In my last post, I mentioned how lucky I am to have the entire week off - when I get back to work and the water cooler chatter begins, it's difficult to recall all the things I enjoyed with that much time off so I decided to chronicle it!
Friday - Christmas movies w/the hubs and pups
Saturday - Facial and spa treatment, shopping, celebrate Grandma's b-day with a fat pizza dinner
Sunday - Denver BRONCOS game, we won, there was sun, it was awesome ~
Monday - Grabbed a Downtown lunch, finished shopping, went to the family's for Christmas Eve
Tuesday - Woke up, baked cinnamon rolls , watched the pups annihilate presents, did our little family celebration, went to my Parents ate more :) came home watched Christmas movies, made our own feast and ate more (sensing a theme?)
Wednesday - Slept in, jammie and laundry day-then we went to my SIL's house for our little holiday that didn't happen on Tuesday
Thursday - Lots of random errands, insurance claim, credit card etc. then we watched The Dark Knight Rises since we skipped the theaters after the theater tragedy here in CO
Viva la Nails most recent blogger pack. They are super cute and even on the large side fit on my nails. I then sparkle-fied it with one coat of CND gold holo TC Gold Sparkling. Yes I'm a doof and put the pointer decal on upside down not once, but twice =(.

Merry Christmas! If you celebrate that is, otherwise happy holidays or regular days! I freakin' love Christmas time - just the feel, the food, parties, decorations (on and on). We had a lovely, but busy, couple of days. I'm so fortunate to have a kick ass job and boss. Not only did we get a paid week off for the holiday and bonuses but I got a promotion weeeeee!

As I'm sure all of you are aware, if something isn't in style - wait longer. All things make their way back around. It may not be in our lifetime but it will happen. Last year this time, fair isle and Nordic print were all the rage and they've only gotten more popular. My original fair isle mani got a little love so I thought I would try one again with an array of colors.

Happy almost Friday! I've had a lot of vacation Mondays to use up before the end of the year and now this full week has felt especially long. I'm riding the Christmas parade float and am not seeing any exit signs soon. I thought I would do something gaudy and ended up with a 3D Tree mani.

Oh glitter manicure - how I love thee! This is one of my proud creations of late. I did not own any striping tape, but after seeing Mommy Does Her Nails Crosshatch mani I promptly made an order off eBay. Once my affordable 10-pack arrived I went to work.

Seeing all these colorful and creative sugar spun manis made me want to give it a spin. I started with two coats of Color Club De-Luxe-Cious, an untried for awhile. Very pretty gray glitter with a tint of blue. I had to thin it down since I'd never used it and it has sat so long. Since I'm the proud owner of some of the China Glaze Cirque du Soleil Collection I "spun" with Surreal Appeal, a vibrant neon pink.
