Obnoxiously Long Randomness!

Good morning my lovely readers!

I hope the day has been good to you so far!

For today, I don't have any manicures to show you.
:::::Ducks objects being thrown at me::::

But to make up for it, I have a picture smorgasbord!

So runaway now if you don't wanna be overwhelmed with pics!

First I wanna show you just how awesome Elaine of LaquerLaine is...
See Elaine contacted me and offered to pick up Sinful's "Show me the Way" for me!  Luckily, I was able to get her something in return!  But...Before she made the store run for me, she asked if there were any others she could pick up for me.  I gave her 3 more I was looking for, 2 that I knew were long gone, but worth a shot, just in case.  Here is what arrived Monday morning:

::::DROOLS::::

How awesome is she?!?!?!

Here's the First 5:



Opal Glitter, You Just Wait, Purple Diamond, Frenzy, and Dream On

and the next 5:



Courtney Orange, All About You, Show me the Way(YAY), Hottie, and Midnight Blue!

Elaine, you totally ROCK!!!
Thank you so very much!

Also, Guess what else I received Monday:



FINALLY!  only 1 month and 4 days after they were supposed to be released! LOL
not that I'm counting!

But look at this:



Seriously? This is how they wrap things for shipping?  I pulled this straight out and snapped this pic.
There wasn't even bubble wrap between the bottles! Only by the grace of God did they not break in transit!
I was also shocked that the bag (not box) they were mailed in wasn't marked "Fragile"
After a quick swatch on my hubby's nails (thanks babe!) I am not quite sure they were worth the wait.  But I'll hold off judgment until I can do a full mani and proper swatches.  What I saw on Rob's nails weren't the colors I saw on other Blogs that got the pre-release.


MOVING ON!!!

Someone (sorry can't remember) asked a while ago if I would share pics of my tattoos!  Your wish is my command my dear!  I'll go in the order that I got them:

Very first tattoo, got this a week or so after I turned 18.  It's on my stomach(I know, weird), about 3 inches to the (your)left and 2 inches up from my belly button.  I don't like my tummy, so that's why you get a closeup!  LOL


This is on my left shoulder blade.  I got this after I left my ex-husband.  He hated my tattoo, and I was basically told I wasn't allowed to get any more.  So this was a Celebration of me finally being able to be me!  The name is my Grandmother's family name, she was full blooded Italian, and the butterfly is red and green for the colors of the Italian flag.  






I got this tattoo on the back of my neck on Good Friday, probably 5 or 6 years ago.  I thought it was fitting to go through a bit of pain to get a permanent sign of my faith, the day my Savior died for me.




This is my lower back tattoo. It looks kinda smooshed now since it was tattood on me 50 pounds ago!  LOL

and my FAV:



 
 
This piece is my favorite.   I struggled for a long time about whether to get this or not, and I got a very clear sign and I was meant to have this.  It represents The Holy Spirit bringing Holy Fire, washing over me and cleansing me.  Rob drew all the Flames for me, and I drew the Holy Spirit on the back.  It needs another touch up round, I just hate not being able to lift for a week while it heals!

NEXT!
A few of you commented that you would like to see what the dress was that I wore to the wedding I went to a few weeks ago...here ya go:



I was fluffing all the bows along the aisles and could feel that I was being watched...I turned around to find my husband and our buddy Dave taking pics of me, and that was the moment of "what are you doing!" :)

Next I thought I'd share a few pics of yours truly.  Even though you always seem to see my hair curly, it is actually very straight!
 

  This is me with the motor I built for the 1963 Ford Galaxie.

And these are a few pics from a "photoshoot" of sorts we did for our website!...




 
 
this is the car I built the motor for!




This is the 1964 Ford Fairlane we race!

and last but not least, I'd like to brag about my man a bit!  LOL
I convinced him to let me take some pics of him, both during the above shoot and last night in the gym.  He's pretty self conscious, like me, so the fact he let me take the first pic, and is letting me post it is beyond awesome,  I LOVE U BABE!
***WARNING...if you don't like muscle, walk away now!!***



:::Drool:::
Man I love this pic.  Can you believe he NEVER takes his shirt off!




That's my baby!  and his massively nice arms!



The chain is about 40 pounds, we use them for all sorts of various training exercises. 

OK!  are your eyes glazed over yet?
LOL

That's all I have for you today my Lovelies!
Thanks for visiting!
I hope you have a FANTASTIC DAY!

Shayla said...

I *love* potpourri posts! Your tattoos are awesome - it always pains me to see the ones that people don't think about, and yours are *nothing* like that.

If you wanna check out my tatts, I had a post about them a while ago...just go peek :)

Lucy said...

That was me asking to see those tattoos! Just beautiful art work. Made even more so because of the meaning behind each one. The Holy Spirit and Flames is really beautiful. You should be so proud of them all. You looked adorable at the wedding. Just gorgeous and I love that pinup pose. What a sweet husband. I would make him lose that shirt everyday! Looks amazing and you two make a beautiful couple. Thanks so much for sharing yourselves.
