Strange...but I like it!!

So, everyone probably has something strange they like. Now I am not talking a strange food combo, or strange music or anything like that....I am taking a strange beauty product that you just cannot help but like. Well mine is.....dark dark nailpolish. The stuff that looks like you are wearing black-but if you look closer you can really tell you are wearing a dark purple or brown. Currently as I type this my nails are a dark dark purple...more maroon. I cannot help but staring at my nails all the time. Now, maybe I like them because they are so not something I would wear. (I usually have a french done on my nails:) ) Or maybe because the contrast is so startling due to my pale skin. Who knows-but I love them. It might be like having an alter ego that comes out in forms of my nails.

Going along with that-and maybe even encouraged by that...the other day I did a smokey eye. Not just a little black eyeliner smudge...I mean the whole nine yards!! I strangly loved it-but knew I had not the guts to bring it out in society yet. Then...guess what happened. Three of my friends (Erin, Jessica, and Kate) all came over. I did not have time to wipe it off...and there I was...still wearing my sweatpants and gym shirt with a smokey eye. I felt foolish at first-but they affirmed me that it was not so strange and actually was rather a nice look. I (sadly) did wash it off before Nate saw-but I promised him I would do it again soon. (Somehow I feel like he will really like it-but I could be wrong) I like this new world of branching out and trying things that are not really "me". Maybe it is the pregnancy getting to me-and I need something new an different because my body is doing a zillion new and different things every day!! (I am 32 weeks at this point for those that aren't tracking my growth;)) Anyway-share with me some strange things you love...and look out because I just might try them too!!

I've totally been into the black nail polish lately - so out of character for me! I love it though. I'm sure I have more but I can't think of anything! I miss you blogging more often but I'm sure you're a very busy mommy!!! Love you Abs.
