The Next Day
I'm still talking about my amazing weekend. On Saturday, I had my first manicure. It feels strange to say that; almost like I'm making a confession: "Forgive me Gods of Cool, for I am really a Girly-Girl." The story is that one of the para-educators at Bronwyn's school also runs a small business out of her home studio giving manicures and pedicures. She is a lovely Vietnamese woman who has a special place in her heart for Bronwyn (which means that she has a special place in my heart). She invited me to come for an evening of pampering, and I DID! It was such a nice way to relax. If you're local, go check out her studio: It's called Kim's Nails in Olympia, WA. You won't be sorry!
The next day, one of my dear friends and I traveled to Chehalis to Sister's Fabric Shop, land of more than 10,000 bolts of delicious-ness. I bought so much fabric that they told me I could shop by appointment if I wanted to. Welcome to celebrity status of fabric buying, Colleen! I'm a little embarrassed, but LOOK at the fabric I got! But boy oh boy, I need to get to work to make some money back!
