"Girls DAY Out!

Several days ago I sent both of my daughters a text and asked them if they would like to join me Friday after work for a quick lunch and then on to the nail salon for a manicure and pedicure.  I had been blessed with 2 Gift Certificates to the same salon and I decided to share them with my 2 sweet girls!

We all got off from work around 1:00 p.m., so we decided to meet up at M@es for some Naked Burritos and  Taco Salads before our 1:45 p.m. appointments. After lunch, we walked a few doors down to the nail salon where I had previously made our appointments.

Since Grace was scheduled for a manicure AND a pedicure, she was the first one to be taken back for her appointment.

Faith was still busy trying to make her final decision on the perfect nail color before it was her turn to be seen. She only wanted a manicure since she had just gotten a pedicure last week and the nail tech had CUT her toe and it still had not healed! OUCH!!

Finally, I got to join Grace for an awesome hot foot bath, scrub and pedicure. I had forgotten just how good a pedicure feels! I could get used to THIS!
As an added bonus, the massage chairs were awesome in this salon.  It was massaging up and down my entire body.  I felt like I had to be  college graduate to operate the remote control, though!  Every time I thought I had the power would start back up with all sorts of gyrations! LOL

Faith got a hand and arm massage prior to her nails getting polished.  I must say that I LOVE this part of a manicure service, but for some strange reason...I have an allergic response to something they use and it causes my skin on my hands to peel off and be very painful for a few days following my massage, so I decided to just stick with the pedicure only this time.

By this time Grace had moved on to the drying cycle....

And very soon she was joined by her sister, Faith...

I had SO much fun spending time with my two sweet girls...we laughed so much and it was just fun to get a little pampering to start the weekend off right!

After the "Mani and Pedi" appointment, Grace and I headed to our next appointment....

Grace had her first fitting for her wedding gown.  We looked at shoes, jewelry, etc., but still have not made any final decisions.  Hopefully, she will make a decision about which shoes within the next month so that she can have her dress hemmed at the next fitting appointment.  April is going to be here BEFORE WE KNOW IT!  Her dress is so beautiful and just "looks like her"!  I know that she is going to be such a beautiful bride!

There are so many details yet to be decided....I'm starting to "panic" just a little as it's been a LONG time since I planned a wedding, but I know that very soon everything will start falling into place.

After we were done there, we headed to Jos. A. Banks to look at suits for the men in the wedding and finally home after a LONG, but fun day!

I spent the rest of the evening in my "jammies" with my hubby and this handsome fella"! ( :

How much fun!
I didn't know you guys had an upcoming wedding.
What beautiful girls you have.
I only have one daughter, but am SO glad God blessed me with one. I can truly say she's one of my very best friends.
Thanks for the comment on my blog. I'm heading to the site you sent me right now.
Thanks for sharing your day. I LOVE pictures too!

Rebecca Jo, you really MUST have a pedicure! I'm kinda funny about anybody touching my feet, too, 'cause mine are a little ticklish, but it is sooooo relaxing! They massage your calves and just the soak in the hot water is awesome! You need to treat yourself!

Jill, thank you for your sweet words and, YES...Faith did take my header picture! We were in Galax, VA a couple of months ago right after Faith got her new camera and she was using us for guinea pigs! I think she's a natural born photographer...she has a great eye!

What a fun, memory making day! I treat myself to a pedicure once a month because I have weird toenails that will get ingrown if I don't! It is always such a treat and I never take it for granted! Sounds like the wedding plans are coming together. Makes my heart beat fast just reading about it. A few years ago all three of my children married within 18 months of each other........enough said.

I recently had a pedicure - the first in a couple of years! I love it! I need to go more often because it truly is relaxing!

Thanks so much for treating us! It was a lot of fun. I love you!
