The day I got my one second of fame on national TV

Don't blink or you will miss me.

While we were in NY sitting in a park near Wall Street, a news reporter picked us out of the crowd and asked us if he could interview us about what we thought of Romney's comment about the 47%.
Of course we said he could.

We are the first people he interviewed in the video. That would be the husband speaking. Apparently my ughhh, ughhh, ughhh response when he asked me the question was not good enough for him. Yes I made the cutting room floor.  I was nervous at first. At least you can see me sitting there.  I will take it.

While I was in NY I also got a manicure and a pedicure. I finally did a dark color. It felt like a very NY thing to do.

So I am going to link up with Tara and Vicki for the Nail Files.

Essie "Stylenomics"

I have been dying to try this color. It looks black but it is a very deep green (my favorite color).
I went on the hunt for the color after I had my manicure and I found it at a drug store. I needed to get it anyway because I smudged a finger. I am very particular about that. I had to fix the smudge. I also bought Essie's "Good to Go" quick drying topcoat and I really like it.

I had them cut down my nails so that I wouldn't look like a witch. Its wasn't the best manicure. She didn't go over the free edge which helps prevent chipping. I have gone over them since I have been home and I still have the same color on. I have a feeling I will be wearing this color a lot through fall and winter.

Have a great weekend!
