From there we went to the nail salon, but they were busy, so they told us to come back in a little while. We went to a store in town to browse around and then afterwards stopped at the coffee shop and had a frozen coffee. Mmmm.... (Yes Joanne, I thought of you....)
By the time we were done endulging ourselves with the coffee and sitting and chatting, it was time to head on over to the salon. Here is my friend Donna :). This gift was such a treat for me. I have never had a pedicure, and only had my nails done once before.. also gifted from Donna. Why I don't do it more for myself, I don't know. I'm thinking every once in a while, I'm going to just do it! My "first" french manicure too.
My turn :)
When we left there, we headed out to Frederick, Md to a mall to look for a dress for the wedding. I actually found 2 ! Bought them both and will either return one... or not :). We walked and walked and walked, in and out of stores. Donna did a little shopping for herself too. I'm still in need of a pair of high heels. I thought the shoes would be easier to find than the dress. I was wrong. Wow, the styles are pretty ugly (oxymoron, eh?)
For dinner we went to a place I have never been too. It was called Macaroni Grill. Oh my goodness, I haven't had bread (REAL) bread in such a long time. A real nice Italian place to eat. They had a bottle of olive oil on the table for the bread that they bring you. Mmm.... One of the appetizers we got was called mac and cheese bites with a truffle dip.
And here is our waiter Don. He was so good to us. Told me I had the "best" fake I.D. he had ever seen. Such a sweet talker, telling me I didn't look my age. And Yes, he received a very nice tip! lol He was actually singing Happy Birthday to me in Italian when he delivered what is below!
Oh my goodness!! It was delicious and Donna and I split it. It was a Ghirardelli Chocolate Cake..warm ganache, chocolate toffee, whipped cream. Can you say Heaven???? And of course I made a wish..
We arrived back in Shippensburg after 10 last night. I am looking forward to taking Donna out for her Birthday in a few short weeks. Not sure what we will do yet, but you can bet I'll be posting about it :)
Today was another day of pampering myself. I was up early and out before 9:00 to get my hair done. Took the rest of the day to do Nothing! Oh, I did have my picture taken for the church directory, but other than those 2 things, I haven't left the house.. I was going to do some stitching, but I'll save that for tomorrow. Played some games on line, made dinner and now I'm going to relax before heading up to bed early. Looking forward to seeing what awaits me tomorrow! No big plans. Church, some stitching and relaxing....
Hope you enjoyed your Saturday :)
