Jamberry Review

Jamberry nailsJamberry nails look awesome. For the uninitiated, they are stick-on nails with fabulous patterns. The holiday ones are my favorite.

However, there are some mild drawbacks to wearing these fantastically eye-catching nails.

For instance, you should plan on not washing your hair at all during the two week Jamberry nail wearing time frame, unless of course you like ripping out your hair in the shower as strands get caught underneath the gooey goodness of Jamberry nail stickers.

Also, you should either plan to not eat for two weeks or infect all of your food with the salmonella that gets stuck underneath your Jamberry fingernails from the eggs you cracked while making pumpkin chocolate chip muffins for your Thanksgiving potluck.

Jamberry festiveAnd lastly, you should definitely plan to catch every disease carried by the small children you lead in the church kids’ ministry, because there’s no way those goobers or snot bubbles are leaving the safe confines of your Jamberry nails’ stickiness.

In summary, Jamberry nails look awesome. And they will look awesome for the entirety of the last two weeks of your life before you implode from the inability to do anything remotely productive while wearing them.

Flynn Found Me

Instant MessageAaaaah! Guess who sent me an Instant Message at work today?!?!

You guessed it. Flynn!!!

I was good and didn’t initiate. I let him come to me, and come to me he did.

Flynn opened with, “Howdy!”, which fits his charming country character perfectly. After we made small talk for a few minutes, he invited me to his church’s Thanksgiving potluck dinner tonight. I, of course, said I would love to be there (along with my famous pumpkin chocolate chip muffins)! Then he asked if I had lunch plans. Wow – double-whammy. I already had a lunch meeting planned, but we agreed to meet for lunch next week before leaving for the Thanksgiving holidays.

We managed to chat for about twenty minutes before I excused myself for a business meeting. Our witty conversation was more fun than I’ve had in a long time. I laughed out loud on multiple occasions, and I’m pretty sure I was smiling the entire twenty minutes (and for about twenty minutes afterward). My coworkers probably all think I’m crazy, laughing out loud seemingly to myself, all alone in my cubicle. Ha. I’m sure it’s not the first time they’ve thought I was crazy!

As fun as Flynn is, I’m trying to be wise about this situation. I’m trying to enjoy the attention and flirtation while guarding my heart and having no expectations about a future because, as much as I enjoy Flynn’s company, he is someone else’s boyfriend. And I’m not a boyfriend stealer. And that “someone else” has been pretty clear that she expects to be a fiance soon. And I’m definitely not a fiance stealer. I’ve had my heart broken too many times to do that to someone else.

And besides: If he’ll do it for you, girls… he’ll do it to you. You better believe it.
