Treat yourself right!!

Well, today is not going to be about card making!!  It's about treating ourselves now and then.

Today, I'll be going to get my hair cut and my nails done.  Now....that doesn't seem too astounding....to most people....but if anyone, that really knows me, is reading this blog......they are going to re-read that comment about nails.

I am going to admit....I have been a nail biter since I can't remember when....and I just turned 67.

But, on August 1st....I had a mani-pedi. The gal that did my nails talked with me at great length as she was doing my nails.  Actually.....there wasn't a lot of nail to work with....so she just pretty much did the best she could.  My main goal was to get enough length so that she could give me Gels......as I was bound and determined to have fingernails for once in my life.

Then, I made an appointment for two weeks later.....because I felt if I was 'accountable' to someone.....it might work....and besides....I had to grow them out to be able to get gels.

Well, it worked.....I made it the two weeks.  Then, we discussed growing out my own...as opposed to having acrylics or gels.  She told me that anything like gels or acrylics are hard on your own nails.  She said that my nails were actually strong....and if I cared for them....I wouldn't need to get gels.

So, I agreed to wait...and went back in two more weeks....and she said they were doing great and getting stronger.

Now, mind you....I am NOT going to be going to get my nails done every two weeks....but just to get started growing them out....I decided I needed to.

So, today will be 3 weeks since I had my last appointment.....and they have improved so much!!!  I can't wait for her to see them!!

I don't want them super long...as I have never had long nails....and it would bug me.  But, I want them long enough to put nail polish on.....and be happy with how they look!!!

I am so excited....I have already bought nail polish remover, nail polish, a nail kit....and cuticle cream.  It's just insane.

For the past 3 years, I have been buying nail polish for my Granddaughter and she has a box full of it!!!  I want some of it BACK!!!! LOL

Not really, I am going to start my own collection!!

Wow....never ever say you are too old to do something.....and never give up on something you really want!!

My whole point is....take time for yourself...it might not be a hair cut and a manicure...maybe it's a spa treatment....or going to the book store and buying yourself a really good book.

I can't begin to tell you how good it made me feel to do this for myself.  I always thought I shouldn't spend money on myself....but hubby said..."if it makes you feel good....do it".

Have a great day!!!!
