Frozen Butt

You all know I'm in New York hanging with the fam.  Well, my 6 year old niece made me promise to play in the snow with her.  Of course, she didn't have to beg too hard since I love snow and it's been years since I went out and played in it.

She decided for today's nails that she would try her press on nails.  I did not take pictures of that, but they were cute with snowflakes, polar bears and penguins.  Several hours later, she had picked them off.

It snowed all night here and it's still snowing now.  I have not been out to see just how much has fallen, but the news is saying anywhere from 8-12 inches with 5-8 inches more to fall today.  It is snowing out there now. I tried to take a picture of the falling snow out the window, but this is all I got.

This is what it looks like out the window to my right as we speak.  Picture heavy snow falling since it's not showing up on my picture!

My niece and I went outside after I put on layers and layers with snowpants, hat and double socks and gloves.  Behind my parents house is the golf course.  We grabbed the sled and headed through the backyard to sled.  Once we got to the third green, I was tired!  I looked down the way to where we used to walk to for sledding on the tenth green back when I was growing up.  I couldn't believe how far away it looked.  It made me wonder how we got that far just to sled!  Oh but the tenth green was the bomb for sledding.

We sledded for an hour and a half!  It was fun!  It has been a VERY long time since I did that.  We are talking over 25 years.  We sat frontwards and backwards and lying down. Besides the fact that I am not young like she is, I started to realize I was getting very worn out and for some reason could not feel my butt.  The snow had penetrated through the layers down to my undies and my butt was literally frozen wet.  I had to tell my niece it was time to go in.  I'm surprised I even made it an hour and a half!  The rest of the day was shot because I was so tired, but oh how much fun was had.  I did not take pictures, because I didn't want my camera to get ruined.

My butt has now recovered so here is your silly bottle shot for today.

This is Bettina Purple and OPI Eiffel for this color.  I started with Eiffel and an accent of Purple.  Here is that step.

In reality, Eiffel is a gorgeous deep purple with shimmer.  I next stamped with plate DRK-C and the opposite color.  Here is that step.

Pretty cool so far right?  Next I just did my funky.  Here are the results.

This is a purple passion mani!  I'm so glad I got to go sledding-I have a lot of great sledding memories from growing up and it was fun to act like a kid again.

Have you ever had a frozen butt?  It's not something I recommend!

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
