Mani Monday: Paprika

Dear Readers (mostly my supportive husband and mother-in-law),

I am sorry that I have been so remiss in posting to my blog. I even forgot to post pictures of my back-to-school sweater. I am very sorry. Please find it in your hearts to forgive me. I know you will because I have some awesome fall sweaters that I plan on wearing ASAP.

Now, let’s move forward together. It is Mani Monday, and I have a beautiful coral to share with you. It’s Paprika by OPI. In the bottle, it looks quite reddish. In the warmth of incandescent lights it looks more orangey. However, in direct sunlight it is almost neon. It’s quite a stunning shade. It was on clearance for a buck in the Ulta clearance section, and I’m glad I “splurged” on it.

I would really like to start my own nail polish line so that I could name the colors. Should I start a Kickstarter to make it happen? Actually, Kickstarter takes a big percentage of the money given, so forget that. You can just hand me the cash directly. As Sally Brown once said in a letter to Santa, “Make it easier on yourself. Just send money. How about tens and twenties?”

Weekend Watchlist: Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays. My husband and I take turns being in charge of it every year because it’s really not fair to make the men do all the work (just like women shouldn’t have to do all the housework). I have planned a whole weekend of fun for him, but I can’t tell you about it because he reads my blog. He might even be my only reader this weekend.

Anyway, here are my picks for this weekend:

If you missed it yesterday, you can still watch Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown online here (if you are a cable subscriber). I’m really bummed that all of the Charlie Brown specials are no longer on Netflix, but I guess it was a really good strategy for ABC.

If you want a little less romance and a little more laughter, I know the perfect show for you. Whether you’re a cynical singleton or a hopeless romantic, you can never go wrong with the SNL Valentine’s Day special. It’s on NBC tonight at 10:00. Also, don’t forget to watch/DVR the 40th anniversary special tomorrow night. I’m so excited for it that I almost wish Valentine’s day was over. (Almost.)

I saved the best for last. This might be a shameless plug since my husband was the lead editor on this movie, but Old Fashioned is a realistic look at how hard it is to date (specifically for those who are Christians). The cinematography is beautiful, and the music is great. (I would say something about the editing, but you know I’m biased). Check it out at your local movie theater.

I hope you’re having a great Valentine’s Day. I ate so much chocolate that I gave myself a stomach ache.
