Three Days – Day One

Since I’m laying around the house in (one of) my favorite hoodies

It's an oldie but a goodie (hoodie). Hah!

I thought I’d do an update on the last few days. I’m splitting them up because, in my minimum brain space, I can’t take in too much in one post. Of course, I love to comment on every little thing and then feel like I’m babbling…kind of like right now.

So…

I made the trek out to Dad’s, figuring I’d get a good two days worth of cleaning done.

The first day – travel day – is always earmarked for banking, dropping papers at the lawyers, soaking in the areas that I miss. A quick trip to the mall and I hit the Apple store to get an Olloclip for my phone – OMG, if you like taking pictures with your iPhone4, you NEED one of these*!! I also found out that there’s a Starbucks in the mall – SWOON! – and the scent of coffee had me floating in. Lately, when I’m out there by myself, I drink tea and don’t bother getting my daily mocha. I’m so glad I went because I haven’t had a mocha that good in a loooong time. Once again, I pondered how a drink with specific measurements can come out so different, so many times.

I grabbed some dinner at Boston Market (yeah, I always take stuff back to the hotel), which is directly across the street from the bowling alley where Mom & Dad played in 3 leagues.

After lugging everything into the hotel, I settled in and played a bit with the Konad Stamping Nail Art kit, which I bought about two months ago. For someone that hardly every polishes her nails, I LOVE nail polish and had a blast with this.

I did a really crappy polish job, before I left home, figuring it would get ruined with the cleaning.

The funny thing is that my nails are so tiny that some of the stamps are too big and I was able to stamp two nails, with one design. I played around and used four of the designs. People say you need to practice with it but I didn’t have any trouble – the small nails could be why. My only problem was I forgot to bring polish remover, so I couldn’t clean the design plates to re-use them. This is pretty addicting!

To Be Continued…

*Just some extra Olloclip pix. I adore these.

  1. I never paint my nails because I chip it within a nanosecond. They are beautiful and little nails are a bonus!! That was a lucky Starbucks find!!!
    Great photos.

  2. Lurve the nail art! And the macro too. Once again, my phone looks at me shamefully.
