Almost a lady

Today I did something I've never done before... what is it, you ask?

Well, theres a lot of little things I haven't done that people give me grief about these include, but are not limited to, things like never having watched any one of the Rocky movies.

There are also a lot of little things I haven't done that no one cares about but me. These include things like: going to the middle of the country to make sure it really is as flat as everyone says it is, trying to ride a unicycle, knitting anything longer than 2 inches without giving up, doing a triathlon (sounds so awesome, but... yeah), learning to make soap, figuring out any good recipes to make with my gross caramel, going a full week without losing my keys, and so on.

This one is somewhere in the middle. Today, with a bit of moral support, I got my first manicure. I know people like this, but I'm always afraid of situations that might involve enforced chatting with a stranger (I love chatting with strangers, just not when I'm forced to). I also am afraid of being yelled at by the manicurist for having short nails and horrifically neglected cuticles. Fortunately, none of this happened, and I survived the incident unscathed. I don't know if I'll do it again, but for the moment, I'm feeling pretty glamorous...

Nice work! So I take it you haven't ever had a pedi either then?

You haven't lived until you've had a pedicure!

you're right, I haven't! I figured this was enough baby-steps for today :)

aw, they look great!
I just got my first pedicure of the season. It just makes me feel so good.
It's the little things...
