Friday List Stuff

Jansen had his 4 month appointment yesterday. Do the math. He’s almost 5 months. What does that mean? I’m a terrible mother and forgot to make his appointment at 4 months. Forgot. But all went well. He’s in the 50th percentile in both weight and length. He is 15 lbs. 15 ozs. and he’s 25.75″ long. He was so great the whole time but then he screamed bloody murder when the nurse gave him his shots. It was sad but I looked at him and said, “Buck up! It’s for your own good, kid.” (Totally kidding, I would never say that. But, really, it is for his own good.) He was sleepy the rest of the day but not very crabby. When I took off his bandaids last night, one of his legs had a pretty big bruise on it. Poor kiddo!!

Okay earlier this week I showed you my manicure and told you how professional the Seche Vite Top Coat looked. It seriously dried so quick and shiny. I was anxious to see how long it would last. Well y’all, I think it’s better than a professional manicure. Check it out. The first picture is how it looked on Sunday, the second is how it looked last night.

Besides the fact that the first photo is quite a bit closer and my ring finger has a new scar in the second photo (compliments of an incident with the pan when I was cutting a Totino’s pizza), they look pretty much the same. There is a bit of chipping on my middle finger but that’s my fault. I nicked it with the fingernail clippers when I was doing some maintenance on a cuticle hangy thing. (I am the queen of too much information…)

So my review? Amazing product. It was easy to use and dried quickly. I can’t give you an accurate set time but I do know that I slammed my finger in a Rubbermaid that same evening and there wasn’t even a tiny imprint. That would never happen with any other polish. And seriously, a shiny and professional looking finish even 4 days later? This is better than a professional manicure. You can buy the Seche Vite Top Coat at Ulta (I saw it on sale for $4.99 but it was sold out) or at Sally’s Beauty Supply (I think I bought it for $8.99 but it also came with a bottle of China Glaze). So yeah, buy it. I’m a believer!

So many YouTube videos! I hope you’ve enjoyed them and found some new ones. My sister is now obsessed with Marcel the Shell, so thank you to those of you who recommended that one. Pretty funny!

It got me thinking about life before YouTube. My freshman year in college we were obsessed with a video and I think we saw it originally on College Humor or something like that. I tracked it down. As with most videos, it gets funnier the more you watch it. You’re welcome.


Happy weekend, y’all.
