I have an Etsy Shop!

Hey yall!

This is just a quick post to let you guys know that I just opened my very own Etsy Shop! I'm so excited! (he, he, he!) I haven't listed any items for sale yet, but I will post a blog about it when I do. I will start out selling my handmade candles & bath products, so keep a look out for them.  If you other "etsy people" have any ideas on how I can be successful with this venture, let me me or visit my shop at, and send me your shop name so I can check you out! 
Yall...I can't stop smiling...I'm so excited!!

OPI Big Apple Red

This is my absolute favorite red polish ever! I have looked at several swatches of this color all over the internet, and I must say, it looks much better in real life. It especially looks good on me! I don't know if it is because I nubbinized my nails (again) tonight or I just haven't worn a straight up red in a long time. Whatever the reason, I love love love it!
I'm gonna be really sad when this bottle goes empty...

and oh my GOSH...Rebecca is turning 21 next month...but she's gifting all of her loyal followers with a brand new beautiful bottle of the much sought after GOSH Holographic nail polish. Enter to win here. I'm entering! Come join me!

Thanks for reading!!

Go Lobos!!

It's finally daughter's Senior year in high school. I can't believe it came around so fast!
I had to bring something (a dessert) to the annual block party held for her volleyball team, so I figured I would go all out and be a little creative since this was my last and final time to do this.
So I decided to try the sugar cookie thing again. And I must tell you, decorating cookies is almost as fun as painting my nails! I love it! So, here's her school's logo...the famous "Rockin' L"

Just to give you an idea of how much this logo is loved and how huge LoboNation is here in East Texas, the video below is of the high school band forming the "Rockin L" at the end of a half-time performance during a football game...

:-D that gives me chills every time I see it, and its even better in person! Ok back to the they are...

These cookies obviously are not perfect. But they were just perfect for this event. The girls loved them! And what makes them even more special (to me) is that I made the cookie cutter!! Well duh, not the circle, the "L". I couldn't find anyone that sold "rockin L" cookie cutters, so I googled how to make one and went to work. It was too fun...
I love & hate that this is my baby's last year of high school, but I want her to enjoy it and savor every moment of it...starting with my cookies! Thanks for reading!
