Jamberry Junior

April252014My youngest daughter asked to have her nails done after seeing her sister’s fingers and toes.  So, I jumped at the opportunity to try the Jamberry Junior wraps on her.  These are the Mini Polka & Tropical Mirage design.

Mini Polka & Tropical MirageThis is what is left on the Jamberry Junior sheet after I did her pedicure.  We have enough left for at least another pedicure and a few manicures!

I am reminded to take the time and love on my daughter; showing in my actions how special she is to me.  I pray that as she looks at her fancy little nails, she is reminded of how much her mom loves her.

 

 

Mother and Daughter Date Night

I had promised my sweet oldest daughter that we would spend a dedicated evening together.  So what did this tween want to do?  Get a pedicure!  She was thrilled that we were doing this together, and I delighted in her huge smile the entire time of pampering.

Mother and Daughter Toes

She is growing up so fast; we are already wearing the same shoe size.  Time sure flies by, and I treasure each blessing of a moment!

BeautifulGirlhood

During dinner we read together Beautiful Girlhood by Karen Andreola and discussed the related chapter questions found in The Companion Guide to Beautiful Girlhood by Shelley Noonan and Kimberly Zach.  This was my favorite time of the evening when we shared with each other our dreams for our future, and the dreams that I had when I was her age.  It was a blessing that I found these used books at a local homeschool curriculum sale for a total of $7.oo, as the results are priceless!

An Unexpected Blessing

April222014

 

As part of our morning, the kids and I pray together for the Lord’s guidance in our daily priorities.  With this being the first week back to school after break, the momentum is slow to get back into routine.  In fact, we knew that some of our friends had this week off for Easter Break.  Because we homeschool, our schedule can be somewhat flexible.  Well…wouldn’t you know, that morning I receive a text from a dear friend from college who is camping at a nearby beach with her family.  She graciously invites us to join.  As I struggled with the thoughts of whether or not to put off school, I remembered the blessing of spending quality time with friends.  I knew that if we decided to go, we would have to make up our work the remainder of the week.  Would it be worth it?  Absolutely!  Hence, the above picture of the two of us.  Our kids had a blessed time together as well, and we enjoyed the beauty and wonder of our surroundings.

Jamberry Nails Independent Consultant

Jamberry Nails Independent Consultant

Not only did I start a blog this month, but I also started a side business as a Jamberry Nails Independent Consultant!  After trying these nail wraps, I was sold!  As a busy mom on a budget, I’d rather splurge on other things besides a bimonthly manicure that chips after day two.  These wraps lasted me over a week after many hand washes, bathing of kids, washing of dishes…you name it…I am rough on my hands!  Which is why I didn’t put any effort in having them done.  Never mind giving myself a manicure.  I am clumsy when it comes to polishing my own nails, and I’m impatient on the dry time.  Then enters a game changer…Jamberry Nails!  I’ll do a step by step post on applying this DIY manicure later.  But in the meantime, check out my website, and all 300+ designs!  It’s worth a try.
