Mani Monday - Mariners Nails



The Mariners have been my favorite team since I was ten. Much to my Giants-loving dad's and my A's-loving hubby's chagrin. Don't get me wrong, I love both of those teams too ( I am a Bay Area girl through and through, after all) but the Mariners will always be my favorite. Last week (on 9/11) it was first responders day at the A's game, and Tony was amongst a group of firefighters who got to carry the flag onto the field. It was emotional, and touching and great.

All that being said, the A's were playing the Mariners so (of course) I gave myself a simple, little Mariner's mani. I used Julep colors, since Julep is based out of Seattle. (Silly, I know, but still...)

The blue is Paula - it has a hint of gold shimmer and it's gorgeous! And the teal dot is Amy.


What are you rocking this week?? Do you change up your nails for sporting events?

Three Things


1. In case you missed it on instagram - I met Gavin Degraw. I repeat, I MET GAVIN DEGRAW. He is one of my favorite artists - I even wrote a post about how one if his songs instantly takes me back. I big pink puffy heart him. My friend and I saw him in concert on Monday night and got dinner before the show. Gavin popped his head into the room we were eating in, and my jaw dropped. He left and my jaw was still on the floor, but he came right back and started chatting with us. He was so gracious and sweet, and it was an awesome experience. I'm still reeling. Just wish I would have made a normal face when we took that picture! 

2. This article by Stacy London. Really interesting perspective on gender roles in aging.

3. This hilarious account of some guy's first week at Target. Read it for a good laugh!

What are YOUR three things this week??
