A day at the farm

Tunic: Target
Jeggings: Target
Flats: Target
Belt: Charlotte Russe

I didn't have to work today, so I took P to the Kelsey Creek Farm Park this morning, which I had never known had a farm until Andrea posted about it last week. The park is a million times better than the zoo because P was able to look at all the animals up close, it's only 15 minutes away from our house, AND it was free! It also helps that he knows the names to all the farm animals.

I felt kind of weird bringing a tripod to the the park, but P loves the self-timer so I decided to give it a try. His latest "thing" is pushing the camera shutter button then running to be in the frame. It's really cute! The picture-taking actually worked out a lot better than I had anticipated, so don't be surprised if P is in a lot more outfit pictures from now on.

In other news, I got my first Shellac gel manicure, and I think I'm hooked. I've never liked getting manicures or doing my nails that much because they chip less than two days later, and it's just not worth the time or money. I'm on day three of the Shellac now, and they still look perfect. I'll just have to see if they really do last the "three to four weeks" as advertised.

Bracelet: H&M, Ring: F21... and my belt looks super frayed. Time to look for a new one!

  1. Can't believe you never knew about it!  So fun, we love the playground because it is so safe for toddlers.  Your pictures turned out adorable.  Next time I am free on a wednesday we should go together!

  3. Fun trip!! Your boy is darling!  I love that he is so into pushing and posing!

    Shellac, huh? Sounds like something I would be interested in.  Keep us posted on when you start to see the wear!

  4. Awww P is such a cutie-pie! I think he takes after you in looks, but since I don't know what your husband look like, what do you think? Do strangers say he looks more like his mom or dad?

    Your manicure is gorgeous! The perfect color to a neutral outfit :)

  6. Your son is so cute! I love that last photo. I'm going to look into those manicures - I've given up on manis because they get ruined so quick!

  9.  Your little guy is so darn cute! I just love that picture of him by the tractor. Adorable!!  And I've got to say I really like everything about your outfit. My coworker gets the Shellac and raves about it all the time! I may try that since I'm usually pretty rough on my nails.

  10. First of all, P is awesome. The pose with his arms crossed? Perfect :)

    Second, I love the shellac manicure, too, but I think about two weeks is the limit, depending on how quickly your nails grow. I was still chip free, but the gap at the bottom of the nail bed was too big to ignore...

  11. I know! I guess I just always thought it was just another park. It just sucks that there's not much parking. 

    And yes! let me know if you're ever free on a Wednesday! :)

  12. Haha, people say he's a mix. I can't really tell who he looks like more, just a little of both of us!

  13.  Aw, Kelsey Creek is like, where I spent so much of my childhood! Haha! Love the nails too :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Yeah! I always thought they were super expensive so I never really looked into it, but I guess now they're available at more salons and cheaper. I went to one of those cheap salons with $10 manicures, and the gel manicures were $20, and Shellac (because it's name brand or whatever) was $25, so not bad at all!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yeah! I'm really rough on my nails too! The shellac is holding up well though! :) 

    ReplyDelete
  16. Oh, yeah, that's what I heard :( But two weeks chip-free is already good enough for me! :)

    I was doing the hands-on-hip pose and he was trying to copy me, it was so funny. Too bad I didn't get a good photo of that!

  17. Really?!! We are so close! I was more of a Robinswood girl :)

  18. He's so freaking cute! I especially like the last picture he's in. I'm pretty intrigued by the shellac nails. I don't have a lot of patience for nail polish either so I'm looking forward to hearing if it really lasts that long!

  19. Love the belt! And that ring is super fun and pretty.

    Little man is adorable!!

    Your nails look great. Keep us updated.

  20.  These are so cute!  I love P's expression on the pig-bench, he looks so excited to be there :)

  21. Awww, P is so cute. Especially love the one where he's sitting on the pig bench and posing in front of the tractor! And I also adore the color you chose for your nails. So on trend!

  22. Love the coral nails against the turquoise  ring. So pretty!

  23. aww, baby p! your nails look awesome - I've wanted to try shellac but i just...haven't. no excuse, i just haven't done it yet. you'll have to let us know how it holds up! 

    ReplyDelete
  24. Awww, P is so cute! You guys make for an adorable couple in outfit shots. :)

    And the gel manicure will totally last FOREVER. I got one and it lasted so long I got sick of the color before it even started chipping. It was murder to get that stuff off, though. But I'd do it again in a heartbeat!

    ReplyDelete
  25. oooh let me know how long the manicure lasts!  I somehow don't believe the 3 - 4 weeks thing, but keep me posted!

    Your little boy is A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Eeks, I want to squeeze him LOL! 

    ReplyDelete
  26. Haha, oh man, I had a horrible experience trying to remove those stick-on fake nails, I soaked them for an hour and they were still so difficult to get off. I learned my lesson and I'm going back to the salon to get the shellac removed. She said it's free!

    ReplyDelete
  27. You do beauty reviews and you haven't tried it yet?!! ;) hehe. From the comments I got, it seems like it DOES last that long, but then you get the ugly gap between the polish and your nails when it starts to grow out.

  28.  How cute! And your nails look amazing! I was actually just thinking about how I hate paying to get a manicure when my nails chip super quickly! I'll have to get my hands (or nails) on some of that shellac! ps. I love that ring!

  36. I *think* it's the tropix (
    http://www.cnd.com/Products/Color/shellac-colors.aspx) - I didn't really
    look that closely at the bottle when I was at the salon, but it looks the
    closest!

  38. I am loving your nail polish!!!  What a great color.  I need a new springy pinky pink like that.  It looks like you and baby boy had a great time.  He's such a little man, isn't he?
