And we're off!

Of course we had to get this vacation started properly.


The gals and I hit the town for some mani/pedis. I seriously LOVE pedicures. I mean, I squirm and hysterically laugh the entire time because my feet are so ticklish...but I still love them.

Now, I feel completely cruise-ready.


But I am missing one part of the story.

So, as much as I love pedis, I NEVER get them. Special occasions only.

I wanted to make sure I left a good tip, so I mouthed "How much should I tip" to my friend Rachael, who was sitting across the room.

She mouthed back "Twenty Percent".

I thought to myself, "Sheesh, that sure is a lot for a $35.00 mani/pedi."

So, I signed my receipt and went on my jolly way.

After thinking about it for a few minutes, it struck me. I realized she meant twenty percent...not twenty dollars.

Yep. I left a 70% tip for a $35.00 mani/pedi.

Sigh. I guess I made one girl's night for sure!

Any-hoo. We're off for just over a week. Heading to the Caribbean. No cell phones. No internet.

And I.Can't.Wait.

Peace out my friends!

Oh my word! LOL I would totally do that! I am like you in that I only get mani's for special occasions. I'd rather have a pedi because they last longer! And they are more relaxing!
