Enjoyed a freebie today!!

June 1st, 2008 at 05:18 am

About eight months ago, my job gave me a gift certificate for a little pampering at a local spa. ($150 value with all sorts of fancy stuff tacked on to a massage.)

I sat on it for all these months for several reasons...most high on the list was fear of the unknown...Not one to venture into spas very often ( ok, never)....So I decided I would use this certificate as a birthday treat (my birthday is June 3)...and when I called, I asked if I could trade in all the "extras" for a side by side massage with the hub. (They said sure and it was $10 cheaper)...

So my hurdle, was convincing Mr. Macho-lumberjack-man that he would enjoy the NOt an easy feat.

But, because of the birthday thing, he begrudgingly went...wearing his suspenders and steel toed boots. (good grief)...

Would you like a foot soak while you wait??? we were asked...Me: Absolutely...him: "Im good thanks"...

We had our necks swaddled in warm wraps...I had a yummy foot soak, we filled our a few papers and closed our eyes as we chose the massage oils. Funny, the hub said yes to the first one..he said it smelled just like sawdust..(I bet they did that on purpose)....I chose a mix of sandalwood and orange...

Then I was offered a nice pair for slippers as we walked to the room...the hub just clomped up in the steel toes...

We were asked to put all our clothes (to our comfort level)into these beautiful baskets and climb on the tables between sheets.. candles, comforting music, and such a cozy atmosphere...thankfully the hub discarded the suspenders and relaxed a little...

And an amazing 1 hour massage followed...

wow.WOW. Even the hub loved it.

THEN, we were provided yummy robes, cold water and were led downstairs to the sauna...where we sat and sweated feeling quite pampered for about 15 minutes...then a nice candlelight shower...and we left having enjoyed a very relaxing, pampered afternoon for FREE as a thank you for something I did at work about a year ago....WOW.

The rest of the day....from 7am until massage and even now as I type...has been a marathon babysitting day with all 3 of the grandbabies...#3 will be picked up in about an hour...What a full, blessed day.
And the price was so right!!!
