The birth of my new little "nephew." God did not see fit to bless my parents with a sister for me, but He did see fit to bless me with a group of friends that are more like sisters than friends... Their children are becoming my surrogate nieces and nephews and this is little Wyatt Howard who was born after 24 hours of labor at 6:56am on Wednesday morning! He is 9 pounds and 2 ounces and 21.5 inches long. He is perfect in every single way, and I am so proud of his mommy, Marissa! 

Myself and Wyatt on his first day of life.. proud auntie here!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I have so much to be thankful for not only today, but everyday of the year, and sometimes I lose sight of those things. I am immeasurably blessed.

stash, anyone?

"Don't do anything halfway, unless you're willing to be half happy."

This is honestly probably just a post for me to document things, but I've decided to go ahead and post up stash photos. Shortly before I began my addiction to nail polish, I would literally go WEEKS with extremely chipped nails or nakey nails. So, I maybe had 10 or 20 bottles of polish that I'd had for years, in your basic colors.  Then I entered the lovely, lovely world of nail polish... and discovered so many new horizons. And my stash has grown.... considerably. Its not as big as some bloggers that I follow,... but its big to me!

Thankful Thursday.

"there is an inner beauty about a woman who believes in herself, who knows she is capable of anything she puts her mind to. there is a beauty in the strength and determination of a woman who follows her own path, who isn't thrown off by obstacles along the way. there is a beauty about a woman whose confidence comes from experiences; who knows she can fall, pick herself up, and go on."

Today I have for you a mini haul I did the other week when I needed to do some emotional shopping. Of course where is my favorite place to emotionally shop for nail polish? Sally's of course!

Thankful Thursday.

This week I am especially thankful for:
1. Second chances.
2. Potentially going to see Paranormal Activity 3 with the other half of my heart tonight.
3. Summer. Marissa. Spen'sar. Who prove to be my backbone right now more than I could've ever dreamed.
4. Finding light at the end of the tunnel when you think there is no positive outcome. 
5. the Julep Maven program. 
6. Renewing friendships that you thought were long lost. and learning to see eye to eye, despite the many differences between us.

Ladies, What are you thankful for?

My apologies for disappearing from the blogging world.... it has honestly been a horrible, horrible week. I've been on a roller-coaster of emotions, and there still seems to be no end in sight, but I'm trying to see the positives. Hopefully I will get back in the swing of nail polish soon... but honestly, it hasn't been on my top list of priorities... I will catch up with you all soon. xx
