Monday Tidbits

--Well, I caved in and tried the gel nail system from ULTA....aaaand let's just say I'll be leaving the gel nails to the professionals. It was a hot mess...they were clumpy, the color was uneven...and it was just not a good experience. Fortunately I was able to take it back for a full refund. I know the feedback I got on it was mixed, but I knew until I tried it myself I would always wonder. I think I would've gotten better at it over time, but it just wasn't for me. Not ready to close the DIY door completely just yet, I picked up this french manicure pen at Target. No, it won't give me gel nails...but maybe I can at least give myself a decent manicure from time to time. We'll see. :)


--My sister forwarded me a devotional the other day, and I thought it was such a great message I wanted to share the link to it. You can go here to read it. It's from a daily devotional through Proverbs 31 Ministries called Encouragement for Today. It is one of my favorite email devotionals...always very relevant messages.

--Manny absolutely loves his TOMS, as in...they're the only shoes he'll wear. To put any other shoes on him results in an all out wrestling match to say the least. Well wouldn't you know that one of his TOMS went missing last week. We searched high and low, but couldn't ever find it. So getting him dressed was always fun because he'd throw a fit when it came time to put on shoes. How does this happen so young?! Needless to say, we finally located the missing shoe....when Patrick emptied the Diaper Champ the other night. Yep, that's where it was hanging out all week, and boy is it rank. I washed it in the washing machine, but that didn't help at all. My sister suggested vinegar, so I figure I'll give that a try...hoping it will work! This kid is a mess.

--Last week we went to the park one evening, and there was a huge dog there. Manny is not around dogs much, so is pretty scared of them. We are trying to get him around dogs more so he's not afraid though. Anyway, when he saw the dog he kept pointing and wanted to go over to see it. At first he was a little unsure...then as you can see in the next picture he started growling at the dog. :) But finally, he decided to pet the dog, and he loved it! In fact, when the owner and the dog left, Manny started crying and ran after was so cute. :)

Happy Monday mom is coming to stay with us for a few days and help get settled...I can't wait!! :)


  1. can't wait to hear how the manicure pen goes! i am always in search for ways to have pretty nails without having to go to get a mani, who has time :D love the toms! do they run small? noah has CHUNKY feet and i wanna get him some but some shoes won't fit over his chunk :D haha

  2. Haha! We got rid of our diaper champ because LOTS of things went missing! Addi loved to make them disappear. :)

  3. Kudos to you for even attempting gel nails at home. My nails are my guilty pleasure. I wear gel nails go faithfully every 2-3 wks. to get them refilled. The dog pics are so cute!!

  4. I love your posts! Good luck cleaning up the shoe!!

  5. So cute. I would love to get my boys Toms. I will have to look into them.

  6. Hate to hear that about the nails! Love your was a topic my husband and I was just talking about last, so I forwarded it to him!

  7. Oh no, so sorry to hear about the fate of Manny's Toms. I hope vinegar does the trick, you will have to let us know.

    I love Proverbs 31, that is where Thirty One Gifts got it's name. Such a great company, they really stand by it.

    Have a great day!
