Jamberry Giveaway

Hey friends! I have a fun post for you today along with a giveaway...YAY!

My friend, Deanna, gave me a cute little gift basket of Jamberry nail wraps in the adult and junior sizes.

How cute is that?!

As you can imagine, my girls were pretty excited to try it out. I was too, since I had purchased the nail wraps for our nieces, but had never really tried them myself.

If you're unfamiliar with Jamberry Nail Wraps, they are essentially sticker decals that you apply to your fingernails and/or toenails and seal with heat.

They come in sheets like this...

I applied "Iced" to my toes and the girls used "Snow & Ice" and "Mod Love" their fingers.

First we selected the best size, then cut it to size.

We heated it and placed it on the clean nail.

Pressed to secure and heat to seal. Deanna had this awesome little heater, which made it easy to heat, but you can also use a hair dryer.

Then we filed the edges. This application kit makes the process easy, but it's important to take your time.

They come in array of styles and are super durable! Ours lasted two weeks and could've gone longer, but I was ready for a change.

They are also really reasonably priced. Only $15 per set, which is enough for two applications.

They even have these cute Mommy & Me sets! How cute would these be for a Mother's Day gift?

I love these gold ones!

Spring Break 2015

Last week, we went down to Southern California for my Grandmother's funeral. This was a bitter-sweet trip...sad to say our final good-byes, but great to see family.

We also had a day to go to Disneyland and the kids had a blast!

Of course, she had to navigate.


Chicken Curry Salad

I'm making one of my favorite salads over at 30 Days today...Chicken Curry Salad.

This makes a great lunch and the curry is not overbearing. You can find the recipe here.


Saying Goodbye

Last week, we lost my Grandma CeCe somewhat unexpectedly.

Losing loved ones is hard. Even though we know it's a part of life and even though she lived a long and full life, it's never something you can really prepare your heart for.


St. Patrick's Day Food

Can you believe March is here already? February really did fly by. I feel like I blinked and it just passed by. Since St. Patty's Day is coming up, I thought I'd share some festive recipe ideas!

I know not everyone loves Corned Beef & Cabbage, but if you do, this recipe looks like a winner! Afterall, it IS the traditional Irish meal.
