Of Weddings and Manicures

If I had any male readers I’ll be losing them today. This weekend is a busy one at our house. My daughter Katie is the Maid of Honor in her best friend’s wedding today. We are all a buzz with nails, hair, dresses, toast speeches, schedules, pictures, etc. One thing I’ve found out about myself is that manicures are not for me! I went with Katie for her manicure and she offered to buy me one. OOPS!

Oh sure, my hands and nails look nicer than they usually do, but I don’t know how to behave with a manicure. This is maybe my third ever manicure. I have a tendency to be rough on hands and things. I knicked one of the tips as soon as we walked out of the salon. Now I feel as though I need to sit around like a princess till after the wedding. I’m being held prisoner by my manicured nails. No mowing the lawn, no washing dishes, no scrubbing anything! I guess I’ll just have to wait till Sunday to do the things I normally do. “Dear” is in California so he’s missing all this fun. I wanted him to see my nails before I wipe them out!

Here’s a photo of Katie’s preparation for her part in the wedding. More photos of the beautiful outcome coming soon…(I hope she doesn’t mind that I know I posted this…)  🙂

Katie (the maid of honor) and Heidi (the bride) on their way to the Wedding Rehearsal last night.

Best friends through the ups and downs of their teen years! So different from each other but God brought them together for fellowship with Him and one another.

Praying for a beautiful blessed event today and that the Bride and Groom and Maid of Honor can relax enough to enjoy the celebration!

As of July 2017 Photobucket has blacked out all my photos and is holding them hostage on their site.

  1. Aw, Ellen has to be a LADY for a few days! Enjoy it! Your hands and nails look so nice! Isn’t it nice to be pampered though? This is what I miss in not having a daughter … with two sons, everything is camo, hunting, fishing and nothing feminine. I put up a flowered shower curtain one time and the ‘boys’ about had a fit! They felt like they were in a girls bathroom … but don’t get it that MOM needs some fluff! IF I came home with my nails done they would all faint!!!! ;-))) Enjoy your fluff Ellen! I hope you thoroughly take the time to set back and take it all in … thanks for sharing with us!!

    Hi Pam, Thanks for the encouragement. We had two boys before our little after thought Katie arrived. After G.I. Joe, Transformers and camo it was fun to do a little fluff!

  2. Oh I do hope you have a wonderful day.
    Your manicure is beautiful. I started to get french manicures when my nails were in really bad shape. At first I felt nervous about ruining them but now I live my life and if they chip, well, there is always next month.
    I love weddings, and I look forward to a peek into your daughters maid of honor day.
    I especially smiled at the mask photo. Good job on sneaking it in.

    Hi Lovella, Yikes day two with a manicure and I think I might be getting used to it. We did have a wonderful day. Thanks.

  3. The mask photo is great! Cute picture of the girls! I am starting to feel old though! Katie a maid of honor in a wedding! Yikers!
    Hopefully the weather will hold up. It is lovely so far. Ahh the Northwest. Sunny, no, raining, wait, cloudy, sunny, raining… whatever. It will be joyful for them no matter what!
    Next photo session posting, I hope you have pictures of what you are wearing to go with those fabulous nails!
    Love ya! Off to Whole Foods!

    Hi Lana, Well one photo that you can almost tell what I’m wearing. Fun times.

  4. Your manicure looks beautiful! I’m heavy on my hands too. I had acrylic nails applied for my wedding day and most of them had fallen off half way through our honeymoon. 🙂

    Sarah, Some things are best left to the more genteel amongst us. 🙂

  5. I never get manicures anymore – I’m always banging or nicking my fingers before the day is out so it’s a real waste of money
    Now pedicures are another thing all together – I love ’em – and they last a long time.

    Kathie, I think I’ll save the manicure money and put it towards a massage instead!
