I'm Back

As promised, here I am back to blogging after my time away, which I can now reveal that I spent vacationing with Mr. Karen in California. This trip was to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary by returning to the region where we'd spent our honeymoon so many years ago—more years than some of you reading this have been alive, I know! Here I am on my wedding day back in 1986:



I've got a lot of catching up to do (this is the first day I've sat down at a computer since October 14th) so no nail stuff today, but I do have this picture I took at one of the stops on our vacation, Disney California Adventure theme park, where we took in the World of Color show (that park wasn't even built back in 1986):



Looking at my backlog of nail photos, which isn't too big right now since I used so many while I was doing those treatment-only weeks, I think I might get to my vacation nail news by the end of this week, so stay tuned!

  41. Thanks for all the congratulations and compliments, everyone!

    Tee Dee, maybe next year I'll share a scan of my rehearsal dinner outfit, 'cause that's definitely got a dated 80s thing going on. :)

    dameliac nails, I do remember my wedding day nail polish! It was L'Oreal Rose Delicat, a sheer pale pinky peach shimmer. I still have a half-full bottle of it in my stash.

    Maria, I think Mr. Karen would have pitched a fit if I'd said I wanted to go nail polish shopping on this trip. :)
