Yes, I'm a slacker. I'm fully aware that I've been terrible about posting. I'm not sure if it's after-holidays exhaustion or the "I hate winter slump".

We spent the New Year holiday in lower Michigan with Kev's family. Our first night we went to dinner and then went bowling. SO fun. Long after everyone else had gone home, Kev and I stayed and bowled some more. We each bowled eight games. Somehow I managed to bowl extremely well after my first crappy game of 116. I even had one game over 200, so I was pretty pleased with myself.

I also managed to drink way too much raspberry vodka. Luckily it didn't affect me the next day, but it did make me not drink New Year's Eve. We also didn't bother going down to the ball drop because even though the temperature was quite a bit higher than last year, it was really damp out which made it feel colder. We played some games with the fam and pretty much had a laid back night. Once midnight hit, we headed back to our hotel and watched a movie. We are just way too exciting sometimes.

On Wednesday while I was at work I decided I was over Christmas so I asked Kev to start taking down the decorations. We finished that up in the evening, and I finished cleaning yesterday, so my house is officially spotless and back to normal. As usual, I immediately regretted taking everything down. The house is just blah feeling now. That's my least fave part of the holiday season. It always takes me at least a week or two to not miss the decorations and the tree.

Back before we even had snow I was doing snowflake nails. I just love using the snowflake stamping plates, and I've been forcing myself to not do snowflakes every time I do my nails. This was the first one I did for the year.
OPI My Vampire is Buff, Mundo de Unas Black, MoYou Festive 04 stamp, Sally Hansen Big Matte topcoat
I started with my fave off-white, OPI My Vampire is Buff, and I used the MoYou Festive 04 stamping plate with Mundo de Unas Black. I topcoated it with Seche Vite but then decided to make it matte instead. I used Sally Hansen Big Matte Topcoat for that.

One of these days I'm going to just have to do a post with a bunch of mani pics of the nails I've done that didn't make me very happy. They've been accumulating for awhile now, but I don't like them enough to feel like featuring them in any way. Poor things.

Well, apparently we are now going out to dinner with my sister and her husband. Kev went over there to help with something and that has somehow turned into a dinner date. Late on we are headed out to the casino to meet up with Seven's owners for some drinks and some football on the big screen. 

No football for me! Football for them means the slot machines are calling my name, and I'm more than happy to answer that call.


  1. I am the same way with Snowflake stamping. I to have to force myself not to do them hehe. Killer job as always!

    1. Well, you do the BEST snowflakes so you should do them all the time!
