NOTD: Sally Hansen Fuchsia Power Hard as Nails X-treme Wear Nail Color

Sally Hansen Fuchsia Power

Sally Hansen Fuchsia Power

I picked this up the other day at Target for just under $3. The color is gorgeous for the summer. I applied 2 coats and a clear top coat. The formula is very thick and creamy.. I thought it was going to take forever to dry, but It dried fairly quick. Not too crazy about the thickness, but it makes for a very opaque nail with two coats. You definitely wouldn't need three coats.. and you can maybe pull off even one. I actually took the photo today and did my nails 3 days ago.. no chips or nicks yet! Hope I didn't just jinx myself.. :)

George is on TV!

During our Vegas trip, George played in the World Series of Poker & made it to the featured table.. which typically has a few well known poker players and there is a live announcer specifically for the table and the cameras (ESPN) are rolling the whole time.

So, the WSOP 2010 is finally being aired.. and I'm going to my BFF's house to watch it!

This was me on the phone telling her to put her TV channel on ESPN and watch it till I get there to make sure I don't miss anything.. LOL

Luckily, I didn't miss anything...
I took a picture of the TV.. Me & my friends were SO excited to see him!! He's on the far left.

Update: I captured tons of screen shots.. here are a couple.

Weekend in Downtown Chi + Sprinkles Cupcakes!! (Pic Heavy)

Me and George decided to spend the day downtown together and get some cupcakes! Sprinkles cupcakes are our absolute favorite and when we heard that one was opening in the Summer of 2010.. we were ecstatic!

Here are some photos I took from the day..
Some views of the city streets..

 My makeup had all melted off by this time..

Sprinkles! There was a bit of a line.. but we only had to wait 15 mins or so.. which wasn't bad at all!!

We bought a 1/2 dozen. Top L to R: Peanut Butter Chocolate, Milk Chocolate, Red Velvet
Bottom L to R: Black & White, Milk Chocolate & Vanilla Milk Chocolate. I love the Vanilla Milk Chocolate and the Peanut Butter Chocolate. Soo yummy!!

After Sprinkles, we went to Greek Islands for lunch/dinner. (Yes we totally did dessert first)
I had lamb. I don't really like lamb.. but I have a taste for it a couple times a year.

 We decided to take a little drive to the lake to relax and sit by the rocks..

He was staring at the dragonflies flying over his head LOL.. They were literally all over the place. You'd literally get smacked in the face by one while you were walking. Plus, there were TONS of mosquitoes.. so we decided to take a rain check and just go home..

The mosquitoes this summer are the WORST they have ever been!!! I barely ever want to go outside! :(

How's the weather treating you?? Hope you all had a great weekend!!

A Day at Brookfield Zoo with George! (Pic Heavy)

George and I decided to go to the Zoo Sunday.. It was his first time (and my second) going to Brookfield. We had a really fun time and couldn't wait to go again in the future! I took TONS of pictures.. but mainly of the animals. I won't bore you with too many photos of animals.. but I thought I'd share a few.

Here's me and George by the pond. I was not this tan at all! It was extremely sunny and for some reason I came out orange in this picture. :( It would of been cute if It wasn't for the weird lighting.

I told him to pose. LOL

George really liked watching the wild dogs.. I think I got a pretty cool shot of this little guy..

The giraffes were so adorable..

We spent a while watching the monkeys.. they were very entertaining.

I couldn't stop laughing at the sloth. I couldn't believe how slow they actually move! This little guy was totally in slow motion.

Another one of me with terrible lighting..

And the petting zoo!
George was teasing these little coons with goat food.. Poor things. I told him to stop.. 

George was teasing the ducks too.. you can tell the one in the left pic was pissed! LOL

This picture makes me laugh.. I walked over to find George talking to this goat and he had his front legs perked up on the fence to get closer to him. 

 George feeding the goats..

 Me feeding the goats..

Lol, he took a real liking to this little goat..

Well, that's pretty much it! What'd you do this past weekend!? Anything fun???
