Today was such a fun day! I met my girlfriend Teri, we have been friends forever, as long as we have had kids cause I met her when her Victor and my Eric were just 2 months old and now the kids are almost 22. How they can be that age when we are just in our early 30's is beyond me…ha! So we have seen and done a lot together.
So this morning we met for pedicures, and got all smoothed out and pampered and boy my feet always feel so good. Tony suggests putting vaseline on my heels and then a pair of socks and that will soften up my feet. So I am gonna try it, I think MAMMa does this and she swears by it. Then Teri and I went to lunch, one of our favorite places to go is Applebees, we usually get the Oriental Chicken Salad, but they have this new menu that has like these pairs or something so anyway, you can get soup and salad or soup and a sandwich, but you pick two things, so I was not sure if I was going to like the French Onion Soup, so I figured if I got the unlimited, then if I didn't like the soup I could get a different kind. I think it was like $2.00 difference in price. So both Teri and I got the same thing, but she had a different soup and salad then me. So anyway, it comes and the soup was so yummy, and the salad is on like a banana shaped plate and it the perfect size. The French Onion soup was very good, nice sweet onions and a lot of cheese too.
Now I know you are saying, well Diana aren't you doing The Shupe Diet and watching what you eat? And I will answer, well yes I am, BUT I paid for the unlimited soup and salad, and well the salad was kinda small (probably a proper serving size), and well soup can't be too bad for you, with the bread and 3 inches of cheese on it. So anyway, we both got seconds, and well…I'll boogey a little longer tomorrow. We were having too much fun so it didn't matter. It's not like we do it every day right? Please do not remind me what I ate Monday night..shhh…..
Then I went to her house to see the boys who are so big now it is amazing, and also her little yorkie Churro, he is so cute, and much lighter then Toby, and his hair is much wavier, so they keep his hair shorter, but what is funny is where Toby cant hold his pee-er, Churro can't hold his lick-er. Ha! He is constantly licking, I mean eventually he will stop but I kept calling him Gene Simmons. I even got a quick hug from her hubby as he got home from work before I left.
So anyway, I had a great day, and it's back to work tomorrow. Lots to do!

Well I am on the last few pages of my Vampire Academy book and I must get it done, it is so good. The Bree Tanner book is screaming to be read and Mandy is anxious to get my reviews on it, finally a book she has not read before me.
Have a great Thursday and thanks for stopping in.

So vaseline on the feet and then socks – for like bed time?
Your card is BEAUTIFUL Diana! Miss you much

OK the card is just darling. I love it. I have soooo many flower stamps but this might be one more I have to have. I loved the watercolor ones we used to have a few years ago so this one is kind of like it. How fun to get peds and then go out with your friend to lunch. I so miss doing that with any of my friends in CA (wave to everyone out there). Well thanks for the fun on your blog and hope your have a great day.

Very beautiful card. Thanks for sharing it!
A little advice – do NOT start reading the Bree Tanner book while eating your lunch, or any other food for that matter. Made it through the first few pages during my lunch hour and decided I'd better bring it home to read at night instead of during lunch!

your friend might want to check into the licking…..can mean an allergy.
excessive licking is a the result of another problem.
