Anybody Want a Book?

The kids and I recently started using a new book for devotions.  As a result, I have two books just sitting around my house…unused.

We only went through about half of the Total Devotion book.  We stopped using it because it is geared toward younger children, and my children were beyond the lessons.

We thoroughly enjoyed Daily Grace for Teens.

Both books are in terrific condition.  The only thing I did was write the dates that we read each devotion at the top of each page.  That was to help me keep my place.

The books are free for the taking…first-come, first-served.  The only thing I ask is that you pay the shipping, which can be done media mail to save the most money.

It’s a small investment with big dividends…time with your children learning life-lessons.

If interested, just post a comment, and I’ll send you an email.

I’m a Sucker for Pretty Colors

What is it about me and pretty colors?

Take a look…

AuburnChicks Nail Polish Collection

AuburnChick's Nail Polish Collection

I don’t know why, but every time I go to the drug store, I tend to gravitate toward the nail polish.

Is it the pretty colors?

I think it’s the colorful names:  Chapel of Love, Purple Crush, Violet Vision, Swizzle Stick, Moonlit Madness, Senorita Rose-Alita, Coney Island Cotton Candy, and my newest, purchased today – Iced Spice.

I also have favorite brands…OPI is #1 in my book.

I think my love of nail polish goes back to my luxiourous days as a full-time stay-at-home mom.  My one indulgence (other than staying home to raise the kids) was  a standing date with my nail technician.  I had acrylics in those days and loved to try new colors.  Being cheap (and poor), I couldn’t afford a pedicure very often.  But, being anal, I wanted to match my toes to my fingers, so I wound up buying the polish so I could paint them myself.

Hence, my love for OPI and Essie which, by the way, Target began selling not too long ago.

Woo Hoo!

Nowadays, I rarely paint my fingernails, but my toes are always colored up.  Today I’m sporting the Iced Spice (a Revlon color) I bought when I ran out to get a prescription:
