It is Friday and I am looking forward to a fun night. It has been a long day but I still need to get a manicure and as long as I am out I will be off to Sweet Home. I called Dream Nails at about 4:15 to see if I could get in at 5:30 and that was fine so I had an hour to get ready. Now I really love taking my time getting ready usually an hour and a half but when needed I can get ready in 45 minutes if needed.
I was all ready by a little after 5 so I had a little time before I needed to leave for the nail salon. I got there about 5:20 and Anna was ready for me. Now they were a lot busier then the last time I was here. there were 4 woman and a man getting pedicures and one getting her nails done. I really do love going to the nail salon as it is such a relaxing fun time.
Anna worked on my nails and did a wonderful job, this time she didn’t even ask me if I wanted my nails trimmed back she just filed them down a little and evened them out. They look beautiful and just a little on the long side for my male side. I will have to file them down some in a few days. It was about 6 pm when I was done and left the salon with my beautiful nails. They would look so much better with a red though.
I got to Sweet Home a little after 6, Robyn and Chris were already there. I little later Roxy showed up so there were 4 of us tonight. We had a nice time although I was really getting tired now as I have been up since 3 am today. It was a little before 10 when I called it a night. It was a fun evening out.
I will be out again Saturday night as our group is having a celebration of life for Cristine who passed away a little over a week ago.
It has been 2 weeks since my last manicure and I really wanted to go get a manicure and pedicure tonight. A chance to be out as Susan for a little while. This is always such a fun and relaxing experience that woman get to enjoy. I got home at 3 and was going to call and make an appointment but figured I would take my shower and do some of the prep work first. I got out of the shower and shaved and was ready to start my makeup by 3:20. I called Dream nails to see if I could get in, Annie answered the phone and new who I was so I guess she has my number stored in her phone system. She asked what time I wanted to come in and I was planning on 4:30 which gave me an hour to finish getting ready but for some reason I said 5 so she said she would see me at 5. Now it was time to enjoy the time getting ready and doing my makeup.
It was 4:15 when I finished my makeup so I was way ahead of schedule. I was getting ready to start getting dressed when the phone rang so I answered it and ended up talking to my parents for about 15 minutes. I no more than hung up and my brother called, wow I am popular today. Any way I talked to him for about 15 minutes all the time wondering what they would think if they knew how I looked as I was talking to them. full makeup and wearing a bra and panties. I got off the phone with him and looked at the clock and it was 4:45. I had 15 minutes to get dressed and hair on, pack up my computer and get to the nail salon. Luckily it is close as it was 4:56 when I pulled out of my garage.
I walked into the nail salon right at 5 and Annie was waiting for me so it was right to the table. She filed off the top of the gel polish and then put the remover on them and the little clamps t hold them on and then took me over to start my pedicure. I sat and soaked my feet as she finished up another lady. It was about 15 minutes before she came over to do my pedicure. Now I have never sat with those clamps on my fingers that long but it is amazing how often you want to brush hair off your face or do something else with your hands when you can’t.
Annie asked me what color I wanted for my toes and as I got here right at 5 I didn’t have time to pick out a color so I told her something red and she said she had a red she really liked and went and got it. It is a deep darkish red with a little bit of shimmer or sparkle to it and looked pretty so I said it was fine. this is the first time I have let someone else pick out the color and it really is a pretty color. Now I really do love getting a manicure and pedicure as it is so relaxing, a wonderful way to treat yourself. The soaking, leg massage, lotion and oil, hot stone rub my legs never look or feel better then after a pedicure and they stay that way for a couple days, silky soft skin. She got done and put the color on my toes and it was beautiful, so wish I could get it on my fingers also.
now it was time for the manicure so we went over to the table and she scraped the gel polish off, trimmed the cuticle and evened out the nails. I filed them down at home before I came to get the length I wanted. that way all Annie had to do was shape them which she did. Next was the polish and I got the same gel polish I did last time as I really like it. it is a clear polish with just a hint of rosy pink. well it depends on the light as to how rosy pink it is. in certain light it just looks clear but in others you can defiantly see the rosy pinkish color. Now I have been coming here to Dream Nails for over two years, my first visit was 9/18/2014, yes I looked it up in my blog, although the first year was not that often but the last year starting last January I have come here to get my nails done every 2 to 3 weeks and I love it. I would encourage everyone, male or female to do this at least once and see how you like it. I am sure you will do it again.
It was 6:30 when I was all finished and I once again had pretty toes and fingers. Now I didn’t want to go home yet one of the reasons I brought my computer so I drove across the street to Starbuck. Now as I said before I am getting more comfortable as Susan. A few years ago I would never have gone to a Starbucks so close to my house as a matter of fact the Starbucks I did go to was about 12 miles away. This one is less than a half mile and is the closest to my house. They weren’t busy maybe 5 other people inside so I had my choice of tables. I ordered a Hot Chocolate and a cheese Danish and got out my computer. I spent a little time catching up on some e-mails and work before turning to more important things. Updating my blog.
This week I will make it out 3 times, tonight of course, tomorrow night for dinner with my friends. We are doing our Christmas dinner and Cassandra set up the reservations. I know we have 10 but we have room for 16 so I am hoping more come out. Cassandra set it up and made all the reservations, Thanks Cassandra. I also plan on being out Friday night also. I have to work early on Sunday so I will not be able to go out and Celebrate New Years with my friend which is sad. They are going to Harvey’s Comedy Club for New Years. I may see if they are meeting at Fox & Hounds first and if so maybe I might go have dinner there with them before the show and then go home when they head for Harvey’s.
Tomorrow night at Dinner Cassandra and I are going to talk about Diva Las Vegas and set our plans. Veronica is thinking of going but wants to know whet we are doing and also Julie will be there and I think / hope she is going so we should be able to have it all worked out soon. It will be good to see Julie again as it has been a while as the Holidays always make it harder to get time to go out.
Now I have been sitting here at Starbucks and not paying attention to the time and it is now a little after 8 and they are closed. The young man had to come remind me, wow I guess time flies when Susan is having fun. I left Starbucks and headed for home. wow my feet are cold wearing flip flops. I don’t know how girls wear them in the winter when it is cold out. It only took a couple minutes to get home so I am finishing my blog at home. I am not going to put the matte polish on my nails because I want to show them off to Julie tomorrow night. It should be interesting as the last time I did go to work for several days with shinny nails but tomorrow will be busy and I will have a lot more interaction with co-workers.
Well thanks for reading and I hope you all had a Merry Christmas and have a safe and Happy New Years this weekend.
