Cuticle is a nail salon that opened this year (??? some time when I was on maternity leave) near my office. It’s basically below the Mariano’s, across from the park. The prices are a little more expensive compared to where I usually go, but I kind of expect that from a downtown salon. I talked to the owner a bit about this and asked also if they’ll get a loyalty card. She said she’s thinking about it for this fall/winter. I’ve gotten manicures, pedicures and an eyebrow wax here and everything is always high quality.

Jess and I met up for the Logan Square Preservation 2014 House and Garden Walk. We didn’t see any gardens, actually (blame it on a bad map!), but did tour a few of the houses on the map. I thought it was going to be more like open the door look around, leave, but there were actually docents that talked about the architecture and history of each house and showed you all around. We didn’t go to all of the houses, but it was fun to look inside the ones we did hit… ones that I walk past all the time!

A few months ago we saw a kids band play at Liberty Bank, so when I saw they were having a free puppet show, I brought Makai over for the show. I wasn’t sure how he’d do… with the band, the kids were running around and dancing and didn’t need to be still. But he was totally engrossed and sat on my lap for almost an hour watching the show and all of the other kids. The show was very entertaining for the kids and I thought it was cute too. I even laughed out loud a few times.
