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.
