Vanessa and I took the girls we mentor out for a manicure or pedicure. We had a good time and were laughing about something the entire time. The girls loved every minute of it. They both about fell asleep because they were so relaxed. I had decided before our arrival that I would only get my toes re-polished. I had no idea how difficult it would be to watch someone else get a pedicure! A pedicure is one of my favorite things ever! It was like watching somebody eat peach cobbler on an empty stomach. Torture! My new favorite toe color is OPI's Cajun Shrimp. Vanessa and I bought a bottle of OPI's Chocolate Moose. This is going to be a good summer color once I get a tan.
I, along with everyone else in the world, am shamelessly addicted to the Pioneer Woman's blog. Click here to check it out! She is so talented in photography and writing. Maybe one day, we will meet, and she will invite me to stay with her on her ranch for awhile. I want to be her BFF and take some cooking lessons from her. I love how she cares for her family and her cowboy of a man! It is hilarious that she calls her kids her punks. How cute is that?! Here is a picture from her blog. I so get this.
As I'm preparing for another work week, especially one that follows a week long break, I keep thinking about my dream of opening a cupcake bakery. This summer I plan to start really thinking about it and planning. I read a quote the other day that asked, "What would you do if you knew you could not fail?" Gosh...if only we would be willing and courageous enough to really ask ourselves this question and risk more in our daily lives and in pursuit of our dreams. Yes, there would be failure, but I bet the success along the way would be more than worth it.
This wall paper, French country pink and green toile, will be in my home one day. You have heard it here first. I have bookmarked the company. I absolutely love it and think it would be precious in a bathroom. Go here if you are interested!
Our final day in Pittsburgh was action packed. We didn't slow down at all. Our first stop was Pamela's for breakfast. Sandy swore by their pancakes, and she was right on! They were amazing. I've never had thin, crispy around the edges kind of pancakes before.
This part of our Sunday at Sandy's dad's house deserves its own post. I shot a gun for the first time in my life, and to top that, I shot in high heels. It was awesome! Sandy's dad and brother showed me what to do. I shot a 22 Revolver. I think that is what it's called.
