so excited!  I NEVER win anything!

New Nail polish!!

I got a package in the mail this morning...  It was full of nail polish from a MUA NBer!  Here are some pics...

ChG Lubu Heels, Blk-Bila-Bong, Tree Hugger, OPI Bogota Blackberry

OPI LPAD Matte, Zoya Katie, LA Girl Live on Stage, Essie Pama, and Maybelline Acoustic Azure

I aske Mr. Ski to pick one for me to try, and this is what he chose.  (Warning, this is before cleanup, so it looks kind of messy.)

Lubu Heels!!  Very pretty in real life!

I can't wait to try the rest of these out!!  Now that I have my camera cord back, I will be posting more NOTD pics, so beware!

Until tomorrow,

I'm here!

Sorry I have been MIA lately.... had a busy weekend! Went to see "Leap Year" for a friend's birthday- very cute! The scenery was incredible.

I have also been potty training the Princess. We had a few accidents Thursday evening, but since then, none! Not even over night! Yay! Maybe we are free from diapers... (Keep your fingers crossed!)

Last for now, CHUCK!!! Yay, Chuck is back!!! I love that show, and have been waiting not so patiently for it's return. Last night we had 2 full hours of it, and another new one tonight!! I am in geek heaven!!

Anyhoo, enough babbling for now, I will leave you guys alone for the moment. I may be back after GH today- I believe Mr. James Franco is exiting.....

Until then,

A little soap opera talk

does anyone else get slightly freaked out by James Franco's character on General Hospital? I watch him, and he creeps me out! The writers did a very good job with this one, in my opinion. I will be sad to see him go!

I did enjoy the flashbacks on All My Children the other day. I am a relatively new viewer, so it was nice to see some history. A little sad that Zack and Kendall left, though...

One Life to Live is probably my least favorite right now. Todd and Tea are irritating, Blair is whiny, and Gigi and Rex are pissing me off. I usually pay half attention to it and wait patiently for GH. GH has always been my favorite. I remember watching it when I was young, back in the Luke and Laura days. (Does that make me sound old, that I remember Luke and Laura's wedding? Ugh!)

Oh well, it is very late, and I need to wake Ski Jr. up early for school. More to come soon!


Tuesday, January 5, 2010


So, remember a few posts back I said that 2010 was going to be better? Well, I lied. So far, it sucks major butt. Once again, I will not bore you with details, but so far I am not having a good year. Oh well. I can only hope that it gets better, one way or the other.

Sorry for the downer, I just needed to vent.

Hello 2010!

I hope that this turns out to be a better year for me. Things have been rough, and I won't bore you with details, but I am totally trying to be positive! New year, new attitude!

On a different note, I recently joined MUA and swapped some nail polish. I had a wonderful experience so I have been visiting the nail board. All the ladies there are very nice and have wonderful tips. I am jealous of all their polishes! A wonderful member sent me a message telling me that she was cleaning out her stash and would send me a welcome package- how sweet is that?! I am going to be hanging around the NB for quite awhile- I need some sweet, friendly women in my life. I can only converse with a toddler but so much!

Thank you MUA NB!!
