last days of summer: into the city

Thursday ~ August 28th, 2014 @ 10:03 am


We ventured into arlington to see and visit daddy’s place o work and then continued our adventure by metroing into the city



Metro-ing and going into Washington DC was a first for both kids, and while the managed pretty okay they definitely do not yet have an appreciation for the museum.










as Luna had said it was a fun family day ♥


i be Jammin’

about a month or so ago I attended my first Jamberry facebook party and pretty much fell in love. Basically they are nail wraps, in awesome designs, they are simple to put on, last a long time, have no harsh smell or chemicals, and are basically just awesome.

Each sheet is $15 (buy 3 get the 4th free) and contain enough wraps to do two mani and pedis plus accent nails. I also have acquired a good amount of sample/ accent sheets from attending and participating in facebook parties.


I even managed to do Luna’s nails, although we are still in a learning process with the best technique to apply them with her is. I was able to get her big toes done good and they are still looking great going on two weeks.

I will be hosting my very own facebook party at the end of this week which will last through next week after the new catalog premiers. I’m pretty excited.

i really do dig them.

We had an awesome weekend with some awesome people. Saturday we headed up to Reston to visit with family and some old friends.

The plan was to go to the Reston zoo, It was hot and as are most zoo’s smelly, but getting to see and visit with family and friends definitely made it worth it. Not to mention seeing how excited Wade got at seeing all the animals.










Then we headed back to our friends house for a bbq and sleep over.






added bonus we took the scenic route there and back.
