spt -- #21 of 100

#21 on my 100 list is: I wish I could get a pedicure once a month.

Again, only my love for Lelly and spt could induce me to post such a horrible photo. But there you have it. Dry, calloused, ugly feet. (I wonder if I should post a warning at the beginning of this post?)

I can't even remember the last time I had a pedicure, although I suspect it was toward the end of my pregnancy with Eva, so that would have been 3 1/2 years ago. Is that possible?

My feet don't normally look this gross. I usually give myself pedicures, or at the very least keep my toenails painted. But for some reason, they have been like this for about a month now. Sick.

So, to sum up:

If I could, I would get a pedicure every month.
I don't think I would tire of it.
I don't think I would ever be disappointed to get a pedicure for any gift-giving occasion.
I think it would help with my foot pain (well, at least it couldn't hurt!).
Maybe someday.

But for now, it's back to my old standby. And quick!

I agree with you, Lelly's challenges encourage us to do things and take chances we normally wouldn't. Good for Lelly. Good for us.

At least you have strong nails to cure. That's a good thing.

I love all the colors in the bottom photo (and how manicured your fingernails are).

i love a good quick fix!!

i like how my nails look after a pedi, but i honestly don't enjoy the process that much (oh, how i wish i did.) the filing and the sloughing are like nails on a chalkboard for me...

Laurie said...

There's got to be health benefits involved in pedicures. Not just phychologically, but I'm sure the massage would help your foot pain.

Cute polish color!

carlo said...

oh i love OPI! I totally agree that i would not tire of pedi's. no way!

:) brave you.

I generally get a little lax on peds during the winter months, but let's go get one when I come for Christmas!! We'd better plan now, as the time will pass too quickly!

Great color!

I'm so surprised with all of Jill's raving about her pedicures you guys haven't gone together. With all you do, you deserve a little foot love.

love the color.

Denise said...

I also love pedicures but sadly, never get them. The last one I had was about 2 years ago when I went to help your mom with a project (and she treated me). *sigh*

I love your SP--always the master photographer!

Jill said...

Oh dear! I didn't realize you'd be living for a month with naked toes! Doesn't Marc know that the state of your feet directly correlates with your state of mind? Perhaps I should enlighten him because a quick peek at your feet might help things on the home front. Ha!

I think all women should be able to get monthly pedicures!

Amy said...

I love painted toes, and definitely feel better when mine are done.

Amy said...

Oh...and I agree with Crystal on your eyes having such a playful sparkle in the SP...gorgeous!
