Easter Nails!!!

Choose your colors and then use a bobby pin to make perfect polka dots!

Colors I used to achieve this look: 
Neon Violet nail lacquer from American Apparel
Peach nail lacquer by Tic Tac (Gifted from my sister Ashley, & she got it from Chicago) 
Clear Base Coat from OPI

The Tic Tac Peach is one of my favorite colors, and I wish she would've got me more!  Even though the color is named Peach, in person it is more like a light neon pink.

Nice to meetchya

As my first official post, I thought I would back track to a couple weeks ago when I celebrated my Spring Fling themed Birthday Party!  I originally saw this sign on Pinterest for somebody's wedding and thought, "Why do weddings get to have all the fun?  Mine's over... bummer."  Fear not, with a few alterations, my Spring Fling B-day party had a signature cocktail sign! 

Chelsey Patti
My Husband David recreated this sign using a grocery bag and a sharpe!
(Pardon my one painted nail, getting ready time goes by so quickly)

And so now you ask, "What was this amazing cocktail that required it's own sign?"  Well folks, it was a Bourbon Bomber and it was pretty good!

One part apple cider, one part ginger ale, and some lemon juice.  Add desired amount of bourbon & Sprig of rosemary.

Spring Fling Birthday Party

To make my February Birthday a little more springy (even though the temperature in Nashville was already like Wisconsin's March or April) I added some fresh spring colors to the mix! A homemade banner idea was super easy and fun! 

That's the large version, and then I couldn't resist making a lil baby banner as my good friend the baker chick did in her cake topper how to.  That idea inspired the larger banner above.  Basically the same principal to make both!

Add some flowers and candles and VOILA-  SPRING FLING BIRTHDAY PARTY
