Mod About You

 I absolutely love this color for the summer!  It's OPI's Mod About You.  Two years ago, I went in for a routine pedi and the girl recommended this color.  She told me that it was very popular, but I had never seen it.  I am the girl that finds a color that I love and sticks to it!  So I was probably still stuck on some neon orange color and needed something new. I immediately was a fan and bought a bottle on my way out of the salon.  Like all things that you fall in love with, when I went in for my next pedi she told me that the color was being discontinued so I bought 2 bottles.  Needless to say somebody must have made some noise because here it is 2 years later it's still here.  

It is my summer staple, as a matter of fact I was in the nail salon when I realized I was in labor!  I had gone in to get a polish change the afternoon before I was scheduled to be induced.  While I was sitting there I realized that I wasn't feeling too hot and my mom and I started timing my contractions.  Thankfully,  I got my toes right before delivery because I don't remember much from delivery (other than the pain) but I specifically remember the baby's nurse ask my mom about my polish.  I was delirious from drugs and exhausted from pushing, but I heard her say my toes were cute! ;)

I apologize for the cloudy picture...I was trying to take it with E and the Ipad in one hand and the nail polish in the other.

For Real!

I don't know how long it has been since I last posted but this time I am FOR REAL about posting consistently!  My motivation is to document this little nuggets growth, and unfortunately I've already missed this first year.  So from here...I am so serious about keeping up.  Before I really didn't know what to blog about.  I knew I wasn't a fashion blogger, I mean I like to look cute but shopping is just not what I love.  I wasn't a mom before, but I really enjoyed reading about other people's children.  I wanted to motivate people and share my love for Jesus, but it was a little too intense without something else to balance it out.  Now my life is a lot of different stuff all at once and I'm trying to balance it all and not lose myself.  I want to be authentic to who I feel I am everyday when I share my heart and my thoughts here!  So fashionista, interior designer, momma, chef, Jesus lover, etc are all apart of who I am and on any given day one may shine brighter than the other.    I guess that is what motherhood is... a balancing act.  All of the things that I used to have under control are so far down on my priority list because my day starts with a cry as an alarm clock and a bed time story signals the end of the day.  But I am still giving everyday 110%!  I am still serious about keeping my house clean, my marriage happy, enjoying my family and friends, and the newest thing on my plate raising a heck of a little lady!

The thing is, I am so passionate about living my life well but it doesn't always translate well into my day to day.  So I am going to keep it REAL here, so prepare it won't always be glittery but hopefully it will be encouraging! ;)
