RECORD HIGHS last week. RECORD HIGHS. Not complaining too much. Spent a lot of time at work (BOO!), at the pool, and at splash pads. I love that we can be outside until 9pm and still be in the water without feeling cold. I got nice and golden last week and plan to be even bronzer this week.

So how has everyone been? How are y'all handling the heat?
The dudes have been enjoying their summer vacay and Big Daddy started training for the upcoming rugby season. He's currently playing in a touch league to keep up with his cardio too. And speaking of Big Daddy, operation surprise birthday party had to get changed up. Why you ask? Because...HE FOUND OUT! Yes folks he did. Long story short, I was texting back forth with a friend of ours about plans for the party and he saw the texts. BOOO-HISSS! Don;t worry. we changed up the plans so hopefully he'll still be surprised.
I have been looking for something to 'do on the side' and am happy that I finally found something. I have friends that do Mary Kay who have been hounding me to sign up. I just don't feel like I should have to 'work' that hard for a side gig. So I searched around...for fun stuff of course and finally made my decision. A couple months back I actually won some Jamberry nail shields from Stephanie over at Babes Rockin Mami. FABULOUS! What a great concept. They are nail shields, so they don't chip. I recently tried the Sally Hansen nail polish strips. I was impressed by those but they still chipped like nail polish. I put in a request online on the Jamberry nails website and someone contacted me the very next day. After emailing back and forth, I decided that I would get in on this ground floor opportunity. :)

Yes that would be me! I am a Jamberry nails consultant and I'm actually very excited about it. I joined on Friday and placed my order for my consultant kit. I am sooooo excited. Wait, did I say that already? LOL.
I am planning on throwing an online launch party with a mystery hostess once I receive my kit in the mail. So get ready! If you want to check everything out you can look at my site by clicking the image above or clicking here. I would love to offer anyone out there a chance to maybe even review some. So if you are interested in that, let me know. I would also love to do a 'party swap' with another consultant too. Like Scentsy or something.
The flamingo contest was a flop. I can't believe no grown ups wanted to participate ;). Well I am changing the contest up. I want to see your planks, your owls, and/or your flamingos. Kids are the best and will do anything. So kids your kids to do it. The prize will be a $20 gift card to Target and a set of nail shields of your choice from Jamberry nails. The contest will run until the end of the month, August 31st 8pm CST. You can do a blog post and come back here and leave me your link or you can upload directly to my facebook page. The winner will be chosen on September 1st.
Wow that was long huh? Sorry bout that. See what happens when I don't blog for awhile LOL? Well you can blame BamBam for the sickness he brought into our house 2 weeks ago.


  1. hmmm. ok. i will admit. I am interested in the nail shields. I spent 30 minutes last night doing my nails only for them to chip today. I was not a happy camper!

    Lots of pretty styles too. I may have to make an investment and try them out!

  2. You're too cute! Loved this post! Sounds like you have been super busy! I'm going to check out your link!!!! Sounds like a great venture! Those "nails" are really popular!

  3. Sounds cool! I use to do home interiors and found myself getting high off my own supply. Lol I don't polish my fingers because I'm always in water but I do polish my toes. Gotta think about this flamingoing. LOL

  4. I can get my kids to do ANYTHING! ;)
