Free Couch!

Last week while at work, Aaron got keys from a tenant moving out of his apartment complex and this guy told Aaron that he didn't want anything that he left in his apartment (I think he was travelling across country) he went over there are found this AWESOME couch--the guy just didn't want it anymore! (The only things he took with him were his computer, dvd player, etc.) We felt pretty lucky to find it, as it's A MILLION times more comfortable than our last one, and it looks a lot better too! Take a look at a these before/after pics:

BEFORE: Uncomfortable and out of style

AFTER: Can you believe this was free?

So we definitely scored. Cool huh?

What a Pedicure!

Yesterday Lani and I met up after work to get pedicures. Our appointments were at 6:15 and we got spa pedicures which included a parafin wax dip and extra leg treatment. It was wonderful and I decided to go out on a limb with a somewhat dark color. I thought it would be fun to have a little flower so when she asked, I specified that I would like a "small flower". She began with a white flower toward the corner of my nail and I thought "cute". Then she started doing dots and I got a little worried. Then she started doing small white lines and I thought "well at least she's almost done". Meanwhile, Lani has been finished for some time and we are just talking while the lady puts on what I thought were her finishing touches. But, just when I thought she was done she pulls out the silver glitter and Lani and I look at eachother with a "this is a little over the top" look. Okay, okay. Let the lady do her thing, but then she pulls out a the green and does a leaf. And then gets out the rhinestones and puts a green rhinestone in the middle of the flower. Needless to say, when Lani and I left, well over an hour later, we burst out laughing the moment we walked out of the nail salon.
This is what I ended up with.

Farewell to summer

Summer officially ended for me yesterday, as I started my first day back to school--and now that I'm not working as much, Emily will officially begin her role as my suga mama haha :) It actually was a really stressful day--I ended up missing my first class because the traffic was SO bad! I had left in plenty of time "so I thought" and didn't make it to campus until 9:45 (yea, my first class STARTED at 9!) Luckily, I already got in touch with my teacher in that class and all I missed was the typical first day where they hand out the syllabus, have students introductions, and leave no biggie. Anyway...wish me luck! Here's a few pictures of campus for those not familiar with it...
