Your Villa or Mine?

is the name of the nail polish I got while on our beach vacation. I love it! It makes me feel like 'Peaches 'n Cream' Barbie, but has a touch of pink to it. Perfect summer color! Don't you think it would be such a fun job to name the nail polish for OPI? They have the neatest names.

I decided to take Hadley with me to get her toes painted too. She is such a girly girl and loved it so much. She stood in my bubbly water the whole time I got my pedicure, and then the lady painted her toes ElePhantastic Pink (seen below). It was such a great little mommy/daughter time. The little ladies painting toes started their Vietnamese chatter, and Hadley got this confused look on her face, and then started laughing. She looked at them and said "What you sayin'?" They laughed too, and told her what they were talking about. I mean, after all of these years of wondering if those ladies were talking about me, and all I had to do was ask them what they were saying?!! We learn so much from our children.

OK, and on a more serious note, Tadd had a patient a few weeks ago, that got the disease, elephantiasis (look at your own risk) from getting a pedicure. She got an infection in her foot from tools that weren't cleaned properly, and it turned into this terrible condition. That may have been my last pedicure...and Hadley's first and last!

I might be the only person in the world who doesn't love a good pedicure...I think it's at least in part because of that fear that they haven't cleaned the tools good enough. On a different note, you previously posted about your hair falling out several months after the birth of your baby...well, it took 4 months, but it's happening to me now. I'm guessing it's normal...

Yea, I saw an Oprah show about a lady with that condition from a bikini wax. Well, I'll never be getting one of those! I do get pedi's often and I just make sure to go to a reputable place. Don't cheap out on a pedi...for sure.

Hadley must be so darling now...she was so pretty last time I saw her. You should email me some pix....sweet little girl!!

OK- why would you put that in there to taint my love of pedicures? I am totally not clicking AT. ALL.
And I heart anyone rubbing my feet, so there. I will be going back very soon!

I wish I wouldn't have clicked on that link...ugh, that's disgusting. Now I'm really confused about whether I should get a pedi again! Ugh!
