Not sure what happened I received e-mails and allowed comments to be published but seems some have disappeared. I want to take time and Thank each of you that did leave comments. I did read the e-mails. I appreciate each one and each tip that has been shared. Your all helpful and kind. Thank you all very much.
Quick Post been up all night catching up on season finales and doing my nails. Hubby was snoring makes it hard to sleep but a good time to watch shows. Because seriously he makes comments about the characters and I have to remind him it's a TV show so of course the characters make bad choices. Anyway, back to my post... I applied a base coat strengthener, ridge filler, 2 coats of Don't Mess With OPI and no top coat in pictures. Pics are taken inside and near a window in early morning hours. Nails are still recovering from the move and I am not done unpacking. I only just found my Sephora nail file last night after searching high and low and pouring thru boxes and make up bags. I really need to buy more glass files because having just one is not a good thing. I do love my glass nail file if you know what I mean. I like this green but it is calling for a stamp or some kind of nail art. Hope this post is coherent because I am tired.

Sam's Club between sub jobs. Her hands take a beating so we did some clipping, filing, soaking and cuticle removal. Started with a nail strengthener base, a coat of L.A.Colors Color Craze "Splash", quick dry seche, silver shatter and a top coat of seche. We have moved outside of the city now so it was an unexpected visit and if you ask me those are the best gifts my kids can give me! Yes teachers have Moms that call them by nicknames. Barb will always be my Boo Bear and my oldest will always be Pumpkin it is what it is, heh.

OPI Suzi Loves Cowboys. A wonderful chocolate color with high gloss. These pictures have no top coat added so you can see how glossy this polish is. Bottom of the bottle was messed up when I bought it. The display only had two bottles and both bottoms had green on them. My guess a bottle of polish busted during shipping.

Family recipe from my Mom no clue where she got it from. What I do know is that this was frequently on the menu when I was growing up and is a favorite of my Husbands and my kids.
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1 onion chopped
1 green pepper chopped ( I would add more if I had more but they are pricey around here)
1 clove of garlic minced
3 15oz cans of small red beans (I used black beans in this picture because it is what was in my pantry)
2 6oz cans of tomato paste
1-2 tablespoons of chili powder ( I put chili powder on table so peeps can add more if want and Hubby adds hot sauce)
1 tsp of cumin (optional but I like it so I use it)
In a large skillet brown beef, onion, pepper and garlic. Drain fat. Stir in rest of the ingredients. Simmer uncovered 30 min. Great with rice, crusty bread or cornbread. Also gets better the next day so good for a do ahead and pot lucks.
