Happy Monday!

I've said it before, and I'm sure I'll say it again - I suck at remembering to take pictures! 

I had an awesome weekend, full of yard work and chores, mixed in with a little bit of fun. Of course I have ZERO pictures to account for this past weekend.

I do have a picture from Thursday evening when I did another wine and painting class - super fun as always! 

Work in progress - notice my beer? No wine for me please!

Final product

Great night with a great friend!

Thursday and Friday were two of the longest days of my work life I've experienced in awhile. I'm super happy to say that is behind me (hopefully). It's so hard when everything is going fine and then BAM you have 89483 gazillion things that need done in 24 hours. But we all survived, and as always are ready for the next round!

Most of my weekend was spent outside. I took Cooper on a walk that was very short lived :[ He just can't keep up like he used to. But I'm excited to announce that on Sunday I found a wagon for him at a garage sale. It needs a coat of paint, so be on the lookout for my next DIY project.

I also did LOTS of yard work, and have LOTS more to go. My parents will be in town this weekend to help me out, so I need to focus on cleaning the INSIDE of my house tonight :]

So after having my hands in the dirt all weekend, my nails and cuticles needed some help. I had to go grocery shopping anyway, so I decided to look and see if there was anything that could help me out. I found this stuff and am IN LOVE!

Seriously - if you have dry cuticles this stuff is the magic cure. I put this on last night when I went to bed, and it absorbed quickly, and I woke up with near perfect cuticles. And I'm telling you, mine were BAD - dry and cracked to the extreme. I was going to take a picture of my nails now, but since there is nothing to compare them too, it just looks like a stupid picture of my hand, so I will spare you. Just trust me - this stuff WORKS!

So, what were you up to this weekend? 


  1. That painting is so cool! I really want to do one of those painting night things. Do you have to have a party or can you just go?

    I will have to try your magic cure because my cuticles are bad. I tend to mess with them when I'm nervous. Gross habit.

    My weekend was pretty good!

  2. awesome painting!! i usually slather on coconut oil onto my hands and call it a night...works every time :)

    Vodka and Soda

  3. Good job on kicking outside's butt!

    I'm so glad you found a wagon.

  4. I have been wanting to do a wine/painting class forever and can't get any friends on board. Lame! I'm getting that Cuticle Rehab ASAP! Thanks for sharing!
