Pedicures Cure Everything, Right?

So after writing a very whiney post yesterday, I am happy to report that today is all rainbows and sunshine.

Yesterday, my girlfriends and I ate at a local Mexican food joint for lunch and finished off the afternoon with pedicures and shopping.

I think I can honestly say I haven't had a pedicure in at least 2 years.

A long time, right? On one hand, I like being pampered and chatting and just relaxing.

On the other hand, I think I've given myself a better pedicure at home. Of course, that could be because we visited the local "chop shop" instead of a fancy salon. (FYI, my cousin and I coined the term chop shop because basically the nail techs might or might not chop your toes to bits depending on their mood that day...).

After the pedicures, we headed to our favorite haunt, TJ Maxx and then hit up a few stores at the mall.

Shockingly, I bought nothing at TJ but did get a pair of cute shorts at American Eagle.

Normally, I wouldn't even go into AE but I'm glad I did - these shorts were only $15!

We finished off our afternoon at Target, where I bought a cute white top but can't find a pic of it, so I'll just have to wear it and take a pic sometime.

Well, it's 8:12 AM and I've already accomplished a solid 1/2 of my To-Do list today. Yay Wednesday!!

Have a good one!

I rarely get my nails done either since I feel the same way you do--that I can usually do it just as well myself at home. Tonight was a case in point. I had a 20 year old manicurist who had been on the job four months. Not impressed. I usually have better luck at the Asian places!


pedicures are my weakness in life!!! :)

I love pedicures, if you like being massaged you should try foot reflexology as well :)
