{things i love: opi nail polish + texas + u.s. army}

March 26, 2011

I couldn't help but post this tonight because it brought an immediate smile to my face for so many reasons...
I happened to stumble upon this news while visiting the fabulous k blog, and I was thrilled to see that two of my loves have merged to make magic!

OPI Nail Polish + Texas = Love & Perfection!
{perfect combo}
OPI is my all-time, favorite nail polish {those clever color names have always made me smile, and I have secretly wished they would hire me to join their creative crew} ;), and Texas will always hold a special place in my heart {I used to call San Antonio home} so I was all smiles when I saw this Texas Collection!

For those of you who don't know, I'm the proud daughter of a Retired U.S. ARMY Lieutenant Colonel and my Daddy, Peter A. Leventis, will forever be my hero for serving and protecting our great country for 21 years.

I really can't even describe in words the respect, admiration, and love that I have for my dad, and there is not a day that goes by that I don't think about our Army days and all the brave, valiant, and honorable efforts and sacrifices he made for our family and our country.  I'm so thankful for the amazing childhood I was given as an "Army Brat" {I loved every minute of it}, and I feel blessed every day of my life to have had the opportunity to live in so my wonderful places all over the United States.  I loved my childhood years that were spent living on the Ft. Sam Houston Military Base in San Antonio, TX, and every memory that I have of our time there is so perfect and special.

Whenever I see or hear anything having to do with Texas, those great memories come rushing back to me and that's exactly what happened when I caught a glimpse of the OPI Texas Collection...Doesn't take much to spark those cherished childhood memories for me, and I'm glad I got to reminisce with a little trip down memory lane.

Even though I have already busted out my traditional spring OPI polish {cajun shrimp is my go-to color}, you better believe I'll be making a trip to the store tomorrow for a sentimental bottle of San Tan-Tonio!!  I never thought nail polish would bring back so many fun thoughts! :)  I'm thankful it did, and I'm going display my little bottle of Texas bliss proudly in honor of my Army roots!

I hope you enjoy the OPI collections as much as I do, and I can't wait to hear about your favorite color!
