Jamberry Nail Wrap Party + Giveaway!

Happy 4th of July!  As I am waiting for Spangenbaby to make his appearance I thought it’d be fun to mix it up a bit and have a little partyA Jamberry Nail Wrap Party + Giveaway!  How does that sound?!

Confession:  I am not a nail person.  I bite mine (horrible habit I know), I pick at the skin on the sides of my nails, and my nails just plain break and are hard to grow!  HOWEVER…those lovely prenatal vitamins and pregnancy hormones have my nails looking and feeling fabulous so I had to jump on the Jamberry bandwagon and I am so happy I did!  I am a believer!  I hate painting my nails because 1.  I suck at anything left handed and 2.  They chip and peel so fast!


My friend hosted a Facebook Party and I started out slow…of all the awesome selections of nail wraps…I chose BASEBALL ones!  (I bought these myself, I was not given any!)  Ha….it only figures I am having my THIRD BOY!  OK so I chose Curve Ball and Red Sparkle.  At least I added some glitter right!?  I was so impressed!  I offered to host my own party and I am inviting you!

Jamberry Nail Wraps 1

Want to know how they work?  They are really easy to apply.  I did it in a matter of minutes!

  1. I trimmed and shaped my nails
  2. I wiped down my nails with rubbing alcohol
  3. I matched the size of the Jamberry with my nail and cut the wrap in half
  4. I heated the Jamberry with my hair dryer and then smoothed it out on my nail pressing  firmly
  5. I trimmed the wrap and used a file to shape to my nail.
  6. I used a little orange stick to make sure all the edges were securely adhered to my nails.

They lasted more than 2 weeks!  Here is a picture of them on week 1 and week 2.5.  They still look fabulous you can just see my nail growth!

34 Weeks + Freshly Picked Moccs Giveaway

As you are all mostly aware…#3 is on his way in July.  Spangenbaby, as I refer to him now (because he has no real name yet!) is a true labor of love.  We waited a long time for him to decide to take up camp in my belly.

Blue Confetti

I took for granted how easily Michael and Ryan came to be ours.  It was a rocky road to get to #3, but he is 34 weeks along and likes to pretend he is a ninja in my belly working to break his way free!  He likes to hold dance parties in utero at early morning hours (a throw back to my college days I am sure) and he prefers to eat strawberries all the live long day.  He does NOT like to be squished, so all those maternity shorts that go over the belly…he’s not having any part of that!  Nor does he like when his big brother Ryan decides my belly is the perfect pillow!  He opens up with his own rendition of a number from River Dance to annoy is big brother enough that he moves to a real pillow.

He also demands sno-cones (shaved ice).  Like all the time. <—I may or may not also partially pass my wants for these off as his wants but I am sure he is okay with this agreement we have as long as I keep putting strawberries on everything!  I mean, I have been neglecting sushi and booze for some time for this kid…he can certainly take one for the team and agree to me blaming him for wanting shaved ice!

7 months sober

I also feel like he should be celebrated more.  I talked about that here when I threw a Gender Reveal Party for Spangenbaby.  Why does only the first kid get a party? (shower).  Why then do you only get a sprinkle (I think that’s what they are calling it these days) if you are having an opposite sex baby?  Why can’t we celebrate ALL babies with a party?  I am going to start something here my friends!   You just wait and see!

Sweet Susan of Freshly Picked is helping me celebrate this little guy!  Do you know Susan?  Did you watch her on Shark Tank?  That’s right, she totally dominated Shark Tank and I have had the privilege of actually hanging out with her in real life at some blogging conferences this past year.  She is kind of awesome!  If you don’t know her you might want to meander on over to Freshly-Picked.com and check out these amazingly adorable moccasins she makes for your little’s feet!   (Psst…also check out her brand new line of FABULOUS Bags!)
