Awkward Friday posting

Yesterday I went to the mall with my best friend (and baby Nicholas) to help her find a dress for this weekend.  While finishing up at Target, I went to the cosmetics aisle to pick out a new bottle of nail polish (I went through my collection earlier this week and was shocked and depressed that I had absolutely no pink). While pursuing the colorful bottles, I started eyeballing the sets of press on nails located on a shelf nearby.  After taking a closer look I saw the most amazing thing ever:

Press on toenails. 

And of course I bought myself a pair. Now no one has to know I have a janky toe!

That's me ... always keeping' it classy.

I'm gonna glue the little baby on tonight and see how it goes. I was a little unsure if the big toe press on would actually fit across my nail bed because, as a classmate so aptly pointed out to me in 10th grade French class, I have "chicken nugget toes" and am nasty and unlovable.

So we'll see how it goes.  If I'm brave enough (double emphasis on the "if"), I might post a picture of how it looks.  Maybe.  

I'm actually in a terrible mood today. I'm tired and cranky. Right around seven this morning, I woke up with a severe charley horse that hurt so bad I thrashed around on the mattress like a two year-old having a tantrum. I've scared the living daylights out of Clayton in the middle of the night before because, as those of you who have had them can attest to, charley horses hurt so bad they cause me to audibly gasp in pain. Ugh. They are horrible. And giving them a cutsie name like "charley horse" is just insulting to the entire ordeal and people named Charley. They need to be called "catastrophic calf contraction cramps" or "gee! this must be what dying feels like".

To help elevate my mood, I started looking at funny pictures online. is always a great site to visit when you need a little sunshine in your life. As evidenced right here:

And here:

When I'm feeling down and out, I also like to google pictures of beagle puppies. If looking at picture of adorable puppies doesn't bring a smile to your face, then you're probably incapable of smiling anyway. 

This one has speckled feet just like Joey!

Okay, I think it's safe to say that I just had an epileptic seizure from the cuteness overload. I literally have a cramp from contorting my body in convulsions of happiness.

I feel so much better.

So, I guess that means I can save my other favorite pick-me-up for a rainy day:


  1. I used to wear those!! Until one fell off on a guy's couch during a date. I couldn't find it, but I'm sure he was really pleased when he did. Awkward.
