I actually relaxed!!!

Yes, you read that right and if you know me even a smidge you know that this girl's brain and body goes about 100 mph ALL.THE.TIME. I rarely even sit down during the day and some nights I realize at 7pm that it's the first time I've sat down all day. Well, this weekend was different. I relaxed. And it FELT.GOOD!

Our little weekend began with a playdate with Buggernut's BFF, P and her mama, who is a close friend of mine. We took the girlies to the park armed with a grocery bag of Ben & Jerry's Minis. The girls played SOOOO well (no fighting, they shared and loved spending time together!) and P's mama and I got to really get some good girl time in. It was sooo nice.

Saturday I relaxed all morning and just did a few things around the house at a slow pace and then got to go grocery shopping ALONE. Don't laugh. I rarely get to go anywhere errand wise alone so it's like a vacation to stroll lazily down the aisles at Trader Joe's. :)

Yesterday was the kicker. I was at the spa by 10am. IT WAS SOOOOOOOOOOOO RELAXING. Even the room I waited in during treatments was relaxing and I got 2 chapters read in my book UNINTERRUPTED! Woot. I got an eyebrow wax/reshape followed by a facial consult (I go back in a month for an antioxidant facial). Then I got a combination massage which was a mix of hot rock therapy, swedish and deep tissue. The only thing I would have liked better was if she was rougher. I find that I need a male therapist to really get all the knots out because I like the deeper pressure...okay that sounds um, nevermind. Then I got a mani and spa pedicure (which included a foot masque!). It was lovely. I was really annoyed at the Mister when he went and spent all this money on this for me, but when I got home I thanked him profusely and reminded him that Mother's Day is in a few weeks! Bwahhahahhhahaaha.....

Hoping your weekend was relaxing and stress-free. We have a jam packed week filled with several playdates, an all day craft day, and possibly a trip to the zoo. Hopefully I can fit some knitting in there sometime. My yarn from WEBS should be here this week too so I can start on the Clapotis (you know what that means Sarah!). And Spiff, you better bring a bigger bag or bra to knit club this week so you can smuggle your yarn home. ;) muahahahahaha...

Oh, I am so jealous, but it sounds like you had an amazing time. Last year, Nick did the same thing for me and I was so grateful, an entire spa day. Loved it. this year, I get the all day craft day, can't wait for that either.
