I am just sitting here waiting for my nails to dry. Have you tried Maybelline’s Express Finish nail polish? The bottle says it dries in 50 seconds and it totally does! I love it. Right now I am wearing the “Berry Boucle” color (#250).
Ever since I got engaged, I am very conscious of having my nails done. I can’t afford to get professional manicures but I make sure my nails are freshly painted every weekend before I see everybody. I have resolved lately to dress up and take more pride in my appearance, fix my hair, etc. It is something I worked on before in the past and it really makes you feel more confident. I kind of let that lapse for awhile and just put my wet hair up into a bun every day. When I was home for Christmas, I got dressed every day and fixed my hair and it really made a difference so I am trying to keep that up since I got back to California.
We are having people over for a game night tonight so I am making chili. Hope its fun. The two people that I consider our best friends here might not be coming so that is disappointing to me because I am kind of anxious hanging out with people from B’s work that are more strangers to me.
I think I have pretty much decided to just go with our original plan for the wedding and just accept it and move on with planning and setting things up. I was considering changing our venue, then having a brunch wedding instead of a dinner reception, and some other things (including eloping staright to our honeymoon destination – but I know I would regret that). I feel like since we have so many out of town guests from B’s side, we should just have the whole thing and dinner reception, etc. I am so excited to get married, just nervous about standing in front of people and feeling guilty about the money. I just have to move on with it though. Weddings are almost like walking at your college graduation and many other things. In a way you don’t want to do it at the time, but later you look back and are glad you did, for the pictures, memories, and experience.
