Just Nice

OK...uterus, shmooterus. Let's move on, shall we?


Two very nice things happened today! First, a sweet, sweet bloggy friend gave me a blog award!



Now I need to drum up my 15 winners and pass out their awards...alas...another day. But THANK YOU Adeye!!!! You should definitely check out her blog! She is an amazing God-filled woman with some pretty amazing children!

The second great thing was that for the second (maybe third) time in my life, I got a pedicure! My sister, nieces, my girlies and I loaded up and went to a local beauty school (think hard working, but oh-so-affordable students!) to get pedis done! I took the girls and my sister was gracious enough to keep an eye on them while they got their nails and toes painted too!

I gave up all control and let them pick their own color. YIKES! Laney chose blue...sparkly blue. WOW. And Abby chose purple...a dark rich purple....until the nail tech decided she needed white tips, french manicure style. YUCK! She loves them though, so I'm keeping my opinion to myself and praying they "chip" so much I have to repaint them soon. At least their toes are adorable in those fun colors! Me? I chose a plain french manicure for the piggies. LOVE it.


Here's Abby. She's ultra serious about this manicure business!


The guy that did the pedi was so great! I was a bit nervous at first, but oh man...my nerves melted right away...it felt SO good! I could have fallen right asleep! It was an hour of massaging, kneading, and painting...all for $10. Yes, you read that right! Support those local beauty schools! They need the clients and the practice, and I need the affordable pampering!!!

It's blurry because it's from my phone, but here is Laney getting the Oh SO blue applied!

Anyway, just had to share the fun day we had. I needed some joy and the girls LOVED the girlie day! We went to lunch afterwards and now they're napping wonderfully! Sounds like I better get something productive done. We're headed for vacay on Friday and I'm LIVING for it!



HORRIBLE picture, but wanted to give you the idea!


I hope you're having a pretty toe, relaxed calf muscles, pampered heels kind of day! I know I am!!!

OK! I am so bad, I have been busy with the new job and boys that I haven't been able to keep up with your posts. You have had a terrible couple of weeks girlie!!!! I am sorry about "B", but God knows what he is doing, just trust him.
Next topic: Hysterectomy-been there done that, best thing I could have ever done for myself and my family. Just remember, when the doctor tells you NO activity for 4 weeks, he means NO dishes, vaccuuming, laundry, dusting and cooking. Sit on the couch and let the girls treat you to foot rubs, hair designs and stories. Find a comfortable spot where you don't have to worry about steps, because those will be off limits also.
You will have a couple of weeks that are not going to be good. Your emotions will be all over the place, but once you start recovering and notice how much better you feel, WOW you will be glad you did it. Not everyone is meant to have BIO children. You have enough love in you to foster and adopt many children. I believe this is your mission. Genetics are not always a good thing :-)
If you (or Tony) needs support or just have questions, please don't hesitate to call me. 967-4611 cell #

My prayers are with you and your family.

I love the pictures!! I just said to Dw today, "I really think I ought to pamper myself and go get a pedicure." He said, "Do it!" Now I read this and I'm like, "What the heck? I wasn't invited??" Just think of all the money I would have saved him - only $10?? Wow! Happy day from here to there! xo
