Instead of reading my blog today, go do this...

Paint your nails! Seriously, GO DO IT!  Or, even better, if you have the money just go get a mani/pedi.



As part of my 2013 resolution to find more *ME* time, I have been taking the time to pamper myself. I am showering regularly, wearing jeans instead of sweats (at least 3 or more times a week). EASY!  I am taking baby steps here. I am also doing my hair and makeup regularly. I mean, after all, I am a lady dammit, it's time I look like one! Plus, I am a proud badass mom, why can't I be sassy and fabulous too?

Last week I found that pretty purple nail color in Walgreens on sale for .99 cents, so of course I bought it with every intention of putting it on that night!  I LOVE IT!  Not too light for winter, but not too dark to have me mistaken for a witch, just perfect winter purple... Ever since I swiped that first stroke of purple on my bare boring nails, I have felt pretty and sassy. I love looking down at my hands and seeing my pretty nails.  I even feel sassy in my sweat pants with my rockstar hands.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE go paint your nails!  I truly think you will feel instantly sassy too. There is something so lady like and sweet about pretty nails.  Maybe it's just me... but I don't think so. Seriously, stop reading and go paint your nails!

And then just to be awesome and humor me, take a picture and post it to the First Time Mom and Dad Facebook page.  Pretty (nails) please. Click Here to visit our page.


Happy Friday! I hope you have a sassy and fabulous weekend.

Your nails look awesome!!! Mine are too short to paint, letting them grow out so during my full pamper me day in two weeks there will be something there to paint :-)
Keep up the badass-ness!!

Sorry kid, your mom doesn't play well with others said...

Yes! This is something that I ALWAYS do. I don't always have time to fix my hair or have perfect make up but you bet your sweet ass my nails are always done!

I feel sassy just reading about doing my nails. LOVE that color by the way.

I will go paint my nails. I was going to give myself a pedi yesterday, but I only got as far as the calluses on my feet (and I shaved my legs and exfoliated...) I think I did a pretty good job to start right? I mean...Brian NOTICED that my feet were extra smooth when they were very cold and I put them on his legs because I am hilarious like that. Or mean. You decide.

You would scream if you saw my nails. My toes have specks of purple nail polish on them. I have been 2 lazy to remove it. I painted them two months ago and that is all that is left of the color!! I will get them done next week. :)

There is something so soothing about talking the time to pamper yourself. And thanks I am totally in Love with this purple.

I try to keep my nails short so I don;t scratch little man, but not too short for a little pretty pampering. YOu keep up the badass-ness too!!

I should have known... The way you hold it down and do the damn thing, sassy nails have to be a part of that badass-ness!

NADINE!!! Girl, go paint over those chips! That's what I do.... And remember, don;t save for tomorrow, what can be done today...or something like that. My mom was always saying that to me.

It looks awesome!! I bought licorice and painted my nails a week back. Sadly, most of it has flaked off now!

My daughter swiped some blue glitter polish on my ring finger and I felt pretty rockin' with that. Maybe I'll do the rest. . . or maybe I'll leave that as my signature style. :) Ellen

Literally painted my nails on Saturday night...fingers and toes. And it felt so good!
