New kid on the blog

Hi all......

This is my first blog post! I'm super excited about all that I've been doing lately. I just created my own Facebook page as well (same name as blog) so feel free to check it out if you'd like. I have to say a huge "Thank you" to Mavoreen's Lacquer Obsession, without all her help, none of this would have happened! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!

I have always loved painting my nails, ever since I was little! My mom probably didn't always appreciate the spilled polish but, now that she asks me to do her nails, maybe she feels it was worth it! LOL I am always trying to come up with new designs and techniques, whether it's just stuff that comes out of my head or things that I have looked up on other people's blogs or Youtube.

I don't claim to be great at it but, I must do a pretty good job...I have had many people tell me my nails look professionally done and I have had several ask me to do their nails for them. I would love to go back to school for my nail tech certification so I could do this full time but, right now that's just not going to happen. For now I will settle on doing my own nails as well as my daughter's, my mom's and my sister in laws! Not only do I have fun doing it but what better way to spend time with some awesome people! I find doing my own nails to be very relaxing....when you have kids any "mommy time" you can find is a God send!

Here's a little bit of a background on me:

I am 34 years old, was born and raised in the same small town I STILL live in, I'm married to an awesome guy (who actually helps me pick polish colors and designs :) ), He is an Army veteran (served 13 years) and we have been married for 5 years (6 in June).

Kids- I have four children (3 boys, 1 girl). My oldest is 18 and my youngest is 11....get this, My oldest graduates this year, my next one graduates next year, the third graduates 3 years later and my youngest graduates three years after that! Whew that made me tired just saying it!!

And for those of you doing the math on their ages (lol) the youngest is my biological child, the oldest are my husbands biological children....My husband adopted my son and I adopted his three. As far as I'm concerned.... I HAVE FOUR KIDS!!!! There has never been a division of "my kids/your kids", from the start they were "our kids"!!!

WOW, I think I covered everything except what I had for breakfast this morning lol

I'll leave it at that for now and I will post more later!!

  3. Thank you! I had some bad experiences in my past but I have been blessed with a wonderful husband who adores me and treats me like a queen.....and I have 4 really awesome kids that I love to death!! I'll be putting up around 4 new blog posts this weekend to get caught up. PLUS I just got some cool polishes I want to play with and post pictures :) Thanks again for stopping by!
