My poor husband...

Today is my husband's birthday. Happy Birthday, honey!

So yesterday, in his honor, I got a pedicure.

I know. It doesn't make sense that I would give myself a present for his birthday. But that's how my mind operates.

Oh. And also tomorrow is my birthday. So really I guess the pedicure is a gift to us from me.

That makes it sound a little better. Ahem.

Anyway, as I was getting my pedicure the sweet little Vietnamese pedicurist, turned up her nose and said, "Ewwww. You feet so dry!"

Talk about horrifying.

The woman who works with dirty, scaly, stinky feet ALL. DAY. LONG. turned up her nose at MY feet.

So. Happy Birthday to my poor husband! I'm not sure how he puts up with me and my so dry feet.

If possible, this makes me love him even more.

Happy Birthday!, from another person with dry feet. Except I have to wait until January for my birthday pedicure. Imagine how dry they will be then! Eww indeed.

Rebekah said...

Happy birthday- to you both.
To have someone who looks at feet all day comment how dry your feet look- lol, WoW. Maybe you should treat yourself more often... Thanksgiving, Chirstmas, Presidents Day.... (exactly how many holidays are there in one year?)

Denise said...

Happy Birthday to you, your dry feet, and your dear husband!! lol I have dry feet too sweetie, don't worry, be happy!!

Mari said...

Happy Birthday to both of you. Love your pedicure story. I'm sure she's seen feet worse than yours!

Happy Birthday, Beth (and hubby). Just think of it this way, your gift is actually THREE-FOLD! You can change the sheets on the bed and NOT tear holes in them with "you feet so dry."

Oh man, you have me laughing all the time!

Oh man, that would be like the OB/Gyn looking up and .... Oh, nevermind.

KEEP BELIEVING

An experince like that is exactly why I have avoided a pedicure my whole life.

I don't think feet are deeply pleasant but for someone else to tell me mine aren't I would be devastated.

Happy Birthday to you both!!

Happy Birthday, Beth!

Those women have absolutely no tact. I don't know if it's cultural or race-related, but they just say anything that comes to their mind. I once went to my regular salon and she looked me up and down and said .."you get fat?" True Story.

Joanne said...

Beth, I can totally understand your logic. It must be an estrogen connection that we have. Since going back to work part time, I make a point to have a monthly pedicure and even recently...my hubby and I began having monthly couple massages. That is just AWESOME! Do you guys have a Massage Envy out your way? It is kind of like a fast food massage place. I don't care, I like fast food massages, and I love me some quarter pounders with cheese too!

Now if I can just get a landscape person and a housekeeper, I will have it made!

Happy Birthday Beth! You have to check out this video on You Tube (I linked the post I did on it). It's hilarious about getting your nails done. Good for a great laugh. http://lloydmountain.blogspot.com/2008/05/funny.html
Smiles,

Happy birthday to your husband, and happy early birthday to you! I have dry feet too...my poor feet used to be much nicer...until I came to college in San Diego and wore flip flops everyday (and mostly still do). My poor feet suffer. It's not their fault that I hate shoes.

Heather said...

Birthdays and anniversary all in one week. I think you deserve to treat yourself to a pedicure since you don't get to space the special treatment out! Happy Birthday Beth!

Denise said...

Come by my blog, I have two more awards for you.

Brittany said...

My feet are gross, too. lol

Happy Birthday!!

Ann(ie) said...

Don't feel bad. One time the sweet little Vietnamese eyebrow waxer told me that I would really benefit from an entire face wax. I almost socked her in the head.

Happy Bday Hubby!

Ann(ie) said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, tooooooo!

Happy Birthday!!

And don't worry about what the manicurist said- she was probably just trying to upsell you on some of that $5 scrub stuff.

I hope you have a Happy Birthday. As for the pedicure, here is an experience...

I found you through CWO's meme list. I have personally thought many times of writing out and recording God's supernatural provision for us for the benefit of my children and to help build other peoples faith. I am excited to see your Miracle Monday Meme as I think it fits the bill for a place to link to and will (hopefully) inspire me to write things down more often.

I'm glad you didn't take it back down. Just like the Israelites, we need to "remember" all that God has done for us.

Happy Birthday! The better you feel about yourself the better you can treat the people around you, so in a roundabout way it really was a gift for him LOL

Tracy said...

Happy Birthday Beth and Dan!! Hope he enjoyed your soft feet! :) My husband begs me to get a pedicure, but I am too scared they may say EWWW!!! just like happened to you! No way!

happy birthday to y'all!!

I find that dry heels are the perfect way to scratch an itch on your leg in the middle of the night. Cheers to dry feet!
