friday ramblings

hey there

this is probably going to be the most random post you've ever read
just a warning 

let me start by telling you about my manicure that i got yesterday. 
you might know, i have been in colorado for about two weeks. in these past two weeks, my nails grew to a gross length. i'm talking i couldn't even type on my key board because they were so long. 
it was terrible.
yesterday, i finally convinced my mom to take me to get my nails done. 
i usually pick a "classic" color, like light pink or a new essie color. but, i decided to do something a little different. 
let's call it "the new year bug"
i went red! 

i literally can't remember the last time i painted my nails red. 
wait, actually i take that back. i remember sitting on my back porch when i was in second grade trying to paint my nails red. 
it was an utter disaster. i faintly remember the nail polish spilling everywhere, and having polish all over my nails. 

but let me tell you, this was one of the best manicures i have ever had! the lady doing my nails was so precise and the polish looks great! not only was my lady great, but she massaged my hands twice. TWICE.
aaanddd she used a hot stone. you know, like the ones you see in magazines on peoples backs?
 also, when my nails were drying a lady that worked in the salon asked me if she could give me a back massage. 
usually i would've declined her offer because i used to be weird, but because it's the new year and all i let her give me a massage. 
it was amazing. 
the place i go to in kentucky doesn't even massage my hands..

let's see what else is new....

oh yeah, two days ago my brother and i decided that we didn't want to do anything all day except cook. we decided that we wanted to cook dinner for our daddio
so of course, the first thing we did was head over to pinterest and find some yummy looking dishes. 
(i'm not going to lie i just forgot how to spell dishes)
we picked out a chicken parmesan recipe from Kraft, some asparagus, and some baked brie for an appetizer. all the dishes were beyond amazing. if you're planning on having or going to a party soon i totally recommend making baked brie with cranberry sauce and walnuts on top! it's super easy and super yummy.
i'm embarrassed to say this, but my family of four ate the entire circle of brie.

tonight my brother and i are making french onion soup and then for dessert we are going to johnny rockets for milk shakes! i can't wait. 

thanks for reading

  2. Brie with cranberry is so good! I love pinterest so much- I definitely get all my cooking & baking recipes from there! & It was definitely the right choice to go with red nails! They're super cute :)
