Random Tuesday.....Is it spring yet???

I know it is only January 24th, but I am ready for spring!!  Sigh!  Just saying.....!  Snow is slowly melting and sun has been shining most I am hopeful!! 

Saturday night was the annual Holiday Party for John's company.  We dressed to the nines and off we went.  My son, Lee and his wife were attending as well. And they brought our third oldest granddaughter,Emma!  It was so great to be able to spend some time with them.  John sang Karaoke and Emma danced!!   It was a fun evening!  Here are some must forgive to the party and pulled out my camera.  Took the first pic and camera spoke to me.  Battery exhausted!!  Ack!!  You have got to be kidding!!  Dam!!  So had to use my phone and therefore, pics aren't that great!  Sorry.....

Remember, a few weeks back...I got the idea to create a shoe hanging storage area in my bedroom!?  Well, we finished it up and I have some photos of the new area....

Ta Da!!!!!!
Simple but effective shoe storage!  I definitely love me my shoes!!!  Now I can see some of them and they are not all over the floor!!

This week I am doing Valentine decor...will keep you posted!!  I have some garland I purchased from ETSY and it is adorable.  So I can't wait to get started!!

I have a terrible head cold this week!!  Feeling yucky for sure.  Stuffy, runny nose...scratchy throat....fever...the typical stuff.  Went to the party and a couple of martinis were the best medicine ever!!  Ha!!  Still, we came home early and I went to bed.  So much for being a party queen!  Feeling somewhat better today...sigh!  I hate colds!!  It ranks right up there with snow and high winds!!  Yuck!!

Got the nails and toes done this week and they looked party ready!!!

Don, the nail tech did a wonderful job!! My normal tech, Jessica, is out on maternity leave.  She had a 6lb. 8oz. baby girl!!!  Woot!!  Mother and baby are doing great!!  Jessica's mother is here for six months from Vietnam.  So she has plenty of help!!  But I  miss her that is for sure!!

Oh!  By the way!  Dr. John brought this head cold home from the office.  Thank you Dr. John!!!  NOT!!!

Well, I am going back to bed.  This cold is dragging me down.  Work in progress photos will be posted on Thursday.  It is looking good if I do say so myself!  Ha!! 

And now for the advertisement... go and visit Stacy at Stacy Uncorked to see what the other Randomizers are up too!!  One just never knows where any of us will go!!  Ha!!  Also, go and nudge Keely of The is high time she return to Random Tuesday...I mean she was the Queen!!! 

So good of you all to visit!!!  Have a magical and blessed day!!
Hugging you

It's certainly feeling like spring around here. If this keeps up we won't really have had winter at all. Not that I'm complaining mind you. but it does seem too early. I'd like to keep summer at bay a little longer. Hope you feel better soon.

Good idea that shoe storage. Looks good & is practical.
Hope Spring is just round the corner.

Nuts in May

No, it isn't spring yet ;-( But I'll focus on the bright red of your nails and pretend that it is.

LOVE the shoe storage - I'm going to have to steal that idea and do that for Princess Nagger's shoes since I've passed on my love of shoes to her (and buy too many for her and me) and she leaves them lying all over the floor. :)

Bummer your camera battery died on you at the start of the party, thank goodness for your phone! :) Looks like a fun time!

LOVE your nails!!

We've sort of been having spring like weather. Minimal snow, but then it melts quickly!

Nadine Hightower said...

Love the nails!! And that's where part of my shoe collection is, behind the bedroom door.

Queenie Jeannie said...

Boo, to colds!

Friko said...

Sorry about your cold, hope it's on the way out. Take care of yourself and stay away from parties for a week or so.

Love your shoe hanging arrangement. I

Nezzy said...

Great idea on hangin' the shoes and gettin' 'em eye level and off the floor! Kudos to you.

Looks like ya'll know how to have a great time at a party! So much fun!

Take care of yourself sweetie, grab some chicken soup, a warm blankie and a good book. Good medicine I tell ya!

God bless and have a wonderful day!!!
