Store Field Trip: five Below

 Happy Tuesday! I am still savoring this change in weather and although I am a very cold natured person; walking out my door to cooler crisp weather feels so much better than the triple digit heat we must bear every summer.


Anywho, I just wanted to share with you all a store I just discovered and that recently opened here in Austin (well in my neck of the woods). I stumbled upon it a couple of weeks ago. five Below. Catchy name, huh?

Fun side note: In high school, my hubby was chosen as football athletic scholar from our high school and was invited to attend a banquet where he got to meet and take a picture with the great Tom Landry.  A very proud and exciting moment for him.  :)

Okay on to the girlie part of this post.  Because we are true blue fans I thought I would have some fun with my nails for game day.  Now, all of the crazy and fun nail art I have seen lately is pretty neat but it's not quite my style.  I'll do a flower on my big toe when I get pedicures or something like that but I've never done anything else.  But something about all this nail art these days got me wanting to do a little something and this is what I c…
