i am wearing: essie’s “carry on” and revlon’s “copper penny” for the nail design.

i’ve been slacking on the mani’s lately. life has gotten busy. the month of december is always full of hustle and bustle and things to do. and then to add more to my plate, i became the organizer of a “moms of 2010 babies” meetup group. i was really starting to get stressed about it but today was our first official meetup and it was a great turnout! now if only i could find time to make my christmas cards. and start my christmas shopping. all i seem to be able to do is make more wishlists for myself. LOL…happy friday friends. xoxo

    This is my busiest month by far because my family has 6 December birthdays (including my hubby’s & my daughter…who’s turning 8 – AAAAAH!) Every week seems to get busier and busier and I can feel my stress level rising. All I want to do is read blogs, shop & tweet all day! 🙂

    I’m so jealous of your nails. Mine are so blah!! But I do use Carry On sometimes when I paint them, so yay! ‘we can be hand twins!’ LOL. PS, I’m also busy – yet can’t pull myself away from Pinterest long enough to get a thing done. Oh well.

    love this mani! I totally agree with hustle and bustle December! Glad you had such a great turnout…what a relief when taking on something new you aren’t sure about!

    Love the winter manicure! Can you share tips on how you keep your cuticles so moisturized and clean. Mine are a disaster!

    How are you so good at doing your nails?? You and all those ladies all over pinterest doing manicures better than the pros!
    Good luck with the play group! I just joined one with my son and it’s been a blast. He doesn’t go to daycare and isn’t in preschool yet, so he loves any chance he gets to play with kids 🙂

    As always, your manicure is simply fantastic! What do you use to do the nail design? Also, I’m glad the first meeting of your group went so well! =)
