This post is all over the place...

miscellany monday at lowercase letters
I actually put into action something (other than a recipe) I found on Pinterest! My nails hardly ever grow past my fingers so I don't have natural tips to go by when doing my own French manicure. I have a pretty steady hand, though, so I've gotten good at this style. But when I saw this idea on Pinterest, I had to raid my office supplies to see if I had any of these little sticky dots. Lucky for my little phalanges, I did!

After: The lines are straighter than I would have accomplished on my own...and it took a lot less concentration. I was able to watch Sister Wives while doing it ;-) 
I used...
I was out of clear polish and since I like the bright white look on the tips, I only used the Revlon color on the inner parts to give them that 'finished' look. When I attempted to lightly brush over the tips with it, they turned pinky and that wasn't cool with me.
Now I'll have pretty nails for about 1.5 days until they chip. It never fails.
I've recently found Arielle at

Some Instagram Recents...
Finally a good picture of our baby, Bert. This cat is SO not photogenic. I takes juuust the right amount of light to bring out his facial features. Otherwise he just looks like a blob. A cute, furry, little blob :)

An amazing way to start a day at school. Chocolate Chip Banana Bread and a Decaf Iced Vanilla Latte. Love.

Milwaukee Brewer's game field trip with the middle school. Luckily we were in the shade and the only "babysitting" I had to do was take attendance about 10 times and tell the boys to stop throwing popcorn and peanuts at the girls. I'd call that a good day.
