There are certain things that really suck about being female. I’m sure I don’t need to lay them all out there for you, my beloved (mostly female) readers, as I’m sure you know what they are, i.e. “that time of the month”, leg shaving, etc. But today was one of those days that made me appreciate being of the female persuasion. It was just me and my little Sister Bear, as the boys went to Kansas to watch some drag-racing. We opted to enjoy a lunch at the place of little J’s choosing (Long John Silvers- she loves her coleslaw!). Then we were off to spoil ourselves a little by going for a pedicure. I have only had one pedi in my life (for the wedding), always choosing to spend my money on books instead:), but we splurged today and both got one. It was so fun to watch Jalyn wiggle and squirm as the lady rubbed and scrubbed her little footsies. She loved being pampered, and every one who walked by the salon grinned when they saw her enjoying herself so.
We both decided to go with a Halloween theme, alternating orange and black. What can I say? We love our holidays around here! We call them our candy corn toes.
Next we were off for a hair appointment for me…not really fun for Sis, I guess…but she did tell me my hair looked pretty when we left. I added some new colors this time, opting for the shades of Coffee and Hot Rum. I feel like an alcoholic beverage in the making! And I LOVE it! So glad I decided to stray from my normal red and blonde. Still have some blonde on top, but the dark brown underneath is really, really pretty. Of course, my lovely hairdresser (also named Jessica), cleaned up the cut as well, which was desperately needed. Isn’t it funny how much better a new haircut/color can make you feel?
I’m feeling a little feisty with my sassy new hair & festive toes– too bad my hubby will be so exhausted by the time they return tonight. (Did I mention they left at 3:45 this morning!! No.Thank.You.) We’re off to enjoy some macaroni & cheese (cause we can eat just pasta for dinner if we want, darn it!), and watch Strawberry Shortcake.
Getting to spend just “girl time” with Jalyn has been so much fun, probably even more so for me:) We need to schedule this time for ourselves more often, if not just for our toes sake, but also for our mother/daughter relationship. Nothing makes me happier than seeing my kiddos smile, and poor Sissy’s face is about to burst today, she’s been smiling so big. And besides…sometimes, being a girl really isn’t that bad.:)
