A funny thing happened on the way to the store

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!


  1. Well falling is no fun, but on the bright side you have a super amazing mani that I'm super jealous of!

  2. Wow, I'm glad nothing was seriously hurt, especially your noggin! I hope that knee gets better soon. Anyway, this is a gorgeous mani and I love circle glitter. Im pretty sure that the in thing now with indies. Beautiful work :)

    1. I think I love the circle glitter more than the square glitter!

  3. These are pretty! I love those red heart glitters!

  4. Sorry for your fall lady. Man I've been there before!! As the adrenaline and shock wears off you start hurting worse and worse. Just try to take it easy and keep up those georgius manis. :0)
