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.

You need one of these!!!

Last night, I snuck out of the house with my mom. Just me and her. It was magical! No kids = no whining and crying and fighting! Anyway, we had several errands to run and while I ran into Old Navy for a second, she went next door to Bed, Bath & Beyond. When we met back up at the car she said she had bought us something--one for me and one for her. (ohhh--yippee! I love suprises and presents!!) What she pulled from the bag though.....ummm....not exactly what I had in mind. It was a PedEgg. Usefull? --yes! But exciting??
After we 'shopped till we dropped' I crawled into my big wonderful bed and held my new little PedEgg in my hand. I thought I might as well give it a try. Away I went shaving and filing away. What I was left with was AMAZING! My feet have never been so fresh and soft! In just a couple of minutes, I had feet as flawless as my kids again! I have used many, many kinds of foot thingys in my lifetime because I am somewhat of a perfectionist when it comes to my feet. I cannot STAND peeling polish or dirty toes or dirty bottoms of the feet, so I've tried my share of gadgets but NONE compare to the ease of this PedEgg or the result! Plus, ALL shavings are contained inside until you open it to clean it...so you can do it anywhere!
I know...thinking about shavings off your feet is gross and as far as I'm concerned--just GAG ME! but...hey it's a disappointing reality of life---we all get callused heels--and we all NEED a PedEgg! If you have a Bed, Bath & Beyond near you or a Linens-N-Things, you can pick one up for $9.99. I'll even send you a 20% off coupon if you give me your address. If you don't have one of those stores nearby, you can still order one online--just google PedEgg.
I honestly think if we all had one of these and used it, we could put pedicurists out of business! (not that I want to do that---but geez!! I just can't spend $30 on my feet every month!)
Another tip that you all might not know about...if you want your toes to LOOK like you've had a pedicure but don't want to pay for one...just go and have them paint your toenails. It costs anywhere from $5 -$7 and the polish will look perfect and last WAY longer than if you do it yourself. That's about the same price as an expensive bottle of nail polish, which isn't that bad. I think our place here charges $5 for a color and $7 for a french manicure.
Okay, enough talk about feet...I need to get back to work. Speaking of...did you guys know that I work for a podiatrist (foot doctor)? Ya, so if you ever have any foot questions, feel free to ask. I type about 11,000 lines a month ALL about peoples feet problems and solutions. :o) Not that I am a doctor by any means, but I can probably tell you what he would suggest if you went and saw him.

Okay...really...back to work.....:o)

I've only ever had cracked calloused feet when I was pregnant with my son. But my husband has big ol' callouses, so maybe I'll pick one up for him! Thanks for the tip!

I've been wondering if that thing really works - now I may just have to go and pick one up for myself. You're right; $30 a month can get a little pricey. By us they call the polish-only option a "color change." And I get it done all the time. Why not just use the ped egg and have thme take care of the rest? Perfect! Thanks for the tip :)

Great tip Jen! I've seen this at the store and wondered if it actually worked, or if it was just another waste of money. Now I may have to try it.

The PedEgg is also available at Walgreens.

You are so wonderful!!! I begining to get frusterated about the whole pedicure thing...when I polish my nails...it isn't near as shiny or last long...I tried to buy overcoats and everything...but I never thought about just getting new polish!! Guess what I am going to do this Saturday morning? Kuckie is coming to town and I MUST have pretty toes for her! LOL!!

I will probably check into getting that egg thing too...I love it when you reccommend things! Thanks Jen!!

This is too funny. Chris and I have been laughing at these commercials for weeks! And he suggested I try it out. I, too, was grossed out by the "shavings" but since it gets your stamp of approval I may have to get one. A Pedi-Egg. So silly :)

Amos said...

That is a sweet thing. I am going to have to get one since my family's side all have dry cracked feet and I am determined, like you, to not let my feet look yucky. Speaking of nail polish I just found some at Walgreens called Sinful Colors Professional, not the greatest name, but at just $1.99 a bottle, it is the BEST I have ever used, and shiny looking like out of a salon. For that price you can't beat it.

I am queen of impulse buys, and the ped-egg was one of my more proud ones. :o)

Teresa said...

I bought mine today!! I am going to take it with me on our trip tomorrow and use it in the hotel...(my gosh...that sounds horrible! LOL!)...

Teresa said...

Okay...I know we just IM'd but I forgot to mention that I used my pedegg on the way to Indianapolis and oh my gosh...baby butt smooth!! I love it!! But let me tell you about 'build up'...LOL...I had some major callouses...I used that thing for 2 straight hours!!

I thought about you the entire time~! LOL!! Really...I did!
