Well, last night was my 35th class reunion. I had heard from one of my best friends that I haven't seen in probs 20 years, saying she was in town. So I asked her to be my "date" and then got ahold of my ex hubby to see if he wanted to join us even though he graduated a year before us. So off the three of us went to the bar to have dinner before the party started.

First of all, I rarely drink anymore and really didn't know if my stomach was going to behave itself, but I have had a really good few days now without pain. Boy, has that been nice!! I still get nervous everytime I eat, but so far so good. Before I left for dinner last night I popped an omeprazole and a Zantac, kind of a preemptive strike, and I had my trusty Vicodin with me just in case. I even got brave and ordered a drink with dinner, and since it went fine, I had "a few" more drinks throughout the night.

It was fun seeing people I haven't seen in awhile. I can't tell you how many times people said "hi" and then immediately grabbed my hand to see what was on my nails. For a few people, my new name is apparently "The Nail Lady".  I'm a bit concerned about that; am I the crazy nail know, like a crazy cat lady? I certainly hope not. lol

So I had fun. I did want to go home around 1:00, but the ex was driving, and his response to that was, "too bad".  That's not as douchey as it sounds. He can talk like no other, and he was just having too much fun visiting with our old friends. It wasn't really a big deal, but it's been a damn long time since I closed down a bar and gotten kicked out. But that's exactly what we did.  Then we came back to my house, and since Tyler was still up, he came in to visit for a bit since she left today. (translation - didn't go to bed until 4)

I didn't drink too much, probs had a bit of a happy glow going, but this morning I remembered what it feels like to wake up after staying out too late and smoking way too many cigarettes. Ugh.  The drinking has never bothered me the day after, but that excessive smoke surely does, and I felt like shit. I am not 35 anymore. *sad sigh*.  A good 3 hours in the pool cured it, though.

Of course I had done my nails for the reunion. I suppose I should have done them in black and orange since those are my school colors, but I thought that would just be too cheesy for words.  These were a hit, though.
Julep Clara and Susie, China Glaze Peachy Keen, Salon Perfect Robin's Egg, Sinful Colors Snow Me White water marble
I was very happy with how this turned out. I love these colors, and as it turned out, I did wear a light peach-toned shirt so I ended up kinda' smatchy.

I did a basecoat of Sinful Colors Snow Me White and then marbled wth that along with Julep Clara and Susie, China Glaze Peachy Keen and Salon Perfect Robin's Egg. They're all purdy colors on their own and turned out well together.

Now Tyler and Griffin are gone (boo), and it was nice to have the day to myself and feel back to normal again. This girl is tiiiirrreeed. Hopefully I'll have brains enough to go to bed early.

Doubtful. Highly, highly doubtful.


  1. Pretty mani, for The Nail Lady.. insert crazy if ya want to! hahaha :) Glad you had a good time!!!

    1. lol...I think I'll stick with "Queen". ;)

  2. I like that you incorporated some of the colors without being matchy matchy with your school colors :)

  3. I think you made a wonderful choice for your nails. It is nice that it went so well. I went to our first reunion and haven't been to one since. Next year will be 35 for me since graduating.

    1. I've been to most of my reunions and they were all pretty fun.

  4. You nails are beautiful! I come from a small Texas town and my class is really close. We just had our 25th reunion this past September and we had a blast! So much so, we can't wait for the next. Most of our class have stayed in touch throughout the years and when we get together, it's like no time passed. Glad you had a great time!
