Pedis and Extreme Makeover!

I'm being lazy {I like to call it pressed for time}. I'm going to combine a little pedicure talk {and some photos} with a very quick Extreme Makeover: Me Edition update.

Amber hosts EM:Me. Her blog was one of the very first I came across in blogland. She's so super adorable, and is newly pregnant with a very long awaited baby to add to her already sweet family. I'm so happy for her!

She has no question for us this week, which means just a quick update will do.

I wish there was something exciting to update, but sadly, there is not. I still cannot get into an exercise groove. But I have lost a few more pounds which puts me down around the weight I was at when I was competing in pageants. Though I look at this body and wonder how that can be. It certainly doesn't look like the same body! I am happy with my weight, now if my body would just magically tone itself, that would be great. I am drinking a LOT of water. I love water, and I've been craving it more and more lately. That's about all there is to tell.

*****************************
As for our morning at the salon . . . it was great! The girls really enjoyed their pedis. It was so cute to see them seated together in the big chair while their little tootsies got pampered and polished. Makenna was adamant that she wanted no polish, but at the last minute changed her mind. They were so grateful and excited to be there. It just warmed my heart. I love these girl moments spent together. I hope they've enjoyed our girl-week as much as I have.

{Please excuse the poor photos. The lighting wasn't great and I haven't had time to edit}

I tell ya, I was feeling relaxed just watching them!

In the end, they both thought that alternating black and orange would be appropriate for an October pedicure. What can ya do?

Oh how sweet! What a good mama you are! I am horrible about stuff like that. I need to get better about doing special things with the girls. And I actually ♥ the orange & black! So cute!

And oh my gosh, congrats on the weight! You are too stinkin fabulous and I'm pretty jealous. HOW in the world do you do it??? I've been drinking tons of water too, so maybe I'll have some of the luck you're having. {Lol, I seriously doubt that}

Thank you so much for letting me be a part of this today!! I loved watching those little munchkins having the time of their lives. What lucky little girls to have a mom like you!
