Sooooo, here are the new nails! Yippee! Aren’t they fun!? Doesn’t it just make you want to paint your nails different colors? I know I can’t wait until this falls off just so I can paint them another amazing combo. What shall I try next? Oh, and I forgot to tell you that my toenails are covered in Sparkle-icious! Boo-yaw!

I know I mentioned in passing the other day that this whole nail polish thing is making me want to take more risks! I’m not a very risky person (if you can’t tell) and I don’t know why! So, I decided to make myself a better person and change that about myself. So, last Friday I got really bold and decided to rip up my jeans! And then I decided that I’m going to start trying more fun things with my hurr. I feel like I’ve been in a rut, and I’m trying to claw my way out. And this rolling my bangs back into a bobby pin is new for me. I have a friend, Kelly, who’s hair is different every time I see her. And it always looks ah-mazing! So I’m making it a goal add a little variety. Let me know if you’ve got any ideas! I’ll try ‘em!

(PS:  I’m trying to GROW my hair, so let’s try to work with that, shall we?)

Last Friday I got a great opportunity to go to dinner with my oldest friends. Lindsey, who I met the first day at a new school in 2nd grade, and Katie, who Lindsey had known since birth and I finally met her in 3rd grade. There is something so comforting about these two ladies. We sort of just let it all out, let our hair down, talked about the great and not so great things going on in our lives and encouraged each other. It was so great. We don’t all talk very often, but when we do, we pick up right where we left off and I know that if I ever needed serious help, they’d be there to lend a hand. I think they know I would do the same, no matter the problem or obstacle. I’m feeling so blessed and refreshed from it.

And yes, yes this is a giant statue of a man submerging from the ground.

Remember when I told you my friend Kristi came over and helped me see my closet in a new way? Well, yesterday I felt very inspired by her and decided to figure out how to wear this dress a new way. I honestly thought when I bought it that I wouldn’t be able to do much with it. Oh Lindi, you silly girl!

Maybe for you this dress feels like, “Duh! Of Course you can wear it multiple ways!” But I had a more difficult time seeing all the possibilities. So, if you’ve got some other ideas for this dress, let me know! Ha ha! One of the main reasons I started a blog is so I can learn, and you guys are such smarties!
