Massage Therapy

Yesterday I took full advantage of a Christmas gift the DH gave me - a spa package at the Murrtown Day Spa. It was amazing. Every time I go there I always leave saying how that was the best day I've had there yet. Yesterday was no exception.

It started with my Swedish Massage. Sandra was my therapist and she did such an amazing job. I explained to her the problems I have been having with my neck and shoulders and the trouble I have been having sleeping. She went right to work on the many kinks I had in my shoulders and neck - and apparently there were quite a few! It was painful at first, but by the time she was finished I could already feel myself less tense.

Next was my European Facial. I didn't learn the young girl's name that administered my treatment, but she did a really good job. My face is undergoing some changes as I age so it's nice to hear from someone that it actually looks "good". It was very relaxing and soothing.

Then I had lunch while sitting in the "Relaxation Lounge". I had a tasty chicken curry salad on whole wheat bread, fresh potato chips and grapes. The chicken salad has a unique and yummy taste - green apples, walnuts and cranberries. Oh my!

Next it was on to my spa pedicure. Vicki and I had a great chat while she gave my feet the treatment - sloughing off dead skin, massaging my feet with apricot scrub and then putting on this blue gel that had spearmint in it. My feet tingled! She ended by putting on a nice subdued red - perfect for winter.

Lastly I was treated to a wonderful arm and hand massage and manicure by Vicki. Because of the work I do crocheting this treatment actually feels amazing. It was a great way to end my perfect day! For the guys out there - if you are ever stumped on what to get your wife or GF or Mother, I highly recommend a spa package at any local day spa. It's well worth the cost!

I went to bed early last night and when I woke up this morning I was pleasantly surprised to find I had sold 3 items on Etsy. I can't explain the feeling I get when I go to my page and see that items have sold. I get this little "jump" of adrenaline and get the urge to make more things! Yeah for me!

SONG OF THE BLOG: "Womanizer" by Britney Spears. Go ahead, laugh if you must but this song is cool. Learning the words and being able to sing along kicks ass. =) "Boy don't try and front I-I know J-Just what you are are are...."
