1. Taking a tip from my favorite manicurist, I use tin foil-wrapped, polish remover-soaked cotton balls on my fingertips to remove my shellac manicure. Let it sit for 15 minutes or so while you catch up on episodes of Private Practice.  It's way better than heading to the nail salon for the removal.  Also smarter than scraping off the shellac and sending my nails into nuclear shock.

2. This is how far I've gotten on decorating for Christmas.  Yes, those are the halloween baggies my mom made for my life group gals. And yes, I finally remembered to give them to my girls last night - a few days into December.  I guess I have no choice but to follow my own advice.

3. Check out these beautiful blooms. I didn't even edit this image.  Dang, gina. Those are some beauties. And the guy who showed up at my door with them isn't so bad, either. :)

4. I fully realize that everyone in the nation is talking about the weather.  But people, I LIVE IN WISCONSIN. It's cold here like 8 months out of the twelve.  Sixty-four degrees in December is OUT OF THIS WORLD.  Geesh.  


  1. I'm obsessed with Shellac! What a lovely space you have. All the best - Monica

    1. Hi Monica! I agree. Shellac is so wonderful. Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy New Year :)
