Magnolia Depot Days

I went to Magnolia on Saturday with my Jamberry Team Manager, Carin Ponder, for the Magnolia Depot Days.  We had a booth at the festival and even though we had a good chance of rain all day, we actually only got a few drops, so it was a nice day.

We offered Free Shipping as we usually do at our booths and, as always, we have the Buy 3, Get 1 Free special.  We usually have a drawing for an application kit and a sheet of wraps, so if you see us anywhere, be sure to stop by.  Be sure to follow my Facebook Page, Niecy's Nails, to see where I will be next or contact me and we can set up an in-home or online party and you can earn free product.

Don't forget about Mother's Day!


They had a silent auction going on and I got the winning bid on a nice big cinch bag from Thirty-one.  With all the bags I have, I'm a walking advertisement for them. As it normally happens, I usually end up spending more money at other booths and such than I make, but I was after contacts as much as the sales themselves.

My manicure for this show was Happy Go Lucky and Aquamarine (retired now).  It was 9 days old at the time of the show.

Getting My House In Order

I'll be the first one to confess that I am NOT the world's best housekeeper. I have been a single mom of my 18-year old "baby" since he was just a couple of months old and it hasn't always been easy. As a matter of fact, I think the toddler was more tidy than the teenager. He has a habit of opening cabinets and not closing them, dropping things on the floor wherever he happens to be, leaving items on the counter and so on. After lots of arguments and not making much headway, I decided to pick my battles and let him do his thing in his own room. Then a few things made their way to the living room and little by little, you get used to things being out. And yes, I got lazy and didn't feel like messing with it.  Then one day I looked around and thought that if someone happened to pop in unannounced, I would be totally embarrassed. So, something had to give.

There are as many methods of cleaning and decluttering as there are ways to make a mess.  I have looked thro…

Rideshare in B/CS

It's official!  I'm now also a driver for Uber. Here's hoping the two programs overlap nicely.

My Referral Code is denisev472ue and you can get a 1st rider discount or a bonus for signing up as a driver using my code.

I am driving in the Brazos Valley - Brazos and Burleson Counties.

I'm a MCT!

My certificate finally came in the mail!  I actually feel like a Microsoft Certified Trainer now.


This certification took several years, lots of exams and quite a bit of money.  I had to have the Master level Microsoft Office Specialist certification for versions 2007, 2010 and 2013.  Each certification level was made up of 4 or more exams and half of them being Expert level exams. The exams were around $100 each just for the voucher.  Each exam was almost an hour long and for the last version, I had to travel an hour and a half to Austin or Houston as our local Certiport testing center in College Station no longer proctors the exams.

I think any major goal takes a lot of effort to make you appreciate it all the more.  If it was easy, it wouldn't be special.

I have actually had the Master MOS since the 2003 version. Lots of buttons and functions have been added, or more than likely, moved around and renamed. I have always been "into" the Microsoft Office suite of product…
