OPI Mad as a Hatter from the Alice in Wonderland Collection. I loved looking at my nails all today.
They sparkled and shined.
I was a hit with the girls in my class.
I do have one problem. The polish had worn off at the tips by the end of the day. I have 3 coats of polish and 1 coat of a top coat. Maybe using more top coats may have prevented the flaking off. If you have worn glitter polish and know how to keep it on, please share.
We are having a new school built. My school is over 50 years and with the bond money they are rebuilding many of the schools in my district. Well, the new school will be ready to move into Memorial Day weekend. We have to have our boxes packed and ready before we leave that Friday. See that orange closet behind me? Well, I have 5 double door closets with additional space up towards the ceiling and they are full with 18 years of teaching stuff. I have a month to go through and toss or pack what I want. I received 4 boxes so far to pack my items in. Do you think they don't want us taking our junk into the new building?

I love these sandals they look like Brightons but cost much less. I put them on top of my file cabinets for the picture. I have 5 file cabinets to go through as well.
Lazy Saturday morning turned into a busy afternoon. After my son's school carnival, the two of us went to see How to Train a Dragon at the movies. It was cute and I cried. I cry just about every movie. Sweater set and crop pants-Quacker Factory via QVC Shoes-DSW Jewelry-Dots, all on sale
Close up of the jewelry. I purchased these last month on sale.
I am so tired! We had a meeting after school to go over the procedures for next weeks state testing. The meeting was long. Black knit cardigan-Walmart, old
Lipstick cami-Torrid, Feb '10
Gray pants-JCPenney, Jan'10
Python Shoes-Avenue, Mar '10
Necklace-Self made, Nov '09
Ring-James Avery, gift
I can't believe I made this. I attended a jewelry making class with a girlfriend and we each made a necklace. The hardest part was deciding colors and placement of the beads.
Love this bracelet and wear it often. The ring was a gift from my sweetie and wear it daily.
Close up of cami and nails.
My killer shoes! They stretched out and they kept slipping off my heels. I need to get some insole inserts to see if that will help. I will be sad if I have to give them away.
After work today I popped into Payless because it's BOGO time and was looking for some cut,e fun shoes to wear for earth day tomorrow. And I left with 2 new pairs of black shoes. I spied some jewelry that I may go back and get in the near future.
