The Aftermath and Happy Halloween…

Hello blogland!! Hope you are all well and safe today in the wake of Sandy. I don’t even know what to say about the whole situation. It is just devastating. In all my life I have never seen such a storm to hit here in NY. Living on Long Island has it’s advantages for sure, but when it comes to storms, living on an island is not ideal. We were very fortunate and blessed to come through this storm virtually unharmed. We prepared as we were told to and our house survived with just a few scratches. We did lose power Monday night but we do have a generator so we okay.

Those that were not as lucky as us, well, we can only hope and pray that their lives return to normal as quickly as possible. And although there was so much damage to property, the loss of life was minimal, thank God.

So, needless to say, the kids have been off since Monday. I am not sure when the schools will open again. But they are excited to be off today since it is Halloween. Now, I am just not sure what to do as far as Trick or Treating???  I am thinking that most people will not be in the mood to celebrate. I guess we will play it by ear. We did have 2 parties we had attended last Friday so we were able to get dressed up and at least wear our costumes then.

We decided to be the Wizard of Oz……

How cute are they??

And yes, I did make my Dorothy costume, right down to the red glitter shoes….lol!

See, now you know why I haven’t been blogging lately!

Have a safe and Happy Halloween….

Happy Thursday ladies!! Hope you are all having a great week. 

I just have to tell you how excited I am that the trend of nail art is back. I know it is not for everyone, but I am all over this….lol!  I have always loved fancy nails. I always have a manicure because it just bothers me if my nails look bad, I feel ‘unfinished.’ 

Here is my latest nail design….

Cute, right?? The nail tech paints it all by hand and then I go in the UV light so there is no drying time at all. Just finish and go. 

Now, I am not always on top of going to the salon for a pedicure. As much as I would love to sit and get my tootsies rubbed all day, I just don’t have that much spare time. So, I found a new obsession….the Sally Hansen Nail Polish Strips. Most people use them on their nails, but they have them for toes too!!  They are about $10 but I found them at Target for $5 and I had a $1 off coupon. Score! I was so excited!

This is the snake print design. There are not as many options for the toes as there are for the nails. But it last a good 2-3 weeks and there is no chipping.


Sadly, I think my toes are going to have to say goodbye to the nice weather. It is getting cooler here and I think it is almost time for Uggs! 

Have a great day….
