Mani Monday

I can't believe that it has been over a month since I've posted OR linked up for Mani Monday! I've still been doing my nails, just not posting them ;) Life has been crazy busy and to be honest I haven't had the time or energy to post anything.
Two weeks ago I ran in my first half marathon, SO it was only fitting that I had fun nails for it, right?! The half marathon was for peace officers who have been killed in the line of duty.
They are a little hard to see, on my right hand is the ID number of the CHP officer that I ran in memory of.

Colors used: Sally Hansen- Pacific Blue, W&W- Black creme, Sally Hansen- Golden-I
I did black polka dot frames and then went over the black with the gold. Then for the numbers I used a Sally Hansen nail art pen.

Mani Monday

Hey!! I have such a fun mani to share this week! :) I got a new pink that I think I can safely say it is my most FAVORITE pink ever! It's bright, but not neon, and looks great with pretty much every color. It is Orly Fancy Fuschia. I tried Nailside's tutorial for clouds for the first time and LOVED it. Can't wait to try it out again with other color combos!

I missed last week!! It was a little crazy we had VBS at our church and with getting home late every night we were all WIPED out! So last Friday came and went :) I have a lot to make up for it though!

Here is a little glimpse of closing night at VBS, it was a western theme this year. SO fun! The kids raised enough money to buy several animals to help feed kids through World Vision . So awesome..our pastor agreed to dress up like a cow if the kids raised enough money, it was hilarious!! LOVE our church!

After a crazy week we went to Lake Tahoe for 2 days and it was wonderful! Tons of swimming, sand digging, relaxing..perfect 

Daddy & Hayden on the kayak. Usually the water is FREEZING, but it wasn't bad at all. Felt great!

The 4 loves of my life :)

A full day at the beach + pizza = CRAZY boys!

At sunset the geese all come up on the beach and feed, they dig in the sand and get something. Pretty fun to watch, you can tell they are so used to people because they could care less we were there! haha

This boy DID NOT want to leave! I didn't either :(

Ugh..the worst part about vacation!

This boy had to go and turn 11 on me yesterday!

YAY! Free ice cream scoop for the birthday boy :) It was over 100 yesterday so it was extra yummy!

Birthday cupcakes, rainbow chip w/ rainbow chip there anything better?!

Happy Friday! Thanks for stopping by ♥

Mani Monday

Today's mani was one that I've done before but with one of my FAV polishes ever Essie Turquoise & Caicos. After seeing Jenni's the other day on instagram I decided to do them again with my favorite blue polish for summer. It is Sally Hansen Pacific blue, it is SO pretty it almost has a purple hue to it.

After I painted them with the pacific blue, I just add a blob of the bright pink: Sinful Colors: 24/7, and then a light creme pink, and swirled them together. I added a little bit of OPI: Teenage Dream for the glitter. And for the "leaves" I used neon green acrylic paint. Such an easy fun, bright mani!

Dresser turned TV console

I honestly don't remember the last time I posted anything DIY or project related, it feels good to do something different! Like a lot of people we have a flat screen TV which is great for space, but if you have it on the wall like we do it can be a little tricky. For a while we had a dresser under the TV to hold the satellite box, video game consoles, & speakers. I knew that I wanted to have a place for everything so after seeing a lot of dresser turned console in blog land my hubbie & I tackled it!

Here are a few before shots: the dresser was given to us and had been sprayed black, which was great but I was really wanting something lighter in our living room.


This was after A LOT of sanding to get the black paint off, which wasn't too hard to remove since it was spray paint. My husband removed the piece between the two top drawers so that everything would fit inside. He then put a piece of MDF for the shelf. I did prime it because I was going with a lighter color. The color I painted was Heirloom white. Initially I really wanted to do it aqua with a dark top, but its not real wood so staining it wasn't an option :( I figured if in a few mths I'm still wanting aqua it'll be easy to paint!
I did do a glaze over the whole thing to take some of the starkness of the paint away, and of course roughed up the edges ;)

We chose 4 different knobs (my fav is the polka dot!) at Hobby Lobby. The black handle ones are from Lowes.

Another view:  eventually we're planning on hanging the speakers up so there is nothing on top!

I don't want to admit how long it has taken me to post this! Let's just say months, like more than 2!

Happy Friday! EVERY week I tell myself that I'm going to do a post midweek and it never happens! But next week I'm really going to! ha! So stop back by if you remember!
As with everyone else on instagram I'm sure, capturing life on your phone is so convenient. Without further ado here is a glance back at our week:

I'm sure everyone knows who Evys Tree is right? Well if not, Amy is an AMAZING hoodie etc. designer who was in jeopardy of having to close her shop. But by God's grace her shop was saved!! WOO HOO! These were by goodies from #saveevystree

A little bit of school shopping out of the way at Kohls!

One night last week while I was on the other side of the house bbq-ing, the boys decided to flood the other side for Lego boats! The only reason I figured it out was because I heard them yelling "GINGER!!!" The dog decided that she was going to LAY in the water! Awesome...

Last Sunday after church Hayden's tummy was feeling yucky so he needed to snuggle :) Everytime I look at this picture it melts me! I see his face as a baby, and he's starting kinder in about 4wks! WAAAHH!

Working on a horse/dog gallery wall for Hayden's room. Going to hang them up today, finally!

Scentsy orders! July is Bring back my bar month :) If you don't know about Scentsy let me know and I'll help you! Does anyone NOT know about it?! ;)

Jordan decided she was cold and she needed an accessory! haha

Got this idea from Nicky ! It was MUCH needed this week..and the initials at the bottom with days of the week? Because my boys fight EVERY night about whose turn it is to take a bath first! Ugh..

Oh I love you Trader Joe's! Since I'm now hooked on dirty chai latte's I decided to try to make them at home. Made one yesterday afternoon and the only thing missing was waiting in the line for it! ;)

Happy happy Friday! Linking up with Jeannett!
