Family Friday! + Blue Nails + A giveway



It’s Friday and Im freaking stoked (started out a little bumpy) but my sister is coming from Austin to visit us this weekend, to see our new abode and to help us be more decisive about all this furniture biznazz. But most importantly, I can’t wait to see little nieces and nephewsssss all running around like the crazy big kids they are now. My 5-year-old nephew even insisted he bring his OWN pillows. Seriously how grown up is he??? “He insisted we pack our own pillows” were my sister's exact words. Sounds like an old man to me!

So back to the topic of the furniture buying process, I just have to give a shout out to Stephanie over at BEAUtifulmess. I think she really hit the nail on the head with this post… you want to buy so much at the beginning, and it can somewhat consume you. You have more space than you ever did, and your college furniture looks so small lol! I want a huge linen upholstered headboard, a bar piece, a table, a sectional, foyer pieces and the list goes on and on and on. And even worse, I want to wait til I get all these things to invite people over. Straight up bananas right? But that is not what having a home is all  about.  You really have to take a step back and say “this isn’t going to happen overnight,” and also learn how to say hey Craig hey!

Ok and that’s mushiness for the day. So excited to spend time con mi familia this weekend!! Hope everyone is having a great Friday!!! Oh and here is my giveaway.

I will post more pictures of everything later, have some serious camera problems but here a few of the goodies: A paint your own nails start up kit, including the BEST top coat ever. A few buffers which I highly recommend!! Seriously I wouldn’t lie. And two of the hottest colors this winter!! Also a Zara Scarf,  and some cutie Kendra Scott earrings perfect for the holidays.

And here are my current nails for the nail files - totally swooning over glitter lately which is so unsual for me. It's one coat of Essie "Midnight Cami," glitter on the tips, then then top coat. If you don't seal the glitter with the top coat, it looks kinda funky.



Love you Guys!!
Tessy

Oh my goodness, I can totally relate to the furniture thing. My fiance and I just bought a house and we are SO guilty of this. He told me we can't have Christmas Eve at our house this year because "we won't have the tile and countertops done yet." AAAH and my thing is a new dining room set. Sigh!

Owning a home is so funny. You want it to be perfect, but it takes time. I definitely had those feelings and was a CRAZY person before I had my first party. I've loosened up a little since then, but I still go through a crazy phase before I have people over. :) I don't think that ever goes away!

Have fun with your family!!
