Another Quickie

You'd think with summertime upon me that I'd have more time to make some blog posts. But, yesterday I spent the day gallivanting around town with my mom + maw maw and paw paw. We had a yummy Cracker Barrel lunch and hit up some of our favorite spots.

While we were at Cracker Barrel I saw this sign and had to snap a pic.

How true are those words? So often people either a. dislike me at first because they think I'm "too" happy or b. constantly question how I can be "so" happy all of the time. I feel like this quote should be my mantra. Mmhmm!

Ok, so enough cheese above....I also painted my nails a neon pink to coincide with my awesome little iPad case. I love it and it instantly puts a smile on my face. Please pay no attention to my weird thumb...I hear Megan Fox has the same ailment as well. I guess I'm in good company! ; )

I scored the color at Nordstrom Rack {it's a lot brighter in person} and about peed my pants when I discovered how fast this magic potion polish dries! Seriously, I want to go back and buy out the whole store! It was a matte finish {which I didn't know when I purchased it} but with a top coat it's perfectly shiny. I wholeheartedly recommend it. I wish all of my polishes dried in a minute--holy moly.

And finally, I hope all of you St. Louis friends check me out today on Great Day St. Louis at 10 a.m.! As always, I'll post the link as soon as it becomes available. Thanks for your support, guys. Oh, and you may just notice a new 'do on yours truly. I guess I thought it was the perfect time to bring the straight-across bang back. No joke. I'm rocking the same style I did in high school.

Enjoy your Thursday, friends.

xoxo

Hi Joi, I love that nail color. What brand is it? Color name? I need polishes that dry fast. : )

House of Scout said...

My thumb is like that, too. I've heard there's even a medical term for it, not that I would remember it. And yes, Meghan Fox does have thumbs like that also. Love the polish color!

Ches said...

I love the bright pink polish, I bet it would be pretty on toes as well. The saying is so very true, thanks for sharing.

We could be thumb twins. Happy to see another blogger (and yet another!) with the same *special* thumbs! Thanfully my husband thinks they're cute!

Oonafey said...

Ha! Everybody at works thinks I'm too happy all the time, too... Random people who don't even talk to each other have taken to calling me "Sunshine", which is funny cause I'm not sure I really think of myself as THAT cheerful.

I have that same polish from Nordstrom Rack in Schaumberg! I was so excited when I found it, it's the perfect obnoxious pink! Hehe

Sara @ Russet Street Reno said...

Too funny, I think your thumb is fine!! ha

Elle said...

So true- there is nothing wrong with being happy!
My staffy reminds me every day with her big smile :D

Hey Joi

Just watched Great Day online this morning. You were great and you really are rocking the bangs- very cute on you.
I love your kind of happy- makes others feel good. Some 'happy' people can be over the top but you are very geniune.
You had some great tips on the show- congrats on all the recognition you're getting.
