Hair and Nails!

Back in October 2012, I shared this post about wanting to donate my hair. Shortly after that, I shared this post with my "starting picture". Well, I'm happy to say that I still haven't cut my hair more than just a trim since then (and believe me...I'm due for another trim!!!), but I'm getting rather attached to my long hair. I love being able to braid it, or wear it up/down/whatever. As of now, it's about to the bottom of my shoulder blades...see? Now, don't mind the mess in the background, or the fact that my hair is still wet 2 hours after my shower...haha! (Click on the link above for the starting length. It was barely below my shoulders!)

Back at Christmas time, a group of mom friends that I've been talking to since we were pregnant with our 2010 babies decided to do a gift exchange. Well, the mama that drew my name got me started on my "new" obsession. I say "new" because it's something that I've always enjoyed doing, but just never really did it often. See...she got me a new Thermal coffee mug (awesome!), dotting tools and two bottles of nail polish, based on this pin. It really got me back into painting my nails!!! Since then, I've managed to accumulate about 75 new polishes, nail brushes, and nail tape. I've also really branched out in my "artwork". I'm just going to share a few pictures, because otherwise this post would be WAY too long! :-)

This is one of my all time favorite manis!

Inspired by the dress that Julia wore to the daddy daughter dance.

Monsters Inc! (Character nails)

I did these for the girls' birthday party. Coordinated with the cake and the colors we will be using in their bedroom. :-)

There was an NFL Superbowl challenge on BabyCenter, of course I was rooting for Michael's Broncos!

Ok. That's enough! 

God bless!

Thank you! I've been having so much fun doing them. There are so many more that I could post, too! Haha!
