for my birthday this year (which was in june) i received a gift certificate for a pedicure. i was pumped. i figured i would use it before i was going to be showing off the feet somewhere. well, november rolled around and since i will be showing off my feet somewhere this weekend (details to come later on that whole ball of fun) i figured it was time. i dusted off the certificate and made my appointment.
tonight was the night (to cross it off the list).
jess did an awesome job. i got a nice bright red on the toes (festive i thought) and even walked out with a pair of foamy sandals so i wouldn't have to put my beautiful feet in my shoes (which would have totally ruined the paint job). i get home and they are still beautiful. driving my husband's work truck home didn't do a thing to tarnish them. :) i thought they looked so great, i took a picture of them to share with you. the quality is not the greatest as i was in tucker's bedroom, but hey, i do what i can.
fast forward to an hour after this picture was taken. 721PM to be exact. i am getting tucker ready for bed. getting his pj's on and whatnot. i'm kneeling down in his room. well, when you kneel, your toes point downward and make contact with the floor. huh. i was like, 'no worries - they've been done for an hour'. I WAS WRONG. i get up and look at my toes (because i had been like every five minutes since i got home) and they are NOT shiny anymore. in fact, they have 'carpet marks' on them. no fuzz was stuck on them, but they looked like your knees look after you kneel on the carpet when you are wearing shorts - you know what i'm talking about right? yeah, suck.
i mean, at first glance, they look fine. i'm sure nobody will even notice, but i KNOW. what else COULD possibly happen this week? DARE i even ask?
who knew i'd get this much of a post out of getting a pedicure. seriously.
