The Battle Begins

You all know that I bite my fingernails like crazy. This drives many people nuts. My dad use to always say," did you not get enough to eat." My sister Susan thinks it is the nasty thing ever. Reiggin hates the fact I bite my nails also. I have also been wanting to grow my nails out a little longer so I can paint them. Sunday, Reiggin dared me to grow my nails out long. The bet is that I have to grow my nails out a good length. If I do this then I get to pick out a purse of my choice to buy. I have been dying to buy a new purse off of Etsy. I am hoping to be successful in this bet, but I have tried many times in the past to grow my nails. I think it is a combination of nervous habit and just me needing to be doing something with my hands at all times that makes me bite my nails. It has only been three days since the bet as started and already I feel myself wanting to bite my nails. You will laugh, but I will catch myself with my finger in my mouth and I have to slap myself and say no. I am determined to get a new purse. Wish me luck and I will keep you updated on my progress.

So go to the pet store and buy Bitter Green Apple spray and spray it on your nails! Apparently it tastes gross (at least Rayne thinks so) and can't hurt you if you do stick them in your mouth......sounds crazy but I'm thinking thinking outside the box on this one to help you win the bet!!! Or Brentt said to just paint your nails then that will taste gross too. :) GOOD LUCK!!!
