So, yeah, my birthday was a month ago.....But wanna see what my awesome husband got me?!?

Isn’t it beauuuuuuuuutiful? Oh, you're not sure what it is? Well....neither was I at first....
I opened it around 11:30pm, and when I got the paper off, all I saw was a plain cardboard box with some stamp about Poland. I was confused, but trying to act grateful, so I kept smiling. Only when I got it open did I realize that the carton actually said “polish”. As in nail polish....not like from the country of Poland. I was worried for a minute he got me sausage. But confusion aside, and ignoring the late hour, I insisted we set it up. It holds 50 bottles, which seemed like an astronomical amount.

About ten minutes later, after rearranging color groups in every possible configuration I realized we had one of two problems. I have too many bottles of polish....or too few holders. (I think you know which part I blame...) But I love it all the same. It’s a big step up from the old system (which was throwing them all in a plastic bucket). Look at them all....I'm practically a professional now!

Oh- and because he loves me lots...he actually added to the overcrowding, giving me this little beauty:

Yeah- those are real gold flecks. Mmm-hmmm.
Well done, Dus.


  1. nice...I will have to show this to the girls when they get home - they will be in awe!

  2. See megan? You need to bring those girls for a visit! my house is just a party all the time! :)

  3. Ok, missy...

    What do you really do for a living?

    My guesses are the following:

    1.) professional party planner
    2.) kept woman who paints her nails a lot
    3.) pre-school teacher (I don't know why but it seems like you'd be good with little kids and crafts)
    4.) consultant?

    I wonder if the answer is written in the archives somewhere. I'm going to have to set aside some serious stalking time.(Not as creepy as it sounds.)

  4. Happy- you are too funny!
    I am actually none of those things....Although I wish I was #1 or #4. And I REALLY wish I was #2! (my husband might say I sort of am....)

    I don’t really write much about what I do (that’ll save you some archive stalking...but feel free to root around in there anyway!)- but I work for a national retailer, designing store windows and displays. I love it lots....which is why I almost never talk about it- gotta draw that professional line!
