Pretty Polish and Good News!

Long time, no see my lovelies!!!

I'm sorry I've been so absent!

With all this year-end book-keeping stuff going on with both the business I work for and the business Rob and I own, I've been alittle busy, to say the vary least!  Tack on a major billing system change over at the business I work for and I am now mildly insane!

Because of my crumbling Acrylic, and no time for a repair, I've been, sadly, polish free!
That is why I haven't had much to show you!  This will change I  promise!!!

Also...A few of you, and "L" in particular, have asked what exactly powerlifting is.  I will show you and explain how it is different than Olympic weightlifting and Body building, on either Thursday or Friday this week!  I don't want you to think I'm ignoring you girl!!!


Ok, now that all that's done, back to our regularly scheduled post!
First, the Good News...
I'm not sure if any of you watch Speed Channel or have heard of a show called Pinks All-Out, but regardless of if you have or not, I'd like to announce that we will be competing on a filming of the show, on June 4th and 5th, with BOTH the 1963 Ford Galaxie that I built the motor for, and our 1964 Ford Fairlane!  How exciting is that!?!?!  I'll be sure to let you all know when the show airs, just in case you get the chance to spot me on TV!!!

Ok, now the polish!  Remember that Pretty Shiny Things Mani I did a while back?  Well I wore that all week!  I love that mani!  After I took it off, I figured it might be a nice change of pace to do a simply clean 1 color mani!  So I pulled out a color I hadn't tried yet!  A color I have thanks to my awesome husband Rob.  See, Rob has this ability to look at polishes and grab a color and say "you should get this!" and have it be a color at 1-I would have looked over and not noticed, and 2-winds up looking amazing with my skin tone!  It's a gift I guess!
Mom has a similar ability with clothes for me!  I can walk into a store and find NOTHING, she can immediately walk into the same store and find a cart full of stuff that all looks great on me!  It's a gift!

ANYWAY...Rob picked this polish out this past summer when we were out of town.  And WOW is it nice!

Sorry again for the lack of posts, hopefully I'll have something to show you gus tomorrow!

Have a great day!!!

Me and the BF have watched Pinks All Out before! Awesome, I can't wait to see you guys on the show, please do remind us when the date gets closer.

Love this color on you, it really does look nice.

I was just about to send out an email to you to see if you were still alive :)

We watch that show here all the time. Congrats on that.

Thanks for the other thing. I am trying to get back into being active and I hate regular workouts.

Color is beautiful!

What a pretty color! It's definitely nice to have another set of eyes for cosmetics/clothes, since sometimes a different opinion than your own makes a world of difference!
