Spike of Egg Nog! (Surprise visit from Tory!)

Good morning readers!

Today's post is pretty much about the Spike of my Eggnog! 

My bestest (female) friend in the whole wide world made her surprise visit back to Nebraska this Christmas!! Today was an "all about Tory and her friends" day. I was told to be at her folks' house promptly at 10:00 am and that my son was "required." Nathaniel, Max the puppy, and I arrived just after 10:00am. Of course, we were the first to show up. For breakfast, Tory made eggs benedict and we had mimosas all around! 

Then, SURPRISE! Tory decided to gift us with a mani/pedi day! 

The three of us (Me, Tory, and Theresa) all went down to Venus Nails Studio. Gam-Gam was more than happy to stay home with her grandson. 

We all agreed to have our toes done to same (Santa and Grinch). For our fingers, I had a red/blue/sparkles/snowflakes, Tory has basic pink (she is still in the Navy), and Theresa (who is a mom to two awesome girls) got Frozen themed nails. 

When we got back, there were plenty of appetizers to go around and I got sent home with plenty of that, too! 

Having a girls day out is just what I believe we all needed this Christmas. Now, all we have to do is look at our toes to remind ourselves how truly lucky we are to have each other in our lives. 

Merry Blogmas!!!
