I know, I know, where in the the world has Heather been?

We'll get to that later - promise.

But for now... it's camping weekend! Camping + the beach = happy Heather. Our little church decided to take a camping trip and it was just the motivation we needed to acquire camping supplies! We've wanted them since we've been married, but never could justify just outright buying stuff. Enter Facebook selling/trading groups! Thanks to one that I'm a part of, we were able to get all this stuff for under $150!

S C O R E !

We got a 6 person tent, two nice camping chairs with trays, a cooler, 3 lanterns, camping stove, croquet set,  and an outside game set! Best day ever!

My longest childhood friend found her lobster.

And they got married last Saturday, July 5th.

It was wonderful!

Our infamous picture. When we were munchkin size.

On each other's wedding days : ) Aww.

Reenacting. Because it's tradition. 

Anyone who knows Kelsey has also been waiting to see "the dress. I have distinct memories of her drawing and designing wedding dresses when we were younger, so I knew she was going to have an awesome, one-of-a-kind dress. And she did. It was perfect.

[The following photos are stolen from the photographer - check her out - we went to high school with her and her work is amazing!]

Mr. & Mrs. Wilbanks. Ugh. So cute. 

Kelsey and Joe, sittin' in a tree...

I bought myself a shellac kit for my birthday.

Love it.

Worth it.

I am so hard on my hands at my job that this is my only chance for nails that won't crack and break!

I got my kit at Walgreens, on sale, so it was an awesome deal! It even comes with a color to start out with.

My first shellac!

I've definitely gotten better - it can be really tricky when you first start because you cannot get any on your cuticle/skin or there it will stay!

For your viewing pleasure...

tried doing just tips! 

The current nail craze happening is well... crazy! People have no limits on what the can and will do to their nails!

What do you like?

The bare nail?
One classic color?
The accent nail?
Glitter mania?
Jewels and 3D art?
Crazy detailed designs?
Or do you give up and just bite them off? ; )
