Gooey eye nails

The really nice people at nail polish Canada sent me a really cool Halloween themed plate.
I wasn't sure which one I was going to do so I started with a black base and once that was on I decided that the eyeball with the only way to go. I forgot to take a picture before I scratched it up. 

The results are so rad. From a distance it looks like some sort of pop art and up close then you see it's a gooey eyeball!!

Do you have Halloween themed nails? Post a link below!

Nailed it.

I have zero patience for nails and even less time for them now. 

For my birthday I got a shellac manicure and regular polish pedicure. I know, I know toes are ugly!

Lincoln Park After Dark of course. So fast forward 15 days later and they'd grown to the point I wasn't sure if I should let it grow or spend my precious free time soaking it off. 

Then my friend Courtney said how a friend of hers fills in the gaps with a different color! 

Dude! Total game changer. Took maybe 2 minutes and it's like a funky new look! Why didn't I ever think of this?!

I love shellac and it's great for a mom, except the removal takes time. Do you do this? How long do you let shellac go?

Falling leaves.

The weather has been changing finally and it's my favorite time of year. 
No not because of Pumpkin spice latte, I'm in a minority I believe, I think it's gross. I also have never had pumpkin pie. But I do enjoy myself a pumpkin pie truffle or flavored cream cheese. Or anything pumpkin scented. I love the smell of crisp air. I love the sound of leaves crunching. I love the colors of all the disciduious trees. Disciduwhat? Ha. Any other mother or father of a child probably seen the episode of Sesame Street where Chris and Leela rap about trees. 

On Saturday we went to my dad's and it was the perfect night. Cool air, home cooking and a happy kid. 

She really wanted to rake the leaves. Even though the rake was twice her size. Dave remembered that there was one in her sandbox. 

Today we walked around Portsmouth. It was overcast but never rained and cold enough we all wore sweatshirts. 

Classy is bathroom selfies. Oh wait...

I let my minion taste candy for the first time. It was organic so it's like a salad. She knew exactly what to do with it. Which made me nervous. 

And she helped put the groceries away. Man it amazes me daily what she understands. I told her to put stuff in the drawer and she opened it and put it in. Then proceeded to shove it as hard as she could when it didn't fit. She also put cheese in the crisper. My fault. I only said drawer not which one. 

I decided yesterday to try and go gluten free. I know I am the expert on it in our family. I know it inside and out. But I don't know how Dave does it. I can't stop thinking about gluten. I was tested for Celiac via blood test, DNA, endoscopy and it was all negative. I've had a colonoscopy and had my thyroid checked. Everything comes back fine but I feel like crap. Have for 10 years. It started September 2004 when I got h.pylori. I had a zillion tests and basically nothing is wrong with me. I tried gluten free back then, but to be honest I wasn't dedicated because I wasn't Celiac. I am wondering though if I am gluten intolerant. Today was the first day. When Dave went GF he never ever cheated. In 10 years not once ate gluten, knowingly. (Some times places/restaurants lied to him. Grrrr)

Between the pain, migraines, horrible skin and overall complete exhaustion and  insomnia I need to figure out what it is. 

I'm so fussy of an eater. I don't know how to do this. :/

She can't drive 55

I'm Eliza has a little car my dad got for her that is at his house. We go over every Saturday afternoon and it's one of her favorite things. We tried taking the floor board out when she first got it back in May but she almost fell right through it she was so small. Since then she started walking and gotten bigger (finally) recently. 

Saturday they tried removing it again. 

She let them know what she thought. 

She went and got it and tried to put it back in. 

She was like, guys you push me around in this. This is how it works. 

To make it up to her my dad made a gas hose for her. She pretended to fill it with her finger until now. 

Then yesterday I got a text of this. 

She's the only one year old I know with her own car, gas station and tree house with solar lights. 

Think my dad has been anxious to be a grandfather or anything?! Ha. 

He really stepped up and took on the role like my Pop was to me. Pop was my entire world. I miss him so much it hurts to breathe when I think about it. 

I really wish Eliza Poppy got to meet her name sake. But then I remember, Pop was my dad's dad, so he had the best teacher in the world to know how to be a grandfather.
