Fashion Dilemma!

Tomorrow I'm headed to Kansas City for a work meeting! The festivities start off Tuesday night with dinner and bowling, a fun night right? Well, I've got a TON of stuff to do. Numero uno: Outfit for dinner at Chop House and another outfit for bowling!!

Do you girls wear more than one outfit in a night? I'm guessing I'll have to do that.

The Perfect Manicure

Don't look at my dirty ring!
LOOK at those NAILS!!

I'm one of those people who's nails didn't used to look this nice, but now that's a thing of the past because I take care of my nails better! Of course I have a few select products that help me out quite a bit too!

The Perfect Manicure:

1. Remove all old nail polish from nails.
2. Put on cuticle cream. I use very little, just enough to moisturize my cuticles, not the whole finger.
3. File nails in a nice and flattering shape, not too pointy.
4. Buff edge of nails to take off the sharpness from the filing.
5. Wash hands with nail brush and dry with a towel.
5. Moisturize nails with a heavy hand cream.
6. Using rubbing alcohol on a cotton pad, rub lotion off nails well. Any leftover lotion will prevent polish from adhering.
7. Paint on my FAVORITE base/top coat, Hydration Therapy II.
8. Layer the base with two thin coats of your favorite polish.
9. Top again with Hydration Therapy II.
10. Place nails under dryer for at least 3 minutes...and then don't touch anything else still!

Repeat as soon as polish begins to chip.

Belated B-Day Post

I know I'm not the best at getting pics up...I hate uploading photos!

Anyway, May 4th was my birthday so a couple of friends came out with B-man and I to the Cheesecake Factory!

That's Kristen and her hubs...They're great friends and couldn't be nicer :-) They are our go-to couple for the movies!

Blazing Cars and Pantries

So I've really been dragging my feet in posting a few other tid bits about my trip home to Phoenix a couple weeks ago. They are obviously not in chronological order...I'm a Journalism major--I lead with the good stuff!!

On the way to the airport, my mom and I drive past this vehicle bursting with flames! I don't think anyone was hurt since a few people were standing along the freeway 50 yards away... I'm guessing it was their vehicle. While I was home I did a little cleaning and organizing for my mom. Check out her post on my fabulous organizing skills.

I just love an organized pantry. Now if I only had the energy to do it to mine!

Girly Scottsdale Weekend!

A good friend of mine from college is getting married at the end of May in Puerto Vallarta and as much as I NEED some beach time, I'm too much of a chicken to travel to Mexico right now. My perfect solution was to just go to Phoenix for her shower instead. (Yes I know I was just there about a month ago, I love it).

While I don't have the best pics of the shower to post yet, I do have some out on the town with my "bestie" Ondrea. We decided to make it a girls night out in Scottsdale.
We're at Jackrabbit here...

Sara, Laura and On at Cream

On and I at Jackrabbit again

On the flight home last Monday, I watched Bride wars on my iPod. What a sap I am. I got teary eyed just watching a movie about girls and their friends...I miss them so much!
