Santa Nails & Inadequate Bacon

by Brittany on December 2, 2011

It’s Friday!  :D

Before anything else, check out these santa nails I found on Pinterest last night!

Just for the record, if anyone happens to be a nail artist who would like to pass along some Santa nails to my finger tips as a Christmas gift, my nails are all yours!

(The Santa references in my morning posts are out of control 8) )

Breakfast this morning was a big bowl of cereal with an interesting assortment of bacon.

1 cup Rice Chex cereal, frozen blueberries, sliced banana, unsweetened coconut flakes, and unsweetened almond milk.

I opened a new package of Applegate turkey bacon this morning, and two of the strips were lacking in the “completeness” department. One was a mini piece, while the other was so thin that I felt like I was putting a sheet of turkey paper on the pan. Naturally, I compensated by considering both of these teeny pieces as one whole normal slice.

In size order ;) :

Plus an unpictured cup of coffee with the last of my vanilla coconut milk creamer. I’m in a dilemma because I used the last of the carton, but only have a couple more mornings of waking up in Orlando. Knowing me, I’ll probably pick some more up at the store and bring the rest back with me when I travel home for the holidays. Hey, coffee is coffee! Priorities ;)

Today marks day 2 of my 25 Days of Thanks series–

25daysp

Day 2: I am thankful for my faith. Although it is a relatively new addition to my life, it is absolutely the most fulfilling. I’m so fortunate to have the ability to openly express my beliefs in a public setting through worship & prayer, without receiving threats or harassment from my own government (which is sadly the case in many nations.) When I’m feeling low, I’m thankful that I have the ability to open up my Bible and find “just the right passage” to remind me that I’m not meant to try to get through the hardships of life on my own.

A bit to watch: Popcorn going nuts for a full minute and a half–

Those santa nails are amazing!! I have an addiction to nail polish and at christmas I always to a christmas themed nail marbling. I usually get together with my sister and we do it together, it takes time, but it’s awesome! It’s also great to do at girls nights..there’s a bunch of tutorials on YouTube if any one is interested!

I’m not good with my nails, AT ALL, but I’d love to take in that photo for my next manicure and get the plain, non-santa design done. Bring on the glitter!

My daughter asked if I could paint her nails “Santa” nails. Yikes. I had to break it to her, that doing one color is hard enough for me LOL!

That is quite the creamer dilemma! You could definitely bring it home with you since you can drive–the TSA might give you grief about trying to bring that on the plane though :)

2 deformed bacon pieces totally = one normal sized bacon piece.

Those nails are AMAZING! I just went and got my nails done today. They were a dark red before and I decided to change it up and go with a bright “candy-apple” red in the spirit of Christmas. (It’s almost identical to the red on the Santa nails) I’m loving it- the bright color is so much fun. :)
Popcorn is seriously the cutest thing ever. That video made my day!
