Manic Monday...


After such a relaxing weekend I found it hard to get back into the swing of things this morning. Even with the long weekend around the corner I struggled to maintain some focus to get through the workday. We just found out our friends are going to have another little bubba (congrats Kristin & Tom!) so I made mental lists of craft projects I'd like to make, during meetings I'd day dream about our upcoming trip to Bali (more on that later) and despite having a million cups of coffee, I just couldn't shake my case of the Monday's.  I decided to take a little stroll after work to clear my head and since J is working late I did what any girl would do to lift her spirits - I broke out the red nail polish. Yes, I painted the town (well, actually just my toes) raven red and immediately felt better. I might have to be stuck in manic meetings during the day, but in my mind, my red toes and I are sitting on the beach somewhere sipping pina coladas...

Congrats to your friends on their new bubba , just yesterday I held a 5 day old baby and it nearly made me want one more (but that would mean 4 kids and I am not sure I am up for the challenge!)

And red nails ... FUN!!!

Pina Colades .... Heaven!!

Bali? Wow! That's amazing. I've always wanted to go there!

It's so great to take the time to sit and carefully do your toes, clean up the smudges, let them dry, etc. etc. It really feels like "me" time when I do have the time!

Mondays are terrible, I get to the end of the day and I'm so tired. I keep falling asleep on the couch in front of tv. Rob tells me how delightful it is to listen to my light snoring!
