Mirmosa?

HELLO FELLOW FOLLWERS!!

IT'S FREEDOM FRIDAY AND I'M TAKING SOME FREEDOM AND LIBERTY WITH MY NAIL PICS TODAY.

AS MANY OF YOU KNOW I AM PART OF A PROUD AND LONG SERVING MILITARY FAMILY.  MY HUSBAND AND I BOTH RETIRED FROM THE NAVY AND ARMY RESPECTIVELY AND OUR SON IS PRESENTLY SERVING OVERSEAS WITH THE AIRFORCE.

BEING WITH THE MILITARY AFFORDS YOU THE FREEDOM AND LIBERTY OF TRAVEL TO SOME GREAT (AND SOME NOT SO GREAT) PLACES OVERSEAS.

WELL, ONE THING I KNOW FOR SURE - A MIMOSA (PLAY ON SPELLING, I KNOW) IS ORANGE - NOT WINE COLORED!!  EVERY COUNTRY I HAVE EVER VISITED THAT I HAVE ENJOYED THE CITRUS TASTE OF THIS DRINK HAS BEEN AN ORANGE HUE!! *hiccup* (A MIMOSA IS A DRINK MADE OF ORANGE JUICE AND CHAMPAGNE) *hiccup*
SO IT LEADS ME THINK WAS THIS MIMOSA MADE WITH BLOOD ORANGES AND NOT PURE ORANGE JUICE?  (IS IT JUST ME OR HAVE YOU ALL NOTICED THAT SINCE THE WEATHER HAS BEEN NICE I HAVE BEEN HAVING MORE REFERENCES TO ORANGES IN MY POSTS!)  *WAVES HI TO RMC IN FLORIDA*
(dont know why me camera and photshop program keeps flipping me pics upside down)

ANYWHO - THIS POLISH WAS SENT TO ME AS A FREEBIE FROM A CP (CUSTOMER PURCHASE)  I DO LOVE THE COLOR- BUT I AM NOT FAMILIAR WITH THE BRAND.  I THINK IT MAY BE A SALON BRAND?  I VAGUELY REMEMBER BACK IN THE DAY OF YESTERYEAR WHEN I USED TO WEAR ACRYLICS ((SHUDDERS AND APOLOGIZES TO MY NAILS)) SEEING THIS BRAND IN THE SALON THAT I USED TO FREQUENT - BUT I COULD BE WRONG. 
SHE NEEDED THREE COATS BECAUSE SHE WAS A LITTLE STREAKY - AND I WORE HER AS FULL MANI TODAY AND NOT JUST AS A SWATCH - BUT SHE WILL BE COMING OFF THIS EVENING - BECAUSE SHE BUBBELED ON ME!!  I DON'T KNOW IF IT WAS ENVIRONMENTAL OR OPERATOR MALFUNCTION - BUT I DO KNOW THE ONLY THING I LIKE BUBBLES IN ARE MY BATHS AND MIMOSAS -  NOT NAIL POLISH!!
 
ANYWHO - HERE IS WHERE MY FREEDOM FRIDAY COMES INTO PLAY - HERE ARE TWO PIECES THAT WERE BROUGHT BACK FROM JAPAN!!  THE VASE IN WHICH I AM TOUCHING IS OVER 6 FEET TALL AND 2.5 FEET IN GIRTH - SHE'S HUGE!!  SHE HAS A LITTLE SISTER TOO!  THEY WERE A SET OF TWINS, BUT ONE WAS BROKEN DURING THE  MOVE.  I DIGRESS. 
 
THEN HERE IS A PARASOL THAT IS USED IN OUR FOYER FOR DECORATION - SHE'S REALLY DAINTY AND DECORATIVE AND SITS ON THE FLOOR IN THE CORNER.  USING THE MACRO WOULD HAVE BROUGHT ME IN CLOSER - BUT THEN YOU WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO SEE THE PRETTY LITTLE JAY BIRD!!
 
SO, I SAY ALL OF THAT TO SAY - I THANK YOU!!  I THANK YOU ALL FOR ALLOWING MY FAMILY THE PRIVILEGE AND THE OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE SERVED YOU WITH OUR COUNTRY SO PROUDLY AND BE ABLE TO HAVE BLOGS AND VOICE OUR OPINIONS, LIKES AND DISLIKES AND DRINK MIMOSAS WHENEVER THE SPIRIT MOVES US.

I HAVE BEEN TO COUNTRIES WHERE SUCH LUXURIES ARE LIMITED AND LIBERTIES SUCH AS THESE ARE GRANTED TO THE WEALTHY AND THE PRIVILEDGED.

SO AGAIN - I SAY THANK YOU FOR WELCOMING ME INTO YOUR LIVES WITH MY LITTLE BLOG AND ALLOWING ME THE FREEDOM TO BE ME AND HAVING DONE BUT A LITTLE PART OF ALLOWING YOU TO BE YOU, AND DO THE THINGS YOU LOVE!!

HAVE A FUN FILLED WEEKEND!!

UNITL NEXT TIME....HAPPY POLISHING!!

DON'T BE A GHOST....LEAVE ME A POST!!

  4. @ Scandelous - Thanks!! The military is very close to my heart and Im passionate about it - I feel its the least I can do to give me to what has been offered to me and my family to allow you and yours to do the same.

    @ ABOP - really? well, I don't forsee me going on any dusty hunting for this name brand because of the bubbling aspect. But it wore well for the time I did have it on. Thanks!!
