This is my random life lately...
You may (or may not) have noticed that I made a few changes to the blog! I changed the header, the layout and simplified the side bar. I also added more social media icons. Hey, I did pretty good considering my last update was in January. At the end of that post I asked myself how long the layout would last. Ha!
For the last couple of months I have been on a "one glitter nail" kick. I give myself a manicure and pedicure every Sunday evening (one of the things I look forward to the most in my week), and after seeing an image of one glitter nail on the internet one day, I fell in love with it. It took about a year for me to try it though. Here are some of the combinations.
I haven't been cooking as much lately. This is mainly because Simon has been grilling just about every week for the last five months. Every now and then I sneak a meal in. I love making homemade meatballs for my spaghetti. I made this last week.
I designed a baby shower invitation. The sex of the baby has not been revealed to anyone, the parent's are keeping it a secret. That meant that the invitations had to be unisex. Throw in a little non-traditional and this is what you get.

You remember that Spring Forward Project List? It's almost the end of summer and I haven't completed much of it. It will probably be extended into Autumn. Actually yes...it will be. No probably's about it (I just made up a word). I do have a fun reveal from the list coming up this week though, so stay tuned! In the meantime, I finally have narrowed down paint colors for my bedroom/bathroom. Now I have to decide what walls get what color. Here are the samples on my bathroom wall.
Simon has a Kindle but he hasn't been using it lately. I ended up "borrowing" it. Ever since reading the 50 Shades trilogy, I have been on a reading spree. I've read 7 books in the last month and a half.
My Dad's side of the family has a family reunion each year in July. This year my Dad, sister and I hosted in Georgia. The last time I saw most of my relatives was last year at my Grandfather's funeral. This was the first time seeing them in a while for a happy occasion. Before the funeral I hadn't seen them in four years since I generally don't go to the reunions that are out of town.
We celebrated my Mom's birthday over the weekend. The actual day is today though, so Happy Birthday, Mom! That's a red velvet cake martini that she's drinking :)
