Some mid-winter cheer

The past few days in Chicago have either been snowy and frigid or dreary and soggy. And apparently the weather events of today will encompass all four of these lovely descriptors.

So last weekend I decided to take some advice from Matchbook and paint my nails pink for some mid-winter cheer. Check out the picture above – pretty cheery right?

Other cheer-inducing aspects of that picture (taken on Sunday night) include my Golden Globes viewing drink-of-choice: a delicious vodka tonic (keep in mind that I did not have to work the next day).
