Piercings, Manicures, & The Hobbit

I'm not sure what it is about battling in Middle Earth, but it sure makes me feel better about having to go to work on Monday.  Nothing at work could possibly be as scary as facing some of those Orcs, I mean, really.  And I have the added pleasure of watching Legolas (the very handsome Orlando Bloom) kick mega Orc butt and look graceful doing it.  If I could pick a character to be, I would really want to be an Elf...the grace, the dignity, and the epic ability to kick butt.  Pretty nice combo.

Saturday I treated myself to a manicure and my girl told me that I needed some sparkle, and she was right! These soft gold sparkly nails really gave me the mood boost I needed to handle the chaos of a school year winding down.

I love the glam!

I also was moral support for a friend getting a couple of piercings; I may have a fear of needles, but I can hold your hand like a champ! She didn't even flinch, so she is my current hero.

Max was one very excited puppy as he got to hang out with all of his puppy friends at daycare.  The workers at daycare tell me he has four girlfriends...somehow I managed to create a puppy player and I'm not exactly sure how that happened...

All of that playing and frolicking really takes a toll on a puppy.

Phil told me he heard rumblings of when his promotion ceremony will be, so with any luck I'll be able to pin him soon!  Speaking of promotions, I think I might have figured out a small gift to get Phil to commemorate it, but does anyone have any ideas?   I am a big fan of options!

I hope everyone has a wonderful week!  Max and I are in our usual couch cuddle spots with a little LOTR (hello again Legolas), some sweet tea (just because) and a book.  Have a great week!

Does anyone else have any ideas about promotion gifts that are sentimental but manly?

Linking up with Bianca!


  1. Yay so exciting about the impending promotion! My husband will be promoted sometime this year as well and I am so lost on what to get him. Ugh. Here is hoping we both come up with something.

    1. Right?!? I feel like this is complicated for some reason...I'll be searching Pinterest and will let you know what I find! :)

  2. I never went the gift route because he was deployed and bought himself a few gifts in anticipation of his return home. Interested to see what you come up with!
    This reminds me that I need to watch a LOTR movie...are they on Netflix?

    1. Sadly they are not! A movie day might be in order! :)

  3. Max is so cute! Maybe a nice pen set or a new tie would be a good gift? I like the gold nails. I haven't painted my nails in months; I need to buy some new polish.

    1. Those are great gift ideas! Thank you! These gold sparkles have really perked me up, I am a big fan! :)
