ORANGES PORANGES....WHO SAID?

Does the title of this post mean anything to anybody, or am I just really that old?  Even though I hated the show, for some reason this song from HR Puff-n-Stuff that was sung by Witchie-Poo has been stuck in my head forever. OMG, that show really sucked balls. I shudder at the thought of it.

Lordie, and from there my brain went to The Banana Splits.  Somebody shoot me.

I'm pretty excited today. A couple of months ago we decided it was time for me to get a new vehicle.  I've been driving my current vehicle for 11 years. That's a record for me. I've always been pretty spoiled and have never owned a car for more than 3 years. Thank you, leasing. My current car we purchased, and I have to say I have enjoyed not having a car payment, but I am so ready for something new!

I've been in love with my daughter's Subaru Tribeca ever since she got it. Just for kicks last fall when we had gone out of town to my shoulder doctor, we had stopped and looked. It was then that we decided we liked the Outback better; a bit less expensive and better gas mileage. We also decided it would be a good idea to wait. Our brains actually worked for once and logic made an appearance.

We've been kicking the idea around ever since. Driving the Alero in the winter is not pleasant. Kev always lets me take over his Equinox in the winter which leaves him traveling the two hours on wintery roads to get to work. Since he is now going to be moving up to a bigger plane and will make a smidge more money, we decided to bite the bullet. So off he went in July to find me my dream Outback. It was such a dream that they actually had to custom order it. I guess the pearl white ones with all the good stuff are hard to find. We've been waiting ever since and thought it was supposed to get here next week, but it's here a week early. 

When I drive home from work today, that will probs be the very last time I drive my little red Alero. This does actually make me kind of sad. I've loved that car. So much so that it was my second one. I owned the 2000 version of it, exact same color and options as the one I have now. I still look at it when it's outside and think it's cute. If they still made it, I probably would have bought it again.  I'll just have to force myself to drive the brand-spanking-new Outback. Poor me.

I am so far behind on blog posts that this is a mani I seriously do not remember doing.  That probably means I did it in July when I was brain dead. Or maybe in August when I was brain dead. Whatever.
Sinful Colors Cream Soda, Julep Gloria, Loreal Precious Coral, China Glaze Drive, gradient, AliExpress 12-51 stamp
It is very orange. Very. 

I actually  like it. I wonder if I liked it when I did it. Sad that I can't remember. Thankfully I did at least write down what I used so I must have had one working brain cell.  The gradient was done with Sinful Colors Cream Soda, Julep Gloria and Loreal Precious Coral. I stamped on it with the AliExpress 12-51 stamp using China Glaze Drive.

So yup....very orange.

I am wearing a mani now that I did on Sunday night, and I actually  might do my nails again tonight! I think that's going to be the fewest days I've worn a mani since July. 

Maybe I really am going to get back into the swing of things.

  1. OMG I remember that show and yes it sucked. I don't know why I even watched it, maybe because my little brother did or it was the only thing on the 3 channels that we got back then?? Anyway, yeah, you are that old. Bwahahahaha
