Mahna Mahna

Family lore goes that while my mom was pregnant with me she & my dad went to the theaters to see one of the Muppet movies. As they had no children with them, they got some strange looks but tried to pass it off as if they were preparing for me.

In truth they really, really loved the Muppets.

Some kids grow up on Disney. I grew up on Jim Henson.

I saw the Disney movies, of course, but never had the princess obsession like I had Kermit obsession.

I’ve seen every movie (well, except for the space one they came out with a few years ago), & every Christmas make my family sit through The Muppets Christmas Carol.  I cried as a child when Jim Henson died. I own the dvd’s of The Muppet Show.

So needless to say I’m pretty excited to take my parents & (drag) my husband to the new Muppet movie this Thanksgiving.

To prepare I may need to buy a few of these OPI nail polishes.

I may end up buying them all but here are some early favorites:

Rainbow Connection

Divine Swine

Gettin Miss Piggy with It

{Clearly I’m into glitter for the holiday season!}

Pepe’s Purple Passion

Bonus points if you knew that this was Pepe:

I mean, how could you not want his nail polish?!

There’s also the Muppets Green Album with current artists redoing some classic Muppet songs. You need something to listen to on the way to the movie theater, right?

Seriously, I’m beyond excited.
