Craft Night

Saturday night, a bunch of us girls had a craft night!
It was so much fun.
While we were crafting it up our hubbies went out on a man date!
Mika, Jacquie and Sadie didn't have a project because Wood Connection closed earlier than we thought.
So we went on a craft search and went to 3 other craft stores before they finally found something to do!
It tooks us a full belly of Rio to get through.
Every ones craft turned out so cute!

Mika J:
and Sadie:
Thanks for a great night girls! Can't wait till next time!

School Week 3

Almost a month down!
Last week was alot of fun!
I was totally didn't expect to be learning so much hands on stuff already.
We learned how to do gel nails, manicures and pedicures!
On Friday we got to bring in models for pedicures and manicures.
My mom came in for the pedicure and mom-in-law for the manicure!
I was a little nervous just cause it was the second time that we had done both of them and we had to do it in 50 minutes to pass it off.
I passed!
This week we are learning glitter toes!

100th Post

My weeks are starting to run together.

I feel like I don't have a second to RELAX.

There is always SOMETHING going on.

Last weekend my sister Kate came to visit. It has literally been YEARS since I have seen her. We don't see each other much or even talk often so it was good to catch up. Although, it is weird when she is around because then I become the little sister again when I am so used to being the oldest.

Somehow my family put me in charge of our agenda. Boy that was stressful! We are all pretty indecisive, and having to make the decision for EVERYONE is the hardest! My dad would disagree and say, "we aren't indecisive, we are just laid back!" Ya... uh huh. SURE!

The weekend FLEW by. After waking up Saturday morning, frantically cleaning my house and giving my car a much needed wash, we picked her up from the airport, went to lunch with the fam and got some good sisterly bonding time getting pedicures at school!Later we took my family to Cafe Rio for the first time and shared with them the wonder they have been missing out on for so long! Then we went to our place, played Band Hero and watched a movie. Its sure entertaining watching my mom play video games! Sunday we got up, got ready, and headed to my parents for a delicious french toast breakfast! Then headed to church with the whole family, came home and ate dinner and watched a movie!

Phew! Thank goodness I had Monday off from work... Too bad I didn't get to relax! I had to wake up and go take car of my car registration. Good lord. What an ordeal! Then lunch with dad and Kate and then off to school for the night!

We are learning manicure, pedicures and glitter toes this week... I bet you your school isnt this much fun!

Needless to say I AM EXHAUSTED! It takes much effort to do anything anymore. And forget about exercising. Last time that happened I got a migraine.

How I wish I could be napping...

1 & 1/2 Weeks Down..

...14 months and 2.5 weeks to go!
First week of school was a success! I have already learned alot and I get more excited about this career every day!
There is just me and one other girl in my class. Her name is Chalise and she is just darling! There are alot of other girls in the intermediate and advanced classes that are all very friendly and nice and our instructors are great! Its been alot of fun making new friends. It doesn't even really feel like I'm in school sometimes. We have been doing alot of bookwork, having lectures about attitude, setting goals, cleaning and even witnessed our first brazillian waxes :S. Only a few more weeks till we get to start doing hands on stuff! On Friday we had a test review by molding clay into a cell, decorating a cake of the layers of the skin(great thought to have while you are eating it ;) and last night we made collages of skin types! It makes me feel like im in elementary school again sometimes. Monday we took our first test and I did pretty good! A week ago I wouldnt have thought I could have learned that much stuff in just a week.
Last week was quite an adjustment. I was exhausted all week long. (You can probably tell by how I look in that picture :S) This week already seems to be easier. Now the challenge is to get myself up in the mornings and work out...
