+ Wanton Wednesday +

{1} Last night J and I watched "Killers" with Katherine Heigl and Ashton Kutcher.  I really enjoyed it =) It was fun and entertaining...albeit highly unrealistic BUT like I said it was entertaining. The story line doesn't drag on for days, the whole movie is about an hour and a half.  I like Kutcher in roles like this where he isn't playing a complete idiot.  Actually this movie kind of gave me a little celeb-crush on him!  I think Heigl looks gorgeous the entire movie and I think she's funny. 

{2} Tonight I am going with my sister, mom and one of the other bridesmaids to check out a few more bridesmaid dresses ... the ones I showed you in Monday's post. I hope we can have it narrowed down and I am keeping my fingers crossed that we can pick the shoes also (the ones from Monday are my choice lol) BUT Jess IS the bride so obviously we will wear whatever makes her happy =)

{3} I am highly looking forward to this coming weekend.  That's right -- it's the 1/2 marathon, my VERY FIRST!! I am so excited and nervous.  I hope I don't psych myself out!  Thankfully I have my girls to go with me and push me through it.   We are driving out Saturday; the race is out of town on Sunday, so we are staying the night before.  It's going to be a mini-girls weekend! WOO!!

{4} We have decided after going to the Expo, that we are going to go see Harry Potter!! I am SO EXCITED! Maybe not as excited as others, but I have high hopes for this one. I read all the books and since then I have been seeing the movies.  Not always in theatre because, let's be real, some theatre people get crazy AND it really bothers me when I go to the movies and people talk/text/etc.  Just because texting is silent doesn't mean the screen light doesn't bother me A LOT!

{5} J is driving out Sunday to cheer me on.  I told him he doesn't have to be at the race when it starts at 7 (he'd have to leave the house no later than 5!) but to make sure he is at the finish line.  If I know him, he wants to surprise me some where along the course.  If not, that's OK, I completely understand PLUS he doesn't really get the whole running long distances for no reason thing. 

{6} Does anyone else feel sexier when their nails are painted??  There is something about looking down at my peep toe shoes and seeing a pop of color staring up at me.  I just LOVE it!  When I paint my fingernails, I feel so polished (unintended pun) and, not proper, but feminine, I suppose.  I feel like my entire look is complete when I wear nail polish.

{7} I really want to buy a new color.  I have lots of pinks and reds and I was daring once and bought purple.  Sometimes I want black, but I just don't think I can pull that off. Any color suggestions or favorites??

{8}Most of you know, I am a Steelers fan.  I was at the very first game the kicker, Jeff Reed played in Jacksonville against the Jags.  He has had a rough go this season and Tuesday, he was waived from the team.  I was very sad to hear the news but I can see why the coaches/owners made the decision. Bye, bye Jeff Reed, Hello Shaun Suisham -- who was actually originally on the roster in 2005.  Fingers crossed that he does well -- he IS kinda cute though!  I will miss you, Jeff Reed!!
I think that's all I've got for now, my week hasn't been overly exciting and I am just trying to stay focused for this weekend.  Happy Half-way-through-the-week!

I love Katherine Heigl!! I love having a french manicure on my (gel) nails. (I can't grow my nails for the life of me). Sometimes I switch it up with colored tips!

best color this fall: OPI in "You Don't Know Jacques"'s a beige/brown/taupe color that looks FAB on short nails !!!

i love deep burgundies and gray-purples for fall nail polish. and yes, i definitely feel sexier with nicely painted nails and toes : )

Kelly said...

I really like OPI's new Boris & Natasha. It's a dark purple that I've been loving on my fingers AND toes for the past 3 manicures. :)

I think I was born with my nails painted haha It's a necessity!! I LOVE deep purples and reds for the season...let me know if you want to try any colors--I have three tackleboxes full of polish...and then some! I maybe don't know if I'd be brave enough to do black--I stick with the dark purples :) If I don't buy a new color once every few weeks I get the itch..haha
Hope BM dress shopping turned out well!!
Also, I am VERY jealous that you are seeing Potter this weekend...It looks like it's going to be amazing! I love the series!!

good luck with BM dress shopping and the run! for nail polish, i wear purple/eggplant & lipstick red in fall/winter, and colorful or sheer colors in summer.

Nicole said...

Yeah the theater crowds, esp with movies like Harry Potter get WEIRD!!! I always keep my toenails polished or I feel naked... LOL. a couple years ago I lost my big toenail so I had to go all summer with plain toenails. It was awful!
