Opposite Footsies

When my sister arrived last week, we had a free afternoon with just the older girl cousins. I had yet to have my one pedicure of summer, so we all trucked down to have our toes done. You should have seen these two giggle when the massage chair got the "kneading" setting!

It looked like they were being alternately punched in the back....we finally had to have the chairs turned off because the girls couldn't contain themselves (and some people apparently like to read People magazine in peace and quiet when they are having their toes painted!).

Look what happened!

D and I didn't even wear our Birkenstocks to the salon, but a couple of days later when we were both wearing them, she went "Mom, look at our feet!!". Hilarious.

It's stinkin' hot here, but I managed some sewing yesterday. D's friend is having an Eclipse-viewing birthday party this afternoon, so I whipped up this little wallet that is my current kid-gift-stand-by (it's a Valori Wells sewing card pattern).

It's easy to tuck a little cash or a gift card inside so the birthday girl can chose something she likes.

I think T & I will crash the party tonight and sneak into the back of the air-conditioned theatre. We've read and loved the books, so we have to see the movie, too! I hear it's the best one so far, but I think Stephanie Meyer's fans are so devoted they would say that even if the movie was a flop....have you seen it? What did you think?

it was actually really good. I've read the books but I'm not a die hard fan and I enjoyed the movie. Good (mostly) clean summer fun.

Okay apparently I am too old - my first thought when I read about the birthday party was that I hadn't heard there was going to be an eclipse... It is a very good thing I can laugh at myself :-)

I did NOT like the last one, it dragged! The husband was a good sport and watched the last ones with me. Haven't seen this new movie. Is it better? Not a huge fan, just like silly fun.

Cute pedicure!

Oh, I'm so craving a pedi. Sounds so relaxing. Those people reading People magazine should maybe relax a little and join in the chuckle fest. Speaking for myself, I wouldn't have been able to resist the girl's giggling and would have easily joined them. Ah, summer fun!

I haven't read the books, but have enjoyed the first two SM movies. An air-conditioned theater sounds fantastic right about now. That's a fun little wallet, I love the fabrics. It makes a nice gift.
