II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Thrifty Thursday

Taking the idea of a Thrifty Thursday post from Amos and Logzie...I am posting my tip for this Thursday. Yes, I realize it is only Wednesday...but hey..I have to blog when I can and who knows if I'll get time tomorrow.

So...here is my tip. Get 1 pedicure this summer..then pamper yourself the rest of the season.

You all know I got a pedicure about a month ago. I wasn't that impressed with it...but they did clean up my toes very nicely and smooth out my heels and any rough spots. Well, the polish started getting old so I took it off and went to a different place yesterday to see how much they'd charge to just do a french manicure paint-job on my toes and hands. $10 each!! so it would have cost me $20 JUST to get them painted. Plus, Brooklyn wanted hers done and that would've been $5 for each of hers...so in all, it would have cost us $30. Instead, I went to Wal-Mart and bought cheap white polish for a buck, good Sally Hansen top/base coat polish for $4, a really nice 7-sided file for $3 and some really cute rhinestone nail decals for $3 and did them myself. I think they turned out pretty cute and I only spent $11 total and I can do it the rest of the summer for free. Here's what they turned out looking like. Not too shabby! Below are my toes and fingernails..above are Brooklyns.

Hey, cute flip flop tan! Just like mine! haha. What a great job you did, I will be right over for you to do my nails. Oh yeah, I don't have any, I just chopped them all off. Well a thought anyway!
