Hair + Toes

July 2, 2010

Fun fun fun but busy busy day!!! I’m JUST now getting to blog!! No more 12:26 autoposts for lunch :)

After breakfast I did some computer work, then went to the post office to mail in my internship paperwork, then to the bank, then to Target for a few items then to lunch with Miss Red Head Recipes! Lauri just finished her internship yesterday too!

We went to Dean + Deluca for their delicious salads!

Mine had greens, veggies, avocado, olives, capers, blue cheese, garbanozs.

Don’t ask me why customers need TWO GIANT dressing containers!!

I like getting two for the variety, but they were humongous!

Bubbles to drink

I also got a slice of bread for $.25 because I felt I needed some carbs but it was dry and boring and I didn’t eat much of it.

Next stop: I got all my hairs cut!

Megan did a great job – and thought to take a photo of the front and back!

Pamper day continued at the nail spa. My toes and hair had been neglected for many moons!!

Entertainment. Sadly I did more iPhoning than reading!

Ballantyne Nail Spa is my favorite in Charlotte. They do all the good stuff: 3x leg treatments, long massage, and hot wax!!!!! Plus they have good chairs, a nice clean, airy feel and friendly staff.

And wine!! I actually just asked for some water to begin…then I saw the wine pour next to me and asked for a tiny sample glass. I didn’t quite finish this – just wanted some sips! I almost always get pedis in the morning and never want wine, so I decided I needed to take advantage of the fact that I was there in the afternoon!

Home now. Ready for a snack! Then gotta laundry and pack for the beach. We’re leaving first thing in the AM!

Looks like you had a fun afternoon! Love the haircut! I love getting haircuts-I always schedule them for midterm week! Also love seeing how far you’ve come- I’m on the other end, I start working toward my RD this fall


2 Kori July 2, 2010 at 4:13 pm

It looks like you’ve had an awesome and relaxing day. :) I hope packing goes by quickly and you are able to get a good night’s rest before your trip. Have fun!!! :)))


3 Stacie @ Imperfectly Healthy July 2, 2010 at 4:16 pm

I love the hair! She did great! :) I’m trying to grow mine out to pretty much that exact length – but it’s so hard to just let it grow and not be annoyed with it and chop it short!


4 Freya @ Brit Chick Runs July 2, 2010 at 4:16 pm

Haircut – what a lovely way to spend your day of freedom!
I didn’t know you used autopost..I just assumed you always ate your lunch at 12.26 :p
Have a great afternoon :)


5 Jessica @ How Sweet It Is July 2, 2010 at 4:19 pm

What a fabulous afternoon! And your hair looks great. :)


6 lisa July 2, 2010 at 4:52 pm

I love your hair cut, it look great!


7 erica July 2, 2010 at 4:58 pm

loooove the new haircut! :)
wow…i don’t think i’ve ever had a pedicure like that…with wine too?!?! i’ve gotta find me a place like that!


8 Michelle @ Turning Over a New Leaf July 2, 2010 at 5:08 pm

So fun! I love grocery store salad bars!

Your hair looks cute!

I never knew you could get wine at a nail salon, but then again, I’ve only been to a nail salon once, and it was in a Walmart.


9 Carly July 2, 2010 at 5:12 pm

Sounds like an amazing day! Your hair looks great! :)


10 Kim King July 2, 2010 at 5:12 pm

Congrats on finishing your internship. Hope you and Matt have a fun and relaxing time at the beach.


11 Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter July 2, 2010 at 5:15 pm

What a wonderful day full of pampering. You deserve it Kath!


12 Lee July 2, 2010 at 5:17 pm

I wonder if any nail salons around here have wine? That’s so fun.


13 Marina July 2, 2010 at 5:20 pm

I’m glad you enjoyed some pampering, you deserve it :)
Which reminds me, I need to pay some attention to my feet too 😀


14 Simply Life July 2, 2010 at 5:25 pm

oh what a fun day!


15 Elaine @ Om Sweet Om July 2, 2010 at 5:33 pm

I LOVE the new hair! What a fun + relaxing day too! You deserve it after all your hard work :-)


16 Heather (Heather's Dish) July 2, 2010 at 5:38 pm

i am so incredibly jealous of your pedi and your fabulous hair! i’m hoping to finally look presentable in about a week and a half when my stylist gets back in town…but til then my hair will be living vicariously through yours :)


17 [email protected]'s Going The Distance July 2, 2010 at 5:39 pm

Man, you sure know how to treat yourself after a crazy busy internship!!!

And WHAT THE HECK?!?!? I want pedis at places that serve wine near me! That’s ridiculous!! :)


18 Kerri @ Kerri Turns into a Zombie July 2, 2010 at 5:50 pm

Good luck packing.


