Nail Files!

The Nail Files Link Up

I think this is my first link up with the nail files :).

Sorry for the crappy phone picture and the crappy paint job!  I had just touched up some chips (we've been organizing, etc, so I  haven't been careful with my polish).
I love this color! It's Knees Up by Butter London (the red), and Jingle Bells by China Glaze.

  butter LONDON - Metallic Red Nail Polish – Knees Up

The red reminds me a lot of OPI's Affair in Red Square (which I also love!).

I paint my nails once a week (at least), and own more nail polish than anyone I'm sure I'll be linking up more often! :)

Happy Holidays!

It's Okay Thursday! :)

Its Ok Thursdays

It's Okay Thursday! It's time to link up with Amber and Neely!

First of all, Happy Holidays! :)  Now, on to the list!

It's okay...

that I celebrate Christmas WELL past the 25th! It's my favorite holiday (aside from my birthday), so I leave up my tree, watch Christmas movies, and generally just relax and enjoy.

that I'm REALLY enjoying my time off this year!

that I'm still dreaming of shopping for more Christmas presents (for others...and me!).

that I LOVE when the stores are all decorated...and stay that way for a while!  

that I'd be okay if we didn't get any more snow this year...I really dislike driving in it.

that I really love my A Christmas Story village...I added another building (thanks, mom!)

Sorry it's's a phone picture! :)

Well, there you have it! :)

Happy Holidays!

This week's questions:

1. What is your favorite holiday tradition?

I'm not really sure! When I lived with my parents, we were always allowed to open our pajamas on Christmas eve so we could wear them to bed. I really liked that one :).

2. Do you have a certain holiday movie you watch more than others? If so, what it is?

I watch so many! 
A Christmas Story
Christmas Vacation
Love, Actually
Mixed Nuts
Home Alone (1 and 2)
Fred Claus
Four Christmases
The Holiday

3.  Show us your favorite decoration or pinterest decoration you wish you could have. 

I've been trying to send myself a picture from my phone of my "A Christmas Story" village, but my technology is failing me.  I have the house itself, the school, the joke shop and the Chinese restaurant. I LOVE putting them out...they're so cute!
It worked!

4. Favorite Holiday song.

I love Christmas music, so I have a lot of favorite songs.
The Man with the Bag--Kay Starr
Sleigh Ride--Ella Fitzgerald
Anything by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Bing Crosby, The Carpenters...:)

5. Favorite Holiday Dessert.

My mom makes an oreo cookie dessert with mint chocolate chip ice cream, chocolate sauce, and whipped cream that is so delicious! 

6. What is on your wish list this year?

There's nothing I really need :), but since you asked (if I lived in a perfect world)
New boots (tall ones...probably brown, but not riding boots)
A rose gold watch (I have a silver one from Guess and I really like it, so I'd probably go with that again)
