Girl’s night!

Ben and I gave my Mom a gift certificate for a luxurious pedicure for Mother’s Day, and she finally cashed it in tonight. Being the generous daughter that I am, I offered to get a pedicure too, so she wouldn’t have to go alone. HA! ;)


We entered and consulted the “wall o’ color”.


My eyes immediately went to the “pink” shelf. Pink is my favorite color, don’t ya’ know.


I settled on OPI’s Tropical Punch – the color I usually get for my summer pedis. It’s bright, fun and screams: it’s summertime!


It looks kind of coral-y in this picture, but it is hot pink in real life!


We settled in for a relaxing back massage in the big, comfy massage chairs,


and proceeded to get the living daylights rubbed out of our tired feet and calves. It.Was.Incredible. Locals – Venetian Nails at Jordan Creek Town Center is where it’s at. They massage each of your legs/feet for a good 20 minutes!  


All better!


Mother/daughter time is the best time. :D


The salon we went to was in the mall, so after our treatments we headed to the food court to snag some Panera for dinner. We were starving!


We both settled on the classic You Pick Two. Which is actually you pick three because they let you choose your side. Sweet!


I chose Chicken Noodle Soup and an apple,

and the big poppa himself, a Mediterranean Veggie sandwich! Oh, Mediterranean Veggie, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways…

1. You are stuffed to the gills with the tastiest of toppings, including fresh veggies, feta cheese and cilantro-jalapeno hummus.


2. Your Tomato Basil Bread has the sweetest crust and softest, pillowy center.


3. And you’re just really tasty, mmkay?


We had a terrific view of the hot and muggy outdoors from our cool and comfortable table indoors. :) 


Don’t you love spending time with your Mom?! :)

I am off to finally put together my Keurig – I shall be brewing my first cup in the a.m.!



What color do you usually chose for your nails? Do you match your fingers & toes?
