A Break Today

Unnamed Charlotte Russe

I try to post everyday. I think I may have only missed a few days since I started this blog, then on Sunday I didn't post and today I have nothing. Well I have something, I just got lazy and didn't watermark it yet. I typically get everything ready the night before so I can post first thing in the morning when I get up before heading to work. Well I had the worst headache yesterday. Not quite a migraine, but close. It got better towards the evening, but it left me just exhausted. I can't even explain it. I still have a bit of the headache today, it actually feels like it is getting worse again. Anyway last night I walked in the door and the family wanted to go to the beach. UGH! I never thought I would say I didn't want to go to the beach - but I really did not want to go to the beach. I love the beach! I feel at home when I am on the beach, so for me not to want to go - you know it is bad. But I sucked it up and went. I wasn't very productive - I tried to read, but I just couldn't get into it. The waves were horrendous (unless your a surfer) so I was panicked just watching the kids and Juan play in the water. It was too cold for me to even contemplate getting in the water myself. It was in the low 80's and for me to get in the water it has to be at least 90 degrees out. But in the end it was nice to be at the beach and I was glad I went. If only I had a pina colado with me....

When we got back home there were people from Juan's work sitting outside our house. Now normally for anyone coming home and seeing your boss and co-workers sitting outside your house - that would probably be a bad thing. But in the military - that only means one thing (Well as long as your husband is home safe and not off in the middle east somewhere.) It means a promotion! My husband found out he will be making rank. The Air Force is weird. When you receive the announcement that you are being promoted, it doesn't mean you will walk into the office the next day a higher rank. It just means they plan on promoting you and they will assign you a number and when your number comes up, you receive the promotion. So you know months in advance. But none the less, it is still great news to know that in a few (or several) months, he will put on rank, which of course for me just means a bigger paycheck and for him probably longer hours. But still good news! I am so proud of him. Unfortunately because of how I was feeling, I really didn't show it last night. I was tired and out of it and in bed by 9. Poor guy. I will make it up to him this weekend for sure.

Since I didn't get anything ready last night, I am just posting random polishes that I love. I figure it's is ok to repost them right? So anyway - that is today's post - just some random polishes I posted in the past, because I was bad and did not prepare last night and went to bed instead. Hope you enjoy my random spam.

  1. Great pix. New followers will have missed them the first-time round so why not? Loving the white!
    Get well soon and congratulations on the forthcoming promotion.

  2. I literally so feel your pain on the headache end - my migraine finally broke and now I'm down to a rumbling headache!! I feel ya on the posting thing - but hey - it's your blog - take a break when you want to, your audience will understand, you are a mom, wife, and you work out of the home - so we appreciate you whenever we can get you!!
    LOVE LOVE LOVE that JitNB w/ th Dazzle over it!!

  3. i agree with jaljen, it is definitely ok to repost! congrats to juan and i hope you feel better!

  4. Wow, how do you get that white Butter polish so opaque! Love it!

  5. You guys are the best! Faith - it applied opaque like that in two coats if I remember correctly. I was going to use it on my toes last weekend and selected another brand because it dried faster and I was in a hurry. Wish I used this one. Oh well - live & learn.

  6. Sorry you've had a headache...we still love you even though you've reposted. I, for one, like/appreciate the reposts since I'm a noob to your blog. Those colors are great! Hope you feel better soon.

  7. Repost away! I don't remember seeing these on your blog (I read most of your posts but I might have missed a few when I've been away) and I totally know what you mean...when you're not feeling well it's hard to motivate yourself to blog! I'd rather leave it than make a post I'm unhappy with.
