DIY Gel Nails {10 Day Nail Test}

Have you seen those at home gel nail kits?
Well, I've been eyeing them for awhile.
A friend of mine had her nails done at the salon, and she loved them.  
It wasn't cheap at $30 a pop.
Why pay salon prices?
Not me... I'm too cheap...
Knowing that I'm leaving on a cruise in 3 DAYS!!!
I wanted my nails to look pretty and I didn't want to have to deal
 with them for the trip.
So, I went out and bought this kit. It was about $50, but it should do 10 manicures!! Do the math...$5 per manicure! Now you're talking!

Stacked & Stenciled Frame

One frame completed for the gallery wall!
Only about 15 more to go....
I think I'm finally on a roll here.
To be honest it has been intimidating me.
It's not, that I don't think I can't do it, I just don't want it to mess it up.
 I want it to look AWESOME!!!
In order for the awesomeness to take place, 
I'm working on making each frame unique.
It's going to be a gallery wall that I'm going to call "Through the Years".
Starting with a wedding photo.

Pretzel Bottom Reese's Chocolate Cookie Pie

Ok....
This was insanely chocolate!
Insanely fattening and buttery!
But ohhhh so good!
If you need a chocolate fix this is it.
We were having our Bible group over on Sunday, and I was in the mood to bake something sinfully delicious!
I asked hubby look at my Pinterest board called "Sinful Pleasures". 
It is filled with all kinds of gooey, chocolatey, sugar filled treats!

Anyway.... He's looking and looking.... and drooling... (just kidding)
There are so many delicious yummies to choose from!
You can check out my boards here.
He picked the Pretzel Bottom Reese's Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie.

Pointille Heart Art

This was so much fun to do.
I felt like a little kid playing in paint.
I'm working on some frames for the gallery wall, but this was so quick and easy I just had to squeeze it in before Valentines. :)
Isn't this adorable??
I used my iPhone for most of the pictures and I'm surprised how well they came out.... Works for me!
