Kind of messy but I love the color combo. Colors used Sally hansen’s xtreme wear “mint sorbet” and “strobe light” over sinful colors’ “easy going”. #nails #nailstagram #instanails #sinfulcolors #sallyhansen #xtremewear

Sitting outside in Indiana with pat by my side, reading strangers in paradise and getting a backrub. Not a cloud in the sky, and sunshine everywhere. This is my favorite day. #comic #strangersinparadise #sip #terrymoore #indiana #boyfriend

Guuuuuys!

I weighed myself this morning for the first time since maybe mid February. I was certain that I gained 15 pounds from being so unhealthy but it looks like I gained about 8. I am still under 150 and that makes me happy! And now I am aware of what I am just to see what I will lose from eating healthy for a few weeks, I’m excited!
