Sweets and Sours

what a fabulous weekend i have had! i am going to share everything in my "sweets and sours" format!

sours:

* my house is still a bit of a mess. i just am not finding the time or the energy to do anything about it.

* it is sunday afternoon, at that means that my weekend is almost over! i don't want it to be over!

* i don't really like the color of polish on my toes... (more later... on my "sweet" list)

sweets:


* my mom was here all weekend! we had so much fun! her birthday is on thursday (9/13) so she came up this weekend to celebrate with us! here is what we did!


* i bought my mom her first pair of sandals! at least the first pair in the last decade! she is not really a sandal wearer... but i wanted to get her some to show off her new pedicure!!!....


* we went and got pedicures together! it was so much fun! we sat in these comfy chairs that had little back massage things on them while our "girls" worked on our feet! so great! i got a salmon colored pink... that i don't really like (see sours), but my mom got her favorite color... purple! she had them put pink sparkles on too! she is very very cute!


* while we were waiting for our toes to dry we decided to go to the bead shop! oh my goodness! the entire shop is as big as my living room, however, my mom and i were there for over 1 1/2 hours! it was sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo fun! we spent a good chunk of money, but it was worth every penny!



* of course since we bought so many beads, we had to go to michael's and get some little storage bins for all of them...

* for dinner we (mom, kevin, ann, julie and i) went to iggy's. it was really good. none of us had been there before and it was fun to try new stuff! the "chili water" that they serve with the bread is absolutely amazing! i wanted to buy some for home, but i forgot. i am going to have to go back!
* mom and i stayed up until after 11pm (for any of you who know me, that is VERY VERY LATE for me... usually in bed by 8pm!!!) making jewelry! mom loves to make earrings and she made several cool pairs. i am more of a bracelet girl, so i made about 5 bracelets! wow... love it! matter of fact, when i am done posting, that is what i am going to go do... make some more bracelets!

* oh... i also got my passport yesterday in the mail! kris, i guess we could of gone to mexico this month after all.... oh well... we will have a great time in january too! i can't wait!

* i asked my mom to be my photographer for our christmas card photo, so after church, we had a little photo shoot. i am hoping that i have a good one in the mix...


i need your help in choosing my pic... which one do you like? i will crop them and maybe change the coloring a bit... but overall picture... which one do i choose?

thanks for all of your help! hope your weekend was fun too!

I like 1 and 5 the best! :) 5 of course would have to be cropped in a bit so there's not alot of wasted space on the card, but I really like that one the best, but I'm not sure how I'd like it cropped for a card. I know, I'm indecisive and not much help! LOL

I've been looking at bracelets all weekend for our baby! LOL The kind with little Swarvski (I know I spelled that wrong) crystals on them, so cute! Now I just have to decide which one to get! LOL I'm not crafty. I'm more of a braclet girl too! LOL

And cute toes! I usually go with the french pedicure look cause colors on my toes usually bug me cause I will wear something that doesn't match. LOL

Happy Birthday to your mom! Glad you had a fun weekend!!!

I like # 1! You're looking super sassy with the haircut! Sorry about all the emotion on the phone last night! You're such a great friend and I know I can always talk and laugh and bawl with you!!!

I like number 1 but if you can crop #5 then I would go with that one.
Also, I love the toes! I have not had a predicure in ages. I don't like strangers touching my feet. I think I have to have my hubby paint my toes here soon. He does a great job. LOL!
