Hello Spring Break! This St. Patty’s week is chalked full of fun activities to keep the kids and I busy. We’ve got plans to make piñatas, assemble a 750 piece puzzle, determine an UNO champion, visit the Science Museum, read A Wrinkle In Time before seeing the movie, and cap it off with my favorite … a day at the zoo. Luckily Arizona has welcomed the beautiful spring weather so there will be lots of time for good old fashioned outdoor fun as well.
No Spring Break is complete without some special treats too! So since it’s St. Patty’s week why not make some Lucky Charms Treats. This has pretty much become a tradition in my house when it comes to the lucky holiday. My daughter has been reminded me for weeks that St. Patrick’s day is coming and how we can’t forget to make these special treats. There are an oh so yummy twist on the traditional Rice Krispies Treats. You can check out the recipe we use over on the Soulfully Made Blog.
As I geared up for all the mentioned fun, taking a few minutes to pamper myself was a must. It’s been forever since I gave myself a manicure and I’ve been dying to try out the Avon Gel Finish 7-in-1 Nail Enamel that was included with the Savanah Blooms Beauty Collection. The makeup included in the collection is perfect for channeling all things spring and I expected the same from the Clover nail polish.
I decided to not over complicate today’s mani with lots of themed nail art. Not really because I didn’t want to, but because who really knew how much time I really had to slap some nail polish one and make my nails look presentable with three kids at home. The Avon Gel Finish 7-in-1 Nail Enamel in Clover is a beautiful green, without being too green.
Here’s hoping the color will bring me luck as I embark on an ambitious list of Spring Break activities. If nothing else it will prevent the St. Patrick’s Day pinch, that’s for sure.
I love mani Monday’s — as you can tell by my recent blogs. I laugh at myself because I always intend to post more and I have brilliant blog topics dance through my head when I am in the shower. I promise to start writing more. I do love sharing.
For now I would love to hear more about what your Spring Break plans include and/or what your favorite St. Patrick’s Day traditions are. I will be celebrating by sporting my mani while drinking a beer and enjoying some corn beef and cabbage. Because, after all, once I make it to St. Patty’s day I will be able to toast to a successful Spring Break full of fun and memories.
