I've been quite the busy little bee the last couple of days. I went to Walmart after work yesterday, and I am proud to report that I did not spend $100. Go me!! I actually only spent a smidgen over $30, and I didn't buy a single polish or polish-related item. Shocked? I am.

What I did buy was a frozen Marie Callendar's Dutch apple pie. If you've never had one of these, you are missing out, people. I grew up eating my mom's homemade Dutch apple pie, although I didn't know it had any name other than just "apple pie". I thought all apple pies had no top crust, just a yummers crumbly topping. I did try to make one myself many, many years ago, but I didn't put enough apples in the pan so it was kind of a flop. 

A couple of years ago I saw the frozen Marie's and figured I'd give it a try. OMG. I will never need to attempt a homemade one again. This pie is sooo good! When I got home I immediately baked that sucker up, and it is a delight. I actually just finished eating a piece.

I've also been dying for something pumpkin so I grabbed some of their sliced pumpkin cake. Also yummers, but it is a smidge dry. I should have grabbed some cream cheese frosting for it. Still good, tho!

Today after work I decided to clean the house in preparation of Tyler coming home tomorrow. She and the Griffster will be here for a whole week, and I am really looking forward to it. I feel like I haven't seen them in so long.  Cleaning was slow going with my arm, and it's nice that Kev has been doing the vacuuming for me. My house is now clean, and my arm now throbs.

Last night I also didn't start doing my nails until way after 11; not sure what I was thinking. I decided I would just do some kind of French mani because I haven't done one in awhile, and they're easy.

Oh, lordie almighty.  This is awful!! And since I started too late it was also too late to remove it and start over. I'm just glad nobody saw it today. I'll be taking it off tonight and hopefully doing a soakoff and reapplication of my nails.
Revlon Timeless, OPI french
Gawd, just looking at the picture irritates me. The light grey is Revlon Timeless, and I have no clue what the OPI is. It's one of those stupid-ass mini bottles that I hate and are even more annoying because there's no name of the color on it.  Suffice it to say it's almost black without actually being black.

I decided to throw on Essie Matte About You topcoat just to try and save this sucker. Fail. There is just no saving this horror.

I think I'll go eat a couple pieces of pumpkin cake and take a nappy-nap.  I'll just consider it dessert to the piece of pie I ate 1/2 hour ago.

Dinner of champions!


  1. oh well...... it's just polish and I know you'll be taking it off... poof it will be gone. We get the good the bad and the ugly.... real life for real life. I've sure done my share of those too.
    Another mani will be the cure, just like that apple pie........ sounds yummy.

    1. Oh, the pie is beyond yummy!! Yeah, I could have just not posted this, but gotta' be honest and show the crap mani's along with the good ones. lol
