Happy 2013!!!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Year's. I was planning on updating my blog during the time frame but hubby had a lot of time off during this time so we took advantage of it and spent a lot of time together. I am sad that he had to go back to work today. Oh well! 

We had a wonderful Holiday filled with family. We also spent a few days ice fishing with my father in law. It was really nice spending time with him and Daniel. 

So did everyone make New Year's Resolutions? I have a huge list and hope to accomplish all that is on my list. Our main goals this year are to - buy a second car, get a job for me finally, and move into a place of our own. I don't mind living with the in laws but I really want my own space again! We are currently trying to save up for a down payment on a house but we might be renting for a few more years - which is ok. 

For 2013 I would also like to blog more. I know I have just started out in the blogging world but I would like to build good habits and update the blog a few times a week. I have a few exciting things coming in the future so stay tuned for that! 

I have officially started my first 2013 No buy as of the 1st. A couple of ladies from the Show Me Your Top Coats are doing it with me and it will go until Feb 15th! I have a very sweet hubby who purchased 15 polishes for me this past weekend before the no buy started. So I am anxiously awaiting those polishes in the mail! I am hoping to use all of my untrieds. So I can finally put them with the rest of my polish stash. 

I have two manicures to show you today. The first one was my New Year's Eve mani. I used China Glaze Dorthy Who? and Orly Halo. It was very very sparkly. I was inspired by the mani over at Lydia's Nails

I don't think it turned out too bad. I am still trying to perfect the gradient nails. I guess practice shall make perfect.

The next manicure I have which is also my current manicure I am wearing is my very first Jelly Sandwich!!! I have been keeping my eye out for Essie Marshmallow but had no luck finding it in stores. Well when we were down fishing with Daniel's dad we had to stop at Walgreens and lo and behind it was the last one there. I did a happy dance and Daniel bought it for me - my last polish before the no buy started! 

I used Essie Marshmallow and Wet n Wild  Party of Five Glitters. I had a lot of fun and see many different jelly sandwich combos in my future! I apologize for my beat up skin. I took this picture after the weekend of ice fishing and the weather really tore my skin up. 

So there you have it!
