Peanut: 7 Months (and 8 days...)

Peanut turned 7 months old last Monday... 7 months! What happened to the tiny little peanut I brought home in October? She's growing way too fast... Her 4th tooth is coming in... she rolls all over the place, and she's literally minutes from figuring out how to crawl. She's one active little girl, and it's getting more difficult to capture the cuteness.

Take last week, for example.

I had her in a really cute onesie. In my defense, it was an 80ish degree day, and it totally FELT like summer. The bow on the back is adorable, so I was trying to snap a picture of her being a little turtle, showing off the bow. That just wasn't happening.

Hi, mommy!

What do you mean, turn over?

This book is yummy.

Pretty Bow!

One thing I've learned in the past 7 months and 8 days of parenting this little Peanut... It's totally her show. If she doesn't want to do it, she's not going to. She's got stubborn in her genes, but I love that about her. She's particular, and that's something we celebrate at Chez Sparkle.

So when I get random poses like this... 

Peanut = Fabulous!

1,2,3... WIGGLE!

you just sort of learn to go with it...

I have a foot...

You don't want to see my foot?

but... it's my Foot!!!

strapping me in will achieve nothing, I tell you. NOTHING!


What is this smile you speak of?

I have another foot...

Hahahaha... Foot!

and eventually, you'll get one of these... <3

I'm so funny!!! Wait a minute I forgot my foot... MULLIGAN!!!


Are you still here?!?

We are done here.

Most of the time, she's cooperative for the camera, and if she's not... well, we just strap her in, and that works. For now. Sometimes. When she wants it to. The more mobile she gets, the more independent she wants to be.

You can't stop me!

I'm on my way...

If I could just...

My head is so heavy...

Can't you just...

help me out a little?

pwease Mommy?

I'll eat all my veggies, I promise!

What do you mean, not a veggie?!?

Yep. What can I say? She's a stinker, but she's MY little stinker. We've had a lot of fun together over the past 7 months... Not quite sure what I did to deserve such a sweet little girl, but I'm SOOOOO thankful for my little Peanutty Buddy. Love Her, LOVE HER, LURVE HER!!!

filling up her snugglemeter while I can... <3

BTDubbs... This is my first time linking up with anyone, so I'm hoping that I've done it correctly... :)


  1. Is there really anything better than a baby in black and white? How sweet! Thank you so much for linking up!

  2. Thanks! I really enjoy reading your blog... :)

SinfulColors Mauve On Seriotype

Whether you call it a seriotype or smooshy... (I prefer seriotype) there is just something about this style of manicure that I can't get enough of.  Polishes Used:  1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Out Ridge Filler 3 Coats SinfulColors Mauve On Essie Leggy Legend Pahlish Autumn People Pure Ice Get in Line 1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat 1 Coat Seche Vite Hey there! It's been a little while, hasn't it? Sorry about that. Life happens, you know? Oddly enough, I didn't stop painting my nails during my hiatus. I kept taking pictures for a while, and then that just sort of stopped to. Weird how some habits die hard, while others don't change a bit.  Anyhoo... I found pictures of this mani in my files and couldn't believe I didn't share it! This was one of my favorite polishes last spring, and I recreated this exact seriotype/ a few times.  This mani started out with 3 fresh coats of Mauve On. I typically wrap my tips on the 2nd c

Fishbowl Friday 073 // Recreation

Every now and then, I enjoy looking back over past manicures. Creatively, it's just neat to see how far I've come since the days I started. Oddly enough, when I chose this prompt, I knew exactly which manicure I wanted to recreate. Based loosely on Fishbowl Friday 027 , today's seriotype nails are a RECREATION ...  Polishes Used: 1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler 3 Coats China Glaze Violet Vibes Essie Leggy Legend Pahlish Autumn People Pure Ice Get in Line SinfulShine Konstellation 2 Coats SinfulColors Clear Coat 1 Coat Seche Vite Looking back, I can honestly say that my seriotype game has come far since I first learned the method. One of the things that took me a while to master was the balance of nail polish finishes. While seriotypes made exclusively with creme polishes look cool, those made with a combination of different finishes really pop. There's more depth involved when you layer a metallic over a jelly neon and

12 MoC: Merry Marsala

Since the announcement of Pantone's Color of the Year 2015, I've been on the hunt for Marsala in polish form. You might think this would be a simple task, but it's actually been quite difficult, and I'm still not 100% there. But this polish is thee best match (and deal) I've found so far. I give you Haze of Love... Polishes Used: 1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler 4 Coats Wet N Wild Haze of Love 1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat 1 Coat Seche Vite   Marsala is an earthy red with an almost equal blend of red and brown. It's a super versatile shade, and depending on what you pair it with, it can lean towards either color. It's a rich shade, but not overly dark, and a little dusty. In all honesty, Haze of Love is a decent enough match, but it could still stand to be muted down a little bit. It's just the slightest bit too dark, now that I look at the graphics and my nail photos so closely together. But how many people are going to put
