I got two awards!!!!

So first my apologies - I've been bad about posting but my laptop with all my saved up mani's decided to bite the dust. Also it's summer...with a 2, 5, 5, and 6 year-old that makes it tough to feel safe stepping into the office for long writing spurts and the computer is pretty much the hubby's when he gets home from work. That leaves me....ummm....not a lot of time. So I feel incredibly blessed that I got two awards despite this! Well one is a set of awards and the other is just one though from two bloggers so double the love right? Here we go:

Constantly Redone you are simply amazing! You've single-handedly saved my sanity and turned my bad days into amazing ones on so many occasions. You've also made sure I have new polishes despite the tough times which makes sharing on here possible. If you guys haven't go check her out NOW!!!

Nailderella is where I get floored - I don't have many followers but she totally does but she still checks out my posts and comments. I so appreciate the love and the mention. She posts some really interesting polishes (and some that make me nearly die of jealousy and want). Go check her out!

7.  I am a HUGE crafter and sometimes wonder if I'll turn into THAT old lady.

Now for the 15 bloggers award (I'm combining here for the two awards I received which is probably cheating but I hear a toddler stirring - it's normally 10 for the sunshine award and 15 for the other set of awards):


  1. congrats! 5 is my favorite number, too!

  2. It kind of feels like a cop out but it's truly always been my fave. You know like in school when it's pick a number between 1 and 10 - 5 is the perfect one to pick. Thanks for dropping by
