Friday I'm in Love!

Yay for Friday!  This week has been busy, but also full of things that I'm lovin':


1. The Orange Cadbury Creme Egg


No more talk about this obsession because I am trying, desperately, to overcome it.  Moving on.

2. Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips
Peep my nails:


Excuse a) the bad picture and b) the marker on my hands (we were making posters for our event in class).  But check out how cute my little fishnet nails are!  This is the second time I've used Sally Hansen Nail Polish Strips and they seriously do last about a week.  It's incredible.  I'm smitten.

3. This Baby's Face


I know yammering on and on about babies can be tiresome, but this baby, Jude Freitag, is otherworldly.  I babysit him and his big brother (whom I also adore) every Thursday, and Jude pretty much smiles at me like this the entire afternoon.  He's unlike any other.  

4. Casey Abrams


American Idol makes me realize I'm a little snotty about music.  I totally turn my nose up when contestants choose lame-o songs to sing (eh-hem, Pia, Thia, and Stefano).  Which is why my heart swelled so big when Casey did me proud again by picking CCR last week.  How rad was he with his stand up bass?  I love this guy.  Possibly even more than I loved Andrew Garcia . . . which is sayin' a lot.  I voted my thumbs off on Wednesday night for this dude.  And speaking of American Idol, can y'all believe Pia got sent home?  The most attractive contestant in the history of this show?  With some bangin' vocals?  Crazy.

5. That Which Gets Me through the Week


Happy Friday everyone.  Hope the weekend's fun!  Now tell me what you're loving this week . . .

I saw those Sally Hansen nail things at CVS and was curious! I must try!

Pia was boring...end of story. She was beautiful and sang wonderful but didn't bring anything new to the table..unlike Casey! =) IMO.

Happy Friday! =) Enjoy!

Ashley said...

drollgirl said...

the nail strips are awesome, I have those same ones! I've bought 3 different types and trim them individually to make each set last for as many times as possible. And it is amazing how long they last. Normal nail polish, one day tops before chips, this stuff lasts and lasts.

I think I am the only person in the world who doesn't like Cadbury Eggs...I know...I'm weird lol!

And your nails - freakin' awesome! I have to go buy those stat!

As far as AI, I can't get into it this year. I am not loving anybody. :/

Annie Cristina said...

I've been dying to try those nail strips. They're too cute! And yum, Cadbury eggs... I think I just gained weight thinking of them.

danielle and dinosaur toes said...

claire, i'm currently obsessed with cool mint oreos. and you want to know the crazy thing? i don't even like chocolate! it's insane, and i'm hoping we can both kick our current sweet, sugary addictions!

second, I LOVE YOUR NAILS!!!!!

i'm gonna have to try me some of that nail polish... but first i need a mani. these fingers of mine are a disaster, i don't even know how to repair them myself.

this week i've been lovin' the smiles i get from little r.

Meghan said...

Oh girl, those nails are amazing! LOVE!

Micaela said...

i was SHOCKED when they said Pia's name!!! crazy!!!! i thought for sure it was going to be stefano!

i'm really loving haley's voice these days but i have been a fan of casey's from the start. his rendition of elton's "your song" was amazing, i had to re-wind it to see it again.

i LOVE me some chocolate but the weird thing is, not with any kind of sweet/fruit filing.

your nails always look amazing and baby baby baby jude is ALWAYS a face to love!

xoxoxo

Krystal said...

I so have been wanting to try those strips but I haven't seen them here! I hope you are doing well!

Melissa: Write it in Lipstick said...

Your nails look awesome I keep hearing talks about Salon Effect. I need to stop being cheap and get some.

♥Write it in Lipstick♥

Lori said...

Okay I have never tried those cadbury eggs, but my husband loves them.
Casey = AWESOME!
That baby's face... omg way too cute :)

And I love your nails!

Crazy Shenanigans-JMO said...

I've always wondered how those nail strips were! Can I just say, Stefano needs to go home! He comes off to me as a cheesy, phony guy who would be at a piano bar.

Kara said...

Dude we are so jiving with our American Idol picks. I remember that you loved Andrew Garcia and so did I...and guess who my favorite is this year?!?! CASEY. He was wicked good at that standup bass. Yes.

Also, I'm loving the nail effects too - I have the houndstooth pattern on my fingers and toes and today in the middle of a crisis call, this super overwhelmed dad looked at me and went "your nails looks REALLY cool". Um, awesome.

Krystal said...

haha financial lockdown, funny!! (i probably need to consider that too:))

Gracie said...

What there are orange Cadbury Creme egg?! Oh my I will have to look for these. I think it will be love.

Your nails look awesome. I've always wanted to try more fancy things with my nails.

That sweet baby face. He looks adorable!! x

yours truly dear said...

easter candy is my demise! haha. also, your nails look adorable! i have been wondering about those and i'm glad to see they actually work. now i need to go to walmart! :)

Leesh said...

I need to try those nail strips. I always read about them and then when I go to the drug store, I forget to check them out.

The little Jude dude is adorable. He's the one who loves Tim Riggins right?

sheba said...

i do NOT like creme eggs at all, but e does and would love an orange one!

i DO like your nails. a lot.

babies that are that cute can be on your blog as much as you want.

Poppies and Sunshine said...

Oh my, I LOVE Cadbury's chocolate! And this time of year, their candy is extra good :)

I love this list! I, also find Casey Abrams AMAZING! He's one talented dude! :).

P.S. I'm your Post Card Swap Partner! :)

Meredith said...

Okay, saw the Sally Hansen things at the store and totally scoffed, might have even said aloud, "There's no way those things work." Clearly going to have to to try some now!

Holly said...

your nails are the cuteness!!

Marz said...

Those nail strips are all the rage with my girlfriends right now :) I hardly ever paint my nails (weird right? Toenails always, but hardly my nails) so I have yet to try them, but your sexy fishnet nails might have convinced me! :) Super cute!

Ummm I LOVE Stefano! I think he is TOO adorable! I feel so badly that he's always in the bottom and that so many people were shocked and surprised when Casey was voted off (lucky save!!) and then Pia and poor Stefano got so much crap with so many people saying it should have been him. I love him :) That being said, I was still SUPER shocked Pia was voted off! CRAZY! I love Casey too though, he did SOOOOOO good last week :) Love it!

McKayJoice said...

WAIT! what? how did you do that to your nails? a marker? so so cool.

Faiza said...

umm...am so behind on blog reading. so can i be in love on a wednesday? please?

happy day friend. i would say that pictures of jude are always always well received. more please!

i am one of those people who hasn't been able to get into dark chocolate or the orange/chocolate combo. but milk chocolate with caramel and nuts or peanut butter makes me so happy!

have been seeing those nail strips a lot lately. may have to try them out...

J. said...

I used the very same fishnet nail strips on my nails before I started using shellac on my nails (it's my newest obsession!) I do love those handy strips- I'm thinking about trying them on my toes this summer.
LOVE our Idol reviews- I won't get to watch until tomorrow, so you're going to have to go first this week! :)
