Hi Everyone--well remember how I was crowing about surviving winter storm Nemo? I might have spoken too soon. Yesterday I slipped and fell on the ice on my way out for shopping with my mom. And by fell I mean FELL. I stepped off our back stoop hit nothing but ice on my dumb tennis shoes and went down. The whole time I was falling I told myself to keep my head forward because I was afraid of smacking it on the cement stoop. I honestly thought I was no worse for wear. Nothing hurt too bad when I got up. I landed on my butt and back but neither of them hurt at all. I had a little throbbing in my hand and elbow were they hit the ground but that was it.
I played it down to my mom because she has enough to worry about so off we went shopping for 4 hours or so.
I got home last night sat down for about 10 minutes and holy hell my knee started to throb something fierce. It got to the point I couldn't really get up off of the couch with it. Okay I know it's not broken, I know it was just over extended a bit. I blew out my acl roller skating once so I know when something's really wrong. This is just being overweight and overage lol! BUT man oh man it hurt. I went to bed early hoping to find some solace in the comfort of a hot cowboy romance and woke up at 6am to a sore as all get out neck and knee! Yikes! I've been adviling it up but I had plans to spend some time with the grand nephew today because I didn't see him yesterday. Well that's kybashed! UG! I'm sure I'll be good as new in a couple of days but until then this sucks!
AND to top it off it's raining outside so all our beautiful snow on the trees has melted and I didn't get to take any pictures of the snow laden branches dang it!
But after all this whining I've done to you I do have a pretty manicure to show you. I ordered this gorgeous Red Dog Design, My Funny Valentine the other day and it is DELIGHTFUL! It has circle glitter! I love the circle glitter. Captured in a clear base there are red, gold and black circle glitters with red holographic hearts. I had seen my friend Sheila of Pointless Cafe layering over black and I loved it. I asked the creator My Funny Valentine to pick a plate number for me for an accent nail and WHAM! A beautiful and sexy Valentine's Mani!
The image I stamped with is from BM317--I'm sure it will get some good use this time of year lol!
I chose Butter London Knees Up for the accent nail because I love it!
My Funny Valentine is part of the Ol Blue Eyes Collection available at Red Dog Designs. I also picked up Hey! Jealous Lover and am planning a mani with that as well. You can find Red Dog Designs through her Facebook Page on Big Cartel HERE.
I hope everyone is having a great weekend and let's be careful out there!
