One day I was sitting in my friend Heidi's apartment, when her roommate Carly asked her if she could come in to get a "chemical peel". She is a student at a local beauty school and needed friends to come in so that she could perform certain beauty treatments for her final test so that she could graduate. I asked her what else she was doing and the only thing I recognized was "pedicure", so, realizing it was an opportunity to have someone give me a foot massage for free, I volunteered. Only later did she tell me that I had to have my toes painted as part of her test, and it HAD to be red. So here I am, red toenails and all, getting my first but definitely not last pedicure (it felt soooo good, then again, it was free... haha). And don't worry, as soon as she was done she took the polish off for me.
At just the end of last week, my Aunt Cindy and Uncle Brett and their family vacationed up in Park City. They invited Nicole, Jake, Dad, Kate, and I to come up one day to hang out, have dinner, and go swimming. The resort they stayed at was really nice. This is dad and I riding the tram from the parking lot up to the resort.
These are the Assomada spiders. Assomada was the first area that I served in and I was there for 4 1/2 months. These spiders weren't out as much while I was there, but on this P-day trip back they sure were! They aren't poisonous but they quite a site. This is Elvis showing us that they aren't as bad as they seem.
This is the largest and oldest tree in Cabo Verde. It's in Assomada and is a popular place for P-day.
On the 7th Heidi and I got to go to the Boys Like Girls concert and Nevershoutnever! played as well (why we really went) and The Ready Set opened. It was sooo much fun!! Despite the fact that I was the tallest person and stuck out like a sore thumb as me, heidi, and what seemed like a million highschool/middleschool girls jammed up front to rock out haha. I distinctly remember hearing a group of midgets behind me complain that they couldn't see... but I was standing in the center, 5 ft from the stage and wasn't going to move for anything.
