Random Sunday Blogging II

I just realized from last week's random blogging that I forgot to talk about the ginger dressing I made which was FANTASTIC! I combined a couple of recipes online to make a spectacular recipe...however I did not measure so I have no idea what amounts I used.

minced garlic
grated fresh ginger root (about an inch off the root)
1/2 cup olive oil
1/3 cup rice vinegar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 a lemon juiced

I'm estimating what I used. I'll have to make it again and give more accurate measurements. Its a a tough job but someone has to do it! It was so good though, I had it over some butter lettuce, which is my favorite lettuce.

On another Random note, I bought the Soprano's Season 1 & 2 and I'm loving it. Maybe I love it because I am living in New Jersey and everyone...or at least almost everyone has the same accent they have in this TV series.


Random 3....And also football started this weekend. Go SF 49ers! I have moved away from California but I can't stop being a Niner fan. However I've picked up some football teams on my travels, like the Steelers, which I became a fan of when I lived in Pittsburgh for 4 years in college. And now I'm in Giants/Jets territory....Go big Blue/Green...haha

Today is a cleaning day and I don't wanna! I'm just chilling here sipping on my coffee and watching Rocky watching whatever he's watching out the window...

Watching the watchers... That's the a good name for a book....right? How many ellipses can I use in one sentence?

Have a good day dreaming out the window.............. :)

Painting My Nails

I started realizing how expensive it was to go get my nails done. They do such a great job, but they paint only stays on my nails for 2 days before it starts chipping. I'm not a huge fan of acrylics and the new lacquer polish is nice, but that gets expensive too. I've also always wanted long nails...but I've come to realize it is just NOT in the cards (or is it stars) for me. I've started buying myself polishes that way I can still make my short nails pretty.

My newest purchase was 2 more Butter London's. I don't know why I like this brand I just do. Maybe it's the packaging, or maybe I'm just coo-coo for anything British.

These two lovely ladies are Rosie Lee (Left) and Macbeth (Right)

Macbeth for me is just a classic color and I love it, it's not too red and it's not too least for my lighter skin complexion.

I'm still a little on the fence about the Rosie Lee, I love the color, but I'm not sure about the sparkliness of it. I tried it this week and I couldn't find my topcoat to put on top, which would smooth out the top. I haven't tried to use nail polish remover yet to see how easily it comes off, but I know using the sparkle nail polish is more difficult to remove.

Have I talked enough about Nail Polish?? :)

I'm really not reviewing this, this is just what I like and what I'm into at the moment.

I can't wait for fall, I love the darker colors of fall and I'm really interested in getting a pumpkin color for know to go along with my Pumpkin Spiced Lattes. Yum!

My Californianess is craving the coastal fog. I need a cool day! :)
