So I’ve been dreaming about going to the spa recently… It’s bad timing since Steve just lost his job, but a girl’s got needs! It’s been a long time since I had a day at the spa. My sister-in-law just got married and I was a bridesmaid, so I got my hair and nails done, but that’s just not the same! The hair lasted one night, the nails lasted a few days… and it was a busy, busy day–not so much a relaxing one, haha.
The last time I had a massage was right after Ryan was born. My wonderful husband sent me for a full spa day with a spa voucher so I could get out of the house for some peace and quiet. Even though I had to wear nursing pads and still leaked all over–haha, no more embarrassing moments as a mom–it was amazing.
So… what exactly do I want? I love a good manicure, but pedicures are the best! You women that don’t like your feet massaged… crazy! It’s like the best thing in the world. And the deluxe or premium ones? Where they use a scrub and maybe even a wax? I’m drooling over here.
A massage is obviously a must at a spa day… and I don’t think anyone needs a back massage as much as mamas! Carrying around the little ones all day, getting all hunched over when you nurse, ouch. Oh my gosh, I can feel my upper back muscles tensing, just thinking about it.
I’ve had a facial ONCE. When Steve sent me to the spa. I thought I’d hate it–I mean, someone touching your FACE? Weird. But it was one of my favorite parts and oddly enough it wasn’t weird at all. It felt wonderful and they didn’t just do my face–they massaged all the way down my arms and did my hands too.
Now we’re in trouble. Now I desperately want (no, NEED?!) a massage and a pedicure. Maybe one of those daily deal sites will have a deal here soon for cheap spa breaks <– yep, can you even imagine that? A whole weekend of SPA?! Who else is in heaven right now? Just gotta close your eyes and imagine 😉
What’s your favorite part of going to the spa?
