5:00pm tomorrow can not get here soon enough!!!!

We are leaving for the beach as soon as we get off of work tomorrow and I could not be more excited! We're going with my friend (her 40th birthday is actually the reason for the trip), her husband and one other couple.

There was another couple that was supposed to go, but they backed out at the last minute, like they always do. Actually, they didn't even tell us they weren't going at the last minute...the friend that's turning 40 had to call, email and text them several times to find out if they were still going before she got a reply.

Anywho, we're going to have a great time, no matter who goes or doesn't go. I can't wait to do nothing but sit on the beach for two days and eat some wonderful seafood!

Have a great weekend!

is it just me.....

or does anyone else seem to have unpleasant experiences when they get a pedicure? And it's not just one particular place where I have had a bad experience's been two or three different ones.

I realize that for $18 at one of those chain nail places, I'm not going to have a wonderful spa experience, but there are a few things that should not be unreasonable to expect. Such as:

1. I would prefer a girl over the age of 15 or 16 (she might have even been 14, she looked pretty young) that is more concerned with giving me a pedicure than strutting around in high heels trying to look cute.

2. Please look at my feet when you are using sharp objects on them, instead of paying attention to what the group of girls at the front of the salon are doing/saying.

3. If I wanted nail polish on my skin instead of my nails, then I would paint my toenails myself.

4. The price of the pedicure includes a foot massage. Your tip is also based on whether you do a good a job on the foot massage and how long you do the massage.....skipping over my favorite part of the pedicure or only massaging each foot for about two seconds isn't going to get you a very good tip.

I probably just need to start going to a real spa to get a pedicure. I realize it costs more money, but I have a feeling it would be money well spent.

I would love to have this beach towel.....

for my beach trip next weekend. I think I might buy one if I don't win it.....

To find out what I'm talking about click on over to
Mrs. Newlywed's blog for her beach towel giveaway!

could someone please explain to me.....

why the judges on American Idol would save Matt, but wouldn't save Scott last week? I don't have anything against Matt, but he's not a better singer than Scott. Simon told Matt that he doesn't have a chance of winning this competition.....then why would Simon save him? I just don't get their logic.

I am glad that they did go ahead and use the save though, so now they won't be able to use it on Lil or Anoop. And I still don't understand why either one of them have not been kicked off yet....they are terrible.

I don't guess any of this really matters though, because I will really, really be shocked if Adam doesn't win this thing. He really does have amazing talent.

I'm back.....

not that you knew I was gone. Our internet has been down for the past two days, and I don't have any down time at work to get on the internet and play, so I haven't been able to read any of your blogs.

The problem with our internet has now been fixed, so I'm going to start catching up now!

Happy Easter!

I hope you all are having a wonderful Easter Sunday!

I'm exhausted, but we had a great weekend spending time with my family. Friday night we took my sister out to eat and spent the night with her. Yesterday, we had a big lunch with all of the extended family at my Mom and Dad's, and did an easter egg hunt for all of the kids afterwards.

We always do a prize egg with money, and the amount just depends on the amount that everyone with kids donates. My Dad loves to play pranks, and he told all of the kids that the prize egg had $300 in it (it was a plastic egg) and these are all young kids, so of course they believed him.

My uncle hid the prize egg, and evidently hid it very well. Those kids looked for that egg for almost an hour with no luck, so my uncle told them to look in a certain area for it. Those kids looked in the area he told them, were out there digging for it, and even some of the adults that didn't know where it had been hidden, were out there helping them look for it to no avail. After awhile, one of my aunts decided to go out there and help them, and walked right to it where it was and found it. Where she found it was not where my uncle had put it though. Evidently, when all of the kids were digging for it, they were throwing stuff around that was in their way, and had flung it out of the area where my uncle had told them it was.

The best part though was the look on all of their faces when they realized that they had been lied to and the egg only had about $50 instead of $300 after they had exhausted themselves trying to find that egg!

good thing i'm not really a burglar.....

My boss and her family are out of town and they dropped their dog off at the vet on Friday, because she had cut her paw. They're not coming home until tomorrow, so my boss asked me if I would get their dog and take her home today. I picked her up from the vet this afternoon, took her home, and went inside to leave the medicine on the counter. My boss forgot to mention that the alarm was set and I had forgotten the code (she had given it to me a long time ago when I house sat for them). I called my boss, she didn't answer, so I called her husband, but by the time I got him and got the code, of course the police were already on there way.

The cop gets there and I tell her what happened and all she did was ask me for my name. I offered to show her my drivers license and asked if she needed me to call my boss or her husband so she could call and verify my story, and she said that no, she just needed my name for her report. While I'm very thankful that she didn't want to arrest me, I guess she didn't realize that I could have just given her a fake name.

when the boyfriend is away......

the girlfriend and her girls will play! I didn't rent Marley & Me Tuesday night when it came out, because I had to watch American Idol that night and last night. By the way, could someone please tell me why in the world Anoop has not been kicked off yet? Since my boyfriend has to go out of town tonight, I'm going to order pizza, rent Marley & Me, and snuggle up on the sofa with my girls to watch it.

The only thing that would make this even better, is if it was Friday night instead of Thursday night and I got to sleep late tomorrow.
