Yesterday, Beautiful Daughter and I went in to the nail salon for a pedicure. OH.....MY.....that is the MOST relaxing thing in the whole, entire world. Big, hugh, massaging chairs that rub and roll and prod your back and neck, while your feet are soaking in the warm, moisturized water. The warm cremes and oils the lady massaged my legs and feet with made me feel like a million bucks. I so intended to get pictures of us but, once I sat down and the wonderfulness began, my camera was the LAST thing on my mind.
If you've not ever had a pedicure or if it's been awhile, treat yourself to one when you can. It will make a new woman of you!! :)

This delightful and funny award is from KAREN over at KAREN'S KORNER. MANY THANKS, KAREN....
It is my understanding that this was actually started by MELANIE at LIVIN' WITH ME and is a fun CLUB, which she would love for anyone liking to, to sign up. Please go by her blog and you will find all the instructions there. THANK YOU, MELANIE...(I do hope I am doing all this right...if not, PLEASE let me know and I will correct anything I've done wrong!)


How cute is this award button?? I just love it and so many thanks to TERRI at BOB AND TERRI and to CAROLYN at TALK..TO..GRAMS, and to KAREN at KAREN'S CORNER. If there is anyone else, please accept my thanks. I have been away for a few days and am having trouble getting all caught back up. To all of you, my thanks!!

Please stop by these ladies' wonderful they all are. I'm telling you....I just love this blog world. It is not only fun but the friendships being made are priceless. The ideas we get from each other just blows my mind and the recipes we share are just to die for. I love it all......

If you are listed on my sidebar, PLEASE take this adorable button over to your site and know that you are viewed daily...not only by me but many, MANY more !!

What a precious award...Thank you so much, BRITTANY at SHABBY COTTAGE.
I thank you so much for thinking of me and for presenting me with it.

Ladies, pls stop by to see BRITTANY. Her blog is so sweet and she is sick and probably needs an encouraging word. I do hope you feel better really soon, BRITTANY. Those old colds can make you feel soooo rotten!

I pass this sweet award on to:

Hi BJ.. though I wrote recently about taking a step back from blogging I am finding it virtually impossible to live without my daily dose of blog visits and posts...
It IS an addiction but oh what a healthy one...
My life has turned many shades brighter since I met all of these wonderful blog friends... and you are very much part of my more colourful world..

Linda said...

Hi BJ, congratultions on all the great awards.
I totally agree...pedicures are the best. What color did you choose? For some reason I always go for the reds. Have a most happy weekend. Linda

Terri and Bob said...

Cute awards and I LOVE a pedicure, too. I think it cures more than my feet!

Michelle said...

BJ, Congratulations on your awards. I do enjoy a pedicure, but I have extremely ticklish feet so I have to really concentrate.

Have a great weekend and I'll be thinking of you Monday..


Marcela said...

Hello my dear BJ
Great!!! you deserve them!!!
I'm glad to know that you had a wonderful and relaxing time!!!

I wish you a wonderful weekend.

Anita said...

Congratulations on your awards - I can't think of anyone who deserves them more... :)
Thank you, too, for my award! It really does mean a lot to me... :)

Now about pedicures... I've never had one. Nope. Never. I love manicures, but haven't had one in over 10 years...
I've always wanted to try a foot massage... I spent years and years standing behind a register and my feet still hurt from it... My high school Home. Ec. teacher used to know reflexology, and gave the most heavenly foot rubs... *sigh*
yep... I really need to get a foot massage... right after I get a pedicure.. lol

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality said...

Hi, BJ, aren't pedicures fun? I haven't had one in a long time, so I think I'm due this spring.

I love all your black & white things. I have a real fondness for black/white too. Your's are all so pretty. I have a similar fleur de lis plate too.

Have a great weekend!

Tammy said...

I've never had a pedicure. My first manicure was very well done and sent me into raptures so I can just sit here and imagine what you described would be like!

Congrats on your awards you blogaholic you!!

Nan said...

There are those pretty toes. I could use a good pedicure. My polish is worn off right now. Good thing that it's winter.

Good Evening BJ,
I know, I'm late for our coffee, but you got anything sweet to eat? LOL. I have been gone all day and I need a chocolate fix. LOL. Oh, girlfriend, I have had a pedicure a couple of times and it's the most relaxing thing in the world. I used to go to a place in the mall in Jonesboro, AR and have my fingernails done as well as my toenails. That all had to be put on hold for a while. Maybe, just maybe, I can talk someone into letting me having it done again for my Birthday and Anniversary. Hmmmm, wonder who I would need to let know? LOL. Oh, I'm sure if we have the money, he will let me. "CONGRATULATION'S" on your Awards and you are most Welcome for the ones I passed on to you. I am still online, but I don't understand how tho. It could come on Monday. I pray that they will just let me pay 2 bills in one month. "THANK YOU" for all the kind and encouraging words you left on my comments and the email as well. That means so much to me and to know everyone is thinking of us and praying for us. It just gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling. I did do a post this morning before I left. I will probably do one tomorrow as well. Take care my friend and have a great evening. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

Enjoy your Sunday!
Hugs and love, Suzy
