Oh, Hi Friday.

1. I wish the picture would do this manicure justice!!  I’m absolutely in love with it.  The glitter polish was a $.99 W&W polish: W&W wild shine: sparked!  I was so pleased with how opaque it was!  The pinky/purple is (shocker, I know) another megalast polish: Through The Grapevine.  It’s like I’m becoming a spokes woman for W&W.  I was at Target last week with my mom & sister and we were browsing through the OPI and Essie polishes, and I had a startling realization.  It’s been MONTHS AND MONTHS since I’ve bought any fancy polishes.  I’m so pleased with the W&W and sinful colors polishes that I can hardly justify the $9 bottles anymore. don’tgetmewrongistilllovefancypolish


2.  I ran into one of my husband’s players as I was walking into the doctor on Wednesday.  Yoga pants.  No make up.  Rash all over my face (don’t ask).  It was in that moment that I cursed living on campus despite how much I love it.  

3. I might have to give up salsa.  I mean.  What?  You also better believe I straight up ASKED THE DOCTOR if I had to give up quesadillas.  I might have flung myself out the second story window if he’d said yes.

4. I’m completely impressed with technology.  One of my blogging BFFs (I feel like I don’t even want to use the “blogging” specification) is halfway around the world right now.  Exactly twelve hours ahead of me.  And we’ve still found ways to communicate.  Especially this week with all that’s been going on, I’m so thankful for wifi and technology!

5. Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher.  I don’t even know what to say about this book except that I feel like everyone should read it.  Especially every high school student.  This book is about a girl who commits suicide.  Beforehand, however, she records her story–her reasons why–all thirteen of them.  Those thirteen reasons are random acts by thirteen people who most likely had no idea that what they did could affect someone so greatly.  So she sends them the tapes.  This book is chilling and moving and wonderfully written.  It’s eye opening.  And I highly recommend it.  Four stars.

    Seriously, trolling the aisles for some wet and wild polish this weekend. You have me convinced.

    And I LOLed at #3. What is your quesadilla secret? I mean I love them but yours are probably amazing if life without them makes you want to jump out of the window!

    I have heard about that book! I may have to download it soon. I am such a lazy reader though, which I hate. I loved reading as a kid and as an adult, I barely do it! But all these blogger book recs have me reconsidering…

    I have that same W&W Sparked polish! I have been having the haaardest time finding Wet & Wild polishes here in Canada. I haven't been able to buy a single Megalast!

    Shut your whole face; that polish was a DOLLAR?! But…but it's so pigmented and the other is SO SPARKLY! *brain explodes* Haha! I can see why you're a convert! They're so pretty!

    That book sounds intense, but a worthwhile read. And I'm sorry about your Salsa Situation. Booooo. 😉

    I wish I cared about my nails.

    I read that book in 2010 (i.e. deployment #1). It definitely struck a chord! Every high schooler should read it!

    I will be having a quesadilla for dinner for the 3rd night this week. Sorry about your salsa problem though! Hope what they found either resolves itself or isn't serious!

    The book got me at 13 and of course, it does sound interesting. It's something that I would read.

    I've heard so many great things about Thirteen Reasons Why. I do really want to read this, but think even more, want to read Jay Asher's The Future of Us. That one is about high schoolers in the 90s, who magically find their future facebook profiles. Talk about an awesome premise, right?
