What a Difference...

The first picture is of our house before we moved in last June (2006). The second picture is of our house just a year later (Aug 2007)! We have worked hard to make the yard look good and it has paid off! Our house was an old model so the inside is painted, wallpapered and color coordinating. The only room we painted was the "cat" room. It said meow, hiss and purr, so that had to go! We painted it a light blue color and it has white trim.
A year later is feels like home. We are excited to do more but the staff called $$ isn't coming in as fast as the ideas! :) Plans for the future: cement patio out back, finish the basement and a cabinet system for the garage!

Do it Yourself French Manicure

So last week I had given myself a manicure and used this fancy new pen that I purchased at Sephora (great makeup store at Polaris Fashion Mall, Columbus, OH). It's like a white marker! I love it!


I know that some are you are thinking that I have way too much time on my hands but I don't! I did this in three steps: clear base coat, the white pen and then I used Bubble Bath by OPI on the top. I also used a quick dry polish to have it set qucikly. This pen makes this soooo very easy! It's also a great tool to have so if you don't want to do it yourself you have something to touch up a professional french manicure. Love it!
