Rainbow Honey, March Challenge, and some ink.


Hello darling readers!  I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend so far.  My hubby works swing shift and his days off rotate so this is the first full week-end he's had off in awhile.  A couple of weeks ago, on my birthday, we stopped in at the tattoo shop that we like to go to, just to see if they had any walk-in appointments available because I've been wanting to get a hummingbird tattoo for about 6 years now as a tribute to my grandmother, who passed away in 2009.  She loved to watch the hummingbirds everyday when they would come to the feeder and she would tell me all about them every time I talked with her with such excitement and it made me happy to know how happy they made her so when I found this photo, I knew I had to have it done one day.  Unfortunately, the night we stopped in, they were competely booked, so we had to make appointments (my hubby also wanted to get a memorial tattoo for his Dad, who we lost 6 months ago) and the first available one that we could take was for last night.  Anyway, long story short, this is what I had done last night.

And now  onto the nail stuff after the jump.  :0)

My ELF haul....

Good early morning, darling readers!  First off, I have to apologize for not having the give-away started.  I have a couple more items I'm going to be adding to it and will be getting a gift card/certificate/code for my international readers for this one, so it will be a few more days before I get it started.  Please bear with me during this time.  :0)  I also wanted to say another reason for the delay is that one of my kitties gave birth on the 10th to four gorgeous little kittens!  Here is a quick photo.

The two orange tigers are male and the other two are female.  We have found homes for all four when they are old enough to go and Momma Kitty will be getting spayed as soon as possible.

This morning I have a quick ELF haul post for you!  The first two photos was the first order I received last week and the third photo is what I received today.  I'll add a break-down of everything I received sometime later today so y'all know what everything is.  And now for your viewing enjoyment, the photo's!

First order.

Mail kitty isn't looking too happy with all the stuff on HIS blanket.  lol

A few items from this may or may not be included in the give-away!

And that, my darlings, is all I have for you this early am.  It's already almost 1:30 am and I need to try to get myself a little sleep since I need to be up at 4:30.  

As always, thank you for spending a few minutes with me.  Huggles!

Up for a challenge? And a Give-Away soon....

Good early morning, darling readers! I'm back again.  :)  I didn't intend to take a break again after having my injections done, but my body had other ideas, unfortunately.  I ended up having a second set of injections done, then I had what is called Radio Frequency Ablation or RFA, for short, done.  During that procedure, they go in through a very thin needle and burn the nerve endings off.  The idea is to lessen the pain I was having in my tailbone area.  I had thought the procedure worked, but am not so sure of that now.  Anyway, that is the reason I was gone for so long.  But I've decided, pain or no pain, I am going to do my nails.  It's a good way to help distract me from what's going on with my body and I enjoy the process.  And now for nail stuff.  :<)

I would like to take a moment to say a giant THANK YOU to Leigh Ann of Polished Into A Corner for nominating me for the Leibster Award.
I will be answering the questions she asked when she nominated me and will be making my nominations within the next few days as I've been, to be honest, struggling a little to find blogs that fit the requirements to be nominated.

In my last post, I had mentioned maybe starting a monthly challenge of some kind.  Well, now is as good a time as any to get started.  :0)  For March, our challenge will be to use the color green in a mani.  Since St Patrick's Day is on the 17th, I thought the color appropraite.  I wanted to start off with something fairly simple that everyone can do.  In the coming months, I may start doing an and/or type of challenges, or beginners/advanced type challenges.

Now, the question I have for y'all, because I would love to see all of your challenge mani's, is how would y'all like to submit your photo's?  Do y'all want to use inlinks or would you rather just e-mail them to me and I can post them to a challenge page?  Either way, you should watermark your photo (if you aren't sure how to do this and we go with the e-mail option, I can do it for you) before submitting so we know who did each mani.  :0)

Before I go, I have one more item I want to talk about and it's a fun thing....since I missed my 1st year blogiversary and I didn't do anything for the holidays, I'm going to have a Give-Away!  It'll be starting this Saturday so please be on the lookout so you can enter.  

That is all I have for the moment.  I have been working hard, doing a few mani's and getting photo's and all that good stuff for another review for Rainbow Honey and for an indie company that is up and coming.  Until my next post, take care of yourselves and be kind to each other.  Huggles!
