Crackle Nails and Cheesiness

The other day I went to the store by myself for the first time since having Emily. It was nice being able to walk around without people staring at my enormous baby bump and feeling like I was going to split in two from carrying her. I missed Emily like crazy even just being gone for like an hour and a half, but I enjoyed getting out of the house. I treated myself to some pretty new nail polish. Since I can now reach my toes, I wanted to give myself a mani/pedi. I got 'It's Possible!' in OPI, 'Trophy Wife' in Essie, and 'Fractured Foil' in Sally Hansen for the Crackle overcoat. I put 'Trophy Wife' on first and then 'Fractured Foil' on top so that it would look like this:


You can't really see it that well but I love it! It's something I've never tried before and it's fun. I'm probably really behind on the whole "crackle" look but oh well!

Life's been great lately! Michael is still home with Emily and me until the end of the month and we have pretty much mastered the newborn thing. The only issue right now is getting her to sleep when we want to sleep but even that is not that big of a deal. I also don't mind having her in bed with me to sleep. Eventually we will need to have her sleep in her crib or pack n' play but for now...I love the closeness. Everything is going really well! She is a complete and utter joy in my life and I can't believe I am so blessed to have her. I love her so much! It may sound totally cheesy but having her has made my life feel so much more complete and meaningful. I was made to be her mommy!
