ALL THAT SPARKLES AND SHINES . . .

I have now had my first official week of Nail Tech classes ... I love it! Even the not so fun pedicure I had to give couldn't spoil all the fun. Here is a run down of this week . . . .
My first day I had book work (which there is every day) and then learned manicures, so I received one and then had to give one. Then I practiced on Randy at home (without the polish). The next day I did 4 chapter reviews, learned pedicures, I received one and gave one. I had to leave early that night for Young Women's which was a fun night also. We are getting ready for New Beginnings next Wednesday. I'm slightly nervous but I know it will be a great night. Yesterday I took 4 tests (thankfully passed each one) and learned glitter toes!!! I received and then gave.

Sorry about the pic of my own, but they are so much fun! I saw these for the first time at the last craft fair that I did and thought they were fun and now I know how to do them. So starting next week I will be needing "models" to come in so I can practice. Ky gets to be my first and she is pretty excited.

Part of taking this class means Ciara has to go to a sitter on Thursdays for about 3 hours until the kids get home. The rest of the days Randy is home and it works out well. Ciara has never been tended by anybody but her big sister, so I was very nervous. Apparently without a reason because I took her to Nicol's and she pretty much didn't even care if I was there or gone. She immediately went to exploring and trying everything out and didn't even want to give hugs and kisses when I left. Shortly after I left she told Nicol that she wanted a nap and laid down on a bed and went right to sleep. WOW or PHEW? I'm not sure which to feel maybe both? And add a little sadness that she didn't mind me leaving, at least I don't have to worry about her feeling abandoned when I leave her there.

Ok, I don't know you (other than being an UtahEtsy Team member) but...I'm so excited for you! I am a "nail tech" but have never officially practiced. My nail tech classes were a nightmare-half the time we never had a teacher-basically taught ourselves. I did pass both tests (to receive my license)with flying colors but I never wanted to officially be a tech cause I didnt feel like I received a good education. :( Ironically the school I graduated from offered me a job as their Nail Tech teacher which I turned down. I will wait to hear how your school is. Sounds good so far! I would love to get into it again. :)

OMG are those your toes?? I thought they were Ciaras.. they are so dang cute and tiny!! I love them and cant wait for my turn! Good job Im so proud of you. So sad when the little ones are just as happy with you as they are away.. Im betting after a few times she will be sad but right now its new and fun. Thank goodness she didnt freak cuz then you would really feel sad!

I totally wish I lived close enough to be a candidate for the pedicure. I love getting things done like that for me. Sharman thinks it is really fun. Love you. Keep up the good work!!!
