The Nail Files: The Color Red

Although, it's snowing outside and the temperature's really low, there's nothing like having pretty nails. So, in preparation for Valentine's Day, I opted for a shade of red gel polish on my nails for this week's manicure.  I'm definitely looking forward to spring and summer, warmer weather and brighter colors.

Wordless Wednesday: Utah's Hogle Zoo

My two boys are huge fans of animals, so when we're on vacation and get a chance to visit an aquarium or zoo their excited.  While visiting Utah over New Year's, we got a chance to visit the Utah's Hogle Zoo.  Here some photos of our visit to the zoo...

The Nail Files: Pretty in Pink

I thought I'd do something different with my nails, so I had acrylic nails put on before my New Year's. I'm anxious to see how long I keep them on, but so far I really like them.  For this week, I chose a pink gel polish because I really liked the color, and I know the gel polish will stay on longer.

Wordless Wednesday: Our drive around Utah

For New Year's, my family and I got a chance to spend a week in Utah for the first time.  Of course, while there we did a little snowboarding and skiing, but we also got a chance to do a little sightseeing.  
Here's a few Instagram photos of my scenic drive around Utah.
