ahh, poinsettias. the epitome of the richness of the holiday, in my opinion.  personally, I celebrate Christmas because I believe that my relationship with the God of the universe is now completely reconciled.  and that was really only something to look forward to through the perfect life, sacrifice, and marvelous resurrection of Jesus, which obliterated my sin.  my life is being healed daily because of his love for me and I am thankful.  I feel like I can truly celebrate peace and hope, but not just November-December, but for eternity.  all the glory and honor to Him.

holy manicures, Batman!!  I haven’t done nail art in almost exactly one month!  I am so ashamed and so apologetic.  those darned final exams, ya know?!  haven’t had a good hour to sit down and do my nails without feeling entirely guilty for not instead studying.  anyways, was definitely inspired by the trendy Starbucks holiday cup I drank my tea in yesterday.  how cute is that little nutcracker?  okay, more to come, I PROMISE.

my friends, Alaena and Talia, came over today and we did nails!  Alaena just turned 11 and she wanted a little bit of everything done, so she got rubby ducky images, bubbles, and a giraffe print.  Talia loves zebra print, but we switched it up and did it on Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Celeb City.  had a great time, it was a good way to end finals week.  :]  now, homeward bound!

nails were finally getting long and good-looking.
break one.  badly.
can’t just cut one nail down and leave the rest.
chop all off.
file until smooth.
weep.

this happened to me yesterday.
I knew you all would understand.
