No pain, no gain!

This weekend went by in a flash!

Friday night I had all these plans to be productive at home but ended up going out to eat with my sister at Carrabba’s, yum yum! I LOVE the Chicken Bryan! Then didn’t get home till late so by then it was a lost cause to try to get anything done, ha!

Saturday I had to go get fitted to have my bridesmaid dress altered and that took no time and then meet up with my BFF Mel and did some running around and the main stop was Bed Bath and Beyond to get my friend's bridal shower and wedding gift. So got that accomplished, so there’s one check mark for the books! Then Mel and my sister went with me to go get my tattoo.

No pain, no gain!





The sketch on my foot before he actually started the tattoo!


I was really not in as much pain as I looked! I just like to be dramatic sometimes, haha!


The end result!


I'm really pleased with the way it turned out! It's simple, meaningful, and don't believe I'll regret 50 years down the road, ha!

Then afterwards, Mel and I went to Mission Inn (a country club) for soup, salad, and a drink!

Cheers to my first tattoo :)


Then we went back to her house and hung out and this is her precious pug Penelope!

She wouldn't cooperate, ha!


That's more like it :)


Sunday we slept in a little and then took a trip to the beach for a few hours and then came home. With all of this being said, I should mention that my grandma has been in the hospital since Friday for her blood clot that I mentioned before. Had a procedure done Saturday and has another one done today, so the weekend was filled with that as well. Please keep her in your prayers and hopefully she'll be out of the hospital this week and will be on the road to recovery!

How was everyone's weekend?? :)

Also wanted to let you know about a wonderful CD giveaway going on. Go by BooMama's blog and check it out here :O)

You did it!!!!! I LOVE what you picked out!

Did that hurt? I heard the foot is one of the most painful & it looks like its right across that bone!!! Awesome!!!

Becky said...

Wow you are braver than me for sure! I do like the tattoo though, very cute! Congrats on your first TAT!

Kendra said...

At least you picked a spot that doesn't get big and flabby with age. All those cute butterflies and birds people get on their hips or back will look monstrous as they age!. You were a brave one. No tats for me, but good for you!

Jodi said...

I laughed out loud when you said " I just like to be dramatic sometimes".

Ha!

It looks cute! You are very brave indeed.

Elizabeth said...

You're so brave! I'm too much of a wimp to get one, but if I did it would be a star on my foot. Love yours!
