Holiday Cheer





I picked these beauties up from Ulta Yesterday. It was my first outing in 4 days of not leaving the house! I am not usually one that paints my nails, as I have stated before, teaching art, my nails usually get destroyed. I usually only get french pedis on my toes too, but I took those off and painted the sparkly red color on my toes for X mas. I really love nail polish that has glitter in it! So pretty!

Cali has gotten NON stop rain for days now. Thus, this has been rolling into AZ, making it day 2 of overcast skies and today it sprinkled off and on. BLAH.  So I am just cuddled up to a typical Arizonan's version of a winter fire tee hee :)


It's to hot to burn actual firewood so candles in the fireplace work just as swell! :)


On Another Note..



An in case you missed this article on Yahoo yesterday, Here is little Ralphie today!





 His real name of course is Peter Billingsley. And if your like me, I only noticed him a few years back in the movie "the Break Up" starring his really good friend Vince Vaugh.  I had no idea he was actually still famous upon watching the Break Up and finding out he produced Couple's Retreat!

Here he is in the movie "the Break Up"


And just in case you didn't know...
the house where this movie was filmed is in CLEVELAND OHIO! (where mister wonderful is from!)
The house still exists and was fully restored to look like exactly as it did in the movie!

  1. I love those nail polish colors! Very festive!

    Ralphie was actually in Elf too - he had a very small part at the beginning when Buddy is way behind on his toy making. Not sure if it's a good thing that I know that? Haha

  5. Teaching art is hard on the nails. I don't paint mine either, that's usually the first thing I do while on summer break or any holiday break.

  13. We are still getting hit SO HARD with the rain out here in California. Tonight is supposed to be the worst of it all. I'm sick in bed, so the rain is actually nice, but I wouldn't want to be on the roads. Sorry to be sending it all your way... I know how you AZ people work if it's colder than 70 degrees out ;)
