I’ve been feeling rather… blah lately.
The weather has been dreary, cold and super snowy in Michigan. For the last 6275682452 months…
Hubster has been working a 3-11:30pm 2nd shift for the last 6 months or so leaving me running solo 6 days a week.
Y’all, it is getting to me.
I’m feeling lonely, old, tired and more than a little frumpy.
It feels like my life and my house are just a hot mess.
The perfect storm of suck.
One night while I was browsing Pinterest in an attempt to stay awake long enough to see Hubs I came across a pin for a DIY shellac-esque manicure.
I love, LOVE, LOVE getting mani/pedis. Love it. But I can’t rationalize spending $50 every couple of weeks to getting my nails done. And I’m pretty sure an active, semi-destructive, climbing machine of a 15 month old wouldn’t exactly make the experience relaxing. And truthfully, as much as I absolutely adore my son, I spend 24/7 with D and there are days I need some me time.
This pin was amazing and I couldn’t wait to try it. I put D in the car and off to Sally Beauty Supply we went.
This Momma takes every opportunity I can to get out of the house!
Sally’s didn’t have one of the products I needed. I have been diligently calling Sally’s every Wednesday for the past month waiting to see if the out of stock, backordered had come in yet.
This morning I gave in to MIL’s
incessant pleas request to spend a day with D to clean my out of control house and take a shower in peace. Oh a whim I decided to quick pop in to Sally’s to see if the last thing I needed was back in stock.
Miracle of miracles, they had it! (Cue Mommy happy dance!!!) I bought 2 bottles.
Nothing like the promise of some self-indulgent pampering to get my butt in gear to clean the house!
