This Is...

This is Jasper's favorite spot to sleep. Makes typing a bit difficult. I never have the heart to move him...for at least two minutes.

This is my Twilight pedi. I dreamed up the idea while sitting in the massaging chair with my feet soaking in luke warm water. Shockingly enough, the pedi lady totally understood exactly what I wanted. (In case you can't tell, it's a tiny apple with a black gemstone.)

This is me trying to hold my toes together so they would look normal. Bill took no less than 13 pictures of my feet, trying to get one that didn't look like two deformed hands coming out from the bottom of my jeans.

This is me waiting patiently between toe shots. Bill for some reason loved this picture. He called it "a keeper," which I love, because I don't have a stitch of makeup on.

And this is a fun Spring giveaway my fabulous sister-in-law is doing on her blog. I wanted to be entered twice, so here I am, announcing it on my blog. Go enter and buy her pretty stuff.

If only I could get away with no makeup....

Your apple slightly resembles a bunny, a very famous bunny :)

And I was thinking how good your feet looked in the first picture.

I think your feet are cute! I remember how you'd said one time that Bill asked if they charge less for a pedi because of your little pinky toe. That's what my pinky toe looks like, isn't that what everyone's looks like? Super cute pic of you, it IS a keeper.

Jen--that was the FIRST thing I thought when I saw them, but no one else thought so. Just shows how much we think alike.

Cute toes!!!

I think Bill's right, that picture of you is great! Your skin is so beautiful, Alicia! I don't know why you'd even need make up.

And your pedicure is adorable! I especially love the one of you holding your toes together ;)

I love your Twilight pedi! I want to get one!

Amy said...

Wow, I wish I looked that good without makeup. Scratch that... I wish I looked that good WITH makeup!
Cute toes!

*sigh* and just like that, multiple girls at my house are going to want to go get pedicures... :)

Alicia said...

Hee hee, Mike. It'll be worth every penny.

I think it is so hard to get a good photo of feet!

That photo of Jasper is so cute! I have a bunch of clients cats that sleep on laptops and printers because of the heat that comes off of them. Pretty adorable!

Marilyn said...

Oh my goodness, this post made me laugh...I don't know why... I guess because it's so Alicia. Trying to fix your toes, having Bill take pictures over and over and the comment about the deformed hands, and then that adorable picture Bill said is a keeper (he's right, you look cute.)

I love this post.

I'm still trying to see how your feet look like deformed hands. They don't look like weird feet to me. But I totally understand obsessing over a perceived body flaw. I do it so much so that what once wasn't an issue at all to my husband is now something he notices. Oops. (It's on me, not him.) And you do look cute in that keeper shot, even sans makeup!

Noelle said...

oh this post is awesome. and i know why bill loves that picture. it's becuase it shows a lot of your feelings for him. your look is pure flirting with him - you aren't looking annoyed or bored, you look tickled and happy, purely having fun...at him. no man cares if you have make up on if you are looking at him like that.
love your toes. so cute.

Aubrey said...

Once again, here I am clear at the bottom! I just can't seem to catch your posts early enough!!! hee hee! I totally love you toes, even though I am not a Twilight fan. So fun. And I totally went giggly when I read what Bill said about you, sweet husband!

Alicia said...

Kristi- That's because I didn't post those ones. If my foot was relaxed, they looked like deformed hands, seriously like something you would see in a medical book. This was the ONE shot that I felt made them look sort of like normal feet.

Brenda said...

Love the toes! That picture of you is so good - you look stunning, there is so much emotion in your eyes...

Brave woman! Toes and no make-up?! So cute. This post was great. I loved it. Would you get the same playboy apple on your thumbs for our manicures next time? :)