19 Kaitlin July 2, 2010 at 5:51 pm

Kath, your hair looks so pretty! Oh, and that dressing is ridiculous. I have never understood why people would need two containers of dressing!


20 lauri Watson July 2, 2010 at 5:54 pm

I enjoyed lunch with you today! It was SO nice to catch up and RELAX after these rough n tough past 6 months! Can’t believe we are D-O-N-E! 2.5-3 years of hard work and here we are!!!! Your hair cut looks SO cute!


21 Kathleen July 2, 2010 at 5:57 pm

OMG this is my fav hair cut I have ever seen on you! you’re so gorgeous and this cut really flatters you!!!


22 Kaci Higgins July 2, 2010 at 6:07 pm

Your day sounds fabulous, & I LOVE your haircut!! That salad looks scrumptious & wouldn’t need more than a few drops of dressing…it’s sad how wastful restaurants are! I found out recently that Verizon will most likely pick up the iPhone in January which I definitely want, but I was just wondering, would you recommend it? I’ve heard both positives & negatives about it from users so I thought you would be a great source of advice since you use it a lot to take pictures & blog. Good luck packing, I’m so jealous of you going to the beach! :)


23 Lisa @ bakebikeblog July 2, 2010 at 6:09 pm

What a wonderfully relaxxing day! The weather looks glorious!!


24 Emily July 2, 2010 at 6:19 pm

Isn’t finishing the internship the BEST feeling in the world! Glad you got to celebrate with some well-deserved relaxation. Your hair is super cute, too. Have a great time at the beach!


25 Lana July 2, 2010 at 6:20 pm

Here’s a yummy salad I’ve had of late:
green romaine
black beans
chicken breast slices (seasoned with fajita-like flavours, ie chili seasoning)
shredded cheese
tomato-basil dressing / salsa
fiesta! :)


26 Kaz July 2, 2010 at 6:25 pm

Your pedi looks so indulgent! Yay for treating yourself! 😀

Have fun at the beach!


27 Jessica @ The Process of Healing July 2, 2010 at 6:28 pm

Exciting!!! I wish I was going to the beach!
And WHAT a place to get a pedicure!


28 Sarah (Running to Slow Things Down) July 2, 2010 at 6:37 pm

Your hair is gorgeous! I love the extra flip that she added with the blowdryer. Very cute! 😀

What a great way to celebrate being done with the internship! It’s so fun to be pampered once in a while. 😀


29 kate July 2, 2010 at 7:01 pm

I could totally take advantage of a pamper day right now! Looks like you enjoyed your day :)


30 The Wife of a Dairyman July 2, 2010 at 7:15 pm

What a perfect day! Have a fun time at the beach:)


31 [email protected]:// July 2, 2010 at 7:22 pm

That is such a fun day and you deserve every bit of it. Your hair looks great. I hope you have a great trip and a fantastic relaxing holiday weekend.


32 j July 2, 2010 at 7:23 pm

You are so cute, glad you had a day to pamper. I’m going to the beach tomorrow, too but the NJ shore with extended family and TEENAGERS, ugh, including two of my own. Enjoy your solitude while you can. Looks like a great week for us with forecast highs in the upper 90’s and sunny every day :) How’s your weather forecast?


33 [email protected] July 2, 2010 at 7:30 pm

What a great time! Love the hair!


34 Robyn @ Frugal 'n' Fit! July 2, 2010 at 7:36 pm

I think it is official: You are “living the life”! And a well-deserved one at that :)


35 Hannah July 2, 2010 at 7:41 pm

Lovely haircut! And salad with blue cheese and chickpeas? Yes please!


36 Julia July 2, 2010 at 7:55 pm

Awesome day! Your hair looks great.

The only sad thing about this post is that I am dieing for a salad now. :)

Have a great weekend.


37 lynn (The Actors Diet) July 2, 2010 at 7:58 pm

the cut looks great!
i love saving salad dressings for future meals – to put in other salads or marinade/sauce. it’s a bonus!


38 Mary @ Bites and Bliss July 2, 2010 at 8:02 pm

Your hair looks fantastic! I love the layers :)


39 Wei-Wei July 2, 2010 at 9:26 pm

Wow, what a fun afternoon! Haircut and a spa – you’re getting spoiled, girl 😉 Your hair looks great, though.



40 Hillary [Nutrition Nut on the Run] July 2, 2010 at 9:33 pm

What fun! I’m way overdue for a pedi…


41 Amber K July 2, 2010 at 10:12 pm

Absolutely beautiful salad! But I definitely wouldn’t need anywhere near that much dressing!


42 Stacey @ Tipping the (Kitchen!) Scales July 3, 2010 at 3:43 pm

Looks like a great day. Nice to see you having time to relax after working so hard. The hair looks great too!
