I'm SICK of this weather....LITERALLY

I am hardly ever complaining about the weather here in Seattle. I grew up in Germany and I am used to crappy weather :-) BUT this weather is HORRIBLE! It has been raining ALL week. sigh. It's annoying, I want summer :-( or at least sunshine?! A=and to top it off, I am STILL sick. Can't get rid of it.
When will I wear these again? My absolute favorite Steve Madden shoes. I bought them before my Puerto Rico Trip in November. If the weather were nice in Seattle I'd wear them every day :-D

They are super high, but because of the wedge they're super comfy too :)

they sell them in black too. I was sooo close to buy them in black as well, but I didn't and now I can't find my size anymore :'( 


I also painted my nails. SUPRISE!! :-)
 Sinful Colors - Mint Apple

Accent nails: Essence blue addicted...this color is absolutely stunning!

I hope the weather is better wherever you're at ;-)

Gute Nacht

Nails, Nails, Nails

I have accumulated some manis that I did. Starting with todays, going backwards. Enjoy =)

How cool is this??
I saw this on Pinterest a while ago, but I thought it was too difficult to do...until I watched a video on youtube. It is actually very easy! They say to use alcohol, but I don't have any clear alcohol, so I just tried with water and it worked :) What do you think??

This was my first attempt as well. It's kinda cool. No?

Sinful Colors-Cinderella
very cute blue. I topped the thumb and ring finger with China Glaze Lush & Luxe

St. Patricks Day Mani 
 woah I love this!!!!
Sinful Colors- Green Ocean
 This is 2 coats over black.
so pretty!! and for less than 2 bucks, awesome!

Which one do you like best?

I guess I will be doing my nails even more often now that my hubby is not home. He would always say: "You're doing your nails AGAIN????" haha :-) I miss him :-( 

Diego misses his daddy too....

Spring has finally arrived in Seattle! At least for a weekend LOL
I was celebrating with a Passion Tea Lemonade

I also spray painted some bottles. I will use these in our kitchen on the marble table as center pieces :)
I think I did a great job :) 

Well Ladies, I hope you'r not too bored with the pics. 
Sleepless in Seattle,

Love the soldier....hate the war!

Hello ladies,
Sorry for being absent lately. I'm actually posting this of my phone because I don't have the strength to sit on the computer. Things are not great at the moment. My husband just deployed to Afghanistan. :-( even though this is his 3rd deployment, it still doesn't get easier. I miss him and I will not be able to rest until he is back home safely. Unfortunately, that won't be for almost 1 year. If this wasn't enough to deal with: my dad had a heart attack last week. And I'm thousands of miles away from my family and there is nothing I can do. It's frustrating :-(
Thankfully I have my dog, my busy job and a handful of friends in Seattle that will be there for me whenever I need them.
Sorry I don't have a real post at this time. I will be back posting this weekend, promise.
I'm not sure if any of you are religious, but if you are please keep our troops in your prayers! They need it, the families need it. If you're not religious, please keep them in your thoughts....

Proudly married to a hero,

Sorry for being MIA this whole week. I had to get a Hysterosalpingogram (HSG) done today and I've been dreading it the whole time. I had so much anxiety this whole week that I couldn't even function properly. I shouldn't have googled the procedure and what people said about it. I've expected the worse.
I got it done at the army hospital in Ft. Lewis. My hubby came with me. We were early and a female soldier was ahead of me. Oh my gosh, she scared the SHHHH out of me. She was in the X-ray room and I heard her cry. I was freaked out. When she came out she looked like a mess. He husband had to hold her and she looked like she just gave birth....I must admit I almost fainted :-/ Then they called me in, explained the whole procedure...Oh my gosh I was scared for nothing. Ok not really NOTHING, it was uncomfortable, but bearable. Really really crampy but it was over quick. I'm so relieved. We had the images right away and I am glad I will hopefully never ever have to do this again.
Since I still feel a little tired from my lack of sleep this whole week, I will only post some little things I bought. I also bought some STEVE MADDEN Booties for 75% off. Will post a photo tomorrow! What a deal.
bought China Glaze Luxe & Lush at Sally Beauty Supply (who knew they had a military discount??))
Sally Hansen HD in Laser was 75% off at Rite Aid. I paid 1 dollar =D Mostly all of their polish was 75% off!!!

P2 in Poetic
H&M Blue My mind (my favorite blue!)

and a coat of of Luxe & Lush (this is from the new Hunger Games collection)

and voila!!! Last weekend was my lucky weekend. I found Whimsical!! yay finally!

I absolutely love it!!!

Happy Friday!
