Mama Style

I snuck off and painted my nails on Sunday evening while Kev and Aspen watched a show. When I came back down stairs, Aspen was FASCINATED. It's been months since I've done my nails, so she isn't used to seeing them randomly change color.
I promised her that we'd do her nails after breakfast today, and I even gave her options. Of course, she picked all three colors that I put on the table for her! No worries, a manicure should reflect the individual. In Aspen's case, she likes rainbows.
We got dumped on with snow last week, and if I didn't break out in hives (y'know, I have that weird allergy to cold... ?!) I wouldn't mind it so much. It makes our scraggly backyard look beautiful, and it was so fluffy Aspen had fun making 100 snowmen/snow towers for three straight days.

Also, I found all my boots (hiding under my bed) and have sorted through my sweaters and jackets for the season. So I feel prepared (and I guess it's also important to mention that Kev found the snow shovel) for the cold weather.

  6. Aw cute manis! I love the color of your jeans and the stripes under your sweater. It was so fun to meet you Saturday! What a great party gentri puts on!

  7. I don't get to give mani's other than to myself. My mom painted one of Jesse's nails for fun-it was a nude color. Andrew was not too happy. So that is a little thing that I am sad I don't get to share with a little one. Anywho, I love your outfit. You have such a cute style.
