Good Morning Lovelies!!!

We got quite a surprise this morning when we woke up!  a few inches of snow!  It wasn't supposed to start until this morning so we had driven my car, a lowered Civic home last night.  Yeah, it used to go great in the snow, until Rob got me my 17" rims and low profile tires!  Now...not so much!  But it looks hot and that's all that matters!  right?  RIGHT???
We live almost at the end of our road.  As soon as you pull out of the driveway, it's uphill for a good 1/8 mile.  The road is all of MAYBE a mile.  It usually takes us not even 2 minutes to get to the next road once we pull out of the driveway.  This morning it took 10 minutes!  Since it's immediately uphill once you pull out, my car couldn't get a "running start"  so we moved SO SLOW!  I coulda walked faster!  Rob looked at me and said, "well, at this rate, we might make it to your Mom's just as the ball is dropping!"

But we made it!

Today I'm gonna show you my New Year's Mani!
When I think of New Years I think Silver!  Glitter!  Shiny! Bright!

So I started with a coat of Wet and Wild "Black Creme" to give it some depth!
Then I simply added 1 thickish coat of China Glaze "Nova".
Topped it with 2 coats of Seche and viola!  SPARKLY!!!
I know I know, not very exciting.  But I was craving GLITTER!  and this helped that craving!  I did a Pedi to match and I gotta tell ya, its AWESOME as a pedi!  Glitter pedis are my absolute FAV!
On to the pics!
Click to make BIG!

I took so many in an attempt to show you the sparkle!

Here's a blurred pic as an extra:

I think Nova is my absolute FAVORITE glitter!
I just can't get enough!

I did a nice smoky Silver and Black eye look today too!  I am hoping it holds out until after work, cause I forgot to take pics this morning and Rob has the camera.  If I manage to get pics I'll post them later this afternoon, probably around dinner time.

I have tomorrow off, YAY!  but I gotta get caught up on our books for the business we own.  So I imagine that's what I'll be doing all day tomorrow!  FUN FUN!

That's ok, I've got an AWESOME Saturday planned!  We are spending the day at Mom's!  And I'll finally be changing my hair color!  I can't believe I've had it the same color for over 2 years!  I used to be a-color-of-the-month kinda girl!  Because I like it like this so well, is the reason I've kept it the same so long!  So now I'm SUPER nervous to change it!
I'll share pics first thing Monday!
I've also got an AWESOME eye look planned for Saturday that was inspired by something I witness last weekend!  I don't wanna give it away so I will leave it at that!

I hope you all have a blast tonight, ringing in the New Year!

May you all be abundantly blessed in 2010!

I can't wait to see your new hair color!

I needed glitter too so I chose Atlantis for my toes... I know it's not very seasonal but hey who cares? I just love the color. And it's the closest my toes will ever get to a lagoon...

Beautiful glittery manicures are the best. I'm wearing Blue Hawaii, a Japanese Color Club glitter. Such a pretty blue glittery. I love Nova also. I have so many glitter polishes. I've had enough of snow already. We had a white Christmas. It's pretty but terrible to clean up. Now it's so windy and cold. Have a very Happy New Year. Can't wait to see what color your hair will be. Love ya. (((hugs)))
