Happy Friday, ya'll!  Here's what fills my heart up today:
  • Baking cupcakes this afternoon for tomorrow's fall festival at my friend's church.  The kids are sooo cute!
  • Celebrating one of my favorite customer's bday's at the bar this weekend ... she's the best and I love when she comes in to play
  • We had our suspicions last night that my brother and sister-in-law were going to announce that they were expecting ... they are NOT, which a-ok with us.  Found out they have a 3-year plan, which is great and Aunty Catlady will be ready when nieces and nephews come!
  • Of course, my kitty babies are amazing and wonderful and adorable.  Here's proof!

Have a great weekend, ya'll!

Blang Nail

Nails ... and Carlton
So, since I haven't blogged about much of anything recently, I have decided to admit to my friends, the readers, that I attempted to follow a trend.  Failed semi-miserably, due to my lack of abilities, but I'll show it anyways.  Hard to see, as I took these pics (to show a friend) last night, but I decided to try out the whole 'only switch up the color on one finger' trend in nail polish. 

Close-up of the
'blang blang' ... and
Are there really nail polish trends?  Sure, cuz I said so.  Anyways, I started off with Essie's "Over the Edge" (ie: dark grey/blue) and decided to spice it up with a little "Carnival" (ie: super amazing silver sparkle) on my ring fingers.  The result?  A little tacky, a little amazing.  Likely not work-appropriate, but let's be honest ... that's what makes me cool.  I've only been in the office for 30 minutes and I've already gotten 3 people to notice.  My new parting line about the topic is "well that's all the blang I'll have on my ring finger for a loooong time, so I think it's justified" (insert the thought "shove it"). 

I went a little nutso at the local Ulta store last night, and bought a few more colors to check out.  I may turn this into a regular thing, so please excuse my horrible cuticles, inability to properly paint with my left hand, and artistic inabilities.  I'm just excited that I finally have nails that I haven't chewed off.
