Open-toes till it Snows

Brandon got me this candle for Christmas. He knows I am a fan of candles. I was all ready to scream “Cancun! Are we going?” and then he said, “I know you love candles and since we aren’t going to a beach this year, I thought I would bring the beach to you.”

Blegh, hmphhhh, ugh….a candle will not replace laying in the sun, on a white sand beach. We love going to Cancun and it just isn’t in the cards this year…2 kids, ages 2 yrs and 9 months, who would volunteer for inheriting them for a week?

1st trip-Babymoon, 20 wks w/Tatum

2nd trip-Babymoon, 26 weeks w/Turner

So, it’s winter, there is no Cancun trip to look forward to, my “No Whining” sign is not doing the trick...AND.. I became a fan of the group “OMG I need a glass of wine or I’m gonna sell my kids” on Facebook this week. It has been a doozey of a week, and I need a pick-me-up.

I’ve noticed more and more lately, that I need a pedicure. My toes are beyond nast!! And if you know me, you know I love me some pedi’s. My toes haven’t been done in about 4 months. Eww. But, I don’t know if its worth it. $45 later, they are covered in Uggs, or something else for another 3 months at least. I could get one and ruin the pedi after one night in high heeled boots! It got me thinking….does everyone keep their toes up through the winter? When I was pregnant I sure did, cuz you just never knew when that baby would come, or feet in stirrups occurred pretty much every two weeks. When I lived in Vegas they were painted 365 days a year. I lived by the mantra “Open Toes Till It Snows”…you know, open-toed shoes. Now, who is gonna see them? Branmuffin? The kiddos? Me?

Come to think of it, a pedicure might make me feel better when I get a glimpse of my feet in the morning or in the shower, or before I hop into bed at night. What about you? If I grabbed your socks and pulled them off right now, what would your feet look like? Would you pass the test? Would you take a pic of yours and put it out there? I won’t. I wouldn’t.

I will let you know what I decide to do…when I get alone time, I like to spend it wisely.

BTW, the best color year-round is OPI’s “Suzi Says Da”…not too dark, but still a classic that keeps you with the times. Check it out.

That's all I've got, like I said, a doozey of a week.

I cannot handle feet are too sensitive and ticklish. =)

But, I always keep em painted because you never know when you have to take off your shoes at someones house.
