|How I have been feeling because I haven't blogged.
|How I want to feel. Animated penguins have not a care in the world.
As of today this is what the dining room looks like:
|A bar for sophistication!
|A better light fixture, chairs, table,
|I can't even describe the deep love I have for the zeb rug.
|Is it ironic to say "bad lighting" in the lighting picture?
Phew I'm glad we won't need to look at those horrid "before" pics.
In other news, I did something very UNlike me the other day. I got a design painted on my nails. I KNOW I KNOW, you think I've gone off the deep end since we last spoke. While your not WRONG, per say, I need to quickly defend myself.
Has anyone taken a GANDER at the incredible photos of nails people pin on Pintrest?
SEE!? I mean honestly. WHO are these talented people? AND WHY do they not work at my local nail salon?
Listen, all I can tell you is Christmas was in the air. The eggnog was flowing, the Bath & Body Works scented candles were burning, and the Elf soundtrack was on full blast when I decided to go over to ole' King and Queen nail salon and lay these bad boys on them. Even though I couldn't understand the nail lady to save my life (where was Asia when you need her?), I KNEW she was not OK with this venture. Her raised eyebrows suggested both tackiness for me, and annoyance for her at the work involved. We settled on doing just TWO nails this way. ("So now you're just 1/5 hick instead of 100 percent hick", says my husband. My thought process exactly).
My mom says I can pull them off. (My mommy said so!) So far the only person to genuinely compliment them was in first grade...so there's that. That should be your litmus test for life. If the only person to give you props is 6 years old, you need to reevaluate. At least strangers can know a little something about me even if we never speak. They know I MOST CERTAINLY am in the Christmas spirit? I am probably pretty jolly? I make bad nail decisions?
Anyway this has been a therapeutic post, I'd say. I hope to continue posting!! I have missed it a ton! And when we really get our butts in gear we will switch to the new STATE OF THE ART blog.
To continue in the holiday spirit, I will close with this...
