Let's begin at the end. As some of you already know, I flew to Cleveland, Ohio last week to film a segment for Beads, Baubles and Jewels. What an adventure that turned out to be. Add snow storms to fun and meeting some incredible designers/women who were also on the show plus having to wear make-up and then not flub my lines. I would do it again in a heartbeat. One thing I've learned as I've aged is that I am up for just about any new (legal!) experience no matter how difficult or how much it makes my adrenalin sore. In this case, though, because of my six years of having to speak in public as a State Rep., I wasn't even nervous. I was more worried about the state of my nails. Let me explain that. My nails had been trimmed and buffed and the cuticles fixed. All was well with the nails. Until I decided to put nail polish on at the last minute in my hotel room and I did a really lousy job. I had no nail polish remover. I freaked out just a bit until I realized I could push most of it off with my nails and then remove the rest with an emery board. In the end, they looked fine. Not as good at the other women's nails who had the good sense to have theirs professionally done the day before the show.
Let me show you some pictures from that day:
